    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. What makes NCAA Football 07 so incredible is a single world: immersion. From the in game cheering to your campus legend's dorm room, you will be drawn into an atmosphere that's been missing from previous years' NCAAs or any other game of this variety.
  3. More than just an upgrade, NCAA Football 2007 is a complete revamp of the franchise bursting at the seams with accurate details and realistic gameplay.
  4. Online play, new features, and completely perfect gameplay once again show everybody why NCAA Football 07 is always considered one of the best sports video games year in and year out.
  5. With the current-gen, you get more bang for your buck.

    The PS2 and Xbox versions boast a plethora of play modes.
  7. No mere phoned-in afterthought like far too many original-Xbox games these days, NCAA 07 is a mature, refined sports game. [Aug 2006, p.75]
  8. I would give NCAA 2007 a perfect 10/10 based on the gameplay and the amount of fun I had with it. However, I'm knocking a point off for the lack of ESPN integration, the status quo on online play, and for not adding to the pre-game intros.
  9. 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.
  10. The presentation of the game is damn near perfect, and that also happens to be the case with the game's audio.
  11. 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.
  12. This is the most complete football game that we've ever played, and it really feels as though the NCAA Football series is truly hitting its stride.

    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.
  14. [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.
  15. 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]
  16. 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.
  17. Despite any grandiose new features, NCAA 07 is a smashing success. Yes, it's a glorified patch for last year's game – but it plays such a better game of football that the lack of new snazzy features should not stop fans from grabbing a copy.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. The PS2/Xbox version introduces a new ground-level third-person camera on kicking plays that would be a great option for defense, too.
