    The passing game needs major improvement.

    Rated on April 12, 2012 by TheMadMarine

    NCAA Football 12 has the potential to be a really great game only for the insane AI pass defense to ruin it. I'm a veteran player of NCAA Football, Madden, and all these football games and I still hav...

    NCAA 12 improves on most parts of the game, but still has some "typical" EA bugs at launch.

    Rated on July 18, 2011 by Uberfinn

    Updates: After playing this game a bit more, I wanted to add a few things. The AI pass defense is absurd. Especially on the harder difficulties, EA really dropped the ball on this one (PUN INTENDE...

    Lockout Madden, Pick Up NCAA Football 2012 Instead.

    Rated on July 17, 2011 by Dualie

    While page after page of possible tweaks with in both the Dynasty and Road to Glory modes might turn some people off to this game, it is the ability to modify the tiny details that fully immerse you i...

    Good, but bad at the same time

    Rated on July 17, 2011 by MarcusTheKidd

    I played the demo and it seemed just like last years game overall, but the graphics looked like sh!t. I mean, blocky and all. It doesn't look like the players and the field are in the same place. They...

    Still waiting for the true, next step in the sports video game genre.

    Rated on July 19, 2011 by GreekLightning4

    I have been a dedicated NCAA/Madden player for over a decade now, and it has gotten to the point where I believe the improvement of these games has become stagnant. NCAA Football 12 is EA Sports l...

    Nice Job EA!

    Rated on July 29, 2011 by dwilson

    EA has improved the game over last year. They have listened to feedback from gamers and added some cool features and nice improvements such as an enhanced presentation of the game and school tradition...

    How come I can't get a great college football game?

    Rated on August 14, 2011 by masterx1059

    I've owned NCAA 12 since the day it came out, but I didn't want to write a review until I had played the game for a while and could really comment on everything with clarity. Unfortunately, thi...

    Rushing is the only thing with an ounce of fun in this disaster.

    Rated on September 09, 2011 by mm_casino

    The passing game is horrid. The cpu pass defense is totally unrealistic. Reminds me of the crap fest that was NCAA with Larry Fitzgerald on the cover. There are no passing windows. Almost impossible t...

    just anythere game made by ea sports

    Rated on September 21, 2011 by andrewerdna100

    it seems like the ncaa and madden series are always a presentation update to make the game look like it was improved, overrated by the critics (of course not gamestop), and always makes you want to bu...
