Summary: NCAA Football 2005 is slightly better than the previous versions. Its new features has the Stadium Pulse where the visiting team has to drown out the screaming crowds, the Match-Up Stick helps you put your team's ability meters with the opposing team's , and new additions to the Division I-AA teams. I mostly play the DI-AA teams almost every time, my favorites are Southern Ill., Sacramento State, and Columbia.
Summary: I actually rate this 4 and a half stars. I was going to rent this game before buying it, but I decided just to buy it. I'm glad I did! This game is definetly better than 2004! The graphics are a little bit better, the gameplay is awesome, the new features are cool, and finally, the crowd doesn't cheer constantly. I love it! Pros: - better graphics - dynasty mode is more in-depth - the crowd sounds more realistic - homefield advantage, baby!
Summary: I love college football and I love the EA Sports NCAA Football series. First of all I have to say a HUGE thank you to EA for the addition of all I-AA teams. I know many people could care less about this fact, but I (and many other people) graduated from a I-AA school. In my case I am an alumni from Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas. Sam Houston and all of the other teams from the Southland Conference have been added.
Summary: I really wish they would fix the AI. Varsity is too easy and sometimes All-American is too hard if you play with a middle of the road team like I do (Bowling Green). Why can't the computer run the ball? Why do my receivers who are some of the best in the game magically drop the ball on All-American and not on Varsity. OK I had my rant. I do really like this game and the new features.
Summary: I got this game about a week ago, and have played it a lot since then. I also own every NCAA football game since 2002. Obviously you can tell that im a fan of them. I'll start with the things that i like about the game. First of all, the new running system gives the game a more realistic feel. Your player no longer looks like a robot running, but instead it looks like a real person. I also like the addition of the realistic looking fans in the crowd.
