I've only had the stall thing happen once. Though there is a constant lag after plays, freezing for 3-5 seconds if trying to run a hurry up offense. (even in offline play)
My biggest complaints would be:
1. the linebackers were supposed to not make the "super human" catches, jumping and over the shoulder like a WR. But they still do, and a lot!
2. There is also a constant screw up with the sound on the PS3 version. Sound for the commentators & the crowd will just silence for a second or two, sometimes mid-word or mid-sentence with the commentators.
3. I've noticed the dreaded "look for your assigned blocker" happen with the defensive players. This started with Madden 12. Say you are a DL player, supposed to rush the QB. If your blocker is lined up outside you (away from the center) your DL will run to that blocker!! It is really lame, but only happens when that blocker is to the outside. Instead of crushing the QB, your DL will run down the line to get blocked. LAME!
Having said all that, I think the game play is better than it has been in previous seasons. I'd give it a 3.5/5. If it weren't for those few glitches this would be a near perfect game.
I still will play and enjoy it. Best EA football release since 2010. They still haven't gotten everything right but this isn't as bad as some previous releases.
