While the game is Ok it could have been ALOT better,BIGGEST problem is the Non-Human Jumping Abilities of Defensive players, Sorry but there is not a Human Alive or ever was or ever will be that could Lump as High as the Programmers have them Defensive players Jumping. no way that a Human can jump 10 ft+ in the air I mean where thier Feet are 10 ft in the air and they do it usually from a standing position. Maybe if EA would not get the fantasy games and Games like football mixed up they wouldnt have linebackers that jump at least 19 ft and sometimes alot more because the Human body isnt capable of Jumping that high in the air, except when programmed Into a Sports game
As someone who doesn't really see the point in constantly getting the latest football game every year, I must say NCAA12 is one of those you want to update your collection with. Ncaa12 adds new school unique pregame cutscenes from Florida State's Mascot throwing a spear to UT's petting of the longhorn horns in in the hall. These just help immerse you in the game further and make you feel like you're at a game.
The game looks pretty good- lighting isn't the best in the industry but its still not bad eye candy. Players are still fairly cookie cutter when it comes to making your player.
Gameplay improvements include the moementum based tackling already present in the Madden series, as well as the ability to play iron man football in a full high school season in Road to Glory. Dynasty is largely unchanged from previous games- leaving you to do what really matters- play.
Ultimately, the game is still how NCAA games are expected to be with no drastic changes, but the graphical update, momentum tackling, and new additions in the Road to Glory mode make it worth shelling out the money.
