I played half a game UM v. MSU - I wanted to try the new (on ps2) super sim feature - turns out this was a mistake as my team blew an 11 point fourth quarter lead and the sparties scored 15 unanswered in the 4th. (The CPU must have thought LLoyd was still coaching).
I played on heisman and wow - it seems like they finally got a cpu thats not impossible to beat and is not a cakewalk - the cpu was just right. However, they are awesome at running the ball on offense - ringer was consistently getting 6 yards or more a carry. Don't bother rushing with the D-line they cannot get off blocks, hope that a well timed cb and lb blitz can get to the qb because the d line ain't gonna do it.
The graphics were more polished and the game played a lot faster than last year.
I played Carlos Brown at QB - I'd reccomend doing this as he has the same qb rating as threet and you can actually have a running threat under center. He throws the ball well enough.
Some of the frosh in the game need to be tweaked (their speed ratings are not indicative at all) - especially T-rob (he also needs to be flipped to a wr).
Lopata for whatever reason is beyond awful - a 58.
i keep hearing that naming the rosters screws it up in dynasty mode.
is that only for ps3 online or would it affect ps2 dynasty.
cuz me and 6 other guys are going to be playing a dynasty and we're kinda anal retentive about the names
the madden mania forums over @ operation sports seem to be a pretty good resource for people with questions. link to ncaa forums below. most people are discussing the issues with xbox360/ps3 and roster editing. don't see anyone commenting on ps2.
