NCAA Football 13 Sticks With Only The One Playable Camera Angle

Posted April 9th, 2012 at 2:45 pm

A recent EA Sports podcast focusing on NCAA Football 13 has brought news that the series will once again go with having just a single playable camera angle. It’s the latest in a long line of topics that have generated additional negativity towards the upcoming product.

It’s not so much about how much demand there is for additional cameras – there is definitely some but it’s probably not really significant – instead it’s the lack of care shown by the company for those who do desire more in the way of options.

In this case cameras may be representative of something bigger for the NCAA series. Similar to how surprise onside kicks in a way stood for a lack of authenticity and attention to detail in Madden – NCAA having only one camera is indicative of how feedback and requests from the community have continually been overlooked or brushed aside in favor of gimmicks and questionable design decisions with failed implementation of those ideas.
