I made a vow to not rent or buy madden 13 because of some of the reviews on here. It seems all they focused on was the bad things and they didnt talk about the good things! The good things this game has to offer are twitter feeds but in the game, thats simply amazing!!! Plus the top stories including rumors, trades, fa signings, injuries and basiclly anything important in the game. I feel like EA has finally gone back to the glory days when player mode was more about the player, and less about the mode. You know, when you moved from appartment to two story mansion!!! Although you cant do that much stuff you can do more than probably the last 5-6 years. Its great in my eyes.
i like everything about the game play. great graphics, very realistic. unfortunately, the menu is a disaster. i tried to play several of the different modes but i got so confused and frustrated in the menus, i ended up quitting. every dead end was met with a $2.99 to $19.99 in game purchase option. i should be able to play for several hours on the initial $60, one would think. if you plan to play online, plan to drop another $50 at least. in the end, i would not suggest this game if you are a classic game player and don't wish to do everything online. i have owned every madden since 1994 but it has evolved into an online money grab. too bad.
