Anyone try the demo yet? I'm liking this years madden a lot right now. Graphics are much better and the commentary doesn't suck. The presentation feels like you're watching a game from home.

I stopped buying those. I hate having to re-up every year for the same fucking product. "Hey look, we tweaked the graphics a bit and added a new tackle animation!" Show me something new, you cunts. I miss the days when EA didn't have a monopoly on football games. ESPN2K5 is still the best.

I'll be there at Midnight...
I honestly never notice any difference, but for whatever they cost, I'll pay it vs creating 90 new players or messing with a download roster, etc.

Plus, I want to play online.

Anyone have an opinion on what system is better for Madden? Xbox or PS3?
I have both...
Really only care about the online game play I guess.

Secondly, is it true that PS3 is free to play online? I'm confused because I know I have to buy the XBOX Live. I just haven't played anything online with the PS3... But a friend said it's all free on PS

They let the players vote on ratings and cater to the thugs who think the game is realistic. Fuck EA.

I posted last night, but it was wiped out...

Got it at Midnight. I don't know, it's basically the exact same game it's been since 1995, I don't really see/get the differences.
They changed "Franchise Mode" to "My Career" where you can be a player or coach. Coach = Franchise Mode.

But really, it's the exact same as last years with up-to-date rosters. I'm sure more "Gamer" types can tell game play differences, but I can't.

I heard the biggest difference is the legends roster....

Dunno, haven't bought the game since 05, and I loved that game. One of the best ever.

Some people are upset that you can't do an Online Franchise with a player draft. You've gotta just pick an NFL team; But I don't do that

The last I purchased was 09 or 10. I sold it after a week because the AI and controls were maddening (pun intended). You'd get a hole and try to run your player through it and your guy would move like molasses and the hole would close or you'd start to get in the clear and you were tackled because you stepped on a foot from the opposite team.

I got mlb2k12 on Monday and I don't like it. Lacks the fun factor and batting is nearly impossible. Might return it but don't know if I should get madden or not. I've read some review sites giving it a 7.5. IGN gave it a 9. Really torn on it.

I bought PS3 just so I could get The Show. 2K is awful...
If you've liked Madden in the past, you'll like this one. It's essentially the same, unless you're a crazy gamer.

I'm enjoying this years madden much more.
The defense is easier to use. When switching to a db while the ball is in the air you don't lose a step. User pics are much more frequent for me.
I like that receivers' icons don't show up until they are open. If you throw to them when the button icon isn't "lit" you will increase the likelihood of a pick. I seem to run into and trip over my offensive line once in a while and that is somewhat annoying but it happens.
I did notice a glitch. I was trying to stop someone from scoring. I hit the guy at the ten and he "flew" into the end zone for a touchdown.
