  • Summary: College football has never before felt more wide open than in NCAA Football 09. Gamers can experience the excitement of making big plays on the field, as they have the ability to directly control and influence the game through the all-new break away animation engine. With huge cut-back lanes, new tackling animations and wider blocking holes, NCAA Football 09 offers a host of offensive opportunities. NCAA Football 09 also brings the atmosphere, pageantry and tradition of college football to life. Through the redesigned stadiums, which reflect even more detail of each school’s individual playing field, to the dynamic sidelines filled with school colors, cheerleaders and mascots, players feel the excitement of college gameday. Players can gain Home Field Advantage as the intensity of the home crowd rises and rattles the composure of opposing teams. All 120 Football Bowl Subdivision schools are represented in the game and players can even customize the in-game atmosphere with their own personal music collection. Off the field, NCAA Football 09 features its most robust Dynasty Mode yet, inviting fans to create and manage a perennial powerhouse program from landing blue-chip recruits to winning championships on the field. For the first time ever, Dynasty goes online with up to 12 competitors to recruit head-to-head, customize schedules and play for up to 60 seasons. [Electronic Arts] Expand

    NCAA Football ’09 is nothing less than a football masterpiece which ranks alongside the Tecmo games or anything 2K Sports is allowed to create these days.

    While the focus towards new or casual players is an admirable one, the lack of innovation or indeed improvement on previous issues that have plagued the title for years is something that is dismaying for players that own the older system and haven't upgraded to the newest and latest machines.

    Great game. sure, there were the occasional lag problems, but other than that nothing went wrong in this 2008 installment of the NCAA football series. Also, ROLL TIDE! Expand

    The game is good but flaws from 08 still linger in the game. Campus Legend is not improved at all. The graphics still lag if too much is going on. And almost normal is 4 or 5 holding penalties a game easy. But the dynasty modes and movements of players are better. But thats about the only good thing. In short get the PS3 version, its probably better than this one. Expand
