There's no disputing that EA owns the lion's share of the sports videogame market, especially with their recent acquisition of exclusive licenses for both pro and college football. Many (understandably) feared that this lack of competition would lead to lackluster games, i.e. each year's release being reduced to not much more than a full-price roster update. The team that developed NCAA 06 apparent set out to soothe gamers' fears and ended up rewarding us all with a top-notch college football game full of both subtle improvements and big-time innovations.

GAME MODES
When you put in the game you're immediately rewarded with a number of gameplay modes, some familiar (dynasty, single game) and some new (Race for the Heisman). The Race for the Heisman mode allows you to create a player and then guide him through tryouts for a scholarship, choosing a school, and then playing a career aimed at racking up the massive stats required to take home the hardware. Along the way, the main menu is your dorm room where you can review your accomplishments in the school newspaper, head off to the practice field (small mini-game drills), and check how your season stats compare versus the compeition. It's a little bit self-involved since you're emphasizing your individual campaign over that of the team, and make no mistake, you will have to put up unreal numbers to beat even the candidates with lesser stats. At the end, the presentation of the Heisman award ceremony is a little bit uninspired given that it's your main aim in this mode. Once you've finished your college days with or without the Heisman, you can port your created player over to Madden 06 to continue your career in the pros.

The real gem here is the dynasty mode where you control a school's program year-round.

I got started a bit late in college football gaming, but I have seen several iterations of this product, and NCAA 2006 is definitely a large improvement over previous versions.

I was disappointed in the small difference in gameplay between 2004 and 2005, and although the bells and whistles (e.g., home field advantage, and some dynasty mode improvements) that were added increased my enjoyment of the game somewhat, the only reason to pay the extra $49.95 was for the new rosters.

2006, however, contains some substantial improvements in gameplay. They fixed or improved upon previous flaws in gameplay including in pass coverage, getting off blocks, manouvering while running and fakes/play action. These are discussed in more detail in the next paragraphs.

In previous versions, you could have ten or more passes batted down in a game with five minute quarters, as defensive backs flew all over the field and leaped around with perfectly timed swats to knock balls off course. Additionally, after swatting at the ball, if a defensive back was near the receiver while the receiver was trying to catch the ball, he was instantaneously tackling the receiver without even having to adjust his position. Now, the game seems to have been improved, so that throwing the ball to the open receiver is easier, especially if you are trying to throw over the coverage, but still throw relatively quickly (before, to throw over the linebackers, you had to loft the ball so slowly that a safety would always be there waiting). Receivers still have trouble catching darts, and the ball will hit them in the head if they aren't looking for it. Additionally, if you throw into coverage, it is very difficult to complete a pass (to your own teammate), moreso than in previous versions.

Frankly, I was disappointed with the gameplay of NCAA '05. The balance in the passing game felt completely wrong, making it unneccessarily difficult to actually complete a pass and near impossible to even throw the ball while on the run. Plus, the new features added more of an aesthetic charm to the environment rather than truly improving the gameplay. Thankfully, '06 brought the series back where it belongs. The passing game finally feels right, not too heavily favoring the defense like last year's or too heavily favoring the offense like the years before that. Passing is a challenge, but not impossible. But the best feature is the new running controls. The trick running moves are now controlled by the analog stick, resulting in a very natural, intuitive motion for jukes and stutter steps. Couple this with the reappearance of last year's features, and we now have what is a true update to the series. It is obvious that Tiburon has been heavily inspired by the 2K football series from last year, from the running controls to the actual announcers appearing for pre-game and post-game shows, but imitation IS the greatest form of flattery (especially when you've monopolistically knocked your competition out of the market). Regardless, NCAA '06 is a top notch sports game that really shows how much fun Saturdays in the fall can be.

NCAA Football has always been a game that I usually buy for two primary reasons -- 1) to keep myself occupied until Madden comes out, and 2) to obtain realistic draft files which I can import in my Madden dynasties. Each annual version of NCAA has its ups and downs. I'd say this year's version is an improvement over last year's version, but not by much. The most important improvement is gameplay. In particular, passing is much easier this year, but at the same time, defensive back AI is smarter. So while your slants, outs and other quick short passes aren't going to bounce off players as often as last year, at the same time, you can't get away with "bombs away offense" as much as last year. Another new feature I enjoy is the expanded recruiting during the season because I've always found recruiting to be the most enjoyable aspect of dynasty mode. The new feature of impact players which helps you spot who the playmakers are and take advantage of them when they are hot is okay for quick strategy, but really not much that I care for. My biggest disappointment is the new "Race for the Heisman" mode, especially since EA Sports spent so much time and money advertising this new feature that allows you to create a player and dictate his college career. Could they put any less effort into it? One drill with ten plays determines ALL of your custom player's ratings?! You also automatically start your player no matter how skilled the other players are at the same position. There is no training camp competition, no split starting time, nada, nothing! And furthermore, you are forced to spend all these seasons trying to win the Heisman and when you finally do win it, the only reward is a crummy ten second video. Woohoo. It really is nothing more than dynasty mode with a few extra features.Read more ›
