This is a improvement from previous years. The collision detection is not great. Players run through one another as well as referees. The Gameplay itself is much better and action packed. Its something to get excited for but one again is heavily tamed down.
Where one would have thought video highlights of pre-game coverage would be are missing but kind of insinuated. Online game-play comes at a charge and their yet to produce an online dynasty format that is gives any basis. I think a fantasy style format with leagues would be good. Instead they make you pay $2.99 to make sure you don't have to wait for the "commissioner" to let you advance week by week.
The moves in the game could be better and it still lacks the BCS polling feel to the game. You even have to manually cancel simulating each week in order to get back to "play game."
Small things throughout the game will bother a player but overall it is an excellent improvement.
I have to mention the demo showed a lot more sideline play, including acrobats, off field antics, and overall excitement that when playing during the season feels like a bit dull and simulated. Its a continuous balance between game-play and overall production that kills either end of the EA lineup.
the difference between the ncaa football series compared to madden was never the game play in my opinion. it was always the presentation. it looks and feels like a live game..and with the scoreboard updates on ncaa 2013 , it's like i'm watching the game on espn.
ncaa 2013 as well as mlb the show are the standard for what sports game should look and feel like. hopefully madden 2013 (with the new additions will be on that level) and from what i'm seeing, it has a great chance to.
