The official Madden 11 vs NFL 11 thread!!

with madden being released today, its time to start up the great the debate: who has the better football game: EA's Madden or Gamelofts NFL? personally i think madden 10 was better then nfl 10 by a landslide, but gameloft has made vast improvements over last years. i have both 2011 games, so here's my comparisin:

Graphics- Madden
Running plays- Gameloft
Passing plays- Gameloft
Defense- Madden
tutorial- Gameloft
Game modes- Madden
Multiplayer- only madden has multiplayer, bluetooth only
menus- Madden
music- Madden
commentary- Madden

the result: i think that game loft did a great job on controlling the offense, but thats where it ends. there is no user pass defense whatsoever, you need to pray for your db to rarely stop it. maddens total defensive control is head over heels better then that, the grapics are better, there are trades unlike in gamelofts, and the menu system is unchanged from last year, only now it has pictures of drew brees instead of polamalu and fitzgerald. except, another place where gameloft is superior is its indepth tutorial, having you on the field using the controlls, unlike madden having you flip through screenshots and text. if your looking for a great football experience on your iphone and ipod, go for madden at 7.99, but if your looking for a casual pick up and play, gameloft is more user friendly and cheaper at 6.99 wich should very soon drop in price, where madden propbably wont untill 2012 comes out.

I just finished a game of Madden. Definitely better. The animations arent nearly as bad as people made them out to be either.

Gameloft's NFL 2010 definitely won last year, but this year it's a whole different story. Madden definitely takes it.

Lol have ya'll noticed the new gameloft logo thingy? I think it's pretty gay compared to their old one. Just saying.

Do both games have instant replays this year around (since Madden missed out on it last year?)

If so, are they save-able (a-la X2 Football)?
