Ruser Saldana over at Game Kudos writes his take on the 18th instalment of the football franchise:
"EA Sports and developer Tiburon have made great strides in NCAA Football's running game. Previewing the play before the snap reveals who is blocking who; after the snap, linemen engage and hold their blocks much better than before. Runningbacks now have more room in the backfield and can get past the defensive line much easier. Jukes and spins have been improved, and the new Dual Stick Control allows for much finer control over these moves. Between the improved juke controls and superior blocking, the series' long time weakness has been turned into a strength."
