Everyone laughs at Madden being the same every year... well you're all wrong, cuz his year is much much worse. Touchdowns off incompletes, turnovers on penalties, your scores go to the other team, kicks regularly decide to go somewhere you didnt aim, etc. Not to mention the annoying little things like 1 handed catches every other play.
This game is almost Big Rigs levels of broken, and this update appears to not address any of it and only create more (from what I've read). Glad I only rented...
Feels cheaply produced and almost completely un-thought out from a tactical standpoint. The maps are just too simple and chaotic. Hotwire mode is a joke... just drive in circles, run around like an idiot. Has its moments, but too few and far between. The heist is a simple (not even glorified) capture the flag and nothing more. The only thing halfway decent is conquest, but it feels out of place with the game's theme, and given the lack of interesting/useful vehicles on top of the poor production values, is done better in pretty much any other BF.
Graphically even, feels like regressing somewhere between BF2 and 3 (though I'll temporarily chalk that up to "beta"... but I doubt that's the case).
As such, a good "beta" (demo)... as it saved me from spending 60$. Not saying it's a bad game though, just kinda pointless when you have better (and cheaper) options in every conceivable way of the same thing.
