StickSkills.com writes, "The NCAA Football series has made massive strides in terms of features over the last two years with the introduction of Online Dynasty Mode and a deep Teambuilder feature allowing a vast array of options when creating a school. This year, rather than adding a new game mode or feature, the team at EA Tiburon focused more on refining the gameplay and improving current game modes.
One of the main gameplay improvements will be familiar to those who played Madden NFL 10, as the Pro-Tak tackling system has been added to NCAA Football for the first time. The Pro-Tak system is meant to eliminate canned animations, allowing for animation branches. In Madden, this meant that gang tackles were introduced for the first time, although the feature did have some issues."
