    The Heisman difficulty level seems really balanced for the first time in years. The running game is great, with grind-it-out yardage available inside and game-breaking moves to be had outside.
  2. Buy it if you have even the slightest interest in football.

    Not surprisingly, NCAA Football 07 is a no-brainer buy for the college football fans and is well worth a look from even the most casual of sports gamers. [Aug 2006, p.84]
  4. The quarterback moves way better than in previous games - he can take off and run without having to pull the ball down, making rolling out an throwing the ball on the run more fluid...The best sports game to hit the PS2 so far this year. [Aug 2006, p.78]
  5. [It] may not look as good as the Xbox 360 version, but it is by far more full-featured. There are tons of modes in the game promising countless of gameplay. The atmosphere and enthusiasm that the game portrays are amazing, second only to the Xbox 360 version.
  6. The presentation of the game is damn near perfect, and that also happens to be the case with the game’s audio.
  7. With great multiplayer (I mean, it’s a sports game, so it figures), and a wealth of different gameplay options, this is a title that should keep you entertained for a good long while.

    The PS2 and Xbox versions boast a plethora of play modes.
  9. By once again capturing that electric atmosphere in NCAA 07, and combining it with an ever-evolving set of control tweaks and gameplay modes, EA Sports has created a game that no fan of football video games--be they college or pro--will want to be without.

    NCAA Football 07 manages to capture the back and forth emotional tide of the college experience quite well with this year's inclusion of the momentum mechanic.
  11. With a bevy of options, some tweaking to the kicking mechanics (almost to the point where you think you are playing golf with the kicker’s leg), and all the other accoutrements in the game modes, EA’s NCAA Football 07 is a joyful gridiron game.
  12. [The 360] title provides near-perfect football gameplay with a decent dynasty mode. But when stacked next to the Xbox and PS2, its hard to justify the extra ten dollar price tag for a less extensive overall experience.
  13. But the big-time college football moments that it does deliver are worth it--and you won't find them on that new-fangled next-gen console either. [Aug 2006, p.81]
  14. With the enhanced Campus Legend content, realistic momentum system, excellent “Get the Jump” mechanic and the tried-and-true core gameplay, this is another championship season from the official alma mater of college football games.
  15. We could still do with more Campus Legend mode and fewer ho-hum drills, but this is nonetheless an excellent sports game, with all the thrills and dynamics of real college football.
  16. Field commotion aside, the best reason to huddle up with NCAA is the new Legend mode. [Oct 2006, p.80]
  17. You have a choice of either settling for a less attractive game on an older system, or paying more for a title that's lacking in features, but has awesome graphics.
  18. The PS2/Xbox version introduces a new ground-level third-person camera on kicking plays that would be a great option for defense, too.

    This game is most likely a all time great for NCAA games. The graphics are great for a system made in 2001, besides the weird HUGE theigh padsThis game is most likely a all time great for NCAA games. The graphics are great for a system made in 2001, besides the weird HUGE theigh pads on the players that i kinda like. This game sadly turns into a the WR catches the ball and everyone chases him down the field in till he makes a touchdown. Still this game I say...go ahead worth a touchdown Full Review »

    The gameplay is extremely solid and the dynasty is deep. AA difficulty is much better and more realistic this year. My biggest criticism are The gameplay is extremely solid and the dynasty is deep. AA difficulty is much better and more realistic this year. My biggest criticism are some of the new features in the game like jump the snap, momentum, kick return cam which should have an option to turn off. The biggest flaw in the game is the kicking game which is new and absolutely stupid. Its too easy to make kicks and the CPU NEVER misses left or right on any difficulty level. Full Review »
