In sticking with the Xbox version, here are the pros and cons:
-GAMEPLAY GRPAHICS. No more guys walking through each other on the replay or the chain gang getting knocked down every time (became annoying to me). The graphics are improved and guys look real.
-PENALTIES. Excessive celebration penalties are vastly cut down which is a big plus. Running into the kicker every freaking time on a block attempt seems to be cut down as well.
-RECRUITING. Let me say, this is basically the same as last year. Start off the year selecting 15 recruits and divide 100 pts between them however you like. The big add, some recruits want promises. The ones I find the most common are a WR wanting jersey #72 or a HB wanting #91. Something pretty odd ball but if it gets you the 4 star prize, why not? Playing time is tricky. It doesn't mean, play me sometimes. It means, they start every game. If not, they may transfer. You can always go back to the promise screen and see what promises you made and a percentage meter of adherence helps you to know how you fare. If you start a guy sometimes, the adherence level may be 33%. I don't know what level they will transfer but don't redshirt them. That is stupid and something I did. I got greedy and didn't want to waste his year of eligibility because unknowingly I had a bunch of upperclassmen who improved a lot and got an even better recruit offseason. Even if he never played, I'm sure he'd transfered but definitely don't redshirt the dude. When conducting a visit, you can select 5 different pitches to sell to recruits.Read more ›
There are many improvements to the gameplay which make it more enjoyable, such as being able to see which audible you're calling during the game and more options to do during the off-season. The recruiting aspect is also much improved. Also, the more successful you are, the more influence you'll have over your star players leaving early or staying on for another year.
However, unless I am wrong, they have taken out the play mode where you got to play the biggest plays in history; such as doug Flutie's Hail Mary in the last seconds of the game agains Miami.
These were always fun to play.
They've added (atleast since the 2005 edition) an option of creating your own player and getting him through college. You have to do well in the drills and the better you do, the better the school that will offer you a scholarship. Part of being a player is balancing academics, social and practice. The academics are not all that challenging and you can choose from pretty much any subject, including college football. This is interesting but at the end of the day I find myself playing dynasty more than anything else.
The AI is also "smarter" as in previous editions, there was always one or two plays you could call and you were sure to get big yardage every time. Not so in this game, you do have to mix up the play calling and depending on your settings, the AI will shut down your offense.
A good aspect is the "momentum" factor. Sack the QB, run a big play, and the momentum goes in your favor and your team will be playing better. Lose that momentum and you're more likely to fumble or to drop a pass.Read more ›
