DEFENSE IS BROKEN. I had three 4th downs converted on me in the same drive because my people ran the wrong way. Lots of glitching, too. I think the graphics are worse than they have been in ages (they are on par with PS2 (for the crowd and stadiums) and the fields are about the same as last year). I was very impressed with the way the offense runs though-- you don't have a set path you have to run anymore and the receivers catch balls easier if you know what you are doing. The problem is if you don't have the one defense EVERYONE seems to be running you can't do anything. And then you get burned because your defense glitches. I'm sorry, but as a long time NCAA fan (going on 10 years now), I'm VERY disappointed. I returned 13 because it wasn't what I'd hoped it would be but this is worse than 13. I miss 12.

This is the same game as last year, the year before and the year before that. When doing road to glory the only player on the field any good is yours. Playing defense is a study in irritation since the camera focuses on the ball, not your player.
Graphically, it is the same as last year, the year before so on so forth. EA isn't even trying to add things, they just claim they are so the not intelligent will buy this years version of last years game. Truly the only difference between any year of NCAA Football is the player names and school standing.
If you love the games already, get this you won't be sorry. Anyone else avoid this like the plague, nothing new, nothing different, no reason to play.
This game is probably the most realistic NCAA Football game I've played.. The controls are great, animations are really life like. Sure the graphics aren't too much of a step forward but that didn't matter to me. The problem with this game though that was a BIG issue for me is that you can never seem to enjoy playing it because it freezes so much. I had times where I would load up my RTG mode go to start a season game and it would freeze while loading the game which means I never got to even play. That is a big game breaker for me and one reason I just gave up trying to play until they fix it.
