Very Good

It's an improvement with drawbacks.

The game has a very improved physics system and the play of the game is a lot smoother and funner. But it has drawbacks.

Road to Glory mode is a bit better, you can play through the whole high school season if you want to. You picks schools you have interest in through the playoffs and they'll offer you scholarships if they think you're worth it.
But the drawback is the quarter length. Because EA wants to make the online rankings fair, the quarter lengths can only be 5 minutes, which gives you very limited playing time and takes away from the game.

Dynasty mode is as in depth as it was last year, but you can create a coach, and you can start out as a coordinator, which is cool, but the game doesn't limit you. When you are a coordinator, you can do everything you could do as a head coach, even scout offensive players and change the offensive depth chart. The only thing it limits is that you can only call plays for the side of the ball you are a coordinator for. But other than that, the head coaching ranking system is cool, but other than that, dynasty mode hasn't change too much.

first off i have never really played any of the ncaa im more of a madden fan but this year i decided to rent it until the new madden releases and here is what i thought. first the good. the road to glory is awesome the new tackle system works great and the gameplay is good.now the bad. i bought this game mainly to play a online dynasty with friends and when i went to play you have to have a online pass since i rented it i did not so i had to spend 10$ on a pass the servers crash way to much the game freezes alot i have had mine for about 5 days and it has frozen 5 plus times in order to be commissioner of more than one online dynasty you have to buy a upgrade. it takes over 5 min to sim the week on a online dynasty all in all im glad i didnt buy it

This game is the best NCAA ever. Much deeper modes. Erin Andrews is not in it so that is a bummer....but the gameplay and visuals are better than ever.
