NCAA FOOTBALL 10 DEMO AVAILABLE TODAY

Fans Awaiting the Release of NCAA Football 10
Create Over 80,000 Custom Teams via TeamBuilder

June 18, 2009 –Electronic Arts is proud to announce that the demo of NCAA Football 10 is available today for Xbox 360 and PS3. Fans who download the free demo will experience all-new gameplay features including:
  • Defensive Keys—Prior to the snap during the pre-play, hold the left trigger while pressing the analog stick in the direction you think will stop the run. If you think the offense will pass the ball, press upward. Or, you can press the icon associated with a receiver (X, Y, A, B, LB, RB) to spotlight that individual. This will focus the defense on making sure that the chosen offensive player does not make a play.
  • Defensive Player Assist—By holding A (on 360) or X (on PS3) on defense your player will be put under CPU control so you have time to read a play and decide the best course of action.
  • Enhanced Defensive Lineman Moves—With new animations, take control of your defensive linemen using the right stick to fight pass blocks and put pressure on the quarterback.
  • Gameplanning—There are six defensive and five offensive individual game planning options, or you can globally set your offense and defense. Each option changes the way your team will perform. For example, be aggressive and try and strip the ball every time and you run the risk of getting more facemask penalties.
  • Player Lock—Player lock allows you to lock on to a specific player in order to control that position during the play. When you lock on you'll get a whole new camera angle that puts you closer to the action.
  • Set Up Plays—Set up plays allows you to run one play in order to set up another. When picking a play, you will notice that some plays have a chain link between them, which indicates that one play can set up the other. Every time you use one particular play throughout the game, you are setting up for the play that is chain linked to it. Once the play is 100% set up (as shown in your playbook), the defense is at its highest likelihood to fall for that play action.
  • 1000 new animations like throw out of a sack, new shotgun snaps/hand-offs, WR/DB interactions, tackles, double team run blocks, catches, broken tackles, and slipping in bad weather.

All I see is a teaser trailer for the bigs game.

Okay I'm just starting. First thing I noticed was strategy right off the bat.

First play, I fumble, Oklahoma scores. Lol.

EDIT: Booth reveiw overturns the fumble.

Played the first half, some quick impressions:

I LOVE the left stick click on defense to get the defensive players perspective. That is a nice touch. On 3rd down, I batted a ball in the air and an offensive player caught it and then got drilled.

I like the presentation elements. The score overlay on the bottom makes it look realistic.

So far, its okay. Obviously only one half so the bad parts are not that evident, but I like the subtle additions I've encountered so far.

It looks like momentum is gone, the bit where you get the crowd going. Unless its just removed for the title game.

to hell with work....I wouldn't be here if the PS3 had the demo up already. If I hear of the demo being released before I get off work for the PS3, you can bet your bottom that I'll be out of here.

thanks for the impressions guys and keep em coming.
 
# 12 mKoz26 @ 06/18/09 08:03 AM
It's too easy to throw deep, and way too easy to throw on the run.
 
# 13 ExtremeGamer @ 06/18/09 08:04 AM
Set up the demo for both games in my queue, had my wife turn on my 360 real quick and then turn it back on to actually start the DL, refereshing xbox.com watching it download. Fun times. LOL
 
# 14 mKoz26 @ 06/18/09 08:08 AM
I'm going to overtime! Whew! 21-21 so far.
 
# 15 mKoz26 @ 06/18/09 08:10 AM
I've found the first glitch of the demo!

In OT, they went for the extra point after a TD. I got called for running into the kicker, they accepted, the penalty caused a KICKOFF! In OT!

First glitch!

Finished the game. Played All American diff. Beat OU 17-14 and OU was pressing at the end of the game and I had to recover the onside to seal it. What I did notice was in the 2nd half (I was up 10-7 at the half) that OU started playing a lot more nickel/dime and they always had a spy on Tebow, whereas in the first half I was able to complete a lot of intermediate passing and run it down their throats. So the AI definitely adjusted to what I was doing.

Refs are in the game, but cutscene only.

It's okay. Very similar in feel to last year, but yet different. It's definitely not as fast as it seems in the videos. Reminded me a lot of Madden 09 in some regards.

The end of the game was wack. It was supposed to be the championship game and Nessler just said "Thats the end of the game, see ya next time" or something to that effect. However, in the beginning he did the typical this is the big one spiel. I hope thats just for the demo.

It was funny seeing the Rose Bowl logo in the Orange Bowl. Yes, I know the Title game is in the Rose this year.

So jealous of you 360ers. Punks!

Thank for the impressions guys. It's early, but I like the seeing that it's polished and has a better "feel". I cannot wait for tonight when it hits the PS Store!

Go Gata!

Oh, and could you tell me the ratings for all of the players in the demo. Especially the #4s on the depth chart. I just had to.

3 smilies FTW.

I'd want NCAA 10. The game is similar to 09 on very first impressions (one full game at 2 min quarters at AA diff), but the new things are tantalizing to me. I want to see how season showdown is implemented and I do like the subtle changes they've made that Ive noticed so far. Player lock is really cool, especially on defense.

I like it, but its not mindblowingly different and if the rosters aren't sorted out properly, I may think differently.

I think a lot of the early hype was overblown based on the demo. It played very well and its a video game, so its not goign to be a perfect sim, even if it could be.

LOL, so what happened next? Did you return the kick? Did your drive start from the 25?
