Summary: Where to begin? OK, before you all "dislike" my review, let me state my NCAA credentials. I have owned almost every iteration of NCAA football from EA sports since 2002. That's ten years of NCAA experience.

Review of NCAA12 from the largest NCAA specific community forum
15 September 2011
Summary: In the wake of Patch #2 for NCAA 12, the moderating staff and community at Utopia (the largest NCAA specific community forum) wish to express our displeasure and frustration in an open letter to EA and the so called "Game Changers" and "Community Sites.
Summary: I have played Madden and NCAA for years, and without question, this is the worst console football game ever made. Want to throw over the middle? Nope, the Linebackers all the way down to Akron have 40" verticals in pads. Want to roll out with the QB and throw or run?
Same as 2011 but with new features that don't work.
9 August 2011
Summary: This game would rate higher if the price tag was $10 or less. The big new feature in 2011 is Custom Playbooks....which don't work due to a bug. The game has been out a month and, as of the date of this review, it is still not fixed.
Summary: NCAA 12 is terrible if you are a simulation football gamer. If you visit gaming sites like operationsports.com , you will see a number of gamers who are angry over this game. The game has so many glitches it is unreal.
Summary: EDIT: Sept12,2011. You can read below if you want, but here's a summary. I will NEVER buy EA again, and I suggest you do the same. I wanted to return this game on July 28th for a full refund, but was told by EA to wait for new patch in August. The patch was released in Sept, but did not help.
