Excerpt: If you asked any basketball oriented person in this country what is the best time of year to watch basketball, there wouldn’t be many to not say the month of March. There isn’t much else that can compare to “The Big Dance.
Excerpt: College hoops have been an enjoyable pastime of mine for years, primarily due to a decent basketball program back in my college days. I�ve been let down in the past by video adaptations of my favorite sport, but EA�s March Madness 08 looked like a decent effort at recapturing my attention.
Excerpt: It’s human nature to sugarcoat the negative in a situation no matter how strongly we feel about it. That bad movie that “had a good soundtrack.” That awful song that “had a nice beat.” Or, perhaps the most famous of them all, “she has a good personality.
Conclusion: You can't argue with the results of EA's focus on revamping 08's post play, and some people will really dig the inclusion of a large number of classic teams (with short shorts), but it's really a shame the developer didn't spend a little more time addressing the little nagging issues.
Pros: New post moves work great, Improved interface makes dynasty mode more enjoyable, Does a nice job capturing the college atmosphere.
Cons: Gameplay is sloooooow, A large number of small nagging issues really bring down the gameplay, Lack of real team schedules and inability to alter sim length are big oversights in dynasty mode.
Conclusion: I would love to say that I recommend everyone to pick up this game, but if you already own NCAA March Madness 2007 the need for an upgrade probably isn’t necessary for this game. I would recommend anyone having a craving pick it up for a rental, that is probably the perfect amount of time to enjoy...
Conclusion: The controls of Indiana Jones are nothing that is going to give you a headache trying to figure out, but it’s not going to be a game that you can just pick up and play. The controls are very nicely placed on the controller, to the game as enjoyable as possible.
