Not Impressed

For all the hype about the new system and graphics, they continue to miss the mark. Countless times I dumped a screen pass to my receiver in the bottom and, although he had plenty of room to turn and gain a couple, he ran instead right at the defender off to the side losing yards. Instead of the RB just running into his own guys and going no where, now he trips over them and falls down. At the end of the play it looks like Blitz with players falling all over from bumping into each other. I cringed a few times during hits and after as the players bent in places that weren't supposed to bend and/or more than they should be bending. Fix the game first, then polish it! stop polishing garbage.

I really don't care how perfectly you've mastered every players face. Why'd you take out franchise mode?? I can't edit players and make my team cool. If i create a player that i can be a gypsy with at all of his stats at 99 i can only use him in play now mode. Why do you suck so bad EA???

Sadly this game is a quick send-back. I have been a Madden covet-er since my first experience in 2001. And since that time the game franchise has made many large leaps in regards to the gameplay, features, and graphics. It was getting really good right up until about 2009 when the features started changing. The game quickly began heading towards an online-heavy audience and leaving many of us "offline enthusiasts" left wanting. Understandably this is how extra monatary assest are obtained but it almost betrays the convenient user. They almost had me fooled in 2012 when we saw shades of old Madden re-appear, but unfortunately the men/women behind Madden got greedy again and took away many of the features that are not just loved by regular players, but by ALL players.

Until the garunteed return of Fantasy Draft, standard Franchise mode, and competent in-game analysts (seriously? Simms and Nantz? talk about going cheap) I will not rent, let alone purchase, this series any longer.

Here's to hoping Madden gets a clue, or 2K makes a comeback!
