About this product
- Product InformationThe Madden NFL series returns to Xbox 360 with a number of enhancements to the on-field action, play modes, and presentation. More than 100 tweaks to the defensive artificial intelligence are included, with the computer designed to be more adept at reading and reacting to plays, breaking out of assignments when necessary, and more. A new collision system factors in an athlete's momentum on hits, with over 100 new tackling animations added for more realism.
The presentation focuses on the little details of the NFL experience, from authentic run-outs for each team to the actual on-field cameras used by NFL Films. Also included are updated uniforms, new player equipment, helmet stickers, new player-specific animations, and uniforms and helmets that show wear and tear as games progress. Franchise mode introduces over 100 changes, from expanded rosters to a free-agent bidding system, while the Superstar mode lets your star athlete earn skill points during practices and games.
A new dynamic player performance system finds an individual athlete's skills and confidence improving or deteriorating based on in-game performances. Other key features include the option to build an "Ultimate Team" of past and present superstars by buying, auctioning, and trading player cards, and the ability to form and join online communities that make it easier for Madden fans to interact with each other. Owners will also be able to modify existing playbooks or create their own by picking and choosing up to 400 offensive or defensive plays.

Decent Product, if you can get for cheap it's worth it.
This is the first Madden I've played since 2004. It's a fun game but at times can be ridiculous. Example: The menu music... in order to turn off many of the awful songs in this game you need to create a franchise and change it within the franchise menu area which I didn't know for the first 2 weeks. Also, on NFL Superstar it is way to easy to make your guy good. I made an ROLB and started as a 73, by the end of the first season I was a 94... Theres almost no more room for improvement.
Can be kind of glitchy at times as well, and the Franchise, and Superstar menus piss me off. Overall though it's a good game.

Best Madden yet
The last Madden I played was 2010, for the most part, the gameplay is unchanged from the Madden 10, however there are some key variations that make the experience much more enjoyable. On its standard settings, a single 4 quarter game can be played in about 30 to 40 minutes in Madden 12. Madden 10 (because of the halftime graphics, and other heavy nonsense) bogged the single gametime down to 45 minutes to an hour minimum. In a given sitting, now you can knock out 2 or 3 games comfortably, versus 1 to 2 games uncomfortably (this is my opinion).
Play calling is slightly more "automated". You can still pull up a full playbook as in the past, but the quick options for plays are to go with your "Gameplan" or a "Run" or a "Pass" play. These plays are generated in a similar way the Madden Suggests a few plays in the Playbook. On Defense I typically just pick the Gameplan, and on Offense I typically do the same with some minimal variation - it is very easy to call audibles, and change hot routes on the fly, so I find myself customizing the plays as I go, and not relying on the base plays all the time.
I've mostly played Franchise, but have played some Superstar and that mode is improved as well - instead of a Superstar perspective while playing, it matches other game modes. I've only played as a QB though.
Long story short, I think this is the best iteration of Madden yet. The scouting in Franchise mode is altered - makes it more difficult to scout more guys, but it also makes it more manageable and less cumbersome. Also, in Franchise mode there are now expanded rosters during offseason and pre-season. So feel free to draft a lot of rookies, and then just cut them as you go along (in the past in order to draft rookies you'd have to cut guys currently on your roster in order to sign them - no more).Read full review

The game is average, pick it up cheap now.
I've been a longtime player and have been playing NCAA 12 since it's release. I like the play selection and gameplay better in NCAA 12.
Madden 12 seems to be designed with the casual gamer in mind with the dumb downed play selection. You can customize game menus and the playbook.
I enjoy the franchise mode the best. It is robust from the expanded rosters in pre-season, to scouting of the draft prospects throughout the season. I enjoy saving my draft classes in NCAA 12 and importing them into Madden.
Over all it's worth picking up if you can get the game cheap. Be aware that you will not be able to play online if you buy a used copy.

The last madden game I bought was madden 2009. I lost the thrill in playing the game. I saw what I thought was a very good price for this game. So I took a chance and purchased madden 12, and I am very glad I did!!! The game is more realistic than the madden I stop playing. I like the fact that in this one you can edit your players traits during franchise mode, something you couldn't do in older madden games. And the fact that I can customize the play of the game more to my liking. There is nothing I disliked about the game!!! There are a lot more things I can say about it, but it would take to much time writing them all. It has brought back the thrill of playing madden football. For those of you who are thinking about buying this game, in my opinion this would not be a bad purchase!!!
