NCAA Football 12 (Sony PlayStation 3, 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.

A must buy! Upgrades in all the right places, realistic and deep!
NCAA Football 12 is the best edition to date. The widely considered "deepest" mode in sports games, NCAA's dynasty mode has been made even deeper this year. Now you can start your dynasty as either an offensive or defensive coordinator, the key is you only control your side of the ball. Then you can fallow the all new coaching carolsel and move up through the coaching ranks. Once you become a head coach you get total control of your whole team. Also new to dynasty mode you can edit any and all conferences to keep to date with all the moving of teams. Also at the beginning of your dynasty you can change the BCS. Want to make the Mountain West a BCS confrence? Or maybe make the Rose Bowl a clash between the WAC and the MAC? Now you can. Also new to the Road To Glory mode now you get to play your entire senior season of high school football. From an 8 to a 12 game regular season and the state playoffs, you can even use team builder to make the actual high school teams from your area. Also now you can play through your senior year ironman style, be a wideout on O and a corner on D. Get rated at both and decide which side of the ball you want to play on in colege. Also not only do you have to earn your starting spot, but you now have to fight to keep it. Young up and comers will try to pass you over by challenging you in practice you'll have to win the competition to keep your spot.<br><br>There are some new parts to the gameplay as well. Now the crowd is more a part of the game as ever. The game now knows the difference between five thousand and a hundred thousand people and so will you. The new tackling engine now allows for multiple player tackles and makes angles a huge part of offense and defense. Take the wrong angle on D and have no chance at making the tackle. Take the right angle on O and be unstoppable. Also new is the zone defences in the game, you can now see defenders pass off receivers, shorten or lengthen there zones depending on the offense.<br><br>All in all this is by far the best football game to date, not to mention the deepest. A must have for any football or college sports fan.Read full review

This is a good game if you want to show of your school pride for your favorite school and maybe if you'd like can go for the gusto to win the Nat'l Champ. of D1A College Pigskin.The graphics are a treat for the eyes,plus the gameplay and the control operations aren't to bad either.

great game with a different aspect to the game
Great game. Very different from every other college football game. I love the coaching aspect with the offensive and defensive coordinators. Surprised that they came up with that part of the game.
