Summary: I've been playing ea football games for 15 years and this is by far the worst one i've every played. late hits on qb were sporadic as far as calling 15 yard penalties, balls caught out of bounds were ruled catches, fumbles caused by the ground were considered fumbles...could go on and on. this game is not consistent. way too many int's and fumbles. too bad; ea used to be good.
Summary: As a loyal fan of EA Games and previous versions of NCAA Football, I was very disappointed in this game. I was blown away by all the features that they left out from NCAA '07. EA has always done a good job in the past of paying close attention to the small details, but they missed the mark on this game. I think in their haste to get this game out, they have upset a lot of people who paid good money for a game that is in my opinion, inferior to the '07 PS2 version.
Summary: God where do i start. I was so geeked about ncaa 08. I love the ncaa football series and its annual july release is something to look forward to. Well, that was until this summer. I even went and bought a PS3 in giddy anticipation for madden and ncaa. I wish i hadnt wasted my 60 bucks on this paperweight. First thing, no create-a-school. Why would EA drop this feature? These developers are more worried about motion capture i guess.
Summary: After my fourth fumble of the half despite protecting the ball I pulled this piece of junk out of my ps3 and took as hammer to it. I have never seen even the most fumble prone backs fumble that many times in a whole game. I went back to the ps2 game. My receiver would beat his man deep by 5 yards, I would very lightly tap the button to throw a bomb with some air under it, but no, the stupid game throws a bullet right into the beaten DB's hands every other time.
Summary: Much of what I liked or disliked about this release has already been well covered in earlier reviews. I continue to be baffled as to why EA gives the PS3 version the inferior treatment with 720p and 30fps graphics. The last version I bought was NCAA 06 for the Xbox, and I went back to it about a week after playing this PS3 version. The player model quality is stunning save for the observation that every lineman is hideously obese.
Summary: Football programmed by engineers and marketing execs. Ths games has zero heart and has absolutely nothing to do with football. Stay away! The passing game is like Chinese algebra and even with a slider setting at 0, I had 6 INTS in a AA game. Granted, I'm not great but my QB is rated 91. I finished 15/28 with 3 TDs and 6INTS. And long passes? It's a total coin flip.
Summary: The simple fact that they have removed options such as "Create a Team", as well as taking away the ability to play the game in demo mode, has me regretting buying this at all. Other reviewers are correct in saying that EA are churning out the same product over and over, but they are also removing options from a game designed for a system with the ability to handle so many more options than before.
Summary: The quality of EA games has gone down hill. Why is it that only EA can make college football games? I am a huge fan of college football and I did like to play the football games! But after EA sad performance in `07 I will no longer buy their football game, and unfortunately they are the only one out there. What ever happened to 989 studies? I think it is time for competition!
Summary: PS3 version, 720p. 360 version..?? 1080p. Why, EA do you hate Playstation? 30 frames per second on the PS3 version. 60 frames per second on the 360 version...AGAIN..EA..Why??? Such a dissapointment. I've waited a year for this game, giving EA sufficient time to put out a gem on the next gen system for Sony and they completely laid an egg. Gameplay is almost exactly like a Playstation 2 game. Graphics, while bright and clear are almost no better than a very good PS2 game.
