Summary: As far as Madden games go, they are mostly no different from the previous title and change is brought overtime. But with this one they decided to make noticeable changes that tried to give gamers a different experience from Madden 12, but it didn't work out that well. The gameplay appears to be the same as 12, but seems to be lacking fluidity. It appears they been trying to work on the appearance rather than the factors that make the game enjoyable.
Summary: I had no idea that franchise mode would not be in the game when I bought this game. It was the biggest disappointment for me in 2012. I have played every Madden and I now find myself playing Madden 12 so I can actually play a franchise. The commentators seem to be insulting me with everything they say. If I run on 3rd down he says why am I not to aggressive but if I pass he says why are they so aggressive. Madden 25 better step their game up.
Summary: I got this in December and it has no franchise mode. You don't get roster updates unless you pay for the online pass or something. I don't care about that. I want rosters, franchise, and better music. If 25 isn't good enough, I will sell them both.
Summary: I would recommend this to people who love good graphics. But there is no franchise mode and superstar and replaced it with connected carrers so if u like franchise your better off getting 12 or keeping 12.
Summary: Playing Madden I was hoping it would be better with all the new "additions" and improvements. But when a game that costs $60 shouldn't crash constantly in game. If your on the edge on buying this game. DONT unless you love being annoyed. While playing career mode the game is constantly crashing on me and killing my progress I've made.
Summary: Madden 13 is just another EA sports FAILLLLLLLLLL. Madden 13 has my head spinning in circles because the New Physics engine so called is suppose to make it look and feel like a real NFL game. WRONGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG. When players are tackling other players on a run play (lets say the HB Sprint) they all just drop and fall, and when they fall they roll around like a dog to get back up. The ref's are just plane right dumb if you ask me.
Summary: the tacklers look like the collide all they do is trip over eachother... and what happend to the gang tackles? linebackers jump unrealisticly high ...took away the franchise mode now its some stupid connected career mode which sucks fyi infinity ward jumped in and screwed up madden just like they messed up mw3 this year worse 2 puchases of the year
