Summary: Last year, EA Sports decided to take a some risks, change up a few things and make a pretty darn good college football game. Well, apparently, we liked the experimental title enough that they decided to do something unprecedented: make a sequel! ... Wait, this is a yearly series? And I reviewed it last year, too? Oh. In any case, yes, EA is putting that NCAA license to use once again with a new version of the popular sports game series.
Conclusion: A great installment that any college football fan will enjoy (and has probably put hundreds of hours into already). With a good group of friends for an online dynasty this game won't leave your PS3's disc tray anytime soon.
Excerpt: So many video game fans play Madden, and there’s nothing wrong with that. But what about college football? Arguably, college ball is a more exciting sport. When fans go wild in mutual appreciation of a touchdown play, it’s a roar of human power like nothing else. So does NCAA Football 12 live up to the real-life experience? It comes pretty close, even though there are some issues. The first thing I did when I booted up the game was play Mascot Mash.
Pros: Road to Glory feels very real; Mascot Mash is hilarious; High School Mode!
Cons: Occasional graphics glitches; far too much advertising; needs to feel even more exciting.
Summary: NCAA Football 12 takes the journey of the college athlete to the next level of depth and authenticity. Experience the pride and pageantry of gameday Saturday with all new enhanced in-game presentation, traditions and school specific crowd celebrations. Make an impact on the field as your team takes down your heated rival on the road to the National Championship.

Excerpt: With console generations lasting longer and longer, sports game publishers can no longer count on the graphical leap that used to come every every five years to wow consumers into spending. It should create an atmosphere of substance over style, but the last couple years sports games have struggled to get ahead in either category. EA is hoping NCAA Football 2012 can hit paydirt.
