Can't enjoy a game that doesn't work,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: NCAA Football 13 - Xbox 360 (Video Game)
Dynasty mode is what drives this franchise, and it simply doesn't work in NCAA Football 13. After a few hours, it freezes on the load screen to a game, usually mid-season. I have played multiple dynasties with multiple schools, and the freezing issue comes up each time and makes the Dynasty non-functional. The only recourse is to shut the Xbox off with the main power button.
Truly a waste of money. Shame on you, EA. Shame on you.

I have the same issue. Game should be pulled from market until repaired.

I also have this issue. I agree with OP and the above commenter. Game should be pulled off the market until they fix this.

Sucks!Bought the game last week,haven't gotten deep into the game yet,but the same stuff will probably happen to me too.I skipped '12,maybe I should go back to playing '11,really afraid to get Madden(skipped '12 too).I think I'll stick with NHL13,and 2K13.

I had this problem and then I installed the game to my Xbox 360 and the freezing issue went away.

I had this same problem. The workaround that is...working...for me is to go into recruiting, fool around just a little so that when you come out you trigger an autosave. Than start the game.
Work every time for me. Just frustrating how often I have to do it.

Same problem. Tried the "recruiting auto-save" workaround, and it seems to be working for now. Considering the game still says that Erin Andrews will be on the sidelines before games, I wouldn't be surprised if EA spends most of their time playtesting new features.

doing something that forces an autosave before you try to start the game allows you to play the game without a freeze, as others have mentioned

I had a similar problem as well. I think it happens sometimes when you do recruiting for a week, and then don't play the game right after, it can freeze up at the loading screen. I started a new Dynasty, installed my game to my hard drive, and have not had the same problem since. And I believe that I HAVE recruited without playing a game in the same session again.
So while this is an annoying issue, it seems there may be a possible fix.
