Madden NFL 12
Madden at its finest.
Madden NFL 12 is arguably the best in the Madden NFL series, for a lot of reasons. The imagery is so well put together, the game runs very smoothly, and the feel is really authentic, in a sense, it gives you the feeling of not only watching, but experiencing a real NFL game. The game is presented perfectly, the commentary is at superb level, and all-around, Madden NFL is just a great game.
No Online Code comes with the used game
I bought the used madden 12 for xbox 360 and couldn't play online because the online code was missing from the case?
Pros: - Franchise Mode - Really Fun - Decent Graphics - Gets really intense in games and you v friend/s - Music Cons: - Graphics could be better - Sound affects are good but there could be more (ex. More Crowd Emotion)
It is really lasting and the seasons are never getting old. The superstar is very fun. You can choose to be traded and you keep getting better
Amazing Game- Better Than Madden 13
I would definitely reccomend this game Franchise mode: 9.1/10 Fantasy draft makes it really fun. WAY BETTER THAN MADDEN 13 Complaints: make it more realistic: polish it, some rediculous catches, frequent fumbles by 90+ overall players. overall great game woiuuld reccomend
best madden ever!!!!
madden nfl 12 is so much better than last year. and last year's game is amazing. the graphics, gameplay and sound are perfect!!!! the game has the best madden soundtrack ever. franchise mode is better than all of the other ones put together. career mode isn't perfect but is still amazing. at $18 used and $30 new, the price is kind of a lot, but well worth the price!!!!
Not good for casual gamers
I am a very casual gamer, i play to just dominate the CPU and have a good time. If you are like me this is not the game for you, unless all you do is run the ball. This game is not for gamers who like to use the passing game. The pass coverage is way better in this game it is extremely hard to complete passes even with the sliders in your favor. If you are like me and play to have fun without a challenge, save your money.
I bought this after my madden 11 stopped working. It took me awhile to figure out the franchise features but once I did it is really fun. They won't let you scout and sim like in madden 11. You actually have to play the games week to week which actually helps you know who you are going to replace for next season. I like the cut days but sometimes they can be annoying. The sound is fun until the commentating happens and it can get repetitive. I haven't tried career mode yet but can't wait for it. Comparing it to Madden 13. Get 12. I've played it and it felt rushed, you can't edit players which is one of the reasons why I play madden and when you get hit sometimes the players would bend in funny ways when in real life you would get hurt. My opinion, buy madden 12 rent ncaa 12 and import a couple of the draft classes, that way if you are looking for a roster update their it is. Warning though if you do this most of the players will not end up on the teams that they are on this year. All in all it is a very cool game.
The Best Of Sports games for Xbox 360
It is one of the Greatest games ever with features like Franchise mode superstar mode career mode create a player create a team rookie challenge online play two controller play super bowl exhibition ITS PERFECT
An O.K. upgrade
This is my madden "upgrade" from madden 2010, simply for the sake of getting updated rosters (CAM NEWTON!) and the ugly fact that I can't afford madden 2013. It's a decent game, but there quite a few of annoyances that just shows how lazy E.A. can possibly be. -note that I will be referring to 2010 for reference, and all-pro mode- GAMEPLAY. The offense play is much better because its actually possible to throw to the sides without launching it out of bounds. The linebackers are little harder to read, but the deep defenders are much more tolerable. In 2010, I was forced to throw every pass quickly. Rushing is not as easy to exploit, so I appreciate the higher level of difficulty. The player motions are OK, but I definitely miss the "fight for the yard" pushes in 2010. Sometimes its annoying when you get tackled you go flying 5 yards back, so it's harder to "fall forward". Defense is a major downgrade, I assume that all-pro means that your players will go all-idiot on you and leave receivers WIDE open (despite high rated defense -__-). It's very difficult to counter this all the time by micro-managing every player to do this or that. I also have the problem with my defenders running past the ball-carrier, I guess no auto tackle is available like in 2010? "User" controlled defenders appear to run away from a rusher to a person that supposed to block them (like 2010). It has a very poor transition when you switch from one defender to another. For the sake of time I'll note a few other improvements and setbacks. Franchise is still a blast, (especially an effective fantasy draft and cut system) but custom teams appear to confuse the whole system. The stats of your custom team players don't even show up compared to the rest of league. The player graphics are very good and much improved, but the field grass looks like barf. I'm a player that sits around and most play franchise mode. Madden (again) suffers from user exploitation of the game in on-line mode and unrealistically nonsensical play calling (going for it on 4th down with 20 yards to go, then rage quitting). Play with your friends if you go online! Let me tell you why E.A. is lazy: Chris Collinsworth says the EXACT same things from 2010, line-for-line, seems completely disconnected with the other commentator (the audio level doesn't even match). Custom team logos are EXACTLY the same from madden 2006 (no joke). Missing audio from replays, and the most terrible and obnoxious soundtrack I have ever heard in any game. "updated" rosters are very inaccurate, M. Bush isn't even on the Bears. Players don't match abilities of real life counter parts: ex. Newton fumbles a lot for a person who also runs a lot in real life. F. Jones goes beast mode. So stats do not progressively update, because the NFL research at EA appears to be minimal. Then EA wants you to pay for online features: NONSENSE. Overall, its an OK upgrade, but what do you expect from a NFL game that has no competition whatsoever. This effort, is an exactly reason why I hesitate to buy madden every year. I think if I get the handle down on the strange defense, then it will be more fun to play. The game is quite average like usual, but I can't wait till 2k gets back to football.
