Summary: I was extremely disappointed about this game. The controls are not the best. The graphics are cartoon-ish and glitchy. The game lags like crazy. The announcers sound bad and you can't even hear the refs. The shadowing is cool but is way too slanted. I wouldn't buy this game for over $20. It seems to much like a Wii Madden game.
Summary: After buying the last two Madden's with frustation abounding, I decided to rent this one just to see if there might be improvements...no, not one, in fact it's worse. How could this game be worse? It appears as if all the pride that went into the game back in the day (and it was the hallmark game when I owned a Sega Genesis, was rather like the holy grail of sports games), has just been drained. Perhaps it's the king on the hill syndrome?
Summary: Don't waste your time or money on this POS. While the actual game play wasn't bad, it's still not even worth the trouble of playing because of all the issues with it. It takes forever to navigate the screens, probably because it looks like they tried to make it based on Windows 8, load times take forever, there was an issue with the game randomly freezing though that seems to have been corrected recently.
Summary: I will keep this short. I have been a long time Madden buyer for 15 years. This has to be the worst year ever! Offensive line men missing blocks and running down field like they are going out for a pass. RG3 raises up off his back like a spring board to tackel a line backer that recoverd his fumble. A clipping call on my special teams "3 TIMES" in a row on a punt return! Really?
Summary: Unbelievable the game dosen't work, constantly freezes up. I have been reading that this has happened to many customers this year. EA sports has sunk to a new low screwing thousands of loyal fans out their money when we have been buying their products year after year. I have bought Madden every year since 1997, this year will be the last for sure. 70 bucks, what a joke. What a bunch of theives.
Summary: I've been play Madden Football most of my life, and this has to be the worst one. I have yet to finish a game without my starting running back having a season ending injury. every time I run the ball no matter who it is there done. The new modes are dumb and I see no reason for them. At least the runner don't fall all over themselves like the game. Like I said, they just get hurt all the time. Not a fun game just stick to 2013.
