NCAA Football 09 Hands-On Preview: IGN

IGN has posted their hands-on preview of NCAA Football 09.

Quote:
"Delivering an authentic college atmosphere that separates itself from what is seen in the yearly Madden release has always been a challenge for NCAA Football, but EA Sports is including a few new additions that will hopefully deliver a more scholastic feel. The first and foremost of these niceties is the celebration mechanic. Now when you score a touchdown you'll have the ability to interact with mascots by running over and performing a signature move or running over and riling up the crowd. You can also taunt opposing team's mascots, but then you run the risk of revving up a hostile crowd."

EDIT: Some of the clips in that interview video actually looked pretty good!

Once you're actually down on the field and under center you'll notice that the look of NCAA Football has been refinished a bit since you last saw it. Player models have been sculpted to look more like college athletes and less like hulking superstars. There are also new animations (bobble catches and interceptions, for instance) that are specific to NCAA and are being dubbed a part of the Break Away Animation Engine that's designed to help players shed tackles and get into the open field a bit easier than in the past. This is aided by the new left stick controls which are much more responsive than anything we've seen from an EA-made football.
Lets hope that their are a decent amount of bobble interceptions(but not too many picks overall), and that they will aid in eliminating the absurd amount of pick 6's

But what does that really mean this year? Well, for starters if your quarterback is rattled he won't be able to see the routes pre-snap. Instead he'll see a bunch of squiggly lines shaking all over the screen. Then there's also the requisite drop in skill that has been in year's past, but this time around it's extremely apparent as your quarterback will flat out miss open receivers.
Hopefully the QB's will miss receivers with totally uncatchable passes and not throws right to the defense.

Well, to be fair, the guy said the mascot game was a fun distraction, not that it is a mode he woudl use often. In the video interview it's the last thing mentioned and he says it's just a fun little thing that didn't take them any time.
Not that I'm interested in the mascot thing, but it might be fun to play with a kid or something.

Seriously, if that quote doesn't make plain the vast gulf between the sports gamers mindset and that of the folks over at IGN, nothing will.
