I hate Madden reviews because they're all over the place. More than once, I've been burned by glowing reviews of a Madden game that turns out to be a stinking mess. A couple months after it's out, the consensus will be that some shit's broken but none of that stuff will show up in the initial reviews. It's like reviewers are looking at different games.
In the GT review, none of the issues mentioned by the guys at the Blog for the Sports Gamer
are mentioned. What's up with that?
Other views note a buttload of problems with the game; inconsistent AI, stuck animations, bad commentary, and features that haven't been improved since last year. Then, at the end they'll say "best Madden yet" and give it an 8 or 9. It's crazy.
