Summary: If you like them chances are you'll like this too. Pretty fun, but takes a while to get the controls & nuances down....like most other games. I wouldn't pay more then $5 for it now as they are very dated.
Summary: I bought this game August 07, so about when it came out. I thought it was a great game at first, goood graphics, dynasty was well done, and the legend mode was OK. The knocks on this game is that it is rather choppy, freezing on the menu, freezing a lot in game(drives me crazy), and ridiculous fumbles. Example, I was playing legend mode and ran it as a RB. I got tackled and "fumbled" it.
Summary: I have been a fan of EA's NCAA Football since 2001. Every year I have bought the game and have enjoyed it thoroughly. However, I did not enjoy NCAA Football 2007. To me, the game was a little too difficult. The controls didn't make sense, either. The 2008 edition has certainly corrected all those problems. I have not played the Legend Mode, b/c I personally love the Dynasty Mode, and is pretty much all I play.
Summary: If you have enjoyed any past version of NCAA Football on XBOX or 360 then you will love this version. There are not many visual upgrades but the game has more depth than last year. In season recruiting keeps you busy between weeks. I have noticed some glitches in earning Achievements; I have completed some tasks multiple times and still have not unlocked those achievement points. All in all you won't be disappointed.
Summary: Normally I just dig right into the dynasty mode expecting to lose a few games learning the particulars of the game engine, but this time I started by trying out some of the other features. First I tried the minigames of Tug of War (you get 1 play to move the ball and then the opponent gets the same, first to touchdown wins) and also Bowling (10 yards to goal, each yard is a pin with two shots at the end zone). Next I moved on to Campus Legend Mode.
Summary: NCAA 2008 isn't perfect. The crowd and sideline animations are cheesy and goofy looking. There are a lot of unexpected and unnecessary bugs. For example, after my team won the Conference USA Championship, the screen read "MAC Conference Champions." Overtime gameplay is deeply flawed. I've yet to lose in overtime because the order of play is either incorrect, the other team's turn is simply skipped, or the game suddenly ends for no good reason.
Summary: For one people calling this game a dissapointment must have thought this game was going to be the #1 seller of all time. I think for one that this is the best college football game I've played in years. In Game wise the grapics are a notch down from last years but EA did this so the game runs a lot smoother than last years edition. The close up cut scene visuals are amazing though.
