It's madden but not hard

It's nice for kids but truly for anyone who plays football this game is way too easy. I was scoring 100+ per game and hardly trying. Playing the PS3/360 games are much more of a challenge. Perfect game for kids though, my 7 year old liked it just fine.

I didn't like the changes that were made to '09. It discouraged me from playing it because I would have had to learn how to play all over again.

From a beginners perspective

First off, I've never played a Madden football game before. I had no understanding of play calling or any of that stuff. I went into this game thinking it'd be fun to try and hoping it wasn't too complicated.

The thing I really liked about this game was the mini-camp. It allowed you to perfect passing and gave you tutorials of moves you could do while running (spins, jukes, etc). After playing those for a while I went onto the game.

I didn't know a lot of the reasoning for which plays to call, so I started out just letting Madden pick. I liked passing the ball more than running because it was easier. Running got more fun after practicing. Defensive play calling is something I still don't understand, but maybe that's because I don't understand that aspect of football.

Overall, I thought this game was a lot of fun and I'm definitely going to be buying it.
