Summary: Things that need to be fixed (Heisman mode) when playing the AI: 1. When I get hit in the backfield while throwing it, the ball pops in the air always gets intercepted. When I hit their QB it falls safely to the ground or my defense drops it. 2. The opposing I make a good read against he AI and I try to intercept the ball but its always dropped. The AI makes a good read on my poor throw and it's easily intercepted. 3.
Summary: First off let me start by saying this is a fun game to play...to an extent. The AI is better and gives the game more of a challenge. However, if you are in dynasty mode and playing another team that is ranked prepare to play the whole game and don't expect to put the game away early. A 24 point lead with 1 minute left in the half will become a 10 point lead at half and that lead will become a 4 point deficit by the end of the 3rd Qt.
Summary: First off, let me state that this is the first time I bought or play NCAA Football on any platform. So I'm coming at this from a totally uninitiated standpoint. The game has excellent graphics which you would expect, and the surround sound is excellent as well. So far so good. The gameplay is easy enough to pick up in a hurry and enjoy yourself, but offers depth enough for anyone capable of remembering a gazillion button press/stick maneuver combos to really control...
Summary: It's really sad how far this title has fallen. As stated in other reviews, the recruiting is too involved and gets boring quickly during dynasty mode. You spend more time recruiting than actually playing the game. Then, once you get to the game things only get worse. There have been no significant upgrades to the gameplay. Mostly the same moves, animation and so on. Setting the game to "aggressive" on offense or defense almost always results in penalties..
Summary: I purchased each game in the series for many years. Not much has really changed in the last few years, so I didn't expect too much from this one either. The gameplay is imporved from last year dramatically. The CPU is more intelligent and seems to react to what you are doing better (such as coverage, play calling, audibles, etc).
Very dissapointed - solicits you for additional purchases

Summary: I must preface this review by stating that I have been a fan of the NCAA Football series since it was "Bill Walsh Football". I have become accustomed to each year only having a few updates and modest improvements and those have been enough to satisfy my needs as a college football enthusiast. THIS LATEST INSTALLMENT LEAVES MUCH TO BE DESIRED.
