    Best sports game, so far on Vita. Great graphics, great gameplay, great announcing by Phil and Jim, and overall a must buy for any NFL fan or sports fan in general.

    This is a great game for a mobile version. Had PS3 last year, and this versions identical, which amazes me to no end. I was hesitant due to reviews, which now seem ridiculous. Game plays great, the delays are when you go thru depth chart menues, etc. Great graphics, great gameplay. I miss no chaingang, about it. Apparently critics sour on no cross-play, but for someone who only has Vita,This is a great game for a mobile version. Had PS3 last year, and this versions identical, which amazes me to no end.

    This is better than I thought it would be, the game lags a little in between plays, but on the field gameplay is smooth. I keep hearing this is just a port of madden 12 from the ps3 version, I wouldn't know cause this is the first madden game I brought since 2004.

    I thought this game was really good for being a portable device game. since the new patch they have fixed some of the problems that were in it at first and also the online is awesome.

    This is a great game. Graphics are wonderful. Gameplay is smooth. Online is buggish but i dont play online much anyways. Overall great game. Maybe the best one out for the vita so far.

  1. IF you don't own a PS3, there's some fun to be had slinging touchdowns here. [Dec 2012, p.114]
  2. In a vacuum, Madden NFL 13 is great. That's good enough for some of us, but others will lament what it could have been. [Nov 2012, p.83]

    Madden NFL 13 for the Vita is more disappointing than anything else. It feels like the pieces were in place, just not ready for prime time.
