Summary: I have been a fan of the series and I have fudged around with different versions. In my opinion, 2010 was a bit strange and 2011, the players were just too small at the line of scrimage. The 2009 version has the best graphics and the smoothest gameplay. Mind you, I am playing the game offline. The Dynasty mode is good and has depth. I haven't made it to the other modes yet, but I'm sure they'll just add to a very good game. Worth the buy (especially at the 2012 price).
NCAA Football 09-xbox 360-newer version not much better

Summary: Loved this game. Played it nightly until getting the newer version 10. To tell you the truth--at present pricing and having experience with both--I would buy 09 before 10 for the money they are presently asking for both. Very easy to get started playing and with time the finer points of the game and controller make it even more fun.
Summary: the ncaa football 09 on amazon is very very cheap. i went to gamestop and a used one was ten dollars expensiver. also ncaa football 09 game is great alone. i love the fact that you can download rosters on xbox live so you wont have QB #15.
