For one of the first ps3 games the graphics were pretty good. AI was nice also. However there is a great gap in the game lvls..... at least when i or my friend played it. On pro lvl i would beat opponents 100-10, but when i put it on all-pro I lost every game I played like 35-7 or worse.
This game would be the revolution of Madden, which is if you give it a chance. A lot of people doom this game to a terrible rating after the first game, but this game is not as terrible as many people think or have heard.
However with every revolution there are always some regrets. This game is no different. A few changes were not nessicary, such as the play calling screen, although there is no glitch in the system and any player that pays attention will soon use the bluff play call to avoid from the defense seeing what play you are running.
Graphics are more amazing than ever, but gameplay just feels like there is something missing. Whether it is just a little slow or if it is just not fluid, but it is obvious there is something small missing. Another dissapointing feature is that only two people can play. They can only play each other. No more 4 on 4 games if you ever lived in a college dorm.
In the end, this Madden is a nice refresher knowing that there is a revolution occuring, but it will just take time until they get everything more organized. But forever there will always be the haters that hate EA for every dumb reason out there, but this game is not a good reason to hate EA. Enjoy and go Cowboys ;)
