Probably the best sports game i have ever played!!!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Madden NFL 11 (PS3) (Video Game)
Let me start by saying... i know nothing about American Football. Nothing.
I have played many sports games in the past on multiple games consoles and grew tired of the same sports. I wanted to try something different and came across EA's: Madden NFL 11. After a speedy delivery i immediately put it into my Playstation 3 and started playing. Within 10 minutes i thought to myself... what the hell have i got to do? I knew none of the rules, none of the plays.
But i persisted with Madden 11, and after about an hour it all just seem to click. It is undoubtedly one of the greatest games of all time and i haven't been able to put it down since playing it. Im still learning alot of the rules and controls and enjoy learning the many plays the game offers. Online is fantastic, the graphics are untouchable and the presentation is as if your actually there. Gameflow is a neat addition for beginners (such as myself), but i found myself using it less and less (as i grew more confident) until eventually i turned the option to use it completely off in the settings screen. I particuarly love the, somewhat gimmicky, addition of the coach speaking to me through my bluetooth headset and that the weather is indigenous to the state that your playing the ball game in.
Overall, i think that Madden 11 is a bloody brilliant game and can't recommend it enough. It offers so much more depth and diversity compared to some of the other big names out there (Fifa, Tiger Woods, etc), and is the most fun iv'e had from a sports game in a very long time. Im now going to explore more American sports games and have just ordered MLB 10: The Show. If your looking for something different, challenging, fun and immersive... Do yourself a favour... get this game!!!
