NCAA 12 with minor improvements

I'd like to start this review off by saying I am an NCAA fanboy, so take the review with a grain of salt.

The Good:
-Super LBs/DBs are no more. There is no need to worry about 250lb men with 60" verticals and superhuman reaction times.
-The passing game is extremely improved. You can actually lead receivers again and put 3 different speeds on the ball to get just the right touch on a pass.
-Recruiting is... fun?! I didnt think it was possible, but recruiting is actually more than a chore this year and I'd go as far as saying its enjoyable scouting and recruiting players.

The nice:
-ESPN studio updates add a nice feel to the game
-The RTG mode has been improved to focus more on your player, so your WR will no longer have to sit through 10 run plays for every pass.

The bad:
-Run blocking AI is still criminally bad. Youll spend more time yelling at your TV than complimenting the offensive line.
-The freezing issue is back. Contrary to popular belief, one year is apparently not enough time to test a game once before sending it out. It is not an issue of if your game will freeze, but when.

The ugly:
-Nothing, actually. NCAA 13 has managed to dial the game-breaking screw ups from NCAA 12 and turn them into mere annoyances

No noticeable changes from ncaa 12, even the menus are identical. Obviously, the new game mode "Heisman mode" was where most of the innovation went. I admit it was pretty cool taking barry sanders to stanford and playing him in the 2012 season. Unfortunately, the thrill wears off quickly.
The biggest change promised was the removal of psychic DB's. This did not happen. A corner can still look directly away from a receiver and mirror his cuts before he even makes them. It is very frustrating. If you must play a football game, I suggest madden. If it must be ncaa, I suggest ncaa 11 or 12. Or you can invest in NCAA 13, just another copy and paste sports title

I have no idea what you people are talking about.... "They forget Stanford" ??? What??? I dont know about anyone else but Stanford is on my game lol... The overall product is a better faster, more realistic looking football game... I dont understand what people expect when they get this game... Of course its going to look like last years its still college football. What do you want to change?? Do you want them to slow EVERYTHING down and add all the Divison II and III teams??? As far as passing Defense apparently you guys are just terrible with your CB's... If you play with a horrible team dont expect to beable to use your CB's... As far as Ohio winning.. To me its realistic, ya never know any team could win at any time.. You guys are out looking for excuses to be in a bad mood... I'm going to rock out and play 2013 until 2014 comes out... Another great game for EA
