NCAA Basketball 10
NCAA Basketball 10 is a college basketball video game licensed by the National Collegiate Athletic Association, and is the last title in the NCAA Basketball series. Features include broadcasting presentations of ESPN and CBS Sports, the 20 Toughest Places to Play, Real-life RPI ratings and stats from all Division I schools each week, as well as several improvements, such as player movement, off-ball collisions, alley-oops, and size-ups.
NCAA Basketball 10 received fairly positive reviews, with an average score of 77%, praised for its presentation and graphics, but criticized for glitches in AI and a lack of different modes to play.
NCAA Basketball 10 was first released in November 2009, and included 4 online trophies. Unfortunately, the online servers were closed on August 11, 2011, which means those 4 trophies can no longer be unlocked. Therefore, the Platinum for this game is now Not Obtainable.
The servers were shut down on August 11, 2011, which means the 4 online trophies can no longer be unlocked. Therefore, the Platinum for this game is Not Obtainable. However, there are still 16 offline trophies that can be obtained, so if you're interested, then read on.
The first trophy you can easily knock out is Show-Off. When the game begins, you will be playing as Blake Griffin at an outdoor basketball court. Use him to get 20 straight baskets, and the trophy will unlock.
After that, another quick trophy would be Who's Behind The Door? Head into EA Sports Extras and select Credits to unlock this one.
Next, before you embark on the game itself, you can head into Gameplay Settings and adjust the sliders to make things easier, if you wish.
With things set at an easier pace, you can head into Play Now, set the difficulty to All-Conference with a half length at 2 minutes, and no score. Wait until there's one second left, then shoot the ball. Win the game this way, and you'll unlock the Buzzer Beater trophy. Then, play as a C or lower ranked team, and work towards getting the Lethal Weapon Three, Upset City, and 40-Minute All-American trophies.
With those out of the way, you can select Pre-Season Tournaments from the menu and work on getting the five pre-season tournament related trophies.
Finally, you'll want to achieve the Dynasty Mode related trophies. Your main target will be unlocking Hardcore for completing a 30-year dynasty, though through the process you can also get the Perfect At Home and Move Over Duke trophies, as well as the Diaper Dandy trophy.
With that done, simply mop-up any of the offline trophies you're still missing.
