EA SPORTS attempts to re-create the atmosphere, distinct play style, and program depth college football is known for with the release of NCAA Football 2003. In addition to all 117 Division I-A and 27 Division I-AA teams, players can create their own alma mater and lead it to glory through any of the game modes. Players can also participate in an enhanced Dynasty Mode with custom schedules for non-conference games and greater coaching options in the areas of recruitment and roster management.
How teams perform on the field will influence the chances of recruiting a top high-school athlete, contribute to the program's overall prestige, and determine the number of people who show up for games. As players build their program from the ground up, selecting the team's name, mascot, fight song, logo, and colors, they will be able to compete in one of 28 bowl games, challenge an archrival, and earn pennants to unlock various teams, stadiums, and cheats.
The atmosphere is heightened with the inclusion of 3D cheerleaders, 200 chants and fight songs, school-specific entrances, and commentary from the broadcasting trio of Kirk Herbstreit, Brad Nessler, and Lee Corso. Among the new animations featured are stiff arms, standing catches, broken tackles, and swatting the ball. Team playbooks offer more choices on offense, including WR splits, option variations, and more. As a special bonus, players who also purchase Madden NFL 2003 will be able to unlock secret Madden Cards. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
