I picked this up yesterday and had a chance to play for a few minutes. First, a disclaimer: I don't play a lot of sports games. Since I love college sports, I decided to pick this up.
I started a Dynasty as UNC. I had to enter the name of the coach to get started, so yours truly became coach. I didn't mess around much with the preseason stuff, as I wanted to hop right into the first game, vs. Rutgers. UNC is not rated well in the game (with good reason) and Rutgers was expected to win.
Once games load, there are virtually no load times at all as the game progresses. It's smoove like butta. For a handheld game, the graphics are great. The widescreen format of the PSP really helps football games. Ignoring any attempt to learn the controls before I started, I just went with what I suspected would work and it did. The right trigger is sprint, the X is stiff-arm, the circle is spin, the square is dive, and I don't know what the triangle is.
The in-game commentary is good and not too frequent or annoying. I didn't see any mascots, but the UNC fight song was in there. I wish these college games could have the players' names, but I understand why they can't.
The controls are responsive, the framerate is good, and I have to say, I had a blast playing the game. I haven't looked into multiplayer yet, but I think it supports online matches. That would be a lot of fun, in my opinion.
Anyhow, uh, you'd probably be better off having somebody who has played 1000s of these games give impressions. From my point of view, it's a lot of fun and I expect that I will put many hours into it.
