New game, but still has too many lingering issues Not for die hard players
12 February 2013
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: The new physics engine is very good and makes for more realistic gameplay! Online mode is very fun, however I was disapointed that there is no longer Franchise mode in the game. I like this Madden game the best so far, other than the omitted Franchise mode.
Summary: My only issue with the new madden came because of NCAA 13. I understand that they are not the same game but they are attached at the hip. NCAA is the prequel to Madden. The big issue that I have is that they took away the best part of the last 4 madden games. Being able to save a draft class and add it to Madden. That hurts fans who look for a realistic connection in the game.
Summary: I haven't played the game and only wanted to leave a comment...apparently that isn't an option. But without playing the game I can tell you one problem right away: the review has four paragraphs on stuff happening off the field, one paragraph on the physics engine, and one on passing. There you have it. I don't play Madden to be a coach and I think all the off the field stuff is getting in the way of what the core of the game should be, a football game.
Another Madden game another piece of awesomeness but i was wrong

Summary: As a regular madden gamer. This instalment was bad in my opinion. No more training challenges so hard to lend it for non Madden fans who want to learn how to play it. No more offline Season mode, so makes it impossible to play it when not on the net. So I had to do endless exhibition games instead. Really stupid by EA to make this a multi player On-line focused only.
Summary: If you're a fan of Madden games I would get '12 instead of this. "Dynasty" or Player/Coaching mode as they call it in the isn't the greatest. Maybe I am just not used to the change but I like the way it was set up before.
Summary: Arrived right on time, no complaints there. Not my fav Madden however, Imo Madden 12 is better. I've been buying madden every year since 04 and sometimes I feel like EA makes changes year to year just for the sake of making changes.
