Needless to say, learning how to make a season (at least there was one this time through, yikes), was complicated and ultimately frustrating.
There are so many problems with this game, the list could easily go into the hundreds, the freezing alone is just outrageous and anyone associated with this game should be drilled as to how they could allow it to be sold as is.
I was really hoping for a good, revised and solid game...instead the graphics look like they are from the early 80's, the instant replay is a joke, the momentum is weird and hard to control...again, the list is long.
The one caveat was that playing with All-Madden against All-Madden in superbowl mode was actually not horrible...that's the best I can offer...RENT DON'T BUY! And even then, keep your expectations low, as EA must have done prior to putting it on the shelves.
Now, to the flaws. The game seems to have a bunch but I'll list the ones most annoying and damaging to the franchise. On we go:
1)You can't edit stats during the season, nor in the menu. I tried doing it and it didn't save a damn. Yeah, it saved their attire like gloves and kneepads but not their stats.
2)The sidelines have the same waterboys. Sure, it isn't a major flaw but it is comical to see the same guys pouring water on players chins on both sidelines.
3)To kick a field goal. Sebastian Janikowski has the most powerful kick in the NFL, his accuracy is sometimes off but he can kick a 60 yard field goal. I played a season with the Raiders, I was 1-8 kicking over 45 yards. The machine, made kicks of 62 and 67 yards with ease, which is ridiculous.
4)Franchise mode is gone. I found it so complicated to play a season than ever before.
5)L1 makes them flip the ball like a lateral pass even with no player around, it is a useless button.
Yearly, Madden seems to take a step back than a step forward. People will still buy it despite its major flaws but it will come a time in which the flaws will just be to much to bear.
Newest version of the game with the newest teams
Graphics are good
Physics are decent
Running has a lot of options, I especially like that you can't just do the same move over and over and get away with it
throwing on the run isn't the easiest, unlike previous maddens you can't just take Michael Vick run around the backfield and throw a 60 yd bomb off your back foot
running is next to impossible to stop. Running is better, but is too good, even with a blitz it can be tough to hold the person to less than 3 yards. This is very close to a fatal flaw, the NFL (real life) goes from 47-67% pass play average, in this game the best player in the world passes 9% of the time...and he is not alone. If you run well you almost never need to pass the ball and that doesn't really feel like football. The overcompensation swung the madden pendulum to a ridiculous run percentage. Better luck next time
man coverage with the stupidest defenders. Unfortunately you can still play against someone where the TE does an out route 20-30 time in a row and the guy covering him still can figure it out...really madden, there is no way to prevent that? This is similar to the "Modify the receivers route, throw it to him and have another guy catch it while the defenders go for the primary receiver and let guy number two run for a touchdown", not right.
Probably most frustrating is trying to intercept a pass that you have read perfectly. At times your strafing and the ball literally missed you head by 6 inches and your football players hands that evidently cannot move left or right. Sometime the secondary is amazingly not athletic
Overall: Ok, but the fatal flaw of super runner makes the game either "No fun one demential beating" or "pretty fun cause you found someone who wants to play a football simulator" (hence 2 stars instead of 1)
