NCAA vs. Madden

Postby terpfan » Tue Jul 06, 2004 12:12 pm

I've been thinking about getting NCAA 2005 when it comes out next week to get my fix before Madden comes out a month later. So my question is to people that have both, are the games different enough for it to be worth it to get both? I'm sure i would enjoy playing with the Terps, but I'm not sure if it would be worth it to shell out another $50 for a very similiar game.

I'm getting both. I like NCAA because it has a different feel than Madden. I don't know what it is. I guess it's just the College atmosphere in the game. I buy both and will continue to. Just like I buy March Madness and NBA Live.

That's a thread about which is better, this is one about whether or not they're different enough to warrant a purchase of both.

I'm with Flockers on this one: I always get both, NCAA just has a different "feel" to it. I just love the atmosphere and love playing as my Gators much more than any NFL team. There's just something about seeing a stadium you've spent so much time in. The crowds are louder and stuff too, it's great when it's a close game with one of your rivals that you legitimately hate and the crowd is roaring, and that was before the 2005 version, this year that aspect should be even better as they've put alot of time into home-field advantage.

Yep, Im gettin both. They are much different. Winning means a different thing of course, more teams, all the stuff you know. But like everyone said, there is something different about the game. The feel i so much different. The crowds are much better IMO too. I personally like dynasty in Madden and the gameplay, but in NCAA I think the rivalry and struggles for a bowl game are exciting. I suggest getting both

The only problem I have w/ imported draft classes is that the players are rated the same. The need to be dropped from 12-18 overall for it to appeal to me.

Or they need some sort of a transfer scale to not have rookies rated 99 and stuff, because it's a little unfair IMO.

The ratings aren't the same...they drop a bit. For example, Eli Manning came into Madden as like a 75 in a draft class, after being like a 95 in NCAA. The difference is different for all players, Kellen Winslow, for example, was still pretty highly rated.

Whoops. I have never tried to import, but my friend told me that it does. Sorry, I guess I should get the facts staright. Sorry for all the fuss and confusion, I'm such an idiot. :-t
