    I been buying madden every year for over 20 years now, why stop now? Madden has been the best football game out there every year. What the fools don't understand is that it's not easy to improve on greatness, I give EA kudos for trying, even if it just seems like a little bit to the avg fan.

    I just hate the fact that it comes out so close to NCAA Football, and that 5min demo isn't helping either!

    making pre snap adjustment is just terrible in this one it takes almost 5 seconds long to do one hot route or onfense or defense i used to cutomzie my blitzes and other plays by using defensive hot routes but i can barley do one before the snap is called this is completely horrendous if i had a roster update to madden 10 and made u play both games ud say 10 was the better game so disappointed ea better step up there game, no wonder they have to keep getting exclusivity deals because this is absolute crap they should be ashamed and so shouldthe nfl for letting them but this garbage out if i was the nfl they would get no exclusivity deal next time around cause it seems like they sit on there ass for 10 months and add three features and stats to make a "new game"

    I've always been a casual sports game player, i would pick up a basketball or football game every couple years but i played the demo and i'm pretty impressed i think the gameflow is very appealing to me who is not very good at calling plays so im seriously thinking about picking this one up. And for those of you who loved the old play calling you can still use it so stop complaining.

    The new Madden must be made for soccer fans or something b/c I am a die hard football fan and they have removed everything that attracted me to the game. I guess EA wanted to create Madden for dumbasses and they have succeeded by removing all the strategy from the game and assuming the short bus AI could even approach the decision making skills of a human, and no assigning a weighted value to a play doesn't even begin to approach the process of picking the proper play for a particular situation. Thank god for NCAA football!

    I stopped caring about quality NFL games when EA was the only way to play it. The two are mutually exclusive evidently.

    the new button layout for routes and shifts sucks, it takes way too long now, where as before you could do it without looking at the screen

    then, there's the fact that the flaws have still yet to be fixed: player catches ball out of bounds, you challenge the catch because the guy was standing on the sidelines when he caught it, you watch the replay and they come back with "the ruling on the field stands as called." or when you get the ball off a punt and when the offense comes to the field the clock is still running, same when you run out of bounds to stop the clock and find that the clock didnt stop

    as for GAMEFLOW... ITS JUST "ASK MADDEN" without madden!! how is this a new feature??
    lets hope that they didnt completely strip down superstar mode again and make it suck like last year

    Backbreaker is an AWFUL game. Madden 11 has taken a step back from last year. The gameplay is just bad in this one and the strategy pad is a dumb idea. Madden 10 played much better. Also why do people say that all Maddens are the same when they ALL feel completely different from one another.

    strategy pad is the worst thing in a madden game since the QB vision cone.

    I'm more a casual fan of football....I enjoy watching it and for the most part I know the basics of the game. However, I'm definitely no pro when it comes to knowing everything about it, which is why I enjoyed the demo a lot. To me, the gameplay didn't feel complicated and I love the Gameflow feature. It makes it play better IMO.

    However, I did notice some things that turned me off. For example the game sounds oddly quiet. The audience barely sounds like they're excited and the announcer doesn't always show the correct emotion when something amazing happens. It kinda annoyed me.

    So yeah...I liked the demo. But I wouldn't buy it at 60 bucks. Whenever it goes down in price, I'll consider it. (BTW the last Madden game I ever bought was Madden NFL 08 on the Wii.....I honestly thought it was a great game.)

    i played backbreaker for to long so im used to the non canned tackles and they say that the new game flow is supposed to make the game better but it's just a quciker verson of as a coach mode that not new if i want somebody to pick my play for me in the 10 verson i would just go to pick a play wow nice change huh no and the kicking they that is supposed to be new well it's not if you have played the old madden like back in 2001-2004 you will notice that the kicking is the same thing as that but they just put it sideways so that not really new. oh and even though they say they have a new tackleing engine called the locomotion it's not really like reall tackling it's more like im running to the and i get sucked into a takle by a safty who doesn't even have the momentome to stop me wow not really new guys all madden everwas were just nice graphics mixed in with with crapy commentary. madden used to be oh top it used to have thing that we have never seen before ex they had mini camps they where almost like real football trainning they had the radio annocer who was putting feeling into the game during 06 but they took it out why tell me why would they do that. it's not even madden anymore john was replace by some wanna be you can't replace one of football greast coach's with some pop wanner league person it just doesn't fit if you break down all of madden walls like graphics it's hold on the NFL linces it's prestaion if you break down all of those wall and you just played the game as it was in it's purest from what would you say about it then are you buying the game based on it's way to simulate football could it do that cause im telling you right now if you ever have played real football before you can't hear them commenting on your every move you can't tell cause you can't cause when your on that feld it's just you your brother's and the other team nothing else does all that stuff they say about you matter no should you care when the game is on the line no. so what is madden i tell you what i think it is it's just like a cake with a whole bunch is iceing on it. it looks so good and yummy but when you bit into that cake you will taste it will tast good for a few seconds but then you take that second bit you will then start to taste all of that lack of effort the baker put into it that it's not the same cakes you grew up with that they stopped careing about you the consumer i don't mean custmur i mean consumer cause we eat up this stuff about new gamplay and things that where never new cause they slowly took it away they slowly cut the ingridents down untill we could no longer tell what we where getting now they got comption from 505 games and people are now starting to rember and be like hey everything they told us they did was all a lie EA SPORTS MADDEN WAS NOT THE BEST FOOTBALL GAME OUT THERE THEY WHERE NOT ESPN 2K5 HADD THEM BEAT HADD THEM BEAT OH THINGS THEY JUST GOT NOW THEY HAD THEM BEAT THEY ALL READY HAD THE INDEPHT INTERVIEWS THEY ALL READY HAD THE STATE UP DATES THEY ALL READY HAD MADDEN NFL SUPERSTAR MODE AND THEY DID IT BETTER THEM MATTER FACT THEY WHERE BETTER BUT MADDEN NOTICE THIS AND NEW THEY NEW THAT IF ESPN 2K5 KEEP GOIN THEY WOULD LOSE THE WAR SO THEY DID THE ONLY THING THEY COULD DO THE ONLY THING THEY COULD DO SINCE EA WAS ALREADY A BIG COMPANY AND 2K5 WHERE NOT EA SPORTS BOUGHT THE NFL BOUGHT IT THEY DIDN'T EARN IT THE NEXT YEAR THEY BOUGHT THE NFL THE NFL SOLD OUT TO EA SPORTS EA NOW OWNS THE TEAMS OF THE NFL KNOWING THAT WE WOULD FOLLOW THE TEAMS AND NOT THE GAMEPLAY AND WHEN WE FORGOT ABOUT 2K5 WHAT DID THEY DO THEY MADE SUPERSTAR MODE WOW RIGHT nothing change they still buy out the NFL linces but it's about to run out and it's goin to be a war beetween games if 2k5 combines with natrul motion 505 games EA will loose.

    Yeah the review thing needs to be fixed. Last Madden that I got was 09. I don't plan on getting this because I don't want to support someone who wants to kill the used game market by making us pay for online if we don't buy it new.

    I'm buying it, but I see they still haven't fixed one major flaw. The review system. Still doesn't let you review what you want and if the booth reviews and it says the call was over turned, it wasn't. This is a huge flaw to me and can't believe EA keeps missing this. I did love the gameflow system, looking forward to online play and franchise mode. Btw, I saw the review flaw when I played, not from this video.

    My thoughts: Love the gameflow feature, setting up a game plan and then seeing the "coach" use it is very appealing. Overall calling plays during the game is so much simpler.

    Gus Johnson is a great addition and his call of especially long pass or run plays is great.. too bad he's paired with the very boring and drull Collinsworth.

    The coach telling you about the plays through the headset is ok and kind of a neat touch, but there didn't seem to be much variance in phrases he used.. could get very old quick. Maybe the full version has more coaching speak? I hope... I really don't want to hear 20 times over that the sidlines are left open to the pass or that I gotta hit my guy on the crossing pattern.

    Stadium looks great.. cut scene animations look pretty good as well..

    My girlfriend is already lamenting hearing "Zombie nation" over and over and over again this fall..

    YEAH and when does 2K get the rights back to make a NFL game again?

    I heard EA is being a biich about online play- if you rent it you wont be able to play online!? sounds a lot like they hopped on the pay to play bandwagon. I know its not the end of the world, but its a start...

    This still feels like every madden game I've seen and played year after year with more minor changes that don't justify paying $60. The only change I like this year is the addition of Gus Johnson, Chris Collinsworth still puts me to sleep though with his monotone voice and lack of excitement in his play calling.

    In this demo the jets caught an interception early and Chris just calls it out casually like it was no big deal. I have nothing against him, but as a commentator your job is to make the game exciting and he doesn't do it for me. I know the devs try, but year after year they just don't get it.

    Can't wait for 2k to come back and make football games again so us consumers can benefit from high caliber competition.
