Excerpt: There are few things in life that compare to enjoying a Saturday afternoon watching your favorite college football team take on a bitter rival. And being there in person with 80,000 of your closest friends makes it even more special. Ohio State versus Michigan. USC versus Notre Dame. In my case, Clemson versus South Carolina. Growing up in South Carolina meant Saturdays were for college football.
Summary: NCAA Football 11 is another positive entry in EA Sports’ storied franchise. Though I doubt this will be the best in the series for more than a year, it’s still worth the upgrade from last season for the core gamers, while the casual front will probably be happy holding on to NCAA Football 10 for an extra year.
Conclusion: However, the blatant in-game advertising (more than it used to be, even with Old Spice and Pontiac) combined with these achievements that are difficult to earn without purchasing the extra DLC puts a bad taste in my mouth. Still, I'll rate the game based on the gameplay. Are the new additions worth it? Yes. Does the fact that you may need to purchase certain aspects to give you a fuller experience detract from the game? I think so.

Conclusion: Like the new features in this game, Erin is nothing more than eye candy. And just in case you forgot any other details of last year’s game, NCAA Football 11 is certain to refresh your memory.

Excerpt: The heart of the franchise has always been the dynasty mode, and this year’s title is no exception. It is still addicting, deep, and rewarding. Recruiting has been made more accessible while also adding layers of depth for the more hardcore. You have the ability to phone a high school player and choose exactly what you want to talk about.
Excerpt: Everyone loves college football. Well, any red-blooded American, anyway. And everyone has their schools with which they align themselves while knowing that this year, of all years, is their year.
