Ripten: "I went to play some more of my Madden 2010 franchise this morning after not having played it since prior to writing the review up a few weeks ago. The PS3 flashes a notice that the game requires a 182 mb update, so I hit accept and start to watch the bar fill up. About a third of the way through, I grabbed my laptop to browse the web for some info on the update contents.
While reading up I saw a forum thread about the update listing gameplay related fixes (which sounded good), but it also featured a few comments stating that it added more in-game ads (which sounded bad). Unfortunately, before I could stop the download to read up some more, it had already completed. I pressed start thinking to myself … "how bad could it be?"
How bad could it be? How bad? It's pull the hair from your head bad. It's toss the game out your window bad. It's "I'd rather have a buffalo take a diarrhea dump in my ear" bad. "
