EA sports is more concerned with profits than quality. They tack on a new feature and copy and paste the programming from the previous game. The graphics were no better than 3 or 4 years ago. I gave it a 5 because despite those things, its still fun to play. I wish EA would hire real programers and graphic designers, then actually improve on this franchise. Also, i dont care for the recruiting setup. Its not efficient, nor entertaining as it should be.

While I always enjoy both Madden and NCAA Football every year, this year the glitch I am encountering is laughable.
About 20% of the time on pass receiving, my receiver will catch the ball and then just inadvertintly laterals the ball either right after the catch or within 5 yards later. I thought it was me or my playing ability at first, but when I played against my friend, he would have the same problem. At least we both shared the same handicap. lol
Needless to say, it put a new challenge in the game.
I would not recommending purchasing this game (NCAA 14) until this bug gets fixed.
I played the Madden Demo with no problems and look forward to its arrival.
Besides that, a fun game.

I'll keep this short and sweet. This game is pretty much the same game as last year with an added XP mode for dynasty mode, and changes to make the running game much more dynamic. However, I cannot ignore the many crashes, graphic and audio glitches, bad AI, and lack of logic to be found in this. It really feels like EA mailed this version in and will start to focus on the next-gen systems. I had the game crash while loading a new dynasty, RTG is pretty awful and the lack of logic from coaching is just silly at times (why when I'm down 2 points on the opposing team's 20 yard line with 5 seconds left am I being forced to run a HB blast with no way to audible?) defense seems to arm tackle every ball carrier, etc.
It's not worth $60, but it's still not a terrible game of football. Just a very average, sloppy-playing one.
