We have just posted our NCAA Football 07 review. Find out what Clay Shaver had to say about it.
""If a man can write a better book, preach a better sermon, or make a better mousetrap, than his neighbor, though he build his house in the woods, the world will make a beaten path to his door." Ė Ralph Waldo Emerson (attributed)

Iíve always been fascinated by this quote, catchphrase, theory, whatever you choose to call it. Most of you have probably heard it in the simpler more condensed version that simply says, "Build a better mousetrap and the world will beat a path to your door." Itís a concept that has captured the attention of American industry for well over a century, yet, at its core, there are a thousand holes in the theory.

Now we could get into the debate that people have been having for years about whether or not people are willing to ďbeatĒ said path. We could argue about why people would be interested if they donít mind mice running around. Or, perhaps at a simplistic level, what if people donít have a mouse problem at all?"

Sure sliders may help but right out of the box the game I found was not exciting but actually "over hyped". These "slow motion" plays are overdone. There's more highlights in one quarter than some actual teams have all year. I'm sorry but I wouldn't recommend the $50 bucks on this. Presentation hasn't changed and there's no excuse. This game years ago, if it was a PC version would be classified as a add-on and should sell for no more than 29.99. Shame on you EA and anyone else who is blinded by thinking this game is worthy of being called a "new" game.
Its not a new game and anyone expecting it to be new will be disappointed. Its an enhanced game that has a few issues but I'm happy with it. I agree that the slow motion plays are overdone so I turned them off during the first game I played. Just turn the impact camera off and problem solved. The presentation is still good even if largely the same. There are a lot of improvements but its still the same engine. Maybe your expectations were too high.

A fumble slider would definately be a great addition. I totally agree.
