NCAA Basketball features a unique behind-the-player view, which shows off Mode 7 effects. However, to have such a view, they sacraficed a crowd, which makes things look rather eerie. The Japanese version features laughable rippoffs of actual NBA teams (Detroit Packers rather than Pistons, however using the same logo). The European version pits different countries against each other.
