Read a lot of bad things bout this game but I always have to see for my self. Well when I got the game I could not stop playin it special. Ultimate madden fun love it only thing bad is cnt do franchise
I haven't played an NFL game for a few years, and I had a craving to play again. I enjoy the full experience of playing football: Quarterback, receiver, defense, special teams; the whole thing. With this Madden, (and possible others, I don't know) in "Career" mode, you create your player, (i.e. QB, WR, DE, etc.) and you can only play that character. During games, if you play defense, you only play defense. You have to hope that the offense can score points. As the QB, you throw the ball, and hope for the AI to catch the ball. No control of the receiver, or the punter, or the kicker. This game lost all of its fun within 10 minutes of starting. I sent it back, and never looked back.
When I first came across Madden 13 it came to my attention that critic out there was raving over the new and improved "infinity engine". With these real time Physics the possible outcomes were "endless". The collisions were "authentic", and the gameplay was rendered "nicely" with the addition of this new system. I come to find out the infinity engine is nothing what the critics and trailers made it out to be. It was unfinished garbage if you ask me. They haven't mastered the art of physics yet, and quite frankly, that's really sad for EA. It doesn't surprise me at all that EA was voted the worst company in America. Players don't wrap up to tackle, they seem to be mindless rag dolls that run into each other. They have so many bugs about the game and those minor details in the movements of the players that really gets you to question your next purchase. The infinity engine is not real simulation football! IT'S A LOAD OF BS FROM THE DEVELOPERS! They have cool features in the game that has nothing to do with gameplay, but come on, when it comes down to it people want good gameplay. It's time for 2K to make another football title.
