Game Description

Electronic Arts has a very long and storied history creating addictive football games, ranging from classics such as the Bill Walsh College Football (Genesis, SNES) to its long-standing Madden series. With that type of pedigree, you'd assume NCAA Football 2014 would be a sure-fire winner. Unfortunately, despite being a fairly decent game, this year's entry into the NCAA Football series simply doesn't deliver as hoped.

The Good, Bad and the Ugly

The new physics engine and gameplay that so characterized Madden NFL 13 have been added to the game. The addition of this Infinity Engine 2 adds a much greater amount of realism to many of the plays on the field (and every tackle or interception looks and feels a ton better). Run and pass blocking AI seems to have improved significantly, and making a swift cut or a timely juke feels smoother than ever, allowing for the overall gameplay experience to bit a more addicting this time around. These refinements, unfortunately, are all things we've seen before, making them all just a bit underwhelming.

The game's graphics look quite dated by today's standards and the announcers call every play with indifferent blandness. At least some effort was put into the game with "new" features such as improved running mechanics via a stamina bar and a larger amount of option plays, which mirrors the rise of the option attack in college football. It still feels as though the series is still treading through the same path it painfully took before; there are no new game modes this time around and it can occasionally feel as though all you are doing is playing through a roster update of last year's game.

The overall presentation that NCAA Football 2014 pulls off is fairly nice, resembling the traditional ESPN broadcast that many of us have grown accustomed to over the past few years. Menus are easy to navigate, and the music is serviceable. The backgrounds of many of the teams could have used a little bit of work (they resemble a rushed Photoshop job). Dynasty Mode and Road to Glory have remained largely the same as last year, with a few minor differences here and there. Overall, if you are looking at a fairly decent football experience as a first-timer or are a football fanatic, NCAA Football 2014 is definitely worth a look. Just don't expect too much of a change from last year.
