There are, of course, some quirks that we could do without. Players have a tendency to celebrate their awesomeness even after minimal gains, and the constantly jumping-in-unison crowd appears to be attending Lollapalooza instead of a football game. Injured players are left lying helplessly on the field with no trainers coming to their aid, and the field barely looks worse for wear through the course of a game - even if it’s played during a downpour.
Middling annoyances aside, NCAA 08 is easily the best football game yet for the Xbox 360. Sporting a beautiful look and feel and more modes than you can shake a stick at, it’ll cure your football fever all season long.
