NCAA Football 09!

The latest addition to the popular NCAA series has finally been released, but will 09 bring anything new to the franchise?

First Impressions: Whenever possible, we try to give our loyal website viewers the most video footage and most in depth unbiased reviews imaginable. Part of that development is our "initial impressions" where we offer up our first impressions of the title that we are playing.

This gives our website visitors more of clear understanding of what to first expect out of the game when they initially pop it into their consoles.

If you scroll to the bottom of the page in the Rent vs. Buy section of the review and do not see the "final impressions" assessment then it's safe to say that you are reading our initial impression of the game. Once the final impression is up, there will be no further video or review done to that particular title.

Final Impressions: The final impression is just that, our completed breakdown and overall thoughts on the game based off of our entire game playing time.

You can locate the final impressions assessment in the "Rent vs. Buy" section of the review (always located at the very end of all of our reviews). Here you will be able to read our final thoughts on the title and also see any potential grade changes that were made to the game as well (higher or lower). Should a grading change occur, it will be clearly noted with the previous grade, the new grade, and why the change occurred.

Although this approach is more time consuming and requires many more man hours, our entire goal has always been to provide the best and completely unbiased reviews possible and we feel that the inclusion of the Initial Impressions and Final Impressions sections will give you a better view of what to expect from a new game.

All that we ask in return is for you to continue to support Krakrabbit.com by visiting the site and letting others know about our cause. Together we can supply our fellow gamers with the most impartial information so they can make an informed decision on whether to buy or rent this particular title.

Finally: The biggest addition to this year's football is the ability to create and participate in an online league with up to 12 other players.

You will finally be able to take your favorite collage team online, pitting your team against other real-life opponents.

This long-awaited addition to the NCAA football series is highly enjoyable, and is completely devoid of any flaws whatsoever.

Darren Mc who: One of the oddest additions to NCAA Football 09 is the often too easy difficulty that tends to give you an absurd advantage on offense.

While 08 was at times crushingly difficult, 09 tends to be too easy; allowing you to break huge plays several times per game.

Your running backs can juke like the best of them, and you will often be able to shake off several defenders with ease.

While breaking huge plays on offense is tremendously fun, on the defensive side of things the game can become increasingly frustrating.

Your team will miss a massive amount of easy tackles, and will be shaken off like leaves in autumn way too much.

Same Old Dance: Other than the online Dynasty Mode and wacky difficulty, very little has changed in the latest year of NCAA Football.

The Campus Legend mode hasn't changed at all, and if you have experienced Campus Legend before, you will be vastly disappointed.

The single player aspects of Dynasty Mode haven't changed either, and you will guide your team of choice through the season to the Championship.

Rent vs. Buy: NCAA Football 09 is still an incredibly enjoyable game, with gorgeous graphics and flawless gameplay.

While NCAA Football 09 isn't much different from last year's edition, the game is still a blast to play through and has limitless replayablility.
