NCAA Football 2005
5 Star Review  GameZone - Jul 23, 2004

“If it’s in the game, it’s in the game.” What started out as a simple, yet effective, but no where near true marketing jingle many, many moons ago, has proven strangely prophetic and more true with each subsequent release of this little bundle of football joy. Oh NCAA Football, how I love thee, let me count the ways. Well, I won’t go that far, because I’d probably be writing until the release of next year’s game, cutting seriously into my game time, but rest assured there is a whole lot to love, both new and old, in this game.

4.5 Star Review  IGN.com - Jul 13, 2004

NCAA Football 2005 is a bit of a conundrum. The series has always been great -- in fact, it's been my favorite football game the past three years -- but it's never managed to be superior in graphics., sound, or gameplay compared to Sega's 2K series or EA's own Madden. It's never better on technical merits, but always seems more fun. That tradition looks to continue this year as NCAA Football 2005, despite some nice feature additions, remains Madden's little brother. Though it will provide endless hours of fun, the series is beginning to show its age.

4 Star Review   By member dtsai24 - Aug 3, 2005   

Strengths: Crowd Factor

Weakness: Gameplay is worse than last year

This is a solid game but it is not as good as the 2004 version or the 2006 one. The passing game is pretty bad. The addition of the toughest crowds is nice but not an absolute necessity.

An Addictive Football Experience
5 Star Review   By member monsoonman - Jul 31, 2005   

Strengths: + Authentic College Experience + Stadium Atmosphere + Create A Sign + Create A School/Team/Players + Deep Dynasty Mode + Easy to Pick up and Play

Weakness: - Graphics - No Player Names

This is easily one of the better football games I've played. It is easy to pick up and play and get wrapped up over the college drama. Most colleges are represented in this game, and each college comes with their custom music and mascots. It's really the college atmosphere that really makes this game great. The new stadium atmosphere makes the game more competitive, difficult, and more authentic. Dynasty Mode is also quite nice adding features like discplining players and managing the team. Overall this a great college football game and I highly recommend it.

5 Star Review   By member CrashSpyro123 - Apr 9, 2005   

Strengths: Great graphics, fun dynasty, great controls, much more control in Dynasty.

Weakness: Not all that much different from last year's game.

The #1 college football returns again and improves greatly over last year's version. The player models have been improved slightly, and manage to look even better. There's also the new Home-Field Advantage feature which allows you to pump up the crowd before plays to create rumbling screens and controllers in hopes of screwing up your opponents into making bad plays. Home-Field Advantage rankings appear in the Dynasty mode so you can see which fields you should be dreading the trip to. The right analog stick is used as a Match-up stick to let you view how your players stack up to their opponents in their abilities and composure. The Dynasty mode has been revamped with the ability to discipline players for violations to keep from becoming a target of the NCAA's investigations and losing your job. In the offseason you get points to distribute amongst your team to improve your recruiting abilities, their training, and discipline. With all of these new features, one can't help but feel that this game is not all that different from last year's game. Nonetheless, NCAA Football 2005 is the game for college fans to get with it's deep Dynasty mode and great gameplay.
