I'm sure by now all Madden players know about the LeBron/Dwight Howard jumping LB's in this game...or the way receivers seem to be oblivious to the idea that ball was thrown to them. Oh and how the commentary is always 3 plays behind...but presentation is very nice and crisp. Now here are the other problems if you haven't been to "Be a superstar" mode if your not quarterback don't waste your time the A.I. of this game must have been by a semi handicap monkey Madden and EA you have yet failed again my friend first no basketball game for 2 years n now you throw out this junk. Battlefield3, MW3, Saints Row, 2k12, Dead Island even WWE 12 save us for if the world was to depend on Madden this upcoming holiday season those who believe in Santa would probably hunt him down and destroy him for leaving it.

This game has excellent graphics and game play! The only thing I didnt like about it was, that you have to pay extra $ to EA in order to play it on xbox live!! That was really a heart breaker!!! But all in all its the best madden game yet!!!

I have been a die hard Madden fan since Madden was on the original PlayStation in the mid to late 90's. (I don't remember when it came to PS1.) That being said this is by far the most realistic game that the Madden series has ever released, but this is yet another step in the wrong direction as far as game play goes for me at least. Where are the days of the sprint button, stiff arm, and the ability to not bounce off of defenders and dance in place for one second. The characters are 100% the best they have ever made, but the game play just keeps going to wrong direction. I will take to early 2000's Madden's any day over this new polished but awkwardly played out versions. It got a 7 from me because it is terrific in the aspect of character realism and options, but it lacks physics realism and replay value for me. I got the 1000G and will never look at this one again. Thanks for reading.
