Summary: I've played this game since it came out, for who knows what reason. I think I'm facsinated with how bad it is. It's actually infuriating. See, when I'm playing a CPU, I don't like to lose unless there are obvious reasons for why, like poor judgement during a play, throwing into tight coverage. I can handle that stuff, they're just dumb decisions by me. The thing is, that's not how you lose games to the CPU in Madden.
Summary: I really wanted this game to be fun, but after spending hours and hours tweaking and trying to lie to myself that this game is worth my time, I have to surrender. This is the worst madden game I have ever played. I have thrown in the towel on this franchise until they fix the ridiculous gameplay that just isn't fun. The good... 1. The graphics... The bad... 1. Cheating AI - no matter how much I tweaked the settings it was either too hard, or too easy.
Summary: I have been playing Madden since the early 90's in college and have logged more hours playing than I would ever care to admit. I have bought Madden religiously since 2000 and recently upgraded to the PS3 and thought that Madden must be 10 times better on the PS3. Little did I know how wrong that assumption was. Madden 2011 on the PS3 is absolutely horrible. I actually had it for the PS2 before upgrading, and it was better. First, the menu options are more cumbersome.
Summary: It seems most reviews were right on point as to where the game fails. I will just touch up one aspect that irritates the heck out of me - players are not required to have any tactical skills on the offensive side of the ball. EA basically took out the basic strategic characteristic and replaced it with a "NFL Blitz" retard version.
Summary: Cory R really had the best review on here, and summed it up well when he said he would rather mow his lawn instead. This is a truly a slap in the face to anyone who has been playing Madden for at least the past 5 years. EA has finally exposed their exclusive rights greed by putting out a product that insults the players intelligence. Gameflow is the worst thing ever.
DON'T BUY THIS GAME! Force EA to make needed changes!

Summary: I decided to give Madden a shot this year, and it was a huge mistake. In short, EA knows they have a cash cow and do everything very sloppy. There is no reason that NCAA Football come out a month earlier and always offers a more polished in game and out of game experience. This game has a shocking 2.5 star on amazon, and more people need to get the word out to NOT BUY THIS GAME AND FORCE EZ TO FIX THE FRANCHISE!! First the short positives.
