I have been buying madden since 2001 every year and I can say I wont be buying this madden for anythign more then 30 or 40 bucks it just isnt worth it . I have a hard time to explain why I dont like the game I find it kind of boring... The coach mode/player mode just isnt fun . The coach mode is suppose to be the new franchise mode but I dont like havin to make up a coach. I find it to be a lot of work for nothing. The gameplay seems to keep gettin worse every year . The linebackers are just way to intuative. All in all its the only football game out there so I will buy it eventually because I love football so much but madden is a dying franchise while yet the new NHL 13 game is absolutly amazing. Maybe EA should fire the madden developers and put the NHL ones to make the next madden lol
I have to say I am not a fan of football but I do like sports games and have even owned a Madden title in the past. This one just seemed cheesy and sluggish compared to older titles.
Here is a laundry list of things I noticed:
1. Button presses in the menus take forever
2. Every time a player touches the group, grass clippings spray into the air and look ridiculous.
3. Must has been said about the new collision engine, but honestly it is horrible, you touch your own player and you hit the ground almost immediately, 10 of the opposing players touch you and it is like you are covered in teflon, you just slip away.
4. Removing franchise mode was a mistake. I thought I was going to like the new system, but I would take franchise mode in a heartbeat.
