Summary: NCAA Football Video games has come a long way. But the last 3 years has been a rebuilding of sorts for the series. 2010 edition of the series is decent. The graphics are good. The game play is solid. Franchise mode is good. I think EA is really at the peak of creativity with this series. There really is not much more they can do so its time for another developer to take the torch.
Summary: The first thing I did before writing this review was reading every other review posted for the product. I feel the need to dispel a few nagging untruths about the game and talk about my own personal experience as well as the pros and cons of the game itself in order to guide other consumers. First of all - every negative review I read mentioned special teams. Yes. There is definitely a system to ensure that you score a return TD once a game or so.
Summary: I'm not going to write a long review of the game but I will say this: I own NCAAF09 as well and enjoyed it thoroughly (even though that game had major flaws as well). I think the real problem with '10 is the fact that EA decided to spend time improving the most unimportant features. What's more important -- flashes in the crowd or decent AI? Seriously, Heisman mode is infuriating.
Summary: I have been a big fan of the NCAA Football series over the years. This game has a lot of great, fast action and is very entertaining. However, there are some problems. I found that the officiating in this game is worse than usual. I usually get one controversial call per game after review by instant replay and usually it is something that would have helped my momentum.
Summary: Same game different year with improved graphics and improved AI on the defensive side. This year however, THE OFFENSIVE LINE DOESNT NOT BLOCK AT ALL. If you dont believe try running a screen play or a run play to the outside, download the demo and try it out first. The new mode Road to glory is great, but the computer will determine if you win or loose. Season showdown i havent started that yet. Playing online..
Summary: Same game, different year... This particular series of games hasn't really changed in 7 or 8 years, and this years installment is no different. EA has always made the best sports video games but it seems lately that they have been adding more types of game play (i.e. this year's "Campus Challenge") and not improved the game itself.
