I usually buy my sports games every 2 years, and this was year 2 for me so I bought this game. But I rent every year. It was different enough from 11 for the purchase. But it is still pretty glitchy and sloppy. The passing game is much more easy and fun to use. There are new animations like always that are cool. The presentation is much improved and the score updates are totally awesome. I don't know if it's worth a buy though over 12. Only reason I bought it is because I skipped last years. Anyway, it's worth a rent, but you might want to wait until 14 when they introduce the new tackling/physics.
My second game in Dynasty mode crashed just after i won the game while waiting for the final menu. I also found selecting plays slower for some reason and the main menu movement lags about 2 seconds. Add in the fact that you cant export or create draft clases for Madden i wont keep it despite the $20 savings through gamefly.
I really wanted to like it more but i give it a 7. The passing game is better with more control but not enough to place it over last years version for me. Thanks gamefly for saving me $$!
They tweek the passing and it is da bomb. The graphics is about the same but it's still worth trading in the last one. Also the in game ESPN scoring update is pretty neat. The heisman feature seems kind of cheesy to me but others might fun with it. They also upgaded the recruiting in the dynasty mode were you can scout prospects before you start recruiting. There's some other stuff but go get it!
