Summary: If you do something, I say you do it right to the best of your abilities. Too many parts of this game seem like they were just slopped together with very little thoughtfulness, if any. I think you're paying mainly for a 'new look' and updated rosters. I've been playing Franchise (only- so far) and the presentation is poor. I love the atmosphere of games and the crowd is dull here, barely changing unless there is a touchdown and then the stadiums aren't even full..
Summary: the game was preety horrible. maddon 10 is alot better. do your self a favor buy 10!!!!! sure the sound and graphics were great. but the gameplay sucks. it feels like your controling a stupid monkey that cant see two feet in front of him.
Summary: The gameplay on this game is okay sometimes you get some turnovers that should not happen but that happens in real games but the major flaw of this game is the commentary it is off big time..they do not say half of the players names and the ones they do they mention them 5mins later for example : you score a touchdown they say something about it 2 minutes later , say you have a HB who is not that known on your team he is not going to get talked about at all .
Summary: Visually the game is stunning, but that's about where it ends. 90% of the time I pass the ball the LB and DB's are knocking them down. They're knocking down passes which in real life are physically impossible to do so. example I through a 20 yard post... that means I'm 7 yards deep behind line (27 total yards), thus with the arc of my pass to get deep to receiver, the only players that have an op to block pass are SS, FS or DB.
Madden '12. If you still have an old Madden, don't buy this one.

Summary: Same old Madden that EA puts out every year. They pretend to have made improvements (like every year), but they're not noticeable or not there. And, same as always, Madden finds a few ways to drive you nuts. You can't change the difficulty for the "Madden Moments" game mode (it's too easy). You can't skip past the intro coin flip and announcer babble at the beginning of the game (and unless you're playing your rival, they have the same dialog. Every. Single. Game.).
Summary: Madden once again refuses to push the envelope and give people that "WOW"-factor. Madden is still either sub-par or very average in all aspects of sports gaming compared to any other sports game. There is absolutely nothing in this game that just makes you say, "Whoa, I wish this was in other sports games!" besides the actual NFL license lol...sad but true.
Summary: I played Madden when I was younger. I think the last time I played, Ray Lewis was on the cover. I tried to come back to Madden after a long time being away from it. I was more on the NBA Live and now NBA 2k side of town. I wanted to come back to Madden and see if I could get back into it. Turns out I feel like I wasted 60 bucks on this game. I mean 60 bucks for any game is a lot already, but for THIS game, I definitely feel like I could had got something else.
