Summary: The worst Madden game i ever played (have not played 13 yet). Where should i start, they redefined passing the ball by making every pass thrown in the middle picked off by a linebacker, i played linebacker and surely never had the hands to make those catches. and addaptive defense means you cant just throw short passes and run. franchise was ok but the gameplay itself sucks.
Summary: I am not a die hard madden player. In fact this was the first madden game I purchased since madden 09. I bought it this year because I was able to organize a decent sized franchise group. I was extremely disappointed in the game... The number one thing I will address is the inability to use a custom playbook in franchise mode for custom audibles. I am known in my madden group as the Peyton Manning of madden.
Summary: The madden series always boasts the improvement they make with each new game they release but all they really do is change the menu and improve the graphics. They continuously ignore the most important part, the gameplay! Sure this madden looks better than the rest and it's more polished and if that's all you want out of it then you will be fine.
Summary: Playing superstar mode I literally went 9-7 went into GB and beat the Packers with TB by two touchdowns and when I tried to play the next round it simulates to the Pro Bowl!!! Wtf!!! This is after the game froze numerous times during the season. So what is left to say? Ever play a game win and not advance to the next round? Me either until today!
Summary: Buyers be aware this seller sold me a defective NFL 12 used the disc had a scratch and stop working on my X Box 360. I didn't notice it until the disc stopped working. I didn't play this game much it would play if this was the frist disc played when i turned my Xbox on but if tryed to play after you exited the game and reloaded it freezes up. It's past my 14 day return policy and buyer will not refund my money.
Summary: We've had this game for almost a year now, it's fun but glitchy. The game kept freezing so we bought a new Xbox that has A LOT more free memory. That hasn't fixed the problem, the game still freezes at least once a week. We also tried to create our own team which sucks because you have to delete one of the official NFL teams in order to do so.
