The Horns play in Erwin Center in College Hoops 2k6And it looks really average.

2K Sports is releasing the game March 14th just in time for March Madness and a couple of weeks before most people forget about college basketball. It essentially looks like a slightly better version of the Xbox game they released in November. They’ve slowed the gameplay down a little to more accurately recreate the college game, but many problems remain. Basketball simulations in general are a big step below the more arcade style games such as NBA Street.

Sports games have definitely been the most disappointing thing about the Xbox 360 lineup. Average ports like this one from 2K Sports and quickly thrown together, half-finished games like Madden from EA Sports typify what the genre has had to offer so far. Hopefully the football games that come out this Summer and Fall for the 360 and PlayStation 3 will be a true “next-gen” experience with more development time.

Let’s hope LaMarcus Aldridge & the real Longhorns look better this weekend in the Big 12 Tournament than they do in this game.
