FREEZE - FREEZE - FREEZE!!!
on August 27, 2006
I like to play franchise mode with the fantasy draft. I completed my draft and moved on to training camp. After completing the first quarterback challenge, the game froze. I turned the system off, tried again several times - the result? Nothing but game freeze. Did a Google search and this seems to be a BIG problem for the Xbox 360 and PSP as well as the PS2 (which I own).
I tried emailing EA, but they want you to create a user account or else you can't reach them - why? I found a link to EA's warranty site and they want you to send them back the game and a check for $20 to get a repair/replacement. Are they nuts!?! To top it off, during my search of "Madden 07 freeze", I found message board postings indicating that when people did email EA, the response from EA has it trying to blame the game system, not the EA product. I then did a "Madden 07 bug" search and discovered EA KNOWINGLY distributed the game with major bugs! If you don't believe me, do the Google search yourself.
I printed off the Google search results, went back to the store where I bought Madden, explained the problem and got a full refund. It looks like an exclusive license with the NFL has made EA soft and this game worthless.
I would not recommend this game. As a big believer in customer service/companies that stand behind their product, I will NEVER buy another EA title again.
