Most Disappointing Edition Ever,
This review is from: Madden NFL 13 - Playstation 3 (Video Game)
Let me start by saying I literally just stopped playing, got off my couch, and got on Amazon to right my first review ever because I am so angry and frustrated with EA. If anyone wants to buy a game that is 2 days old let me know.
I can't even begin to say how disappointed I am with Madden. They do all the work to make the gameplay great but take away some of the best features (franchise, editing players, fantasy draft etc.). I have had the game for a few days and honestly have had so much trouble just getting going because of the terrible menu set up, bombardment of advertising when I try to play online, and general confusion with the game.
The set up is just a complete jumbled mess. The one thing I will give them is the improved tackling but that hardly makes up for everything else.
I'm not a dummy with games either I have been playing for years but for one reason or another there has been a huge amount of grief trying to play this game.This is mainly because I have frantically been searching everywhere for franchise mode and tried to understand "connected careers" with little success.
It is complete BS that they would do this first off and I found this online stuff to be a poor attempt to make the game more "SOCIAL" and "Twitter Like." I just want to play the freakin game!!! Not share my progress with the world. If this is the fault of the younger generation being twitter and connected obsessed then I guess I am an old man at 25.
Bottom line-- If you play Madden for the franchise mode, DO NOT BUY THIS GAME!! Feel my rage EA!! I shall have my vengeance..in this life of the next.
