Bad

Madden Down the Toilet

I have been playing Madden since 1989. This is, by FAR, the worst Madden I have ever played. The new graphics engine is horrible and it is very "clunky". NCAA Football is much smoother. It is so slow on Madden in comparison.

No Franchise Mode?! RETURNED!

don't get me wrong - it's still a fun game. Graphics are decent and gameplay is relatively smooth and realistic. However, one crucial thing is missing: Franchise Mode.

Yes, you can do something called "Connected Career" and pick Coach Mode and it's pretty much like franchise mode except you have so much more responsibilities and decisions to make. Another drawback is your can't use custom rosters in this mode. I used to love to create myself as a QB for the Cowboys and then take them thru season by season. Now I have to do this Connected Career Coach Mode game with Tony Romo. Sigh.

Also, the officiating is awful. I get called for facemasks when I can clearly see on the replay that my defender NEVER put his hands near the opponents helmet. I also get a lot of out of bound/in bounds discrepencies. Even after challenging and CLEARLY seeing that the opponent caught the pass out of bounds, the officials will rule it inbounds and I'll lose a timeout. Half of the time, I can't even call challenge. It just disappears as an option.

Again, it's overall still a very entertaining game. But after all the things I've listed, I'm ready to return it.

No franchise mode(don't give me that coach bs either, No college imports or draft. I have seen people call the points system RPG like, No, No it's not.

Physics engine that causes goofy bs moments constantly such as legs spinning 360 degrees and tripping over grass.

Madden, Thank God I removed you from my Amazon list and got you from gamefly.
