We could ramble on about other improvements -- in fact, we will. The Heisman difficulty level seems really balanced for the first time in years. The running game is great, with grind-it-out yardage available inside and game-breaking moves to be had outside. User picks and user catching is enjoyable and spot-on controlwise, offering those with stick skills a true advantage. The only thing missing, in fact, seems to be a tailgate, a grill, and some food and beverages. Those without the next-gen need not worry. NCAA Football 07 for the PS2 is an ESPN/EA instant classic.

Xbox 360GamePro (US) (Jul 18, 2006)
Without a doubt, NCAA 07 Football is a must-own title and one of the greatest football games to date. While some Xbox 360 games are hard to distinguish from their last-generation counterparts, this version of NCAA 07 is by far the superior title and is well worth the extra cash. Football fans who put off buying an Xbox 360 to wait for Madden 07 might want to consider making an early purchase to pick up this paramount achievement in sports gaming.

XboxWorth Playing (Aug 06, 2006)
What makes NCAA Football 07 so incredible is a single world: immersion. From the in game cheering to your campus legend's dorm room, you will be drawn into an atmosphere that's been missing from previous years' NCAAs or any other game of this variety. NCAA 07 not only improves on its predecessors but its big brother and every game before it. Any football fan owes it to himself to give this game a spin, as should anyone who wants to become initiated in one of the greatest sports video game franchises. Generally, I play NCAA until I make a quick option to Madden for the rest of year. This year however, I think I may hang on to the ball for quite some time, making the long break down the field until next season.

XboxArmchair Empire, The (Aug 21, 2006)
With so many amazingly awesome features and the gold standard of college football gameplay, NCAA Football 07 is without doubt the ultimate college football game for the college football fan (even for a Temple University football “fan”). Online play, new features, and completely perfect gameplay once again show everybody why NCAA Football 07 is always considered one of the best sports video games year in and year out.

XboxGameZone (Jul 18, 2006)
NCAA Football 2007 is more than a simple upgrade of last year’s entry. Much the game, from the AI to the playbooks, has been revamped completely, and the new features and campus legend mode are a lot of fun. College football fans owe it to themselves to check this one out.

PlayStation 2Gamers' Temple, The (Aug 09, 2006)
I don't really have much negative to say about the game. If I was to nitpick I could say things like there was too much in-game advertising . While I don't mind Coke sponsoring the kickoff with just graphics, I do have a problem hearing the announcer talk about Old Spice every time I'm in the red zone. It's not that I like Coke that much more than Old Spice, although I do, but more of simple graphics compared to voice advertising. I also can't say I like the way EA make you either pay $2 to play online or to waive the $2 you have to agree to let ESPN spam you.

PlayStation 2GamePro (US) (Jul 18, 2006)
Considering the technical limitations of the Playstation 2, NCAA 2007 is damn close to being a perfect game. Graphically, the game still manages to outperform last year's title, with updated character models and sharper on-field visuals, though it still suffers from a few bland and clunky character animations (most noticeable in the crowd close-ups and visually weak ESPN gameday introductions). The thundering audio boasts the usual set of booming marching tunes and top-notch commentary, although Lee Corso's ultra-annoying observations wear thin rather quickly. Even the AI seems to have undergone a few tweaks, as last year's unreliable pass blocking and pass coverage have been improved along with the increased difficulty in scoring on kickoff and punt returns. Not surprisingly, NCAA 2007 is a no-brainer buy for college football fans, and well worth a look from even the most casual of sports gamers.

PlayStation 2PGNx Media (Jul 25, 2006)
NCAA Football 07 for PS2 may not look as good as the Xbox 360 version, but it is by far more full-featured. There are tons of modes in the game promising countless of gameplay. The atmosphere and enthusiasm that the game portrays are amazing, second only to the Xbox 360 version.

PlayStation 2Gamer 2.0 (Jul 27, 2006)
It seems like EA Sports is going to keep on chuggin’ when it comes to their NCAA Football series. Time and time again we see them make improvements to the series, and this one proves that they’ve mastered development of this series. Unlike most developers, when EA decides to make changes in their games, they also keep the “favorite” modes in there. From just plain old quick play to the hilarious Mascot mode, everything is in NCAA Football 07. It’ll be hard to think of where EA should start with next year’s game, but here’s to hoping it’s in revamping the franchise mode once again. But in the end, is NCAA Football 07 worth your time? It definitely is, no matter what version of the game you choose. The console versions of the game will keep you busy until next year, or at least until Madden NFL 07 comes out; the Xbox 360 version stands tall among other collegiate sports games on the console; and the PSP version is the perfect way to showcase your school pride on the go.

PlayStation 2Game Vortex (Aug 12, 2006)
Overall, this title is another best-seller in the long-standing series, and with added features such as improved graphics, momentum meter, endless “tweakability” and more, you really can’t go wrong here. It is the perfect companion for those hazy Autumn skies, and will astronomically increase your knowledge of both players and the game itself, for the upcoming college football season.

There simply is no way to underestimate the passion fans have for the game of college football. By once again capturing that electric atmosphere in NCAA 07, and combining it with an ever-evolving set of control tweaks and gameplay modes, EA Sports has created a game that no fan of football video games--be they college or pro--will want to be without.

PSPKombo.com (Aug 18, 2006)
NCAA 07 Football is the most complete version of a console title in years. EA Sports took their time in creating a deep football gaming experience with its extensive gameplay modes and clear visuals. NCAA 07 Football should be a model of what developers can do with the PSP and truly make it a PlayStation Portable, which is what Sony had intended from the beginning.

XboxTeamXbox (Jul 18, 2006)
It’s the new modes and small details that NCAA 07 packs into an Xbox disc that really put it over the top. Campus Legend is a fun distracter from the typical dynasty mode, and the new touches that they’ve added to the package like the new spring activities flesh it all out nicely. Put this feature set on the Xbox 360 version and then watch the series really take off into the next-generation.

PlayStation 2GameZone (Jul 27, 2006)
With a bevy of options, some tweaking to the kicking mechanics (almost to the point where you think you are playing golf with the kicker’s leg), and all the other accoutrements in the game modes, EA’s NCAA Football 07 is a joyful gridiron game. The game does have a few short games, but still manages to convert on third down in the fun arena. For those who have owned the 2006 version, the changes are plenty but may not be enough to warrant a purchase – unless you are looking for improved gameplay mechanics; but for college football fans who don’t have an NCAA video game, this is a sure-fire winner.
87
If you?re looking for an indication of whether Madden 07 for the 360 will be any good, NCAA 07 makes it safe to assume that EA's flagship game will have the goods. If you're just looking for a good football experience on the 360, this game delivers there as well.

XboxIGN (Jul 16, 2006)
NCAA Football 07 manages to capture the back and forth emotional tide of the college experience quite well with this year's inclusion of the momentum mechanic. True, it may turn teams into superhuman squads on both sides of the ball when they're fully pumped up, but the feeling that the game can swing on just about any play is a welcome addition for any player that wants to feel like Captain Comeback. Tie in the additional changes made for both offense and defense, as well as the trick plays and playbooks and you're looking at a great football title for NCAA fans.

When making a decision on the Xbox 360 version of NCAA 07, it really boils down to whether you can stomach losing out on single-player depth in favor of improved visuals and stadium experience. On its own merit, this title provides near-perfect football gameplay with a decent dynasty mode. But when stacked next to the Xbox and PS2, its hard to justify the extra ten dollar price tag for a less extensive overall experience.

Xbox 360ZTGameDomain (Jul 27, 2006)
NCAA 07 is a great first attempt at next generation college football, with a few holes that make it stumble. Its clear that the franchise is on its way from breaking out from the shadow of its older, more popular sibling, Madden. Sports fans or anyone who truly enjoys a competitive game should check out NCAA 07.

Xbox 360Gamers' Temple, The (Aug 07, 2006)
Lastly I want to mention that Kirk Herbstreit and Lee Corso return to provide the play-by-play and color commentary for the game. They do an excellent and enthusiastic job and it really adds a lot to the game. My one complaint is that the comments seem to be recycled more often than they were in the past. I played the heck out of NCAA Football 06 on the Xbox and it seems that the pair had far more to say in that version than in this. Perhaps this is another of those next-gen cutbacks…

Xbox 360Worth Playing (Aug 25, 2006)
For NCAA 07 Football's first entry onto the Xbox 360, EA gave it the good old college try … of the lazy guy who doesn't go to class but still manages to get decent grades and have a lot of fun. Was it everything I'd hoped it would be? Nope. Was it everything I know it can be? Nope. Have I been able to put it down since I got it? Not a chance. Perhaps next year, EA Tiburon will be more comfortable with the new hardware and dedicate the time necessary to truly take this franchise into next-gen territory. If they can do that and keep the acclaimed gameplay at the same level, football fans will rejoice, and keg stands will be enjoyed by all.

Xbox 360TeamXbox (Jul 18, 2006)
While the Xbox 360 version doesn’t pack the same amount of features or overall depth that the Xbox version does it’s still a truly next-gen football offering that is definitely worth your time and money. The visuals alone, as long as you’re playing on a solid HD set, are worth the sixty bucks at times. The gameplay is fun and addictive and the online mode, while not as deep as a 2K Sports offering would have been, is still fun nonetheless. There’s still room for improvement, but in the end NCAA 07 is as fun and entertaining an offering as we can expect for the series’ first time out on the Xbox 360.

PlayStation 2Game Revolution (Jul 28, 2006)
And apparently, the same goes for EA. Over the past six years they’ve released six great college football games for current-gen systems, and that tradition doesn’t end here. With the enhanced Campus Legend content, realistic momentum system, excellent “Get the Jump” mechanic and the tried-and-true core gameplay, this is another championship season from the official alma mater of college football games. Go team.

PSPPGNx Media (Jul 25, 2006)
NCAA Football 07 for PSP may not look as good as the console versions but it is very full-featured, almost matching the PSP version feature for feature. Even though the spring minigames and Campus Legend modes are gone, there are still tons of modes in the game promising countless of gameplay. The atmosphere and enthusiasm that the game portrays are remarkable, especially for a portable title.

Xbox 360Kombo.com (Sep 11, 2006)
NCAA Football 07 for the Xbox 360 isn’t the best football game for Microsoft’s next-gen console, but for college students and passionate NCAA gurus, this is certainly the game to get. It isn’t feature-packed as the current-gen versions, but this next-gen pigskin title will definitely satisfy the collegiate-infused gamer.
83
Xbox 360Gaming Target (Jul 20, 2006)
Instead of a sports game stripped to its bare essentials that’s ever-so-popular among debuts on a console, NCAA Football 07 has depth written all over it. EA Tiburon has added so many features to its college series, from the stifling number of animations, to the altered kicking system, to the fresh mini-games--the list goes on and on. Even though the game has a number of noteworthy encumbrances, the laundry list of inclusions helps overshadow any petty gripes. The fact that NCAA Football sat out a season from the next-gen lineup allowed it to develop into a polished pigskin title fans can enjoy.

Xbox 360Gaming Age (Aug 03, 2006)
The real choice of which is the superior version of NCAA Football 2007 is up to you. If you want modes that will keep you busy until next college season, then by all means the current gen versions are a no brainer. If you are a graphics whore and want the best football game to date on next-gen platforms (until Madden comes out), then the Xbox 360 version is for you. No matter which category you fall into, as they said in Nintendo's Pro Wrestling, "A winner is you".

XboxGame Shark (Aug 01, 2006)
Despite any grandiose new features, NCAA 07 is a smashing success. Yes, it's a glorified patch for last year's game – but it plays such a better game of football that the lack of new snazzy features should not stop fans from grabbing a copy. This is the best that the series has been since the 2004 version and shows that the franchise is finally back on the right track.
82
Xbox 360GamingTrend (Sep 07, 2006)
You get NCAA football on your 360 this year. That’s the good news. The bad is that the NCAA football you do get, has holes in every department. Everything is good, but could be better. The omission of features that are present in last gen systems is inexcusable. You have more of everything available to you, so why don’t you use it for more than extra shiny helmets? NCAA is a good game but it could be a great game and that’s a bit of a shame. This is the constant struggle with sports gaming. Every year you think you’d be one step closer to the “Ultimate” game, but for all the improvements it still leaves you wanting more.

PSPGame Chronicles (Aug 03, 2006)
I was impressed (and saddened) that the PSP actually surpassed the 360 in ESPN authenticity, bringing back both the magazine and radio as well as the real-world sports ticker. And all of those cinematic camera angles, tight zooms, and slow-motion moments really add some excitement to college football.
82
Xbox 360GameZone (Jul 27, 2006)
EA’s first next-generation iteration of their popular college football game is good, but it is lacking many things that should have made it great, such as many features that are in current-generation versions of this game. I don’t know if it is due to time constraints but I hope that this gets fixed in the next version of the game. Other than that, if you are in the mood for a good college football game for your Xbox 360 then you will want to pick up NCAA Football 2007.

Xbox 360GameSpot (Jul 19, 2006)
Though not having an entry in the NCAA series on the 360 last year was a bummer, it gave the development team time to create a game that is certainly heading in the right direction this year. Though NCAA Football 07 isn't as full-featured as the same game on older consoles, the game that is there is a fun and potent mix of responsive controls, challenging gameplay, and, of course, that good old-fashioned college spirit.

PlayStation 2Game Over Online (Aug 30, 2006)
This presents an interesting dilemma. You have a choice of either settling for a less attractive game on an older system, or paying more for a title that's lacking in features, but has awesome graphics. This bizarre move by EA marred what would've been a perfectly good entry in the series. Hopefully they'll give us a complete experience across the board next year, rather than holding things back.

PSPYahoo! Games (Jul 19, 2006)
To the general public, Madden is EA's top football franchise. But we've recently found NCAA Football to be consistently more entertaining and a better model of the game overall. Fortunately for those with a PSP, that's the case with the portable version as well. It's a more robust and enjoyable showing than Madden offered, and a generally solid game of football.

Xbox 360Maxim Magazine (Jul 17, 2006)
It's not all that other stuff the back of the box will tell you. Forget the Momentum System that adds clock-ticking tension to big plays, the intensive spring training and drill-running, and the ESPN license actually put to good use. It's the ability to live the life of a student athlete—balancing parties, homework, and practice—that demands expansion. Imagine: a playbook of beer bong strategies.

Xbox 360Yahoo! Games (Jul 19, 2006)
Even with cuts made to the major game modes, NCAA 07 looks like a total triumph compared to the neutered Madden released last year for the Xbox 360. And it's definitely a fun, respectable game. But it needs to be more than that to really keep our attention; even the graphics bump might not be enough to make you ditch the current gen versions or (shh!) Take 2's efforts.

Xbox 360G4 TV: X-Play (Aug 13, 2006)
It goes without saying that NCAA on the Xbox 360 will be a huge hit no matter how good or bad it is. It’s nice to see that EA is still working on improving the franchise, however, and they’ve delivered a generally solid product here that manages to sidestep the rookie woes most first-run sports titles suffer from on new hardware. Consider it an apology for EA’s underwhelming 360 sports lineup last year.

Xbox 360GameSpy (Jul 20, 2006)
While it's not quite as strong as its current-gen iterations, NCAA Football 07 is a great next-gen kickoff for one of our favorite sports series. The developers nailed the feeling of being in the middle of a rockin' stadium on game day, and the game looks as good as anything we've played on the Xbox 360. The online play is a bit disappointing, but we're hopeful that EA can fix the glitches in its system. Still, if you're one of those people that have been waiting until the release of Madden NFL 07 to buy an Xbox 360, you might want to rethink your decision. NCAA Football 07 might just be the best next-gen football action you'll see all year.

Xbox 360Darkstation (Jul 26, 2006)
Although I would have loved to see the deepest experience the series has ever seen right out of the gate on the Xbox 360, I suppose that is asking for too much. However when you look at the final product on the Xbox 360, I see a game that has a very high production value, and got great results. It may not be the best game the series has put out, but for its debut on the Xbox 360, it is nothing to be ashamed of.

Xbox 360Video Game Generation (Aug 16, 2006)
If you don’t own an original Xbox or PS2 (or better graphics are your top priority), then this version is a worthwhile purchase and will keep you entertained well after Madden arrives. Otherwise, it’s probably best to get a current-gen version instead and hope they put it all together for next year’s next-gen installment.
78
Xbox 360Console Monster (Aug 11, 2006)
Overall, NCAA Football 07 is a very solid game of football. While this game doesn’t have a lot of added content to give this as much replay as it could, the dynasty mode could last some a long time and has a lot of customization and micromanagement for people that really like to get into the meat of what college football is all about. Although it is not without its problems, the overall package is enough for college football fans to definitely buy this game.

Xbox 360Daily Game (Aug 23, 2006)
Since the bar has been raised year after year, we all tend to expect something mind-blowing with each passing release, and it most cases in the past, it had been delivered. Maybe that anticipation was raised with the graduation to the next generation of gaming consoles and we are all left wanting much more in this title. EA did owe us more with this release, but we're going to have to chalk it up to the title being a virgin on this generation of consoles. We can only hope NCAA 08 returns to the glory we have come top expect from it... and possibly another run at the Madden football crown.

PSPGameSpot (Jul 18, 2006)
In all, NCAA Football 07 is a good option for the devoted college-football faithful, and the PSP version brings more quality than quantity. Here's hoping future installments of the PSP series not only bring the game up to the console's standards in terms of sheer content but also make use of the inherent advantages of the handheld platform (such as letting you synchronize your dynasty between the PSP and console versions of the game). For now, it's nice to know that you can bring the passion of college pigskin with you, no matter where you go.

Overall this is a fun game that delivers on a lot of fronts. The graphics are solid and the gameplay delivers where it matters most, playing the football game (deep passing being too easy not withstanding). While the soundtrack bothered me, I can live with it. The real issue is in the Dynasty and Legend modes, in particular the latter. Dynasty has been improved but still feels a little too “same old, same old” while the Legend just screams for more depth and exciting possibilities. If you haven’t tried NCAA Football for a few years, it is definitely worth checking out. If you are a diehard fan, you already own it. And if you are just trying to pass the time till Madden, it is worth a rent. Just don’t expect the wheel to have been reinvented quite yet.

While it isn’t going to win any awards, NCAA Football 07 does something even more important - it makes you feel a little bit better about all that money you spent on your PSP. And as much as we wish the whole thing was bigger, stronger and faster, we’re happy with it just the way it is and recommend recruiting it for your PSP collection.

Xbox 360IGN (Jul 18, 2006)
The next-gen NCAA Football was among the most anticipated sports titles since the announcement of the Xbox 360. Football fans everywhere wondered where EA would take one of the best-looking and best-playing sports titles next. Unfortunately, EA took NCAA a few steps backward. Yes, the game looks, sounds and plays well, but there is a noticeable lack of polish and a painful lack of depth. If EA ironed out the graphical glitches and framerate, if EA increased the ESPN presence, and if EA included the awesome Campus Legend mode, this could have been the sports game of the year. While NCAA 07 is a good game, there are just too many ifs. NCAA 07 is a worthwhile football game that will always make us wonder what could have been.

Xbox 360Game Shark (Jul 31, 2006)
NCAA Football 07 lives up to the hype on the front of the box. EA says it’s the #1 selling NCAA Football Franchise on the 360 and it’s also the best NCAA Football franchise on the 360. Of course, it’s also the ONLY NCAA Football game so you don’t have a whole lot of options. In conclusion, I would still recommend the 360 version of the game over any other version because 1) you don’t miss the features you didn’t use last year and 2) once you’ve seen this game run on a 360, playing the same version on the original Xbox is like going from an original Game Boy to a Nintendo DS. There’s still some work that needs to be done to flesh out the dynasty mode, and some online leagues would be great, but there’s definitely a very enjoyable game here and it’s worth buying.

PSPGameZone (Jul 27, 2006)
Unlike the excellent console version, NCAA Football 07 for the PSP isn’t the best college football game you’ll play but it has enough pigskin action to keep fans of the sport in the game for a long while. The unfortunate choice to leave out mini-games, the great Campus Legend mode and some extra goodies is upsetting but what we have here is a football game that doesn’t disappoint when it comes to the college football scene.

NCAA Football 07 for the Xbox 360 adds a layer of high definition polish to a franchise that was beginning to feel a bit to familiar year-to-year on the Xbox and PlayStation 2. The feature list might not yet be as robust as a fan of the series would like, but the gameplay and atmosphere is exciting enough to make playing through a single game an enjoyable experience. During the likely drought of Xbox 360 game releases in the spring and summer of this year, you might want to give NCAA 07 a shot if for nothing more than to replicate some of 2006's great matchups and to get excited for the 2007 season.

PSPGame Vortex (Aug 08, 2006)
NCAA 07 does some things right and other things wrong. The number of glitches found within really tarnishes what it could have been. If you’re a hardcore college football fan, or a football fan that just can’t wait for a portable football game, NCAA Football 07 is a decent pickup. If you can hold off, you might want to wait for Madden.

Xbox 360Mygamer.com (Dec 23, 2006)
NCAA 07 is a great first attempt at next generation college football, with a few holes that make it stumble. Its clear that the franchise is on its way from breaking out from the shadow of its older, more popular sibling, Madden. Sports fans or anyone who truly enjoys a competitive game should check out NCAA 07.

Xbox 360Game Informer Magazine (Aug, 2006)
Other loose ends, like iffy collision detection that turns inside runs into a mash-up of bodies and brings down ball carriers without wrap-up animations, left me considering benching this in favor of the current-gen version. It plays a good game of ball, though, thanks to the solid controls and return to a more traditional default camera angle.

PSPOperation Sports (Oct 06, 2006)
But if you crave some college gridiron action, and there's no console in reach, NCAA Football 07 will fit the bill. It doesn't really feel fresh or different, but it's quality video-game football served up with a little style on the side. There's always room for that, isn't there?

Xbox 360Game Freaks 365 (Aug 01, 2006)
Overall, NCAA Football 2007 is hardly worth the $60 price of admission on the Xbox 360. It's still a fun game to play, and it's just as hard to put down as any football game, but I'm very disappointed. I thought EA Sports learned their lesson when they got a less-than-friendly reception for their underwhelming launch titles, and I was especially hopeful when I factored in how great Fight Night Round 3 was, but NCAA Football 2007 doesn't stand among that game in the Xbox 360's sports genre. It's basically a college version of Madden NFL 2006 with mini-games, and that's not a good thing. Now, drop and give me $60.

Xbox 360Atomic Gamer (Mar 16, 2006)
So, to answer the question I posed at the beginning of the review – is it worth it? I’d have to come down and say no. If you’re dead-set on getting draft classes for Madden 07 on the 360, go rent the game and play it for a weekend. Admire the pretty graphics and have fun with the gameplay that doesn’t amount to much more than a 60 dollar tech demo – it is still worth a rental just to see what could have been. Hopefully, EA gets it right next year and doesn’t continue to skimp on the next gen systems.

Xbox 360Operation Sports (Aug 11, 2006)
The bottom line? NCAA Football 07 looks, sounds and feels the "next-gen" part, and for those of you waiting for a quality football title to play and play again in your Xbox 360, your game is finally here.

XboxVideo Game Talk (Sep 09, 2006)
Is this worth upgrading over an earlier version? Probably not, and it is better worth a rental. But parroting what I said in the Madden review, regardless of what I might say there are people who are going to buy every release of this game each and every year regardless of the additions.

XboxOperation Sports (Aug 08, 2006)
As much as I hate scoring these reviews, I’m going to save you some posts and nasty emails. I would give NCAA 2007 a perfect 10/10 based on the gameplay and the amount of fun I had with it. However, I’m knocking a point off for the lack of ESPN integration, the status quo on online play, and for not adding to the pre-game intros.

PSPIGN (Jul 17, 2006)
NCAA Football 07 manages to capture the back and forth emotional tide of the college experience quite well with this year's inclusion of the momentum mechanic. True, it may turn teams into superhuman squads on both sides of the ball when they're fully pumped up, but the feeling that the game can swing on just about any play is a welcome addition for any player that wants to feel like Captain Comeback. Unfortunately, the inaccurate yardage tracking basically removes the running game, and makes this year's NCAA Football a title only for players who like to air the ball out.

Xbox 360Game Chronicles (Aug 01, 2006)
I have to admit, I prefer NFL to NCAA so I’m obviously more anxious to play Madden than I was when I sat down to play NCAA Football 07. But now I am scared. EA has more than a year to polish this game and it came out pretty bad, or at least below expectations. For every nice touch, there was something far worse to overshadow it, for every new feature, we lost three, and I have never seen such a waste of the ESPN license.

If you're into college football and want to play it on the go, NCAA 07 has everything you need.

PSPNetjak (Sep 12, 2006)
NCAA Football 07 for the PSP would have made a great console game of college football. The core gameplay is enjoyable enough, and would be more so if it weren't for the run marking bug, but there is little about the game that makes it seem designed for a handheld platform. Dynasty mode might keep you occupied for 10 seasons, but the absence of both the spring drills minigames and an in-game save feature make NCAA 07 inadequate for short gaming sessions. Unless either the PSP is your primary game platform or you can’t live on the road without college football, NCAA Football 07 is difficult to recommend.

PSP1UP (Jul 21, 2006)
While the game isn't perfect, it's undoubtedly solid enough to warrant a purchase for college football enthusiasts, if for the dynasty mode alone. Mixed with all of the elements that made the PS2 games successes, NCAA Football 2007 for the PSP is a fun hybrid to waste time with while on-the-go, despite some control issues and a serious error in the running game.

Xbox 3601UP (Jul 19, 2006)
The quality of the game's presentation of integrated details like the sports ticker, and its ability to capture the excitement of college ball so well, help NCAA Football 07 manage a strong showing. And with expectations now set from nearly a year of Xbox 360 releases, that's no small feat. Like many a future collegiate star in his first year, it gives you flashes of greatness on the field...and the promise of next year.

Xbox 360Game Revolution (Jul 28, 2006)
Hopefully, the same will go for the Xbox 360, though the season is off to a bit of a rocky start. If you foolishly cut your regular Xbox from your living room lineup, this game will do; it’s better than Madden, anyway. But this is still the least impressive NCAA Football game to date, and a rare fumble from EA’s dominant team.

Xbox 360GameDaily (Jul 21, 2006)
I find myself frustrated by the Xbox 360 version of NCAA Football 07. It's a blown opportunity, due to all the corners that have been cut and the presentation issues that mar the excitement the sport's supposed to maintain. Some college football fans won't give a damn and will be happy with what's here. but it bugs me, just like Madden did last year in its rushed form. This Hofstra-esque beast just doesn't look as appealing to me on the next-gen format as I expected, leaving me to turn to the current-gen version for my college football jones. Oh, well, there's always next year...hopefully.

PSPVideo Game Generation (Aug 11, 2006)
In my experience, team sports games have never really been that good on portable systems. As long as the Game Boy line dominated the portable realm, each hardware release in the series was always a step or two below current consoles both in power and the number of buttons. While the PSP has the same problem (one analog stick, slightly sub-PS2 power, one set of shoulder buttons, etc.), technology has advanced to the point that a reasonable facsimile of a sports game’s console counterpart is now possible.

Xbox 360The Video Game Critic (Aug 01, 2006)
Admittedly, there are some nifty new animations, like players who hop over down linemen, and receivers who fight off tacklers for extra yardage. There are also impressive shots of the stadiums, although the coaches, sign-holding fans, and cheerleaders are nowhere to be found. EA is famous for adding superfluous, unwanted "features", and this year is no exception thanks to the new "jump snap" (waste of a button!) and "momentum meter" (worthless!). And why is this game titled "07"? How many college football games are scheduled after New Year's day? Two? On a positive note, the game does have a wonderfully insightful two-man commentator team. Because it's football, I will play NCAA 07, but this is still a disappointment.
