The time has finally arrived! EA Sports NCAA Football 13 was released in stores on July 10th. My husband and son anxiously awaited the release by playing NCAA Football 12 and counting down the days until they could get their hands on NCAA Football 13.
This weekend we headed to Walmart to pick it up. We couldn’t help but notice all of the eye-catching NCAA Football 13 signage all over the video game section. It only made my son want to play it even more!
There was a NCAA Football 13 demo station set up for PS3. It looked awesome, but unfortunately we couldn’t get the game to play. You can read more about our trip to Walmart and see more photos in my Google+ Album.
NCAA Football 13 has not let us down. The improved graphics and added features have made the game even more exciting to play. My son was most excited about being able to add a Heisman trophy winner to his roster. It took him awhile to set up and customize his team, but he has been having fun playing ever since!
In case you missed my last post, here are the exclusive new features of NCAA13:
Heisman Challenge — Win it for your school as you play as one of 10 former Heisman Trophy winners under center, in the backfield, or split wide, see if you can utilize his legendary skills for your favorite college team in a quest to match his award-winning historical performances and win the Heisman Trophy once again. Choose from the following former Heisman greats:
· Robert Griffin III
· Doug Flutie
· Herschel Walker
· Marcus Allen
· Charlie Ward
· Barry Sanders
· Desmond Howard
· Eddie George
· Carson Palmer
· Andre Ware
An All-New Passing Game — A revolutionary passing system brings added authenticity to the Quarterback position from ball trajectory to play action pass to the option. Enhanced receiver control puts you in position to make a play on the ball and new read and react defensive coverage delivers greater realism on the gridiron.
Reaction Time — Great players see and feel the game differently. With Reaction Time, the game slows down during key moments, increasing your on-field awareness and opening up more opportunities as you sense things before they happen.
Dynamic Dynasty — Recruiting goes deeper than ever with the addition of dynamic recruiting pitches. For the first time ever, your recruiting grades can change each week based on your performance in Dynasty mode. In addition, Gameday Saturdays come to life with live studio updates and enhanced commentary by Rece Davis.
In addition to the release of NCAA Football 13 on 7/10, EA also launched their You’re Covered Facebook App. This awesome program allows gamers to upload a photo online and print a custom cover featuring his or her face on the body of an NCAA Football 13 player.
I tried out the app for myself and found it very easy to use. All we had to do was pick our favorite team and upload a headshot photo and our custom cover was ready to print. We printed our custom cover at home on photo paper (regular copy paper would work fine too).
I think the custom cover turned out great! My son was so excited to see the finished product!
