I love playing Madden I think I’ve bought and played almost every Madden that has been released. I’m not one of those crazy guys that believe that the curse is real, but I do think that the string of unfortunate injuries is a very strange coincidence.
But looking at the newest cover with Calvin Johnson, for the most part I think it’s not too bad. The image with the background captures the hard-working attitude of Detroit. It’s pretty simple and I like it.
But one thing I really don’t know about is the fact that it seems real up close. In previous covers, you get at least most of the players’ body up to the knees. But with this one, it’s just the top half of Johnson’s body.
Maybe it’s to show off the new Nike gear, but I think they could have zoomed out a little bit. Not really sure if I want to see Johnson’s teeth that up close. But it’s just a minor thing. I can’t wait to play this game.
