Rated 7 out of 10 by bc4456 Good game but Needs Work
Possitive: First of all, Frachise mode is awesome. The Stats are mostly right, and the gameplay is pretty good. They have added some cool new features such as the "Extra Point" the new weekly recap show in Franchise Mode. Also alot of new graphics have been added such as being able to see fans buying mercandise, tailgating, and cheering. Also If there is a questionable first down the "Chain Gang" will come out to measure. The Start Menu is quick and easy to understand. Negative: Please, do some work to Superstar Mode. NCAA does a great job and when you get ready to transfer your "Superstar" to Madden it's absolutely no fun. Bring back Interviews, and the ability to Hire your own Agent. And PLEASE make the Superstar Quarterback View more like the Normal QB view. Some of us still like to play "Superstar" mode, and if EA can bring that back to life they'll have a great Game. Overall a good game worth buying, but not if you're just buying for "Superstar" mode.
Rated 10 out of 10 by itsallabouttheu Finally got it right!!!
Back in 1994 is the first time I played the Madden series and it was on Super Nintendo, fell in love with the series and bought every single year up to 2001. I have rented everyone, each year, hoping they improved. When the Xbox 360 and PS3 came out I was stoked to try Madden and it was again a disappointment, until now. This game is great! There are a few bugs, obviously, but other than that the game is finally as real as it gets. The speed of the game is what I really noticed first. Its regular football speed, not 200 mile per passes the game used to have. The pocket passing is second to none and the tackling is 150% better than the last few years. The only thing that bothers me so far about the game is the fact that some instant replays and other plays have the players feet and body going into walls and the ground, which is kind of annoying. BUT overall, if you have been waiting for a decent football game on the next gen, its here, in Madden 2010.
Rated 8 out of 10 by That_dude A lot of Superstar features gone
I have been buy the Madden games steadily since 2000 and had a few before then. I am kind of disappointed in this years game. I am a big Superstar mode player and I am sad that they took out so many features for it. I enjoyed getting to do the workouts and drills when you created a person and your ratings be based mostly off of that. This year you just get 100 points and pick and choose what happens. Just playing in Superstar mode just seems to be taking a step back to before they implemented the drills into the superstar. You don't choose your agent, no emails, they kept the IQ test for some reason, there is no NFL Compound before the draft either. Overall for Superstar mode I am very disappointed in this years. Madden 08 is still my favorite. As for Franchise mode, I don't play much of it, but it seems they put more into the Franchise mode than anything so that is good. So overall it's a decent game, but could definitely have been a lot better.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Islandspook Nice Madden but tired of cartoon crowds
I've taken off a few years from Madden because the changes were minimal. Renting was enough. I did the same this year and I'm tempted to buy it. However, I'm disappointed that the realism of the game is a affected (at least to me) when you see sloppy stadiums and fans that are cartoonish. Check out MLB The Show to see how the crowd really enhances the realism of the game (fans walking up and down the aisles, fans walking around the concourse, beach balls in the stadium). EA please check out MLB The Show to see what a crowd and stadium should look like. It's frustrating to finally have a good Madden, feel like your in the game and see the cardboard cutout, cartoon crowds with empty aisles. Use the 1080 for the easy things EA. Until they get this easy detail up to par I will continue to rent and continue to rate the graphics low. Good try EA but poor attention to detail, especially when making a game for a high-resolution console like the PS3.
Rated 10 out of 10 by m@tt the best pro football game so far!!!!!!!
this game is the best madden so far and i strongly recommened it to sports fans. it has diamond like graphics,good controls, and great game play. at first before i bought this game i thought it would just be a waste of green but then i tried the demo online and they put some new features like, Pro Tak which means they changed the way you tackle a player but its better!!! you still hit with the HITSTICK but when you use it; it slows down time and makes it look more realistic. another is called FIGHT FOR THE FUMBLE where you have to try your best to recover the fumble its fun. another is FIGHT FOR EVERY YARD< if you like running the ball LISTEN IN when you try to get tackled by a defender then more and more defenders will come in and try to drop you on the ground but if you flick the hit stick back and forth then your RB will keep pumping his feet which will give you more yards!! well i hope i was usefull.. get the GAME!!!!!

Rated 8 out of 10 by maggot4ever best madden yet
ok. so we all know the best football game of all time is nfl 2k5 right? and people are always complaining about how itll never be that goo? well, their right, but madden 10 is second next to that. the new tackling and fight for the fumble is a very nice addition. the updated teams and players add to the mix but are not as new as 11. i will never, i repeat NEVER like the commentators. they sound drunk and i just wish they would shut up. whenever it comes to game music i always hate how its mostly rap. but madden 10s soundtrack left me very satisfied, with some amazing artists like slipknot, korn, killswitch engage, and system of a down. all in all, madden 10 is a good game if you want cheap game other than 11, and is third best football game ever.(1st and 2nd are 2k5 and ncaa football 11, i personally think ncaa is better than madden.) final score:8.75 p.s if you wanna play me, my psn id is madness_x4.
Rated 7 out of 10 by lil B 2 Come On EA
This is a decent Madden not the best but it is ok i love the pregame you can see people tailgating and everything.I also like the the faces this year they are starting to look more like the actual player.Ok here goes the bad. I really don't like how easy the computer is they are so easy to beat its just ridiculous.I truely hate how slow the ball leaves the quarterback's hands its so easy to jump the pass and take a pick back to the house. Last but not least Why did they destroy the Superstar mode It went from a valuable part of the game to completely unimportant. Overall it is a lilttle better but not much i want to see a better one next year. Or i might have to call up 2k and see if they can bring back 2k football b/c that game was great they were light years ahead of Madden they would own them if they wouldn't have been bullied by the EA Madden Executives and been bought out. Come Back 2K Football
Rated 9 out of 10 by TOPHINATORMAN Need a good sports game but need it cheap?
I got this game a number of months after it's release and had been playing Madden '09 which was my first sports game on the PS3. I was satisfied with it but then I got Madden '10 and was blown away! Players and the overall movement is starting to smooth out- finally. The graphics are vibrant in their colors and overall look good, except for the cars outside of the stadium; I just find them to be humorous and they did not affect my rating of this game at all. The stat system for each players ability has been updated significantly. Example: quarterback's passing ability is now based on long, medium, and short range along with play action, in the pocket, etc. So if you don't want to fork over $50+ for Madden 12 and don't want to get Madden 11 (It looked horrible. Even my friend who has gotten EVERY Madden game passed up on it.) Madden 10 for it's cheap price is exceptional for a sports game.
Rated 0 out of 10 by AP_For_President The read deal! YES!!
Ok people get ready for a great Madden year. After spending sometime with the demo I have to say... I am eager to play the real deal. From the new stadium sound, hearing all the fans yelling and screaming made me feel like I was at the game. To the cut scenes and gang tackles, I really enjoyed my time with the Madden demo. I own a PS3 have a 52inch tv with surrond sound and it looks and plays great. Yes the game feels much slower than the previous games however everything just feels more put together. Keep in mind that they have drasticly reduced ratings which makes a key injury or trade or free agent pickup more meaningful to your team. Look for me Online PS3 ID AP_for_president beat the number 9th player in the world last year with the vikings. 200 wins with 70 loses. I will beat pretty much anyone who reads this post. Send me a freind invite if you want to get in on my league.
