IGN review of NCAA Football 09 All-Play

Bozon writes for IGN:
"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."

The story is too old to be commented.

I'm really starting to feel like EA Sports games on Wii are nothing more than PS2 ports with strange controls... this review doesn't do much to change my mind. I did enjoy Madden 07 on Wii but after that it didn't feel like they were trying to do anything new.

I just really hope they don't screw up the new Madden so I can get it on PS3.

I was NOT a fan of 08 with its bad framerates, clunky animations, and excessive fumbling.

I was saying that I'm not a fan of 08 on the PS3/360, the new engine is horrible. I hope they fix it in 09.
