As we enter into the month of August the college football season is just around the corner. As they do every year, EA Sports has inundated just about every system – less the Wii – with a new version of NCAA Football. Such is the case on the PSP where handheld fanatics will find the new Road to Glory mode, the super-sim ability that console fans have enjoyed for years, and a new progression system designed specifically to move your fledging star through the ranks.
But does all of that amount to a game worth its sticker price or is the gameplay still stuck in the rut set by last year's effort? Read on for the answer.
It's no surprise that TeamBuilder and Season Showdown didn't make it into this version of NCAA Football 10. The infrastructure required to support those features simply doesn't make sense on the PSP. What you will find is a slightly trimmed down version of Road to Glory, the mode where you craft an incoming freshman, run through a series of specialized drills, and then build him up into the campus legend that we all wish we were in our college days.
