    Re: Madden 13 article

    Ugh, the Tony Rhomo slobbering.

    The sad part about Madden is that the players at the top aren't actually using football strategy, it boils down to a few plays that work more often than they don't, despite their football worthiness.

    I'm guilty of this too to a small degree, in that my playbook has about a dozen "staple" plays. But then from year to year these plays just randomly stop being effective.

      Pretty much. The game feels very mechanical - almost on-rails.

      I wish they'd rebuild the thing from the ground up.
      EA's FIFA franchise has gone from strength to strength, whereas their NFL and (even worse) NBA franchises have stagnated.

      EA will be terrified if they lose exclusivity rights to the NFL. 2K killed NBA Live and it'll kill Madden as well.

        yep, fifa series is the best sports games ever made. And they make serious changes every year to improve the game radically. And they push realism at the expense of everything.

        Madden developers on the other hand just seem to want to make an arcade game with an NFL license.

          Madden suffers from Elder Scrolls syndrome. Repeat an incredibly specific line over and over again, and it just sounds weird.

            Madden 2009 was the last madden game I bought, and I said after that terrible game I was done with the series until EA fixed it big time.

                    Have you played it? The animation, collision detection, commentary and visual presentation are still ahead of the current Madden titles. 2K5 felt like you were actually controlling the game rather than running through scripted routines.
                    You could lateral, catch and return missed field goals for touchdowns, sub players on the fly, fumble a snap and move the quarterback back to pick up the ball and throw it... i.e. replicate what you see in the real game. This was eight years ago.
                    Madden still has the same issues it's always had. EA has no reason to innovate because their game is the only one in town. They made sure of that. After 2K5 was released, EA paid through their teeth to get exclusive rights to the NFL. That's how scared they were of it.

                    2K was fluid and fun to play; Madden is still a clunky mess.

                        I still cant figure out how weight means absolutely nothing in madden.

                        You can put a 250 pound DE at 3-4 end and he is more effective than a 300 pound guy. Real life that would never work

                          People are stupid, playing with the giants in madden12 is playing with the team before they won the superbowl. They weren't a highly rated team in madden12. I don't play online but I've heard a lot of people talk about it and the giants weren't a favorable team to play with. I play mw3 online and its amazing the crybaby's out there in the world when u hook them up to a mic.

                              The receiver also has to be looking for the ball now too though. That will really help to limit the effectiveness of the quick slants from the slot and throwing the ball to the tight end almost right on the snap. Two of the harder things to defend in the game.

                                In all honesty, madden has to do two things for me to really improve the experience as far as offline is concerned.

                                1. Bring back the create-a-playbook. Not the custom play books from last year but the full on create-a-playbook where you create the entire playbook and plays from scratch. I used to sit for hours and hours just making plays and formations and testing them and redesigning them. It was so much fun.

                                2. They have to fix all-madden. I used to play all-madden on the older games but the last couple years it has changed dramatically. The all-madden experience is just about screwing the player. Your players are severely dumbed down compared to the CPU. Your line does not block. The runningback often gets hit before reaching the LOS or often the second the ball is in his hands. The receivers drop passes when they are wide open and well after what should be a secured catch. In the rare occasion that you have a receiver open, chances are the QB will over throw the ball, or throw it poorly to the defender nearest the receiver resulting in a pick. All-Madden has to be revamped.
