The lights are on
Madden 13 has made strides this year, however it has taken some of the fun out the title.
There's no soundtrack, and unless you play it on Xbox(where you can superimpose your tunes over the game audio) you'll have to listen to an arranged musical score. EA is pinching pennies we get it, but why not go the way of MLB the show and let you input your own playlist? not everyone is a fan of orchestrated scores, and specially songs not connected to the NFL. If the songs blaring in the background where from NFL films it would be different, but this is not the case.
Can't used edited rosters in any mode other than exhibition, I don't care for manipulating ratings but it would be nice to alter the uniforms and gear the player wear. I mean if you play through one season of Madden you've played 20, the one thing that kept it fresh for me was the option to thinker with the look of the players. The supposed great addition are good, but not good enough to cover for this blunder. After all the game is a sport's sim, and not being able to manipulate certain aspects of it in career mode made the whole experience feel like I was playing a demo or an unfinished product. Thank god EA has the decency to let people try out the games 3 days early with season pass, other wise I would have bought the game and been bitterly disappointed
@gregzoller90 I wish I would have seen your post before I bought this turd. I would have kept 12 and edited the opposing rosters till the cows came home.
Yes, I agree. Man, what a let down. They also got rid of the spectate option in the new franchise mode which is called "Connected Careers."
I can't understand why if something is OK, why mass with it. franchise mode is what makes Madden. Bought game to early. Disappointed
Don't you think that 11 was as good as 12?
I am still playing 12. I got rid of 13, quickly. I hope they get it right with 14. Better yet - I hope they get some real competition from other developers. Lack of competition breeds inept production...Confucious say ;)
only thing i dont like bout madden is it dont have fanchise mode
