Itís unfortunate that EA doesnít take more pride in updating the gaming experience of their football titles with more major updates to improve gameplay. But on the other hand, why get off a winning horse? And NCAA Football 06
is definitely a winning horse. That is why youíll probably get a feeling of dťjŠ vu when playing this title for the first time.
While the core gameplay has virtually remained the same on the field, there are a couple of new features worth mentioning. There are now a few small mini-games that one or two players can compete in, similar to that found in Madden. Youíll also now be able to recruit players the entire year in Dynasty Mode, as well as have a bit more control on the field. The game also delivers hard hits and close-ups of the action whenever an "Impact Player" gets involved in a huge play on either offense or defense.
However, the biggest addition to an already great game has got to be the "Race for the Heisman" mode. Here youíll be able to create a Freshman at one of multiple positions, and try to develop him into the core athlete of your football program, in an effort to get him to also stand out among the entire league. Your quest for the ultimate individual prize begins now.
