    EA Sports is ruining every franchise sports wise. Madden is one of the best examples. The best madden is about the 2003. From then on it got worst. Espn 2K5 had so much more to offer. In Madden 2012 it allowed the user to have the coach pick a play and have the user try to execute it. 2K5 had this feature and it was made more than half a decade sooner. The last madden i have ever bought was m 06. It was awful. I Broke it in half. If you have a ps2 still try 2k5. The game play is addicting. Expand

    It's the one I started my NFL gaming life with, and it's the first time knowing about football. Classic. New lead-blocking controls, NFL Superstar mode! what more can you ask for?!

    Considering that many of the gameplay features are extremely mild remixes of previously included gameplay options, this year’s Madden comes across as a solid title, but one that’s starting to show its age.
  2. EA's challenge is not to simplify their simulation or stop adding detail, but to integrate those features so well that players can simply marvel at how advanced the game has become. The Superstar revisions are a step in the right direction, since they allow players to focus on the entire game one player at a time, but otherwise that's just not the case.
  3. It’s so polished and refined. For the first time ever the series incorporates some of my favorite features from "NFL Street" (such as tapping the X button to escape a tackle). That function goes way back to the days of arcade sports titles like "NFL Blitz."
