The "New" Madden 13

My only issue with the new madden came because of NCAA 13. I understand that they are not the same game but they are attached at the hip. NCAA is the prequel to Madden. The big issue that I have is that they took away the best part of the last 4 madden games. Being able to save a draft class and add it to Madden. That hurts fans who look for a realistic connection in the game. Just like players who play fantasy games look for their games to be more realistic, we sports fans look for the same thing. Getting connected to a player in the college game and knowing that you will do everything in your power to draft that player and watch him develop is a big deal for hardcore fans. Losing this hurt the franchise as well as lost a few fans. I know that next year I wont be buying NCAA and I already cancelled my Madden Pre-Order. 

This is a giant step backwards in my opinion and I hope more fans will agree.

  • The import feature was the only problem you had with the game? Are you kidding me the import feature was horrible every year. Just take last years game as an example, Andrew Luck was rated a 71 with C potential coming from NCAA 12 to Madden 12 the import feature never worked. How did you not like the new franchise mode? Did you try to level up your coach or players with the new XP system? Have you tried any of the new things? Have you seen the new physics engine? Just give the game a chance I have enjoyed my early release play through.
  • Other issues I have found with the new Madden. The game play seems more aracde then real life, that is a huge step backwards from 2012. Last years madden seemed less cartoon and more real. My wife who plays mostly lego games even commented, "This one doesn't look as real." I laughed because I was thinking the same thing. I am trying to give this Madden a chance but it is killing me.

  • Yeah this was a straight kill for me, thats why I bought the NCAA game and to find out they are not even connect this year at all sucked donkey nuts... If Ea doesn't address this at all for next years installments then I won't be buying them at all next year.
