Summary: AHHHHHH!! This is one of those "Every time I want out, EA Pulls Me Back In," deals. I M sick of this game, but there is no other alternative. Thanks to the NFL. Thanks God I don't have to pay to play this OLD FAITHFUL, TIRESOME, SAME OLD, SAME OLD, Boring game. If you are a Madden buyer, trust me, its only because you are a MASOQUIST. There is no other explanation. Like SADE'S song goes, "ITS NEVER AS GOOD AS THE FIRST TIME.
Summary: I read all the negative reviews on this and figured it was just the same old people, complaining about madden like they do every year. So, I waited for the price to drop because I own every Madden game from the last 10 years and am a life long lions fan. I must say, the game is even worse than expected. Franchise mode is gone, replaced with career mode. I'm sure you've already read that. It's even worse than expected though.
Summary: I buy Madden every year. I won't buy it ever again. Madden Ultimate Team is a scam that preys on children. It should actually be illegal. Save you're money and you're sanity. Also, it's a carbon copy of the last 5 games... Pathetic.
Summary: I'M NOT HAPPY WITH THIS PRODUCT!! SORRY.... THE GAME DOESN'T HAVE THE ONLINE PASS AND I NEED IT TO PLAY A REAL GAMES NOT JUST ONLY FOR FRIENDLY GAMES, SO IM VERY DISSAPPOINTED WITH THE PRODUCT!!!
Summary: This is not what we have come to expect from EA Sports- usually a great game, and has been a great series, but not this time. EA Sports have taken all the good things away- cant edit, cant fix rosters, cant really do much without online access. The interface is badly designed and the season mode is all locked up so changes to rosters etc are not reflected. Do yourself a favor and skip this one - hopefully they will get back on the same page with the fans by 2014...
Summary: Absolute worst football sim I've ever played, bar none. Laggy, glitchy, freezes all the time. Even if you have a brand new console, you will experience some of the most painful game freezes while trying to do basic functions, like drafting your players, setting your depth chart and when going into overtime. Seriously. This game isn't worth the postage to send it to your house. Avoid Madden 13 like that girl with the s*** on her lip.
Summary: I'm utterly baffled at some of the decisions made with this game. The only way I play sports games is by creating a franchise and using created players in said franchise. It's what is fun for me. It's what I've done in virtually every sports game I've owned for the last 15 years. Well, you can't do that in the new Madden. Sure, you can create players and add them to rosters, but only within the 'Play Now' mode. You can't use custom rosters in the Career mode.
Summary: Two words.. New Coke. My kids love(d) Madden. We typically drop the $60.00 charge every year to get the improvements and the roster updates. Not having Peyton where he is now, would be a issue to my kids. So, admittedly, that is one of the big reasons for getting the new version year after year. After this year though, they are going to have to live without it. Madden 2013 comes out, and they wreck the best part of the game. The traditional Franchise Mode is busted.
DO NOT GET THIS-Last update after patch #3-DO NOT GET THIS CRAP!

Summary: Read my updates below. Unless you like playing single games do not get this crap. If you are a longtime Franchise mode player do not get this....there is NO Franchise mode and what we have in it's place...Crappy Careers...is not Franchise mode and it's crap. The new game engine is a nice idea but it's far from ready and therefore it's crap.
