Summary: Parents need to know that this game features some controls that might be too complex for young players. Players experience some of the roughness of the sport, like hard tackles, but those who celebrate big plays too much will be penalized. The game includes ads from real-life companies. Parents need to know there is an online mode and that Common Sense Media doesn't recommend online play for anyone under 12.
Conclusion: While the Xbox 360 version doesn’t pack the same amount of features or overall depth that the Xbox version does it’s still a truly next-gen football offering that is definitely worth your time and money. The visuals alone, as long as you’re playing on a solid HD set, are worth the sixty bucks at times. The gameplay is fun and addictive and the online mode, while not as deep as a 2K Sports offering would have been, is still fun nonetheless.
Conclusion: The game is good. An easy and fun game to play, with a few extra’s thrown into the mix. Repetition diminishes some of that fun, but if you are a football fan, and love playing games like this, this is the game for you!
Excerpt: Recently I've been getting more into college football. I've always followed my favorite college team but in the past few years I've branched out and started enjoying practically all college games. They seem to have more passion and fun than the professional game. Yet I hadn't been that interested in playing video games that represented college football. Until this year.
Summary: While the game has good controls, as well as great sound and addictive gameplay, the vital 'Campus Legend' feature is suprisingly missing from the Xbox 360 version. Even without its inclusion, and lack of four player gameplay on a single Xbox, NCAA Football 07 is still a solid game.
Excerpt: Technically, this NCAA is one of the best yet. The momentum system has been revamped to be a bit more fair and less dominating. Instead of rapidly pressing a button to try and hype up the crowd, your momentum depends on your performance, just like in real life. Big plays, killer sacks, and touchdowns will tilt the odds in your favor. High momentum results better playing by your team and more mistakes by the other team.
Excerpt: Every year at about this time we end up with another slate of sports titles. NCAA Football 2007's time has come yet again, and is it the football game we've all dreamed of, or is it not worth the time of day? The answer to that question depends on what system you own. Technically, this NCAA is one of the best yet. The momentum system has been revamped to be a bit more fair and less dominating.
Excerpt: EA Sports got off to a rocky start last November when they launched a handful of sports titles alongside the Xbox 360. Since then, theyâ€™ve had a whopper in Fight Night Round 3 and, just for kicks, an impressive FIFA World Cup 2006 soccer game. Does their latest next-gen sports title, NCAA Football 2007, stand up alongside those other games and above the slightly disappointing 360 launch titles? In a few ways, yes, and in most others, no.
