Gamespot NCAA 13 Review (Harsh)

http://www.gamespot.com/ncaa-footbal...tball13;ReadIt


Gamespot actually gave it a pretty good review. A 6.5/10, actually harsher than OS's review.

Opening paragraph:


In real life, sports are a merciless competition in which only the strong survive. Punishment is swift and severe for teams that languish, so there is a constant push to make huge improvements from one season to the next. Virtual sports are very different. The NCAA Football franchise has been lagging for years, shoving the same basic content out the door without any major changes to keep things fresh. Its lack of evolution goes against everything professional sports have been built upon. And NCAA Football 13 continues this unfortunate trend. Although the gridiron action is solid, dull off-field activities and crushing familiarity make this another tired entry in the stuck-in-the-mud franchise.


GS is on the same page as OS.

And it still has that damn squiggly line glitch.

I'll read it, but I still can't take Gamespot seriously after that one.

Re: Gamespot NCAA 13 Review (Harsh)

I usually don't care when the non-sport game reviewers review a sports game, but I'm actually glad NCAA is finally getting some mediocre ratings. The ratings for the series has been generally positive this gen, even though most actual fans of the series disagree.

Maybe mediocre ratings across the board can inspire some change from EA. Right now NCAA 13 has a 75 on metacritic. NCAA 12 had a 82. NCAA 11 had a 86. NCAA 10 had a 83.

Obviously, the game critics were overrating these games. Fwiw, the user rated averages for those games on metacritic are 7.3 for 11, 5.7 for 12, and 5.9 for 13.

I'm glad to see they are telling it like it is. A lot of the time sites like Gamespot and IGN will go easy on these games and give them a better rating than they deserve but there is nothing he said in that opening paragraph that isn't true.

Yes the review was accurate, but im having a blast playing it even with all the frustrating and disapointing things the video mentioned. I am glad I made my purchase!
