    I have 2nd pick in a 16 man draft. I'm thinking Peterson or Rodgers :holmes:

    Of course if a take a QB by the time I get to pick a RB they will all be gone. Hmmm.

    It feels faster... And breaking tackles / Getting tackled looks, and feels more realistic.

    Superstar mode is better than 11, but not great: I've been playing as Ingram for an hour or so, and theres not much more to it than completing a practice and then taking your snaps in the game and doing as much as possible with them.

    Havn't given Franchise Mode a proper go yet, but from what I read about it the improvements seem pretty decent.

    Oh, Defensive Linemen are now realistically good - so a beast like Suh can get right around most offensive linemen unless double teamed, what this means in practice is that you do have to be more pocket aware when you're throwing.

    It needs a good slider-set to make it better, like every madden, but it's an improvement on 11, and the new visuals - Aerial views, Team Entrances etc are pretty nice!

    Madden 12 is siiiick!

    Tackling's infintely better, I'm finding it harder to complete passes with A-Rod (so no more unrealistic 20-yard gains every play) and Franchise Mode has not only improved visually but all the tweaks/improvements are excellent. Playing as the Pack (ofc) and got the 2 Matthews brothers at LOLB (both A potential)

    Was going to play the sky sports fantasy NFL but it looks like they might not be doing it this year.

    At least we wont be nagged to death to play it and hear every 10 minutes how the 'celebrities' scored constantly throughout coverage. Fingers crossed anyway. They might do the NFL.com one and tell us. Great :rolleyes:

    Does anyone here play the Madden game on facebook? It's strangely addictive...

    Also, very excited for the new season - although I'm a bit annoyed that Sky aren't showing Bucs-Lions. I think that'll be an awesome game.

    So I can't average 500 yards, 3 interceptions and 5 TDs a game with Nate Davis at QB on All-Madden? Booooooooooooooo

    Sky+ is a wonderful thing. Wish I had ESPN though but it's massively overpriced.
