    Re: I've got it! And, now, I disappear into the abyss

    Just bought a 360 and a copy of 08...Wow! Graphics are great...I'm used to the ps2...It's gonna be a B**** getting used to these different controls though...I'm guessing it will take A LOT of time...Played 2 games and did have a disc read problem during 1 game?? Anyone have any idea of a time frame to ween myself away from ps2 controls and master 360?

    change them to the Ps2 controls.....it took me about 6-8 games to get used to them, and I prefer them over the PS2 now.

    I for one am disappointed...

    Great graphics??? Are you serious? The stadiums look awesome, but the players have changed little since 07. Not to mention Alabama's home uni's look like the are covered in glitter and our helmets got replaced with OU's.

    Gameplay- Almost the same as 07, however, EA has added more useless things to this season, which they will abandon in 09 (see stadium noise, composure). The highlight feature thing is pretty neat though, and am surprised it hasn't been done before this season.

    Dynasty is pretty engaging, you have to constantly keep up with recruits, etc.

    Audio - Hasn't changed in years... terrible

    Same thing they keep doling out every year, with the same new "special features", with the same boring "HE CAN SCOOT"....

    EA can do better than this...

    I'm disappointed somewhat with some of the things this year like why the players look like they have poles shoved up their you know what when they run, but overall it's WAY WAY WAY better than last year's. I agree that EA could do much better however and frankly we as consumers deserve better.

    Why should you expect anything more? We have gotten the shaft for years. It will only get better once the monopoly is disintigrated.

    play a game on 07, then play one on 08 immediately after......there's a pleasant difference, at least to me, anyways. Gameplay smoothness is definitely noticeable.

    I think high step is B, but don't hold me to it.

    psxsports.com has a rough version of their rosters up for xbox 360. They think the whole thing should be done by Friday maybe. I hope they come out on ps3 soon afterwards.

    I have had the disk read problem twice, but only during the Campus Legend.

    From some of these replies, I am definitely gonna play this game before I consider buying it. Do not want to be disappointed like I was with last years version.

    I think it is a big improvement from last year. How else can they make it better?

    1. The AI is better! I'm having a hard time passing!! I may have to practice.

    2. My graphics are better, but I have a big screen.

    3. I really don't expect more from the Audio.

    4. I like the ESPN.com features.

    5. I wish you could get the live weather feed on Dynasty mode.

    6. I wish they would expand the team selections to include some such as NAU and the Big Sky conference. Just think it would be cool!
