NCAA 08 v Madden 08 for gameplay

#1 Posted by DaveF (231 posts) -

I want to buy either NCAA or Madden 08. I know they both have some different features, but I'm mainly interested in how good the game is when you're actually playing some football. From the gameplay videos, both games look very, very similar - is this the case?

If there are any major differences, do they make the game better or worse. I know Madden has the weapons thing, but is this good or bad.

I'd probably rather get Madden 08, but if NCAA has better gameplay, that's probably the deal breaker.Madden has higher gamerankings scores, but most user comments on all websites rank NCAA better, so I was wondering why this is. Generally it seems people feel Madden series is a bit stagnant and not going anywhere and that's why they disliked it. This is no issue for me as I haven't bought a Madden (or NCAA) game before, although I have played and enjoyed them before.

Thanks for any feedback.
