I'll make this quick. I've player Madden for over 20 years. This game literally meant the world to me. But over the last 3-5 years the game has gotten worse and worse. They tried to make it so anyone can pick it up without knowing jack about football or Madden and its been downhill ever since. Worst part is the graphic! Its 2013 but the graphic look the exact same since 2008 its pathetic! Gameplay is slow and clunky and very rigged for the offense. Playing offline is a waist of time because of all the bugs and glitches and overall you can clearly tell the game was slapped together while they slave away on the next gen title. EA needs to leave the NFL to the professionals like 2K sports so they can make a real simulation and not a cheap arcade game. DO NOT BUY

This game is absolutely horrid. Its clunky, slow, and unbelievably favored for offense. I played online with a guy who ran the exact same play for all four quarters and hit the same two recievers every single time regardless of coverage on All-pro difficulty and he never had a pick, never had a dropped pass and shredded the defense. It reminds me of Madden 95. Terrible game folks. SOMEONE PLEASE MAKE A FOOTBALL GAME TO END EA's career.

So much potential and so many improvements can't overcome simple fatal flaws. Primarily, the always-on automatic instant replays slow the game waay down. All menus in-game and out seem sluggish and slow to respond. There is no smooth, seamless interface that we so on earlier generations of consoles.
