Summary: Dynasty Mode is excellent, with a good diverse schedule of both creampuffs and tough conference foes, and a lotta fun with off-season recruiting - don't assume you're always going to get the best players, even if you've just won your third straight national championship! One major gripe - it seems that if you play a certain opponent every year (I'm at the helm of Michigan, and this always happens to me against Purdue), at some point the game will freeze and you will...
Summary: Like another prior reviewer, I had to downgrade my rating for this game after reading some of the other reviews. Most (but not all) are pretty accurate, as far as pros and cons of the game go. The experience with slowdown seems to be widely varied: in my own case, I experience slowdown--no freezing--during the last thirty seconds of each half. The loading time for a game is long, but nothing serious.
Best Game Ever? - Maybe, Could It Use Some Work - Yes
17 December 2001
Summary: I have owned this game now for three months and I play it all the time. I have observed the pro's and con's of this game and I also have read other reviews for this game in which people give wrong information. 1) First people complain about how difficult this game is. If you pick a bad team and do a dynasty on heisman the game is going to be hard thats the point.
Summary: Let me just start be saying that this is a very cool game. The game play is identical to Madden with expanded playbooks. I especially like the ability to run the option while really looking and feeling like an option. I only play this game on Dynasty mode because that is what is cool about it. However, I have a few complaints here and I will list them: 1.
Summary: I love this game, as everyone else does, so I won't write about all the great features cause you can read those elsewhere. The problem with my game is the freezing in between the end of a play and the play calling screen coming back up. It takes a good 3 seconds for the creen to come up. I haven't had any problems with any other games which leads me to believe it is a software problem. I also have friends who have had the same problem.
This is the best football game ever made, hands down!

Summary: When I bought this game a few weeks ago I was expecting a pretty good game but when I turned it on and started playing I was blown away. First of all the graphics were ridiculous! The detail is amazing. Another cool feature that many people don't know is that if you go to the edit players menu in Rosters you can name all the players! For instance I went in and named all the big name players from college and surprisingly the announcers will actually call out their names!
Summary: I have been a fan of EA Sport's College football series for many years and this is, without a doubt, the best installment yet. From graphics to sound to the game engine, this is GREAT!!! The game has the usual practice, season, franchise mode, etc... I usually don't mess with any mode except Franchise, and this mode is great. You can take any team through numerous seasons in your attempt to build or maintain a dynasty.
