It appears EA has started to listen to the scrutiny coming from its audience. The kicking game has returned to the button system (goodbye joysticks!) and each team has customizable traits -- I personally like the Vikings horn that goes off in Minnesota. That said, Madden 11 comes up short in some areas. The game desperately needs a more coherent (read: automatic) system for saving and loading, especially for routine roster updates. And how many more times can a player run through referees, walls, or goal posts?
