    Excellent controls deliver a highly responsive feel and a huge roster of cool moves, including a new defensive ball swat.
  2. NCAA 2003 comes so close to perfection that you really have to wonder if Tiburon can top itself again next year. [Sept 2002, p.114]
  3. The game has improved leaps and bounds since last years version, which is surprising since it was done wonderfully last year.

    Although there are still more titles to be released, I’m not quite sure that any of them will be able to compete with the high standard that EA has set with their latest offering, the bar has been raised.
  5. Best college football game on PS2 this season? Hey, is the Pope catholic?

    Forget about best college games, NCAA Football 2003 is the best football game out there for serious football videogamers... Challenging and satisfying.
  7. NCAA Football, usually regarded as the redheaded stepchild of the sports world, has finally come into its own this year with refined gameplay and jaw dropping graphics to match.

    obviously the other critics have a flawed copy, my freinds and I are deep into the Dynasty mode with several teams, and have never frozen up. The game is without peer. Expand

    This is the best football game ever created. My friends and I are in the military and it's the perfect game for ship. With so much spare time on our hands it's not hard to pass the time with this game. So much detail and lifelike plays, it really impressed us. I know 20 people that have it. The only bad things are that the player's names weren't released and there's no tournament mode, but other than that it's the perfect football game. Best ever! Expand

    If you want to see a frozen screen, buy this game. If you want to actually play a game, this isn't for you.
