    Great game play. This game just scratches the surface of what the PS3 can do and it still is something to be in awe of. The graphics, the gameplay and the options. 10 rating from me!

    This game is tons of fun! If you like college football, and are familiar with the Madden control scheme, you will love this game! Although it may be 30 fps on the PS3 vs. 60 fps on the X-Box, it does not appear graphically very different at all (maybe minute differences). Game play is fantastic and very realistic. This is a great football game, and has a much better TV-style presentation This game is tons of fun!

This is a great football game, and has a much better TV-style presentation (compared to Madden's "tin can" radio announcer that really gets on my nerves), plus the music is just college fight songs so you don't have to listen to the Madden Rap! Great game! Expand

    Very good game with a good foundation towards the future. Still missing features (like extra camera angles) that the current gen game has and a few issues with the gameplay but its a solid title. Very different in feel from the PS2 version as its more realistic and defensive oriented that newbies will have to get used to. The game grows on you and is worthy of a purchase.

The 30 fps isn't bad but its not as good as the 360 version which is super smooth. Expand

    Best graphics of any football game to date (on PS3). Graphics are not as good on XBOX 360. Game play has improved a little. The defense is a little smarted than in the past. Game play is a little more realistic. Don't like the celebrations after almost every other play.

  1. For all that it does right, perhaps it’s telling that this series has improved its presentation off of the field, while still lacking some of it on the field. It’s these kind of intangibles (and those above) that need to be addressed to unify all of NCAA’s elements – as well as some of them are done – to create the ultimate college football experience.

    Running at 30 frames per second and only 720p makes this a graphically inferior title to the 360 version of the game, which is truly unfortunate, since the game is quite good otherwise.
  3. Even though a lot of what's new is a bit rough around the edges, NCAA Football 08 is a great game with a lot to offer.
