This game looks amazing. The 3-D grass adds so much realism, and the running + tackling animations look much improved. Road to Glory looks better with your entire high school senior year available. Last year was a big step forward, and I think this year will be too.

Rated 9 out of 10 by jsl03 Does EA improve from last year's game?
NCAA Football 12 is a spectacular football gaming experience. From the dynasty to the teambuilder to the mascot mash up to the road to glory, it is wonderful. The dynasty mode now has custom conferences, schedules, and bowl tie-ins. The gameplay's main new feature is the true tackling system. It is very realistic. The cons of the game include EA Sports eliminating Lee Corso as a commentator the game sometimes freezing for about 10 seconds at random intervals, and guys who don't play for division 1 schools anymore (terrelle pryor, janoris jenkins, and caleb king) are still in the game. Also it is illegal for college athletes to have their real names in the game due to NCAA policy. However, if you are a PSN member, you can download the actual rosters for free (without jenkins, pryor, and king). I somewhat miss pressing the button to do a celebration for a touchdown, but that's not so bad. Overall the game is wonderful. It is extremely fun to play and is great for the college football fans out there.
Rated 1 out of 10 by Collegefootbalfan NCAA 12 is a joke!!
The game of the year, HA HA! This game is a a joke. First the passing is messed up, you press the bottom to WR you want to throw and the game freezes and allows the D to react. When you are on D and call a blitz the Deffender falls down just before getting to QB. The computer blitzes and your o-line is thrown to the ground, and the D gets to you. There is no roughing the passer calls or anything. Also, after playing this the sliders don't do a thing, you can slide pass rush to 85 and it doesn't do a thing. Save your money this game is very poor. The computer finds ways to cheat by delaying your action so it can be faster, or if you are on D it will make deffener fall so it can get yards. Watch out if the CP is the favored team, the CP than will make sure your team gets injuries to key players and forget about playing D because it won't matter the CP always has an open man. Lastly, CP hits you and your down, you hit the CP and the player bounces off and keeps going. Like I said this game is a waste of money. This game should be pulled and not sold!!

I downloaded the demo, and the game looks mind blowing. The added all new features into the game to make it better then last years and all the ones before. Some of these features include: In dynasty mode you can change conferences, and make your own conference and also change what conference plays for what bowl game. So a team in the MAC could win the National Championship, if you wanted. In the road to glory mode, you can play a whole year if you want as your high school team building up your ranking, and can also place as a O and D player which is a lot like what happens in HS football. Another new aspect to the game is the ability to change the entrance for any team, such as the music that is played. The game play itself is almost the same. The coolest new aspect is tackling looks more real. For example you can wraparound a players legs to bring him down. All in all I am pumped to get this game when it comes out.
Rated 4 out of 10 by kangadr0 dont buy into the hype
i dont know why all of these kids love this game so much, it took a step back from the previous year. yes i will admit it looks better than any football game out but were it really lacks is the gameplay. there is no controll over the defense, you go up to make the interception the guy just throws his arms up and not even make a play on the ball at all. there are multipe times were you will have the running back perfectly lined up in the back field and completely wiff on him. on offense literraly just put all of your players on go routes and toss it up to any one of them it does matter. the defenseive back will completely loose track of the ball and just allow the reception. if you are contimplating about buying this game, dont unless you just buy it like me for the road to glory and the roster so i can build my franchise on madden. overall not a great game but looks very very good.
Rated 8 out of 10 by kesp82 NCAA 12 IS SIMILAR TO NCAA 11
NCAA 12 is so similar to NCAA 11 if your looking for a drastic upgrade you might want to stick with 11 but it has changed a little! like upgraded dynasty mode has new coach edit and create with task options also you are able to start out as a offense or defense coach and work your way up to head coach which is nice.create and edit coach has been around since the older consoles though!Road to glory has been tuned better than previous years.Presentation has received some attention as well. Commentary is old like 2002 old except no Lee Corso,Game play is about the same except defense cover the flats better all in all NCAA 12 is a good game to play some good tweaks help it out but some issues are ignored just hope they fix the commentary add some excitement for next go around use espn license to the fullest add studio reports.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Legitgamer Awesome game and great graphics!
I really like how they changes road to glory for now when I am at the HS level I actually play the season as a senior! You can also be an ironman player and never come off the field! The Dynasty was pretty much the same as last year's but it is still really fun to play. The one and only downfall is the dang linebackers. They always will drop into a zone and when you use your slants play, they will always knock it down. And also You can pass a ball 10-15 yards a way from the defender and they some how will knock it down. The computer uses a zone defense, at least for me, all the time so it makes it hard to pass.It does however make it easy for a scrambling quarterback as you can get 10-15 yards easy. Other than that it was an amazing game and I will always buy the new ones again! Amazing 60 bucks I've spent before.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Turnipgang Not sure what others are saying, this is awesome!!
Forget these reviews that are lower than a 9, this game is the best one yet. Its not going to FEEL, not fill, like your watching a REAL LIVE HUMAN PLAYED game on Saturday's, its a VIDEO GAME!! Theres no more getting tackled if your running next to a lineman that is being blocked, no more easy deep bombs (glad that is gone) you actually have to work at it which IS the true FEEL of the game!! You have to get off of your blocks to make tackles, you have to have a good line to run up the gut successfully, I love how in Dynasty mode now if you create a coach you have to meet requirements to improve your prestige and coach loyalty, it makes it harder to recruit. No more diving 10 yards and making a tackle, everything really does FEEL like a real game now compared to the other versions. THIS GAME ROCKS PERIOD!!
