NCAA Football 2012
Excited... Johnny thats Inacurate
I havent been this excited for a football game in quite some time. Hey Johnny your statement about the uniforms is incorrect. The pro combat uniforms that you get with the demo are not the same. With the demo you will recieve, Alabama, Florida, Miami, Oklahoma State and the white Boise State uniforms. If you dont believe me see for yourself on Youtube.
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
Are you ready?
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!
LOVE this game! But...
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.
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.
focus on adding to RTG and dynasty
RTG has been the since ncaa 08 add on to it by adding the ability to transfer to another school. i want to wait a year if a good qb is ahead of me and not be the starter after a few practices. make a storyline in a way for RTG and make every decision you make affect you and your schools image and other things. add ncaa div 1 teams to dynasty mode and also as stated in a previous buzz suspensions etc and add bowl bans so i can stop removing USC every time i start a dynasty. and add a halftime show where they talk about what you did and dont just make it show highlights for a minute you have a deal with espn use it. make attendance change i know for a fact UAB dosent sell out every game. dont make it so if im san jose and go undefeated im in the top 15 make me work for it and build up my rep and by the way make conference invites later so i don't get invited to a great conference for example the big ten or the big twelve and get owned for 10+ years. add after game conferences like they did in nba 2k11. let me see my players head when i create him so i can choose his hair and btw let me make him have long hair. and i want to have my player walk around on campus and do stuff or do fun activities not just practice
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.
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.
Good, But Familiar
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.
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
