Pros Ok graphics, realistic weather scenes
Cons To many glitches, to many replays, repetitive commentary, limited menus and play options. Cant stand the different option play menu etc etc etc
Summary Will never recommend this game. Complete trash! EA Sports.....do you test your games before production?! Obviously not! I had better fun playing NFL Blitz than this crap. This game is full of glitches, freezes my Xbox, and me and numerous others think that you have completely bombed on this game. Thank GOD i reserved Madden 12.....im taking this crap back and throwing on the counter
Pros - The animations and A.I. are a helluva a lot smoother than last year's venture. No more suction or warp tackles.
- Intelligent blokcing A.I., and a brand new Zone defense A.I. that is realistic and for once effective.
- Improved features across all mod
Cons - No new gameplay modes
- Commentary has no color, gets old quick
- Noticeably slow loading times even after installing the game to the hard drive.
Summary Overall, NCAA 12 is a major improvement over last year's. Fans and even football purists will appreciate the attention to detail of the actual gameplay and even the audio of the staduim environment. The dev team seemed to actually listens to the fans about their gripes and have fixed a huge majority of any plays or animations that plagued the quality of gameplay. Note to CNET editor that reviewed the game: The squiggly lines on "random" plays only occur when your are playing against a team on the road whose crowd has become rowdy, lol! The higher the "Toughest Stadium Ranking" the harder is it to view your pre-play scheme. This was implemented a few years back to emulate how a crowd can disorient the offense and make it harder to change a play or call an audible. Next time in that situation, try calling a hot route to your reciever and watch how he leans into the QB as he strains to hear! Overall the game is crisper and cleaner and than last year, and has modes for newbies and experts alike. Now I can get my Saturday fix any day of the week!

Summary You do realize that "bug" that turns the receiver routes into squiggly lines are that way purposely? It happens when the crowd gets loud at CPU home games. Making it harder for the user to know which route is being ran.
