Summary: I bought this game along with NCAA 2012 to get some sports games on my PS3. I played the game for about 25 minutes and immediately decided to sell it back. The graphics are not very impressive, the camera angles are annoying sometimes, the game-play is choppy, and they reintroduced the one button kicking system.
Summary: I LOVE football...played 12 yrs. I watch college and NFL games as much as possible. I know football inside and out. I have played just about every football video game title dating back to 10 Yard Fight. And the best one to date has been 2K5. On to the Madden 12 review... Madden 12 is so bad I actually halfway kind of like the game bc it makes me laugh so much. I crack up when a LB or DE can one hand catch a bullet pass off balance.
Summary: No love. This madden is terrible. It's a completely different system from madden 10. Every pass is contested and it's very easy to throw interceptions and get sacked on all-pro. If u can master this game and it's new system, kudos to u but i just couldn't adjust. I am done with madden. Fun game to watch but playing it gives me headaches. even audibling out of plays have changed.
Summary: This is coming from someone who held off buying the last 3 Maddens and GLAD I did. I purchased this Madden only because it was the closest roster to my team without being $60 down the drain.. I ended up with only $30 down the drain. The Good: My team is there.. Completions. The Ok: Music,Menu,visual presentation in some areas. The Bad: I would say the whole game if not for the above mediocre bullets. AI teammates are horrible,dumb out of the ordinary moves.
Summary: I have played Madden games since the SNES era, and for some reason I keep forgetting that the last version of the game disappointed me and I go out and purchase the next Madden anyways. EA has put such little effort into improving the game itself, but I can almost guarantee that they will put a lot of effort into securing another exclusive license with the NFL so they can continue putting no effort into the game.
Summary: Each and every year I tell myself that I'm done with Madden. And what do I do? I get suckered in and buy it. But this is the last time, I traded it in, this is the first time I ever traded in a Madden game. I remember playing the franchise mode with every single NFL team, and having a blast. This game has consistently went downhill for years. The franchise mode sucks, plain and simple. I couldn't even make it through week 8, I just couldn't take it anymore.
