Just the Infinite Engine ALONE makes this game a 7+ Review. I loved Franchise mode and fantasy drafting etc but i also love Connected Careers i think its a interesting addition to the Madden series and i think in the next 1-2 years they will re-add the Fantasy Drafting and etc. You guys need to remember this game is a step FORWARD to a new and better Madden year in and year out. You guys need to think ahead first then the present after cause this game is gonna get better with time.
No superstar or franchise mode! they call them connected careers. the "superstar" is pretty cool to play, but the "franchise" is and has been terrible for last past couple years. What happened to the days where you determined ticket pricing, concessions and built your own stadium. Now we get guys looking liking clumsy jelly sticks falling all over each other.
Decent game, but they have a lot of work to do if they want to keep the avid Madden Fans out there.
Title says it all. While the commentary is much better (no Colinsworth = huge improvement), it's very limited when players switch teams. The gameplay is closer to NCAA, which in my opinion is much better/more fluid.
That said, the franchise mode is a mess. No drafting of teams, player tendencies and team tendencies don't work properly. Contracts are a bit messy. For what I play the game for, I wasn't overly impressed.
