  1. If you love college football, you'll find hundreds of hours of quality content.
  2. NCAA Football 10 is the complete college football experience, it has the depth, the style, and the substance that fans have been looking for. For the first time in years I am happy to report that the upgrades in NCAA Football 10 game were enough to make for one of the best NCAA Football titles in years.

    NCAA Football 10 is no doubt the best college football game I have ever played. This year's outing still doesn't take the series to the next level like some were hoping it would (and it appears that Madden is doing), but it perfects the formula as much as possible.
  4. NCAA Football 10 isn’t really going to bring much that’s significantly new to any part of the game over its predecessor, but it does feature a well-polished game for those that are fine with that that makes it worth a purchase.
  5. NCAA Football 10 is a great football game that offers a new level of accessibility for newcomers, but keeps the core mechanics that veterans love.
  6. 75
    With solid, yet incremental, improvements on the field since last year, college football fans will certainly appreciate the more balanced game NCAA 10 puts on the field.
  7. Despite the new animations, new moves, and features, this year's model plays a lot like last year's game, with very subtle, often ineffective changes. [Sept 2009, p.79]

    Just an overall awesome college experience. Season Showdown looks to be great fun. I can't believe the "experts" give it a lower score Just an overall awesome college experience. Season Showdown looks to be great fun. I can't believe the "experts" give it a lower score cause it "can't compare to madden". Rate the game on it's own merits. Oh well, if you loved '09, then you'll love '10 even more. Expand

    Always a quality game and thankfully not too many swing for the fences changes from last years game. However, the cpu defense was tweaked too Always a quality game and thankfully not too many swing for the fences changes from last years game. However, the cpu defense was tweaked too much. CPU will blitz 95% of plays, and jam WR's on 95% of plays. It is not easy to stand in the pocket and wait for your WR's to get open when an all out blitz is coming on every down. The jamming goes beyond the 5 yard limit as well and they are not able to run the proper route. I understand the attempt to make the CPU competition tougher to beat, but there needs to be a better way than making them blitz all the time. Also, the tip balls by the defensive lineman is a bit too much as well. On the rare occurrences you have an open look the D line will swat away your pass. Expand

    I had high hopes for this iteration of NCAA Football. However, the terrrible AI, buggy glitches, and strange commentary are inexplicably I had high hopes for this iteration of NCAA Football. However, the terrrible AI, buggy glitches, and strange commentary are inexplicably worse than last year. Players will often clip through each other, through the referees and through walls. Defensive backs will warp to the ball with inhuman speed. The same facts and team introductions are used as in past years. The presentation has been slightly improved and there is a seemingly nice option to define your play strategy as "aggressive," "normal," or "conservative." DO NOT use the aggressive option. There are no benefits, and it is basically volunteering for even more turnovers and penalties than normal. Without competition from other game-makers this franchise disappointingly continues to spiral downard, and I will not be foolish enough to give them another chance. This buggy turnover-and-penalty-fest is a complete fumble! Expand

    Can EA figure out how a person runs? On the next-gen consoles it seems like the players run really weird. Before it seemed like they ranCan EA figure out how a person runs? On the next-gen consoles it seems like the players run really weird. Before it seemed like they ran duckfooted and their body moved a lot side-to-side, now they overstide and seem really slow. No running back is going to run with the same style as a miler with long strides. There're six foot sprinters with quick feet. Make them run like a sprinter not Bernard Lagat. Expand

    Worst game ever. Do the EA guys play this game when they are done with it? Do they know they created Superman defenders who can magically findWorst game ever. Do the EA guys play this game when they are done with it? Do they know they created Superman defenders who can magically find themselves in front of passes they were not physically in position for? Do they know the AI for offensive lineman is equal to the IQ of a half eaten pickle? Do they notice the horrible pass interference the CPU does on every play, yet USER defenders are brushed aside like little kids. It makes me wonder what those clowns at EA are doing! Expand
