I am a reader and have loved the past guides I have used.

This guide has helped me retool my roster to be more effective as well as help me modify the playbook for my Tennessee Vols to make their offense that much better.

I discovered the website of the writers of this guide before last years game. The site was good so I got the book last year, and it was good. This is more of the same. Gibs and Farls are the best in the buisness, and are accessible via twitter if you need help with anything. (@sgibs7 or @maddenbible) If you need to know something about the guide or the game they are very helpful.

Gibs and Farls have done it again...You can tell the effort that was put into this guide...It's very well thought out and organized...I'd recommend this for beginners to experts and everyone in between...There any many helpful tips and hints through out this guide that anyone can implement into their gameplay, whether they are playing online or in a dynasty, it all applies.

I've been buying the guide since 2010 edition, and I have to say this edition was very disappointing. Much of the guide is filler, such as putting two teams basic letter ratings in large block type on a single page, thereby taking up a large portion of the middle of the book that could have been better served with more information (maybe something I couldn't get simply by looking at my team in the game?). There is much less concentration on strategy than in previous versions. I think I can say for the first time that the guide brought little new information to the table. If you're looking for more basic info, like which defenders to key on when running the option, you'd be better served picking up a used ncaa 11 or 12 guide. This makes me wonder whether I should purchase the madden guide 13

This player guide is a great tool to have if you are a fan of NCAA Football 13. My favorite part is the top 5 lists that qyickly give you the info you need from the biggest mistakes you are making to the best formations to use on offense. This guide has helped me retool my roster to be more effective as well as help me modify the playbook for my Tennessee Vols to make their offense that much better. I would highly recomend this guide to any player of the NCAA Football series. There is a ton of info to help improve your game on both sides of the ball.

The NCAA Football 13 Official Players guide is a great guide on the game if you are new to playing football video games but for those that have experience playing past NCAA or Madden games the guide will not be as useful. The bulk of the guide is a series of "Top 5 tips" lists of various categories that will help you in all facets of the game itself whether if you are recruiting prospects for your dynasty, trying to choose the best running team in the game, learning the best defensive formations in the game, or information on the best players in each position. Beginners to the game would be well advised to read the Top 5 lists on common gameplay mistakes and tips to quickly improve (as well as the rest of the guide) as they can jumpstart your knowledge of the game. An experienced player with knowledge on football strategy may find a lot of these Top 5 lists not as helpful because they will know most of it already but there is still information which the player can benefit from, such as useful individual plays or key attributes to pay attention to. I feel like a lot of tips and strategy were tailored towards specific teams, and I wish the book would have divulged a bit more regarding steps on how you can set up a personal gameplan to fit your own playstyle and team needs.

There is also a section of the book devoted to maximizing your success with each of the individual Heisman winners in the Heisman mode. There is also a list of all 123 teams in the game (EA apparently forgot that South Alabama was in the FBS this year in the Sun Belt), and each team's section includes their impact players, play formations, and other basic info about the team.

Well designed. Not nearly as detailed as some of the guides I have purchased before. My sense is that this guide is a short cut to success in several significant categories. I am a reader and have loved the past guides I have used. This guide is helpful and worth the money.

I literally couldn't ask for a more organized guide for NCAA Football 13. With subjects like top 5 "Mistakes you are Making" & " top 5 "Depth chart changes" you will find yourself going back into the guide due to it's effectiveness and great structure.
