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
