    Finally picked up a copy today. I was thrilled to see that I had the option to use the 70's throwbacks, so I chose them. Imagine my dismay when I saw the 70's throwbacks with the current style ****** upside down bolts. Who is the retard at EA that f*cked this up?

    And my son scored on a 4th down play, it was reviewed by the booth and overturned. But guess what? When it was overturned it was 1st and goal for him instead of my ball. Argh!

    The new Madden is bad *** IMO.The only thing about the jerseys is i didn't see the new powder blues,just the old school ones. Overall i give the game a 8/10 rating. BTW 1.try the wildcat with LT,I broke a 71 yard run with em against the viks. 2. Change Merriman to LE,English to ROLB/LOLB and Phillips on the other side of course and i promise you PURE DOMINATION :bolt:

    I have it on PS3, but I am hesitant to play anyone else at this point since I suck at it. Hopefully I will improve and venture out into the online world at some point.

    Defenses seem "smarter". In 09, the short routes were always open. In 10, the LB's always seem to drop into the right coverage.

    I've noticed that.

    I also like how they got rid of that mulligan bullshit.

    Oh, it's still there. It just doesn't default to 1 as it did in 09. Once you select your team, hit the R2 button and you'll see the "rewind" option. Hit it again and you'll have options for weather and game time.
