Summary: MADDEN NFL 10 is good game,but it is extremely tricky and you have to be a very good gamer in football.I would definitely recommend this game to experienced gamers but not to people who have never played a football game before.
If you don't want to use sliders do not play this.

Summary: I will start by saying , the presentation of this game is great. The mechanics are smooth and the control is about as good as it has been on this gen. Ready for the bad? Where to start, well lets start with the terrible AI. If you turn this game and play on the default setting (pro) you will notice that your players let off of their blocks as soon as you choose their hole to run up.
Summary: This game was slow as hell. Sure graphics get better each year but do we really need all that top notch visual over game play? I find this game more annoying then anything. Save your money. Wait for the season to end and buy it for 25 bucks used.
Summary: Madden 2010 is actually a huge step up from previous maddens but it needs some work. The graphics are amazing as usual, but gameplay is lacking as well. The difficulty is basically like this: The harder the difficulty the dumber your team is and the worse they play. The easier the difficulty the dumber the computer is and the likeliness of having a big play is pretty much guarunteed.
Summary: Well it might have taken a decade (or two) but EA Sports has finally gotten with the program and added difficulty sliders. Not that hard to do, considering the 2k Sports titles have been doing this for years. The question is, do they make the difference? Madden 10 incorperates alot of what the previous years have been working toward. There are fancy replays, nice looking cutscenes, and there are even referees this year (doh!).
Mediocre update - needs competition from 2K Sports

Summary: EA bought the exclusive NFL licensing so they have no competition and it shows. They are overpriced and they make you pay even more for things that used to be unlockable through game play. 2K Sports was cheaper and typically had better game play. The biggest problem that I have with the game is the special feature fluff. Measuring for the first down, referee conferences in the end zone, instant replay. If there's a way to turn these off, I haven't found it.
Summary: When you play the game the first time you immediately notice the difference in graphics. There are so many more details than ever before, the towels the refs socks, and the players names are much more focused. Then you see the trade off when it has a cut scene and focuses on one player the other players that come into the screen are completely out of focus. This is a minor annoyance but very unrealistic none the less.
Summary: If you married, DO NOT PLAY THIS GAME; IT WILL OWN YOUR SOUL FOR HOURS :) Buy it @ GAMESTOP...They are the VERY BEST!!PERIOD This game is the best madden so far and i strongly recommened it to sports fans. it has diamond like graphics,good controls, and great game play. at first before i bought this game i thought it would just be a waste of green but then i tried the demo online and they put some new features like, Pro Tak which means they changed the way you tackle a...
Summary: Maybe just because this is my first year getting Madden for PS3 (Madden 09, I had on xbox 360), but this game seems to not be as visually appealing as Madden 09 was on xbox 360. The graphics are fine, but the play and smoothness in the animation seems to be lacking, everything has stiff, and choppy feel to it. And it seems like they've missed some minor details that really turn me off. One of which is having the ball spin the wrong direction when the ball is passed.
Conclusion: When I first fired it up I was ultra impressed by how they have improved the overall experience of presentation the half time touches and weekly updates I think are exceptional, I like the new animations for gang tackle and also that average players now cannot track and take down a player from an animation seemingly starting 5 yards away, (except in all pro single player see below), also as with all new games loving the trophies which you have to be at all pro to get so...
