Summary: In their constant efforts to update the franchise, EA Sports has taken a massive step back with NCAA 2005. Sure, Stadium Pulse and Matchups are neat in a gimmicky kind of way, but in the real substantive areas, it is severely lacking.
Summary: * My ratings reflect how I compare this game to the 2004 game. If this was the only game I ever played, I might rate it higher. My disappointment comes from the fact that EA Sports ruined this game when compared to the 2004 game.
Summary: The last version of NCAA football that I owned was 2003 which was great. My friend called me and said how great the game was so I rented it. 2005 added a few items to the game since '03 then but lost a lot in the process.
Summary: Disappointed with the new changes. I am a big fan of the EA College Football series and expected 2005 to be an improved version of the 2004 game. Not the case. While EA has added cool new features (described in other reviews on this site), they made exiting parts of the game worse.
