    FUCK YES! No more Chris Collinsworth babbling on about shit he has no clue about! I didn't think they could make the commentary in 12 and worse than 11 but they sure as hell did. I'm glad that annoyance is GONE! Many times I had to turn off the commentary because he'd end up pissing me off with the dumb shit he'd say. Got to the point I turned it off completely.

    Enough about that, though, I'm even happier that they're addressing the passing game in Madden and syncing up the changes between Madden and NCAA. If these changes hadn't been made, I most certainly wouldn't have bothered with this years. 12 was such a disappointment.

    Just another dissapointing 65 dollar title update in my opinion.

    I decided to boycott EA for multiple reasons several years ago and for sound reasons. Every year I play a buddies copy and still leave feeling the same thing- just another piss poor rendition of football once you strip down the bells and whistles.

    If you want a great football game for gameplay, refer back to 2K5. Jesus, EA when will you get it right?

    Looks good, except that Phil Simms looks a little, how you say, fat/short?
    Yup, I am that bored.

    Well... as a through and through Green Bay Packers fan I have this hard and fast rule: I NEVER anything with a Detroit Lion, Minnesota Viking, or Chicago Bear on it (unless it is making fun of one of them). Since I have that rule, I can't buy Madden this year. Too bad. I was looking forward to it. warning But Johnson can not sit in my home on the cover of Madden. warning

    Packer fan here as well. I just see it as Megatron and his team getting their taste of the Madden curse. lol I sure do love putting it on Rookie and just beating the shit out of teams *cough*giants*cough* that put the Packers out of the playoffs.

    There might be a Hall of Fame edition like there was last year, and it could have a different player on the cover.
    How much for the whole kitten kaboodle?

    Shame that Rob Gronkowski didn't get cover athlete as he really wanted it and is funny as hell.
    When life gives you lemons, rinse them for as much gamerscore as possible.

    I can now say I don't like this author. I am a fan of the Patriots and Baseball. Anyway I really like the changes. The commentators are great and I wasn't expecting the Nike changes to go through since there wasn't any evidence in the Screenshots. Many more animations and gameplay changes should make this the best Madden yet. I'm looking forward to the game and the season.
    Patriots and baseball both suck dude. sorry

    I like all these improvements. Especially the commentary (as long as they don't add the CBS pregame with Shannon Sharpe) and the play action. Play action was worthless if somebody blitzed a LB and it only worked every great once in a while. Glad to see them put some focus on that. Now I just hope they improve the online franchise. Last years was fun but it was just a dumb down version of the offline one. Pretty excited for this game.
