NCAA Football 12 (Microsoft Xbox 360, 2011)
About this product
|The only college football video game in the country returns to the high-def gridiron for the 2011-12 season. The goal of NCAA Football 12 is to present onscreen action that plays with on-field authenticity, and that looks like a Saturday afternoon broadcast in the heart of the season. Topping the list of the "2012" game's technical advancements is a new tackling system, which relies on momentum for realistic hits and take-downs. Dozens of real-world teams are available for play, including many hometown favorites and all of the Game-of-the-Week contenders, re-created with actual team names, uniform options, and playbooks. As in earlier editions of the annual offering, gamers can create custom players to add to their favorite team, or to guide through an entire collegiate career.|
Gamers may also choose to draft and field the game's pre-designed fictional players, focusing instead on building a dynasty for their favorite team. Top schools enjoy traditional gameday celebrations as their squads take the home turf, including the University of Oklahoma's "Sooner Schooner" covered wagon and Georgia Tech's "Ramblin' Wreck" old-time automobile. Highlighting the game's graphical improvements, a new "high dynamic range" rendering process produces more realistic lighting effects. The process better accounts for the eye's natural adjustment to different levels of brightness, especially when playing in an afternoon field, half-covered by shadow, or in an artificially lit night game. Additional presentational upgrades include 3D-rendered grass on the field, higher-resolution crowds, new Nike-brand uniform options, and additional player-customization choices.

Much better than '11, rent it at least to see for yourself.
Rented this game several times before I bought it here on Ebay. Love NCAA Football for real and this game is pretty close to the real deal. We have to be realistic, getting games to be as real as possible is hard but this game is dang near close. The new upgrades to stadiums, grass/turf, players, the integrated ESPN presentation makes it really feel like I'm watching a game on ESPN. The specialized team intros are a great upgrade seeing how teams actually come out to the field adds to the "real-life experience".<br><br>The upgrades to defense to me have shown. LB's & Secondary playing zone and picking up crossing routes and men have been really good in my experience. Throwing deep cross routes or into zones has been a bit more of a challenge this year then in the past (and I've played every year of NCAA Football).<br><br>Another thing I LOVE about this year is being able to add and move teams in conferences. With all that has been going on off and on this season makes it awesome to be realistic to conference realignment. Its not just swapping teams like last year. Its about adding (not swapping)teams to whatever conference you like. Also being able to change for example EAST or WEST or LEADERS or LEGENDS you can change it to what you like. ALSO you can include or exclude bowl tie-ins. It's awesome for me and no offense to BIG EAST, but I can cut you out of a BCS bowl game.<br><br>IF you like going the coaching route/dynasty, coaching carousel is a BLAST. Pick being an Offensive Coordinator or Defensive Coordinator and choose which school you want to coach at (controlling the O or D). You have certain goals to meet which increases your changes of staying, being fired or being offered a job elsewhere of course being on one side of the ball Offense or Defense your going to be getting calls about being that Coordinator not being an OC getting offered a DC (at least in my experience). You will get offered Head Coaching positions, makes sense.<br><br>If you get this I recommend going to OperationSports.com (if I'm allowed to mention that) and look for getting NAMED PLAYERS and COACHES. All you do is upload a roster from someones gamertag and BAM you have player and coaches names. You can upload numerous files not just one so you can pick and choose whose you like although read the posts so you most likely know what your getting.<br><br>If your thinking about skipping out on this year because that's your style of skipping every other year, it won't hurt to rent it. I think you'll like this better than '11.Read full review

Anyone who loves football will love it
I bought this for my son for his birthday. He was wanting it because it had Alabama on it and we're a bama family. I have not played it but I have watched him play. The first time I saw him play it I thought he was watching a real football game. It is very realistic and lifelike. It makes you feel like you're really there with the sounds and the way it looks. He loves it.
