View Full Version : Madden 13 Demo comes out tomorrow

08-13-2012, 06:47 PM
The demo, which will be available as a free download on Tuesday, August 14, will offer two Play Now matchups. The first is a rematch of last season's NFC Championship game between the New York Giants and San Francisco 49ers. You can get a sneak peek at the intro of the game in the trailer above. The second matchup will give players their first look at Robert Griffin III in a game between the Washington Redskins and Seattle Seahawks.

The demo includes the redesigned pregame presentation as well as all of the new gameplay mechanics in Madden NFL 13 including Total Control Passing; the Ball Hawk mechanic, play action abort, use of Kinect functionality on Xbox 360 only, and the Infinity Engine. Other features in the demo include the new Main Menu Action Grid, new theme music, improved lighting with HDR, motion blur, and an instant replay overhaul.

The demo is an entire game with 5 minute quarters, and you can choose difficulty, EA explained. Madden NFL 13 Game Face will also be accessible in the demo allowing you to create yourself for use in the full version of the game when it releases later this month. For the first time, you'll be able to put yourself in the game as a player or coach using your Game Face.

This demo will determine if I buy or not. srs. They better make the demo amazing. I played last years demo after all the talk that 12 was different than 11. The demo felt just like 11. I thought to myself "must be because its just a demo...full game will be different"


I was wrong.

Completely forgot about the demo. Im really looking forward to the game for the connected careers. I know there are some missing pieces to the new game but Im really excited, but not as excited as I am for the new NBA 2K game in October

I've been raping people with the Seahawks on 12 recently. Just went on a 10 game win streak with them. Oh lawd dat defense.

Madden is a game that's so hard to be good at, one dumb mistake can make the difference in a win or loss. Like I consider myself to be pretty good with a 200-100 record srs (something like that I haven't played since April) with 15~ losses being from network issues. Mind = blown at dudes that have like 80% win ratios

yes I've played that much
inb4 that's garbage.

I know for a fact it isn't 12am EST, stayed up last year waiting for NHL 12 demo and other times before that. Normally disappointed by like 2am so I just give up and download in the AM.

12am PST is more realistic since their HQ is located on the WC.

Lol ive never played in a tourney but consider my self decent but i would take that bet in a heartbeat without ever seeing you play.

In a no-cheese match theres no way anyone on this board would beat me by 21. Im not saying you arent a good player but thats a bad bet for you unless you cheese

If he was using the Browns, and I could use whoever I wanted, I would make that bet.

Not sure what you exactly mean by cheesing. I block kicks, and I will run the same play over and over again if you cannot stop it.

If you have a ps3 I'll play you right now.

One time a guy completely demolished me in Madden 10 using the Panthers and Matt Moore. He scrambled almost every play.

Actually the worst cheesing I've ever dealt with was these 2 players:

-Philadelphia Eagles being run by Chip Kelly guy.....This is the dude who picks the Eagles and runs no huddle all ****ing game with the offense with Maclin & D-Jax on deep routes throwing it deep hoping they run under it. When that fails he just scrambles around with Vick until he gets hurt like a retard.

-Get within the 20 yard line and throw it up to my 6'3+ receiver guy.....Self explanatory. This is the dude who realizes he could end up with a FG so he has to cheat the game by running the same route over and over again to get his WR to make the jumping catch for the TD.

I literally raged so hard after a game ended on a play like that I threw my controller against the wall and for the last few months the battery part hasn't been stable. brb running the ball and the controller disconnects.

I never got why people abuse the game like that.
They think it's special..lol no sh*t I can rocket catch and nano blitz. But then I'm not really playing a football like game. It's just a button mashing game.

1 on 1, without any bs, I'm the legit mike martz or sean payton offensively in madden lol.

No hate on you personally but i hate phaggots on madden that audible every single play and call 3 hot routes every fuking time. Just pick what you want at the playcall screen. I consider it cheesing because its incredibly easy to take advantage of the cpu CBs with hot routes.

I never call hot routes at all unless its third down and im down on the scoreboard. And i always start the game using gameflow on first and 2nd down every series. I only pick my own play on 3rd downs and possibly later on in the game if im losing. I do that because there are soooooo many money plays in madden and its way too easy to score by picking you own play. I prefer the challenge and sim style of gameflow

given up on EA. its just time to scrap the engine and restart. Every game feels the same and its so easy to tell what the defense is in presnap etc. And hell man coverage always gets burnt and then if you play a cheeser online and run zone they can always find the hole which you can stop user controling one side then they just abuse the other side of the field. Game just lost its fun to me. Honestly would rather they just come out with a new NFL Street. At least i knew that game wasn't supposed to be too realistic and could have fun f'n around with it

I dont understand this tho.

Hot routes/audibles are way more frequent at the LOS in real life than they are in video games.

I dont really think its cheesing to recognize if its a zone or man coverage and adjust the routes accordingly.

Those random words are his audibles. Just code words for certain ****.

I remember one of those ESPN features on it a few years ago and guys like Joseph Addai, Dallas Clark, etc were saying he audibles a play up to 3 times at the line depending on what he sees and everyone has to be alert to the changes.

You just suck at the game. If you play with the right team, man coverage is dominate. If you play with the right team, zone coverage is dominate. You may have to adjust some of the zones and drop some lineman, but it's possible to have a very good pass defense playing zone coverage. It doesn't matter if the opponent knows what you're doing if you execute.

For example: Let's say we're doing Ravens vs. Packers and I'm the Ravens.

I'm playing you man coverage 90% of the game because the Ravens corners are so good. 2 man under from different formations depending on how many receivers you have on the field, and press coverage because with 2 man under, even if your receiver initially beats the press, it won't be a touchdown. Ed Reed might even pick it.

I'm putting
Webb on Jennings
Jimmy Smith on Nelson
Caryn Williams on Finley
Dominique Foxworth on Driver

Smith and Webb should shut down the 2 big receivers, you're main priority needs to be stopping Finley. You may have to drop would be blitzing lineman into coverage and have a QB spy to make sure Rodgers doesn't run on you, but it's fairly easy to do.

You're going to run vanilla man coverage vs Green Bay? Good luck.

I can picture it now, 4 straight run plays/check downs for 6-10 yards each, followed by PA pass to Nelson. Not to mention the fact that you are going to get completely roasted on slant and post/corner routes.

lol @ everyone sayin it sucks

its a demo not the full game calm the fuk down.

on that note the runnin is alot better now the running back actually has alot better animation when he breaks free from a tackle.

u cant do the slant out route anymore(which was a glitch play anyways)

If u think u have the best user skills in madden 12....... 13 is going to make u feel like a noob



most of the people who say it suck are the people who suck at the game..... the game is meant to be played @ the ALL-madden setting if u cant play it on that then dont even bother playing online

My thoughts after playing a couple games:
- These new commentators are annoying and too dull
- All-Madden is nearly impossible, the recievers drop every pass even without being hit
- RG3 is going to be extremely over used in this years game [93 speed, good accuracy too]
- Some of the new running animations are cool
- IDGAF what the demo is like, because at the end of the day I buy madden every year.

lol @ everyone sayin it sucks

its a demo not the full game calm the fuk down.

on that note the runnin is alot better now the running back actually has alot better animation when he breaks free from a tackle.

u cant do the slant out route anymore(which was a glitch play anyways)

If u think u have the best user skills in madden 12....... 13 is going to make u feel like a noob

lol the demo is trash, I feel like I am playing an arcade game
why keep switching the kicking every year?
A slant route is a glitch? lol sure sometimes you could use it in a bunch formation and get good separation, but slants are a corner stone route in the nfl.
First play on All-madden I ran back a kickoff for a TD and it wasn't even difficult.
Audibles are a huge part of the competitive competition and they seem like trash.

You would think the interface would also be a lot better considering its 2012.
Madden 12 rapes this demo and that is bad.

And although it is a demo, you can understand how the game play goes from it. I saw some of the dumbest tackling animations as well.

There's actually a ton of cool animations that they added this year. I caught a pass with Crabtree who ended up awkwardly doing the splits after getting blasted.

Things I don't like:

-The field looks like shyt to me.
-The playart looks oldschool as fck, feels like I'm playing Madden '02.
-You can't manually move blitzers. They return back to their original positions. Gonna have to be extra creative to find heat this year.

Gameplay feels smooth, I'm diggin it.

It matters only in the sense that if the offensive player gets tackled in the wrong direction, it could rob you of a first down or a TD.

At least that's what it seemed like to me. It seemed like the player should have fallen forward for the first down, but he fell sideways instead for 3rd-and-1.

You're going to run vanilla man coverage vs Green Bay? Good luck.

I can picture it now, 4 straight run plays/check downs for 6-10 yards each, followed by PA pass to Nelson. Not to mention the fact that you are going to get completely roasted on slant and post/corner routes.

*Mike Mayock/Expert Analysis*

QB spy will stop any "check down" you speak of

Run plays? Lmao yeah ok. You might get a few runs, but you wouldn't be able to run the ball consistently. If that was a problem, I'd just run blitzes minus the press coverage.

Lol @ thinking Webb/Smith can't stop Jennings/Nelson. You're an idiot if that's what you think. Webb is 93 speed/95 MCV and Smith is 90 speed/92 MCV. If you have a PS3 I'll bend you over right now. The trend on here seems to be a bunch of keyboard warriors, when I'm willing to just show that I am dominate.

If Madden wants to be realistic, anytime you play as the Cowboys, you should have to immediately start scrambling after the snap.

Hoop_Dreams
08-14-2012, 11:59 AM
No you wouldn't.

You just suck at the game. If you play with the right team, man coverage is dominate. If you play with the right team, zone coverage is dominate. You may have to adjust some of the zones and drop some lineman, but it's possible to have a very good pass defense playing zone coverage. It doesn't matter if the opponent knows what you're doing if you execute.

For example: Let's say we're doing Ravens vs. Packers and I'm the Ravens.

I'm playing you man coverage 90% of the game because the Ravens corners are so good. 2 man under from different formations depending on how many receivers you have on the field, and press coverage because with 2 man under, even if your receiver initially beats the press, it won't be a touchdown. Ed Reed might even pick it.

I'm putting
Webb on Jennings
Jimmy Smith on Nelson
Caryn Williams on Finley
Dominique Foxworth on Driver

Smith and Webb should shut down the 2 big receivers, you're main priority needs to be stopping Finley. You may have to drop would be blitzing lineman into coverage and have a QB spy to make sure Rodgers doesn't run on you, but it's fairly easy to do.
Yes, I would.

08-14-2012, 12:03 PM

We gonna act like I don't have man beaters? Lol at a vanilla 2 man under.

Honestly if you were playing with the Packers, I'd use the Falcons or Seahawks and run variations of zone coverage in a base formation. The Ravens offense is way too weak.

And that "vanilla" 2-man under works very well if you use the right team, and the Ravens have a great team to do it.

"Brb I'll just run slants all the way across the field"- I'll either blitz or put my 2 DE/OLBs in the purple zone, with a QB spy to stop anything over the middle.

"Brb I'll run draw plays"-Meet Ngata/Lewis/Suggs/Redding/Johnson

I don't just run a 2-man under. I do a lot of things. I was just giving him something basic that he could use without making it too complicated.


Oh and the Ravens corners can shut down the Packers receivers. You may get a few, but I can guarantee you won't move down the field fast, and you will eventually f*ck up.

Brb 10 guys in coverage, and you'll still stop the run. Lol. Doesn't matter if you're the Ravens, when you got guys moving backwards in zones, they won't tackle my RB till he's 6 yards past them. Draws murder f@g D.

And if I call a Pass while you play your 2-man under with a purple on each side, I'll just sit in the pocket all day and wait until someone gets open. Dat playmaker feature comes in handy.

Once you realize your coverage D doesn't work, you'll try to blitz and that's when I hit you deep.

If you have a nice O you can keep it close, but you won't stop me on D.

Like I said, I'd probably use the Falcons/Seahawks because the Ravens O is way too weak. You picked out the obvious flaws in the defense, good job. I'm sure who's never played the game could do that. The philosophy of that defense is the longer you're on the field, the better, because you have more time to f*ck up. I did that for the beginning of my Madden 12 career. Now I rarely play man, and hardly ever use the Ravens. I've only used the Falcons/Seahawks recently.

I'm not bad at the game at all. I can consitently shut out the CPU on all Madden and can hold my own in all ranked matches online. The fact remains is Madden will always be who can exploit the AI better online. Yeah no crap you can drop d-line and everything but whats the fun in that. Brb rushing 2 people and calling this a football game. Its so arcadey its ridiculous. brb using an All QB offensive line and blocking an all All-Pro defense line. I use to find Madden extrememly fun and took it real serious and got ranked pretty high in the older ones but now its just repetitive and boring.

Somehow this version feels more arcade/shtty and looks less realistic than last year. Eli Manning and Tom Caughlin look like olympic power lifters.
The hyped up improved tackling just looks stupid as fukk, guys will go flying or fold in half regardless of the angles on the tackle. The dumbasfuk playclock runoff is a forced option in the demo, you often cannot audible out of a formation without a delay of game/timeout. The 'total control passing' that they are advertising is the exact same as it's been for years, and you can abuse slants all day long. Blockers still get clueless the second you hit sprint. Overall trash, worse than last year/10.
I wish they would just fold for a year like NBA Live for a year and actually attempt to make an improved game. Or stop being phaggots and acquiring exclusive rights.
Depending on how franchise is, I likely wont buy it for the first year in at least 6. Fukk EA, I love football.

I bought Madden 12 and played maybe 1-2 hours total of that game. Traded it in for Skyrim later on. It might have been because I was so into Fifa I barely played Madden.

Well I just played a full game on the demo. Before I started I already thought I'd hate it and went in with a negative opinion of the game. Must say I was pretty entertained. Game wasn't perfect and there was some stupid shiit that happened but what game doesn't? I might buy it but I know once Fifa comes out I probably won't be playing Madden...

But the demo was much better than I expected. Maybe its cause I never really played 12.

Then don't buy it every year then?

I mean you would have to be an idiot to buy a game every year.

I don't play video games as much as I did like 2- 3 years ago and haven't bought a madden game for that long. So I am excited about buying this one, to play with either RGIII or Luck.

I don't. I'm trying to enlighten the masses.

I bought Madden 12 and played maybe 1-2 hours total of that game. Traded it in for Skyrim later on. It might have been because I was so into Fifa I barely played Madden.

Every year they say that the demo version has to exclude certain stuff (due to size), and every year the demo is really the full game. Chances are what you just played is going to be the retail release.

They use the same chit in every madden. Each year that goes by I see the same bugs and glitches I did 5 maddens ago. They have a full year to fix stuff and they don't do it, instead they just update the roster, change the skins and maybe add in 1 or 2 new features that are always broken. They also degrade superstar mode more and more as years go by.

I'm sick of EA Sports football games. The core engine has been almost untouched since this generation of consoles has come out, therefore making the game 'feel' the same way every year. EA can spend all the time they want putting bells and whistles and a new coat of paint on the game, but people are getting burnt out on the feeling that Madden/NCAA gives you when you play. It's the same damn game as always.

i honestly have to laugh at EA saying this game has a "whole new engine" during E3 and all the interviews during the past few months, its basically the same with new animations that are glitchier than ever. Hopefully it changes in the real game but I doubt it.

In other news, this lack of changes in NCAA is starting to catch up to EA, with the overall sales of NCAA this year down almost 100k copies sold over the first 3 weeks, even with the game being $40 at release from a ton of retailers






and yet I'll still end up buying both sadly

I think I'm going to get this because I love football so much and am getting bored of MW3 but it doesn't seem that great. I used to buy Madden every year until 2010. They changed the audible system and some other aesthetic things that I wasn't a fan of. Also there wasn't enough improvement from year to year, their highlighted features would be annoying gimmicks like the QB vision cone. The demo seemed alright, I'm not going to complain about dumb stuff in that video but I can understand his concern. The game is being touted by EA and the developers for its great physics engine. If they have issues that were known last year and are in 2012 as well, that's a problem.

Play madden 07 and then madden 13 demo and tell me they're the same game. EA has made great strides over time it's always an incremental increase tho so the change is barely noticeable. This year is looking like its going to be bad though. I expect a couple huge gameplay glitches due to the new engine. Madden 14 will

The problem is when are we going to get EA's version of "Next Gen" football?

They promised that to us maybe 7-8 years ago in which the game would look completely different on 360/PS3 compared to the older models and nothing has changed.

All they do is keep making small changes that only make the game look more cartoonish instead of doing a complete overhaul and using the type of graphics engine you'd see in something like LA Noire or even the Battlefield series.

I mean for **** sakes, EA makes the Battlefield series. They can't consult them to make a sports game?

I am in disbelief that EA made the gameplay even worse than Madden 12.

You can't even get a proper angle to tackle a RB unless its some exagerrated, unrealistic tackle. If you can't get one of those tackles then the RB just breaks free with no regard for any momentum or a CPU AI that slows a guy down if they're trying to get into the open field and see defenders closing in on them.

The zone defense is too strong as these guys are literally in the passing lane as soon as they slide over.

Once again a complete disregard for actual physical momentum that exists in real life.

These dudes drop backwards in an angle that would make it seem like they are gliding with their cleats.

I enjoy FIFA, but I prefer the graphics engine of PES over it.

Would love to have the overall graphics engine of PES without guys looking like stick figures with the same button set-up that FIFA has for low crosses, touch passes, chip shot goals, etc.

But FIFA's manager mode is a win. That youth scouting system made me play multiple seasons to see if my 14 year old with 82-88 potential would reach his potential on my team so I could stop loaning him out for experience.

And agreed on PES graphics. I just tried that game the other day because they have a demo out and the graphics were pretty sweet. The game seemed a little slow compared to Fifa but it makes it a little more realistic.

Will buy (like half of you still will) since I don't have any games atm, only thing that will make me just wait for 2k13 (since I'll only be playing that once it drops) is if the full game gets a **** load of bad reviews

Yea after playing it more I take back some of my hate. Its much better than I originally thought, especially compared to NCAA13. Tackling physics aren't perfect yet but thats kind of to be expected, and I don't like the kick meter but overall its good.

Also really like that they added the Nascar package for the Giants defense lol, and that JPP is a beast ingame like in real life.

Yeah I don't see how you could ever miss a field goal with that. Too easy even in All-Madden, maybe it'll be tough online but prefer the 12's meter.

I'm not bad at the game at all. I can consitently shut out the CPU on all Madden and can hold my own in all ranked matches online. The fact remains is Madden will always be who can exploit the AI better online. Yeah no crap you can drop d-line and everything but whats the fun in that. Brb rushing 2 people and calling this a football game. Its so arcadey its ridiculous. brb using an All QB offensive line and blocking an all All-Pro defense line. I use to find Madden extrememly fun and took it real serious and got ranked pretty high in the older ones but now its just repetitive and boring.



this. I use to defend Madden but I'm just seriously ready for a new football game.

People are always going to try to find ways to get heat on the QB.

Simple 4 man rushes don't get to the QB like they do IRL, so guys try to find ways to manipulate the O-line to get heat (aka nano).

EA made an effort to stop nanos this year with the stationary players on defense. You can't place LB's or DB's in gaps anymore. If you try to move them they return to their original position. Nanos will still be in the game though, you just gotta be a little more creative.

And for you guys who whine about nanos, they're so easy to stop. Step 1: Identify where the blitz is coming from. Step 2: Slide protect to the side of the blitz, and block an HB to the weakside.

Kills almost any blitz.

You sim players need to stop whining about online not emulating reality and get better.

It's not cheese if I run the same play over and over. You just suck for not being able to adjust to it and stop it.

There's a counter for EVERYTHING.
