The graphics of NCAA Football 14 for the PS3 are absolutely brilliant, rendering some of college football’s most well-known stadiums and fan bases in a vibrant and realistic style. The game play allows for individuals to immediately pick up the game and pull off a victory against the AI, but the learning curve of the title is so intense that friends will be debating the victor for years to come. While the game itself has a number of modes, I feel that the intuitive menu layout allows players to rapidly get to the game options that they would prefer. The dynasty / online dynasty modes provide considerable replay value, as XP (experience points) have been presented to provide further nuance and fullness to the mode.
The Power Recruiting option is another solid inclusion for NCAA Football 14, providing players with a closer approximation to the behind the scenes working of college football. The range of programs that are present in the title is substantial, with EA Sports working directly with a full complement of 126 schools. The presence of music videos for each of these schools showcases the highlights of the school program, and puts the nuances of each time into a greater light.
Make sure to pick up a copy of NCAA Football 14 from any local video game store or from a wide variety of online retailers. The title is available for around $60 for the Playstation 3 and the Xbox 360. The sheer care taken in uniting the graphics, game play, and raw data from the NCAA makes NCAA Football 14 into a must-have game, perfect for gifting as a birthday gift or for a number of upcoming holidays.
