Fair

Madden was fun......some time ago.

It's probably just me, but this game just seems tired to me. I use to go absolutely insane for the release of the newest greatest Madden game, but that was a platform war ago and a playstation not an Xbox. The graphics were fine, the game play was there, the excitement was not. I want to pick it up and play, instantly able to have fun but I can't. All the wishing and wanting for new features I use to do have come true and I am dreadfully regretful for it. Enjoy yourself those who love it maddenly, you're doing just as you've been told to do.

I love the great new graphics and the game play is also a step forward. Although the playbook has been greatly decreased. I guess in an effort to step up graphics. I am slightly disappointed this year.

Best Madden ever, but Announcers are still awkward

This is the best Madden game i've ever played. Im more of a NFL 2K fan, but i couldn't help pass all the changes EA have made on their 20th anniversary.

Madden is slowly catching up to the feel of the 2K series. Excellent graphics, though there is the occasional stutter.

If only they can make the announcers sound smoother...
