Early impressions of NCAA 14 are pretty positive so far. I admit I haven't played it in God knows how long...so some of those who've pretty loyally played it year after year have an advantage in the progression of the game.
I really like the control and flexibility of the running game. It's nice to see Man-Bawl be successful - especially against our hated rival!
I also like the "Ask the Coach" feature for play-calls. Makes me feel like I'm in Borges' head during the game...I don't recall this being a feature when last I played. It's been in Madden forever, but not sure about NCAA.
Dislike the names tied to the players though. I understand they can't use REAL names, but I think I prefer OT #77 to the name tied to Lewan (can't recall it off the top of my head). Especially confusing to my 7-year old son who loves Devin Gardner and was like "why is #12 named xxxx?"
Also find it a bit TOO easy in the passing game. Just about every throw seems to hit on target without alot of effort. My kids are effectively winging it all over the place - which is great to keep them interested - but not altogether realistic.
I only played for about 2 hours - but interested in learning other's feedback and features of the game they've found an improvement - or simply just fun to utilize.
***Side Note - had to change my Xbox name from BDOGG6969 to BDOGG1974 since my 10-year old daughter and 7-year old son love the game so far...and they're asking too many questions about my name!***
Speaking of all them questions...
