Eschewing the more common side-view perspective, NCAA Basketball takes advantage of the Super NES hardware's Mode 7 graphical capabilities by showcasing rotating camera angles and an over-the-shoulder perspective. While there may be no sideline or crowd, the game looks and plays like a winner. Jump shots, lay-ups, and three-pointers are a big part of the game, but players can also execute a variety of sensational slam dunks, such as the reverse slam, the turn-around stuff, and the hang-time dunk. Accessing a coach's screen enables players to call timeouts, view game and season stats, substitute players, and select plays (seven offensive and seven defensive). The sound effects and music are sparse, but the simple controls, slick graphics, and arcade-style action will keep armchair athletes more than satisfied.
