I was hoping if one of u guys that received it early could tell me two things...

1. Any uni upgrades since teambuilder opened a couple weeks ago?
2. Did the revo 2-bar face mask make it in the game or any other new helmets, aside from the sleeves and gloves?

Thanks a lot.

@ncaafootball13markus No the facemask nor any other new facemask make it into the game. In the words of an EA producer " Not enough Ram ". Also if you check the forums you will see a video for the answer to both your questions. Only thing we wait for now is the announcement that's supposed to come today about The Uni Store

Very Nice like the graphics and gameplay

Can someone tell me if Williams-Brice Stadium has been updated? It should have a huge HD Videoboard now rather than the tiny little thing it used to have.

Why are FSU's facemasks gray?????? Isn't Ben Haumiller an FSU grad ????? ...... Game play is smooth, but it does take away from the experience when you see something so blatant like that....

It's been good so far, some small glitches, sent a WR that was on the LOS in motion and he just ran through my line, had a tackle where helmets made contact first but the ball runner reacted as if he had gotten hit in the legs? Lol, other than that it's been fluid, no more running into lineman!

Overall, based on the fact that it's not a "full version" of the game yet, and assuming patches are inbound day 1, I'd give it a solid A- taking into account all the upgrades from last year as well.

Excellent! The new physics engine is what I was waiting for and it delivered IMO

I am really enjoying this year's iteration. Only glitch I've seen so far is more of a blown call by the refs. My CB made an incredible side line INT and tapped 1 foot down before going out of bounds. Initially it was ruled incomplete on the field. The booth then initiated a replay and the referee says "The ruling on the field has been reversed" and I was like YEEEESSSS!!!! That is until I realize they ruled a completed catch for the offense ..... 1st down. Had the game been close, I would have probably been devastated, but since I was already leading Tennessee by 21 points I looked at it as comedic relief. I guess that could really happen right .... Anyone remember the MNF Fail Mary? And I am a huge Seahawks fan .....

That same thing happened to me on the Demo.

I haven't played yet, yet I was able to observe someone else play. The gameplay seemed a lot smoother. As always, the graphics seem to evolve. With the game's new given features, it's sure to add even more excitement to the game.

Only a game and a half so far, but thumbs up. Thumbs way up.

I've never been a fan of NCAA, always a Madden player. I didn't much care for this year's either.

The audio really bothers me. I haven't owned an NCAA since 11, yet the commentary feels like it's from that version. The repetitive "band music clips" were driving me nuts. I'm not American so I can't say I know what' authentic or not, I just feel like there should be more variety to it. I can't imagine the same few small things is all they play.

The CPU game management was worse than Madden in the few games I played, which is pretty bad because Madden is brutal in that area. I had a tie game, converted a 1st down inside their 5 with 2 minutes to go. CPU let me grind the clock to 1 second and kick a FG to win without using any of it's 3 timeouts....like, really?

Certain coverages, Cover 2 stood out, were pretty bad. Crossing routes were fairly strong from what I saw.

I dunno, NCAA is a game that requires you to play the CPU whether it's online or offline dynasty, I just can't do it. CPU is just too stupid that it ruins any immersion.


Not even going to touch it again the rest of the early weekend I don't think.

Do not play online ranked matches something is wrong with the servers the game speed drops significantly an plays can not be completed an the defense does not line up correctly if their opponent is running no huddle

In general...it is improved and it is nice that the Tiburon/EAS team are leaving this current gen in a positive direction for good ole NCAA.

There really is a lot to like in ths game. But sadly, all of that good, can be pretty much washed away by some of the bad...some of which isn't new.

Probably the worst audio soundtrack in at least a decade. Simultaneous animations. Game freezes. Fresh but clunky and mediocre presentation.

It's these kinds of things that drag down that positivity sadly.

Thumbs up. The option is 50x better than it was in 2013.

But it is disappointing that the safeties still have issues.

The jury should ALWAYS be out for at least a week or two after average gamers have had the game. If this is like any other version of NCAA Football, a bunch of bugs will be discovered by regular folks in the first day or two, bugs that escaped EA's testers. Then we'll wait for a patch, putting off our dynasties until it's released. Same cycle every year.

While I enjoy reading the reviews of people who are allowed to see the game early, I give more credence to a review by someone who plunked down their own $60 for the game and doesn't have to worry about being granted early access by EA in the future.
