Rated 10 out of 10 by FableIIILuvR By far the best one yet
I saw there was a review on here and somebody gave it all 1's. I guess that don't like RG III and Baylor because they more than likely upsetted their school last season or Baylor beat them in the game. Me personally there nothing wrong with this game and this game is one killer game. The graphics are just sick and so is the sound. The fact that you have to earn your wins make it better and more of a challenge because in the other ones I was getting bored facing the computer and beating them at least 44 - 13 and that being on the hardest level. Now with this, winning by a few points is better and means more when you are going up against your rival. The Gameplay is pretty solid and nothing to complain about once you get use to the game and the controls. The sound is good as well. As for the lasting appeal I would have to say a 10 because it rocks. If you are wanting NCAA Football 12 then go get that because this version of NCAA Football is for the big boys.

This years version of NCAA football has great features as far as recruiting players in dynasty being more in depth...and that's where the positive comments can end. In Road to Glory, high school is fun, but unless you're not the starter going into freshman year good luck seeing the field. As a quarterback, the system is statistically impossible to reach the next level, as an interception in practice with plays you're not calling will bring you right back to zero. I never saw the field my freshman year...as contradict to EA advertising earlier playing time for RTG. The throwing controls are great...when they work, which is seldom. I still have qb throw balls well under even when jamming up on the left thumbstick and praying that the game finally throws the ball past the receiver that is five yards in front of cb. I have owned every NCAA game since college football USA 94, and thanks to this version, I may finally put down the sticks. I remember a time when you're downloadable content was part of the game. You suck EA.

For those complaining about the real players names like the other person EA is not allowed to pay the players to put their names. However if you wait and search online on how to get the names. Some person has an 360 and PS3 username that does all the players. He doesnt have some but for those that arent actual players you can just edit those to the real players. I only do it for my LSU Tigers on players they miss, I could care less about the other teams.
One thing I hope they fix is before you used to in Become a Legend(former Hiesman mode) after Senior season had the choice of importing to Madden or becoming a coach. Couldnt do that in 12. Plus couldnt even do the the option of leaving after 3rd season if I even wanted to and for the Legend's score, it had a option for Academic All-American but never let you do anything to try to be one. Also I hate my player being pulled in the 3rd or 2nd when up by a bunch. All NCAA teams run up the scores to help the BCS polls. There is other things that needs to big improvements but other then that 12 was the best there has been.

I would like to see additions made to the game. At main menu being able to trade players between different teams(like pro sports). Dynasty mode- being able to persuade players on other teams to join your team. During recruiting, its prob not possible, but I would like to see real life current recruiting class for that year- prob being able to download the recruiting class from online or something. Tournament Mode- at main menu have a tournament mode, also during seaon/dynasty have an end of yr tournament of top 4 or 8 teams to decide nat'l champ. I like idea of swtiching/adding teams to different conferences. How bout being able to create a brand new conference and persuading teams to join that conference. Also being able to play at pro stadiums or neutral places during season, like college games do. I like the idea of having FBS teams in the game, possibly have it where we can play as one of those teams in the sub-bowl league with the sub-bowl tourny being able to earn enough prestige or something to move up to the FCS and compete with the big teams like colleges (aka Umass) have been able to do recently.

I have been playing EA sporting games for over a decade and never been disappointed ... until now. If you are a fan of NCAA football you will not be disappointed with the gameplay. It's basically the same game as last year, but with a few modifications in the Dynasty Mode (which is always my favorite way to play). In years past I play season after season, saving draft classes to later use in Madden when I play Dynasty Mode there. But all that has changed this year. You can no longer import draft classes to use in Madden. For people like me, who look forward to seeing the same players I used in NCAA Football drafted into Madden this is devastating news. I no longer have any reason to play season after season. I have already won the National Championship (Yes, I play at Heisman level), and have nothing further to look forward to. BIG MISTAKE by EA to leave out this option. I will NOT be buying Madden this year, and will not be buying either game until this option is fixed. For all of you who share my like in drafting classes from NCAA save yourself the disappointment and money, and stay away from NCAA Football 13.

I can't believe how good this game is. It makes NCAA 12 look like a joke! I gave NCAA 12 a 9, but now i should give it a 7 compared to this. The gameplay has its flaws, like normal, but they improved it A TON! Now the DB's don't autopilot to the ball, they actually look backward and have to find it unlike the "magnetic field" in 12. Now I can lob balls up in the air without a constant fear of an interception. Recievers also look backward. The scoreboard is exactly as it is on ESPN, and there are most of the jerseys from last year. Michigan has their retro uniforms, and there are like 5 downloadable jerseys if you play the demo first. The graphics are awesome as usual but for next year they can improve on the players on sideline and fans. The sound is great, sound effects but commentating gets annoying. And if anyone could comment, I am not getting Reese Davis updates?! But anyway my lasting appeal for NCAA 12 was like 0 compared to this! I just got it today and wow. It has just got my attention! Who cares if it is $60? GET IT! and if ur not familiar with ncaa controls but love football, it is obviously a great game to get because it has the button mode as always.

I've been playing the demo for a few days now, and not saying that the game is terrible or not, but I can't decide whether I want it or not if you only give us 3 min. quarters in the demo it may be just me, but you know that a 10 to 12 play drive can nearly take up 2 quarters. It's great that they added some new animations and all, but i'd appreciate opinions from everyone else on their viewpoint. On the other hand, unlike some other games they actually were able to improve both the gameplay and graphics. But I also have a problem with the rosters, either you can have fake names or stuff like WR# 87, etc. If there's a way to get actual rosters and such post a comment. And the only difference in my eyes between NCAAF 12 and this is just the ESPN such and SOME new presentations.
Rated 6 out of 10 by kennyasaw ??????why ncaa??????
yes, the passing is upgraded and they did a very fine job with that, but you can still any game throw 4-5 pics. but between not being allowed to upload roster from ncaa to madden is back breaking. heisman challenge is a poor mans version of madden moments. nothing new at all. road to glory is only fun on offense. either the wide reciever position or quarterback. playing defense on road to glory is horrible. every play is away from you and when the play does come to your side you have 5 people waiting to block you after you get off your first block. this year is pretty sad for ncaa. i would hold back from buying madden just yet. or preordering it.road to glory was usually the main thing for me in this game and defense was were its at until this year. shame shame.......
Rated 8 out of 10 by Smarttypantties44 NCAA FTW
When you read the ratings for this game, they won't be as high because of one major thing: WHERE ARE ANDREW LUCK AND RG3???? Don't take the ratings the wrong way. The game itself is fine, and in my opinion better than any Madden game. The players run faster, the game is more fast paced, and who doesn't love college fans? The menu setup is great, and all the game modes are awesome as always. Also, with the Legend Creator mode, you incorporate High School play as well which is really fun. This being said, you really have to be smart with the football to succeed in this game, which is why I say come prepared to battle when you're playing LSU or BAMA, cause they'll give even the best gamers a run for their money.
Rated 7 out of 10 by foothillfalcons Okay game
The passing game and the read and react defense is amazing ! the new run animations is very good and receiver catching is to. the reaction time is very helpful most of the time to ! the better graphic uniforms and helmets look better. and FINALY after you customize it your way you can actually make the players look like real built football players. now the problems, the game glitches a lot. you would think after ncaa 12 they would fix the corner glitch and some plays they back up till the play ends into the stadium. sometimes the o linemen super glitch out. there is just many many many glitches new and old you would think and now just hope they would fix
