Okay, Madden NFL '12 is awesome!!! Graphics are better than ever, New Tackling system is great, and a more realistic running game this year! Plus, I like all the different uniform options. The 100+ changes to Franchise Mode really paid off for EA. Also, the Superstar Mode is nice.
Overall i gave it a 9. I would have gave it a 10, but there is ONE thing I don't like, the commentary. The commentary in Madden '12 is JUST PLAIN BAD!!!!! It's always late, and every phrase by Gus Johnson has a different pitch, so it sounds horrible when it's brought together in a sentence.

Finally, I have been waiting for this game to come out since my last birthday. I have been a fan of the madden series since i could walk. The last madden game i enjoyed was madden 07 and it was because of the superstar mode.
PRO's : great defensive plays. make's running the ball easier.
Franchise mode is updated big time. settings are great. gameplay fun. time to relax and play some football to finally beat yr son at something! major updates
CON's : Graphics (which shocked me) weren't as good this year. Hard to catch a ball if your the WR.
In conclusion madden 12 is an all around fun game. definitly a must buy.

Not trades or free agents that have been made in real life. I understand with the lock out that would be hard but it was fairly understood that guys like Namdi would be availible yet he is not. Kolb has 0 trade value even though it was understood there were many offers for him once the lockout was over.
Aside from those issues I also have a few game play issues. Running QBs are close to pointless as you can't tuck and run and there is no acceleration. The game decides when you accelerate which ends up making guys like Deshaun Jackson seem to have the same speed as everyone else. Other than that it's the same game it has been for a while.
Avg game won't blow you away. IMO NCAA beats it again.
