Just finished the demo and surprisingly the game didnt disappoint. Still most likely wont buy it but it did get better. I just skunked the bears 19-0 (missed both xps). n*ggas still feel like they skatin on ice. When I first started on defense, i was runnin outta bounds because the players run way too fast, so I recommend turning the game speed to very slow and it felt much more authentic.

I'll say this again like I did back last year. When the game drops

Turn auto-strafe and auto-turbo off...Real men do sh*t themselves, kids let the CPU do it for them. The game feels totally different when you do this...animations, jukes, tackles, catching, interceptions u name it.

n*ggas let the CPU do all that for em then bad mouth the game. If you did everything ya self you'd kno you could turn a 5 yard slant into 85 yard TD simply cuz the CPU is not controlling your movments or your animations.

Yeah, I wish it had commentary but man as fun as this game is to play you don't really notice it. The defense is alive and I love that sh*t. The tackling is very real and its going to be hard to complain about Madden at the moment. I saw a couple things here and there during the demo but I'm sure those are bugs that just need to be sorted out.

I'm a little hype to see what the official game looks like though.

aight I just played a few games and observed the game closely.. the Cons still outweigh the pros IMO..

So here's my review

Pros
- The game is the best it's been for awhile
- Defense seems much tougher but it's still slacking due to animation issues (see cons), I got sacked trying to sit in the pocket too long.
- The running animations are a bit better than they have been.
- Tackling is the best it's been but still not up to par (see cons)
- Graphics and presentation is pretty good.


Cons
- Players are still sliding around
- Defensive players are still unable to grab you while being blocked,instead it feels like you're being sucked into a tackling animation
- Tackle takedowns are too quick, it should be possible for the ball handler to stay on his feet until the whistle blows just like in real life. Tackles are quick and to the point and it just doesn't feel real.
- Animations are limited in jumpball situations.



This is obviously a demo but I don't see any of the cons being fixed. I still don't think Madden is up to par for a 2011 release. Especially with games like 2k11 and MLB The Show out there.

They need to add more signature styles to the players and gameplay.

Players should have their own styles and animations.

Mike Vick should run like Mike Vick. Peterson should have that wreckless head bob run he does.

This adds variety,realism, and replay value to the game

I'll buy it because it's the only thing out but it still feels outdated and will more than likely be boring in a few weeks.

Over on Operation Sports they said this build is from Middle of June so it's not final...
I worked on Madden 12 and played this demo yesterday. This build is definitely old.

Ok I played 2 games last night and here are my toughts...

Keep in mind that i dont play Madden like a mad man, I play sports games in general....

The game felt good, the running is pretty cool, you can actually run by people and slip takles (And im horrible at the running game)

Passing seems good but face buttons representing the players you pass to seems unreal to me, why cant you just pass directionally, like thow to an aria that you know your player will cut too...

One thing I always noticed with football game is defenders dropping balls, I thew multiple bad passes as again, im not a "good" Madden player and the defenders knock balls down even wen it hits them in the numbers, I feel like this happens way too often...

One thing I also hate is the replay system, after a play is blown dead, I should be able to replay the hole play, not the last 5 seconds... Case and point, Im on my 20, I call a sweep, I break a tackle and i get loose, I run loose for 55 yards but, wen I replay, I cant even see how I broke the tacle, it dont even go that far back smh!

And finally

I never understood why sports games had comentary, wen you play the game, atheletes dont ear comentary so why would you, you aint watching the game, you playing it...

I play NHL 11, NBA 2k11, MLB the Show with no comentary

These dudes will never realize how bad Madden is to another game comes and blows them out of the water...

Madden is the equivalent to NBA Live/Elite
