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: 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

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.
