Very Good

NCAA for All to Play

I have seen quite a few user reviews on this game and I feel too many people are looking at this game from the experienced player view. This game is fun and that is what the Wii is all about. I agree the graphics are not as good as they could be and not all of the stadiums are realistic, but I do not feel that those issues take away from the fact that the game is fun and it allows for every type of player (from beginner to experienced) to be competitive from the first time you play the game. The new ALL-PLAY feature allows anyone to jump right into a NCAA season and actually have fun and be able to control the different players on the team. The ALL-PLAY feature makes performing an action very easy, and at times maybe too easy, but once you get the hang of it you can take almost total control of a player at any time. It allows you to learn the game at your pace without the frustration of losing over and over again just to gain experience. I think this is a great addition to a football game because some people do not have the time it takes to get really good at learning all of the controls one needs to know to be competitive in a football game. You can have fun without hours of learning. If you are already an advanced player, then you can take complete control the first time you play the game. The game does not allow for on-line play and that is an area that I would like to see in the future. The mascot games are nice for younger players and it does give you a fun alternative for hosting party night with a group of friends. I think EA was trying to turn the Wii version of NCAA Football into a version that anyone could play and I think they succeeded. This version will allow for parents to play with their kids and grandparents to play with their grandchildren. It is a version of NCAA Football that can played during your family night time.

Horrible

WORST SPORTS GAME EVER

This is really bad! The graphics look like they are atleast a decade old and are far below the graphics of Maddden 2008. This game is made for 5year olds even though it is a COLLEGE football game.
To any employee of EA sports, thank you for wasting my time and my money and for making me lose all my respect for your organization.

Sorry all my fellow Wii users but one of the world's largest game producers just produced arguably the best football game ever for xbox 360 and ps3 and turned the exact same game into the WORST game I have ever played. I urge EVERYONE TO COMPLAIN TO EA and bring parity in their game production. I am very, very upset and disappointed.

i thought this years college football game was terrible i was hoping it would have campus legend no it did not. did not live up to expectations the game play was just really boring. and the thing with the mascots i mean really who cares if you can be a mascot it is just a another wii failure i was one to buy it on the frist day so what i have to say to you is save your money it is barely worth renting
