"When you shave NCAA Football 09 All-Play down to its roots, you really realize just how much this year's effort is a no-brainer to avoid from any perspective. For multi-console owners, last year's PS2 experience has more to offer than this, while this year's 360 and PS3 versions are a great investment. If you're Wii-only, Madden 07 and 08 are both great options (08 including a bit more, online, but some odd bugs), with a little more patience getting you a simply awesome experience with Madden 09. With things like multiplayer mini-games removed, no online, no create-a-payer, no create-a-team, a shaved down (last year's) Dynasty Mode, Shrine, or Campus Legend modes. This is less a full NCAA game, and more a demo of possible years to come. We want NCAA on Wii – just like we want NHL on Wii – but we don't want it until it can be done right, and this year wasn't it. Madden 09 destroys NCAA 09 on Wii, and any self-respecting football fan will avoid this year's college effort like a 4th and long situation. Send EA a message, and skip this one."
