The lights are on
Every year we get a new madden and every year we point out the same flaws we saw in the previous version. Let me say this the GAME PLAY should always be better than the graphics. Graphics mean absolutley nothing without the gameplay to go with it. The AI is HORRIBLE. When picking a play the computer should not know what your picking. Football is a game of strategy. The computer will have the "Perfect" defense for your play and you literally have to audiable 2 or 3 times to be productive. Lets hit on the defensive play while were at it. When the ball is thrown in the air, lets say to the tight-end, the corner back that is covering the wideout should not be blindly break off his assigment and now all of a sudden knock down or even intercept the pass from out of no where. Secondly when throwing a pass down field, it seems like no matter how much touch you try putting on the ball, the linebackers will magically knock the ball down or make an extrodinary one handed interception. These things make the game seem so unrealistic. If you want to know how football is played then just turn on the TV and watch a few games EA sports. Stop putting out the same game every year with the same flaws. People are not stupid. We don't care about the "Autoturbo" feature. We want an authentic football simulation that we all will enjoy. Even if you had to skip a year and come out with Madden 2013, the wait would be worth it if you spent the time to make this game as good as it should be. Maybe 2K Sports needs to come out with a football game. Their killing the basketball gaming market so maybe they should consider it. If that happend you guys at EA might take this more seriously and work on the gameplay. You can't cover the problems up with a "New and improved franchise mode" so you like to say every year. This is what happens when you have no competition and you have alot of money. You get lazy. Oh yea and one more thing, the kick-off and punt coverage is still horrible and also unrealistic. I mean seriously can we get some blocking.
TERRIBLE is the only way to describe this game i don't understand how you come out with a game and have the same problems year in and out. It seems like you put more effort in making the turf look real than the actual game play. Another thing who was the genius that did't realize that the defensive players don't run natural at all meaning when a defense sees a toss sweep why is it impossible to run to the runner why is my guy running east west instead of north south
