Another good next gen title. I a big fan of NCAA football on the console and the actual sport. As you can guess the grafix are up to par with this one, plus you don't have the cutting clinches of 08. On the other hand I frustrated to see the new control system, and although you can change most of the controls to your liking some are locked in so you can't change them. This makes for a bit a pain because you have to relearn the controls. It does get better once you learn the controls though. I wasn't able to find the screen where yu can put together your own play book, don't know if they took it out or not. The game play get some getting used to also. The body motions are different and they seem to run funny, to me anyway. But even with these minor gripes the game has come a long way from 08, and i'm glad that they didn't just add a few things and throw the 09 stamp on it like in the past. If your like me this game will take up alot of you time and with football season a month away, this is time well spent.
This Game Sucked on the PS3, I enjoyed NCAA 08 and Glad I'm rented 09 before making an impulsive purchase ( they almost had me with the commercials). I will Add another thought to this review I played this game on the 360 and found it rather enjoyable The Graphics were more defined and players had a bit more realism to their physiques, I could tackle players when playing run defense and last but not least players for the CPU didn't catch balls out of bounds or go through any of my players when I attempted a tackle . Unfortunately I have a PS3 not a 360
