    this game was pretty good just complicated but it made a very very hard game that it was too complicated. this game should you playcoins so you can buy super good football players

    Madden is usually associated with franchise mode and multiplayer. Well, this game isn't. All this game contains is single player action. The modes the game does offer are very good and enjoyable to play. The soundtrack is very good and enjoyable. Without key features, this game isn't up to par with other Madden NFL titles.

    this is a pretty good lil football game for on the go as a launch game im a tad more forgiving then most it still its fun for a play even though it has no online franchice or fantasy draft options

    It's a decent football offering for the 3DS. It kind of sucks that there is not a multiplayer or online option. As well, the AI is not that difficult to defeat even on the most difficult setting., if you are just looking to kill some time and you are a madden fan, it is fun. I would pick it up as a used game though.

    The game is ok however the game was just too simple and didn't have many features (multiplayer and franchise mode) that the Madden games are known for.

    More tech demo than anything else. [May 2011, p.65]
  2. Decent gameplay let down by a lack of any multiplayer or other modes whatsoever.

    Madden's first outing on the 3DS is disappointing, not for its gameplay but for its lack of multiplayer and rushed 3D graphics. Sadly, it feels incomplete and there's little reason for a purchase, especially with Madden 12 just a few short months away.
