Madden NFL 13
NO MORE WAISTED TIME PLAYING FPS. MADDEN 13<ALL GAMES. I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS TYPE OF MADDEN TO ARISE AND IT'S FINALLY HERE...WOW!!! PSN TAG (WDJ21) GET@ME. 4TH AND 3 PUNT IS MY ONLY RULE. I LIKE TO REWARD THE DEFENSE. PLAY REAL FOOTBALL AND HAVE FUN...!!! THIS IS THE MADDEN THAT WILL GET THAT 9.5/10 or EVEN 10/10 FINALLY.
Not the Madden I expected.
I have played Madden for year an I have loved them. They really have been great games. I can't say that this year. The Madden Moments graphics, and play now are amazing. I really enjoyed both parts of that. I really can deal with only have the instrumental music in the background or even the new layout. What I can not put up with is the fact that they made this Career Mode garbage. Really if you are any kind of Madden fan you can actually agree you loved the fact that you could transfer you NCAA roster over allow you to pick up your favorite players for next year. This is not true anymore. You also appreciated the fact that you were not forced to practice every time that you play or that you are not playing some Elder Scrolls game were you have to use XP to level or or make players better. I also can not deal with the fact that it has become so difficult to trade player that I think I might need to call in Stephen Hawking to help me figure it out. If Madden is smart and does not want to lose anymore players they will switch back next year to the original plan. If not like many people that have listed reviews before me Madden better prepare to lose a lot of money next year.
Madden 13-ONLINE PLAY ONLY?? and u have to pay????
me and my friends foe over ten years have played Madden royaly, but once again you disabled any kind of game modes were you can play w/you friends in person. I know u think the internet is the way to go. But when it comes down to it, bragging rights only matter when u see the person u playing infrony of you!!!!! IM SCHOCKED YOU WOULDNT let us play more than one controlled player/coach for season modes. yeah great, im 7yrs old and love playing sport games by myself???? whats happened at EA. i hope a petion will be filed. as for game, i refuse to by after buying it every year. il just wait to FiFa 13 comes out.........
its time to get down and gritty touchdown ive been waiting for this for a long time coming an finally its here yes
What on earth did they do with the franchise mode. Connected careers suck. I've played madden since the ps1 days and this is the worst franchise mode. They finally improve the commentary/gameplay and then get rid of the usual franchise mode. You cant edit or create players, no fantasy draft. I dont feel like I have control of my franchise. EA should create an immediate update to address this. I've seen alot of feedback addressing the same issue. Overall the game is good, but I love the franchise mode, thats why I spend 60 bucks annually on madden. The navigation screen is a bit confusing as well. I dont mean to rant on and on but this just kills the mood for me sadly. I have stuck by madden for years while other folks have trashed talked it. This is my first negative review. Hopefully they address this issue cuz if not, ima go get a used copy of madden 12 which would be a shame.
Huge let down
The actual game play on the field is MUCH better than previous years. Unfortunately, EA ruined the game by changing franchise to Connected Careers. EA made this a game for the casual gamer that isn't a football fan (an attempt to bring in new fans). Connected Careers lets you control ONE coach or ONE player. You can no longer control multiple teams from one console. You can no longer import rosters from NCAA. You can no longer conduct a fantasy draft. You can no longer alter ANYTHING on the rosters. These things could almost be overlooked, but you can't make a trade for any halfway decent players on Connected Careers because the computer will refuse to trade anyone younger than 28 years old or with overall rating of 80. This game was made for online users only (offline users don't get the same updates). I've had the game about a week and I am already bored with it. If you only play a single game at a time, this is the game for you.
So disappointed in EA and this game.
EA has completely ruined this game. My opinion, do not waist your money if you are a big Madden fan in the past. There is no Franchise mode, you can not edit roster at all and i mean at all, not even changing a jersey number, you can not create a player for your career, just play now is all. The game is still ok for online play but single player is seriously ruined. Career mode is stupid. you cant control both sides of the ball if you play as a player and not a coach and that means leaving the computer ai to run your offense if you are a defensive player or letting it control your defense if you are a offensive player and lets just say the ai is horrible. I know its hard to believe the kids that go on and on about how bad it is but believe me, i am 29 and have been playing madden for years and EA has tried something new with 2013 and ruined the single player experience. I have had it for 2 days and i am trading it in today. Single player, dont waist your money, Online player, its ok.
EA tricked me again...
As always EA says this is a different game. Yea it is a bit different BUT it still has the same problems. The players are not as stiff BUT the slightest touch can knock your player down...annoying. The player movement is about the only thing they seemed to change. The one thing they didn't change is the picks. Yes a LB can pick off a pass BUT when a LB jumps like he's Durant and picks you off...c'mon man. Another thing is I love how when there is 14 seconds and I trying to smash the X button so I can pick another play, doesn't happen. I'm watching players walk around the field. EA also said there are no predetermined plays...right I believe that one. EA just makes a couple of tweaks every year and tell people IT'S A NEW GAME. It's the same thing every time. I'm done with EA! This is the last time I will be buying Madden. They have been going down hill for awhile. Madden, Live, and Battlefield. All use to be great games....NO MORE! 2K all the way.
The new physics engine. It's o.k. The players seem real goofy. If you like to run inside it's alot tougher. If you bump anyone on the line you begin to stumble. After the play, players fall all over the place. The crowd still looks fake. After touchdowns players run right through the stands and disapear. The referees will sometimes blow plays dead after fumbles without players being touched. The passing engine isn't new, they've been had it. The passing game is real inconsistent. The widereceivers are alot harder to control . Throwing into single coverage is more of a challenge. The defensive backs catch better than wideouts and are more aggressive when the ball is in the air than wideouts. The anouncers are a bit redundant and even of base at times. The game takes forever to load. The game never shuts down properly. The controls to the game are not user friendly. All in all I'd say Madden has been a disapointment on the Playstation 3 and Xbox360 platforms. In my opinion the best Madden was 07. I really wish EA had a serious competitor with the NFL because they always let gamers down.
Great Idea ? You Decide
To me madden seems to be the same every year. All they do is make a couple tweaks and say the game is all new and improved making it out to be a huge game. But really its the same game better graphics new cover and a few tweaks.In madden 12 franchise mode they did free agent bidding, scouting, player roles and how they will act on the field like if their clutch that's it. In superstar mode they changed how you progress and player traits, that's about it. they need to do different things instead of doing the same thing and just changing it a little bit the next year. i personally wish they would change superstar mode. They could have it as an open world, but not like GTA. have your person be able to walk around the stadium, go to a training exercise u want to do. Talk to the players or coaches. Say you have 1 year under your belt and u don't get much playing time, so you go to the coaches and talk to them, u try to talk them in to letting you on the field more, or maybe u make things worse and the coach doesn't let u play and now dislikes u. Then when it comes to game day u get to walk around the field getting ready stretch out and talk to the players, coaches, or staff. Then when the game starts u sit on the bench watch the game, or get on a bike to help keep u loose. If u aren't playing go up to the coach and ask him to let u in next play, he might say yes or tell u to get back on the bench, it just depends on how u your player is. If your player is good and makes some money u can buy some new equipment. To me that is 1 way to make superstar mode a great and in depth experience. I think this is something that could change madden.
