Summary: Parents need to know that Madden NFL 11 is an E-rated football simulation game. The game is appropriate for players of all ages, but parents should know that the Wii, Xbox 360, and PS3 versions of the game let you play on the Internet -- and with the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions, you can also chat while playing. This means kids could potentiallyhear profanity or interact verbally with complete strangers.
Conclusion: The preponderance of big plays is the main reason Madden struggles to capture the feeling of the real sport. Whether you're slinging bombs downfield on offense, lighting people up with big hits on defense, or returning kicks for touchdowns on special teams, there are lots of huge moments in Madden 11 even on higher difficulty levels. With so many explosive plays, though, Madden struggles to capture the strategic joy a more realistic approach would have offered.
Pros: Hand of God cooperative mode is enjoyably goofy, Big plays are fun to pull off.
Cons: Strange balance between realism and arcade style, Quarterbacks are way too good at running and passing, Limited online options.

Pros: Franchise mode., Accessible gameplay., New additions.
Cons: Occasional control issues., Occasional online issues., Commentary is a bit limited.

Pros: Hand of God cooperative mode is enjoyably goofy, Big plays are fun to pull off
Cons: Strange balance between realism and arcade style, Quarterbacks are way too good at running and passing, Limited online options
