I was super hesitant to buy this game because of the early reviews it got from people but it really is pretty great. The Gameplay quality, appearance and flow is better than it ever has been. The total control passing takes getting used to and will piss you off for a while but once you understand how to use it correctly it makes the game feel legit and not repetitive. My only complaint is the same main complaint so many people have had. Franchise mode is now Career mode. It is a cool take on it, I like the model but so much customization and little practical things arent there. You cannot edit anything, you cant simulate entire seasons(week by week is painful when you are scratching a year for the draft) and the worst thing is you can't go back and look at scouting reports on players once you get to the draft. So if I scout 5 SS's and one of them has the "star" development rating I better remember who that was if I save and come back to it later. Once you advance to the stage where the draft takes place you can only view your draft board and the subsequent ratings you unlocked that are numbered ratings. None of the traits, tendencies and the all important development rating are shown. As the updates have come down though they have made good changes to the flow of the operation side of the game which is where I see any and all problems.
I think the Madden games keep get better every year but they could take a better initiative to improve things faster than wait for the next edition to come around.
I would love it if other companies could make a football video game to compete with Madden but EA bought the rights to have to use the NFL Players, teams, logos, etc. to create a monopoly and force everyone to buy this game. Capitalism sucks...
Got this game a while back, just to keep up with the football times. I really liked the intro and the screen with all the new features and the layout the game had. One thing I wasn't a fan of was the career mode in which if you created a player and put him as a QB for the Pat's he'd start over Brady, despite having the always start box not checked. I still liked Madden 12 over 13 and after seeing what happened to the EA Nascar franchise I wasn't too sure I wanted to get Madden "25" right away.
I will give this game a *****5 Star***** i love playing Madden Video games for a long time and it just getting better and better every year. if you love football and play video games this is the best game to get on PS3.
I read all the negative reviews on this and figured it was just the same old people, complaining about madden like they do every year. So, I waited for the price to drop because I own every Madden game from the last 10 years and am a life long lions fan. I must say, the game is even worse than expected. Franchise mode is gone, replaced with career mode. I'm sure you've already read that. It's even worse than expected though. I can't wait for EA to have some competition in the NFL game world. Maybe then they will step up and listen to what the fans all want. So much wasted disc space pushing out the same game every year with updated rosters (which in years past has been good enough for me to justify buying it). Unfortunately, EA's got us by the balls, and I'll buy this years version too. Gotta get my constant drip of NFL or I start to experience with drawls.
The Connected Career modes are much more enjoyable than the previous generation "franchise mode" versions. Occasionally, this game will freeze my PS3 while performing multiple actions in the Roster/Depth Chart area. At first I thought it was my console, but I do not have this issue with other games...and I own ALL previous Madden versions and other EA Sports games as well. It has been annoying, but not catastrophic.
Madden 13 has honestly set the bar for Football games and Gameplay I have no Complaints on this years release other then online ranked matches u cant play any one u want
One of the best Madden franchise's ever... Very fun and replay-able. I wasn't a huge fan of the Madden games but this year definitely changed my mind. Great game.
I like this game and I always wanted a PS3 version of this fine game by EA Sports(next to the XBox 360 version of the same name)and I will play it! Definitely! This is a great game and it's a fun game and it's loads of fun!
