This is the first next-gen Madden I played and it was not a good introduction. It felt like playing the old Madden 98 when players spun in place. The gameplay felt stiff but the graphics are good. I think I may play the ps2 version and have more fun.
While this game is very consistent with the Madden's of old, the new hit stick and play control is solid. The online play has been good as well. If you are a Madden fan this game is definitely worth playing. If you weren't a Madden fan prior to the release of this game I do not think this game is going to change your mind.
