Summary: Honestly it's possibly the funnest football game I've ever played. I've never had a game actually make me feel like I'm in the middle of the action like that. The moment the ball is snapped my heart starts racing...drop back, suddenly under pressure! So I lob it down field TOUCHDOWN! To summarize: the game is incredible and immensely fun of you take the time out to learn how to play it.

Summary: If you are looking for an ultra-realistic football game, look no further. Despite the release of physics in Madden, this game still is the most realistic football game I have ever played. The animations are spectacular, no two ever look the same. Every hit is different. Pass and run blocking feels like it should, and players never get sucked into animation as with Madden.
Summary: 1st let me say Ive been playing Madden since 2000 and although I have bought one every year since, both PC and PS3 I always been left feeling cheated. I felt as if I were just paying for roster updates and the game play itself I felt always had cartoonish simulation especially online. Real gaming skill became secondary in terms of winning and losing. However, Backbreaker feels and plays more like real football with an "on the field" feel to it.
