Like most sports gamers, summer brings bliss to me when the new edition of NCAA is released. This year is no different except this game is the best there has ever been for a college football game. New features and slick graphics are always welcome, but it's the little things that made this game the best do far. Graphically the game has gone through an overhaul and it shows. Stadiums have been improved, and pretty much every D-1 school has theirs created in all it's HD glory. But what about the gameplay? The folks at EA didn't take any shortcuts when it came to the game play with the exception of no two player co-op, and no alternate uniforms. Hopefully the uniform issue can be fixed with ones that can be downloaded.

Lead blocking control has been added, along with "trick" plays to team play books. Flea flicker, hook and lateral, end around, statue of liberty. All there, granted they take some luck to pull these off successfully but the reward is worth the risk. These might not be huge changes, but they make the game more enjoyable and adds a little realism. Player editing has returned with most things being able to be changed. Helmet and face mask, wrist bands and tape, plus many others I didn't mention. Even your brand and style of cleats can be changed.

A new feature called campus legend was also added this year. Basically you create a player or you can play as a current college player and control him throughout his high school and college career, all with the goal of becoming a campus legend and getting drafted to the NFL. How you perform in high school gets you scholarship offers from schools, which in turn can help or hurt your players progress throughout the game. Some schools will offer immediate playing time, while others will offer you a spot on the bench as a 2nd stringer.

All and all, NCAA 08 is the best looking and playing football game there is out now. This game is a must buy for football fans.

This game is everything u can hope it to be. They have gang tackling, good graphics, more teams have there home field, and smooth animations. Campus legend mode is my favorite and much better than before, with deeper game play. You can start off as a high school player at the championships. Or already be a college player. You can even create the high school. The weather channel also has an effect on this game, and it makes you feel like your actually there. And Dynasty mode has a all new meaning to it. Although I did not play it online (because I have to renew my subscription) This IS the best NCAA game they have ever made and I recommend that every single one of you buy it NOW! Because you will enjoy it and you will never regret getting it:)

Just a basic sports game. It includes most of the game modes ever featured in a football game and a few more. Its fun to earn tropheys and create memorable moments using the new feature. But in the end each game you play is just like the last.
