    When EA Sports decides to fix what's broken, specifically the dropped passes and deep passing game, it'll have another A-list football game on its hands. [Oct 2005, p.89]

    The masterpiece of college football games, and one of the greatest overall sports games in history.
    The game speed is much faster than Madden today. It created more fun, more high stakes, quicker reaction time, and created an authentic feel to how football is played. It's in bursts of light!
    The mechanics were solid. The pageantry can not be rivaled. The soundtrack was the best in sports history. The level of love and detail they put in this game, from the helmet stickers, to the rivalry trophies, to the recruiting, and great competitive gameplay. With the pump up the crowd feature you would fear going into someone else's stadium. It was a joy ride to play.
