    Default Official Madden 12 Thread

    Thought I'd get this started for those who will be playing the game.

    It comes out in just over 30 minutes, and I'm hoping to get over to my local Meijer to buy it at midnight (hoping for no ridiculous line).

    First time I have bought the game on release day ever. I still play 2k5 but am a franchise junkie and with the roster cuts and improvements finally bought the game. A,m gonna have to mess around with slider to find something I like.


    I just updated my rosters on 2k so will be playing both this year. 2k franchise mode sucks so probably play a lot of Madden.


    I am really digging cut days Have been playing the game for around 40 mins pretty good but commentary is terrible. I feel bad for Gus he is good in real life but they make him sound so bad.

    I've had it about an hour or so and to be honest, I prefer last years game. Had a better feel to it and just liked the setup for it better.

    Obviously this game is still in that stage where rosters are inaccurate, players numbers are wrong, etc. But I'm just not really much into this game. In fact, I just put 11 back in...

    I didnt play 11 much i rented it but don't remember playing it.


    The rosters are pretty correct for me did you download them on Xbox live? (Ya a few numbers are wrong Pryors and a few others but it is tough they have most of the Bears undrafted free agents numbers correct even the ones who have no shot at making the 75 man).


    They are missing Kris Adams an undrafted free agent from UTEP who I really like. I doubt he makes the Bears roster this year but he should be on the practice squad.


    But every player is editable in franchise mode so i just made him out of an existing player who wont make the team.

    No I actually forgot to download them off XBL. Thanks for the reminder.

    Still, I prefer the gameplay of 11 to 12.

    If you are having that much trouble with a quarterback running, it doesn't have anything to do with the gameplay.

    It has everything to do with your play selection. Run more zone coverage, spy the quarterback, and use your defensive ends to contain.

    Yah I figured it was me. I'm noob. I'm playing a franchise season before I get back online. If anyone makes a online franchise lemme know, I'll play.

    I got a pick six with rodgers-cromartie and the announcer said I had " get away from the cops speed".

    NCAA 12 is the better game IMO.

    OMG...that's a terrible quote. Why in the world would they put that in??? Anyone else ever notice madden is the only game where people totally love it or think it is total hogwash?

    I played the demo, and it seemed to play more like an arcade then realistic. I don't know how they think fans want realistic grass over improved gameplay. And the hot/cold streak is just a gimmick.

    I actually thought the same thing but then I built some sliders that makes the game play more realistic. This is the most realistic Madden I have played (thats not saying much)


    I like this ulltimate team though been playing that a lot.


    Its never gonna be 2k football which is what I like but it is actually fun this year. The commentary needs an overhaul though.

    Does anyone else play the superstar mode? That is by far my favorite mode in sports games but Madden's has sucked for the last 2 years. Its as if they throw it in as a cheap add on. Way less in depth than NBA and MLB games.

    Whats this years Madden's superstar mode like?

    Is it even worth buying 12 if you have 11?

    Madden has a lot of hype and all but I am just not that impressed with it. Don't get me wrong I enjoy playing the game I just don't think it is as great as some make it out to be.

    I actually think the physical gameplay is much better...
