Summary: Love this game. I have gotten it every year. The special features that I received for pre-ordering were great. The price was the same as every other store. I still play this game. The thing that I didn't like so much with this year's version was that it occasionally froze or wouldn't save to the servers.
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.
