GREAT! MOST OF THE TIME!

  • 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?

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

  • 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? It seems to me that he should be asking advice, not giving it. A better question would be why does ESPN continue to give that goof any air time?

Needs work

Thomas W. Robinson, Amazon

  • 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. With that out of the way, to the review... NCAA 2009 has great graphics, the players and stadiums look great, and I like the playbooks compared to last year.

No improvement here...

J. Sterling "JBS", Amazon

  • 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. Players seem to glide along as they run instead of running along the ground. I don't like the way the play calling system is set up either, they should have stuck with the old one.

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. I have been to Camp Randall Stadium in Madison, Wisconsin dozens of times. It was like sitting in the upper deck again, looking out across the city. I didn't find the gameplay to be much better than the PS2.

Updated Rosters, Slightly better gameplay

J. Cull, Amazon
25 August 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 the ticket price. For starters, everyone runs like they are highstepping... all the time. In real life they would get jacked up and seriously injured if they ran like that.

A little step up for a lot of cash!!

J. Hulet "John(Fantasy Literature)", Amazon
17 July 2008
  • 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. I like some of the changes like the recruiting assitant and the improvements to the campus sidelines. The passing game is still pretty poor and it's not just the sixaxis controller.
