Never mind the horrible Amazon reviews — if you're that concerned about Franchise Mode, perhaps it's time you go outside anyway. As for the rest of us, Madden NFL 13 ($60) is ready to fill the gaps between Monday and Thursday nights with the best football gaming yet, thanks to improvements like the all-new Infinity Engine for more realistic impacts and momentum transfers, a new pass-ready system, an all-new defensive AI system, and a new, refined presentation that mimics CBS NFL broadcasts. Of course, if you just have to have your classic Franchise goodness, Madden NFL 12 is only $20 bucks these days.
