I'll admit. My last review for this game said the game was good. It's not! First the upsides. If you don't like the camera angle you can still change it and Dynasty is still here, which is good. But now the downsides. NCAA has oficially ditched online infastructure (don't know why). The graphics are so bad words can't describe; wait, I'll try a few: pathetic. cartoony. stupid. unrealistic. And No matter what difficulty you're on, The opposing team ALWAYS blitzes, your O-line NEVER blocks, but it's really weird; you always end up killing the opposition. It's ridiculus. And your quarterback always gets sacked. If he doesn't it's always a beautiful throw and your reciever drops it. I know that drops happen, but not that often! It seems like they made this game do stuff so often just because It's possible!You always know what to expect. Blitz, no blocking, good throw, drop. Don't get '09. Get '07.
Rated 4 out of 10 by Kingwelsh hater of little big planet Keep playing 08 and 07
Let me just say I thought that E.A. sports had gaming down pat...wrong I was. I have played this game for ps3 and 360 and it was not too bad, I already own 08 for psp and it was okay for a psp game. So I thought this game would be a lot better. But the graphics are even crappier than 08, the only thing they changed was their face masks now stand out and are not glued to their face like before. The stadiums are not that bad really; I think that was an improvement. But it is really just the same exact thing as 07, 08, 06, 05 and 04 with a few different features and different controls, thats it. I don't know why people waste their money every year for a game that is the same as last year's only with a different title. Don't waste your money like I did, unless you don't have an NCAA game. Wait a few years until a lot changes ,then spend your money, read these reviews to help you decide.
Rated 8 out of 10 by bigmoose ok football game
When i got this game i was happy. But when i started playing it i noticed that the graphics were not as good as i thought they would be. I mean, it's the litte things like players going through other players, not showing a true deflection (as in the fact that when someone bats the ball away, it does not touch the player), and so on. And freshman mode isn't that much fun. Really all you do is move the analog stick and press X to do everything. I am not saying that this is a bad game. It is actually quite fun if you get the hang of it even though it is not all that challenging. The only other downside of getting this game is parts in the gameplay. Sometimes your offensive line never blocks and in the same play your quarterback makes a beautiful throw and your reciever drops it! But at the same time it's a fun game. You should give it a try.
Rated 4 out of 10 by D-Dogg Disapointment
I couldnt wait to get this game and ended up getting a few hours before it hit the shelves. I thought it was going to be so cool but ended up the same as 07 with updated rosters. I am really disapointed that they dont even have infrasture online mode. they only have ad hoc. Plus the dynasty mode is not all that great neither. They also made the graphics .little cartoonish. And why like the little background in the game menus have to be WV colors?It should be the colors of the team you chose as your favorite. I'm sure somebody else would but I prolly wouldnt reccommed this game to anyone.'This game was a very big disappointment but Im glad I didnt go out and buy it but I might go out and by it for Wii or Playstation 2.'The Wii is prolly much better than both.

Ok... so I had my friends drive me to get this game at midnight, I have always understood that games don't transfer the same from the consoles to psp, but NCAA 09 was bad, the dynasty is ok and instead of a practice mode they have a mascot game which is cool, but MASCOT GAMES ARE STUPID and glitchy... so I started playing the game, and I used The Ohio State university. who has a Heisman quality Running Back and this guy starts to fumble, almost every down he touches the ball, then my wide outs are getting blasted before they catch the ball. What is up with that? So having a whole new difficulty level added to game I changed the settings to easy or JV for fans of the franchise, and all of this nonsense stopped. I can't tell you how disappointed I was in this game. EA is the best in my opinion when it comes to sports games but I don't even think they try when it comes to the PSP. I think that they are looking for the quick buck. This game doesn't even have the new juking system they bragged about in it. What is that? So if you really love college ball like i do and you bleed your team's colors, then buy the game. It will give you that nice playing time when you're in a car or on a plane, but if you can, avoid it and buy it for the consoles.

This year they must have lowered the standards for NCAA football. I mean the game was horrible, the graphics were, and quote me on this, "boo boo" and the controls were "too dificult to remember". The only good thing about this year is the dynasty mode, and that's not even a perfect ten. I wouldn't recommend this game to anybody except those who have it on one of the elite consoles, like the Xbox 360 or the PS3. Let's just hope Madden 09 isn't the same. I reserved Madden 09 for my PSP the other day and I have to say if it's anything like NCAA 09, it'll be going right back to the store. After I finish my dynasty mode, I'm going to either give it away or take it back to GameStop.

this game has the best camera angles compared to the other ncaa football games like 08 07 06 05 04 03 02 01 00 and so on. at first the controls are difficult to remember but after a while you will get used to them. the interfaces are beautiful. they have all of the statistics from all of the other before years and they rate the players very well. the game is one of the most challenging games that you will find in your entire life. the graphics are the best compared to the other games. the sound and music choices are the best, the team and player variety are the greatest choices that they have ever made in their previous game years
Rated 8 out of 10 by clackers Good but not that good
This game has many ups and downs but this game has more downs than ups. One down is that the sound of this game is horrible you could berely here the announcers talk. Another down is that why do almost all the teams have the same stadium that is really dumb and why can't they have the team's own personal stadium in the game but i will recomend this game but it had a couple of disapointments.

I glad that NCAA Football 09 is gonna be on the psp. The Last Time NCAA Football was made for psp, it was NCAA football 07. That was back in 06 I'm Glad I bought it too, it's alot better than everboby made it out to be. Hopefully this one will have more modes and be just as good if not better.
Rated 4 out of 10 by daman35 Is this 09, or 06??
I traded this in a while ago. I got it when I first got my PSP thinking it would be decent, but its not. The graphics are bad, the gameplay is bad, announcers get annoying, is there anything good I can think of? No. Dynasty is Ok. Other than that, it just, well, sucks. Do not buy this game
