I’ll be the first to admit, I did not enjoy Madden 11. None of the issues were addressed from previous entries on the current gen systems. Features that fans have been asking for weren’t even brought up. I played it a few times at a friend’s house and decided against buying it. It was the first time since the N64 that I didn’t buy that year’s Madden.
Suffice to say, I didn’t go into this year’s entry with high expectations. I heard what EA Sports had planned for Madden 12 and the features that they said were being implemented. I was like, “sounds great, but I’ll believe it when I see it.” That’s me—the Madden skeptic.
So you can understand how surprised I was when I popped in Madden 12 and proceeded to get my mind blown. Every issue I’ve had with the series has been addressed, and I’m a happy gamer because of it.
