madden 10 was actually better. the whole time im playing madden 11 it feels like its one long animation it goes so slow. everything is slow,play calling, animations, oh and thanks for taking away speed burst. thats what the game really needed...less control. ncaa 11 is miles ahead of this game. trust me if u r thinking of getting a football game get ncaa.
I am a hardcore EA gamer. I have loved all their titles dating way back from the super nintendo. But trust me... So far all the '11 titles SUCK. EA sports has gotten rid of all the features we have grown to love over the years. You have to pay for online play?!? WHAT IS THAT?? The headset feature they are pushing on this madden...YOU CANT USE IT ON TWO PLAYER??? So what is the point of having this?? Do yourself a favor...get this as a rental, DON'T pay the extra for the ea online code. And after you're done with it (it will only take a few days) just retrun it. Stick with the EA '10 games...trust me you will be MUCH better off

Get this game for your 5 year old son. The gameplay is super dumbed down, and super slow (with constant useless highlights that makes the playcalling screen come up slow. They try to take away your ability to call plays, use TURBO, and strafe. How does the computer know when i want to strafe or turn around and run, let alone when I want to burst to hit a hole.
They did nothing to the Franchise mode - very disappointing
Didnt incorporate the NCAA playcalling scheme. Could be the best advancement in football games within the last 5 years. Just left out.
Bad Music. I dont want to hear a bunch of classic rock. Its like they made this game for under 10 and over 50, WHAT ABOUT THE HARDCORE GAMERS, EA SPORTS? They have forgotten us.
They even overhauled the pre snap adjustments. I would say great job, but they added more steps in most cases. If you have played this game in years past, your "madden instincts" will actually hinder your performance. No longer can a 10 year madden vet mash buttons pre snap without even thinking, instead you have to bring up menus and show your opponent the audibles you have to choose from.
I never like NCAA over madden, but I have to say, if you want a real football game get NCAA college football... or stick to last years madden.
I gave it a 4 because the graphics are quite impressive. But who cares? Give me great gameplay with responsive feel and I dont care what the players look like.
