You just gotta be creative. Use clash catch most of the time. I mostly played the CPU though.

Yeah the cpu was okish .. The inability to play with my friends was what killed it for me.

Fantasy Draft added.

Wish they'd add player editing.

Thank God, that's one of my favorite parts of the game. Unfortunately, I'm already two seasons into an old Coach Mode, and I'm kicking ass (won Coach of the Year, D-Lo broke the all time rushing record). But after I get bored with this squad, I'm gonna have some fun with the fantasy drafting.

Just bought the game today after seeing that they patched some stuff and added a fantasy draft. I don't do that, but it's nice to see they listen. The one thing that was keeping me from getting it was lack of editing. But I figured it might be nice to play the game as it should be played, instead of with the Super Teams I usually make.

After playing it for a few weeks (when I could play it), my observations

Passing game is more fluid, but running the ball is hell. The oline does not want to block or hold their blocks. RB's feel clunky when controlling them.

I can get plenty of sacks on D but the secondary blows because of the revamped passing game.

The AI is stupid (missing blocks, running a route short, getting pushed back 5 yards, etc)

I like and hate connected careers mode at the same time. I like the XP part and the revolving news headlines (that are recycled too frequently for my tastes). I hate just about everything else. The menus need to be revamped, as well as easier to access news and data (such as checking the results of the last game without having to go into 5 menus, stats, etc...)

Commentary is good....for the first year of franchise only. It's a mess afterwards (mainly in the arena of introducing players and talking about teams). For example, Josh Freeman was signed by the Falcons, and the announcers still announced him as leading the Bucs attack. In the same breath seemingly, they mentioned the Falcons offense with matt Ryan leading the attack for 2012 and it was 2015 in the game.....really????

I hate the practice mode. I want to be able to do plain practice in franchise (CC) mode.

I'd give it a 5/10. This is the first madden I've played since I had my PS2. I only do careers mode and I hate how they gutted it out.

I wish they'd focus on the career mode. It needs more RPG elements - that's the only way I'm buying Madden again.

I only play online so all the extra franchise / connected career stuff I ignore.

The bottom line is that the game play is solid. And you have to play the game the way its supposed to be played. Trying to utilize a team just like they are in the NFL is sometimes difficult. This is a video game, not a super realistic simulator. Play it as such.

Took it back yesterday to trade it in, and they wouldn't take it, because it's so bad.

Well actually my license was cracked so they wouldn't take it. :huh:
