    yea now that i actually stopped and looked at this upcoming madden...i may retract decision to buy, it looks bad on the ps3 honestly...last madden i bought was 2010 but the running game killed madden for me...arcadish break tackle system and speed backs were even worse...

    Seemed honest up until the end. Say it's one of the buggiest and hardest to ever recommend, give it a 7.9 in gameplay, but then give it an 8.5 overall? A little higher then I thought they'd give it after watching the review.

    Looks like a pass again. I thought the completely revamped franchise mode after bringing in the NFL Head Coach team?

    I've been playing the game for a week now and the only bug I have noticed is sound inconstancies. Nothing major like NCAA. I even played through an entire season of online franchise and ran a draft and it worked well.

    Wow - are the graphics as bad on the PS3 as the example they used there? I thought I was seeing some old Sega Genesis there for a second....

    I played 1 game so far. Love it. Only problem I had is trying to find how long to set quarter length to for realistic stats. 8 Mins didn't do it. But so far its been near flawless game play. Love the preseason cuts.

    Are you using the accelerated clock? I am playing a franchise with 8 minute quarters and a 10-second runoff.

    6 mins no accel clock or 8-10 mins 20 accel clock seems to be good for me

    Graphics, presentation and polish are much better than NCAA. Really looks "HD"

    Fair enough - I wasn't meaning to impugn Madden or the PS3. I was just going off what was in that video review when they talked about a graphics difference between Xbox and PS3. I really couldn't care one way or the other, since I'm not likely getting Madden anyhow.

    Same here, its inherited globally from your default My Madden settings. It is a bit confusing since you would think the same holds true for other settings (difficulty, speed, quarter length, etc...) which are all set specifically from within your franchise.

    I watched a couple of David 's videos and the graphics didn't look good to me at all.

    1. Graphics have absolutely nothing to do with whether or not I buy a sports game.
    2. I don't own a PS3.

    I haven't played NCAA on PS3 (obviously) but Dru50 's question wasn't an NCAA vs. Madden comparison, but a PS3 vs. 360 comparison. In the review in the OP, there's a huge difference between the PS3 graphics and the 360 graphics (but I don't know why that would be). In the 2 miniclips they showed in the review, the PS3 one looked like crap compared to the 360 clip. All I'm saying is that in your video captures, the graphics don't look good to me* (which I wouldn't care about) but I haven't seen any videos of the 360 Madden to compare it with.

    *Obviously, this is all that matters because if they look good to you, it doesn't matter what I think.

    Yeah me neither, that makes no sense.

    I think it's rigged!

    Madden has always had the upper hand in the graphics department if you ask me.
