NCAA Football 2006 (Microsoft Xbox, 2005)

|The "06" version of EA's annual collegiate outing features a new emphasis on the "Race for the Heisman," as evidenced by the cover shot of Desmond Howard's famous (infamous?) end zone pose, taken in 1991 while he played for the University of Michigan. Gamers can design a custom player, to lead out of high school and through a complete career of All-American college football. With gameplay honed through years of development by EA Sports' award-winning studios, character-based elements such as fan mail, a dorm room that gradually fills with awards, and the individual player's quest for college football's most highly recognized honor bring a new level of personalization to this year's edition of NCAA Football.
Another new feature in NCAA Football 06 is the Impact Player. Each team has three impact players, usually the three highest rated players on the roster, but there is always at least one impact player on offense and on defense. (In Dynasty mode some teams only have two Impact Players in later years, but a third is named later in the season. Impact players will also change based on performance or lack thereof.) Some teams' kickers or punters are impact players, too. Offensive linemen are never impact players in the game. Impact players are called upon to make big plays when "in the zone" (indicated by their white impact icon underneath them pulsating). If they execute a big play, action pauses and the camera zooms in on the tackle, juke move, etc.
Still around from the previous version are the Top 25 toughest places to play (The University of Florida's Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, or "The Swamp", remains #1 in 06), a still-revamped Dynasty Mode (with a new In-Season Recruiting feature), all-time and historic teams, Create-a-School, and much more.
Upon its release, NCAA Football 06 was the best-selling video game for July 2005, occupying both the number 1 and number 2 spots corresponding to the PlayStation 2 and Xbox versions respectively.
The game was also met with positive reception on release. GameRankings and Metacritic gave it a score of 87.68% and 87 out of 100 for the Xbox version.
