    While the 360 version of NCAA Football 08 is finally a BCS bowl contender (after two limp seasons), the PS2 incarnation continues its steady march as the USC of last gen -- it's consistently dominant.
  2. If you're new to the series or if you haven't played in a few years, go ahead and pick it up to give it a play-through — it's well worth it.
  3. Beats the pants off the PS3 version. [Nov 2007, p.85]

    By comparison to last year's title, NCAA Football 08 is a mild step backwards, with only a few visual adjustments, changes to modes and elements that only add minor elements to an already solid football title.
  5. The gameplay could have been enhanced a bit more, but the same great football game you have come to enjoy over the years is still the best any fan can hope for.
  6. The PlayStation 2 and Xbox version of NCAA Football 08 didn't get many new features this year, but it's still a great game if you don't own NCAA 07.

    Same game as 07 just with a fresh roster. Even the commentary is the same. Sad they didn't take the franchise further.

    The great thing was to be able to control all the players in legend Mod. Now it is like in NFL 07 you control only one guy. This is why I will not buy it. Expand

    This game is a step backwards. EA needs to learn the saying, "if it aint broke don't fix it." They have tweaked things that didn't need to be tweaked and haven't given the option to turn off the changes. The only reason to buy this game is if you want to play online. Expand

    Lousy game. Same as 07 but more difficult to predict and master. I would not recommend-just buy a used 07 or 06 and you'll feel more fulfilled.
