NCAA Football 09 comparison video

Posted May 20th, 2008 at 3:43 pm

EA Sports has posted up a new video for NCAA Football 09 that spotlights some of the advancements the game has made this year compared to last. You’ll see examples of what I could only describe after playing as the natural look and feel in the movement of players. That includes the movement during pre-snap and while catching kickoffs, running down the sidelines, convoy blocking with celebrations, bobbled catches, and post play continuation. It’s a pretty extensive look at areas that haven’t been really been displayed in the gameplay videos that are out.

I actually didn’t see the convoy blocking in the build we played last month. I pointed out an issue which looked awkward where one blocker would keep ahead of the ball carrier even if there was no one out there to block, rather than turn around and take on someone who was trailing. That may have been the first signs of the convoy but hopefully they’ve addressed that to where they won’t just run out ahead when they could be assisting the ball carrier properly.

You can watch the video here and be sure to leave your thoughts in the comments.
