The first time I got this game, I figured there would be a lot of changes. However, the changes I saw shocked me. You can't create a team, the controls are weird, especially the point and pass feature, you can't create a player of your own or create a stadium. Also, nearly all of the NFL players have the same facial features. You can rent this game and see for yourself but I wouldn't recommend you buy it.
the only other madden game i've ever owned besides this one is madden 09 for the wii. i was so excited when i got madden 10 in the mail. luckily i kept madden 09. the players look like cartoons, when ever you go in for a tackle it's broken or you fall two feet short, you can't edit rosters or gameplay, the plays are simple and bad ( i always pick my plays but with this game i just let madden pick,) i can't complete a pass, and worst of all the game it's self is like a abstract watercolor that was made for seven year olds. there were few but some pros: no more celebration mini games, better party mode, a little more difficult, and 5 on 5 is in a real stadium. Note: i've game for two hours only trying party mode, some of a pickup game, and 5 on 5. These two hours has frustrated me enough, mainly with the computer breaking every tackle, to write this review. P.S. all gameplay was single player
