NCAA Demo (360)

NCAA has always looked very bland to me compared to the ESPN/All-Pro series or even Madden.

And it still looks bland.

However, there are a nice number of positives this year, and overall, I'm pretty pleased with what I saw in the demo. Animations are actually better this year, which is huge, and the framerate is absolutely rock solid.

To get to that solid framerate, I think the crowds don't look as good as last year, but I'll take that tradeoff any day.

And while I say NCAA looks bland, I always spent far, far more time with it each year than Madden. The recruiting engine has been so solid for so long--it may well be the single best feature in an EA sports game, at least over the last few years.
