Rated 6 out of 10 by joosie All the improvements ruined the gameplay!!...
First off this game is garbage. Why would you add all of these features only to disrupt or forget about the gameplay. trust me I love the fact that you got rid of the suction, but Madden 11 with the suction was the perfect game, it was smooth gameplay. This years edition feels more like arcade style football and lacks the smooth gameplay from years past. All the features you guys added at EA are nice but if I had my pick NCAA is ten times better than this garbage. What is it with the CPU defense, they have Shaq as linebackers cuz you cant play a game without throwing numerous picks, the DB's when you are on D do not jump for picks, I dont understand it. My suggestion is stick with college, its hard not to throw a pick on there to but the gameplay is way better. I try my hardest to play a franchise and never throw a pick, get 300 yds passing, get 100 yds with my running back. Good luck with the no pick part, use Tom Brady and I gurantee you will end up with at least 20 picks !!!

Well...Madden didn't really change as much as I though it would from 10 to 11. Really all they did was add some better graphics and add some online features. This year it looks like they focused on the offline part by adding cold and hot streaks, new warm ups and broadcast, and camera angles. They've also made some changes with the menu and scouting which hasn't changed enough. The graphics aren't great, but aren't bad and hopefully this one finally changes that. The animations have also been varied since last year...it got reptitive. As for the online, they better help out those who have bad connections or there's going to be some very bad games. The only bad thing so far about the game is the cover. Peyton Hillis? Really? The guy was great last year filling in for Cleaveland but started to wear down at the end of the year from all the big hits he took. Why didn't they select Tom Brady or Clay Matthews or someone who was on a good team that made the playoffs.
Rated 7 out of 10 by Milkface1234 Ehh I've seen better Madden games.....
This is supposed to be true to the game right? At least to EA Sports and Tiburon it is. But there are still MANY MANY things lacking! Superstar mode has changed very little to not at all in the past 2-3 madden games. It feels like it needs something new. How about you change the camera angle! Franchise I can't complain about thought! With all of the new features in it like my 2 favorites, FA Bidding and Rookie scouting. The commentary STINKS! CHRIS COLLINSWORTH ANNOYS THE HECK OUTTA ME!!!! For example, he will say "Larry Fitzgerald, always gets the job done hes probably one of the best Quarterbacks in the league!" WHAAAT!!?? Isn't he a WR!? LOL! I LOOVE the graphics though! Best I've seen in a madden title. I haven't touched much of the online except for Ultimate team, which is fun at first, but then gets old and becomes a habit. Overall madden 12 doesn't have that true authentic feel I've been looking for. Its good but not nearly as good as It could be.
Rated 4 out of 10 by Siilent12 Madden is dying!
Truthfully I would not recommend anyone to buy this game. All and all the game is decent and its playable, but I think there are some major issues. To start with the biggest problem that I have is superstar mode. This is the worst career ode out of all the sport franchise games out there. For starters why do I get penalized for the mistakes that my team mates make. I should get the skill points that i earn and not get docked for what they do not do. Secondly there is no challenge to this mode. I can get my player up to 99 overall in a season. My second problem with this game the announcer crews. All they seem to do is just repeat things over and over and they say the same thing for every player. It is horrible. The only thing I can see that is good about this game is franchise mode, and it seems like it the only part of the game they even took their time on. Everyone who wants to buy this game go ahead if you like, but I wish I would have never spent the money to buy this game. I will probably trade this game very soon.
Rated 8 out of 10 by GatorNationLife Good but not good enought
Dont get me wrong this is a big improvement from Madden 11. If you still have Madden 11 and not sure about Madden 12, let me tell you right now that you will not be dissapointed with Madden 12. Madden 12 has excelent graphics and a way better franchise mode. One thing that bothers me are the commentaters. Please bring back John Madden for commentary, you dont relize if they bring him back there will be so much people that are going to buy Madden 13. Now what happend to the extra point. Even though they had bad commentary and said the samethings over and over doesnt mean you should take it out of the game because this wont attract much gamers as it wish. But besides the commentary and the extra point and it wont bother you "Go Buy The Game". If you guys really want new commentaters you will have to spread my word and it may actually happen. But go get the game and you will understand but you wont be throwing your money away.
Rated 1 out of 10 by greatgta THIS GAME SUCKS
I wanted a good new madden game since i haven't bought a game since madden 09 , so i look around and the reviews said that this game was good, LIE, First off, The Career seems as if Ea spent 10 minutes on it , For one thing you automatically a starter, for people who play NCAA , or any other sports game you know what i mean by its fun to be on the road to being a starter but your automatically starter, also , if you carry over from NCAA 12 , ITS STUPID , in NCAA i won 2 Heisman and broke every quarterback record in my school and in NCAA records . all that and i'm selected in the 5th round . their is no effort on there part, also the franchise mode is also bad. The game play just feels awkward , the passing is weird, all the camera angles are just bad , everything about is bad, even the music track list sucks. if i was you i would go for either madden 13 or madden 25 because you will be miserable with madden 12

well i am disappointed that the commentary is stale no nfl facts or commentary about last weeks game or future game. Last years game was neat the superbowl victory but how about announcing the superbowl mvp. i like gameflow to mix up the play calling however the commentary is boring. i wanted to see upgrades in the running and passing games for example if i am tom brady and i threw behind branch does he go down to get the ball does he go back for the ball if i lead the receiver will he dive for it if i throw it over the receivers head will they jump for it or are they afrais to go over the middle. As far as running backs do they run between the tackles do they wait for the hole to open can they still high step stiff arm and spin i d like to see the running backs absorb the hit and keep going or get lower than the defender. the half time show is pretty interesting all these things need to be updated and you ll get as good as a game you can get i mean hey greenbay packers are yur superbowl champions the superbowl mvp is aaroon rogers those things should be announced
Rated 0 out of 10 by BigLock Sticking to '07 Again
Gameplay of Madden has drastically headed on a downward spiral for this original fan. I'm still playing '07 (ps2 version on my 80gb PS3) as the controls are exactly what they should have stopped at for "hardcore" settings. The graphics aren't the most realistic but they get the job done. I don't need to see the sweat dripping from my players' facemask, nor do I need all the extra pre-game mumbo-jumbo which is a huge waste of resources by ea sports. The stadiums are beautiful and the dynasty mode with franchise is the bees knees. Stop wasting money/time of trying to make this the most realistic "experience" and give me some FOOTBALL!! Take controls back to '07 days, make the stadiums as beautiful as they are now, and tone back the graphics just a little bit and voila, the #1 selling football franchise is back on top. OR... please make roster updates available for the '07 PS2 version of madded. Thank you
Rated 7 out of 10 by nightclover77 GOOD,BUT NOT GREAT!!!
Madden has pretty much became what you expect out of your football games lately.This madden I found to be good if you like football,but not great if you like the old days.The roster, you will have to update because of the delay in the lockout.It's not hard to do just go online in the game and you'll find the update rosters section.The fact that you have cut days are pretty intresting,I usually never play the preseason games but if you do play them you get to see how good your 2nd are 3rd string players may are may not be.I also enjoyed the fact that at the end of the season if you get bored of your team you can always change teams "something you couldn't do in previous madden's".The sounds are good and the graphic's are good.Game play,well same ol same ol.But overall if your a football fan,what else do you have to choose from?If only we could get roster update's on the older madden's.
