Xbox gamers = REAL GAMERS unlike the sonymite..., Amazon

Summary: I played Madden 06 & 07 to death, I never got a Madden or NCAA football game on my ps3 until now. I got this and NCAA 12 and I almost hate both with a passion due to all the changes they made which were fine as is. God why is the hitstick so useless in this game? why do my friends never fumble the ball when I play against them?
Summary: The game has a lot of flaws, and allows players to cheat. I think it's one of the worst Madden sims made because of that. EA Sports should also stop milking their Madden customers with new games at $60.00 a pop every season and instead make an add on disc every season with new season updates for about $20.00 without the flaws and cheating available to customers.
Summary: I'm stuck in the "my madden game sucks" loop. Here's how it goes: I play the game, I'm very disappointed, I put it away for a few days, I need to play some football, I play the game, I'm very disappointed.... loop until I buy NHL 11. This is the probably the worst madden game in several years. Controlling your player on defense is practically impossible. Moving your QB in the pocket is practically impossible.
Summary: This year's madden boasts the best animations yet. On top of that it looks very pretty, and the game day presentation reminds me of espn 2k5. Franchise mode hasn't changed at all. No improvements have been made which is a shame since its my favorite mode. Now onto the bad: Rosters are severely flawed (missing players, horrible rating choices).
Summary: I haven't owned a Madden game in probably five years and apparently I haven't missed much. For some reason I got the urge to buy this one and have been largely unimpressed. While I find the gameplay to be about on par with what I expected (Gameflow is completely optional for all those that have complained), the franchise mode seems to have become a complete after thought. I honestly think it it had more depth and presentation when I last owned Madden on my X-Box.
Summary: Very disappointing. EA Sports--shame on you. The online game play, which to me has been the cornerstone of success for the Madden franchise, has lost nearly all potency and credibility when compared to Madden 10. In addition, the new gameplay and in-game audio happen to also jump out to me as major deficiencies with the 2011 game.
If you liked Madden 10, this is no longer the game you loved.

Summary: Not worth more than $30. Only good if you are new to the Madden series. If you were good at Madden before you basically have to start over. Cool game to play casually with a few friends but Franchise isn't as fun because the game controls suck. Online is slow and not anything close to last years game. Also, why pay $60+ for a game that bombards you with Ads, and charges you to use their online section if you buy used.
