Which one to play?? (finally able to get PS2 emulator playing well)

I am a coach mode player (who actually likes to watch a bunch of AI vs AI games too besides my team) - so REALISTIC STATS are very important to me.

...been playing NCAA '04 through dolphin emulator (and it is clearly better than '05 (but those were the only real choices on GameCube) - now that I can run decently the PS2 versions (opening the door to any NCAA to '11), which one is the best for a coach mode player such as me?

I know the big 3 or 4 that seem to be mentioned are '06, '04, '09 (and maybe 07 or '11) - with I think '06 seeming to be the top contender. Should I drop '04 and move on to another edition now that I can? Which is better than '04 and why? What do you guys recommend?

Thanks for feedback

02, 03, and 04 all have conference schedules that don’t rotate. So if Texas plays Nebraska, KU, and Mizzou they will play those teams every year instead of rotating after two years to KSU, Colorado, and ISU. Same with the SEC and MAC.

05 has a ton of dropped passes, I’m not sure if that affects simulations. 06 is damn near perfect.

07 is great but has the same exact 1-AA roster as 06.

07-11 also has a glitch where the stadiums are full at the beginning of every game even if a horrible team averages 5k in a 28k stadium.

08-11 have medical redshirts.

I think it’s 10 and 11 where every player on all the 1-AA teams start with kicker helmets.

11 has a ton of uniform glitches. When I say glitch, I don’t mean an old uniform, I mean there are conferences patches on top of apparel brand patches, they look hideous. UCLA also has brown pants with a wacky stripe on them for some reason. It seems the art department phoned it in.

They are all great to play. Pick your poison!

NCAA 11.
I never noticed the minor uniform glitches, and stadium sizes that that Esayem mentions.
The difference between the major programs and smaller schools is that about half your games will not have play by play commentary, unless you are playing a rivalry game or a top 25 program. which is nice.
On the field, you will be amazed by the gameplay. of course you will need minor gameplay slider tweaks,(mine are minimal). but you wont have to touch things like the penalty sliders. there's a good balance of penalties called. you will see, un-sportsman like penalties, holding, roughing the kicker, and yes defensive pass interference. and the penalties are not phantom penalties. the games where the pass interference gets called, I actually see it.

there is no robo qb in this game also. passes fall short or are over thrown. you'll see proper ball reaction/physics based on the type of throws, pressure etc.

knowing your roster is also important. things like who you have fielding punts and kick offs will determine whether you fumble or not, same for running backs.

all the in game adjustments found in Madden's later releases are in this game as well.

there is game prep as well.

player violations and suspensions, teams are put on probation, teams are kicked out of conferences for poor play, you of course can get fired.

you want to see what RPM should look and feel like, play NCAA11. the players feel grounded and have proper weight. quick players are quick.

I can go on and on about NCAA 11. its the most slept on version and is equal to NCAA 14.

there is also a broadcast camera.

the negatives:
QBR stats are not correct.. they are high for very team, the equation they used was incorrect. they are high but falls in line with the rest of your dynasty
QB sacks are high- so I had to adjust the pass protection sliders
INT's and fumbles are high- also had to lower them
this may not effect your legacy since you play coach mode.

I had picked up 08 a few weeks back and was enjoying it. Started a thread talking about it and many said that it was their least favorite. Majority was 06 or 11. Found 06 last week and I gotta say I enjoy the simplicity of it. Using playmakers sliders to whatever difficulty you feel comfortable with makes it a tremendously enjoyable experience. The impact players truly stand out. Kick arches are pretty realistic in it. Players go for the ball and donít make any real noticeable dumb choices. All in I have to say I fell in love with ncaa on the ps2 all over again. Brought me back to my younger days of actually enjoying and not having to handcuff myself for an enjoyable experience. Havenít tried 11 yet so canít say much. But 06 and 08 were pretty good in their own way for what they have to offer.

Itís not the stadium sizes, itís the fact that an 0-6 1 Star team will fill their 28k stadium at the beginning of every game, even when it shows their average attendance at 5k. NCAA 06 was the last game to accurately portray attendance.

I played a game on 11 recently, TCU vs SMU, and both teams had glitchy patches on their uniforms. Like Nike was superimposed over CUSA for example.

UCLAís uniforms are totally glitched out.

06 was the last one to get the full attention of EA before the next gen came out. I feel thatís why it has stood the test time against other iterations.

NCAA 06. That's why I focus all my editing on that game. It's the best.

Best gameplay. Best soundtrack. Best presentation.

The one thing I wish it had that the newer PS2 ones had was medical redshirting. But that doesnt happen too often anyway. Everything else about it is great.

It looks really good on PCSX2 as well. Really good.
