After the first caller I had to turn it off. Dude said he spent 60 for the same exact game as last year.
It's definetly not that. The majority of this has been about how Madden is GOOD, not great and the people who liked M11 will like this one as well.

They are discussing the problems and errors, but also the improvements and things they enjoy. Overall I think this has been a far better representation of the game than some of the other websites reviews thus far.

Tough to justify $60 for a game that is very very similar to last years, with still the same nagging bugs!

Depends on what you classify as similiar. Do you only play exhibition game and never finish a year in franchise mode? Yeah, probably not worth it. Are you a franchise nut and have been waiting for long awaited franchise changes? Probably a good buy.

Either way, it's worth at the very least a rent.

Good Job Chris and co. I was gonna call in but my radio voice is so good I didn't want anyone to worry about me taking their job.

In all seriousness that was a great analysis of Madden 12. You know what you are getting with it by now.

Great shows guys!!!

I am glad to see that honesty and reason are finding there way into the Madden discourse this year. For a while now, a lot of things have been obvious but gone unsaid and I am glad that is not the case this year.

If EA would come out and say some of these things right upfront, I think more gamers would accept Madden for what it is but still enjoy it.

Lets face it. This is the same game as last year with a roster update.

Yeah seriously. This is NOT just a roster upgrade. I can honestly say that this is the best next-gen Madden since 08 with Vince Young on the cover...gameplay wise. I'm having a blast playing and am glad I got the early release because it reassures me that once I get the game Tuesday (or Monday night), I will be playing a solid game right out of the box. I'm sure that there will be a few patches that can iron out some things that I'm not even going to nitpick on but like I said. Out of the box, this is the best next-gen Madden ever.

I haven't played my retail game, yet. Seems like you have.

You mean like DPP, franchise mode and zone defense tightening up were from last year.

Might need to take the game back if it's only a roster update.

Anyway, Madden has always had sliders to get the game you want. There hasn't been a game of Madden or for that matter, any sports game that I haven't adjusted sliders after opening the box.

A good balanced show.

Franchise mode alone should alone keep me engrossed for a long time. I think I will get used to the clunky interface.

I liked how the second caller pointed out that this Madden game, while the best of the next generation systems, is being reviewed on a average a point, to a point and half lower than Madden 10 and 11. While this game is has a ton of flaws, no way is Madden 10 or 11 even close to being half as good as this game.

If you listen to the show most guys are saying the game is the same as last year.

And I've read all the impressions on the stickies, and it sounds great. Plus I thought the demo itself was a lot better then Madden '11. You don't have to worry about me, all the franchise changes alone warrant my $45 (got a few discounts).

In the end, I could give 2 rats asses what everyone else thinks. I know I will be putting tons of hours into this years Madden.

I listened too and they all said it's a good game, just not a sim game, yet.

Good show guys. I hope you make these more of a regular thing.

Great point about the suits vs. the developers. Devs get a bad rap far too much, it is unwarranted for the most part.
