Summary: It came by mail fast and it was in perfect condition but, it's not what i expected it to be.. This game is very different from the psp version and its too complicated and hard especially for new players who is trying to learn football.
Summary: Not much has changed in Madden land. Overall a pretty good football game, but I have run into a bit of freezing. Online mode is fun, not too much lag. The be an NFL Superstar mode is fun. I've spent most of my time lately developing different position players and moving them up the ranks. If you haven't bought Madden in a few years I would recommend it.
I buy Madden every two years...should probably be four.

Summary: I buy Madden every two years. I only play about three multiplayer games a week and I would say about 50% of the time it is laggy between two people. Seeing as I'm already an underdog since I play so little, the lag is very frustrating. How can I can play 40 person COD games with no lag at all and Madden 12 lags like its 1999?
Summary: It's time for EA to reset the franchise. I wanted to think the GI review was a bit harsh. I'm an older gamer that has owned every Madden. I even played the EA football when it was Joe Montana and Bill Walsh. However, after playing 2012 more than a dozen times. I don't think the review went far enough. Gameplay has returned to the horrible abomination that was presented when PS3 launched. Menus, Franchise mode, and even how players are rated have become cumbersome.
Summary: Past madden games have been right on target. One of my pet peeves about Madden 12 for PS3 is the announcers. They are annoying and dont offer much insight in to the game its self. The graphics seem to have declined a little bit. They dont even offer a stock photo for a create a player. Madden NFL 12 The NFL lock out hurt the integrity of the game badly. The rosters are all messed up on every team.
Summary: This years Madden has some very nice new improvements such as the streamlined but yet in depth franchise mode, BUT the game seems like it is unfinished. I`ve been playing and have had a strange whitescreen apprear before the play that doesnt allow me to see anything on the field and the audio keeps working but then all of a sudden the play is over. This type of thing should never happen in a finished video game.
A few improvements, but basically the same as all Maddens
3 September 2011
Summary: I've played this game for about a week now - I would say ten full games or so. There are some improvements that people have talked about in other reviews - presentation is better (but still not great), gameplay seems slightly better in some ways, franchise mode has some nice touches to it. I think the best way to describe playing this game is still "frustrating". That's unfortunately how I have felt playing Madden (and this year NCAA 12) for the past few years.
Summary: I've been an avid Madden player since Madden 04. I really loved the direction the series took with Madden 10, as well as Madden 11. Madden 12 takes a sharp turn downwards. The changes seem minor, the camera angles are awkward, the kicking style isn't nearly as good. The running motion just seems off. The progress made with the past 2 Maddens have come to a stretching halt. I'm really disappointing in what I've played so far...I would give this a rent before you buy.
Summary: First, a disclaimer: For those that have played Madden since the PS2 generation, I think the best two are... PS2: Madden 2005 (and indeed, I think this is the best one period) PS3: Madden 2010 (play 2012 and go back to 2010, the presentation is so much better) Which brings me to Madden NFL 2012. I hestiated to buy this until my wife made the suggestions, who am I to argue?
