    NCAA Football 06 gets absolutely everything right, even the trophy girlfriend. [Aug 2005, p.80]
  2. 95
    This year's installment features overachieving impact players who are highlighted on the field during games, your very own dorm room (where you can check your stats, store your trophies, etc…), and revamped training games that are addictive as beer nuts.
  3. 92
    06 has so many different game options to choose from. Race for the Heisman, Dynasty, Recruiting, and revamped online play. It'll stay in your console for a very long time.

    The game successfuly builds on accomplishments of the series' earlier installments without becoming stale and outdated (thanks mostly to the awesome new play modes.) [Sept 2005, p.84]
  5. The improved game balance and new features make NCAA Football 06 arguably the best in the series, as well as a game that's a must-have for college football fanatics.
  6. It’s silly to think that a team like USC, with so many returning stars, would have the same number of impact players as Cal. Instead of picking a lucky number and binding every team to it, the designers should have bound the number of impact players to some transitional stat, like returning upper-classmen.

    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
    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.

I wasn't to excited either after my 20th time playing it.It gets boring sometimes. EA needed something to spice up the series. so they made heisman ad superstar mode. If your gonna buy Madden buy this one first! Expand
