    2 Steps forward 10 Steps back

    Short and sweet, this game could have been best Madden in a very long time, but they made a major mistake. They replaced the best part of the game "Franchise" with "Connected Careers" which at the moment is completely b... Read Full Review

    No fantasy draft, no editing players, no using custom teams in connected careers mode. Gameplay is really fun though.

    Madden this year improved on a lot of things, but regressed as well. Typical EA in taking one step forward and two steps back. Gameplay: For me, the running game as a lot rougher (which is good) on the offensive and de... Read Full Review

    Deleting a number of standard features ruined the game

    Every year, I've waited with anticipation for Madden to come out. The same was true of this year. However, with as many features that were taken out I can no longer buy Madden day one. Franchise mode is gone, replaced... Read Full Review

    Too many INT's are thrown in every game! Way too hard!

    The defense has rocket jets on there shoes so when you throw the ball to your WR's they zoom to the ball like sonic and pick it off! I've been playing Madden since 2001 and its never been this hard. And taking away Franc... Read Full Review
