    Yeah I agree, the game is overall too quiet. I just finished my first year in dynasty and I simmed through all the recruiting in the offseason... it took about 20-30 minutes. They need to find a way to make the menus and what not run smoother on this game IMO.

    Are they going to make an update to get all the Pro Combat jerseys? They have the white one for UM but not the orange from last year

    You have to have preordered or played the demo to get them.

    Yeah, just go to either the playstation store or whatever the xbox store is and download it. It takes a while so I'd do it when you plan on being out for an hour or two.

    I'm pretty sure I just played the most dramatic XBOX football game of my entire life.

    Dynasty mode, 2012 season. So I'm ranked #2 and I'm @Arkansas and my offense hasn't done **** all day. Been down 7-0 all game. Finally Jeff Driskel nails Jordan Reed in the back of the end zone with less that 2 minutes left to tie it up. Couple sacks and a punt later I have the ball again on the Arkansas 45 with 0:04 left. Hail Mary. Caught. Andre Debose. Touchdown. Game. 13-7.

    I don't know what it is, but I just can't bring myself to play this game much. I havn't played it in 3 days and I just have no desire to, which is unusual for me. I think this game is very underwhelming compared to what I and many other had expected based on all the hype surrounding all the new features. It's not really a bad game, it's just very average and it still has a lot of problems that make me not want to play.

    I think Madden 12 will blow NCAA out of the water this year. Madden 11 might be the worst sports game I've ever played, but NCAA 11 was probably the best. Maybe that trend will reverse itself.

    Everything. I could go on and on but here are just a few things.

    last year, Madden was just too dumbed down. Gameflow was a terrible idea and ultimate team is stupid IMO. There was now real improvements to the actual game play, and it was really just too easy to the point that it was boring. I want it to be tough to make the playoffs in franchise mode. I want it to be difficult to keep all of your free agents. I want to have to negotiate deals with players. I want players to sometimes misbehave off field, earning suspensions, fines, or whatever seems fit in my eyes. Madden just lacks the depth that I want. Also, the NFL Draft shouldn't be so easy. It is waaaayyyyy to easy to find a good prospect anywhere you pick, in any round. I will end my rant after 1 more point... the OC, DC, and ST coaches should actually matter. They should influence the way that unit plays, and depending on how good of a coach they are, player should excel or regress.

    One more thing before I quit bitching about this... It should be like NCAA dynasty mode where you are the coach and can leave your team at any time, or likewise, be fired after being a disappointment and not meeting expectations. Furthermore, attendance levels should drop when you aren't winning, just as they should rise if you are.

    Sorry to continue the rant, but furthermore, defense needs to matter again. I found in Madden 11 that defense was simply atrocious. Offensively, I could do whatever I wanted. Defensively however, it was a different story. Sometimes it doesn't matter what you do, offense will prevail. Defense needs to be the focus. Good defense should be able to win games. I'm tired of seeing 49-45 games every time I play. What happened to 14-10, 17-13, 24-17, etc?

    This is from one of my posts earlier in the thread on page 1. This basically sums up my hatred for madden 11.
