Excerpt: As the old saying goes “Another year, another Madden ”. It's not as jaded as it sounds, though, because the grid iron franchise has fallen into an impressive groove on the HD consoles as of late, and Madden 11 is no different. This year, the main addition is the new Gameflow play call system that streamlines on-field decision making for newcomers and veterans alike.
Summary: Madden NFL 11 captures the emotion and intensity of the NFL like never before. Whether you're a diehard football fan, gamer, or somewhere in between, Madden NFL 11 puts you in control of your favorite teams and NFL superstars and lets you feel what it's like to play on Sundays.
Excerpt: Long-running series always ultimately become victims of their own successes, and the divisive rifts they carve between different factions of hardcore fans who form wildly different opinions about the series’ essence.

Pros: A huge variety of game modes, Presentation is top notch, Playflow removes some complexity
