Top Customer Reviews
I believe Madden hit its peak during the final year on the PS2/XBOX console when every detail of your franchise could be controlled, right down to the price of refreshments in your team's stadium. Admittedly, the game has been a bit of a disappointment since its transition to the latest generation of consoles (PS3 & XBOX 360). The franchise mode was essentially stripped down to the very basics...just a shell of its old form. I understood, at least for a year or two, that the game would have to make a few sacrifices in order to get the game fully functional for the new consoles. The graphics had vastly improved, and I felt I could deal with a lighter version of the franchise mode if it meant playing such a good looking football game. But EA has done very little to bring its franchise mode anywhere close to its old form. There was a glimmer of hope for us franchise enthusiasts in Madden '12 when the game made a number of improvements, publicly acknowledging that Madden had put its franchise loyalists on hold for too long, and the feature was in some great need of improvement. Then Madden '13 was released...
Madden 13 is a slap in the face to any fan of the franchise mode that has stayed true despite the repeated disappointments over the past 5 years. The franchise mode has been completely removed from the game. EA will tell you that the "Connected Careers" (CCM) mode serves as the game's franchise mode now. I beg to differ. The CCM is a sad, sad attempt to contemplate those of us who enjoy the franchise aspect of the game. Anyone with a little awareness can see that EA's attempt to make everything "XP" based is a move to eventually monetize every aspect of the game... (Example: your players no longer progress based on their performance throughout the season. They earn "XP" for reaching certain goals which can be used to purchase upgrades to their attributes.) Everything is about earning "XP". You can't even scout future prospects unless, you guessed it, you've accumulated some precious "XP". This 'subtle' addition may be the scariest aspect of the latest edition of Madden.
To those of you who have been told that CCM replaces franchise mode in the game, here is just a short list of features that are completely gone:
- Offline franchise mode multi-player (seriously?? I've played a league with my best friend every year since 2001.)
- Fantasy draft (that's right, if you like drafting a team to control from scratch....forget about it.)
- Option to upload NCAA 13 rosters for your drafts (the only reason I buy NCAA...)
- Ability to edit player appearance/ratings
- Ability to create a team/logo
- Ability to move your team to another city
I won't even list all of the features that still exist but have had their functionality severely reduced. (Example: you can still trade and sign free agents but the trade logic has been tweaked such that unless you're trading a superstar for a draft pick or two, it's not going to happen. Free agents can be signed but the length and size of the contract can't be adjusted) This would end up being a review too long for anyone to read if I included all the reasons why the features that remain are lacking.
According to EA, the series has approximately 5-7 million dedicated fans, and they'll likely sell over 3 million copies of the game by October. Apparently they've decided that the franchise fans make up too small a minority to worry about. A calculated risk I assume. I'll be returning my copy though, and they can exclude me from their list of dedicated fans going forward.
Let's start off with the obvious, gameplay. Gameplay in Madden NFL 13 is terrible because the new physics engine. It's expected that some glitches may happen sometimes, but this game is just unacceptable. How does something like this ship out the door? Because it's EA, that's how, and they don't give a crap about the quality of the game because they know people will still buy it. Your player will be phantom tackled all the time. It's amazing and hugely frustrating.
Connected Careers is absolute trash as a player. This is their sort of RPG, new take on Superstar mode for the player. It's awful. Your player does NOT PLAY! The only way to play is to do the stupid practices. Hey, EA... did I buy Madden so I could play practices all the god damn time just so I can get a sniff of playing time? NO! My player is supposed to be a special player, yet he doesn't play! He is the same rating as the current starting running back, YET HE SEES NO TIME AT ALL. Oh, and it takes literally FOREVER to earn xp if you can't do game goals because you don't play. Way to go EA.
I haven't even played the new Franchise aka connected career coach. But I imagine that's just as awful.
I can't believe I fell for the EA hype machine again. I should have learned my lesson from Mass Effect 3 and Star Wars the old republic. Complete and utter trash game.
The game play is alright (sloppy at times and amazing at others) but all of the logistical crap you have to put up with to even get to a game in Connected Career mode is not worth the headache. Throw on top of all of that my game just froze (PS3 system is less than a year old so it's not the system) and the easiest way i can summarize my experience thus far with Madden 13 is FRUSTRATING!!!
Not Recommended unless Madden comes out with a patch to reinstate traditional Franchise mode and the ability to create a player and play with him on your team. (The "Player" version of Connected Career, aka new franchise mode, makes it so you can ONLY play with that player. You have no control over the rest of your team or even the others side of the ball (offense or defense).
Please come out with a patch to reinstate Franchise mode!!!
