Gotta say this is the best glitch in a video game I've seen.

Oh man the 'lil guy gets creamed by his own player after being hurdled.  So if I'm understanding the story right, someone made a typo in the code listing his height at 1'2 instead of 6'2?  At least the player has a good sense of humor about it.

Wow that is a truly awesome glitch.

This signature is not personal, at all.  If you're not awake enough to realize our country is being taken down by an organized effort from a puppet chimp being controlled by a movement older than me.  Wake the freaking fack up.

Honest question: game any good? I thought we had some enthusiasts here, but I've heard nothing about it.

I would normally pick up Madden, but with my lack of my next gen console purchase and EA's lack of releasing it for the PC, I have nothing.

The game is fun.  Presentation is pretty good except for the announcers.  But if feels like watching a tv broadcast with the overlays and such.

There are alot of modes to play in.  I tried to doing connected franchise online, but realized I'm going to have a hard time matching people's schedules so I stuck to offline franchise.  Ultimate Madden is fun.  It's like magic the gathering meets fantasy football.  You collect player cards through either real world money, or by playing the game.  I refuse to spend more $$$ so I stick with just playing.  I haven't played much, but so far it's fun because they're like mini-games.  If I don't have a block of time, I can play that.

I think the coolest feature and I'm sure it's not new, but it's new to me, is that you can actually download sliders/rosters and have it applied without having to manually set them up like in the old days. 

I played a few online games and it's smooth.  Probably my best experience in an online sports game.  But still can't get rid of people cheesing.

So I ended up caving and getting this last week. I'm enjoying it a lot more than any football game I've had since whatever edition of NCAA Football I had in college, but I'm not a big football gamer, so take that with a grain of salt.

Presentation is outstanding, and I like the new playcall menu (at least in Enhanced mode). I tend to accidentally pick plays a bunch hammering A to get through cutscenes, which does lead to a few more burned timeouts than I'd like.

Pro difficulty is a little too easy, even playing as the woeful Washington Football Club, but at least it's too easy in entertaining ways - I haven't found any 'money' plays, with different teams tending to shut down different parts of my gameplan or even particular receivers/routes, though typically if I get a lead early, and hit a few passes on the way, the run game really opens up and lets me choke most games down at the end. I think I'll step it up and see how it goes for my next season.

I've played pretty much entirely the offline franchise mode at this point - does the Madden Ultimate Team do the same 'contracts' thing as NHL and FIFA (where you have to manage how many contract-games all your players have)? I don't really want to manage that for a full NFL roster, so I'd be a lot more likely to play with it if I just were able to pick players from packs and go.

All in all - I'm pretty pleased with this, certainly more pleased than the last few Maddens I've gotten, and since I'm not buying the stripped-down version of NHL they're putting out this year, it scratches the sports-game itch (and it might have to, if FIFA also ends up not being worth buying).
