I'm going to make this short and sweet.

Graphics: There seemed to be a slight graphics upgrade on the players which make them look more realistic and proportionate. However, there were a few nagging bugs. At the coin flip, the face of the players tend to be without detail for a few seconds, then loads it. Still noticed some annoying warping through walls, goalposts, bushes, etc.

Gameplay: The psychic, superhuman linebackers have been fixed, and it's now possible to complete passes over the middle. It still seems a little too offense focused, with defense as an afterthought. Running the ball is still good, but the AI really needs to be fixed. In Road to Glory mode, coaches still call dumb plays (four verticals on 1st and goal from the opponent's 1-yard line, and many more), and runningbacks seem to completely ignore a wide open hole just to run straight into the nearest defender. But the controls are precise, the passing game has been tightened, and some other mechanics have been thrown in to make pre-snap calls a lot easier.

Sound: Same sound and most of the same commentary from NCAA 12. However, the marching bands were almost always off-sync with much overlapping going on. It was so annoying that I started playing with the stadium sounds very low. To me, that's a pretty lazy flaw to not be fixed before release.

Overall, it's just about the same game as NCAA 2012 with a few additions to get rid of some of the previous year's problems. Still, the game feels like it's lacking something as far as being fun. It's a good game, but the formula is starting to wear thin. Not worth $60, but a decent rental.
