Thanks to Gamespot the first videos of actual gameplay are now out for NCAA Basketball 10. Two are from CBS presented games with Michigan @ Boston College and Auburn @ Kansas and one uses the ESPN presentation with Stanford @ Georgetown. Each runs just over a minute long.

What I liked outside of the TV replicated presentation was the player movement on offense which looks very active and fluid. The commentary (CBS especially) feels a little empty at times which is probably because this is the first year and it takes a few to really build up a library. It is a little jarring to go from a period of silence to the shouting of Gus Johnson. The variety from having two broadcast teams makes up for what will probably be lacking some this year.

Continue on to view the videos and leave your thoughts in the comments!

    granted im a NBA2K guy…but the player movements look so unnatural. I hate how EA plays, very stiff, the shooting motions are so awkward looking. Maybe its just me, but i wish they made the game animations smoother. anyone else agree?

      I switched from 2K to Live this year and I think 2k is more stiff than Live. The Freestyle control is a lot better, although I think 2k is a more complete, polished game at this point.

    Idk about this cuz theres not that much commentary on cbs. very disappointed. I wanna compare cbs sports to espn and see the difference cuz it may look like alot.

      Agreed which is a concern. But remember they've had those ESPN commentators in for a while so they've built up a lot more commentary. CBS is behind and will take some time to catch up.

    ….not feeling this.
    does the court look small to anyone else ?
    every thing looks so tiny

    • slacker77

      I am still excited about the game. But I agree with you. Watch Pasta'a video of NBA Live and then compare to the NCAA Vids. It appears they shrank the court. I think this is how they "speeded up" gameplay. Smaller court = more up and down.

      I really hope this all gets cleaned up. We are one month out today and we still have not heard anything about features. EA's marketing department needs to be fired. They have done this with all the EA Sports games this year and it is ridiculous. Can we please hear about what features are in the game. It will help me decide if I am going to purchase it.

    Maybe its because the college court is smaller than the NBA court in real life???

    • slacker77

      No the dimensions of a NBA & NCAA regulation court are 94' long by 50' wide.

      So unfortunately is appears we have a case of "Honey I Shunk the Court".

      Look at the size of the paint compared to Live 10 and the look at the spacing in Live 10 and then in NCAA.

      Pasta, what do you think? Are we all just seeing things? Was it like this with NCAA Basketball 09. I do not remember the court being like that.

    I think the gameplay looks much better than last year. It is really hard to tell with the video quality. I will hold my opinion of the visuals until the demo is released. The one thing that doesn't look changed are the numbers on the jerseys. For some reason, the numbers look too small and the details of the jerseys look somewhat generic. Again, this is looking at a grainy vid…

    If it plays like Live 10, the game will be excellent. I hated the suck-in animations last year.

    Can't wait to try the demo….

    • http://live.xbox.com/en-US/default.aspx JohnZapp

      Ya the quality was pretty bad. i wonder what it would look like on ur tv?

      • http://intensedebate.com/people/Skihawks Skihawks

        Exactly. Live looked way better when I actually got to play it. I love to see vids because it gives a good idea as to what the visuals are but when you actually play it you can actually catch the little details that make current games look impressive…

        Either way, this game is looking much better than last year….

    NBA Live out the box (pre-sliders) was already too fast, and now they already confirmed that this game will be even faster which I think is a horrible idea for this engine. The college game is faster…in terms of pushing the ball up the court, quick passes (less isolation, less holding of the ball), I think they need to tone this game down a little bit.
