I bought it today - I had to. I am one of those who can not live with last year's rosters and uniforms. It is really good, but nearly a carbon-copy of NCAA Football 09.
- I like the Campus Legend mode quite a bit. It has been rebranded "Road to Glory with Erin Andrews", and EA is quite prominent in this mode, as like the studio host for your career. It's the same as 09 - four high school playoff games, pick a school, go through practice until you are first-string and playing. The only thing that I thought was cool was the highlight reel/intro my guy got when he picked Colorado, complete with video clips of his high school playoff games. Other than that, it was completely the same as 09.
- I started a Dynasty with Air Force because I'm waiting to do my annual Washington dynasty until there is a roster file with names out there. I picked Air Force randomly. Other than the presentation and some of the interface, recruiting is exactly the same as far as I can tell. Gameplay is VERY similar except that there is a "gameplan" mode where you can choose "Aggressive", "Balanced", or "Conservative" on offense or defense. Other than that, it also appears to be just like 09.
Based on three hours of game play, the only reasons I would say to run out and buy this without trying it out (IF you have 09 already), are:
- the new presentation is fantastic and looks glorious in HD - the ability to mix and match uniform tops and pants if your school has multiple choices (like, say, Oregon) - and the general improvements that have allegedly been put in, like more realistic freshman compared to 09 (where some guys ran 4.16 40s - supposedly they got rid of that)
I don't think I would be compelled to try and explain why someone inclined to stick with 09 HAS to go out and get 10. Don't get me wrong, it is fantastic and all that, but I think I'll be sticking with MLB '09 until I can get names on the rosters.

And, as far as the European release goes, it's been pretty much a catastrophe from the start. Unreliable servers, ridiculous lag. It got to the point where I had to create a US based PSN account to be guaranteed to get in there.
