I went to my local Target and they had 4 copies on display. I asked the guy if they are for sale and he said he just put them out because there was no street date on them.

The gameplay is great. You can choose road to the heisman. You start off as a high school player and get to do 1 practice drill then depending on how good you do you get offered scholorships from schools or you can be a walk-on for your favorite team. When playing the game the screen trembles as the crowd gets louder. Took me a while to figure that out. I thought my ps2 was messing up. Im just starting so i haven't gone to far in the season. You have playmaker players that are highlghted in white and pulsate faster when he in the zone during the game. The control are little different then madden you juke by using the right analog stick. They have a msacot challenge but I haven't played that yet, but it says new next to it.

To play Online they want you to PAY $2.00 to join EA NATION or free but you have to choose a espn offer so they can solict you stuff by phone or mail. Basically telemarketing to sell you stuff.

What the flaming F@#K is that about? Them owning the NFL and NCAA lisences aren't enough? They want $2 more or permission to spam you?? Sorry Amars, the game sounds great... Until you explained this part. Sounds like EA bull**** to me.....

Peterson was 92 speed in the 2005 game. Also, in dynasty play, he usually wins the Heisman as a senior. EA did a good job there imo. There was no way to predict that he would be superhuman

answer for your hawaii question the uni are black silver white and green. Adrian Peterson is a stud. I used him for one 2 series and he hits the hole fast and breaks at least one tackle everytime. What even more impressive are the blockers in front of him. They are great. Just follow your block and you can break a big 15-20yd gain.

the game is awesome. a big step out from ea. alot of us espn will notice some similarirties to our beloved t2k5...like tapping A to get an advantage in a tackle animation sequence, or the B ( x box ) to swtich players. the tackle animations are sweet. makes me believe madden is going to be great as well.

Ok... I'm prepared to feel the wrath for this, but here goes...


This game blows. I got it last night, and was waiting to play the greatest football game ever. All I got was a college game that would lead someone to believe that the Florida State Seminoles were actually the '72 Dolphins in disguise. I've never seen a QB make amazing 50+ yard passes 9 times in one game while being hit.

The character models are aweful and look just as bad as last years madden game. The game's control are awesome, and I love the new scheme. It supports HD 480p which is nice, and the sound is amazing. But in the end, it didn't feel real. It felt generic.

When the player stand straight up their elbows all look broken and everyone stands the exact same way... And when people run into the endzone, for some reason they come to a dead stop. Really annoying. I want to run INTO the endzone.

The race to heisman feature is awesome. Great presentation. The "big play" dances are just so stupid it's funny. Watching my guy jump around like a jacka$$ made me want to cry.

I was just disappointed guys... IMO ofcourse.

So? Let me have it. :yell:

Wow, I disgaree with you on every point. I think the game is more or less realistic, graphics are great, and Race for the Heisman is a boring gimmick.

If you're having problems with bombs, turn down the QB accuracy sliders. Also maybe you need to call better defenses. Cover-2 Man is best against bombs. Sometimes a 4 deep prevent zone works better, but not usually

Well i have to say that I really enjoy this game but it is not realistic. I am doing the qb heisman and got a ride at texas. The defense is alot harder in this years model. I went into ohio state and just could not stop them-there wide out would catch everything. then, in game 3, I threw for 850 9tds vs rice. We put up 121!! That is the most I have ever put on a game! Love the graphics and how can you not love the td dances. It may cost you 15 yards but they rock, even when a d-line man does his td dance!!!

No i play on varsity mode. And i wasnt trying to say i was the all king of football, i was saying there are some unrealistic things about the game. also, you want to see some hight scores, check out madden nation where i saw someone said he put up 150 on some computer team. that doesnt even sound fun. the only reason i did mine was i was mad from loosing a close on to ohio state.

I used to name every rated 90 and up myself plus my whole entire team (the Texas Longhorns) up until last years NCAA. It took FOREVER to name just the 90+ rated guys on all the teams, I can't imagine how long it would take to name EVERY guy in the game! I would name 90+ rated guys so when i import to madden i knew who the gamebreakers were in college, I got so sick of seeing guys in madden named QB#12 (and most of the time with a jersey number that didn't match their name) however that last year I decided to sim the first four years of my dynasty and THEN create my guy that way all the non-named guys would be gone (aside from 5th year players) and i could start saving classes that were fully named for madden. This year is gonna be a challnge though since the thing i always do, as i'm sure most of you may do also, is create myself (or a player in general) and take him from freshman all the way to madden. Finally they actually have a game mode for people like me, but the one bad thing about it is I can't sim the four years to get all the unnamed guys out. Oh well, the game rocks anyway, can't wait for madden, i remember reading somewhere that when you import your heisman guy into madden you take him to the combine before the draft to raise (or lower) his skills before the draft!

Yeah, its called "Superstar Mode". Similar to the "Race for the Heisman" but much deeper. You go through the combine, take the Wonderlic, hire an agent, go through the draft, buy an apartment, sign endrosement deals, sign movie deals, practice, and obviously play games. Sounds awesome. And if you choose not to import a player from NCAA you can create your own guy, from the DNA up, by choosing parents and their genes.
