Summary: I've rented this game from a video store and I'm glad I did instead of plopping down $50 for it. The gameplay is slow, the recievers drops a lot of passes, and at least on Xbox, the quarterback occasionally makes throws a pass prior to me initiating the pass. Also the fair catch button doesn't work for some reason. When I go in the practice mode, the quarterback always throws the ball without my input.
Same old, same old- minus any hope of a passing offense

Summary: I have been a long time fan of the NCAA football series put out by EA, so naturally just like every other NCAA junkie I immediately went out and laid down $50 for the game. While last year I couldn't stop playing NCAA 2004, I am already tired of NCAA 2005. They added a few nice features such as home field advantage, where your controller and the screen shake when you are the visiting team to a pumped up home crowd. Other than that, I wasn't impressed by any extras.
Summary: EASPorts I guess has given up regarding graphic improvements, since this game looks like the same game not only as last year, but really the same since Playstation. (I won't say Genesis, but you get the point). All the players faces/models are the same. Take a lesson from ESPNSports, revamp the graphics engine already. This game, as does MAdden 2005, looks like its 5 years old.
