NCAA Football 13

Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Ya'll know me, I am a pro football kind of guy. I bleed Seahawk true blue. I played high school football, and can find that hole when I am running. I can read the offense while on defense and have a high winning percentage. With all of those accolades I have a confession to make. I have been snoody towards college football for a long time.

College football sim adds Heisman winners to the mix.

Common Sense Media
21 September 2012
  • Summary: Parents need to know that NCAA Football 13 is a college football sports simulation game. Since football is a contact sport, kids will see hard hits and tackles, some up close. The game supports open unmoderated online chatting, which could lead to unwanted conversations. Depending on the age of your child, you might want to disable that option.

NCAA Football 13 is a fun experience that’s still too raw to turn pro (review)

VentureBeat
21 September 2012
  • Conclusion: NCAA Football has always struggled to find its own place on the pigskin pecking order. While EA Sports has continued its quantity-over-quality approach with this latest entry, the title still provides a solid college football experience. If you’ve played previous games in the franchise, you’ll know what to expect — breakdancing mascots, deafening snare drums, and the pageantry only found on a sun-kissed Saturday afternoon.
  • Pros: Don’t feel like controlling the action on the field? Grab a virtual clipboard and coach your team to victory. You can even take your play online with connected features like Online Dynasty or the Team Builder, where you can meticulously re-create your high school or Division III squad for head-to-head battles. This year, the experience features some minor but welcome improvements that add more depth and challenge, such as new difficulty settings, improved play-calling...
  • Cons: This has always been the case with the two franchises. Madden has consistently received new advancements before its overlooked sibling. So, college football fans are stuck playing a 13-named title with 12-based technology. What we do get are a few studio-update segments with host Rece Davis. Where’s a mumbling Lou Holtz when you need him? EA Tiburon has a great opportunity here, and the studio clearly cares about presentation. Last year, it focused on iconic school tr...

  • Excerpt: The next couple of years will be a defining time period for EA’s sports titles. One has to believe that only so much tweaking can be done to the same (albeit great) formula. I fully expect to see some more drastic changes than we’ve become accustomed to in the next 2-3 years. The mantra of sports games for this generation has been played out by now – each year is a similar game engine, and you try to make enough improvements and add enough new features to warrant the new...

  • Excerpt: So even with this current generation of NCAA Football titles in its waning years, I’m happy to report that EA has done more than enough to warrant the new purchase. Not everything in NCAA Football 13 is perfect, but visual improvement, tweaks to the gameplay, and some exciting new ways to play add up to an experience that is worth going through – even if you already own last year’s iteration.

9 August 2012
  • Excerpt: The NCAA Football franchise has always been a shining example of how yearly iterations of sports games works and works well. One of the top reasons why this was the case was its consistency in innovation. But, as you will notice, the past tense was used here.

  • Conclusion: There is no denying that NCAA Football 13 is a small step forward for the franchise, especially in comparison to the past few years. However where NCAA Football 13 continues to succeed is in bringing the action we love on Saturdays to life. If you bought last year’s game there isn’t a huge incentive to go out and pick this one up for full retail price, but if you’re looking to get a fix of college football, NCAA Football 13 is an amazing game of football.

NCAA Football 13 review: Giving it the old college try

blastmagazine.com
12 July 2012
  • Summary: The Blast Factor:  NCAA Football 13 plays a great game of football, but it’s a game you’ve played year and year out. Yes, there are a few new plays thrown in for good measure, but there’s almost no denying that this year’s game is incredibly similar to last year’s..and the year before. Still, if you’re a fan of video game sports and the college football atmosphere, you could do a lot worse than NCAA Football 13.
