I was disappointed that they didn't make an NCAA Football 13 for the Vita, but this makes up for it. The graphics are great, the controls are perfect (tapping your receivers to pass the ball, motion sensor field goals and kick-offs, etc.), and the online should be awesome. If you're a Madden fan like me, then you've probably been searching for videos about it on the web. Either way, you'll be happy to know that the physics are enhanced to make it not so unrealistic. No more "super linebackers", or "warping footballs" (if you don't know what a "warping football" is, it's when the football is going in one direction, then moves straight to the receivers hands, as if it had warped.). But what I'm REALLY excited for, is the Madden Ultimate Team. I really, REALLY hope they include this.The online experience looks great too. And I've been hearing rumors that there's cross play, between Vita and PS3 system owners. Whether or not this is true, if you're looking forward to this as much as I am, message me on PSN. My PSN is HyperMumbo, by the way. See you around!
Rated 8 out of 10 by pxcozzol PS Vita Firmware Update Kills the Game
The latest PS Vita Firmware Update 3.5 makes this game crash. Sometimes you get frozen video and sound OK. Sometimes you get ERROR and restart. I am part of a forum discussing this. There is no gamer solution and no vendor solution. Unless SONY fixes this, nobody should buy this.
Rated 9 out of 10 by nsjaywalker Best on the go football game
Madden 13 is the first and so far only football game on the vita. This gives this franchise more buys since this is the only option for quality on the go football. Thankfully, it delivers. The sad thing is it does not include connected carrers or ultimate team like the console versions. Instead, it contains the original madden modes. Franchise is the same thing you saw on Madden 12 with updated rosters. Superstar is also much the same except you can take a picture of yourself to use as your player card. The gameplay plays much like the PS3 version. The touch screen can be used to draw hot routes while the SIX-AXIS controls aim your kicks, i hate that because you can't change it.
-Traditional Franchise and Superstar modes with tiny new features
-Great HD graphics
-Madden Moments are same as consoles
-Kicking can be annoying
-Not that much good use of the vita's features
Rated 0 out of 10 by bembmx Played the demo.
I tried out the demo today on my vita, It was not a bad game. I am not a game reviewer so ill try to just keep it simple. The graphics on the cut scenes are amazing they are ps3 quality. But the graphis on the field while playing...a little better then psp. The diff (and its been awhile sense I have played madden on psp) the game play seems to be better the moving and over all playing seems improved the graphics on the other hand are not what I would have expected. I do like the game and will be buying it but I will say this is a mix of a port of psp and ps3 its not the same madden 13 you will play on ps3 or 360. One thing I did notice that I like is that you can use the touch screen to make a custom route when you want to. I did not play around with the controls to much and cant comment on the tackle or anything like that because well I dont play defense very well.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Madcustomer Lets Hope Its Better Than The PSP Vers
The Psp version was decent 6/10. It was decent due to the fact of its online multi player performance, the onli multi player was eventually stripped of which began in madden 10. Its online cababilities were horrible, if you or your opponent switched off the WLAN switch ina mid online infastructure game he and/or you wouldn't get the win. It was bogus, how you would play a complete game then your opponent would do that and you wouldn't recieve the win. Also, it was very laggy, wether your connection is 100% to 10% it would be a 2-3 second delay. Which was why for the past 3 years ea has not allowed online cappabilities for hand held systems. Lets see if they will step it up, if so this would be a catch. But if its another Franchise only game, well 40$ is way to much.
Rated 4 out of 10 by teeman Gets boring realllly fast!!
When i first got this it seemaed like a pretty good game. As I started playing it I started to uncover some of the negative sides of the game. First is the superstar mode. You cant do anything in this mode except play the games and the games glitch out all the time. You cant really edit your player,sign contracts. All you do is run, throw, or catch the ball. The franchise mode is ok. This mode has some problems as well. I do like the facty that you can play online in this game but it lags out alot like the entire game does!!!! I also have this game for xbox 360 and that game is so confusing that i dont even understand the whole franchise and superstar mode. I just hope that gamestop will let me return this game.
Rated 9 out of 10 by PharmTech Great start for a football game for vita!
Got the game yesterday and have played it about a dozen times. There are some lag during cut scenes. Gameplay is solid, and just enough modes to keep the game interesting and long lasting appeal. It seems to be madden 12 with 13 features on it. NO cross play for PS3, which is fine with me. Graphics are great and controls work well, except for tilt feature. Would recommend turning it off, load times aren't bad. For the money and portable football game I give it 4 1/2 stars out of 5. Hopefully they will come out with a patch for the lag issue. If you have vita I would pick this one up!
Rated 8 out of 10 by docz OK game
Well got this for the vita ,the price was little hi i felt.Wasnt sure what to expect for madden,as havent liked the last ones they came out with on handhelds...this in my opinion is the best in the madden series on the handheld yet,better graphics,and animation ,and defintetly better player realizism..hey that looks like who its suppose to ,good job finally,..but they dont have much going on with the fans...if they had some kind of fan and mascot type stuff going on like the college football games ,be pretty sweet..anyways nice football game its worth getting
