So the lockout is over, pre-season football kicks off tonight and another year of Madden is just on the horizon. With another year means changes to the franchise, and one question I always get on games like this is, what’s new? Why do I need this one instead of 2011? Other than the Eagles Super team? Which leads me to this question how come the Eagles do not get the hate that the Miami Heat do? And another thing….. Sorry anyway, this is what’s new in Madden Football 2012.
With this feature you can construct your ultimate gameplan by creating your own playbook or modifying an existing one. You can select up to 400 offensive or defensive plays from 75 different playbooks. You can even integrate them in to your gameplan in the GameFlow system to create an authentic situational game.
With the new collision system you can maintain full control of your players up until the point of impact in both tackling and blocking. This will provide the most authentic collisions ever in Madden. This is achieved by over 100 new tackle animations and 40 gang tackles and a new system that uses the players momentum.
