I thought there would be more people posting about this year's NCAA. I wanted to know what you guys think of it so far. I know there has to be more than just a few that have early access.

Do you LIKE or DISLIKE this years game?

Well, I have been playing for several days, so I'll just list some of my pros and cons of it so far.

Pros:


Game feels solid, much better than '11
New and improved animations
Downfield blocking is much improved
Recruiting is better
Heisman Mode is a blast to play



Cons


Conference logos don't change when moving conferences around. (This was a bug in '11 and they still have yet to fix it.)
Motion Blur in instant replays are awful!
Sometimes the lights are not even on when playing night games.
Sacks are wayyy to easy, even on Heisman.



Hopefully some of these bugs/glitches can be patched on the official release day.

Good to know. I'll be playing at 12:01 and I kept checking here to see if anyone had posted comments but it's been pretty quiet so far. I'm really scared of all of those heisman achievements.

Those should be the least of your worries, man. Each of the Heisman achievements can be earned in less than 15-20 minutes...

What you do is simple. Simulate to week 12 or 13 and just play the last few games of the season. If you have the difficulty set to easy and a few sliders turned up, you shouldn't have a problem gaining 600+ yards and 5 touchdowns to get you first in the Heisman race.

.............you just blew my mind! That's certainly a relief, all the more reason to have a guide up quickly so people like me don't spend 20x the time needed :P

No problem, I was wondering the same thing before I even started the game. The Heisman Challenge mode is actually a lot of fun, definitely recommend playing through a season or two without simulating.

Anyways, I have already written a guide up and will hopefully post it sometime on release day. :)

Heisman is a blast! Eddy George is a Fighting Irish! I can't wait to run Sanders as a Buckeye!
Recruiting is a lot better! I feel more attached to the game. Which is good because I Import all draft classes to Madden. This should be an EPIC year for Football!

I am waiting for mine to come in the mail. 10am and I guess I play the waiting game. I can't wait to play this and get through the Heisman as it seemed like fun in the demo.

I just found out. I don't understand WHY?! Every year we could. It is a big part of the two games offline. None the less, I still will move forward. :woop:

This years game is so smooth to me.

The addition of scouting is a huge boost to this years game. I love being able to scout 5 stars and realize that they are not worth a s*** and at the same to find 3 or 4 star gems.

I have found a glitch in the recruiting though. Sometimes it will tell me that I have time left to talk to recruits but I actually have zero left. Simply back out of the recuiting screen and reenter and it will fix itself.

The whole receiver icon thing is good and bad though. I like that your receivers actually have to have awareness to look for the ball as well as the DBs. It makes it more realistic. On the other hand, blitzes work almost supernaturally sometimes now. If a players gets through the line then the icons are not up yet.

I still wanted an OTP though.

not being able to import draft classes is big but other than that it is good.
