NCAA Football 11 Review

Overall NCAA Football 11 is a great game of pigskin that hardcore college football fans are really going to enjoy. The core gameplay has been taken to the next level with some cool animation varieties as well as sweeping changes like the elimination of turbo and adding dual analog control. On the field all of these nuances come together with the new look to make a cool, original-feeling game. However, if you don't take advantage of the connectivity offered by Online Dynasty, then the list of modes is going to feel outright dated. If you do take advantage of the new features in Online Dynasty, you're in for a lot of fun with only a few frustrations.

The complete, $60 package of NCAA Football 11 is the best that the series has produced in some time. Here's hoping that EA Sports builds out Road to Glory and the core Dynasty Mode to give them the same fresh feeling that the gameplay now enjoys.

IGN Ratings for NCAA Football 11 (X360)
Rating Description
out of 10
9.0 Presentation
New menu designs and enhanced ESPN integration is wonderful and adds quite a lot to the experience. Field-level instant replays are neat, too.
8.5 Graphics
Player models look great, but crowd members could be more detailed. Framerate hitches and clipping are rare, but overall the in-game action looks fantastic with smooth animations and interactions.
7.5 Sound
The crowd is more alive than ever, but Herbstreit and Nessler could use a healthy dose of personality as well as some fresh dialogue.
9.0 Gameplay
The new animations and control mechanics work wonderfully with the AI improvements to make this the best playing football game in history.
8.0 Lasting Appeal
The list of modes benefits greatly from better Online Dynasty functionality, but it needs some new life in other areas.
