PS3 Review: NCAA Football 10

July 30, 2009Written by Joseph Peterson


One thing that cannot be emphasized enough is the level of excitement this game brings. Whether it’s a championship game or a rivalry game, this game brings the most excitement ever generated in a college football title. It is a great experience that should be played by fans of football. One of the best moments I remember from the game occurred when I was playing with the Texans Longhorns in the Red River Shootout against Oklahoma. I was down by 4 and there were only 30 seconds left in the game. Problem was that I had about 65 yards to go, with very little time to traverse that distance. After a few successful passing plays I was on the 30 yard line with about 4 seconds left.

With that little amount of time left, as well as the score difference, I knew I had to go for the endzone. So I dropped back with Colt McCoy and all three of my receivers were completely covered; the only shot I had was my Tight End, Blaine Irby. So I lofted the pass downfield trying to get it over the linebacker and safety who were covering him. Sure enough, Irby caught it and had enough room to drag his foot after running his post route. By this time I’m standing up in front of my TV grinning ear to ear over what had just occurred. Not many sports games can elevate your heart rate based on excitement and atmosphere alone, NCAA Football 10 is the game that can. It is the perfect college football title, and the best one I have ever played.
