The game itself is great, very well judged for a mobile device. No defence (great decision), you just take turns on offence. You can actually RUN the ball this year and the graphics are a major upgrade.

The game is freemium so you know what that means - either make do with a set number of goes per hour and using a limited playbook or pony up for more. You can also buy new players to upgrade your team. For me none of this is a big issue; compare it to CSR - I enjoyed that, didn't pay a penny.

The negatives: I'll give them the benefit of the doubt as it's only been out a day but it's buggy as hell, drops connection and relies on your opponent getting back to you - so far I haven't completed a game against a human opponent.

That last point is going to make or break it for me.

Does anybody know if EA will ever make an update for iPod (4th generation) user to play in 3d gameplay? P.s there's no glitches for me yet just takes a while load sometimes.

The graphics and animations are a major upgrade from what we've seen previously. I would love to see a more traditional Madden game done using this engine.

Why the �������� does my quarterback fumble the ball half the time he gets hit?

Its not like quarterbacks in real life fumble left and right every other play, so why does this game do it? At least let us be able to protect the ball if your going to have him be some pus sy bi tch who cant hold onto the ball

Other than that and energy recharge rate the games good. I can handle the glitches i guess

Game is fun however wish I knew my kicker could not make a fg unless I'm at the 20. You need to get at good one otherwise you are punting at the 25 .. Just go for it on 4th.

Can't complain yet.

After playing it for awhile now I really like this game. Only drawback is you need to use Facebook as your friends list. That it take a Radom shot to random people playing. 50% of them have forfeited.

The auction system on the iPhone sucks though. If you want to buy something I suggest doing it on Facebook. Allot easier to look for cheap high cards for starters (85-89) unlike iPhone you have to go by 10. (80-90).

Also funny how I get sacked allot on certain plays even if my ot is way higher then the opp de. You just need to learn to move to the position where that de gets blocked.

My suggestion is to get a fast & qb fast hb. It is really easy to run in this game. Passing is hit and miss some times. My touch pass goes out of bounds or really deep. I guess just practice will help.

Still when you are playing against someone that wants to play its fun and competitor if same rating.

Anyone else having this issue on iPhone ?

Touchbacks = touchdowns

I got tackled in my end zone for a touchback but got a touchdown instead.

Later I threw an int in the ends one and they got a td.

Kinda messed up. Still love this game though

Just make a regular proper Madden with more variety in the 'Maddenisms'. This kind of deal sucks!

Well found new glitch with the tou back =td glitch.

There is no offsides when they are punting. You stand in the way of the snap... It says double and then you recover it. However you get it where they have it going their way

So if they punt from their 20 and you recover it at the 20 you have to go 80 yds not 20.

They really rushed this game

Another glitch is if you go into 2nd half you can run your guy up to the kicker can catch the ball where they kick off from. So you have to end the 1st half and go into 2nd half. Run all the way up (don't stop or they will kick) and place in front of kicker.

My hopes is no one is using these while really playing. I find these play against my 2nd team.
