NCAA Football 14 promises presentation overhaul

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Even the guys who made NCAA Football 13 think it felt tired and worn out. They say the new game will be revamped in a variety of ways to make it flow better, providing for a better overall game experience.

The product team for NCAA Football 14 promises a new experience that varies from the "stale" presentation and long delays on menus and in-game action, as they say they've revamped many of the packages and sequences that grow tiresome as gameplay goes along.

Let's say you had a problem with NCAA Football 13 that wasn't the gameplay itself, which EA Sports says they're also revamping. Like slow menus, or the random cuts to mascots dancing in the middle of gameplay. Well, EA Tiburon told Polygon that they're working on the presentation aspects of the game to improve its overall feel:

"That's a message that we heard loud and clear," said Ben Haumiller, a producer on NCAA Football 14, in a phone interview with Polygon last month. "There were signs of age, definitely."

Changes include new, less clunky graphics that will keep the game from performing slowly, shorter pre-game packages and hundreds of new vignettes instead of a tired few that you see 40 times by the time you're done playing the game. The game will also feature a halftime show with Rece Davis and David Pollack, which college football fans will certainly appreciate.
