Madden reviews are pointless. That includes this one. I'm not entirely sure when that happened -- or why. But I think playing and evaluating Madden NFL 12 this year has helped me shape some theories.
Interesting read and the title of the "review" states how a lot of sports gamers are feeling these days . - How Madden NFL 12 Uses You as a Beta Tester

Thoughts?

Good to see these reviewers tightening up on EA.

I hate to start a new thread for every new review so I'll just stick them in here as I find them.

Joystiq - 3.5 out of 5 or 70 on metacritic

Quote:
Madden 12 does not respond to every fans' frustrations. Every year, the series brings a balance of improvement and ongoing flaws. Considering this year's game as a whole, improvements like the new presentation style and lack of player suction heavily outweigh the more minuscule issues that remain. It's a good kind of frustration for players, the kind where this year's game is definitely better than last year's, which may actually be enough incentive to give it a shot.

GamePro - 3.5 out of 5, or 70 on metacritic

Quote:
PROS: Broadcast angles look great; big improvements to offline franchise; physics get much needed fixes; online communities are a great idea.
CONS: The commentary is terrible; Superstar Mode is inadequate compared to competition; the crowd still looks fake; Dynamic Player Performance seems a bit unbalanced.

Official Xbox Magazine - 8.5/10, 85 on metacritic

Quote:
THE VERDICT

On Xbox 360

8.5

+ Looks really good, plays even better.

+ Play-calling is both smart and streamlined for casuals and diehards alike.

- Slow, annoying menus; stilted commentary.

- Who thought the new Season Ticket program was a good idea?

"You'll love Online Communities" . . . lol I love Online Communities when I can use my much more accurate Dallas Cowboys defensive playbook within them.

Agreed. I anticipated an EA slobber-fest from a lot of these reviewers. Good that they're instead bending EA over a table. Hopefully it hurts sales and prompts the fat cats to get off their cans and get to work, instead of starting a new "three-year plan'' every year.
