Summary: My dear little neighbor was excited to play this game. When it finally came, he was overjoyed! Unfortunately things didn't go as expected. This game did not work under any circumstances. Returning it would cost double then what I payed for the game.
Summary: As a player of both NCAA and Madden over the years, this game is a tragedy. The graphics, game playing modes, and new features are great...no complaints. As for the gameplay, EA should be ashamed to put their brand on this game. Ive been playin season after season trying to get through at least one without being hosed by the computer. So many times ive had opposing teams catch passes THROUGH my defenders hands and helmets and then run for touchdowns.
$50? Not worth it...IT'S THE SAME GAME AS '05 AND '06

Summary: I was reading that 8000-word review by Dave Jeanclerc, and I strongly disagree with some of his points. (P.S. My review has nothing to do with the XBox 360 version, which, apparently, is awesome.) I HAVE PLAYING THE EA FOOTBALL GAMES SINCE THE MID-90'S, and I'm sick of paying $50 for the same game every year.
Summary: One look inside the box at the cheap, thin (9 page), all black and white game manual should let the buyer understand that they've been had! Be fore warned ... this is the same game EA Sports has cranked out the past 3 years ... once again "THIS IS THE SAME GAME EA SPORTS HAS CRANKED OUT THE PAST 3 YEARS!!!" No major improvements have been made in the shape of animation or graphics! To steal a line from Charlie Brown ... "UGGHHHHH!!!
Summary: Once again, excited fans will race out to buy the new NCAA game only to realize once again they've been had. So much buzz over essentially the same game from last year and the year before. They did change a few things. First of all, easier passing. That is the only positive. The momentum swings are totally unrealistic. When you get momentum, you score on every play, you intercept every pass and the other side fumbles every play, etc.
