    It sure does,but I'm going to grind it out whenever I play it.

    Lots of grinding in this installment of Madden. But I do like the fact that they switched it up.

    Wow, just wow...they added a Kinect achv, decided to include that same damn "this one is easy" BS that glitched on everyone last year AND 12 online achvs (10 of which ar from head to head ranked games). This one is going to make some people mad...especially if you don't get it before the servers go down!!

    Not too sure about this one at launch, now, as I hate UT and their servers hate my internet connection (hence no UT from FIFA or NHL last year), and not a big fan of Madden ranked matches due to all the quitters. I guess I'll see how it runs on the 24th with early access and decide then.

    Might not be TOO bad if the "score" achvs for ranked matches relate to game score (TD/FG) and not some made up earned xp points...most of the player/ coach stuff an probably be sim'd if NCAA is any indicator.
    Killer Punks...all that needs to be said.

    I was undecided on this game this year. Acheivement list decided it for me - no thanks! Sleeping Dogs and Borderlands 2 will keep me occupied.

    laugh my thoughts exactly... I love football but, dang, these games are nearly the exact same every year; just one or two special new features and a new dude slapped on the cover.

    But I digress! If anyone can overcome the curse, its Megatron! But if he falls victim, it will be because of an injury and not perfomance. You heard it here first!!

    Given the fact you have multiple Call of Duty titles as well as Assassins Creed games in your trophy case...you can't really bash a game for being incredibly similar every year. laugh

    This one is looking pretty good, though I can't deny it is more of the same. Bringing social networks and things of that nature in to the superstar stuff is kinda funny, talk about depth. Glad to see the achievements are a bit tougher as well, maybe now it will be worth holding on to for more than just a week.

    New engine, new career, new announcers and harder achievements not enough for you idiots to quit posting this kind of thing.

    OT: Game is looking good and I'm excited for all the achievements. For once Madden might have a higher ratio which is good for me and my team in GSP.

    I'll give you Call of Duty, but Assassins Creed--as of late--haven't really been THAT similar. The story in Assassins Creed is what takes it out of the "copy & paste" grouping, IMO.

    The gameplay is for the most part. The story is the only reason it really stands out. Don't get me wrong, I'm not knocking either of them just saying the gameplay is rather similar each and every release. Hell I admit many franchises I like are the same way.
