EA released this game way too early. They nowhere near had all the bugs worked out. It crashes more than any game I've ever played. You los your progress every time it crashes too. The game crashes so much it drives me cazy! IF EA ever releases an update to fix this, it'll be an awesome game! But until then, it a complete waste of your time and money.
It's no secret, the Madden series has struggled to perform ever since it became the only NFL game on the market. Considering the Vita version is essentially a slightly stripped down port of an already problematic game, it was fighting an uphill battle from the get go. All the things that has plagued the series through Madden 12 are here. Once you get over the, hey this is pretty cool I'm playing Madden on a mini Playstation feeling, reality sets in and you realize the game just isn't very good.
Looks like EA needed to leave this one in the oven for a few more months. The core gameplay is there, but the periphery is a mess. Moving between menus is a pain, and makes the game nearly unplayable. Once you are on the field, it's good...but getting there, and doing all the things required of career mode is painful.
