Ken McKown writes: The Madden NFL series has been slowly improving ever since the massive overhaul in 2010. Each year adds some new stuff under the hood, some presentation improvements and, of course, the standard roster update. This year is no different, and while when you first pick up the controller not much will feel out of place, there are a lot of changes under the hood this year that make this a notable update. When you combine that with the massive presentation upgrades, what you get is one of the most solid representations of the sport to date. Sure, there are some minor setbacks, but if you are like me, counting down the days until the season begins; Madden NFL 12 should be on the top of your must-own list.
