Everytime I play as the giants they suck. WRs drop passes like its going out of style. Eli's throws are inaccurate. I swear the game makes you throw at least one int every game. Tight ends can't catch. Bradshaw will fumble at the weirdest times. The only teams you can play as in madden are the super duper high ranked ones like the 9erz and ravens. If your a saints,rams,bills fan your screwed. Most people can't even even play as their fav teams cause the dumb game sucks at stats.

first of all, the gameplay sucks.

second, i'm sick of the ice-skate running

players wearing little mini helmets on the back of their heads like they're beanies. makes them look like the fat guy wearing the yellow sped helmet eating the giant hamburger.

the buggy connected careers mode that took the control from players who liked regular franchise mode

commentary sucks, crowd noise sucks and has no context

Eli looks like a mongoloid, with a beanie ****** mongoloid helmet and a gut

game is boring as hell

damn 2k for pulling out like spineless cowards. having no choice SUCKS

The game has been rubbish since the 06 iteration. People need to stop purchasing it.

They didn't pull out, they were forced. The NFL granted EA exclusive rights to their license in 2005, and they've had sole ownership of it ever since.


EA's contract comes up for renewal next year, so 2K will either be able to outbid EA for it and become the sole manufacturer of licensed NFL titles (doubtful), or hope that the NFL cedes exclusivity and allows anyone to attain rights once more (also doubtful).
The likely outcome is that EA lock up the license for another decade and render the NFL 2K series as nothing but a distant memory.

Money talks, and as with everything bad that happens to the NFL - this is Goodell's doing.

I disagree. I play as much worse teams than the Giants and wreck people (i.e. - Vikings, Chiefs, Chargers, Cardinals). If you think Eli is inaccurate then you must not play with a wide variety of teams. Try throwing with Kolb, Cassel, Ponder, etc.

The Giants are actually a good Madden team IMO. Offense has speed in WR and RB. Eli can make any throw and he's a 97 overall so your point is not really valid from a technical aspect. Defense is very good minus the linebacking core which is pretty bad. 3 solid corners in Webster, Thomas, and Prince. Sub in J Will as MLB on dime packages facing 4 or 5 WR sets.

My online record is 64-5 and I've only lost one game with the Giants.

Add me on XBL if anyone wants a game. My GT is Bad Fish 86. I usually only play Sunday nights. I will be a terrible team and you can be the 49ers, Ravens etc :)

In that games Patrick Willis or JPP could be shakes off by some no name RB from Carolina. I no what I saw and Eli acts colorblind in that game. And you say Eli 97 rank means something bu then say you can win with a low ranked teams so that's not exactly valid either.

Yeah. 97 does mean something and stats do too. Eli has the highest rated deep ball in the game. If you give me 1 on 1 press coverage on the outside with Nicks or Cruz with no safety help I will bomb that with Eli all day.

Without writing a paragraph about it, I win with low ranked teams by incorporating a partial West Coast offense mixed with ground and pound depending on their OLine and RBs. I make low risk, high percentage throws. You can't play the same way with every team. The approach/strategy I would use between the Giants and the Vikings is worlds apart.

What really ruins the whole thing for me is not being able to edit rosters without reseting pre existing injuries. Aggravated the hell out of me to the point I didnt want to play it.

This game is garbage, if you play all pro or better, your WR can be alone wide open and drop the ball, corners will drop the ball (user) if you let CPU try half of the time won't attempt to play ball leading to a TD. I play with giants, lot of running, short passes and try using the curls 99% success rate no joke. Lol. I play gilbride style, but my style work halfback draw with a lot of WR/TE motion. Control ball be balance. I'm 47/53 pass/run.

I do like the game but the INT's are really bad, like CB's diving and catching balls thrown over their head as they run towards their own goal line or DT's catching it from like 3 yards away , think my record INT's in one game is like 9 or something haha (i'm not that bad honest and i do play on all madden)

I had '13 for about a week before I traded it in. Last time I will ever buy a Madden game, its just the same game regurgitated year after year with minor tweaks that really aren't worth mentioning.

So of course I was in no rush to purchase to it. My son gets games through gamefly, so we put it on the list. It finally came last Monday. We both took a crack at it. Needless to say, it was back in the mail Tuesday afternoon---LOL!!

Gamefly is a good thing, you don't like it, send it back. Its better than being out $50.00. Because you can trade a brand new game 2 days old back to gamestop etc., and you will not get that $50.00 back.

Since the traditional franchise mode was not there, I tried the be the coach option, since that is as close to franchise mode. My son tried playing as be the player mode.

I like the newer rosters year to year, but not much difference otherwise. I was quite disappointed in Madden 13. I will not be in any rush to buy the next Madden, until after I talk to some people or read up on it.

I just hate gamefly because I think their monthly price is insane.

The series has stagnated big time. Since no-one else is able to make an NFL game, there's no need for Madden to improve.

I just have huge gripes with the lag in the online. Might be my internet though, but I've always heard they had problems with servers.

The thing I hate is the deep ball. The QB places it horribly. Instead of having to make an over-the-shoulder catch, the QB makes the WR have to turn around, and it is always swatted away.

That happens a lot. Also depends on the play.
