I've been playing NCAA Football since 2005, and this is easily the worst rendition I've played. Road to Glory is entirely unplayable for many reasons, the most glaring of which is the playcalling. A brain dead hamster could call a more logical gameplan than the AI behind this game. Goal line defense frequently audibles automatically (and irreversibly) to a loose zone instead of the called blitz, offense within the last 1:30 of the first half is always Four Verticals, and I lost count of how many time I gave the offense the ball inside the 20 and they failed to even get a fieldgoal.
On top of that, you can't hardly play receiver because the quarterback is incapable of throwing the ball with any arc whatsoever, so every fourth throw is intercepted by a player fifteen yards behind you. I managed to make it work by catching short passes constantly, but that gets obnoxious.
Defense is nearly impossible because the rest of your team will invariably suck. Even when I got the rare chance to make a play, my player wouldn't even attempt to jump for the ball even when I was in focus mode (or whatever it's called). It's ridiculous how frustrating it is to be in perfect position for an interception and then give up a touchdown because the game wouldn't respond to my input.
Honestly, the programmers just made a bad game this year. The AI is the worst I've ever seen in a football game. The physics are great, sure, but I'd like to feel like I'm involved in a competent game of football. I'm more impressed with Notre Dame's performance in last year's Championship than I am with this game.
