Easily the second worst game I have ever played. I played Madden almost a decade ago and this game got even worse. The mechanics are horrendous and jarring. Nothing is smooth (when I turn left with my running back he runs around in a circle. The CPU receivers are dumber than bricks) - if I wanted to play a linear Pac-man I'd play Pac-man.
Don't waste your time unless you have nothing better to do with your time.

Better than '11 but same old game. Only thing new is rosters(like always). Feels more realistic, defense is better, and computer isn't as easy to beat. Could be better but until there is any competition EA will continue to make decent game.
AT 60 bucks a copy gamers deserve more and better products. I think its time to end EA Sports monopoly on The NFL license agreement and let some competition into the mix. Maybe then somebody might do the NFL justice by making a football game that is actually great! I for one will not spend my hard earned money on another sub par Ea sports football game just because it has the name and false hype of MADDEN!(if I was John Madden I would not even allow EA to use my name but we all know what money does ) Until other game companies are allowed to compete and make NFL licensed games I guess all we can expect is mediocrity.
