The Madden ’12 Review: Is it everything it should be? - Shutdown Corner - NFL*Blog - Yahoo! Sports

Good review. Definitely agree the in game commentary is horrible. Easily the worst in any sports game out there.

Re: Madden 2012

ok i have been playing my demo. My son (3) loves to play it he only uses the joystick on the left and pushes the A button. He loses most games by a few points but he actually one a game last night.Pretty sad if you ask me speaks volumes to how much of the game is simulated vs. what the actually user does.

Re: Madden 2012

Well yeah, if you don't take control of a guy the computer plays it for you basically, and of course the computer plays the other 10 guys around you that you're not controlling.

He controls the guy just has him run forward, when passes he just throws to the A receiver. Mind you it is on the default demo setting but still you have to admit if a 3 year can win this game it ain't all that.

Defense is a real joke that is nearly completely simulated.


AND he always spots the computer 2 points because his first series he always pushes back on the joystick thus giving up a safety and I have to remind him to push forward for the next time he gets the ball.

Re: Madden 2012

I must really suck then, I lost 3 of my first 4 games. The computer is no joke this year, coverage is tighter than ever, DBs jump routes like crazy, and you will pay for making bad passes. No more completing passes with a DB standing right there like nothing is happening. They'll jump the route and pick it off.

Try just mashing the A button frantically and move the joystick all over the place. You be All Madden before you know it. =)

Re: Madden 2012

Madden 12 is so much better than 11. I'm loving the presentation and smoother play. Hopefully they've worked out all the gimmicks people run online. There are still a lot of glitches but they are worth overlooking.

Can't wait to have a roster update in a month and have the Skins O-line and Hightower beasting it.

Re: Madden 2012

I'm down at a friends house in Panther country right now, he bought Madden 12 today and I got to play both a 1 on 1 game with him and a game in franchise mode, and now I'm really tempted to trade in some games and go buy Madden 12. Franchise mode looks totally revamped and good looking, the game feels a lot smoother, the presentation has been stepped up, the in game commentary still sucks but that won't matter since I'll just pop some music on and mute the comm, and overall I'm a lot higher on it than I was at this time yesterday LOL. I don't like that they eliminated the "My Skill" level but that's a minor setback. I'm curious to see what franchise mode feels like, and I really look forward to beasting it up with Kerrigan and Orakpo on D.

I have gold membership and latest roster. What I want is for our o-line's and hightower's rating to go up. I mean, I want to run over people with improved player rating.

The game commentary is my only big gripe with the game. It's easily the worst that's ever been in any sports game.

But they hit on the things that matter. Gameplay & presentation are much improved, and franchise mode is much deeper now, Madden 12 is a big improvement over any previous years. Big.

It is pretty ridiculous. I usually tweak the difficulty ratings to a reasonable level. I like a challenge, but for instance I played against Arizona, and I felt like I was playing the All-Madden defensive team.

Also, why are the first two Redskins games in the rain? It's kinda crazy.
