I've been a hardcore Madden player since 1992, but I am sick. After agonizing through 2 hours of meaningless FOTF cutscenes, I finally get to play my career, only to find out the game simulates 9 weeks ahead!!?? If I am playing a career mode in a sports game, I don't want any games to be simulated. Hello!!!??? Seriously??? That's ridiculous!!! And for the record, anyone who is a real Madden fan does not give any dam about some hokey storyline. That said, some of the aspects of FOFTF are cool. I like the progression from HS to college to NFL, and I can deal with the cinematics, but for God's sake, let us play each game of the career. If EA wants to emulate NBA 2K, it's fine, but do it right! I never had to accept simulated stats/results in ANY OTHER SPORTS GAME. Absolute trash. Gameplay is much better than what most reviews state, so at least online play is still viable. In the end, I would not buy this game if I had known.
