Anybody have their copy ship yet from Amazon. Mine hasnt shown to ship yet, but Amazon charged my card yesterday morning. So I'm guessing its on the way, just the tracking system is running a bit slow.

And its still showing the same status. I've never had a Amazon package not show up on time, but I'm losing hope on this one. About to start bytching at somebody!

Not impressed at all. They really threw this game together. The announcers are the worst. It said" pier paul(giants DE) is about to kick off". How could this be? Too many interceptions. Same as last year with such few tweaks. I will buy it once it is 20 bucks somewhere or SI does that deal again. Thank god for rentals!

If anyone didn't get their game today from Amazon and had release day deliver check your Amazon account page. I read on another forum that someone got an additional $20 credit for the delay, not sure how true that may be though.

I got my email early this morning stating that there was a delay in shipment and that it would come tomorrow. Also I did get an additional $20 credit on my account, I assumed it was for that as I didnt know what else it could of been. Real busy day today so I wasnt to upset but long day at work tomorrow and I would of liked to bring it with me to kill some time, oh well.

End Chat
You are now connected to Santhosh Kumar from Amazon.com.
Santhosh Kumar:Hello! My name is Santhosh.
Hi! Will, how can I help you?
Will, are we both connected
?
Are you still there? You've been idle for 3 minutes, and I want to make sure our chat's still connected. If you aren't able to respond in 2 minutes, I'll need to close the chat.
Me:hello
Santhosh Kumar:Yes, I'm still here for you.
Me:Thanks
Santhosh Kumar:You've been idle for 5 minutes.
Me:i am contacting because I ordered Madden 12 that was supposed to be delivered today and the order has still not shipped
Santhosh Kumar:Let em know your order number.
Me:July 26, 2011
Order #105-2140166-203XXXXX
Santhosh Kumar:Thanks.
Will, I'm sorry for the delay in shipping your order.
I researched and see that this order has already entered the shipping process.
Me:isnt there a guarantee the game is supposed to arrive today
Santhosh Kumar:It'd be delivered to you within today as per the estimation, but the order is not yet shipped out.
I suggest you to wait one day and check the status of your order.
Me:is there any type of compensation or credit you offer for the game arriving late
if i had have known it would not be here on time i would have just bought it from a store
Santhosh Kumar:Yes, I understand your situation.
I'll offer you a %5 promotional certificate to your account for the delay.
Is there anything else I can do for you today?
Me:is that 5% off my next purchase?
i would hope atleast a $20 credit
Santhosh Kumar:I'm sorry I'm unable to offer you a $20 credit.
Instead, I would like to offer Free One-Day Shipping for your next order.
Is this OK for you?
Me:I'm already an Amazon prime member. One day shipping isnt really a perk
Santhosh Kumar:Will, I can increase the promotional credit to $7.
Is this OK for you?
I wish to do more, but our system won't allow me to issue more than %7 promotional certificate.
Me:I understand.. and that is acceptable.
Is there way you can ensure the game ships as soon as possible. My bigger concern is that is still hasnt shipped
Santhosh Kumar:Please accept our sincere apologies for the situation.
Yes, I can confirm you that you'll receive your order within 1-2 business days.
If not please do contact us.
We'll take appropriate action.
Can I help you with anything else?
Me:Thank you sir
That is it.

Oh trust I'm calling today. Still hasnt shipped. This is bullshyt
post #43 of 56
anyone else disappointed in this game. I am usually very pro EA but this game is a step back in my opinion.
post #44 of 56
game stinks. This is the first time I will not be getting this game. I cant remember ever not buying madden. I might get it on ebay when its like 10 bucks in a few months. Its awful
post #45 of 56
What about 2011? Worth going to the bin for this one? Also do they have roster updates for madden 11?
post #46 of 56
Out of curiosity, why is it that you think the game is worse than the previous year's? Obviously the commentary sucks, and a few other things, but I'm finding the gameplay itself to be better.

I don't touch Franchise mode until opening day rosters though. I've been doing lots of Play Now and Superstar.

Superstar is way too easy, my LOLB is a 99 before the end of the first season.

I much prefer the speed of last years game. This year is very arcade-ish to me. I know I can adjust the sliders for off-line but that does not help online.

Oh, yeah the first thing I did in options was set speed to slow, but I guess you can't do that online.

I think the games a nice step forward. The team intros, the broadcast camera angles, the stadium blimp cam views, the dynamic lighting and the way the sun accurately moves across the sky depending on what time you choose, the uniform degradation, the improvements to the grass, the new collision system, improved defensive AI.

Could definitely tell a larger difference this year than normal. Just some glitches and poor commentary get in the way.

You guys arent going to believe this. But here's the ending to the story. This time BOTH Amazon & UPS screwed up. Got an email late last night saying my order had finally "shipped" and it listed a tracking number. Checked the tracking number and my damn game has been sitting in the rental office since Tuesday at 1:30pm. UPS never left a yellow sticky. Amazon never updated the status of my order from "Shipping soon" until last night (Thursday night).. so the whole time I (and Amazon customer reps) were under the assumption the game had never shipped. I even had one Customer Rep tell me that Amazon sold out, and was waiting to recieve more copies of the game. Thats why my order never shipped.. so she credited me a $10 GC.

I should have checked the rental office anyways, but this two MF need to get their shyt together. Oh well.. I ended getting $20 preorder bonus GC.. and additional $7, $10, $10 GC's for my worrying and bytching to Amazon's customer service. Still not necessarily happy about the situation.. but atleast I only paid $47 for a $60 game that arrived 3 days late. And I have the game to play during the long weekend.

Here is what the tracking info says:

Damn, glad you finally got yours.

So I played a couple of games of Madden 12's Ultimate Team mode against online opponents. Is the frame rate always extremely crappy when playing online? Both guys I played against it seemed the frame rate was at about 15. Not a lot of input lag, but the frame rate was awful.

Also, it reaffirmed why I don't play against people I don't know very often. The first guy did this thing where he ran back and forth with his middle linebacker constantly before the snap so my o-line wouldn't pick him up. The second guy just blitzed every down. I bet I had 500 yards receiving with Barry Sanders because I was killing them with the screen play, then they wanted to act like I wasn't playing right.

Glad to see that Madden is no different than FIFA.

For what it's worth, now that I've started franchise mode, I'm pretty disappointed. If you wait until the day 1 update to start your franchise, that includes all the cuts up until that point, which makes sense... but when you start a franchise, it makes up random players to fill out your preseason roster. So basically by the time the computer sims out cuts, you have no idea what the roster might be, and it could have a ton of fake players on it. They should just have a record of what players started out the season and keep them in franchise mode.

Also, the interface sucks now, just a bunch of text options on a mostly black screen. And expanded rosters in preseason, but no practice squad or IR that I've seen yet.

I still like the gameplay better than any year yet, but franchise is horrible, which is a shame since that's where I spend most of my time.

Edit: And also kind of annoying is that twice now (in probably about 20 games played total), I've thrown the ball underneath to a receiver who has perfect positioning on the defender, only to have that defender phase through the receiver as if he wasn't even there and intercept it.

Anyone still play? I hated 2013 so I picked this up for $20 new. I wanted to get some of the MUT achievements. I still can't get the 2 pick 6s achievement.
