While NCAA Basketball 10 isn't a slam dunk, it's still a satisfying representation of the sport. The game nails down presentation and atmosphere. The two broadcast teams are lively, while the screen bounces up and down as crowds jump around to cheer on the home team. Players can also hear the school band play and watch mascots rile up the crowd. Motion offense is a great addtion, giving players more control over computer-controlled teammates. However, the game can be buggy at times. Players will often run out of bounds with the ball without a stop in play. While taking outside shots is pretty simple, playing an inside game isn't very elegant. Overall, the action looks solid but doesn't run as smoothly as other sports titles. Despite the shortcomings, this is still a worthwhile hoops game.

Online interaction: Players can battle human opponents online, and the game includes open voice chat, so the potential to hear bad language is there.
