After a few more game, I am completely frustrated with passing in NCAA 08. Things are getting better, but at this point it appears that all passes are on the same plane. There is no concept of airing one out, lobbing a pass, or putting touch on the ball. Maybe I am missing something, but I do not have time or the inclination to mess around with sliders.
Past versions of NCAA football suffered from being able to lob the ball over defenders and they hapless (and helplessly) watched receivers pull in the ball. NCAA Football 08 goes to the opposite extreme. Time after time I have a defender beat, but they manage to easily step in front of the ball and knock it down. I guess I am going to have to start searching various message boards to see if this is a problem or if it is just me showing my age and inability to grasp the complexities of modern video game football.
Frustrated in Columbus.
