    Overall the game offers a robust offering of modes and solid gameplay that will have you playing well into the college season.

    This is the best version of the series since NCAA 06. And even though I think annual releases of sports games are, well, useless with the possibility of just downloading roster updates, this is well worth $60 and can't be missed by NCAA fans.

    The Infinity Engine 2 has taken the NCAA Football gameplay to a new level of realism, and with the improvements to the Dynasty mode, even the lack of depth that Ultimate Team suffers from can't hinder the fact that this is arguably the best title in the franchise series.

    Even with these positives, and a better-late-than-never addition of the Ultimate Team mode, NCAA Football 14 is not a game that shows a series playing at its peak as a console generation ends.

    This year, NCAA’s lack of novelty is more evident. Yeah, it now has Infinity Engine physics — which Madden NFL got last year — and Ultimate Team — which FIFA has had for a while. It does play a better game of college football, however, and that’s important. But ultimately, NCAA Football 14 is like your friend who showed up to the first class of the fall semester with the same haircut, shirt, and summer story to tell. Maybe he lost a few pounds, and you’re happy to see him, but he hasn’t really changed.

    There’s a good football game here, but it’s far from an impressive package.

    It's a shame that NCAA Football '14 has the same problems the franchise has been burdened with for years. The on-field action is tight and rewarding, but everything else is sloppy at best.

The dynasty mode is as good as ever, especially the revamped recruiting. The presentation may not be as good without the intros, but let's be honest how many people actually sit through them after you've seen it a couple of times. Overall this is without a doubt the best NCAA Football game on the 360. Expand

    NCAA Football 14 not only set the bar for football games this year they raised it up 2 notches... This is truly the best football game on thisNCAA Football 14 not only set the bar for football games this year they raised it up 2 notches... This is truly the best football game on this Gen and possibly ever. Ultimate Team coming to NCAA was one of the biggest and boldest decisions that the team at EA SPORTS made, and by far one of the best, and could make a run at big brother Madden in my opinion.
    With Physics in the fold powering the all new running game in NCAA 14 it has never been more fun and exciting to run different offences like the Spread and Option. Truly I'm excited to see what the New Gen holds for the series down the road!

    With all the positive there also comes negative like Road To Glory not getting love this year or seeing OTP come to the series, or full commentary/halftime show is disappointing, but the rest makes the negative not seem as big a deal anymore. Enjoy!!!

    NCAA Football 14 is the biggest jump from its previous year this console generation and that has to be accounted for. Physics is now in theNCAA Football 14 is the biggest jump from its previous year this console generation and that has to be accounted for. Physics is now in the game and fresher than what we saw in Madden 13. Dynasty adds new presentation, a whole new recruiting system which is quicker and each week you don't find your self spending a half hour doing recruiting. Ultimate Team makes its way into NCAA which give you another game mode to enjoy when your waiting for your Online Dynasty to advance, or you want to play with some of your favorite NFL players in their college days.

    All in all, NCAA Football 14 is better than last year, in fact its the biggest year to year jump on the Xbox 360 and PS3. Its more dynamic, its fresh, the atmosphere replicates college Saturdays more than ever, and gives you more options and game modes than before.

    This feels like a college football game.

    A solid but unspectacular football game, with improved, nice physics but the game modes are the same as last year's and boring. The new gameA solid but unspectacular football game, with improved, nice physics but the game modes are the same as last year's and boring. The new game mode is ultimate team where you play as pro players in there college days which is okay, but doesn't feel right or flow. Expand

Its a shame that it took them this long to accomplish that. Positives are the read option, option its self, recruiting, better blocking, physics engine. Negatives are outdated GRAPHICS, tons of missing equipment, still some bugs, very poor pass defense, presentation is awful, horrible commentary. NCAA football has a lot of potential its a shame that EA sports has chosen to put so little in developing a good video game for one of the most popular american sport. Expand

However this game time and again has regressed from previous versions and never fixes existing issues. the RTG mode is so awful now, you can't even choose your plays. It was a good idea, but instead it ends up the coach only calls runs and you're a QB.

    But the greatest offense that it so dumb every year is Notre Dame. In RTG I went back to back 5OT games against them. Why? Because they are always straight 99 ratings. I get it. Notre Dame has lots of fans. Everyone loves them. But come one, they have been good once in the last 15 years. and 5OTs! 60 point games! when was the last major conference game like that? It doesn't happen ever.
