Madden NFL 11 on the iPad is pretty awesome

5:00 PM on 07.23.2010 // Hamza CTZ Aziz

Just because Madden is coming to the iPad and the iPhone doesn't mean that it's going to be a watered down experience. All the teams and stadiums in the console version will be featured here plus there's going to be something that the console version guys might be jealous of.

Exclusive to the iPad is a new mode called "Vintage Voltage Football" and is a throwback to those electric football board games of yesteryear. EA wasn't ready to show off the new mode, but imagine Madden with everyone vibrating around on the field. The "glitches" will even remain intact so expect to see players going in circles or going to the wrong end zone. Best of all, announcer Gus Johnson will even be providing commentary on all the possible weird stuff that will be happening within the game.

As for the main game, you'll have freedom to completely ignore the standard plays and create something original before each play on offense. You'll be able to trace the route of where you want your players to go and you can save them to your playbook for future use. This feature is also available for the defense, and you have more control of the action as you can freeze the game as many times as you want to trace where your players will move.

Don't worry, this is just one type of control option. There will be traditional button controls and the "Game Flow" feature where the game runs plays automatically is also featured.

As for the iPhone version, I was shown Madden 10 and 11 side-by-side for comparison and it was like night and day. It was pretty impressive seeing how much more detail and improvements the new Madden received since the last game.

Check out Samit's latest preview for the console version of Madden NFL 11 for more on the game.

Robin secretly controls the boobs of Nintendo characters. She stole the Xenoblade boobs and took the Fatal Frame lingerie for herself. #DammitRobin [img][/img]

I was just playing Skyrim and wondered if anyone has come up with Fallout 3/New Vegas weapon mods for Skyrim? Fighting dragons with assault weapons sounds almost necessary. [img][/img]

For an early Christmas present I got my girlfriend Wooly World to go with our new Wii U. I've gotten more joy out of how adorable all the character designs are than I'd like to admit.

I'm currently writing a review for a mobile game, but only because I'm enjoying the hell out it. I'm honestly enjoying it far more than Puzzles and Dragons.

Damn, I think I'm Bruce Willis from Unbreakable. Just fell of a 12-foot ladder and all I got was a little scratch on my finger.

After I finish Fallout 4 I'm thinking of 100%ing Skyrim and then installing a TON of dinosaur mods on it.

4 hours into Hotline Miami 2 and I'm finding it just as fun as the original. So far it's a good balance between frustration and satisfaction. Still have no idea what the story is about.

1. Start playing Ocarina of Time again. 2. Start having fun. 3. Discover fishing area. 4. Stop having fun.

Holy shit the new David Bowie video/song is just lovely.

So many people angry at Play-Asia right now. Totally not exactly the kind of backlash Tecmo were trying to avoid by not releasing the game here in the first place.

If you're a UK kid there's a Wii U 32 GB Wind Waker Premium Pack on Amazon for £240. It says sale... I dunno how much of a saving that is. You tell me.

Community Question: Not strictly speaking video game-related, but screw it. Team Captain America or Team Iron Man?
