A few improvements, but basically the same as all Maddens,
Amazon Verified Purchase
This review is from: Madden NFL 12 (Video Game)I've played this game for about a week now - I would say ten full games or so. There are some improvements that people have talked about in other reviews - presentation is better (but still not great), gameplay seems slightly better in some ways, franchise mode has some nice touches to it.
I think the best way to describe playing this game is still "frustrating". That's unfortunately how I have felt playing Madden (and this year NCAA 12) for the past few years. Suction blocking (although supposedly gone) is still very much in the game. All you have to do to see this is shift your D-line far right or far left and then change their rush direction in the same way. On the snap, you will see your d-linemen literally run sideways across the line until they match up with the predetermined blocker that they are supposed to be blocked by (according to the AI). this is frustrating. Running overload blitzes rarely work because of this, but it is frustrating when they work... Read more

A step in the right direction,
This review is from: Madden NFL 12 (Video Game)In the past few years, we have seen the same old features with next-gen Madden games. If you read my Madden 11 review, you'll know lack of multi-hit tackles; suction, morphing, and tumbleweeds have been the Achilles heel of Madden games. I figured Madden 11 would be different, but it was not. After another Madden fiasco, I decided if another Madden game had these issues, I would not buy another Madden game, ever. Well, there is none of those issues on this newest version of Madden. For those, who have not played the demo, this is what Madden 12 is all about.....
Build A Franchise: This feature is VERY deep. For example, the players now have hot and cold streaks. In addition, there is a free-agent bidding systems, which gives the player a certain time and a certain amount of money to sign the coveted free-agent. Also, the franchise mode has something, which is called hot and cold streaks for player performance.
Custom Playbooks: For those, who wanted this... Read more

Another year, another average Madden,
This review is from: Madden NFL 12 (Video Game)First, a disclaimer: For those that have played Madden since the PS2 generation, I think the best two are...
PS2: Madden 2005 (and indeed, I think this is the best one period)
PS3: Madden 2010 (play 2012 and go back to 2010, the presentation is so much better)
Which brings me to Madden NFL 2012. I hestiated to buy this until my wife made the suggestions, who am I to argue? I had heard things about the "Dynamic Player Performance" and all the other improvements, so I said what the heck?
First, the good:
- The game is looking great graphically. They've nailed the stadiums (and indeed, a lot of the intros), the menus are sharp and easy to read, and overall it's more polished then other PS3 Maddens.
- GameFlow returns but for someone like me who has played with the Steelers for many years, and knows their best plays, it's nice the conventional option was left. I was up and running in no time even though it had been many... Read more
