Summary: This has got to be the biggest scam EA has ever come up with. The game is a joke. You have to be a really, really big EA fan boy to ignore the nonexistent passing game, constant clipping (not the penalty), choppy animations, freezing, excessive turnovers (with meter all the way down), useless defense, ridiculous campus legend, cheerleader less and coach less sidelines, meaningless player ratings, and it just keeps rolling downhill.
Summary: The other day I was playing this game with my brother. We started off our game at night in Boise. About halfway through the second quarter, I thought I noticed a lighting change, so we watched the instant replay. Sure enough, the night had changed instantly into day. Pat White might be able to juke some tough players, but he isn't God. When he drops back the sun doesn't change.
Summary: I bought this game for my son's xbox 360. The xbox live part never worked right. My son would always lose his connection playing with other players before half time. We have had no other problems with other xbox 360 live games; i.e., halo 3, call of duty, guitar hero, etc. I attempted to contact EA sports which is like a top government secret as to how you actually speak with the exhalted ones working at EA sports.
Summary: The 08 version of NCAA introduces some new features that will be awesome when they go back to testing the product. I love the highlight feature and the ESPN look and feel, but the controls and frame-rate are a really sluggish. My main complaint with the controls is that the animations take far too long to run their course. Just a bunch of big, slow players performing long,canned jukes. The worst aspect of the game is the turnovers..
Summary: It seems as though the ea people just loadedup the old sega genesis version of madden and gave it better graphics and college teams. The gameplay is terrible and the camera view is ridiculous. I thought that I was plaing in retro mode or something but I was wrong. What happened to the 06 gameplay? Either the creators of this game were on an acid trip up until the last week they had to create the game or they are tryng to boost the sales of Madden.
No way this game is worth 60 bucks....it's not even worth 2 stars

Summary: How can you say this is the best to date lol. The game is choppy, the players are all gigantic, they look like they are jogging instead of sprinting, and your player can turn on a dime in any direction. The graphics have gone downhill as well as the game play. Not only that, EA has taken everything good from 06 out. There is no create a team, no 1AA teams, no intros, no custom playbook, no crowd, they gutted the thing.
Summary: Yet another year goes by,now for NCAA 08,that I will not buy the game. It's like a broken record,we all hope that "this will be the year". Then again it's not good,so AGAIN we're saying "oh well,maybe NEXT year". Where is the game day atmosphere? No pre-game,half time,game end presentation to speak of. Play selection is wacked,the field surface is funky,players seem to be sliding around,and the crowd of morons jumping up and down continually is tiresome.
Summary: The quality of EA games has gone down hill. Why is it that only EA can make college football games? I am a huge fan of college football and I did like to play the football games! But after EA sad performance in `07 I will no longer buy their football game, and unfortunately they are the only one out there. What ever happened to 989 studies? I think it is time for competition!
