Summary: The game is fun, even for a first time football video game player. As I haven't played much Madden, I can't compare, but at $18, NCAA 13 is completely worth it. The only problem is that at some times during the gameplay, it doesn't go so smooth. For example, when returning a punt, sometimes my player doesn't run up to the target, even when I don't move them.
Summary: My son saw this at Best Buy and wanted to play with ECU so I bought it and the plays are easy enough to pick he has fun with me playing every so often. He plays real sports so this is something to do on rainy days.
Summary: 2nd to last edition of the EA Sports NCAA games. I probably spent 250-500 hours playing this when it came out and the NCAA line will be missed. I love the Dynasty mode and enjoy battling with a new D1A school and try to take them from 1 star to 6 stars in less than a 10 years and I always enjoy the challenge.
