The game is a solid representation of the college experience, from the myriad of unique plays to the screaming fans and mascots at campus stadiums. Road to Glory mode is a neat way to capture a player's individual career. Players juggle between games, practices, and keeping their grades up en route to a memorable career. Throughout the season, ESPN reporter Erin Andrews offers recaps using highlights from a player's previous game.

Not only can players guide a current college team to a championship, but they can build their own team with the innovative TeamBuilder feature. Players can build teams either through the game or on the TeamBuilder website, and can also upload their own images to use as logos. Controls are still very deep, but the game now includes a Family Play scheme that simplifies action on the field. Between the game modes and easier controls, NCAA Football 10 delivers a satisfying sports experience.

Online interaction: Players can engage in open chat with others when online. Discussions can be limited using parental settings on some consoles.
