Yes, the game improved (somewhat) from previous installments. However, there's still the same issues that has plagued the franchise. The game doesn't seem fluid and there are game play mechanics issues like players suction, repetitive tackling, very poor commentary play-by-play, and poor audio quality. Online play for the PS3 version lags a lot too.

You figure after years of experiments and complaints from consumers EA would finally nailed all discrepancies and put together one solid game. Unfortunately, we're talking about EA. A company that loves to promote false advertising and deceptive marketing to naive gamers who continually lash out sixty dollars every year.

What's it going to take for the gaming community to realize that unless you stop buying Madden games, EA will repeat the same B.S. on an annual basis? STOP buying Madden games, let EA suffer from sales drop, and let's hope that the NFL take away the exclusive rights for EA to make football games.

What is your take? Are you satisfied with Madden 12?

I haven't played Madden since the 2003 edition. So I'm not too familiar with the more recent additions. I'm thinking about buying this one. Would you recommend it to someone hasn't been let down year after year?

It feels like a beta version but it's still a good game.

Well, I'm satisfied to the point that I traded it in at Best Buy yesterday. But you're right, we have to stop buying this game to get their attention. This is my first time ever trading in a Madden title, thus, I've learned my lesson. No more football games for me until 2K can get back in the mix :)

I am HORRIBLY unimpressed with this game. The blocking is abysmal. Your fullback and even your linemen at times will run right past the defenders they are supposed to pick up. And don't get me started on kick returns (kickoff or punt). You have no blocking whatsover. I NEVER run a punt back and on kickoffs, my guys will run straight past people allowing me to get hammered inside the 20.

That's my real only gripe with this game. Maybe I got spoiled by playing NCAA first where 90% of suction tackles were removed and the blocking actually worked.

It is terrible. I would go into it more but it has all been said. I had not played madden on a PS3 before and was thinking it would be really great. It was such a huge disappointment. I have been a fan of this series from the beginning, but never again will I buy a Madden game.
