Summary: Once upon a time, the king of the virtual gridiron was NCAA, not Madden. Somewhere along the way, the two franchises swapped spots, with Madden taking the lead on graphics and gameplay. Whatever the cause of the flip-flop, NCAA Football has had an uphill climb, particularly in the wake of Madden 09's quality.
Pros: Risk/reward game plan settings add a new dimension to the game, Season Showdown is very unique, New animations are slick
Cons: Offensive line has no brains, New additions are mostly cosmetic, Core gameplay is almost identical to NCAA 09
