Madden NFL 13 Full Gameplay Videos

Posted August 25th, 2012 at 7:45 pm

Following the comprehensive impressions on gameplay and presentation and as a Coach in Connected Careers mode work continues towards putting other pieces together in the coming days for Madden NFL 13. In the meantime here are a collection of gameplay videos to view for those who aren’t playing the game yet through the Season Ticket program or are still on the fence as to whether to buy.

Given the length of these videos if only one is to be watched I’d suggest the Buccaneers at Falcons game. Continue on to check them all out and leave any observations on the videos or thoughts on Madden NFL 13 so far in the comments! 

  • hToEuXsAtNoSn

    obsessed with the Bucs much?

    • 49ersfan1

      hahaha lol

    • Jon Sanchez

      He started a Bucs Connected Careers, if you look in the previous posts.

    • http://twitter.com/Starfoxleon The Great Leon

      He is a Seahawks fan, but he picked Schiano as his coach in CC.

  • 49ersfan1

    @pasta as a niners fan, i understand losing to the giants in the NFC championship…

  • Crimson

    Thanks for posting these videos of the full game experience. After watching them, I’m definitely not on the fence anymore…I just saved $65 and it wasn’t from Geico. Thanks Pasta!!!

    • Crimson

      If the real NFL looked this dull, there would be no football fans. There is absolutely no “wow” happening in any single of these videos. What a boring representation of the NFL. Lifeless, jerky, and robotic looking players colliding and falling unrealistically all over the place. Two players run into each other and they both fall backwards in opposite directions. Downed players just unrealistically bounce super quickly back up in one motion like Michael Myers in a Halloween movie. Super slow BORING replays. All the players run unrealistically with, and without the ball, as if they had both of their hips replaced. The same injury animations from every Madden game this generation. Players still appear to be limping when they have an arm injury. Players are still doing super fast, and unrealistic 360 degree spin moves, after the catch when their trying to avoid being touched by the defensive backs as if this was still a Madden game being played on the Sega Genesis back in the day. Emotionless zombie looking player animations that still to this day, don’t look to be even cartoon-world human. This is just a sad unmemorable console generation of football games. Madden still sucks ass to this day, and this is the last Madden game of this generation. Save your money people. Go buy a good shooter or even a stupid Kinect game over buying this crap.

      • Jaymistic

        Do You ever type any positive messages?! I mean got damn…..I just see negative…negative….negative….negative comments from you. Shut the fuck up already and stop whining about the game, especially if you aren’t going to pay $65 for it . You aren’t buying the game and the game sucks to you. We get the fucking point. If you want a “Perfect” game then go the fuck to sleep and let a perfect game manifest within your dreams until it makes you have a wet dream. You will wake up with a smile on your face.

        • Crimson

          Dear Jaymistic…thanks for your heartfelt, uplifting comments. I found them to be both inspiring and helpful. I will take them into account on my next rant. Fuck you very much.

          • Jaymistic

            I didn’t need an essay. I didn’t read any of that bullshit. Goodnight dude and you are welcome.

          • Crimson

            LOL…come back and read it when you have the time. You know what they say….ignorance is bliss.

          • CSaintSwag

            the Season Pass is not overpriced you get it for a whole god damn year you fuckin dumb ass.

          • Crimson

            And do what with it? Its just a new suddenly acceptable way for EA to take extra money out of your current stepfather’s wallet. You get nothing tangible in return for the money. If you can’t honestly see that, you’re an idiot. Not so much because you bought the Season Pass. I just think you’re an idiot in general, but this is the internet, so hey, it’s no big deal to most of the people you’re gonna meet. LOL….don’t you go worrying too much about it.

          • CSaintSwag

            You also get 4 legendary packs for ultimate team and also 24 gold packs for ultimate team once again you dumb ass. They dont tell you any of that until you actually buy it so it is not like they tell you to bu it for that purpose.

          • Crimson

            Ultimate team??? Ultimate team??? Who the fuck even wastes time with that stupid nonsense? That’s the best you got? Virtual players??? Get the hell away from me with that stupid shit.

          • CSaintSwag

            Ultimate Team is a fun mode to play and a lot of people play it wtf are you talking about….. I do not even understand wtf you are talking about when you are saying virtual players because I am pretty sure I am not the only one who is going to be buying Madden which is all virtual players, and when you buy your broken down ass NBA 2k13 you will be paying for that game 65$ and it will be virtual players.

          • Skopin

            That’s right. Instead, you should order all 2k games early so you can get a part of the season like the All-Star Weekend. But you can get a very stripped down demo to see if it’s any good. Like one half with no commentary, no playcalling, and why not be limited to only being a single team?

          • Crimson

            You silly kids getting caught up in all that stupid preorder nonsense. That’s what the hell is wrong with gaming today. You idiots wasting your money on virtual crap.

          • Skopin

            Funny. I was referring to NBA 2k.

          • http://twitter.com/LiveLifeLyftd LIVE.LIFE.LYFTD.

            @disqus_bsd9QeZEvV:disqus I will admit after reading every single one of your comments it has slight swayed me from buying the game. Cause its the truth same ole game every year. However the season pass wasnt a scam , I will be downloading the NHL 13 early access in a few days.

          • Crimson

            The Season Pass is just an overpriced rental fee. Redbox for 2 bucks a day, and being patient enough to wait for the game to release is much cheaper. You would quickly find out that the game is crap for the very low price of 2 bucks, and probably return it the Redbox kiosk the same damn day.

          • Skopin

            All your posts are negative. You don’t even stay on topic half the time.
            [quote]

            LOL, before we do this 2K thing, Pasta can you dig up another NBA
            LIve13 video? We had so much fun with that last one, before it got
            pulled by the “STOP LAUGHING AT US ON EVERY FUCKING WEBSITE DEPT” over
            at EA Tiburon.

            LOL. Skopin…are you out there bitch?[/quote]
            This is your first post on an NBA 2k topic. You in no way even mention NBA 2k except to say before you talk about it. Which you don’t. Oh wait, let me check your second comment:
            [quote] If only Take Two could buy EA. The 2K folks would go in there and whip
            all of these EA clowns sorry incompetent asses, and then make them all
            unpaid interns, assisting the real talent from 2k. They need to be
            taught all over again, how to make a fun sports game that you don’t get
            tired of playing in just one month.[/quote]
            There’s a good description of your thoughts on the video. It really tells us what you thought of the video. Face it: you do nothing but hate on EA, and ridicule anyone else who has something positive to say, and if anyone says anything negative about 2k, you say they work for EA. Get over yourself.

          • Crimson

            Look at you bitch, my biggest fan. I loves you too.

          • Skopin

            Aka ” I don’t have a legitimate response, so I’ll try to make fun of you.”

            Also, it wasn’t me imitating you or Keith. I wouldn’t ever want to be you, even if it’s only to make fun of you.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000220160801 Mike Davis

        crimson STOP right there buddy it was WAY better on sega genesis

        • Crimson

          It actually was.

  • Crimson

    Do you really think you could play a whole season of this garbage? That
    should be a Guiness book dare. Play a whole season of Madden 13. I wouldn’t be surprised if there was a gold achievement that popped up on the screen in week 16 saying, “still haven’t traded in Madden 13″ or “played a whole season”. This game just looks like a chore to start a game and actually stay interested enough to finish it.

    ITS REALLY THAT BAD.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1803072744 facebook-1803072744

      Move along folks. Nothing to see here.

    • Corruptmind93

      …umm there are 17 weeks in an NFL regular season sir … and if you hate the game SOOOOOO MUCH, why waste your precious time nagging like a little bitch about it. You aren’t being constructive, you’re just complaining for no GOOD reason.

      • Crimson

        No good reason? No good reason? 7 years of the same lame football game is no good reason?
        And by the way Nancy, my time is not precious, I’ve got plenty of time for this. Can’t you tell? You’re mind isn’t THAT corrupt, its just got way too much stupid in it.

        • Corruptmind93

          lmao ….this guy …… gets so worked up over a video game. let me ask you a few questions? What impact has your bitching had on the production of this game? ….. have you even talked to, or met the people at EA and given them any ideas on how they could fix what’s wrong with the game?…or have you just sat on your ass and bitched about the flaws on PastaPadre for 7 years?.. ……If you haven’t done anything to try an better the game or get EA’s attention then how can you sit there and complain about something that you aren’t forced to play?……. EA will do just fine with or without your $65. If you aren’t looking to be productive, then why waste ALLLL that time you have bitchin over something you aren’t trying to help.
          ” You’re mind isn’t THAT corrupt, its just got way too much stupid in it.” lmao.. what are you 5

          • Crimson

            First of all, fuck EA. They wasted a whole console generation with this lying hype train of bullshit.

            Secondly, I’m 6, and my mom just said right now that I could tell you, “fuck you too!”.

          • Corruptmind93

            lmao… all you just said was “yes all i’ve been doing is sitting on my ass bitching to random people on the internet for the past 7 years.” Thanks for proving my point.
            How do I not know better, when I haven’t supported Madden in 5 years, but instead of crying and moaning like the 6 year old you are, I’ve actually been talking to people that have some type of connection to the Development of Madden this past year (they are part of the game changers program and the SimStandard). The people I talk to have seen what EA is trying to do with M14, so I feel pretty Comfortable with the state of madden as of right now. EA fan boy, I am FAR from that. NFL 2k5 has been my most played game over the years.
            SO, please tell moms to tuck you, read you a nice bedtime story about unicorns and butterflys, and give you a warm glass of milk to calm little crimson down.

    • CSaintSwag

      Well i just finished Season 1 with the Raiders and I won the super bowl and i did not get an achievement, and i never got bored actually, it was really fun, I wasnt even supposed to get to the second round of the playoffs (Conference Championship) but i got an interception with 1:50 left just after throwing an interception, and I was on my own 10 yard line. I drove down the field and got a game winning touchdown catch with Darius heyward bey, and from their it was golden.

      • Crimson

        You just brought up another point. There’s absolutely no fucking computer AI in the game. The computer is no challenge whatsoever. No wonder the fucking Raiders won the Superbowl. Shoulda kept your mouth shut about that one.

        FAIL.

        • CSaintSwag

          The Raiders are ass? I believe they almost made it to the playoffs last year but where cut short one game, and that was with a hurt Darren McFadden, also they didnt have Carson Palmer all year, and their owner for many years had died. Learn your sports dude like really all you know is fuckin video games.

          • CSaintSwag

            Not to mention they have one of the Best DT’s in the game Richard Seymoar and they also have great DBs.

        • Skopin

          I won the NBA finals with the cavs in nba2k12. What’s that say about their AI?

  • Crimson

    How many times have you seen a defensive back jump up to try and intercept a pass that’s already out of bounds. He’s already on the sidelines chalk and he still jumps to catch a clearly un-catchable pass? Its the end of a HD console generation and all the sideline personnel are still looking in the opposite direction of the actual gameplay on the field. What ever happened to the “Realistic NFL Films Sound” that EA was touting to be in the game? More smoke and mirrors?

    • SENZ

      Remember it’s just a demo, all those bad things will be fixed in the full version…

      ….oh wait….the full version has all the same problems as the demo? GET OUTTA HERE!

      • Big John

        The demo was a fucking warning. That’s about as nice as EA will ever be about warning you not to buy this garbage.

    • smsixx

      Crimson…its obvious your not going to be pleased with anything.
      Heres the solution, Burn your 360 and PS3 and just watch the games on Sunday!
      “Fact check analysis.—-TRUTH”

      • Crimson

        I would never even waste good money on a 360. As far as my PS3 is concerned, she’s my mistress and I absolutely love her.

  • Crimson

    Whats with all the flash bulbs going off all over the stadium in broad daylight? All the players bumping into each other, while walking around in different directions after a play. It just looks like one of those electronic football games with magnets on the bottom. Players just walking back and forth after a play with no sense of purpose or destination. This is 2012, and this type of thing is unimaginative, and just plain stupid. Where is the sense of realistic human life force on the field, where is the immersion? Sad. I can’t even bare to watch the whole damn video. Just too boring and lackluster, too uninspired. The NFL should be ashamed. John Madden should be ashamed to have his name on this uninspired product.

    • Crimson

      Yeah, CSaintSwag, in case you were wondering. I wrote this shit too last night. Those Madden videos are HORRENDOUS and gave me nightmares about the next generation of consoles, and only EA making football games again. That would suck.

      • asmckenna1215

        what’s with your weird “fact check analysis” things? you are so bizarre.

        i sound like such an EA apologist saying this but you have said nothing constructive about Madden. it’s not critique, it’s just being annoying. I challenge you, next time you post, not only complain about something, but also post how YOU would fix it. what should they do? and then see if it’s really a realistic solution.

        • Crimson

          You’re challenging me to do what the EA gamechangers were supposed to do? You want me to offer creative ideas to make Madden a better football game…for free? What is this…a fucking job interview? Thats some EA execs job to figure out why Madden is failing in sales every year, asshole. I speak for the fucking stupid yearly consumers of Madden. It may be annoying to you, but to me its called having a voice. Pasta asked for opinions and comments. He didn’t ask everyone to login here to line up to kiss his Madden loving ass.

          I’m gonna tell you the same thing the Madden creators told the EA gamechangers, when they offered up suggestions to make Madden a better game.

          “Suck my nuts”.

          “Madden ain’t never gonna change the formula, when knuckleheads like “asmckenna1215″, are still gonna buy it, no matter what we change about the game. Now, here is a bag full of free stuff. Go out there and defend Madden wherever an anti Madden voice is heard!!!!”

          Are we done now?

          • Skopin

            *cough cough* NBA 2k *cough cough*

          • Crimson

            You choking on it? Let me pull it out of your hungry mouth for a second so you can catch some of that dog spit caught in your throat. Let me know when you’re ready for some more.

          • Skopin

            Translation: you can’t deny it.

      • Riposte

        You only buy consoles for Madden? That’s messed up.

        • Crimson

          Did you buy a launch PS3? Did you buy Madden 06? Did you feel ripped off? Buy Madden 13, that old familiar feeling will be back within a week of ownership.

          • Riposte

            Nah, I didn’t buy a launch PS3, because that’s like the worst choice in the history of gaming. Launch machines always have the worst games because their basically ports.

    • ARealist

      Correction, John Madden is now part of the problem by agreeing to sponsor such a mess of a game, he stopped caring once they made the game 11on11
      That’s all the realism he could stand I guess. U think a football game called Madden would at least get the uniforms dirty after 20 years

      • Crimson

        Dirty uniforms? We haven’t even seen realistic field deterioration this whole season either.

  • Crimson

    I just saw two opposing players go up for a pass, slightly touch, and then jerkily, and unrealistically fall away from each other in opposite directions as if by force. Show me that kind of unrealistic human reaction to motion in any clip from the NFL Film’s archive. Pasta, if you’re really here to help EA promote this game, then remove these videos at once. These videos are gonna hurt the sales of the game a whole lot more than help them.

    • CSaintSwag

      Crimson shut the fuck up, last night watching the Saints vs Texans, they had a huge pile up and arms were getting bent behind back, guys were getting folded like lawn chairs, and Glover Quinn Jr went up for a pick right next to Marques Colston and they collided in the air and Glover Quinn Jr flew away from him, the shit happens I am starting to think you yourself don’t even watch sports. Because you also think that everything 2k happens in real life, when that is far from true. I am starting to think you work for 2k and are paid to come on here and talk mad shit to get people to believe you.

      • Crimson

        You shut the fuck up. The difference is that 2K is “fun”. Period.

        • CSaintSwag

          Actually I do not do meth nor am I cross eyed, maybe if you would watch football, you would see. Do you honestly think that just because the game isn’t fun for you it isnt fun for anyone else? That is not the case a lot of people think this game is fun and is going to buy it regardless of your idiotic comments.

          • Crimson

            I know its fun for you. So is riding in the front seat with the window down, huh, little fella? Doesn’t take much, does it?

          • CSaintSwag

            Nice attempt at being funny… Oh and i like how you thumbs up your own post and thumbs down mine you really cool dude..

        • Skopin

          NBA 2k is one of the most frustrating games ever. From being sucked into animations, to morphing/clipping, to awful AI. There are so many issues it’s not even funny.

        • smsixx

          Nice work with MLB 2k BTW

          • Crimson

            You want me to defend baseball? I don’t give a rats ass about baseball. I hate baseball.

          • Skopin

            But you skipped right over my NBA 2k comment. Why is that?

  • Crimson

    Looking at how this tired, boring game engine has been reused, over and over, this whole generation, here is the simplest, most honest line that every reviewer worth a grain of salt, should actually end their review with.

    “In conclusion, Madden NFL 13 is the best version of Madden 06 that has been released to date. If you loved Madden 06, then you owe it to yourself to rush out and get Madden NFL 13. If you didn’t care for Madden 06, go out and get it anyway, simply because you love NFL licensed football, and you’re just plain stupid.”

    • Amen_Ra

      Yeah nothing ground breaking AT ALL…but I got to cop it for that connected careers mode

      • daley7199

        Ah, the hypocrite Amen_Ra. Don’t try to make excuses. Connected careers is pretty much what you have been whining for, for the last 3 years

    • http://twitter.com/TreyIM2 TreyIM2

      So someone has to be “just plain stupid” to like this game, eh? LOVE how clowns like you always want to put down others OPINIONS with your own OPINION as if it is FACT, or, TRUTH, and try attacking them because they don’t agree with YOUR OPINION.

    • Skopin

      Fact check analysis—-^Hypocrite.

  • http://www.facebook.com/makin.edwards Makin Edwards

    Ive Been Playing the last few days and I’m not really impressed, they brought back a lot of features from the last gen which was much needed. As far as the physics, its just gimmick its not nearly as advanced as the back breaker physics engine it actually interferes with natural motion and player interaction at times. Its a decent game but not really worth the 65

    • Crimson

      It doesn’t even seem like an actual calculation based real time physics engine was created. They used the same damn animations from every game this gen. It just looks like more animations were created for increasingly unrealistic looking collisions. This is an outright sham.

      • Skopin

        How’s NBA 2k’s physics engine working out? Oh that’s right. There isn’t one. Only a set of animations you get locked into.

        Fact check analysis—-You’re a douche.

        • daley7199

          Why do you think 2k looks the same EVERY YEAR? You can only make so many canned animations. They are so stale that they can’t even switch up the announcers. Craig Seger is garbage. Doris Burke???????? Who ever thought of putting her sorry ass into the game. Its funny though, Every announcer team that was ever good in a 2k game, the game itself was garbage. NHL2k with Gary Thorne…..now with the EA NHL Franchise and Joe Morgan/John Miller with the mlb2k series. Get some real announcers for NBA2k and dispense with the tired old relics you got now

          • CSaintSwag

            speak the truth brotha amen.

  • http://www.facebook.com/makin.edwards Makin Edwards

    Ea Sports would have went belly up a long time ago if they didnt have the nfl license

    • Keith.

      I agree.

    • asmckenna1215

      or perhaps they would have tried harder because they had to compete with someone, and we would have two GREAT football games to choose from. the power of the “if” statement.

      • Keith.

        The way Live/Elite have competed with 2k?
        Tiburon can try all they want — trying hard doesn’t guarantee anything when it comes to Tiburon.

        • Skopin

          Damn EA basketball for trying to be innovative. All they needed was the dream team and Jay-Z and the games would be amazing.

          /sarcasm

          • daley7199

            2k fanboys are easily impressed. Maybe if Beyonce joined the 2k team the game would actually score a 100 Metacritic score. LOL

            Yeah the Dream Team is a real game changer too. I don’t know how I can survive another year of broken online play with out that famous 92′ team. /sarcasm

        • daley7199

          They can try all the way to the bank, fool. The numbers of people who dislike Madden is so miniscule. The game is money in the bank every year and will continue to do so. You 2k fanboys need to stop already and get over it. Its been 8 years and 1 generation of consoles since your beloved NFL2k5 hit the shelves. Its over. Buy Madden and STFU already. Your not going to get any other football game so quit your bitching.

          Do you honestly think at this point in time that even if 2k could make a football game that it could even hold a candle to Madden? That would be like saying NBA Live 13 with 1 development cycle under their belt can hold a candle to NBA2k which has been steady for 13 years.

          Look How bad Allpro 2k8 was and that was only 3 years removed from 2k5. Even if 2k got back into football, it would take 3-5 years before they were even a viable choice. So bottom line is that Madden is the end all be all b/c that’s the way EA wants it. Competition is great but it ain’t going to happen with football so get over it already.

          • Crimson

            What???

            Madden NFL 13 still can’t even hold a candle to APF 2K8.

          • Skopin

            Then why we’re the sales so low? They were on par with back breaker.

  • CardLover

    While I understand they improved by a mile this year across the board, I’m not going to buy Madden again this year…
    I just feel like by next year, physics engine would greatly improve and connected career would be more polished (both newly introduced feature).

    • CardLover

      …Right…? (Couldn’t trust the Madden developers since 2010)

      • Corruptmind93

        lls,,, is this the same dev team from 2010???? … NOPE

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Iown-You/100000775565221 Iown You

          If you think they dumped their entire staff since 2010–a number that ascends into the hundreds of people–then you sir will believe anything.

          This is the same team with the exception of a few people at the top and the addition of a bunch of low-level grunt programmers. If people would just pay attention to the credits, they’ll see that manpower has never been the problem because they’ve always had more than enough. It’s talent, that’s the problem. Talent, talent, talent and a lack thereof.

          • Corruptmind93

            lls .. ok… take a company that struggles in production, any company you want. Say that company has man power that has talent but the “few people at the top” who runs most of the operation are stuck in their ways of doing things a certain way, therefor all the “talent” is suppressed because they all have to take orders from a group of people that refuses to make the changes needed to give the consumer of their product what they want. NOW take those same employees, and change a “few people at the top” to some who actually listens to the community, and tells you he has a “three year plan” to get things right. By changing just a “few people at the top” you can completely change the culture of said company. You can take a group of “low-level grunt programmers”, and with the right leader, they can make something special.
            Without a head, the body of talent is wasted. That’s with anything in life. So, to say that this Dev team has the same vision as the last is absurd, and to say that these people don’t have talent is ridiculous.

            Everything you said is true with a few exceptions. The only thing is, I never said the dev team has the same vision as they had 3 years ago. I also never said they didn’t have talent. What I am saying is this:

            1. Their talent is lacking. There is a difference between no-talent and weak talent. Weak talent is still talent, it’s just not phenomenal talent like a number of other dev teams have in the industry. Tiburon has weak talent and their hiring practices are laughable. Why are they hiring guys off of message boards who’ve never done squat in any big-time capacity? How is that a smart personnel move?

            2. I’m not saying their vision is the same as it was three years ago, but it’s not that much different. They’ve been trying to hit the same marks for years and still trying now. Momentum, weight, presentation, all things they’ve been expressing a vision on for 5 years, and yet after 5 years they still haven’t gotten right. In 8 years total, they haven’t managed to nail much of any of the public objectives and promises they’ve made.

            Lack of talent has been a huge problem at Tiburon for years. All hype, no talent.

            The programming is what makes the game…

          • http://www.facebook.com/people/Iown-You/100000775565221 Iown You

            But in the hierarchy of a major game studio, the programmers–and more specifically, the low-level non-lead non-associate programmers–are usually lowest on the totem pole in terms of who makes the critical decisions and directions of the game.

          • Skopin

            Right, the higher ups do make the decisions, but great decisions can be ruined of the implementation is bad. The programmers do the work making the game.

      pretty sure this is the first “i don’t plan on buying Madden this year” comment on Pasta’s site that didn’t put down others for doing something different. not sure why you got down votes for it.

    I watched the video of the Steelers-Broncos (as a Steeler fan). Pasta mentioned in one of his reviews about the CPU AI and how messed up it was at times. Not going for it on fourth down when behind, punting it out of the end zone in the opponent’s territory, things like that. When I watched the video and saw the Steelers come out in a three tight-end, one WR set on 3rd and 9 in Denver territory, I understood that this is a game that would frustrate me beyond end. Maybe a patch can fix those things, but that is the main reason I can’t buy this. Those mistakes in logic will get unbearable after a honeymoon period.

    There have been some improvements but at the same time, those improvements need improved(physics engine). I played the demo and saw the opposing team field a kickoff, run into a bunch of their own guys at the 10 yard line, fumble the ball, and almost recover it in the end zone for a safety. Their drive started on the one yard line. My defense wasn’t within twenty yards of them when this happened. When on earth have you ever seen anything that stupid and ridiculous happen in a NFL game?

    i like how they have the field logos all backwards and all not facing the same direction in that giants game

  • mjtags11

    EA needs to improve stadium models. They are using the MetLife model from last season. No signs that Say MetLife where they are supposed to be, nor is the outside of the stadium (surrounding areas) correct. Really EA, at least you made this game somewhat good. Maybe next year they will finally fix the little things that make the game really good.

  • monty

    good dont play it .. There were 8000 people on line playing with the early release last night. EA will do fine the game is a ton of fun .. Everything about passing is more fun.. Even the defense of it. The handfighting is amazing as the balls coming in is amazing.. You can lead your receiver and he will adjust his route if you see a soft spot in the zone. The physics really work in the run game and pass rush. Played 4 games online and they were all good back and forth contests. Two thumbs up.

    • Keith.

      EA doubled the development budget this year. If they don’t also double sales numbers (and they won’t), then look for big cuts. EA, like any other company, doesn’t double a development budget without looking at its return on investment.

      • Corruptmind93

        so true, but i think they’ll be fine and in big part because of CCM, I know A LOT of people who disliked the demo, but are still buying the game just to play that mode. Also, more people seem excited for Madden compared to the past 5-6 years.

  • Don

    Pasta can you please ask EA why the physics were changed from the demo. Watching these makes the game look like shit compared to that. In the Saints video, I watched 20 minutes of it and their are literally almost no physics based events compared to the demo. Are people really that dumb to not know how to tell an animation apart from Infinity?

    • http://twitter.com/TreyIM2 TreyIM2

      I had the early access of the game Fri and yesterday (my Season Ticket from last year expired later in the day yesterday, tho, so I don’t have access anymore), and I didn’t notice a difference in the Infinity Engine. It actually seemed to me to be a bit improved, still holding on to it’s organics. A couple ppl who had the game earlier than that think they tuned it too much. From what I played, I didn’t agree, especially when running randomized play calling in practice mode where I just kept running play after play after play for about 30-45 min.

  • http://twitter.com/TreyIM2 TreyIM2

    I honestly dig this game more than ever. I’m not going to bang my head about what’s NOT in the game when it’s been very apparent that this game is making strides to get better. Ppl wanted a real time physics engine and we FINALLY get one in the game but it doesn’t even matter to the whiners because now they have to poke holes in that, too.

    It’s NOT perfect but the game is real fun. Most fun I’ve had with Madden, ever. I like seeing the tackles, the stumbles and tripping, the legitimacy of being knocked down by your own teammate. The passing game is funner than ever. I could go on about the positives and it being another step in the right direction for this game. EA is finally focusing on the nuts and bolts of the game and not so much gimmicks like previously done in years past. I applaud that.

    DB”s have better ball skills then WR’s
    D-linemen run like tailbacks

  • 49ersfan1

    why wont people understand that football is a much harder game to make than basketball and soccer (soccer might be harder than basketball cuz of all those teams) but have you noticed that every football video game (madden and nfl 2k) is exactly the same thing and nba 2k and live is most of the time good. and fifa and pes are always getting compliments.

  • deepen03

    did anyone else notice that after Jim speaks.. he hands it over to Phil.. but EA didn’t do the voice/mouth movement for Phil, so they cut away as soon as he begins.. FAIL.

    • asmckenna1215

      haha I didn’t notice that. but how long do you really want to watch Nantz and Sims talk before you start the game?

    Game looks good! Excited to plat CCM. Finally a deep franchise mode

    • KIpDIp

      CCM is trash and the Loonan guy or whatever the fuck his name is garbage truck juice.. The giants didn’t make the playoffs in my cc, I’m using the eagles and won the super bowl. My first reg. season game put me against the giants and the announcers throughout the game called the giants defending super bowl champs as if I was in play now mode… This game suck and my mind is made up. This is a no buy for me.

      • Skopin

        But if it was your first game, wouldn’t they be the defending champs? You do know they did win the last Super Bowl, don’t you?

        • Jesus

          No. In his first season, the Giants actually missed the playoffs. His user team is the Eagles and he won the Super Bowl. So now, going into the next season the Eagles would be the defending champs, so Phil and Jim should be calling Philly the defending champs.

          • Skopin

            Ah. I misunderstood. That is an issue.

        • Guest

          Did you understand what I said or you is Mr. I can’t comprehend… Read this very very slow ok………. Of course I know the Giants won the super bowl…. They is my brothers team and I’m a DIE HARD Eagles fan so I still here it from him… Now look… I played CCM and that first year of course the Giants are going to have bragging rights for their SB win the commentary did so when i played them twice. I was the Eagles of course… follow me so far… Now when I made it to the post season the Giants did not make the playoffs so they are dethroned. I won the super bowl against the Texans, did my off-season task, went into next season and the first game I get in week 1 is the Giants. When Eli hit the field to run his first play Jim started giving the Giants bragging rights again like they won the super bowl when I clearly did…. Which was annoying so I muted the commentary because it was driving me crazy… It’s bad enough we don’t have complete control of CC, and for me to witness that is terrible!!!! Went into third year after some simulating just to see if it would happen again and it did…. Sad

      • smsixx

        I love how you went on this diatribe about not buying the game but you already gave EA $20 by investing in “season pass”
        You kids are such hypocrites…It makes me sick.

        • KIpDIp

          Are you a retard or something….. Why do you think they created the EA pass in the first place!!!! So you can test the game before it drops and decide if you are going to purchase the game or not. Do me a big favor and get my sack out of your mouth…. thanks

  • http://www.facebook.com/Hinrichs81 Jordan Hinrichs

    My problem is with the gameflow setting in the game..with the game on the line down by a touchdown with 1:00 remaining and no timeouts they decide to call run plays..

    Is it just me or are the announcers worse?

    Best Madden ever

  • Longtimer

    EA and EA owned Tiburon r done with this gen, it’s so obvious, nothing new or innovative till PS4
    That’s all that’s left to say, you don’t remake a physics engine when the kits are out for PS4, u just change animations…
    Let’s not all b gullible fools for a change

  • http://twitter.com/VAStreamMonster Marty

    Crimson is killing yall today! Damn! This gen of consoles is coming to an end so don’t expect much more from EA in regards to Madden. (correction* don’t expect anything at all.) I pray daily that the license becomes free soon, I can’t take another 7+ years of crap EA football games, and I’d prefer not to be a great grandfather by the time a good football game comes out. (It’s been that bad this gen)

  • skimydia

    -Madden really needs to step up their game.

    -Ben Tate is a 71 with Justin Forsett being a 78. This is only one debacle made by the game makers but there are plenty more to be seen. Tate should without a doubt be the highest rated back up RB and probably ahead of RBs from AZ, DET, IND, WASH.
    -The new motion engine is cool, but a little too sensitive at times.
    -Freaking Gameflow needs to DIE!!! Isn’t it the same damn things as Ask Madden? Kill it and use that manpower/comp technology to make the game better.
    -The passing game is awesome, but again still a little sensitive.
    -NO FANTASY DRAFT??? are you freaking kidding me?? prob one of the coolest features of every single madden was this and they took it out? MENTAL DEBACLE!! someone may have to lose their job for that call.
    -the game is way too over thought. i understand trying to widen the market but lets be real, anyone who likes football will buy madden and has since it came out. swing the pendulum a little bit more to the real football peoples way a little more.
    -auto anything is lame. does COD have an auto anything? get real.
    -more sport oriented people, less brainiacs. play the game at some level before you do anything other than graphics
    -career center is lame. OF COURSE WE CAN BEAT JERRY RICE AND EMMITT SMITH’S LEGACY ITS A DAMN VIDEO GAME!!!!!! ILL THROW 5 TDs A GAME TO RICE AND IN 2 1/2 SEASONS HOLD ALL THE RECORDS!! onto the next idea.
    -FANTASY DRAFT!!!!
    -go back to Madden 12s menu interface. no one liked this interface on NBA 2K12 either…. copy cats
    -PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD DO NOT F UP NHL13 LIKE THEY DID MADDEN!!!!!!!!
    -Donnie, shoot me an email and let’s salvage what we can.
    -and big ben is not

  • Reggie

    I rarely post in the comments here but I must say that after playing the demo & the actual game the past couple days (room mates copy) I have to say I’m skipping on this years Madden for the 3rd year in a row since Madden 10.

    I didnt find anything “broken” about the game although I dont think the physics engine is that big a deal. I honestly was just bored, the playbooks seem untouched, the feel of the game seems to be the same and I’m honestly just tired of lackluster games like these. I’m not a big fan of the 2K anymore either, their games are okay but the NBA in general is just way too top heavy these days and playing online is just horrible.

    Back to Madden though, I honestly feel like they stay on a four year development cycle. I liked Madden 2002, 2006 & 2010. So I’m guessing Madden 14 will be worth a purchase but they always focus on a “big feature” when I personally would just like a refined game. They sell people on features one year then remove them a couple years later which is crappy IMO.

    Growing up all I ever played were sports games and fighting games. Now I mostly play shooters/fighting because this generation of sports has just gone to crap. I cant say that I miss playing either after so many years of getting burned…

    —————————for those who like this generations sports titles, I can only hope to join you again one day.

    • Tee

      @Reggie – Very well written….I wonder if longer dev cycles would be in the future as well
