This game is a total MESS!!!! The only thing good about the game is the visual aspect. As far as gameplay Madden 2011 SUCKS!!! I would much rather play Madden 2010. E.A you guys should team up with the 2K franchise and then add the new. I'm really a Die-hard Madden fan but NFL 2K-5 is the best football game that I have ever played, hands-down. Hey E.A. if you can't beat them JOIN THEM!!!

It seems that in Madden 12 they still use the strategy pad. The last Madden I played was 10, and one of my favorite features was how easy it was to modify routes/change the defensive scheme. Why did they go to this horrible implementation? It slows everything down, I am going to try to get used to it, but I do not think I will be able to make as many changes at the line of scrimmage.

I madden 12 can I revert back to the way it used to be?
