Great Graphics-Mediocre Gameplay

Keith Gander, Amazon
1 October 2008
  • Summary: I had been playing the PS2 version of this game since 2004. I was disappointed with the PS2's 09 game. So, I went out and bought a PS3 and this game. I was not overly impressed. The graphics are excellent, the stadiums and background are very good.

  • Summary: Another turnover-fest with poor collision detection produced by EA. Since the exclusivity contracts, EA has put out a series of lackluster football (NFL and NCAA) games on the current generation of consoles. This one is no different. You can polish a turd, but it's still a turd.

A little step up for a lot of cash!!

J. Hulet, Amazon

  • Summary: I have bought NCAA Football year after year hoping that at some point they will start to make big updates and each year I am pretty let down. This year was better than some, but still pretty pathetic. This is not a cheap game and you don't get a ton for your money.

Updated Rosters, Slightly better gameplay

J. Cull, Amazon
27 July 2008
  • Summary: This year I was very excited to get the new NCAA Football game. Unfortunately, as usual, EA Sports failed to live up to the hype. While the gameplay is more fluid than in seasons past, and the tackling is "somewhat" more realistic, there are still several flaws that make this game not really worth...

No improvement here...

J. Sterling, Amazon
27 July 2008
  • Summary: I'll be short and sweet. I'm a big fan of EA's NCAA football franchise but this lastest issue basically sucks. Game enjoyment I gave a 2 because they got rid of the sideline camera view and the motion capture doesn't seem as life like anymore.

Needs work

Thomas W. Robinson, Amazon
27 July 2008
  • Summary: I have two caveats to this review--first, this is the first time I've played the next gen version of NCAA so I cannot compare it to last year's PS3 version. Second, although I only gave this game 3 stars overall, I've been playing it as much as I ever have in the past.

Why on earth would I ask Lee Corso what I should call???

ShowtimeMike, Amazon
27 July 2008
  • Summary: Pretty good game, some improvements over the past several years but nothing too ground-breaking. But Why on God's green Earth would there need to be an ask Corso feature? If I'm stumped as to what play I should run, why would I ask a coach with a career record that was below .500?

GREAT! MOST OF THE TIME!

Tapanga, Amazon
26 July 2008
  • Summary: THE BIGGEST PROBLEM I HAVE HAD WITH THE GAME IS GAME FREEZES. I HAVE AN XOBX 360 AND IT SEEMS YEAR AFTER YEAR THE GAME LOCKS UP FROM TIME TO TIME. COULD BE MY 360 OR, COULD BE THE CONSOLE. ANY OTHERS HAVE SIMILAR ISSUES?

  • Summary: This game has just been getting minor improvements for years now, and 09 is no exception. Its not that good of a game anymore, its time for a serious overhaul. Plus you throw in the fact that the game is loaded with bugs this year and you have a game that can be passed on.
