Summary: I should preface this review by noting that I have only played a career game in Madden and have not tried any aspects. I own NCAA 12 as well and link the two by exporting graduating classes from NCAA 12 into Madden 12 for each years draft class (a feature I like quite a lot).
Summary: Was looking forward to this years Madden, but like lately, it turned out to be the same old roster update. Sure there's a couple changes here and there for Franchise Mode: Pre-season cut days, Free-agent bidding (which I personally don't enjoy that much, as once I find a player I want he's gone!
Summary: I bought it because Toys R US was offering a $15 dollar off deal and the improvements seemed legit. I have been an above average supporter of madden. I own 04-07 for ps2. I bought 08 on ps3 and was disgusted by EAs lazy port and inferior visuals.
Madden 12 is just as good as its cover athletes team.

Summary: This is my first time writing a review here on amazon. This game is horrible. Madden 11 seemed to be a step in the right direction but this game just made a complete U-turn. I'm thinking maybe the game is this bad because of the potential NFL lockout, so maybe it was rushed in the end.
Summary: There are some positives with Madden 2012, but in my opinion the negatives far outweigh the positives. For example, the game simply looks fantastic. The stadiums and player models (except for the zombie faces) look great, visually, it's the closest Madden to real football.
Summary: Why do i keep paying full price for MADDEN?? (oh that's right because there was a $20 dollar pre-order credit) New year same old madden... Graphics are always with EA years ahead of everyone but game play is lacking once again.
Big hype about nothing: THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE UGLY

Summary: I'll start out by saying I've owned every Madden game since the SNES days to Madden 10. (I did also play '11 but did not purchase it.) I was excited about all the new changes & features added to this year's Madden game. I was so sure that this would be the year that Madden finally got it right.
