NCAA Better Then EVER!

For all of those EA haters out there, I have 5 things to say to you:
1. Improved Gameplay / Locomotion
2. Improved Run Blocking
3. Improved Dynasty
4. Improved Stadiums
5. MOST REALISTIC SPORTS GAME EVER
6. ESPN!!!

This years installment of NCAA Football is arguably the best one yet, deffinately MY personal favorite. At first I knid of put this game down, put then I discovered on youtube a guy named Versuz2 put out a custom slider set and it makes the game SO REALISTIC, even on Heisman! I also discovered a downloadable roster from PSN name Luvtotha9s. This guy went over every single individual team and added the teams real player names! It's amazing. These two added bonuses make the game so much more fun and it makes it feel truly real!

I can't decide which I like more in the dynasty: playing my weekly game or my weekly recruiting. Recruiting is so much fun now because EA added a lot of new features to it.

Running the football is at an all time high thanks to the all new run blocking engine. Thank god I dont have to helplessly watch as my fullback runs idly by a defender 2 yards in front of me. It is truly about time they fixed this; this was my biggest problem with the NCAA Football and Madden franchises. The overall gameplay is so much better.

And as an added feature, and this has no effect whatsoever on game play, but now just like in NCAA Basketball, NCAA Football has partnered up with ESPN, and the game presentation looks like you're actually watchin a Saturday morning game on ESPN.

This game is the most realistic sports game I have ever played; Its my favorite game out right now and probably for a long, long time.

Graphics: A-
Realistic gameplay detail: A
AI: A strong B+ if not A-

I really loved the attention to detail EA payed to indiviual player reactions to being hit or sacked, even allowing us to see a grimmes or two from a quarterback or linebacker after making the hit.
I do have one question though. What the h.ll happened to the crowd. It looked like I had been taken back to Super Techmo Bowl, for all of you that actually remember that game. Graghically I think EA should definitely take whatever they did with NHL11 and apply it to all of their games, especially with the crowd.
In Dynasty mode I didn't like that I couldn't actually make my own coach and work my way up in the coaching ranks by winning and being offered better jobs later. Rather you are simply taking over and changing the name of an existing coach. You couldn't even see you coaching achievements and the coach of the year award was left off the list of trophies that could be won.
Aside from this I found that the Heisman difficulty level was way to easy especially for recruiting. I loved the format used for recruiting and being able to create players to through into the recruit field. However I was out recruited by UCF, USF and another low level team that I can't remember for my 5 star created recruits more then once. Oh did I mention I was playing as the florida Gators!!!

Outside of this in all modes the gameplay it's self was great. Fullbacks and guards getting upfield on a regular basis to make the perfectly timed block to let me get free into the open field was a definite pleasant surprise.
The computer never loses a challenge and it seems the player never wins them but over all I did like the penalty and big play fairness of the game. There was a slight glitch however with the challenge replay. If the quarter ends or a timeout is called most plays wil be unreviewable.
Overall I would say this is definietly one to buy!!!
