by magicsam407 game cover
in my opinion the cover should be the Arroon Rodgers Eli Manning Turell Suggs or Cam newton or as much as i hate it Tim Tebow hopefully it is not some random guy from a horrible team (cough) (Madden 12, Payton Hillis, Clevland Browns) but i got to admit the gameplay for that game was pretty good gameinformer rated it a 8.5 i think watch the cover be an offensive linemen from the rams or a defensife linemen from the dolphins anything is possible with some noobs vothe for the worst player on there team like a 100,000,000,000,000 times. OH yea and its for kinect now hopfully it has voice command

by MaddenFever Should You Buy This Game?
I've heard tons of stuff about this game, and I've watched tons of videos. I am betting that half of you who are writing these reviews dont have xbox live. If you have not heard, they heard about all of the stuff on youtube with the bad looking models, and when the run the ball it dosnt look realistic, they are fixing it. So calm down and stop giving the game 1's and 2's. I can see from the videos and stuff and it looks like a fun game, an yes. they took out the fanasty and everything. But heres a fun fact. In california 1.5 million people bought the game yesterday. Guess what. 560,000 of them returned it. They all participated in a survey and they put down the stuff you are all talking about, such as no fantasy and bad graphics. EA LOOKED AT THOSE SURVEYS! So after reading all of those guess what they are doing? Fixing it. Most likely there will be a fantasy and a major update of the game. Realize how i said most likely. I am not certain they will add fantasy but it is likely, but i am certain that they will have a major update. So for you guys who do not like the game im telling you hold on to it for a lil longer. You have like a 30 day return warranty or something like that so don't worry. I promise you when the update comes out you will love the game, just as much as you all loved madden 12 when the major updates started to come for those who play live. Do i Recommend this game? Yes. Its just like how it was for NASCAR 12 (whatever the newest one is i dont remember if its that year) It was garbage. the online was terrible and it was the just sketchiest thing that i ever played. i waited a week and boom. New update. I downloaded it and guess what. The game was 100% better. So im telling you, before you return the game, atleast wait for one update. For all you people who dont have live, your just going to have to do one of the 3 things. 1, deal with it. 2, get live. or 3, return the game. Thank you all for your time, good luck with the game~MaddenFever
Rated 5 out of 10 Typical Madden: Average
A typical madden game. they did make it a little better than last years though. if you haven't bought a Madden in a while and are thinking about buying this one assuming there will be a drastic change, don't!!! unless you want the updated rosters. the only reason I buy a Madden every year is for the new rookies because they don't change anything else. the tackling is a bit better and the game is more realistic even though tripping over your own guys can be pretty annoying. I just wish Madden didn't have a contract with the NFL so that 2k sports could come out with some competition. also the DB's in this game are ridiculousness. they will drop wide open catches one play and then levitate in front of a wideout to get a pick the next. developers should consider making the DB's more realistic. they should make them get confused on some plays like in real life. instead they won't be looking at the play and they will still deflect it or pick it. THE DB'S NEED TO BE MADE MORE REALISTIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rated 8 out of 10 Best Madden for awhile with some issues
Overall this Madden is the best one to come out of EA for awhile. To get the Negatives out of the way, if you are looking to purchase this game for multiplayer franchise with someone in your home...stick with 12. This year they left it out. Now it is Connected Careers and you can only have 1 person on the console so it is now all online. That is by far the biggest set back of this game. Other than that the new engine is amazing. You can run the same play back to back to back and each time it will be different. Some issues with the engine though are they ragdoll sometimes and if you run into the back of your linemen while rushing, well you may just fall over like a wet noodle. The hip hop and rock music is gone. It now features orchestral music for the menus. A much needed improvement. New commentators were definitely a must and they improved them so that is nice. Chris Collinsworth didn't work out for me. I usually shut him off. Other than that, plenty of players online and its a good overall game.
Rated 7 out of 10 by Bwbkicks Almost nailed it
The game is fun. The new graphics engine is spectacular. There are a couple of bugs in it, but that's to be expected with anything new. The gameplay is improved because of it anyways. I have 2 big issues with it that keep it from become a great game. The first is that All-Pro teams are easy to pick apart and result in scores and stats that are nowhere near realistic, however if you decide to up the difficulty to All-Madden, suddenly their linebackers and halfbacks have the Hulk's powers and your players would have difficulty against some of the better high school teams. There's no middle ground. The second problem is they put all the effort into making gameface and allowing you to customize your team and coach, but you can't use a custom playbook that you made in a franchise mode. Why make everything superficial about the coach able to be customized, but not how you would actually coach the game? None-the-less, it is still my favorite Madden that has come out, and I'm looking forward to the next one.
Rated 4 out of 10 by 900tttt Just Terrible @ go back to Madden 12!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Madden 13 is just another EA sports FAILLLLLLLLLL. Madden 13 has my head spinning in circles because the New Physics engine so called is suppose to make it look and feel like a real NFL game. WRONGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG. When players are tackling other players on a run play (lets say the HB Sprint) they all just drop and fall, and when they fall they roll around like a dog to get back up. The ref's are just plane right dumb if you ask me. They NEVER get a call right,and when you challenge a position of the other team, they take about a half a second and say the ruling on the field stands as called.????????????????? how about these ref's give me some info on why it is being called at that position. plus when you get called offsides they dont' even say the Number of that player, or what there name is. the Only 2 good things about this game is that they changed the commentators to Jim and Phil from CBS, and the music in the game. Overall i think this is a terrible game, and that you should get Madden 12 instead.
Rated 8 out of 10 by sacramento10 bad ratings because of unknowledged gamers.
A lot of people are going to rate this game poorly because they in general are sick of madden and just want to express bad about the game so people can get discouraged. I will be honest a big step up from madden 12, the passing is very good the best quarterbacks are very accurate. The physics engine is real sweet makes tackling a ton more realistic and especially running the ball, if a player is on the ground you have to leap or jump over them because if you run into them you will trip up or stumble and that will slow you down leading to being tackled. Receivers make great catches from time to time but not unrealistics ones, chances are if a receiver gets hit hard as trying to hold onto the ball the reciever will drop it. The only concerns i have is the game is to easy, i play on all madden and win by 48 and i could never win on all madden. also no offline fantasy draft for franchise mode. overall pretty good game, keep in mind no game is perfect but this game feels like a broadcasted NFL football game and i do like it.
Rated 1 out of 10 by kaerfneddam Worst madden in years
The game is based all around the offense they clearly have the advantage. To many plays to list that are pretty much unstoppable tho the favorite one I encountered head to head online was the deep comeback offense will complete this pass 9 out of 10 times versus anything you throw at it man/cover 2/ cover 2 sink/ cover 3 blue zone/ cover 3 with purple zone/cover 4/cover 6/ 9 velcro. The draw play has also taken a big step back as O line still wont charge the D line if they are dropping into coverage. Game is made for people who want to score and dont play much defense for someone defensive minded this game will frustrate you with the unbelieveable things you will see. Two things I see that are a upgrade is the ablility to lead the player with the pass and the graphics are much better. Overall game sucks for serious gamers. Dont take my word for it checkout (hecticReactz) on youtube so you can see for yourself what im taking about. I wish I would of before spending 59.99 on a game that its trade in value is 12$-15$ less then 30 days later
Rated 10 out of 10 by Youthtuber Amazing Game, Physics Improved!
Huge step up with the physics engine. Very good game. Online system is great. I am mad they removed franchise mode, and replaced it with career, but I got over when I started playing, I had a grudge on this game right on up till I played my first game. It was a fantastic experience, and it will last forever. Another great thing is that the players' voices sound like that player's voice. For example, Peyton Manning's Madden voice sounds just like his real life voice. The announcers aren't annoyingly repetitive as they once were. They dpn't say the same thing every play and aren't stupid like Madden 12's announcers. The main announcer and Madden 12 was like humming the Batman theme song. And he would always scream J-E-T-S JETS JETS JETS, sometimes when I wasn't even playing with or against the Jets. Last year the arms of peopl would just go through each other. This year the arms bump into the torso of the defender, and thankfully don't penetrate through players' skin. Overall, this game is a fun time and is great for get-togethers and parties!
