EDIT 9/3... see end
Final Edit 9/5

Brief first impressions from playing the game for a few hours today: (I skipped Madden 11, so any comparisons to previous versions are Madden 10 or before)

Pros:
- Visuals; stadiums, fields, weather look very nice. Crowd is still a little boring but that doesn't bother me.
- The Franchise Mode improvements are nice. I haven't made it to an offseason yet, but the expanded rosters, cut days, and IR system force you into some tough decisions which are a welcome challenge.
- New pump fake system; I haven't read about this in any of the other reviews, but in my opinion it's one of the best new features. Unlike previous games, where there is one 'pump fake' button which makes the QB perform a generic pump fake, Madden 12 lets you hold the left trigger (on 360) and press any receiver to pump fake to that receiver. This is very useful for pulling linebackers out of the middle of the field and throwing behind them, or getting safeties to commit before lobbing a bomb over their heads.
- Realistic injuries; The new 'player roles' system in general is very cool, and it has some nice results. I was playing as my team (Go Steelers!) and Aaron Smith went down with a torn bicep... the same exact injury that caused him to miss the playoffs last year! Players who are injury prone in real life are more likely to get injured throughout a season in this game.
- Rookies; I love the fact that you don't instantly know what you got out of a guy when you draft him (or for the current rookies when you start a Franchise). After each preseason game, you learn more about each rookie (unlock more of their individual attributes), and their 'overall' begins to narrow down to reflect their actual skill.

Frankly, I'm writing this review because I'm tired of reading people whine about things that simply are inevitable with any video game. Video games are not real life, so of course playing Madden will not be like controlling actual NFL players, duh. The audio commentary is pre-recorded and randomized, not live. Sometimes it's going to seem weird, duh. When you have a game that has deep calculations at so many levels with hundreds of variables, sometimes there will be bugs, duh.

The better comparison is with other games in the Madden Franchise. I have owned and profusely played every Madden Game since 03. Honestly, this is the best Madden since the switch to next-gen consoles (Xbox360, PS3, etc.) The franchise mode finally got the treatment it deserved after being fairly ignored since the next-gen switch. Another great twist is that now, the stat's aren't absolute; the engine has been programmed to change players ratings in-game based on how they perform. One reviewer complained that his players weren't performing like they "should", but that's because of the new shift. I personally love it because it makes it much more like the real game: even superstars have bad games sometimes, and sometimes bad players have temporary bursts of greatness. It gives the game a much livelier feel.

In summary: if you've liked Madden for years, you'll love this game. If you're new to Madden and like football, give it a try. It takes a couple of games to get used to how things work, but once you get the hang of it it's a lot of fun. Don't listen to negative reviews from people who expect too much out of something that's just a video game at the end of the day.

I think Madden 12 has made some progress....I think. However, Madden 11 was so bad that it's hard to tell. I'm unsure if I like it more because Madden 11 was garbage, or if it has some actually quality to it. Here is as list of things I consider to be pro's & con's of Madden 12.

All of my experience's are based from playing on the All Madden setting.

Pro's.

1.)The Presentation. The presentation is very good. It definitely feels/looks more authentic and adds excitement before the game. The presentation in previous Madden's was a joke. I think it was Madden 10 that had Jet's flying over and fire works going off before every game. Doe's this normally happen? Jet's...maybe. Seems like I've seen that happen on occasion, but it doesn't happen before every game for every team. But fireworks...before a NOON kickoff? What team shoot's off fire workers during the day before kick off? Ridiculous. I sometimes wondered if the Madden programmers actually watched football? Well, that joke has been replaced with some realism. The Madden team has done a great job this time around.

2.)Catch options/awareness. This year receivers seem to be able to do more. Whether it's trying to stay in bounds or come down in the end zone or falling to their knee's to make a catch, this aspect has been (thankfully) expanded. It was always frustrating to throw a pass to a receiver who seemed oblivious to the sidelines or made no effort to come down in the end zone despite their high ratings.

3.) Franchise. I love the new franchise additions. Trying to rebuild or maintain a good team over the years is my favorite thing to do with Madden. I'm especially thrilled with the cut day's.
