Madden NFL 11
I will think that madden is going to be the most realistic game up to date. I wish they could give all the glitches away so the game wont freeze up like 2 seconds. Also I think when you win a game when the people come up to talk to the quarterback or the coach u should be able to talk back and say and just keep on talking until u want to quit. Also when you shake the other teams coach hand u should be able to say something. I think that would be a good feature and it would look and feel more realistic. Also like when u complete a mlb game u go into the lokerroom they should add that to madden. Also another good feature in the begging of the game when u see the quarter back getttin warmed up u should be able to control that person. That would also be a good feature. Also i think u should be able to talk to the fans before and ending of the game. That would be so awesome. But these are some of my decisions that i think if u put these features in the game people will want to buy the game.
Doesn't live up to Madden Hype
This game is pretty ridiculous in terms of a sports game. I say this because it means that a sports game is one you play excessively or over a long period of time. Not just one you can rent or get from Gamefly. The things that disappointed me most were that they offered costly downloads as a new option. That's not really an option for someone who doesn't have much money. The other thing; the gameplay is not the same. In game when you select a play, someone gives you advice and talks to you. I'm not sure if you can turn this off but the majority of madden gamers wouldn't prefer this. Other thing they wasted too much time trying to shorten the games by making a "Gameflow", and you can just rush through games. That's great. If you crave football games get either 08, 09 or 10. ESPN NFL 2k5 was the best one I played, but EA sports thought it was excellent and bought rights to the NFL game industry. This game isn't worth 60 dollars, nor your time if you were a big fan of the older madden games.
this game takes some skill
In this game most people dont like the fact that the defense is so hard and that the offense is so easy. The things is though that defense isnt easy. Defense is the this stopping the offense if the defense is bad then the offense can score all day. This is how football is played for the offense to score and the defense to try and stop them. The graphics are great little odd seeming but i really like them though. Also yes the announcers do sound really strange and need some work. not going to lie they really annoy me everytime you return a kick and they go and he was tackled AT THE 19!!!! and now they will start this drive from THE 19!!!!! like the 19 is some some like crazy sacred word but anyway this game is great. also another flaw is the audible system how you have to click like quick pass and all with A what if im playing someone on split screen and i want to fake them into thinking i audibled well now i cant unless i change the entire formation. all in all this game is great and i definately recomend any madden game
worst madden in a while
i have been playing madden for 15 and this is probably the worst one i have ever played.. on all madden it is almost impossible to play decent defence, or effectively run the ball. The computer breaks atleast 2 tackles everytime it touches the ball while if you break 2 tackles, you are lucky. Matt moore, the qb for the panthers broke a tackles from patrick willis, and then takeo spikes and ran the ball 20 yard before finally being stopped. and then i could not break 1 tackle with frank gore.. and that is just one example. It is also almost impossiblw to run as there defence is in the backfield as soon as i touch the ball. I realize i play on all madden and that it is more difficult but i have been playing on it for the past 10 years, this madden is just unrealistic. i wait all year for this game and it is very disapointing for it to be so unrealistic.i still love madden and will still continue to buy it but i am very disapointed in this years game.
Really Great Game
This game really improved from Madden 09 which seemed to never happen with celebration mode. Madden 10 was a great improvement from 08 and 09 but this game shows the absolute peak of football games. The new play selection is sort of dumb, it seems like the ask madden selection from old games. It is hard to play a quick game of football like it is to play a game of hockey. The reason Madden is good is because it lets you run the ball like a real running back. The running controls focus on the beating of defenders other than speed or straight into the line. The options that you have are limitless, people who doubt Madden games should play this and give it a try. It has came a very long way sence 2010. But the one thing I want to take up with the overall raters is, how is a quartarback with two superbowl rings and a should be superbowl MVP for a crazy two minute drive to win the game get rated lower than a quartarback who can't hold a snap and is focused on dating celebrities. But in anyway the game Madden 11 is a great game.
Minor details, making a big difference.
The madden brand we have all come to love and know, is making big strides to improve the game sights, sounds, and feel. Bringing in Gus johnson to announciate alongside keith Herbstreik was a great idea. The new audio lineup (Crazy Train, Zombie nation, etc.) was one of the top things on my list of To-Do's for the Madden team, and they have surpassed my expectations. Another thing that i was very frustrated about was Challenging Plays. When i challenge that the reciever was in bounds, it takes the challenge as "the spot of the ball". But the thing that topped my list is Running the Ball! I get so irritated when I go to run the ball and my lineman totally disperse on me and are tackling people not even in the way, which leaves me a sitting duck for the opposing big guys. All this has either been improved or needs to be. Another minor thing is Defense. I wsh when im playing defense that the offensive line vs. defensive line mathcup could be a little more real. I cannot say what to do, because it looks great as it is, but something is missing.
always a favorite
as usual the madden series is outstanding for football fans, alot of changes in the game this year; graphics a alot better (in HD) and the game play is about the same. One draw back about this game is that if your big on interceptions you will lose your mind on this game, the ball will hit great future hall of fame D-Backs right in the hands and they will not intercept it, regardless if your the type of gamer like myself that knows how to hit the right button at the right time to intercept vs knock it down. Another thing is the fact the the game tends to try to decide when it will try to beat the mess out of you, at points regardless of what you do, "supernatural" occurances happen like the last quarter of the game your up by 3 touchdowns and a poorly rated QB gets fired up and you get OWNED! All and all though I am very happy and highly recommend it. Oh yea, dont forget the NCAA 11 so you can get Mark Ingram in the draft early!
Great Madden Game
I really like the new Madden 11 game for the Xbox 360. I was thinking at first that why should I buy the new Madden if I already had or was going to re-buy Madden 10? Well, I'm glad I picked up Madden 11 instead. The graphics are incredible in this game. Just unbelievable to say the least. I'm an Eagles fan and after every touch down the Eagles score they play the fight song and the whole entire stadium sings it in real life. They actually do it in the game! I thought that was really really cool (same with the Jets). If your even thinking about getting Madden 11 I would have no hesitation in doing so, or if your friend has it go over and try it out. That's what I did and I thought it was pretty cool. But when you actually play it is incredible. The running game has really improved over Madden 10. I actually like running the ball now! Overall I think this is a great game and if your thinking about picking it up I would do so now.
You can't make it completely real! It's Great
I hate the people that complain that this game isn't realistic. This is as close as you are going to get for a while. What do you expect. Why I rated this a 10 is because others rated it so low. I would probably give it an 8.5 for real, but I love this game and it is my most played. I'm not a hardcore gamer, but when I get home from work I like to sit down and play madden. It's much better than Halo and those games. The audabling feature was changed, made it better but also kinda worse. The way the players react to getting hit is incredible. I mean the guy will limp if he hurts his leg. Come on! In my opinion this is the best Madden thus far, but they really messed one thing up. They made it so 5 year olds could play. Everything is over-explained and basically makes the offence dominate. I don't know what the other commenter was talking about when he said "I can't break tackles" I can't usually get tackled. But put it on a harder setting and you are good to go. CHANGE ONE THING FOR ME!!!!! RESTART BUTTON DURING GAME IN SUPERSTAR MODE!!!!!!!!!
Madden is Madden
Madden is almost the same thing every year, but this is old. So I rated it over how good it is for its year. Its one of the best Maddens though, you can fight for the ball in a fumble. The graphics are pretty rough, but they would've looked crystal clear in 2010. The game can practically last forever since there is so much different stadiums, teams, players, ect. Plus, you have to add they game modes: Franchise, SuperStar, UltimateTeam, ect. The soundtrack is AWESOME, it has better sound track than Madden NFL 12! I mean, it has Machine Head from Bush! Also you can make playlists, put them in order, everything you need for music in a football game (and any other sport game). But the gameplay could of done better with the kick offs, I mean, they kicked a fake onside kick in the Super Bowl! But they didn't have that... But it isn't that bad, it still is good enough to hold any Football fan for a couple of months for a new game.
