In terms of gameplay and control, NCAA GameBreaker 2001 is virtually the same game as NCAA GameBreaker 2000. Once again, this can be seen as a positive, since the GameBreaker series certainly has a wonderful control scheme. The game still gives you the option to choose between a standard control scheme or a more complex, total control setup that gives you the ability to direct passes more precisely. The basic mode is great for beginners who just want to play a game of football without having to memorize button configurations. Then, once you're comfortable, you have the ability to switch to the advanced controls for more control. The control as a whole is very responsive.
Better than Gameday, but not by much. Let’s hope that with the boost in power from PS2, Gamebreaker might make stellar improvements to the graphics and sound. With those two weak areas touched up, I do believe 989 will finally be in the hunt.
So how do I wrap up my true feelings about this game? Besides these glaring issues, GameBreaker 2001 does have a fun factor that cannot be denied. The excitement of college football is conveyed with some relative believability and once you hear those drums fire up, you have to acknowledge the fact that college ball is really electrifying. Handicapping the game, knowing full well it is on old hardware and pushing the 2 MB of RAM to their max, will alleviate some of the frustration found in playing the title. While NCAA 2001 from EA remains the winner in this race, diehard GameBreaker fans will still enjoy the overall look and feel of this college pigskin classic.
