    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    The game successfuly builds on accomplishments of the series' earlier installments without becoming stale and outdated (thanks mostly to the awesome new play modes.)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 game play is more realistic than 05, opponents are smarter and I've ran a couple of punts back. Expand

I love the creation features. I can play Dynasty mode as my FCS alma mater, and love that most of the team is accurately portrayed. Presentation is awesome. My only problem with this game is the way blocking assignments are sometimes handled. Slower plays like WR Swing don't work well. Expand
