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 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.
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.
Summary: they spent to much time on presentation, not enough on game play. the players run like they have something up their butts. very poor. They should look to younger brother NCAA Football and change it to that style, then the other stars and sprinkles with shine.
Summary: As a hard core Madden fanatic I am extremely disappointed with this piece of garbage. I only rate it a 1 to counteract the people that un-deservedly give this a 5. My real rating would be a 2 or maaaybe a 3 because of the graphics. But all games should have good graphics by now. Where is the my music option that is available in NHL2010? That game is EA as well, there is no excuse for this.
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: Most everyone has played a game in the Madden series. That's exactly the problem with Madden 11: If you've played Madden in the last 5 years, you've played this one. Graphically and in terms of gameplay, very little has changed in several years. Of course, a new feature or two is introduced each time around, but it's essentially the same game with a roster update. It feels as though EA is pushing everyone to online play, and forsaking all else.
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.
Summary: I felt like I burned $60... Very bad experience! Totally unrealistic game Checkers is a game, this is a cartoon! I got so mad playing online when for the umpteenth time after leading by at least 3 TDs to lose in the 4th qt I finally snapped and broke the disk! Its a cartoon NOT A Game of skill..BEWARE!!!
