NCAA Football 08 gang tackling video

In my impressions I mentioned that the gang tackling was “decent but seems inconsistent”. In this video I display what I meant by that with examples from the demo.

Overall the gang tackling is certainly a positive addition to the game. It definitely changes some of the outcomes when you compare it to previous years where a ball carrier would fall forward for 5 more yards or just outright break a tackle before another defender could attempt one. However as you’ll see in the video there are instances where gang tackling should have kicked in but didn’t and the result was yardage that shouldn’t have been gained given the circumstances.
