I have bought it every year for awhile but this year I am unsure... Madden 12 sucked something awful even worse than the years before which werent very good either.

Madden 12 was light years ahead of any of the previous 360/PS3 installments so I don't know where this idea is coming from. Not saying it was a great game, but at least get that straight. I hate, hate, hate that you can't have two offline franchise teams.

I gotta be honest I haven't even really liked any of the Maddens since the switch over to Xbox 360. The last years on the original Xbox felt so much more refined in every way except graphics. How/why do they seemingly just keep removing good features?

To make room for new ground breaking garbage... which will last an entire year until its removed because its garbage.

No fantasy drafts....no importing draft classes....no multiple team franchises. Not sure I'm buying the RPG part of it having an big impact but we'll see.
Wait, are saying that you can't have fantasy drafts in franchise mode?? If true, then i see no reason to buy this game.

Playing rookies is a big factor for some people to buy each new version of madden. The better they are the greater the appeal.

RGIII would be really fun to play as. I wouldn't buy a new madden for that, especially as they no longer have fantasy drafts. I loved getting a team with just young draft picks. The team is super awesome in a season or two. RGIII I'd be certain to take him. The last Madden I bought was 09 where I'd always draft VY.

No idea why they'd take that out. It doesn't affect those that don't like it.

Yea I mean why is that a surprise anymore. He's a QB who is insanely athletic with a cannon for an arm, he's going to be good on a video game. You have to bring his awareness down to level it out. I'm pretty sure it's been like this since Vick came in as a QB as a rookie.


EDIT: Can anybody actually confirm we cant do fantasy drafts? That's been in the game forever, no reason for them to take that out. I'd like to know for certain that's the case.

That's never a big deal to me because they update ratings like every week now.


But I did some reading up and not only are there no fantasy drafts offline or online, but you cannot edit a player in any mode at all. No ratings, equipment, gloves, sucks, position, etc. Madden is an absolute joke right now. We only have to put up with 1 more Madden next year until they can finally have some competition again(unless they re-up).


I'm hoping 2k can throw their hat back in this. Madden is such a terrible franchise now that if there was competition they would see how far their numbers plummet. It's only due to the fact that it's the only football game on the most popular sport that the sales are still that high.

More competition like Sega's 2k franchise would be better for Madden anyways.

What?!?!?!?

No rating edits whatsoever?

That's ridiculous, I always do a total rehaul of the awful, awful ratings madden puts out every year.

If that's true, no way I am buying Madden this year...

In the new Madden since the franchise mode is totally revamped into Connected Careers, I was wondering if you can make multiple Create-A-Players and use them in the same "franchise". Or can you only do one Connected Career at a time?

Didn't they delete the Fantasy drafts for this year? That's what I heard from someone, not sure if true though. That sucks if it is true, that's all me and my buddies do.

A buddy and I have done a fantasy draft every year since like 2007. If they actually took it out they just lost another customer.

So you mean to tell me I can't trade Demarcus Ware to a 4-3 team and have him become a DE? WTF would they just remove a critical feature like this? Dammit I was actually going to buy Madden this year too but if this **** is true I'm not touching it.

Having played several games of the Madden 13 demo on 360, I can honestly say that it plays better than the last two years. I played on pro for three games and it was too easy. Went to all pro and played two games. Won 10-6 with the Giants against the 49ers and then won 23-10 using the 49ers against the Giants.

If the camera can be closer when passing especially on deep throws, the gameplay would be much and far improved over the last two years. Granted, thats not saying much but oh well.

Commentary is better but still nowhere near as good as 2K5. Presentation is probably the best its ever been in Madden but again, thats not saying much. It's so sad that EA purchased the ESPN license for 15 years back in early 2005 and yet, seven and a half years later still isnt even half as good as 2K5. No halftime/post game report/highlights. The presentation is still "blah". They show the player of the game being interviewed after the game is over but you can barely see who it is.

Cant speak for others but im hoping/wishing/praying that the NFL doesnt renew their exclusive license with EA because 2K would have blown them away years ago. Oh wait, 2K did just that with 2K5 which is still better than Madden.

And the worse possible thing that EA could have ever done, they did - NO EDITING whatsoever in this year's version. So, if your favorite player has the wrong jersey number or is out of position, you're screwed even though I wouldnt be surprised to see EA add this as a $10 DLC on launch day or in September.

Another thing that bugs me is after the game is over and you check out the team stats, there's still no stat for "points off turnovers". Thats irks me to no end. I had four turnovers with my awesome and best 49ers defense and wanted to know how many points I scored off those turnovers.

In an age where stats and editing should be a main focus, its sad that its nowhere to be found this year. UGH.

Basically the only compelling reason to buy Madden is because it's the only updated NFL game available. That just isn't enough for me.
