I have been a Madden fan for years, and sadly haven't rented or played one since probably 09, so being the fan I was you could see my anticipation for playing this game since I had gotten my gamefly account. Sadly though, I was let down in every way.
Normally I would begin with the pro's of the game but in this case i don't feel like wasting the one sentence I would have to think 20 minutes to get. I remember a game where you could create characters and import them to your favorite team to play seasons with. When I heard you could create a whole team, i got all excited and put this game in my #1 slot in my GF Q. It wasn't till I recieved the game that I found out that there is no season mode anymore. They mixxed the franchise mode where you could only control your teams off field actions with season mode, and I still can not figure out how to get my toon onto my created team. I don;t know if they had just added so many options in the last few years that I missed a piece i needed or if you just can't. Either way, I am lost in this game and can not just set up a simple season to play and it is very aggravating. I must have spent at least 4 hours just trying to figure out what game modes are what and what you can do on each.
I have been playing this game for 2 days and about 12 hours and still have no idea how to get a created player on a team to play with for anything other than an exhibition game.
That being said, the gameplay is horrible. I would pull out the pocket as a QB and stand still and throw to a guy and not even throw anywhere near where he was standing. I broke a controller while playing this game cuz it was so random how your passes would play out.
When I rented this game I had the illusion that i could create a few players to represent me and my friends i play flag football with and have them on my team to do a few seasons with and collects some stats. Turns out that this is not applicable to this game.
i just recieved this game after a 2 week wait. i insert the disk and it reads unable to play. ...... be careful about these games cause you are paying money for playable games and some wont. this is my second game outta 5 that wont play
