Rated 2 out of 10 by YankeesMan1 Do not buy!:(
EA Sports did really bad on this game. Of course everybody says the graphics are bad and it is. The stadiums are a joke, they are like option stadiums from create-a-stadium in Madden games. Like when I was playing Notre Dame their stadium was like Eagles stadium and so as Pittsburgh, USC, and I think Army's. The controls are okay but still alittle dull. The All Play is really getting out of control. They SHOULD make separate discs so you have and option to pick. There is no refs, coaches, or players on the sideline which is really stupid of them. They focused way too much on mascot mode cause they thought it would be more fun for children then college football fans. What's next leapfrog installed in it. This game is a total waste of money so do not buy people and plus Xbox 360 and PS3 have perfect tens which for Wii it has a 3! The thing that really bothers me is that there is no online or ESPN in it Again a game that you should not buy and do not buy Madden 09 because I bet I'll be the same thing.
Rated 1 out of 10 by Wii Sucks Worst football game I have ever seen!!
As the title mentions, this is the worst football game I have ever seen. I would put Bill Walsh's college football against it from SEGA. The stadium is no were close to resemblance of the real stadiums. There is no pregame. Like many others, I was waiting for this game to come out and went and dropped $50 on it which was stupid. How can somebody make a game like this for the "revolutionized" video-gaming experience? How can you put this video game together and think its good. I look at the ratings for the same game on PS3 and XBOX 360 and they are both perfect 10's. I must say that I have had this experience with almost every sports game I have bought on the Wii. I searched and searched for a Wii and the only thing I have found that I enjoy is Mario Kart and the Wii Fit is alright. I'm very dissappointed and as soon as I can sell my Wii to someone I will.

I personally love nintendo wii controls. The controls are great in this game as well, but pretty much everything else in this game is terrible. First of all there is no online play and that's probably my favorite thing about video games. Second of all the graphics are terrible and none of the stadiums look right. I used to have a Playstation two, and I loved to play NCAA Football 08 on it. Everything on NCAA Football 08 for the Playstation two was better except the controls. I'm not a big fan of mascot games, although sometimes I do like to goof around and play a quarter or two of a mascot game. The only thing I really like about mascot games is that some of the mascots look funny or do crazy things that you normally couldn't do in play now or dynasty mode. The only reason I usually play a mascot game is to keep my attention off of the terrible graphics or the bad looking stadiums. So now I come to my conclusion by saying unless you love mascot games and hate online play don't buy this game. Oh yeah I almost forgot remember to turn all play off before you start a game because pretty much all you do is decide who to pass to.
Rated 1 out of 10 by UCLA Get it for another system PS2
I love NCAA the band the crowd the players the fans. I love the wii sports games because they are a lot different then PS2 Xbox PS3. When I first got it I opened it did not dot like the cover but I knew the game was going to be good. Then I played the game, the graphics looked worse than madden the players looked to big compared to the field I was a little mad about that. Then I when I was selecting my play I couldn't see the plays that well they where white blue and yellow. The camera angles are bad, whenever you tackle some it is always a big hit it tells you who is wide open when you are the QB. The only Good thing about the game was the controls and the sound. IT is a kiddy game. So now I am going to trade my game in for NCAA 09 for PS2. I hope madden is not like this if it is I'm not going to get NBA live 09 for wii. DO NOT GET THE GAME!
Rated 9 out of 10 by Michigan101 Collegefootballfanatic
This game is the best college game I ever played. I am playing the Dynasty mode and I am undefeated. Their is no problem with this game except that it is a little childish which i think they should change. I would recommend this game to any one looking for a challange. The graphics are good except they could make the stadiums look a little more realistic. The controls for the game are a little hard at first but you can get use to them easliy. The sound is good. I think the celebration thing is stupid. Thats what makes it childish. The game is better then i thought it was going to be. The only bad thing is that it takes two nunchucks to play. Or as many nunchucks as controllers. It chews up the charge of the controller to so if i were you i would get a charge station. Other than that it is a really good game. Get it!
Rated 1 out of 10 by Ajk822 Easily the Worst Game I've ever bought for Wii
Well, when I saw this was coming out, I immediately ordered it and was very excited. Unfortunately I was disappointed as soon as I saw the back of the box. No online play, ok, not a killer so long as the rest of the game is good. No superstar mode? What? Ok another big blow, but so long as Dynasty Mode is good I'll be fine. I start up dynasty, and I can't even change the name of the coach. Wow, now at that point I'm just absolutely ticked off and just hope the gameplay is good to maybe salvage something. I start my first game up, and what do i see? A game that looks as if it was made for five year olds. No detail in the graphics, and everything looks very old. It's as if you went back in time ten years, even with the old coinflip. The new camera angle and playcalling screen are also very annoying, and both need to be changed. EA sports clearly wanted this game to be built for younger players, but they went way to far and left nothing for people who enjoy games for more than a few days. As the title states, this is by far the worst game I have ever bought for my Wii. If it had be 20 it would maybe have been worth the money, but definetly not more than that.
Rated 6 out of 10 by Frago Controls are Cool and that's about it.
I got a Wii so that my wife would be able to enjoy video games with me. I love most games for the Wii, but I am disappointed in NCAA Football '09. 1st: Everything I read said that the Wii version had "Online Dynasty" mode, which was never really defined. However, I can't find anything to even get online with this version. 2nd: The graphics are weak. I didn't expect the 360 or PS3 versions, but a little better than this was expected. On a positive note, I do enjoy the game play. Part of the Wii experience is the interactive motions and this game embraces that well. I really enjoy the hand motion movement and the celebration portion. My 7 month old son really gets a kick out of watching dad act like a fool. I am contemplating trading this in for Madden so that I can at least have some online interactive play.
Rated 1 out of 10 by Gatorb8 Biggest Dissappointment Ever
I have been out of gaming for about 10 years, but just bought a Wii for the family, so I decided to buy this game. I have Madden 08, which is pretty good. Not perfect, but definitely worthy to play. This game is HORRIBLE. I am embarrassed that I bought it. The font on screen looks like a scribble, the graphics are bad, all you are doing is shaking the remote, and there is no realism at all. The worst part about this game is that I can't take it back. Total waste of $*****. This is part of the new "All Play" series of games for EA Sports. If this is how all of them are gonna be, don't even think about buying Madden 2009, NBA 2009 or any other EA Sports game. Maybe next year we can play with Dora the Explorer and her buddy Boots in the mascot game. That is what EA Sports has done with this series.
Rated 1 out of 10 by Scared to buy Madden I am now scared to see what Madden looks like!!!
This game is terrible. College football for my Sega had better graphics. I thought the Wii was a next generation console and this game shows nothing to prove that. The graphics are cartoonish. NO online mode at all. You can not even save in the middle of a game. I can see were this is heading and it may not be good. I thought this year it would be sweet to perform the option play but I am going to trade it in tomorrow. There is no need for such a poor effort. I have played the Xbox 360 version and there are so many features and options that it makes the Wii version look like some one just through it together over night. Well I hope EA sports is happy because the game is going back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And please EA file this game next to superman in the worst games ever vault!!!

DO NOT BUY THIS GAME unless you are under the age of 10! For crying out load Nintendo?! Not every game has to be so "wiiiiiiii fun"! Stupid graphics, annoying sound, terrible stadium (not even replicas), and just plan stupid! This is a college football game, and I expect it to be real and exciting. If I want to see my miiii's or ref miiii's, then I can play Wii Sports. Absolutely worst college football game I have ever bought. And what is up with the 1995 style graphics when you get a touchdown, first down, etc?! And the stupid guy always reminding you "watch the clock", "throw the ball", etc... AND YOU CANT TURN THIS OFF???? VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY DISAPPOINTED!!! Go buy the GameCube and play the 2003 version, it's ten times better than this!
