Here is a few points why you should not touch this game:
First, except for the menus and rosters, the game is the same as Madden 10.
The realism is not truly there. It is an arcade game with many bugs. Some big ones.
The franchise mode is disappointing. No difference at all with Madden 10.
The superstar mode is ridiculous. There's no point of creating a superstar anymore.
If you buy the game used, you'll have to pay 10$ to play online.
To play the mode Ultimate Team, you also need to put money in it, and a lot...
Also, there is a new feature called 'Madden Moments Live', but you also have to pay for it! Someone smell the scam?
Finally, the multiplayer is always lagging, making the fieldgoals is really tough. So many choose to go for it instead. Even if you play with friends near your home, it is always lagging...
For those fans who want to take a controller, play a game quickly, enjoy watching the tailgate and pre-game warm-up, this game is fine. But if you are a gamer who love football and want a game with a minimum of depth and simulation, this game will frustrate you... With a poor product like that one, we can only hope that the NFL will open his license to other companies...
