I will say though that a lot of people who say the game sucks every year say that because they actually suck at playing it. In my opinion madden is not supposed to be a game you should just be able to pick up and play and expect to be good. It is a game of strategy and when you start playing high ranked games it much a lot like a chess match if the guy you are playing is legit and not a cheating POS.
They say the game sucks because it's nothing like you see in the NFL on Sundays, that's why. Broken zone coverage for how many years? Also how do you like the living sideline they made such a big deal out of with the fake players lol.
Want to play a sports game that feels like a real representation? Try MLB The Show. Light years ahead of Madden in every facet.
