View Full Version : Better Passing - Xbox or PS2?
07-16-2004, 10:59 AM
I have read that people (esp. on Xbox) were having problems with passing and drops.
Drops are part of the game but people are complaining that receivers are wide open and still dropping balls.
I have the Xbox version and am thinking about returning it for the PS2 version (or if the passing is that bad just returning the game).
So which NCAA 2005 has better passing - XBOX or PS2?
Note: Are the drops happening just on intimidated receivers?
Thanks for your input.

i have played both versions, and drops happen on both of them a lot, i solved this problem by turning up the qb accuracy to a desired amount of notches, since then i have been going 15-20 for about 180-200 yds.

I have both versions and it seems to be about the same.
EA TIburon they for whatever just can't seem to get it quite right. In one version of the game defensive backs get beat like a drum in man coverage and the next version of the game every pass defender has Deion Sanders like coverage skills. If they could only just find that fine line in the middle. EA TIborun's history of doing this suggest that they tend to go from one extreme to the next from year to year. I can guarantee that NCAA 2006 will be an offensive game where receivers are unstoppable and NCAA 2007 will resort back to the unrealistic defensive back play.
One thing that's really annoying to me is the muggings that go on down the field. The defensive backs are pushing, shoving, holding, just generally being too aggressive. Often times this really throws off the timing of your pass routes.

I have the PS2 version (never played on XBox), but my problem wasn't with DROPS...it was with my QB throwing ridicilously inaccurate passes (playing with LSU, Marcus Randall is my starting QB). I bumped QB accuracy up 2-3 notches, now its a little more consistent. I don't have a problem with my recievers droping a few passes I throw across the middle of the field if there is too much heat on them. I HATE having a WIDE OPEN reciever on a streak or post and I over-throw him by 20 yards 4 out of 5 times. Now it happens 1 out of 5 times. I still have to plant and lead my throws (I actually press the analog in the OPPOSITE direction of where I'm throwing the pass so it doesn't get lead TOO far in front of route). I'm really enjoying passing now. Before it was a nusuance.

The more I play, the easier it is to complete passing, and the less drops... But it's really hard on the road at loud stadiums, it seems like I'm always over throwing guys or throwing it too hard for them. I still enjoy this game much more than last year because online play is more fun with the killer defense. I'm confident that Mad Bomber and crew will help us find ways to move the ball. You don't have to fear recievers like Mike Williams as much... If you're getting burned stay in a deep zone and watch as your DB's mug the WR while your opponent throws a lob everytime.
