I don't really care for this game this year. Its like the creators didn't even put much time into this game. I do a lot of replays and notice the postion of being tackled and where the ball is placed. Thats always messed up. I notice when I push someone out of my way, they fall down and like literally get right back up without the use of there hands. The speed for the running back and that is a joke. I noticed they made it so slow that the defenders can catch up to you when you got them out runned. Its all around not bad of a game but its definitely not a good game.
EA Sports dropped the ball on this one. The gameplay is THE EXACT SAME as NCAA Football '13, except for a few areas where it's worse. There are plenty of problems with throwing the ball, and way too often on a FB Dive play the quarterback will keep the ball for no reason whatsoever(not an option play, trust me) and get tackled for -5 yards. So many less preplay settings(you can't tell your defenders to go for the pick or the tip anymore...that was the absolute key to my pass defense in other ncaa games). Injuries don't reflect reality. There's a complete lack of hustle on no huddle plays, which makes zero sense whatsoever. Holding the right trigger no longer tells your player to sprint. It tells him to quickly accelerate, so if you hold it down, your player gets exhausted after 5 yards and pretty much starts walking. This would be alright if your player actually ran fast without pressing RT. But he doesn't. The worst thing about the gameplay though is the lack of flags. If you want to make a game that really reflects real-life football, you have to make ridiculous penalties and questionable holding calls like real referees do. In this game, you get one flag MAYBE every 3 games or so. Cuz that makes sense, right? And those are just the problems with the in-game play.\nRecruiting is even worse. THERE'S NO PHONE CALLS ANYMORE! Making phone calls and promises to high school players(and subsequently having your players trust you or not) was the absolute coolest things about former NCAA football games. In this game, you just allocate points towards recruits. It's stupid and there's no ability to steal recruits from other schools. You can't schedule activities during the visits anymore either.\nOverall, I give the gameplay itself a 3\/5. It still reflects the beauty of former NCAA football games, but there's many more problems. As far as meeting expectations, it easily gets a 1\/5. It would get a zero if it was possible. This game should have been INCREDIBLE. Instead, it's below mediocre, at best. Super disappointed in EA Sports and the entire NCAA Football franchise. Especially considering this is the last game in the franchise, they should have tried harder to fix bugs. If you are reading this review and thinking about buying this game, DON'T!!! You can buy NCAA Football '13 for half the price and double the quality.
This is an excellent puzzle game with some gut busting humor thrown in for good measure. Haven't had a chance to play the co-op but it looks good. The voice actors were spot on. By the way, walmart has the best price on this game and had it for in store pickup in one day. I was quite pleased.
