Almost certainly a misprice!

Ordered this last night, forgot to post this up.
Not even advertised, yep probably a misprice

Great price!
The game is much improved over last year, Screen passes actually work now and the impact engine is also a great feature it's also good if you're new to Madden as the game flow chooses plays that are best for your team/situation.

I can't see the price of the game dropping below £20 until next August going by previous maddens so definitely worth it at this price

was looking for this, even offered £31 over in F/T thread. Cheers.

Superb price.
And it's convinced me to buy over renting!

Cheers OP

last madden i played was on the megadrive i think. what are the latest gen maddens like

Better than the mega drive ones!
haha!

They're pretty good. Each year is much of a muchness with only slight improvements.

But seeing as the last Madden NFL for megadrive was (i think) 1994, i think it's safe to say that you'll see more than a marginal graphical improvement!

This is certainly a notable improvement on last year. The game still plays the same, but the core mechanics are much improved. Connected Careers is also excellent. Highly recommended.

The mega drive one was amazing. Run with the ball to the flanks, run into the end zone while jumping and spinning

I was exactly the same! Downloaded the demo on a quiet Saturday evening with some mates, ended up playing it throughout the weekend and then watching week 1 of the NFL season on SkySports.

2 key points to be taken from this story 1) I have a ridiculously addictive personality 2) this game is awesome!

Great price and ya blocking for once is decent allowing for screens and a nice run game too but PA is still useless.

Amazon have price-matched, which is even better.

Can I play as the Jets? is it a good game?

It does feature all the teams in the AFC and NFC, so yes, Jets are in. And judging by the reviews, it is a good game.

Since they introduced Gameflow in M11, it's possible to play and enjoy Madden titles purely as videogames, even if you know nothing about the sport. Given the sport's almost non-existent media coverage here in Britain (and the fact that so few of us are taught its rules), this situation must apply to many.

Anyway, newbies can play and have success with the game by lowering the difficulty and using gameflow (to have the game automatically select the best play for you). Then all you have to do is either press the corresponding button when a receiver (one of the players running down the field who you can throw the ball to) is open (no opposing players are close enough/able to intercept), or run through a gap in the other team's defence (a 'seam'), making use of your blockers (members of your team who will try to protect you from being tackled). Incidentally, if you've got good peripheral vision, it helps because you can monitor your quarterback (the guy who throws the ball) and look for open receivers at the same time.

This superficial method of playing can be an entertaining way of getting into and learning the sport. American football is surprisingly deep (most Brits have no idea) and very strategic -- involving far more strategy than in English football. As you play, you'll inevitably learn (from trial and error) basic strategies that will make you a better player. If you want to learn more, there's a wealth of information on the internet. I've provided two links below.

Rules:
nfl.com/rul…all

Terms:
en.wikipedia.org/wik…all

It's also worth mentioning that in previous years (and mostly likely in this one too), there's a training mode, which lets you practice specific skills, such as passing, rushing (running with the ball) and defence. This mode can be very useful for new players.

Voted hot, as M13 is supposed to be the best Madden in years (mainly due to the introduction of Backbreaker-esque physics) and for some reason Madden games never seem to drop much in price.

Price gone straight back up to £41.77 and my order wasn't dispatched the next working day like that stated.
Makes me think they might cancel -_-

Has anyone had theirs dispatched yet?

rahhjarr

Has anyone had theirs dispatched yet?



Nope - which is ominous...

I've not had mine disptached but the monet has left my account, which means by the distance sale of goods act a contract has been formed and they are obliged to sell the item.

"Due to circumstances beyond our control there is a delay in despatching the item listed below. The new estimated despatch date is listed next to the item.

Estimated despatch: After 6 Weeks "
Hmm hahah!

Nope....called up twice spoke to the same person who said it seemed odd why it wasn't dispatched while they have stock, said they'd call me back, obviously they didn't. Estimated dispatch after 6 weeks on the site.
Perfect.....

Got the same. Phoned up - seemingly they have 2 suppliers and one has stock and one doesnt??? Never heard anything so ridiculous. Have cancelled which is probably what they wanted but cant be bothered with the hassle.

I'm gonna sweat it out, even in six weeks, its a good price!

Yeah same, I wasn't really gonna get the game it was just a good price!

Same, worst we'll get if they cancel is a voucher and a refund.

Tbh, my reasoning was that in six weeks time that will probably be the price anyway.....sports game prices tend to reduce after the first month or so of issue.

Not Madden games. They tend to hold their value quite well.

CamelCamelCamel suggests otherwise. It was down at £23 by the beginning of November last year (Madden 12) albeit it did go back up.

Games are always liable to have the odd dip in price. My point was that Madden games do not follow the pattern of other sports games, which it seems has been made out.

Told 6 weeks, just received a email to say it has been dispatched!

same although it appears to be £26 on their wesbite

Has anyone else had this 'dispatched' but still haven't got it yet? I got the dispatched email on 26th Sept, but there is still no sign of it.

I received my copy 4 days after it was dispatched I have had issues with tesco before where it took 14 working days to arrive.
