Audio/Visual - 3.5/5: The soundtrack plays a lesser part this time around it seems, however the sounds on the field are crisp and great. The play calling from the announcers is top notch and you barely notice any repeating.

Gameplay - 3.5/5: Madden NFL 13 plays like a dream for fans. From play calling, to the new engine everything is on par of what players have come to expect and wish these dramatic changes have occurred sooner. I suppose better late than never comes to mind.

Innovation -4/5: Innovation is rarely associated with Madden since it has been a cookie cutter franchise for the longest time. However this year, the Infinity Engine, Gridiron Club, and the potential of Connected Careers weighs heavily on the title as something that has broken new ground for the franchise.

Value - 2/5: Not the most feature crammed Madden with Franchise, and Superstar being taken out in favor of the new Connected Careers. The value is heightened if you have a few friends to play with in the new mode as well as Madden Ultimate Team.

Final Score: 2.5/5

excellent review wasn't expecting anything more from a madden game

Actually, most places are giving it more positive review than the previous 3 or 4 games. Odd you found the one that didn't...

I'll just go back to playing the 2K games on Dreamcast, 2K5, and Fever on Xbox. Best FB games.

It has an 83 on metacritic so far. IGN also gave it a 9.0, which surprised me. The demos much more realistic than last years game, so I'd say it's worth a shot

yea it looks like they actually tried to improve it this year, especially since they have to renew their NFL license

Disappointed with the Demo. Still alot of issues with receiving punts. Graphics are pretty much the same.

By far the best madden so far. Better than a 2.5 overall.

WTF? How could you take the MOST EXCITING thing away from MADDEN? FANTASY DRAFT...what were the morons at EA SPORTS thinking?

Franchise mode is still there, just not with the same name... It's the Coach Career...

I never liked the Fantasy Draft. i want my team to have the same players it does in real life. why would you have Tom Brady on the Dolphins or something?

Here's the thing. A coach in real life has the power to tell a cornerback, "hey, i want you to play safety". And then he makes them a safety. oh, and I also dont like having more than one player with the same number. The point is, why would they take out editing players in career mode? I dont want to be able to make all my players a 99, but i want to change their numbers, names, equipment etc. A simple patch would do.
