As a Bama fan I'm super excited to see Mark Ingram on the cover, so I'm automatically buying this! Just Pre-Ordered mine & I'm excited to see how they changed up the dynasty mode where you can start out as offensive or defensive coordinator and move your way up to being a head coach... Also the player looks like the dreadlocks gives the players a more authentic look because some players have them today

This game will blow every other CURRENTLY released sports game and will be exciting to play. In depth dynasty mode and fierce multi-player will make this a must buy!
Rated 5 out of 10 by elementalfact0r Positive going forward, but a big step backward...
Ncaa 12 builds on what it had done in 11 and for the most part is good. But the thing that killed it for me is the cpu's pass defense. Now the idea to fix the zone coverage was wonderful, but unfortunately now defensive lineman and linebackers can do a "Michael Jordan" and swipe the ball out of the air for an interception. It happens in reality but "in this game" it happens more times then not, a backup linebacker with 56 AWR can easily become more valuable then the CB's themselves. Running the ball is better then last year, but at certain times you will have to pass, and you cannot trick the cpu. For some reason they simply know what play you called and they know all of the routes down to a tee. Adding some realism is great, but when you play on all American difficulty and struggle with a high powered offense against lower ranked defenses then something is definitely off. This isn't about putting up big #'s, its about tweaks that have greatly increased the cpu's abilities to levels of ridiculousness.
Rated 6 out of 10 by whocares2011 playing against ppl on xboxlive is frustrating
it makes me mad when u play someone and u kno ur better than them and they still beat you! it seems lke theres 4-5 interceptions a game bc the passing is horrible and its very easy to pick it offf, whats the deal with the qb and hb always fumbleing, they need too fix tht bc tht makes me mad also, strip the ball is too easy if u put it on, if u put the cords in hd then it looks awesome, other wise if its normal it kinda looks lke all the same graphics as in all the other games they had, road to glory is a waste of time, u cant play defense and u cant even pick ur plays, it gets kinda boring after the 3rd game, i just hope madden is better but wht do i no all the games all always the same with only stuppid minor improvements, on live there is too many cpu penalities, it gets on my nervs after a while, i think its funny tht ppl dont no how to play defense so they let the cpu play it for them and thts how they get 98 percent of there picks, ppl dont have to agree or dissagree with me all im doin is telling the truth
Rated 10 out of 10 by Ep1c4ss4ss1n Fantastic!
This game is great single-handedly because of Dynasty and Road to Glory. It captures Road to Glory emotion perfectly and you don't get every scholarship that you can possibly get. You have to earn your scholarship through hard play. Dynasty is really fun and challenging if you don't create fantastic players living in the state as your college. Of course I do that, but at the end of every season some superstar transfers. There's another thing about this game. You can plead leaving players to stay unless they are a senior. Road to Glory is my favorite. I'm the backup running back at Ohio State and you have to win position battles to move up. It depends what college you go to, but I started at 4th string, but the first two position battles are really easy , but the one two get to starter is really tough, but the starter one is hard, and rightfully so. I'm sorry I didn't discuss online gameplay, but I'm satisfied with single-player.

I bought this game with very high hopes, as I am a huge fan of the NCAA games, and have every edition. NCAA 11 introduced a new style of playing, which was groundbreaking and tremendously fun. If you have previously purchased NCAA 11, and still have it, and are considering buying NCAA 12, I would honestly save my money, due to all the amazing games coming out this year. If you have never played an NCAA football game, than this game would be highly reccomended by me. Almost everything is the same, with a few new tweeks, like 3D grass, and a new coaching experience in Dynasty Mode, but overall, the gameplay is the same, and it really has the same feel as NCAA 11. This is still a great game, but it doesn't have much improvements since last year's edition. If it's your first NCAA football game, give it a try, but if you have NCAA football 11, continue playing that, because it's almost the same exact game.

I have been playing this franchise since Chris Weinke was on the cover of 2002. It would be nice to see some changes. Adding the 1-AA teams would be cool. They use to have them, why not any more? They also had things like player suspensions. You would get in trouble if you did not discipline players and could lose scholarships for recruiting. Another thing they need to change is some things on RTG. I'll have a RB or WR with a 99 overall of returning kicks/punts but they never step foot on the field to return one. When I import my RTG to Madden, he gets to return. Make RTG more challenging as well. I should not be able to be the starting quarterback for Alabama my freshmen year. The Heisman difficulty needs to be more realistic. What happened to guys with long hair hanging out of their helmets? Some visual aspects like that would make the game look better. I still can't wait for the game.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Person123456789 Awesome Game
NCAA Football 12 is an overall great game. Cons: For some reason, it won't let me play online. (I do have xbox live gold.) I am also disappointed that this game has no minigames or other game modes (besides mascot mashup). Pros: I'm not even really a college football fans and I love it. I am used to playing football games for the wii, and this is so much better. The graphics are incredible, from the lighting to the players, and even the grass. It feels like you are watching the game on TV. The gameplay is awesome. When you tackle someone, they will no longer start falling before you tackle them. Of course, there are times that you are reminded that you are still playing a video game, but overall, the gameplay is great. Road to Glory is very fun, you start out in you senior year in high school, and if you play well enough, you will have a lot colleges you can choose from. Once you are on a college team, you will have to work to become a starter, and then get coach trust so you can call audibles/ hot routes. This game is one of my favorites, and I highly recommend it to hardcore fans and beginners.
Rated 6 out of 10 by SoxRred88 Hopefully Madden Won't Let Us Down
This game as far as graphics and the feel of college football is awesome. Unfortunately I've never been so frustrated with a game in my life. You cannot pass the ball to open receiver without a defender making some kind of impossible running one way reverse the other jump to intercept the ball one handed............that's just the start......the guy I control on defensive for reasons unknown cannot tackle no matter how solid I hit the ball carrier....and after that I have no trouble running the football? Its almost too easy to run the football. I have it for XBOX...it hasn't frozen up on me or anything but it does seem like sometimes it not running correctly. The music and ESPN stuff just cut off completely for like 15 mins and then comes back randomly. I wonder if its any better on PS3...If Not.....You may want to skip this and wait for Madden...and hope its A LOT better

i think EA should make the accesories this year like wearing the jersey tucked in or out and covering or tucked behing the back plate and being able to wear more than just one arm band and placing it were you want. having the pylon fall over when the players hit it and making the tackling in the game alot better like being able to dive or jump and when your hit its not always the same style of tackle but the player will go in the direction he is hit, and if he is just hit and not wrapped up in the air he will spin the direction he is hit. and also in RTG mode like when you get post season awards you get a trophy like real players, well they also get championship rings for confrence championships, and bowl games, and dont forget the national championship like we all know so why not do that for the game since the school gets the trophies not the players.
