    NCAA Basketball 10 for the PS3 - Game Visuals


    (Page 3 of 4 )

    While the arenas and crowds look like the real thing, the actual player models are a bit off. They do look good, but the reason I say they’re off is that they look too big and muscular. Most college players haven’t hit the weight room as hard as their NBA counterparts, so the models in NCAA 10 look like they may be on steroids.

    Also, many of the players look like clones in terms of size and their faces, so you really don’t get a huge difference between a guy who is 6’2 and another who is 6’7. You do get some cool hair styles, though. Other than that, the uniforms look great and authentic, and you can even see the players’ shorts wag back and forth as they move.

    EA Sports claims to have added over 100 visual improvements to the game’s animations and look, which is always a welcome change for those who buy the same sports game franchise year after year. You do get some cool animations, like alley-oops, some new dunks, players tipping the ball for rebounds, and hitting the hardwood after a loose ball. The celebrations after a good play are also fun to watch.

    On the other hand, some of the animations are too frequent and unrealistic. For instance, players seem to fall a lot throughout the game for no reason. While in real life players do fall from driving to the basket and getting tripped up, they don’t hit the ground from phantom collisions when nobody is around them, which tends to happen at times in NCAA 10.

    Another oddity is that sometimes you can make a pass and it will travel right through an opponent as if he was the Invisible Man. And then there's the gameplay or player movement issue of momentum. At times your momentum is way too overbearing, and you will find yourself flying out of bounds helplessly, leading to several turnovers throughout the game. These are all glitches that will hopefully get fixed in the future.
