Is It Any Good?

Our review:

Although NCAA Football 11 doesn't add any sport-relevant game modes, it has made significant strides where it counts most: on the field. The overall action has improved greatly compared to previous years. Computer-controlled teammates and opponents react more accurately and smartly. This allows players to focus on what makes college football better than the NFL, such as the varied playbooks. The game has nailed down the atmosphere of a college event as well, with fans roaring in the stands and mascots jumping around in support of their school. Along with the depth of the Dynasty Mode and player-driven Road to Glory mode, this is arguably the best version of NCAA Football to hit Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Online interaction: This game features open online voice communication, which means players could run into others using profanity, discussing inappropriate subjects, or requesting personal information. Common Sense Media does not recommend online play for pre-teens.
