Electronic Arts has always been a leader when it comes to entertaining sports games. Madden NFL 13 is a new addition to the franchise. It gives sports enthusiasts the chance to immerse themselves in a world where they can be NFL stars.
The game delivers a more realistic experience than any previous football game. It’s designed to deliver real-time physics to ensure that no two plays will ever be exactly the same. The powerful new Infinity game engine was used in the development of Madden NFL 13. It offers improvements in gameplay and social functionality. Players don’t just get a chance to play as an NFL star, they can also play a coach and build their own franchise.
One of the best things about the game is that the roster includes retired players and coaches. NFL fans can invoke nostalgia by bringing back stars from the past.
There is a bit of diversity where the tactics are concerned. Players don’t have a specific set of rules they have to stick with. They can mix things up a bit. Speaking of diversity, the game is available on all current generation consoles and PC. The XBOX 360 version is compatible with Kinect.
The presentation offered in the game is on par with that of natural television broadcasts. The commentary audio is as realistic as it can get. Commentary is provided by Jim Nantz and Phil Simms from CBS. The two are featured in a cutscene at the start of each game. The background is stadium-specific depending on where the home game takes place.
For Madden NFL 13, EA introduced more than 200 new cutscenes before games and between plays. The cutscenes are as realistic as possible for a video game. Even though there is no halftime show, there is still a stats overlay.
As with most modern video games, this one supports multi-players. There is also a single player mode for those who prefer to play solo against the computer.
During gameplay, the computerized players are programmed to be intuitive. For example, whenever receivers are expecting the ball, there is an animation of them turning their heads to the quarterback. Also included are gestures based on the real life characteristics of the players. Victor Cruz’s “Salsa Dance” and Tim Tebow’s “Tebowing” are examples of this.
With so many advanced features, good gameplay, and realistic action, Madden NFL 13 is a must-have game for any football fan. Whether you’re a casual gamer or hardcore, you don’t want to pass up on a chance to play this game.
