    Same old, same old. Not worth the cash!

    Madden 12 looks great as always with beautiful colors and textures, as well as nice easy to navigate menu systems. The environment of the game has a nice feel, and the controls run smoothly for the mo...

    Spend your 60 bucks on a diff game... madden 12 is basically a roster update with a few minor tweaks to franchise mode

    Rated on June 20, 2012 by mrmusicman95

    First things first. I've been playing madden for as long as I can remember, back when I first got it for my gamecube nearly ten years ago, so I pretty much know what I'm talking about when I say: I ...

    Consistency from Maden franchise

    Rated on October 28, 2012 by dlsc3120

    I see many people complain that the franchise isn't doing enough to separate one year from the next. However the game holds a good consistency with its mechanics and game play. Where they are making t...

    It's Madden. Don't expect anything more, but don't expect anything less.

    Madden is solid. You've got no other choice to play football besides NCAA Football 12, basically Madden with lots of silly mascots and instead of Superstar mode they call it Road to Glory. Madden is t...

    This Madden got some less then par reviews, but I got it and I like it better then last years edition.

    Rated on September 02, 2011 by kenundrum7

    To start off, my preference, I like action, as opposed to any front office stuff. Actually, I hate front office stuff, drafting, signing free agents, cutting players, and all that gobbly goop. I see ...

    Glitch ridden

    Rated on September 03, 2011 by saifqarni

    This years rendition fails to live up to the brand. It's glitch ridden, the game play is unnecessarily burdened with unrealistic changes, it's repetitive in an annoying way, and easy to bore with. ...

    Finally! A good Madden game! Is it perfect? No. But its fun and plays much smoother. The best Madden on PS3 to date.

    Rated on September 04, 2011 by bleedgreen2-1-5

    Graphics: Basically the same as last year, maybe a little more vibrant in the colors. Flack Jackets, the green headset sticker on the abck of the quarterback and linebackers helmet, and 3D grass make ...

    I've been playing Madden since Madden '95 on my super nintendo. I've always enjoyed football games. I bought and also enjoyed NFL 2k2 and 2k5 (2k5, best presentation in a football game, ever.) as well...

    Major improvements make this my highest madden rating in awhile, but same ole issues hinder it from being great.

    Rated on September 10, 2011 by MrJorsh

    I get Madden every year on release date. Even though I know I'm buying a rehashed, repackaged, mediocre game. What can I say, I love football and the lack of another title makes Madden a must by for m...
