  • Madden 13 question before I buy it

    I heard they completely killed franchise mode. Then I read they updated a patch so you could finaly fantasy draft but its in a seperate mode. Then I read you can only fantasy draft with online players and in order to do a similar offline fantasy draft you must do connected careers as one player. Now could I make 2 teams, one for me and my friend that plan to do a fantasy draft against one another but from the same console?

      Franchise is now connected career. You can play offline or online but either way its one person per console. They did patch in fantasy draft but I believe it has to be online only but not 100% sure on that. You both can be in the same league i believe but need your own console and game to do the fantasy draft

        So he can't just sit here and we both do a fantasy draft of our teams. Literally has to be on a completely different console to not only draft with me but also play games against me? If that's the case it is bunk

          Yeah that was probably one of the biggest screw ups they made on this game by short changing people who did co-op on the same consoles.

            Don't even waste your money. I think connected careers was the dumbest idea in a sport game. I bout it and took it back for a refund the same day. Not having an actually franchise mode and superstar mode, makes the game completely pointless for me.

            Maybe other people like connected careers, but I just think it's dumb.

              I never understood this logic. It isn't called franchise mode or superstar mode so I don't like it, but it is there just not called the same thing lol. The fact that they combined the three game modes was actually very smart, because now instead of wasting time programming three seperate modes they can do it to 1 and have it work for all three saving a lot of time to dedicate to improving the game.

                I didn't say I don't like because it's not called franchise mode. I said I don't like it, because it isn't franchise mode. In which it isn't. Connected careers is nothing like franchise mode. I don't wanna to be a head coach, I don't wanna create a head coach, I don't wanna play as a player, or create a player. I just want regular franchise mode, where I'm virtually the owner. Where if I want to I can fire the entire coaching staff or get new sponsors for stadiums. I liked the game better that way.
                Don't makes changes to the game that nobody asked for.

                Madden will forever remain behind FIFA, NHL, and NBA 2K in sport games.

                    No. It wasn't smart. The problem with Connected Careers is that it doesn't work. It's convoluted, overly complicated, and lacks depth. It's trying to do way too many things at once for nothing. The modes don't need to be thrown into one.

                    2K manages to put out a fantastic superstar mode and a decent association mode, separately. Why can't EA do that without having to tangle them into a scrambled mess?

                    Madden '13 is terrible, gameplay-wise, anyways. I thought the demo was passable but after playing it it's easily the worst sports game of the year. I wouldn't even take it for free TBQH.

                        Same as always. Don't buy it. It's been garbage for 8 years.

                        All you can do is hope 2K Sports gets a shot at showing how it's done. We'll see how NCAA works out.

                          I guess I'm in the minority here because I think the gameplay is better than it has ever been. Connected careers coach mode is pretty much the same thing as the classic franchise mode, except, as mentioned, you can't fire the coach or bring in sponsors, etc. Other than that, it's pretty similar.

                          Like I said, I'm a big fan of the gameplay, and while I agree the past handful of maddens have been complete garbage, I really liked this year's.

                            I like the gameplay this year as well. The only thing I hate is linebackers jumping really high and intercepting passes. Other than that its great.

Man was I mad.

                              As for the game, I enjoy it. I play online more usually, and I also did the Madden Ultimate team which is pretty fun. Not sure who all has done that.

                              But yea, I do miss the old franchise mode as well.
