I don't care about the NFL, but I'm glad Giant Bomb is doing this Quick Look.

Sports?

Wait. Does this mean that if I have two profiles on my Xbox only one can use the Online Pass code? Oh shit, that sucks.

Madden 11 is a really solid game. I like the improvements in the offensive gameplan. Also, running is worthwhile for once!

whats with all the Magic hate?

I have to say that Madden 11 has to be one of the biggest improvements to the franchise possible.  It's not just the same ol' same ol'. 
 
Don't get me wrong.  There are people that are going to bitch about some of the stuff in the game, but over the last three years, Madden has really been building itself into a better game.  Madden 11 feels like the culmination of those efforts. 
 
I also like that they are keeping people informed about pre-order bonuses for EA games, what the latest news is with EA games, etc. 
 
Above that, while some might find things like paying MS points for some Scouting Reports on other players to be a stupid idea, the fact is that the type of people that are playing Madden hardcore...would be into something like that.  It's a damn fine idea.  Hell, people playing WoW are paying $15 a month.  Those who play on Xbox 360 will spend money here and there for gamerpics, themes, and other little tidbits. 
 
For those who play Madden hardcore, this is their hobby.  It's the same as someone who shoots guns, flies kites, races cars, etc.  Therefore, the idea of Ultimate Team cards, Scouting Reports, all kinds of stuff like that...is perfectly viable and one of the most intelligent additions that they've made to Madden 11.  It adds far more depth to that game than there was for a long time.

Haha, I got that Ryan Shamrock reference.

Madden is a game for old people.

@jakob187: I think a lot of people, like myself, enjoy Madden and other sports games along with the traditional games others play. Just like an RTS, there are several strategies that you can use online when playing. It's an extension of the NFL, the most popular league in the US.  
 
I seriously do not understand the hate of this game and the people who play it.

Love all the comments from people who don't like sports shitting on this game. If you don't like like it, why watch?

Madden Ultimate Team was in 2010............. 
A new "running system" has been in the past 3 games......... 
I am not sure how you can say this is the biggest improvement to the franchise. I was looking at this as the least improved Madden game I have ever seen as well as the first one I am not going to buy.

This is the first year of the last 6 that I won't buy Madden on release day.  Franchise and Superstar modes are unchanged from last year and they were both AWFUL.

Posted by JackSukeru

I wonder who got the team name Team Name.

In game coins? ugh...

Thank you. I am so sick of EA Sports putting this shit on the market and people defending it. I honestly would like to see what this dev team does all year.

I don't get this "American Football". Where's my FIFA 11 QL and my Football Manager QL! And I wanted MNC for this week's TNT. 
 
The whole world's gone mad.

Posted by DBoy

You guys should do an NHL 11 QL when it comes out. At least that franchise improves from year to year, unlike Madden.

Posted by Gearhead

I'm going to go away from the internet and say this is cool.

Posted by ZagZagovich

I have no idea about what's going on but I don't like it at all.

Posted by MKSKILLZ16

This makes me want to go back and play Madden 07.

Posted by skrutop

God, they make some great products, but on the marketing side EA Sports sucks so much ass.

Posted by KuribosShoe

I was all about the Bucs in Blitz too.  Which is terrible as a Panthers fan, but there you go.

Edited by MeatSim

Madden's even dirtier it looks like.

every Mike Alstott reference was halarious.

RAGE QUIT!!!!!

Posted by Sarnecki

Bad ass soundtrack for this game.

Posted by Luccaface

I doubt many non-Steelers fans know who he is, but Stefan Logan playing RB is just silly.  He's 5'6" and like 175lbs.  In reality he's just a return specialist and on rare occasions a receiver.

Posted by KinjiroSSD

I love bush.....if you check my drift. 

Posted by oddjob

I like the football and I like playing the football vidjagames, but Madden always irks me the wrong way. I tried the demo, it was OK, so I'll just rent this.
 
Thanks Alex and Jeff.

Edited by buckybit
Hehe, Evil Jeff commands Alex to 'review' games he doesn't care about. Good old times. Full circle. :)
