Is It Any Good?

The color commentary from Lee Corso is a "love it or loathe it" proposition -- but that's a pretty good definition of a color commentator. The calls and advice can be wacky -- you can be up by four touchdowns and Corso will still tell you "this is a close game." Right.

Overall presentation of this gridiron classic is stellar, with superb graphics and sound. The game has you pick your favorite school and then presents the game in that school's colors, with their fight song playing. This makes starting the game, especially with friends and rivals nearby, a source of alumni (or in some cases, wishful alumni) pride. Expect to see familiar college stadiums and mascots, and hear marching bands while playing.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
