Summary: I've had this game ever since it came out and it is just not fun to play at times. Playing online is horrendously bad because most players onside kick every kickoff, go for 2 point conversions, and constantly run plays that are really hard to cover. The other game modes in this game are also trash.
Summary: This game is pretty dissapointing compared to the previous Maddens. Any hardcore gamers could find this game dissapointing and not worth making another one. Franchise mode is changed to Coach Mode but not the same control as you had in previous years. The graphics are decent but doesn't match up to even Madden NFL 11's graphics.
Summary: Although the graphics are good on this game, the gameplay is very rough with unrealistic things happening. For instance after almost every play is over you will see players tripping and falling all over each other. I also didn't like how EA changed the franchise mode. I would hope they bring the franchise mode from Madden '11 back. Poor game that I don't play anymore.
Summary: The gameplay in Madden is pretty good. But, there are many things I was disappointed with in the game. Franchise mode needs to come back. The Connected Careers mode is downright horrid. Its just an online version of Career mode. I was very disappointed with the Career mode itself. It costs too much to make one attribute rise by one point.
New game, but still has too many lingering issues Not for die hard players

Summary: I give EA credit for adding some new animations in the game. I primary play online franchise now connected career mode with 4-8 people. When I first saw how it gave individual players XP points allowing us the opportunity to upgrade player's ability by game performance (weekly & season goals) I was happy. What a mistake! We have people intentionally beefing up low rated player's stats & making them all-stars by week 8!
Summary: I liked this game dont get me wrong. But it has some major issues. To start the tackling is horrible and isnt realistic at all. When you throw the ball there isnt a spirel on it. I also have not figured out how to import a road to glory player or even if u can. But in career mode u can play as legend which is pretty cool and you can pick where your drafted which is not cool they took the whole draft thing outta the game.
Summary: At first, I thought it was great. The Connected Careers Player, im a QB on the Cards but it gets old, also actually playing WR is pretty fun because whenever you press the A button the ball goes your way and thats one of the reasons my rating isn't lower. The Gameplay in Connected Careers is Ok, but the hits are over-dramatic and it is overall a disapointment.
Summary: I like the new graphics, but thats about it. the new commentary always make fun of you if you struggle which just makes you mad. linebackers jump really high, which makes my passing gameplan useless since i do a lot of short routes to the middle. if you really want this game, buy it pre owned. if its not a big deal to you, just keep 12 and wait for the guaranteed improvement that will be 14.
