NCAA Football 2005 User Reviews
Real NCAA schools, stadiums, logos, and more. Realistic graphics and gameplay. Includes major 1-A, 1-AA, and historic teams. Lots of game modes. Good play-by-play. Multiplayer and online play.The bad:
Slightly tight controls. Play-by-play quickly gets repetitive.Summary:
NCAA Football 2005 represent's EA's latest effort in the excellent series, giving armchair QBs everywhere the chance to take virtual control of their alma mater and keep the rivalries going long after bowl season ends. There are plenty of ways to do it here between simple arcade-style games, more realistic simulations, Dynasty mode, and online play, just to name a few ways.
Despite some rough edges on the player models and a kinda static crowd, the graphics are both outstanding and realistic. Great attention to detail shows in accurate recreation of fields and team logos, and the animation i...
TO MANY TEAMS TO CHOOSE FROM!
Franchisee mode is more addictive then pro leagues
battle songs from your favorite colleges play during menu's.
realtime score updates during your games in franchisee mode to help when keeping track of the other hundreds of games in the ncaa.
Graphics are simple but not bad. I dont play games to look at stadiums. WIND is killer and seems to be to effect gameplay sometimes to much. be careful for 20-25mph winds on rare occasions.Summary:
Most important TEAMS TEAMS TEAMS with the option of setting "EVEN TEAMS" pregame. Tons of school battle songs. Great franchise play as well as historic battles. Lots of things to do/play/try out. Laidback as compared to other football titles including Espn 2k5, Madden2k5. Glad i got this on the used table as its replaced my gametime spent on espn 2k5 and other sports games.
More laidback and hard to put controller down

This is the best! Everything is good. I ranked it 5, because the few things that are wrong, are minor and don't compare to the Good Items.
First of all the graphics are realistic and k00l. There are many new items, such as Big Hits, where you can blow opponets' socks off. The Staduim Pulse is where you can Pump the Crowd up, and make it harder for the Offense, while you're on defense. Dynasty Mode is new, and it's like a Franchise, though much more detailed. On the menu screen for Dynasty Mode, you can view Sports Illustrated, and get details of rankings and Heisman candidates. You can own m...
Home Field Advantage feature adds more realism to the games
Big plays don't occur every other play
Similar controls to Madden
Very realistic Dynasty mode
Allows you to send players over to Madden 2005 or Madden 2005 Collectors Edition
Match up Stick
Rosters with real player names available at ps2rosters.com if you have a maxdrive (recommended), xport or sharkport
hot and cold streaks
No Hit Stick (instead there is a button)
Inability to control more than 12 teams in a Dynasty
No tournament mode
Inability to simulate a game outside of Dynasty
Some scheduling system flaws (if you are an Independent team, you can schedule all your games other than a bowl against weak division I-AA teams and you will then be rewarded with a top 10 ranking and lots of 5* recruits)
You have to download rosters with a game save device to get real player names
NCAA Football has a lot of features that the people at Madden's development team need to add. I know most of the magazine reviewers didn't like them, but magazine reviewers are paid off by developers to rate games better. The create mode features are similar to what Madden has. That means creating playbooks (but unlike Madden, you can't do actual plays), players, teams and (another way this game is different than Madden) signs.
The main reason that I have bought games in this series is that I want real rookies going into the NFL for 4 years. It is great to be able to follow the future NF...
Value and Longevity: 10/10
Tilt of Mars: 9/10
Another game in the line of college football games from EA Sports, NCAA 2005 has improved on its predecessors in many various ways.
The graphics are some of the best graphics in any sports game on the PS2, except possibly the ESPN line of sports games. There are a few cases of clipping here and there, but that's one of the only faults. The graphics are very sharp and the motions are fluid, except for that clipping problem I mentioned.
The sound of the game is what separates the college game from the ...
