I finally broke down and picked up NCAA Football 2007 for the PS2 this afternoon. I just could not stand not having a yearly NCAA update. I guess EA Sports banks on guys like me.
Impressions? I do not have much to say after one game. I am ashamed to say that I took it on the chin by two touchdowns in my rivalry game of good old fashion hate (GA Tech vs. UGA). Contributing factors were a lack of a rushing attack, 5 fumbles (4 lost), and seven sacks. The sacks killed me, contributing in 3 fumbles, but Brown also coughed up the ball a couple of times while trying to push in for a TD.
I am not sure what to think about the new kicking meter (controlled power and accuracy via right analog stick), but at least the developers attempted something different. The graphics are pretty much the same. As with each yearly release, I assume there are some new animations, and there is a new camera view for kicks. I actually like the new presentation style, which is really just more of the same, with a little more polish and small new touches such as the stadium noise indicator.
Hopefully I will actually have some time over the next few days to really dig into this one, but for now my next big decision is do I try to take North Texas to the top once again, or do I just go with UGA or Texas?
