Just wondering how everyone likes this game. Is it worth a purchase?

Have been in the process of moving the last 2 months, so haven't had much time for checking out the new games. I was a huge 2k fan, and just can't seem to get into Madden.

Best animations in a football game. The gameplay blows Madden out of the water. Just too bad that their is no franchise mode. If this had the NFL license there would be no need to ever buy Madden again. I'm also having a hard time getting into Madden. Download the demo on Xbox Live or the PS Store. I have it for the PS3 & 360. I don't think you can go wrong with a purchase. The rain & snow also blow Madden's out of the water. Amazingly it also has refs & nets on the goalposts.

I have All Pro, Madden, and NCAA. All Pro is a rent. It has the potential to be better. It's gameplay, presentation, etc is actually better than EA, but it lacks anything more than a one season. No franchise, no trades, and only 11 of your players are legends. The rest are made up. I had Karl Mecklingburg on the team along with three other 77's. Also, you're team only gets a few "great" legends while you can play the computer's team and they can have 5 or 6. If they get it to the point where you can get a franchise, trades, and ALL legends, look out. Until now, you can't beat actual teams and players in college and pros even if you're an EA hater.

Rent All Pro, buy Madden, buy NCAA.

I have no allegience to 2K or EA. I buy the better game.

downloaded the demo, and it seems like a great playing game. I'm not to worried about franchise modes and all of that crap, I really like playing online, and the look and feel of the demo is what I have been missing since 2k5. From a gameplay standpoint, it just seems so much more polished than madden.

i never was a big 2k football fan but this game beats madden on the field. the only thing madden has is the nfl liscence and that is a big thing. i dont play me 2k football to much only because i love playing with the pats in franchise mode and that isnt an option in this game. i wish bofe games offered real players because madden has only gone down hill since they where exclusive.

hey we are just giving our honest opinion you on the other hand are saying we are lieing. now i myself tend to trust people who give their honest opinion and not the people who say everyone else is lieing. madden is far from "right". have you ever watched the replays of catches or int's? instead of making the game smarter the devs from madden simply put in the code for NBA Live which makes the ball magicly turn on a dime and go into the cpu's hands. to me that is just lazy programing. how about players running wrong plays or not blitzing on time. then there are the players who run the right plays and when they get to the qb they just pull up give the qb about 1-2 extra counts then as the ball is thrown they finaly tackle the qb. how about blitzers who run straight past the qb and right into the blocker on the opposite side of the qb (that is part of the magic hands the game reads the back is supposed to block the defender so it magicly sucks the blitzer into him). QB's who can look one way and throw to the opposite side of the field for a perfect 40 yard bomb. then how about qb's who do 360's while jumping in the air to deliver perfect passes.

madden is far from "right". this year ea put a silk hat and cape on a pig but once you get down to it it's still a pig wearing a hat and cape. it's not that bashing ea is the "in thing to do", it's more like ea's quality isn't what is once was. i for one like madden and play it a whole lot but it doesnt mean that it's a better game of footabll.

I honestly think that commercial w/ S. Merriman and S. Jackson is the best ad I've ever seen.. I love that commercial.

Are you F'ing kidding me? Madden got it "all" right my ass.. Have you even tried playing the cpu, or running a franchise??? You can't.. I don't see how you could do either of those things on a regular basis w/out breaking half the shit in your living room.
I will say that I'm having a blast playing against other humans and that part is great, but still not "ALL right". For refs on that read bboncorr's post.

it might be to fix the punter glitch. some people have reported after a couple of seasons played in franchise the punters and kickers dissapear in the f.a. list. there are a ton of glitches in this seasons franchise mode that show up after the first couple of seasons.

From what I've been reading is that patch does nothing but f's up the whole game. It resets the roster to default and for a lot of people, jams the game with error codes so I've been staying away. Geez, with this from EA and the PS3's problem with going from 1.92-1.93, someone in the patch/update department is really messing up.

i updated and it didnt do anything to my game.

another note on why madden is not that good,

today im playing the redskins and randy moss catches the ball on the side lines but it is called incomplete. so now i'm on 3rd down. the booth challanges the play and reversed the call on the field so now because the catch is good it's a 1st down. i even double checked to make sure it was first down because i wanted to do a run play and didnt want to make a mistake with that. so i definetly saw 1st & 10 on the screen while picking the play. so after the run i notice something odd it's now 4th & 3. now that is odd because my run didnt net me any yards and if the out of bounds pass would have been held up then that is exactly the situation i would be in now.

i have read of other people dealing with the same b.s. with reviews. the game just does not register the over turned calls.

Here is what the patch addresses:

Franchise: Editing a player causes his contract value to change

Franchise: Former user coaches do not fill their new team's roster causing the game to stop simulating.

Franchise: The game crashes when simulating if the user releases all the HOF players from the Player Management Menu and then starts a franchise

Train for This Game: Certain Player Weapons Stat Points are not being recorded after Training.

Online: In Game: If the Client pulls connection at the end of game, prior to the Match Up screen, they will crash the Host.

Online : When the client ejects disk after the game clock has been reduced to 0:00 but before the opponent gets the match-up screen the Host will crash.

yeah i hate some of that b.s. because you know the devs dont get alot of the ratings right. how can they realize marony (pats running back) should have a high speed rating, acceleration, and agility ratings on the first update from last seasons version but they dont keep that rating this year. like he lost 3 steps over the summer. rodney harrison has always been considered one of the smartest safties in the league but this year they decided to give him a low awareness rating. i see things on other teams also but i know the pats better so im just gonna comment on them.

i'm so glad the ratings bug is fixed now i can bump up some of the ratings slightly without taking the guy from a 1 million salary to a 6 million salary just for making him a little faster. thanks for posting this eck because now i can start over my franchise.

sorry but madden is not any where close to being a perfect game of football. there is so much lazy programing in that game it makes me sick. they basicly took all the corner cutting that live is known for and thrown it into madden. they didnt make the a.i stronger they just game the cpu magic hands. the didnt make the blocking better they just gave the blockers magic hands which suck the defender into the block. you can have a wide open shot at the qb and run right past him because your getting sucked into the blocker on the other side of the qb. then there is late response to the catch/int/swat buttons. it makes it really hard to play with the wideouts or cb's. then there is the horriable attempt at gang tackles. you can tackle the running back with a lineman and get draged 5-8 yards then when another defender attempts a gang tackle he will knock the original would be tackler and get draged another 3-8 yards. it's like the game puts a value on the tackle and it restarts once the defender gets knocked off.

horriable run defense. i cant remember a game which the run defense support from safties and corners was so bad. i like to run cover 2 which is good to play against running teams. this puts the corners and safties in position to see the run rather then lock onto the wideouts and turn their backs on the run. well you can have a sweep coming at your safty and suddenly he will run away from the play (deion sanders style). i have seen way to many safties run away from 1 on 1 situations v.s. a running back. then lets get into players running the wrong plays. i have picked blitz and see players drop into coverage then blitz way to late or players who are supposed to be in coverage suddenly blitz for no reason. defenders pull on on making the tackle. there is just no excuse for this. way to often defenders take bad lines at the ball carrier then pull up instead of making the tackle. i had a sack lined up against the cpu only to watch a 180 degree spin and throw go for a 80 yard pass. 40 of which was in the air. after watching replays i noticed the defender got to the qb and just stopped for a 2 1/2 count. the more i looked for this the more i saw it.

then the next thing is qb's who can do a 180 degree jump and throw the football 40 yards down field prefectly on target without looking. now that is just insane. michael vick on his best day couldnt have done that and im watching pennington and other scrub qb's do it like its a common thing. have you ever been to the ea forums. this game is getting trashed more often then last years version. the more people play this game the more they realize how sneaky was this year.
