NCAA Football 12

Let me make this straight. Before you go thinking, saying that you're going to be able to make 50-0 on your first game, WRONG. EA has improved the AI alot, and it makes the game more intriguing and fun. Dynasty is really fun, and the Online Dynasty makes it even better. Road to Glory is a genius idea by EA. You start as a character of your choice, your position. You rack up points by excelling at your position. Then, after you've racked up enough points to get a scholarship to your favorite college, you can continue on to play for that college. Like previous Madden, NCAA games, you can't just go into the depth chart and change your 3rd line into being a starter, you literally have to practice and work every week to build yourself up to a starter. Then, you think you're done. Wrong again, you build yourself up even more to have more control over the team. This is what puts this mode over the top. That's just your basic career mode. Not to mention you can free play as any college, and even just instantly just find someone to play against online to improve your rating. Then, there's not just normal playing either. You can actually play Mascot Mayhem, and play as a teams' mascot and play other mascots. It's rather funny. It's not a perfect ten, but it's definitely a game to rent. If you like it enough, you should get into your transportational vehicle, and get yourself down to your local game store to buy this game. Few games are worth buying, but this is one of the few! Rent & Buy today while it lasts!

This years version of NCAA Football is a solid addition to the collection. The game play is much smoother than in recent years. The Campus Legend mode has been reworked and improved. Dynasty mode is also a bit different with the option to start out as a cordinator. All in all the game is solid, however there just isn't many ways to improve the game itself. Maybe putting the ESPN the magazine covers and things like that would help. There also could be an option for voting on the coaches poll. What about the trophy games? It used to be a big point of this game and it doesn't seem to have the same importance in recent years. I would grade this a B+.

Best NCAA Game in MY OPINION

Best sports game I have ever played. I've played Mainly Baseball, Football, and College Football games most of my life (15 Yrs old). I remember playing NCAA 05 on the PS2, and thought that game was great. I've recently started playing Sports games again on the PS3. And out of all the games i've played (NBA 2k12 , MLB 12TheShow , NCAA 12) NCAA 12 takes the cake. I had thought MLB was the best sports game i've ever played because of the gameplay, amazing graphics (& I MEAN AMAZING) and all the online features you usually wouldn't get. I Had then played NBA 2k12, and that game was pretty good too, with the Amazing Gameplay, Great Graphics, Great & realistic commentary. But then came NCAA 12. Wow. IT has everything. AMAZING Graphics, AMAZING Gameplay, AMAZING Features, Like "Road to Glory" and the new and updated "Dynasty". This game is terrific. The online can be quite fun and the challenge if you find an opponent with a good connection.

PROS -
Amazing HD Graphics
Realistic Gameplay
Amazing Offline and Online Features
You can play for hours without getting Bored

CONS -
Must have Online Pass for online
Same overused Commentary since NCAA 08 w/ a couple new features
Sometimes hard to find a good connection online

Overall : 9
