26 posts in this topic

Couldn't find a thread for this although the search feature on this board is horrid at best. Anyone stoked for this year's release? I am excited about the new Connected Career

http://www.easports.com/madden-nfl/feature/connected-careers

Allows you to play your career mode with other friends. For example I could put myself as a QB for the Raiders(which i will) and compete against my buddy who just wants to Coach Green Bay. I think this will redefine career modes for all sports games including hockey. If i knew how to post pics I would but check out the website to see all the new changes, looks to be dope.

Lost touch with madden after last years terrible game. I'll probably stick to watching football. I still enjoy madden on the ps2, where I can roll teams and still have fun.

That's too bad, I thought last years was the best installment to date. Gang tackles, sideline catches, fluid Franchise mode, best menu systems in all of sports plus a decent soundtrack made it one of my favs. The new career mode this year will be enough for me to justify this purchase.

Bought Madden 12, will never buy another Madden game again.

The games have actually gotten worse since Madden 06.

Madden 12 was a great game. Like the OP said, the sideline catches and gang tackles were a great addition.

No there's not huge steps forward every year but thats the deal with ALL sports games made by any developer, adding new features like the Online Franchise with Madden this year is pretty innovative and should be alot of fun.

If your fine playing a crappy looking 8yr old game, with loose controls and alot less depth on gameplay thats fine. But there's alot of people who love the slight tweaks and updates every year. Its a great way to get jacked for the upcoming season.

EA NEEDS COMPETITION!!!!!!!!!!!!

That being said, both NHL and Madden have added a solid online mode and improved others...maybe the 13's will be a success.

I've played it. It's actually pretty good. When your a quarterback you get too many interceptions, but maybe I'm just bad at it. I'm really just waiting for NHL13 but it's worth the buy.

So far I find there's too many dropped passes in the game. So often my receiver will be wide open and he'll drop the pass.

Didn't bother with Madden 12 at all.

Bought Madden 13 and it's really fun, I'm playing career as the Seahawks and so far I am undeafeated in the season.

My receivers don't drop passes, they just sometimes suck on the route running. Haven't had many problems at QB only threw 1 INT, only knock is my offensive line sucks and doesn't protect me as well.

Loving this game esp. career connected mode. This will truely redefine career modes for all sports game and can't wait until NHL series implements this as well. Having certain prospects with thier own backstory is so epic, it makes the draft so much more entertaining.

Check the career connected manual to get a idea of all the teams schemes and needs.

I made a strong arm QB for the Raiders. Can't teach speed and the Raiders have a ton of it. Jacoby Ford(98) and DBH(97) gotta be the fastest tandem in this game. Started 85 overall just high enough to start over Palmer. Played/simmed a year and got 50k xp, bought the developement pack although not sure if its worth it.

Won the Super Bowl with the Seahawks!!

Undeafeated season! Loved the tweets from Skip Bayless (in his face!), Connected Careers is pretty awesome.
