Who is getting this? I'm not a big fan of EA sports, but I haven't played a college football game in years and I'm definately getting this years.

They are finally throwing in online dynasty which should be sweet! Dynasty's and franchise modes are so much more fun when you are playing with other people.

So who wants to get this game and start a Chiefsplanet online dynasty? We could do Big 12 or something.

I try to rotate years between Madden and NCAA so I don't waste a bunch of money on both, and this is a Madden year. However - Mizzou sucked on last years game, and will most likely suck on 2010 as well...I might have to pick this one up.

I think I'll probably get the Madden and Head Coach pack in thingy. I liked the NCAA demo too but two football games is enough and Madden looks better this year.

I'll probably pick it up. I played the bejesus out of 2008; mostly in Campus Legend mode. I couldn't deal with the dynasty mode and all the recruiting etc. I wish they'd allow you to just play a season etc. I don't have the time i used to in order to fully enjoy the Dynasty mode.

I just wish prices of games would come down about 20%; never happen, but still.
Although I'm beginning to enjoy gamestop. picked up GTA IV for $50; and had $20 in games to trade in.

Because its more or less a pick up and play game, there's not very much strategy imo. I am sure there is some, but its more of an arcade style game, then a straight sim. I hear that EA pays off certain review sites and threatens them with not getting EA company perks. I am not saying this is correct, but its totally believable.

ya, last years got the best review in years and I thought it was the worst one yet. I couldn't stand playing that crap and they took out some features I liked. They took out being able to assign certain players to certain formations and plays, so if you wanted to play your backups a little bit you had to pause and go to the depth chart and then do that again when you want to take them out. Plus the o-line blocking was horrid (not just the Chiefs o-line). It was horrible, I tried to like it because I love football but just couldn't.

I bet they do pay off review sites, I'll do my research a lot better this year.

Not sure of the regular game mode since I played mostly campus legend, but it seemed like turnovers were a huge problem. The CPU forced way to many fumbles, even when 'protecting' the ball. O line blocking was terrible; missed blocks constantly.

Oh well; I still enjoyed the heck out of it.

I know some people prefer that style, and i understand why they do, but i get seriously competitive with football games. Especially online. People here can vouch for how much i used to play it. I used to go on 3-4 hours of sleep becuase i was playing all night. I dont play as much anymore, but i try to play 3-4 times a week.

I can't wait for NCAA 09,getting ready to pre order my copy... Heck i am still playing 08 alot... However the same cannot be said for Madden 08. I actually went out and bought it the day it came out,played it for maybe 2 weeks and haven't played it since.... I will be sure to rent Madden 09 first before buying it.

Hmm. What's 2k's version like? I've never played. I think I played All-Pro football a time or two (not sure if this is part of the 2k series); it was pretty cool, but I couldn't get into the concept of building a team with former players etc. But the game play was cool; took some getting used to though.

Does 2k come out with a new game each year? Or can they not do that because of the licensing the NFLPA has with EA?

Not this year. When 2k8 came out, they said they wanted it to be a every other year thing. So we will see, hopefully we will get some info on it at E3.

2k's version is focused on simulation play rather then a pick up and play game. They target hardcore football players first. They are also not allowed to use ANYTHING NFL becuase of the EA/NFL deal. I would expect their next game to be fully customizable though. As soon as i hear anything about it, best believe i will be posting about it. I talk to the 2k community manager quite a bit and always asking him about it. He said there hasnt been anything to talk about atm. So we will see.

I bought All Pro during X-mas for 10 bucks on bestbuy.com. I actually enjoyed it but stopped playing it for awhile and eventually lost it. My mother found it when she was moving out and it had a couple scratches on it.

It won't let me hike the ball now. I can do everything else but that...pisses me off too.

LOL, what i find funny with this is even though they used retired and fictional players its more of a true game of football then the company that actually uses the NFL and its players. I have been a hardcore football gamer since 10 yard fight i have played just about every console football game ever made, nothing comes close to the actual game of football then APF.


EA seems to be going in the right direction, but its going to be a few years. They have to completely get rid of their engine and start over. They have to completely redo their animations as well, they are very very pathetic. They are not fluid whatsoever. For me, that just ruins it.

The eminently-respected Bill Abner (http://nutweasel.blogspot.com/) has been posting some pretty promising impressions.

The INT is how I scored. It was 3-0 OSU in the 2nd when FSU calls a screen on 3rd and 10. Freeman read it and was all over the RB. Weatherford (He's still at FSU, right?) was being pressured by Wilson (2 more sacks by him by speed rushing -- getting pressure is NOT a problem in this game, regardless of what anyone else tells you. Speed rushing in fact might even be too effective.) So as the rush is coming he throws the ball to the RB anyway -- and Freeman picks it off at the 10 and walks in. TD. That was the only pick in the half and it didn't feel canned.

By canned -- you know what I mean. So many of the INTs last year were in the middle of the field, almost as if by design, like it was "time" to get an INT. This felt legit -- pressure + forced throw = bad news.

Of course we're about to leave for the fireworks so I had to kill the game...but 10-0! Two great defenses! A game where every yard counts!

Happy happy joy joy. That simply NEVER happens in NCAA.

Poor kick coverage seems to be his biggest complaint.

Wow, those APF animations are fantastic. The only thing that I like about EA is the in depth franchise mode. I am sure I will buy NCAA 09 for that reason. I wish APF would do a franchise mode and let you customize it. But yearh, those animations are unbelieveably more realistic.

You don't need any transfer thingys this year for the next gen systems anyway. You can just type in someone's gamertag or PSN ID and download them straight to your machine from the EA locker. The first set of rosters have already been completed by pastapadre for the 360.

Yep, after stuff like that, there's no way i can play the other game. It just doesnt seem fun to me. So that leaves me stuck playing a game that was released a year ago as opposed to something news. Oh well, maybe 1 days they will get it right. Doubtful, but ya never know.

For me, it is all about the Dynasty/Franchise mode. That is what it means to me when they say a true sim. Until APF can get that in their game, I won't bother. I gave up on trying to beat dipshits online years ago. Too many cheesers.

well, i guess i have a different definition of it. I actually like to play the game of football, not try to be Carl Peterson. Thats not fun. lol

Another thing about playing online, i have alot of games under my belt and i would say a good 80-85 percent of them have been good clean games. I dont know how EA does it, but 2k has a pretty damned awesome reputation system and you can check all their stats and see what kind of a player they are. I dont have problems finding good clean games. Never have.

Madden is full of cheesers. Maybe 2k has a better system.

Let me re-phrase my earlier post. It's not "all" about the offseason stuff. But I like that part just as much as playing the games. Don't get me wrong, I could care less about setting ticket prices, parking, food, and stuff like that. I just like to build a team to my vision.

That's what I like about NCAA football. I like the hunt when you go on the recruiting trail, and then putting your new guys in with real guys and eventually making it a team of your own recruits who fit your philosophy after several seasons. That part is most fun to me. I know I"m playing a video game so the graphics don't need to be the VERY best for me to enjoy it. Hell I used to play Tecmo Bowl when I was a kid, I can handle what EA puts out there.

Ahh, yeah, i can see whythen. You like all that other fluff stuff in building teams. I am a straight online player. Offline for me sucks becuase once i get good its 16-0 every time. I play strictly online, but i do go into the practice mode in 2k and test out new plays and try to find other plays that work for me. 1 thing i liked on the old Madden games. Well the 05 Madden was the training deal they had going on. That was pretty cool. No idea if next gen games have them.

If you are going 16-0, then you should change the AI settings or up the level. Or both. That is what I do. I don't want to be undefeated every year. I still play Madden (PC) and every few seasons, I up some settings to make it more realistic and more challenging me. I am very, very good at this game as I play it just about every day. But I still lose some games. Not many, but some.

As competitive as i am with football gaming the AI will not beat me unless it just flat out has a momentum cheating thing built in. With games like this, its either to easy, or to hard. The to hard part is more or less you have no chance to win because the AI cheats. You know the super jumps where its going to make some crazy interception and run it back or the player superspeeds. lol

Apparently the problem is because the guys who did rosters had versions that were early releases and dumbed down so it didn't have all the teams thus creating the corrupting of the files when trying to upload, it deletes teams because those teams weren't on the roster makes version of the game they had.

Sliders need some tinkering as usual. I started my KU dynasty on Varsity. Versus FIU they converted like every 3rd down in the first quarter until I adjusted the sliders. I ended up winning 38-15 on the strength of a fumble recovery for a TD by Brorsen and an INT return by Chris Harris on consecutive possessions in the first half. I adjusted sliders to fix that a little bit too. Seems a bit tougher to run on the CPU. Reesing is pretty accurate on slant patterns, though he threw two picks, one on a flag pattern to Meier and one that was tipped by Briscoe as he tried to catch it one a drag route. Jocque Crawford dislocated his elbow on a TD plunge in the first quarter. Out 9 weeks already.

As for all these roster bugs, I guess I'll never know. I change the KU roster by hand and that's it. Don't really care about any other players on any other teams.

One thing I noticed while editing my roster was that not one of the KU players have their correct hometown listed. I mean how hard is it? You can find almost all of the towns represented in this game, but for example they had Kerry Meier I think coming from Salina? He's from Pittsburg which is on the list. Not that it makes any difference to the rest of the game, but I changed all of those too.

I wonder how these roster downloads work anyway considering I found several discrepancies between the players listed on the game and the roster I found online at kusports.com. Discrepancies like incorrect numbers, positions, players missing altogether, or players there that don't match any on the roster. Do the downloadable rosters fix those things or just give names to numbers?

The game has some of the players wrong, usually the roster editor will fix those to be accurate. The hometowns thing is like that for every team, they likely figure it doesn't matter.

Shouldnt have to punt the ball out of bounds. They need to fix the end blocking on the gunners and not lock them up. No one ever kicks out of bounds anymore.

Just played it. I like the game play much better than Madden 08.

One peave so far after 1 game. As the game was starting on LSU's home field. The landscape looked great with the sun going down, about to set, and the ****ing thing didn't move over the course of a 3 hr game:shake:.
A very simple detail, that the only excuse I can come up for it, is that the bastards were just too damn lazy to put in, or they just don't give enough of a damn, to try, and make the best game possible. Other than that, I definitely enjoyed my first game.

The thing that makes that irritating is I can remember back to the late 90's version of the game and you'd start the game during daylight, at halftime they'd show the a dusk animation, and by the 3rd quarter you were playing under the lights.

My first game with KU was a 6:00 start. By the end of that game it should have been dark, but was as light as it was when I started.

Progressive Lighting:
This didn't just "drop in" to the new lighting system. It would cause inconsistent lighting on the players and strange shadows across the field as the sun moved. It was deemed too risky to get in this year on top of all the other lighting changes we did.

The Art Director did mention this has never been in Madden as a consolation, but that doesn't matter to me. Progressive lighting is in the plan for next year, and dynamic weather is on the radar.

Dynamic weather would be great. Started a game in a downpoor and ended it in a downpoor. Would be cool to see the rain stop and start. I think the older versions of the game used to do that too.

Seventeen-year old Jocques Crawford pleaded guilty last month to simple assault involving a 15-year-old girl

http://www.wreg.com/Global/story.asp?S=3951663

I didn't realize this guy had been charged with a rape. It was pled (pleaded?) down to simple assault. Although that is still not good. I suppose I should be embarrassed as a KU fan. Perhaps Mangino thinks this kid deserves a second chance. Still, if this guy does anything while at KU, he better be on the first bus back to Memphis.

Hey Ultra Peanut, you got any good info in this situation? What did the DA allow him to plead down?

2nd game was against Notre Dame and didn't go so well.

I was so pissed I turned off my PS3 in the middle of the game.

I was down 21 - 3 and got it to 21-18 (FG and TD w/ 2 PT Conversion) w/ 1:30 left in the first half.

They get to 3rd and 8 w/ the clock ticking at maybe 50 seconds, so I call time out. They go deep on 3rd and i take over control of the guy who was already standing in perfect position to intercept it and I totally ****ed it up and moved him, and they went all the way for the TD. I yelled out the F word and shut off my PS3.

That was probably the most pissed I've been playing a game on the PS3.

Actually one time I was lagging on COD4 Online and it pissed me off. I threw my headset at the wall and broke it (the headset, not the wall n00b!).

It can be stopped #1.

#2It can be used by either team. The game is obviously offense friendly to begin with (it's college football).

From what I've seen it seems to work because, frankly, there seems to always be someone open.

I like to play a lot of man. bringing all db's forward, and keeping a LB, and a safety in the middle of the field. Other wise it seems to be open range in the middle. For me, and for everyone else without that coverage. Of course you have to mix it up. Bring some heat. I'm really enjoying the game.

What are the sliders? people may try them.

taken from www.operationsports.com

***NJPapi's Heisman Slidiers V 1.5***



Update 07/16/08:

After receiving word from Watson and The2ndComing about what a member at OS figured out with the sliders for human working for the cpu as well. I was skeptical since it seemed like a reach. I decided to test them throughly along with a set from DAVE who provided me with his mix and i got to work on this new update.

The biggest issue is that all human sliders not only work for the human but for the cpu. The cpu sliders are worthless and can remain at default.

Unless EA patches the slider issue which i dont think they can or will. Then this is one of those years that you have to make an effort to get the cpu to play right on heisman or any other level for that matter.

What I mean is that if you have the human accuracy at let's say 35 then it affects the cpu qb as well. I cannot lower it to much since it will make the cpu throw weak passes along with your qb as well.

that qb accuracy can be set at 1 number and it will work fine for both sides.

The issue is the run game and only the run game. If you put the rb ability and run blocking at 100 then it works for both sides. The issue is that if you put the sliders at max for the run game for human then your running back gets a boost of speed and juking abilities which to me kill the game. The only way around this is to max it out when the cpu has the ball so they can run better and when you have the ball you lower it to make it realistic based on your team and back.

This was killing me all afternoon until I decided to set it at one number to work for both sides and leave it at that. The results are not huge in terms of the cpu run game but i prefer a limited run game for the offense then to have my run game be that good when I have a weak back that is not to fast.

Now on to the defense:

The defensive sliders for cpu also dont work so leave all at default. I dont want you guys to move them at all.

The human defensive sliders work for both sides. This is where it gets better in terms of your defenders not acting like morons and the cpu defense not being easy to pick apart with short passes.

Many folks want to fix the cpu qb being so damm accurate but that does not bother me as much as me being able to move the ball vs the top teams on heisman all game long.

Please try this new set by using the following matchups.

First game:

Pick Georgia and play at Kentucky

Second game:

Pick Rutgers and play home vs Oklahoma

This will give you a game with a top team vs a weaker team and vice versa for the second game

The same issue goes for the Special teams. Use only the human side of things.







Sub In and Out:

QB Out 0
Qb In 1
RB Out 84
RB In 100
WR Out 0
WR In 1
FB/TE 0
FB/TE 1
OL Out 0
OL In 1

DT Out 84
DT In 100
DE Out 84
DE In 100
LB Out 0
LB In 1
CB Out 0
CB In 1
S Out 0
S In 1

The 84 and 100 is to make frequent subs in the d-lines and rb positions

The others are to not have subs since those are usually all game starters


NJPapi's Heisman Sliders:

Injuries On or Off
Fatigue On
Quarter Lenght 8 minutes
Playclock On
HFAE On
Ice Kicker On
Quiz QB On


Penalties:

All maxed out except for roughing the passer which is set at 30.


Human and CPU Offense:

QB Accuracy: 35 (This works for both human and cpu passers)

Pass Blocking: 0 (This has helped the pass rush)

WR Catching: 0 (Not sure of this is reversed or not but I do see more drops at this number)

RB Ability: 55 (This will make your back play to his rating and makes the cpu runner average at best)

Run Blocking: 100 (This will improve the run lanes for both sides)




Human and CPU Defense:

Awareness: 100 (This will help defenders stay closer to receivers and backs)

Knockdowns: 100 (This will help the defenses swat passes)

Interceptions: 0 (Finally this slider works like it should for both sides)


Break Block: 0 (This is strickly a slider for playing against the run for the human and cpu)

Tackling: 40 (This will allow runners to break more tackles)






Human and CPU Special Teams:

FG Power: 5 (This will make those 50 plus yarder hard to make for both sides)

FG Accuracy: 45 (This will make long kicks harder to go straight for both sides)

Punt Power: 40 (This will make it easier to get down and cover punt returners)

Punt Accuracy: 60 (This will make the human and cpu punters coffin kick better)

Kickoff Power: 65 (This will make kicks go to the goal line at most times for both sides)





It is important that when the cpu is punting. You always picks punt return and not punt block...If you punt block then the cpu will bring in their protection which will lead to an open field to return it for 45 yards with ease.

If you pick punt return then it will be harder to get long returns with ease.


Please remember that CPU Sliders remain at 50 since they don't work

One last thing is that if you play press coverage then your chances of shutting down the cpu pass game improve immensly.[/QUOTE]

Damn, just when i thought this game was above all the EA BS, I play back to back games where AI selection had complete control of the outcome of the game.

I won the first, with the poor guy I was playing against crying bloody murder, about dropped passes, interceptions, missed tackles, and what have you. I thought he just sucked, as his QB threw lob passes to the middle of the field right to defenders.

The second game I lost. I dropped 4 INts, I don't know how many passes, and QBs accuracy wasn't even close. It' like one team or the other is handicapped by the CPU.
(you know like when you play the cowboys on madden. I had to play them 3 times in a row one time, and LJ got hurt in the 1s Qrter evry time.)

Anyway, i don't like to win that way, and I sure as hell don't like to lose that way.

Campus Legend Mode is pissing me off... Give me the damn ball, if I wanted to block I'd have been a fullback not a halfback!

I KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN!!!

You pretty much have to break off 15 yard run after 15 yard run or they'll run pass plays all game. And then, when you do get the ball on a HB Dive, no one blocks and the D has 8 men in the box anyway.

Question for the people who play in an Online Dynasty.


Do all the games have to be played for the week before the dynasty can move onto the next week? Say if there are 4 people in the dynasty. If one person can't play their game that week....can the rest of the dynasty move on? Do you have to sim their game? Or do you just have to wait until they play it?

I bought the game last night. So, did the developers all come from MU or what? KU f*cking SUCKS in NCAA 09. FFS, Reesing throws nothing but INTs, the OL can't block effing FIU's DL, Jake Sharp is easily arm-tackled, and the D is slower than Greg Knobinson's "32".

I'll still take 'em in our tourney, but I'm gonna get smoked.

Any reason why I ought not to?There's the roster problem (a patch has been sent to Sony and Microsoft, so that should be fixed whenever it makes its way through their checks and whatnot), the CPU sliders apparently don't work (HUM apparently affects both human and AI settings), and there are some online dynasty server issues. Those are the biggies.

Game's a lot of fun, though.

Don't get that one. Start up the game and go to the live menu, select "ea locker" and download the roster from this gamertag "EArosters com" - minus the quotes but be sure to leave the space between rosters and com.
Then you'll need to upload the roster that you just downloaded.

Just bought this game about 3 hours ago.

Played through the first time with Kansas vs. Mizzou against my buddy(who admittedly doesn't play many sports games), and was up 21 to 10 in the 3rd when I picked him off again and he quit. KS was waaayyy overmatched, if he had played sports game much more often he should have been able to keep it pretty competitive and beat me pretty easily with Mizzou's offense.

Then I played through against CPU Oklahoma with Georgia and beat them 24-10. Pretty complete game. I enjoy it. Loved running with Knowshon. I hardly ever pass in football games, none of my friends want to play Madden with me anymore because I "run the ball too much".
