Kids say (3):

While the presentation is about on par as last year's game, and despite a few graphical and audio glitches, NCAA Football 13 is, overall, a better game than last year -- mainly because of the new gameplay additions. This includes the new Heisman Challenge mode (Robert Griffin III and Barry Sanders grace the cover of the box); offensive and defensive tweaks (including new passing options, icons, and catch animations); the "reaction time" feature that slows down gameplay during key moments adds more drama and opportunities (such as having the time to find more holes at the line of scrimmage); and new school traditions, mascots, cheerleaders, chants, and more. While not a perfect football game, NCAA Football 13 should satiate fans of the sport and league, by bringing some of that college excitement to their television set all year round.
