NCAA Football 2011 could be the best college football game ever
Everything has been improved from years past. In years past, I felt like that NCAA Football was simply the college roster version of Madden. Not this year, it has distinguished itself finally
The presentation is absolutely awesome. With new menus & ESPN finally being used correctly it adds to the gaming experience. Also Facebook/Twitter are integrated. The menus aren't cumbersome as 1 may think.
The graphics are off the chart, with some exceptions. The crowds were as normal. I had a few hitches in frame rate, but they are extremely rare. The graphics are delightful to look at & are smooth.
The sound is fresh & the crowds can be felt. The music is great. But as with any sports game, the announcers become old to listen to. I wish there was a fix to this, but alas there isn't.
The game play is the best part of this game. There is something for everyone. If you want to play a dynasty, you have the option to play online with others or alone off line. If you want to play one game you can. If you want to play as one player and integrate your player into the upcoming Madden you can. You can play one game online also. The AI has been dramatically improved and is finally something to brag about instead of rail against. For example, instead of the blockers blocking the man directly in front of them, they actually play their assignment. The schools play exactly like they actually do and run the same offense which is a plus.
The only complaint: Online pass. Unless you buy the game, you have to pay to play online. You do get a 7-day free trial though (that is for ALL EA games. So use it wisely). However, with my recommendation that shouldn't be an issue.
I very rarely give this recommendation, but BUY this game. I will be keeping my disc. I'd also recommend buying that way, since it is cheaper. You will also get the online pass code along with your box when you buy it through Gamefly.

I got NCAA Football 11 and by the looks of it when I first started it, I could tell it was going to be a great game!! the overall gameplay deserves a 10 out of 10, not even including the other game modes. There is Dynasty, Online Dynasty, and continuing from last year, Road to Glory. The Dynasty mode is great!! You can Play as all 120 FBS College Football Teams. The Dynasty and Online Dynasty Mode also have a brand-new recruiting mode that is more realistic. The Online Dynasty allows you to join any dynasty you want just by searching it. You can also make user-created stories throughout the dynasty. Once it is bowl week you don't have to wait your turn for your bowl game. Every bowl game is at the same time in Online Dynasty. There is still Season Showdown and Teambuilder. You can also access your online dynasty on your computer by going to by visiting the website for Online Dynasty. There is the new 120 ways to win featuring every college football teams Authenic Offensive Play Style including One-Back, Spread, No-Huddle, No-Huddle Spread, and Air Raid. There is a new locomotion system with gameplay improvements. There is a new ESPN Broadcast with the scoreboard, songs, and Presentation. Last but not least is a new pre-game entrance system. Touch Howards Rock at Clemson, Lock Arms at Ohio State and Run through smoke at Miami!!!! NCAA Football 11 is a must buy game!!
