Once again, EA takes your money, provides an inferior product

Summary: Much in the way EA Sports ruined Madden going from 2010 (which, for my money, is the best next-gen Madden, 2005 being IMO the pinnacle of that franchise), and because no one else can get the license (SPOILER ALERT: That is going to change soon.
Summary: For those of you who keep buying this game every year a new one comes out, I have one question: Why? Until folks stop buying this game every year, EA is going to keep looking to these sheep to buy their mediocre products.
Summary: I skipped NCAA 2011, but had a blast with 2010, and NCAA is a game you don't need to get every year since EA doesn't really update anything, they have like 2 people work on small updates (one on graphics and one on rosters and AI).
On the surface, it's good. But below, it stinks, sort of.

Summary: I haven't played a ton of the modes in this game. Mainly I have played a good deal of the Road to Glory mode. As the quarterback, I only have the option of playing offense, so I'll leave some feedback here regarding that gaming experience.
Summary: First of all I'm a GIANT NCAA Fan! Secondly, I've bought every NCAA Football game that has been released on PS3. Every year I say that I won't buy next year's game unless they add a lot more stuff and each year I buy it thinking this is the year. I wish I would have skipped this year's game.
Summary: Complete AI control of the game. User skill, once again, thrown out the window. Passing accuracy - controlled and unrealistic. Wide open receivers missed, especially in key moments. Passes led to the AI defender so they can intercept it. Also, why does the QB get "stuck in mud" after the snap?
Summary: Pros and Cons ***************Pros -Coaching Carousel is new to this series, it's far from perfect but adds some longevity to offline dynasty -Custom playbooks...this used to be in series back in the PS2 days, so it's not really new but very useful -Custom conferences, helps to maintain balance of...
Review for avid NCAA 11 users thinking about upgrading
Get Lost, Amazon
13 July 2011
Summary: First off, I'm a huge NCAA 11 fan. I played well over 300 times in online mode. This review will highlight subtle differences between NCAA 11 & 12. If you didn't play NCAA 11, this review won't be that helpful. Playbooks & plays: -Custom playbooks. I spent a good hour or two picking my plays.
Summary: NCAA Football 12 is a step up in a couple areas from NCAA 11 and a step down in quite a few others. I personally feel NCAA 12 is not worth the upgrade over NCAA 11 and quite frankly I would rather have NCAA 11 than NCAA 12. Improvements: *Scrambling QBs actually scramble now!
