Well the college football season has finally come to an end for the 2012 season and the Alabama Crimson Tide have taken home the College Football National Championship and the Coaches Trophy for the third time in four years. Some would say Alabama has started a dynasty in college football. To be an Alabama fan at this current time, you would have to be excited for the way the Crimson Tide has performed.
However, some fans of college football might not be the biggest fan of the Alabama Crimson Tide. So what a better way of changing the history books then putting in this year’s edition of Electronic Arts NCAA Football 2013 and defeating the Crimson Tide. You can take control of your favorite team and lead them to the National Title, who knows you might end up playing Alabama. NCAA Football 2013 has made a number of changes from the 2012 version of this game.
With the addition to new catches in the game, some 430 new ways players will catch the ball. There are other improvements besides just the way a player catches the ball. One area of improvement is with the quarterback drop back feature. This feature will limit the available receivers you have depending on how far back you take your QB. Along with the drop backs for the QB, there are also more pass trajectory zones this year (25 in 2013) compared to just one zone in 2012. Your QB also has more ways to avoid the rush with 8 new avoidance moves while in the pocket. So besides just the QB, what else is new in 2013?
Well the receivers get a new look and awareness with different animations when passes are thrown to them. Sometimes if a receiver is not looking for the ball, his passing icon will be grayed out and unavailable to be thrown to at the time. The only change I see on the defensive side of the ball is that the defense can no longer swat at the ball blindly, they actually have to see it.
Well trust me, there is quite a bit more! With past titles over the years, you could easily run up the score on your opponent and dominate. Not so much this year, players actually have to be able to run a more conservative approach to their game, especially with a lower quality team.
Another feature that comes along in NCAA Football 2013 is the chance to have a former Heisman Trophy winner play for your team. The likeness of Barry Sanders, Robert Griffin III, Doug Flutie, Desmond Howard, the list goes on and on can play for your team. Don’t forget though that there is still the online multiplayer where you can play your buddy on the other side of the country or world and dominate him with your defense. Plus you can always throw in some trash talking as well to each other, of course all in good fun.
So with these changes that Electronic Arts has done to the game, do you think you can take your team to the BCS National Championship game? Maybe you can rebuild a team that is not the greatest and take them to the top. Sit back and enjoy EA’s NCAA Football 2013!
