Catch me if you can!

I can’t stop laughing at this video from EA’s NCAA 09 (h/t EDSBS). I was briefly considering a purchase of this game following Bill Abner’s initial reports, but those became less enthusiastic. Then Bill Harris pretty much took the wind out of the sails. This video pretty much capsized the boat.

This is just ridiculous. Even if the CPU sliders were tweaked, this kind of behavior should never happen in a football game. Even Pee Wee football games aren’t this bad.

So now NCAA 09 is on my Gamefly Q, slowly bubbling to the top. I’m not particularly anxious to play it with so many other options at the moment. Which is a shame, because I’m a huge college football fan.

Video is embedded after the jump. (Thank you, EA, for giving us the ability to embed.)


  1. Bill Harris is the best video gamer blogger in the planet.

    He has never been wrong. Ever. Well, maybe.

    No, never.

  2. He admitted fault on his predictions about the Nintendo Revolution aka: “Wii”

    Which is actually another reason I like him.

  3. Yes, one of the best admissions of being wrong on the net.

    I read everything he writes. (Actually, I stay away from the music game stuff. It doesn’t interest me.)

  4. I can’t say anything because it’s an EA game, but I think Harris has been a little unfair on this one.

  5. Oh, and for what it is worth, that video is only reproducible in game I’m told if you set the defense’s speed at the absolute minimum.
