First off I have to say to those who are implying that there is no franchise mode cause well......THERE IS!!!! I mean this years madden is more realistic you have to do more as a coach not just make unrealistic trades and blow out the cpu by 40 no u have to play like its the real thing. Second the graphics are not the same but not super improved neither, still look a little like robots but the right step is taken in the right direction commentary pretty much the same but i really dont care for it.Lastly I love the fact that when u play online u cant just throw the ball all game and expect to win this year it has to be like the real thing i, mean u can favor the pass but sooner or later real madden players catch on quickly and if u cant run then ur in trouble also i love that there is no defensive player jumping out of the air from nowhere without looking and intercepting the ball BIG IMPROVEMENT this year all in all i love this madden it seems more realistic to me but i can understand for those who are not real madden fans who dont like the game cause this year its more realistic than last year and thats saying something cause i literally put madden 12 in the trash!!!!So what does that tell u.....oh yeah there is the physics engine needs improvement but its workable.
Everyone's on here crying over draft classes and import when they've known this since NCAA came out. NCAA was reprocessed stuff for use of a far better word and they give it an 8. Madden reinovates everything and they give it 1s all over the place. Yes connected careers does take aspects out of the original franchise, the fantasy draft is gone but what true say ravens fan would want big ben as their teams qb? To me sounds like a bunch of complaining over nothing people didn't already know.
