Madden 2011 is finally here!

She was the very first person to receive her
copy because she was the first person in line
LUCKY!!!!

OK,  so I am just getting home from my local video game store from picking up my copy of Madden 2011 at 12am. I haven’t cracked open my game just yet because I wanted to write this post. I did however manage to get a little game time in at the store for one half and I can honestly say that I think I am going to be comfortable with the changes that have been made to the game. There are a few things I have to get used to. For instance there is no turbo button on the default settings. I didn’t realize this until after a couple of plays but before you know if you will completely forget all about the missing turbo. But all in all the game play looks fantastic. This year’s Madden is most definitely geared towards the mainstream football fan by being less complex so to some this will be a welcomed change but to some of the hardcore Madden fans there may be a few complaints. But I don’t think the bad outweigh the good here. So enjoy the game everybody. Looking forward to seeing you online. Continue reading
