I'm curious to see what other people think. Yeah, the new entrances are nice, but aren't you going to skip through them after about the 2nd or 3rd time?

I skipped through the bears intro after the first time, not interested in the Bears or Their introduction. Elements has a few good points, mostly hating. I think overall it was good showing for madden.

i actually like this game, its way different from last yrs, the feeling of this game and cpu play is way better, elements u must be playing on rookie...

Graphics are way better, sry to say im not going to be looking in the stands at people if there standing or not..

I think they need to fix player def they stand behind the wr's so its always an open pass and always catch the ball... cant run the ball on all madden which i like before you could run all over the def...

1. Guys running through each other
2. Footballs being thrown from wrists
3. An all black 2-d symmetry driven crowd? Half stand and sit at the same time?
4. Usain Bolt QB's
5. CPU QuickSnap
6. Little to No realistic approach
7. I could go to 100 if you let me!

OVERALL SCORE: D+, EA Sports, you should get a hold of real gamers/football fans and quit taking terrible advice from developers who think they know the game. Noobs
ur one of them guys that want a perfact football game huh

Pretty average gameplay wise. The major gameplay improvements in this years game were in older games like Madden 04 and 05. Still need to work on animations, mirrored coverage, oline/dline interactions and the QB sliding around super fast in the pocket. 13 should be a good game, 12 is nothing more than a stop gap.

Ehh, it is what it is. What you gonna do? You buy it or you don't, either way EA gets their money. I'm still waiting on FIFA 12...
 
# 8 MrBallaBoy21 @ 08/09/11 08:12 PM
I honestly haven't seen much gameplay improvement. It still seems like the same ol' Madden to me. Wether that is a good or bad thing is for each person to judge for themselves.

I like the demo for the most part. Intro was good but pretty much skipped it after the first few times. Gameplay for the most part is solid. Accept on PA you are getting sacked most of the time by the AI. Even if I have balance run and pass game. The AI always finds a way sacking you on the PA when you do it. It seems the AI always get the boost ratings once it comes to PA. Because while your in the process of doing the PA animation the AI D is already in the backfield ready to sack you once the animation is done. It just get annoying so much. But other then that problem the game is pretty solid. Can't wait to see how the final version turns out.

i agree legend, same goes for there rb, they will juke your AI players and than your screwed cause now hes down the field and the rb just killed u... You have to straight up tackle forte or else hes gone, and also grant...

What is different is if there is no one open the qb cutler wont stay in the pocket, one game he ran for 60+ yrds on me... Now i know cutler has never ra it for that many yrds... just cant stop cutler from running the ball, also every pass he throws is almost instant, and my def will play behind the wr instead of in front if the wr, so than he gets out played every throw, i know this madden is just an upgrade, and I wasnt going to buy this like ncaa was an upgrade... but this game is just so different from 11, that i am going to buy it..

Waiting for Fifa 12!

The cameras are messing with my eyes honestly. Game plays well IMO, but I can't get over the cameras. Also I feel there are like a million buttons to hit to get to pre snap stuff... does anyone else have this issue? I'm finding nothing simpler or quicker just like last year.

But overall I think this games demo was to make you get the season pass to see if you can change the cameras, tweak stuff here and there.

It just doesn't feel right. QB slides too quickly in pocket and players in general move with too much speed. My problem is I am a pro football guy but NCAA plays so much better. Weighting and speed feels more realistic in NCAA. Menu systems are better. It makes no sense why two football games by same publisher have to be so different. I am extremely disappointed in the demo.

I thought it was fantastic, personally.
 
# 15 alkamist @ 08/09/11 09:45 PM
the differents in both games is in ncaa every player has like 99 spd, in madden its based off oldness, and how they do every yr... way different titles and play standards, you cant put both together, cause in madden they got 12 yr vets and in ncaa they got only 4 yr players... some only 1 yr...
 
# 16 fitch94 @ 08/09/11 09:56 PM
I actually like it too. I thought the presentation of the game was much better and it seemed to run smoother than past years. I love the fact the stadiums look better than previous versions. I really want each game to feel different and I get the sense that it will. The biggest problem that I have had with the series is the Franchise Mode which obviously was not answered in the demo.

This demo is crap, plain and simple, the camera's are in the way, it breaks up the GAMEPLAY, i don't care about seeing a DT's butt, i want to see the Qb snapping the ball so i can sack him, yet with one of the top DE's i cant get a sack, from a o-line that is just horrible but as soon as i have the ball i'm getting hit. Players were getting hurt way to often, DT's can still catch hester(98 or 99 spd vs 60's spd), after failing on a 3rd down in the 2nd quarter it gave the packers the ball right then and there, no punt, Wr's cant and wont catch a football except the RB, running is easier than passing, with so many drops and knockdowns from heaven, etc

Maybe You Just Suck?

ITS a DEMO for cryin' out loud! Why all the negativity? MATTER OF FACT, this demo is 10x better than last years game. I agree with a few of you guys about the intros. Its a nice touch but after a time or two, who cares.
I gotta feeling that this year is going to FINALLY be a good Madden offering. Yes, there are some things that are a bit off, but it's not a deal breaker
 
# 20 bmj2k7 @ 08/09/11 10:22 PM
I wasn't talking about me sucking, i smashed the packers btw on all pro, but i was talking about how bad the cameras are, how someone with 30 speed slower can catch the faster player, how annoying it is to skip to the gameplay every single play, how forte could run all over the pack and never once be stopped, how wr's dont even try, how once on 3rd down it gave the ball to the other team, how this games lags so horribly on very fast, so many dropped balls, a top 3 DE cant get a scak but a crappy one can, so many knockdowns on both sides and yet no int's, thats what i was talking about
