Summary: The Graphics are cool, the Campus mode is great but the game is missing the most importing thing in a football game and that is hiding your plays. This game is not playable when it comes to versus mode, because you can see what plays your opponent picks and they can see yours, this is the dumbest thing to have been put into a football game.
Summary: I just brought NCAA Football 2008 for my PS3 which I recently purchased. I was so excited until I popped the game in. First off, there is only camera view you can play on. I've always played the "side view" because it looks like your watching it on TV. Second, the characters look a little pudgy and too "comical" if you ask me. They look like they came off from some anime movie. However, the tackling was awesome and gameplay ain't too shabby.
Summary: Horrible attempt on improving the Franchise. I have been liking this game series less and less as it progresses toward a simulator instead of a game. The recruiting on this game is ridiculous. You can spend 30 minutes between each game and an hour at the end a season. 6 hours of recruiting in one season is too much and if you leave it up to the computer your draft classes can suck. Why isn't this game in 1080i or 1080p?
Summary: There are a lot of great things about this game but I am going to just focus on the things that are wrong. First of all, every linebacker is Ray Lewis and can pick off a pass that comes within fingertip reach of them. That however, is just a mere annoyance. The more glaring turnover issue is that someone failed to tell EA Sports that the ground cant cause a fumble.
Summary: The first time I played this game I fell asleep it was so boring (not joking). Unlike many other people I have seen, I thought NCAA '06 was one of the best games for EA Sports in a long time (first time NCAA was better than Madden). A few things need improvement but I thought the flow of the game and interface was great. It was fun to play and realistic at the same time. EA Sports totally revamped the game, but for the worse.
Summary: This game is very predictable, game play is average at best. How can playstation 2 games be better than playstation 3, makes no sense to me. When you play someone you can see the plays they call, because the play highlights when you choose it.the average gamer can pick this up! the only good thing is graphics are better.EA sports games on playstation 3 are thrash, dont get me started on that playstation 3 Madden 07 garbage! try again.
Summary: Comparing this to 2K8 just in terms of gameplay and graphics I have to say this is a dissapointment. I liked last years PS2 version better than this weak offering. This game is not worth the $60. Too many INTs returned for TDs, too many returns period, can I return this game EA? Madden is not out as I review this, so we can only hope. 2K8 Looks and plays better than this, but only has the legends and make believe teams.
Summary: Alright, I have to start by saying that I have bought EA games for a long time since 2002 to be exact. Having said that, I bought a PS3 hoping that the games would be a step up from the their respective PS2 versions. The first thing I noticed about this game was how the menu system was revamped. It is much slower, and it takes much longer to get to the actual action than the older versions.
Summary: Pros: pre snap options on defense are pretty cool. Gameplay graphics are pretty fun. Cons: Can't make a new team, can't customize playbook, can't do formation subs, can't stop someone from going in motion, menus are slow and painful, setting depth chart is painful because the sorting by default is quite poor and never remembers what you do, kicking can be a real pain with the R3 options, play calling is overly complex and not intuitive (defaulting you to special teams...
Summary: I am changing my initial review. I wrote it shortly after first purchasing the game, and I realize now that 4 out of 5 stars is way too high for this year's version of NCAA football, given some serious flaws in the game. Yes, the graphics are good. Yes, the return of the hurdle feature is a welcome addition. But... 1) campus legend mode is a decent idea, but needs SERIOUS improvement.
