Think your gridiron game is college worthy? Prove it by tackling EA Sports' latest v-game, NCAA Football '09.
Whether you like the PS3, game hard on the Xbox 360 or prefer a hands-on approach with the Wii, there's an NCAA Football '09 version right for you. Dropping July 15, the new game is available for five different systems, all of which feature a specific athlete: Boston College's Matt Ryan [PS3], Arkansas' Darren McFadden [Xbox 360], Cal's DeSean Jackson [PS2], WVU's Owen Schmitt [PSP], and MSU's Sparty mascot [Wii].
Different system platforms aren't the only new feature of NCAA Football's new edition. The game also includes wide-open game play and online enhancements.
All-New Break Away Engine: Take complete control of the game with the latest animation system. Hit your opponents with stiff arms and spins to get them off your back and your team in the end zone. Systems: PS3, PS2, Xbox
Authentic College Football Game play: If you want something more real than this, you'll have to dress for Tressel. The '09 version blows college gaming wide open with cutback lanes, arm tackles, over-pursuing defenders and downfield pump fakes. New play call bluffs and formation-specific audibles allow you to send the other team running the wrong way at the line of scrimmage. Systems: PS3, Xbox
New Online Dynasty Mode: If your fantasy is to create a college football powerhouse, your dream has come true. Invite up to 11 players across the country to be a part of your online dynasty while you manage, recruit, schedule and play for up to 60 seasons. Systems: PS3, Xbox
Prepare for the Big Game: Peek into an opponent's playbook the week before the game, and fine tune up to 10 offensive plays to learn what may or may not work in the Saturday Showdown.
