As far as the game itself is concerned, I have to say I like it. It feels more natural than previous installments.
I haven't had the issues some are complaining about with speed. I keep the auto-sprint on but turn off auto-strafe. I generally average anywhere from 3.5-6 YPC with Charles so no need to change it.
The two complaints I have so far are the GameFace and All-Madden. I uploaded my GameFace and it shows that I have it, but when I go to create a coach or player it's just the generic created guy. My GameFace shows up when I'm checking stats and things (the pic at the top), but on the field it's the other guy. Not a huge issue but kind of annoying.
All-Madden is by far the most annoying shit ever. I played my first 3 games on it and about threw my ****ing remote 19 different times. It's not so much harder than it is cheap as hell and it's ****ing infuriating. I had Charles drop 2 legitimate, wide open TD passes in 7 point games. Stevan Ridley (who the **** is that guy?) broke 3 different tackles on the first play of my second game for an 80 yard TD. It's just bullshit. If they made the game tougher all around I could understand, but that kind of shit is unacceptable. It was so obviously just cheap bullshit that I couldn't help lowering the skill rating to All-Pro.
And another thing, I've been playing 5 minute quarters with accelerated game clock. I'm not getting quite realistic game stats so how long of quarters would you guys recommend and should I keep the accelerate clock running?
