I had been waiting for NCAA Football '09 for weeks. I had rented NCAA Football '08, and decided to rent '09. Because I couldn't wait for this game to come out, I bought a used copy of NCAA Football '07.
When I first rented '07, I played it for the longest times. All the time, continuous. So I ended up playing an entire season in three days on Campus Legend on '07.
Then, Jul. 15 comes and I go and rent the game. I was VERY excited to play the game. It's not often I get a chance to play a game the day it comes out.
So, let's see, compared to '07, the graphics are almost no different, they are a little better, but the Dynasty and Campus Legend modes are pretty much no different from '07.
The Mascot Challenge is fun. It was weird seeing mascots a gajillion feet tall, and getting past them, but fun nonetheless. Also, before, if your celebrations went to long, you got a penalty. This happens less in '09.
In reality, you should rent the game first, and then make a decision. Because I got '07 two days before it came out, I might get it on PSP, but for people who have '07 or '08 for PS2, you might as well stick with that and save up for a PS3, or XBOX 360, depending on your taste.
How to make this game better? Well, I'd say make the same improvements they did on PS3 and XBOX 360 instead of making us shell out the extra money for a PS3 and the game. Other than that, there's not much you can do except, like I said before, save up for the next-gen consoles.
Oh and for the 2008 FBS season, GO BUCKS! O! S! U!
