NCAA Football 10 - PS3 - Preview
The latest title in EA Sports’ popular college football franchise, NCAA Football 10 is getting ready to launch next month. EA was on hand with the latest build of the title at this year’s E3 to showcase what this year will offer to the storied football franchise. This entry of NCAA Football will offer up some pretty nice changes to the on-field gameplay, and should allow both casual players and hardcore fans to get the most out of the game experience.
The player lock feature was on display for the game, effectively allowing players to single out one player on the opposing team, either offensively or defensively, and focus all of your efforts onto them. As you use this feature, the camera will shift, allowing you to really focus in on the other player. This allows for a lot more strategy and concerted efforts to be placed onto a single block or tackle, letting skilled players dominate in this regard.
Another new feature added is the defensive assist element. This feature allows you to let the AI take control of your player, and has them perform the correct motions of the play that you’ve assigned them. This is a good way for skilled players to ensure that their plays will be carried out in the best way possible, and allows you to finely tune the elements of the play.
On the aesthetic front, the game boasts a lot of great new animations to make the experience feel a lot more realistic. Bodies crumple under hits and jukes and tackles look fluid and dynamic.
NCAA Football 10 is shaping up to be a nice iteration of the franchise, offering some subtle changes that help redefine the gameplay experience and offer nice additions to the on-field formula. Look for it this July 14.
