    I love Madden, always have. There is always little problems that bug me, but eventually I just get use to it. Since it's the only football game, there is no reason to hate it and get mad. Just come in with an open mind and deal with it. Here's what bugs me this year:

    #1 - The commentary. So many players are known as #__. For example, I have not heard Jake Lockers name said yet? They only say #10.. that's stupid. Madden should have nearly every players name on it. Just a little thing, but really takes away from the authenticity.

    #2 - The speed of DL. DL are WAY to fast, I get like 10 sacks a game. I had to reallllly tune down the pass rush. I also get caught from behind with CJ by a DL ocassionally? That almost never happens in real life.

    #3 - LBs are super amazing. They can jump like 305812395 feet in the air and swat down a passed ball. They also catch RBs so easily as well. LBs just need to be tuned down everywhere. Way to athletic all around.

    #4 - The Ratings. There are way to many 90+ players. I wish they would really tune down players. 90+ should be elite, 80+ good player, 70+ starter, 60+ good bench player, 50+ bench player, 40+ deep bench player. This would really make the elite more elite.

    #5 - Superstar mode. The #1 thing that bugs me is how you are automatically a starter. I'm a 68 overall S, and instantly started over Adrian Wilson on the Cardinals? I wish you had to work your way up on the depth chart.

    Those are the 5 things that I really hate, if those were patched I would think the game was PERFECT. I still give the game a 8/10.

    Gotta adjust the threshold so the guys play to their strengths, otherwise LB's with 75 speed can catch a 99 speed RB.

    They're not dead on, but pretty close.

    Tommie Campbell & Tim Shaw aren't even on the team.
    Jason Jones is still listed as a DT.
    Winborn is on the roster?

    However, Donny Moore (the rating guy) always does a HUGE update once teams get down to their 53 man rosters. So I'm sure he'll get the rosters perfect next week.

    As for the actually ratings:
    -Damian Williams is way to low. He's a 67 overall, and the 6th best WR on the team. He should be more of a 71 overall, and the 4th best WR (right now).
    -Jamie Harper. He's a 4th round pick, and only a 62 overall. However, Stafon Johnson and undrafted pick, whos never played a regular season game, is a 63 overall. Harper should be a couple of points higher.
    -Hope is an 87? HAHA! Should be like a 75.
    -Jason McCourty is only an 89 speed, but is waay faster than that. Should be like a 94 speed-ish.

    No BIG mistakes, but would like to see the things above updated

    That's lame that we have to pay for XBOX Live just to have a decent gaming experience. Is $60 not enough? Games only worth maybe $9.99. Why the hell can't they get the rosters right? EVER? EA sucks balls!! And they left Vince and Kerry on our team.

    The physical copyies have pre-lockout rosters. The game was finished before the lockout was lifted and transactions started to happen. If you have Live/PSN update your roster and it'll fix 90% of it.

    nickmsmith Most poverty RB core.

    If you're not going to get online, you should sell your online pass, you could get a few bucks out of it.

    But anyway, maybe you have a friend who has Live and go over to his house and download the roster from his account.

    I have Live, but it just pisses me off that they jacked the price up from $50 to $60 THEN make you have to have a paid online account just to have an authentic game. Fcuking lame. I'd like to see Bill Gates, and the EA staff in a dark alley one night. I'll fix Madden for us.

    If you can not get on Xbox Live, you might as well keep Madden 11. Rosters are exactly the same. They simply tweaked the depth charts and added rookies.

    The lockout butchered the default roster.

    EA also needs to learn how to just patch new rosters in the updates like everything else. I hate setting up a match with someone who actually wants to play, only to back out when I have the new rosters.

    I have the game but I don't have the online code.

    If someone does not want it plz pm it to me.:D
