Are you Heisman material? Can you score on every drive that you have the ball? Well the only to figure this out is to Get in the game... This game is awsome! Yes it is just another football game but gameplay graphics, at the line audibles, A.I on the defense when you up the CPU to all-american or heisman makes this football game one of the only contenders with Madden to date... If you ask me the NCAA 09 is better than the new Madden 09, but hey thats just what i think..
Dynasty Modes= awsome both online and offline.... Offline try to make one of your boys heisman and break every school record possible for a single season. Online do the same, but try to win 75% of your confrence games vs. other gamers online. I must warn you tho sometimes you get a lazy guy who wont schedule games or wont get online at the correct time and this can be a bit frustarating, but for the most part people are responsible about this.
All the mini-games are fun to play against CPU or one of your buddies, but more so your buddies just because of the trash talkin rights you earn when you win. There is tug-of-war, a game of 1 play offense where I go from the 50 for the first play and try to get into the endzone, if i dont, say i get to the 40 then your offense takes the ball from the 40 and trys to get it 60 yards into my endzone. This goes on until someone scores. Then you got classic field goal HORSE to help you with your field goal game. Bowling- Start from then red zone 10 yrd. line and a TD is a strike. Say you get it to the 3, then you got a 7 and on your 2nd down would be from the 3 and if you get it in then you just picked up your spare.
Online matches... Now sometimes if your oppenant has a bad connection then it could screw up your gameplay, but this does not happen too often. There are a number of people who want to quit once you start beating them, this is ok because once that happens you then finish out vs. CPU and a win still shows on your EA world stat sheet. The ranked matches is the only way to get your stats up as a unranked match wont show your oppenants if you won, or lost. Online ranked match is the funnest part of the game and it seems like there are a lot of good gamers on there, but there is plenty of room for you to practice and get better.
I highly recommend this game to anyone who enjoys a great sports game, or anyone that enjoys football. Both fun and challenging this is a great E.A sports game to add to the collection..
