A Franchise Worth It4 Posted by: from: on This is probably the 6th or 7th of this series that I own. It stands up well against the previous versions. Currently I am playing the dynasty mode.

A good entry into the series4 Posted by: from: on If you've played any other game in the NCAA Football series, then you know what this game is all about. This edition of the franchise uses the same tried-and-true formula, which is both a good and a bad thing. For one thing, you know that you're going to get fun, deep gameplay that really delivers on the greatness of college football. However, you also know exactly what you're going to get, with very little changes made. The gameplay is pretty good, as some mechanics have been improved. You can finally block kicks and extra points now! However, the game looks the same as the past three games have (but granted this isn't really their fault; I mean, is there anything left to get out of the PS2?). Also, once you get good enough, the game becomes laughably easy. I know this sounds like I don't really like this game, but it is a quality football game that's easy to recommend. It's not the best of the series (I still think that '04 holds that title), but if you're a football fan, you'll love this game, pure and simple.

Awesome game!5 Posted by: from: NE on A great game! I think it feels like you are actually in college! I am a Nebraska Corn Husker fan. I love how you can create your own character and be what ever position you want to be. What a game! Wow! I can't wait for NCAA 09! (I think it is coming out July 15th 2008!)

Good game, room for improvment.4 Posted by: from: on This game has many pros, its lots of fun, and it's pretty realistic, however there are some major flaws holding it back. Lemme first mention the holding calls. There are so many holding calls. In a clutch situation this could work to your advantage, but overall it's just incredibly irritating... Up next, the invisible magnets that attract the players together. When you control an offensive lineman, and you beat the man covering you, and you have a straight line to sack the opposing quarterback, it almost seems as if there is a magnet between players that draws them together. 9 times out of 10 the guy will go out of his way to get past another player. Next, related to the previous 2 problems, when youre an offensive lineman, and you are trying to get past another, it seems as if they are glued together. Of course there is no holding call and the quarterback gets his pass off. Those are the only real problems with the game, and if it seems like alot, trust me, it isnt when you compare it to the pros of the game. My favorite thing about this game is the Campus Legend mode. You create a little character, send him to summer camp, add little points to his ratings (to make him better, obviously). After that, a bunch of different schools offer you scholarships, you pick your major, study, practice, and have games. It's tons of fun. But the best part is, after your Junior year you are elligible for the Pro draft, if you're good enough and get drafted your player gets exported to your memory card, and if you have Madden 08 you can put your college guy into the NFL. Another great thing about this game is the online playing, that's always fun. Overall the game is great, if youre looking at it, I'd go ahead and get it.

Meh...1 Posted by: from: on The graphics in this game are good but that doesn't make up for how boring it is, sure it says there are lots of features but those get way stupid after a while, I wouldn'r reccomend this to anyone.
