Madden 13: Boom Or Bust?

Chad Johnson’s Twitter Account

Yes that’s a pic below from Chad Johnson’s actual twitter account (@ochocinco). It turns out that he is in the game as free agent under the name of Ochocinco. So Chad, you don’t have to re-create yourself after all. Well, at least not in the game that is.

So about the new Madden videogame, if you read the game review websites, you’d think, “Ermagerd, Madden is INCREDIBLE! I must guy buy this NOW!”, but look a little deeper and you’ll find some major issues. A quick visit to Amazon reveals scathingly negative reviews, mainly focusing on the fact that EA Sports has removed editing and fantasy draft from the game.

As a roster editor myself, I can understand the fuss. I spent four months of my life editing Madden 12 rosters to include over 1000 of the greatest players of all time last year. I’m actually glad I don’t have to go through that again, but many are angry about not being able to edit the game to their liking.

But this is old news. It was reported months ago how editing capability was taken out of the game, but people still feel the need to vent.

So which is it, good or bad? More than likely, it’s somewhere in between. I’ve had many issues with Madden in the past, but it has improved, though it’s still behind NFL 2k5 in halftime and postgame shows. Amazing that they still haven’t gotten that handled. I don’t have the 2013 edition and not sure if I even have time to get and play it, but the gameplay probably has improved. Opinions are like assholes. Everyone has one, so there’s really only one way to be sure, and that’s to try it yourself.

May be worth a rental to find out. Let us know what you think. Meanwhile, it’s good that Chad is playing Madden. At least we know where he is.
