NCAA Football 11 hit shelves yesterday to mostly positive reviews.

The new features this year are gameplay heavy which hardcore sports gamers or more than casual football fans or fans of the franchise can appreciate. Formation subs are back, the new locomotion system de-emphasizes speed and puts an emphasis on the other attributes players need to be successful running the football and the block has been revamped.

I like it so far. I was actually able to run a draw play successfully two times yesterday which is a new world record from years past.

Does it have 'Create a team'?

How's dynasty mode?

Is recruiting in dynasty mode still year-round?

It has create a team. You create a team online, actually. If you want to mess with it google Teambuilder.

Recruiting is still year round but they did make some changes to it, namely that you talk about what the recruits want rather than vise versa. Online dynasty is where most of the changes have come in as you can now recruit from your computer, post the stories from your games right to facebook or twitter, etc. It's kind of like having a website to manage your dynasty. I'm playing one with my brother right now and I am very impressed with how they implemented this, particularly the online recruiting.

They also drastically improved the run blocking and they did de-emphasize speed in favor of other important characteristics that were unimportant in years past like acceleration, break tackle, etc.

Crap, it sounds like it's really good (and time consuming, as usual).

I may have to purchase it, once I get sick of my franchise modes in MLB the Show and NHL 09, that is...

Crap...

Thanks for the info.
