GamePro (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.

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.

Cheat Code Central (Jul 24, 2006)
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.

PGNx Media (Jul 25, 2006)
Although not quite as full-featured as its current-generation counterparts, NCAA Football 07 on the Xbox 360 is a solid game of college football. The atmosphere and enthusiasm that the game portrays is second to none.

XboxAchievements (Aug 19, 2007)
The game is good. An easy and fun game to play, with a few extra’s thrown into the mix. Repetition diminishes some of that fun, but if you are a football fan, and love playing games like this, this is the game for you!

Never played EA's awesome NCAA Football game before? Welcome back to Earth! How was your stay aboard the mothership? You have played NCAA Football before? Then rent before buying.

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.

Gamers' 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…

Worth 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.

TeamXbox (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.

Kombo.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
Gaming 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.

Gaming 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".

GamingTrend (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.
82
GameZone (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.

GameSpot (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.

Gamer 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.

Maxim 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.

Yahoo! 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.

G4 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.

Game 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.
80
GameSpy (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.

Darkstation (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.
79
Video 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
Console 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.
78
Daily 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.

IGN (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.

Game 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.

Netjak (Jan 16, 2007)
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.

Mygamer.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.

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.

Game 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.

Atomic 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.
70
Operation 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.

Game 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.
67
1UP (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.
67
Game 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.

GameDaily (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.

The 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.
