Summary: NCAA Football 08 is a great game for every level of fan. I am a pretty hard-core fan myself, and I am very pleased with this game. The controls are very easy to learn. Almost anyone could pick up the game and start playing within minutes. The detail and sharpness of the game is very pleasing. It looks about as real as a video game can. The variety and inclusion of EVERY team is very important to me, and I was satisfied with the many schools available to play as.
Summary: I was first hooked on the NCAA franchise last year while waiting for Madden to be released. I especially enjoyed the Dyansty mode. I actually thought NCAA 07 was a better game than Madden 07, even though I am not into college football. This year I was definitely up for playing 08. After reading a review in EGM, I took the advice of the writers and decided to pick up the XBOX 360 version.
Summary: Most of the problems that I have heard are about the lack of pre-game or post-game presentation or bulky players or how slow they move. I own the game and the other features more than make up for these small and trivial oversights. Legend mode is a fantastic addition to the 360 and almost makes the game worth $60 on its own.
