Verizon to offer Madden NFL 12 for free from October 1st to the 3rd
And remember, Madden Football is more than just stick figures, even on a smaller phone screen. The graphics have been optimized for Android and the animations make you feel like you are in the game, absorbing every bone-crushing tackle. And all 32 teams with real life rosters are represented in the game. Be the "General Manager" by making trades, or be the coach and put together a winning playbook (no, not the BlackBerry PlayBook). The game allows you to track stats and see how effective your players are.
During the game, you can control both sides of the ball. Total Defense Control (TDC) lets you pause the game and move your defensive players in position to make that hard hit to jar the football loose, or make a pick and stop a long drive. Action Control Time (ACT) lets you do the same thing with your offense and allows the ball handler to jive, spin, and juke. Draw up your own routes for passing, running and defense. You can even call an audible at the line.
Finally, Madden NFL 12 allows you to play exhibition games, or replay the 2010-2011 NFL season in season mode. If a 16 game schedule is too long, you can reply just the playoffs if you want. Regardless, it all becomes available to you at no cost starting Saturday, thanks to Verizon. By the way, Verizon's online ad for the game mentions VCAST which means you might need to download the VCAST app store before loading up the game. Remember, this freebie is for Verizon's Android customers only.
We just spoke with a Verizon rep who informed us that the Madden NFL 12 game is only free to those Android users paying $10 per month for VCAST services. If you were able to download the game for free without being a VCAST,subscriber, let us know!

FYI: Bionic and Thunderbolt NOT supported! This is a scam to get you to use VCAST as you can only get the game through VCAST, but most phones won't be able to download it. Verizon doesn't inform you of this until you have already set up a VCAST account. Complete BS!!!

I never played mobile Madden before. It sounds more like directing the plays than actually carrying them out.

you have to have VCAST on your phone. the link i clicked said i could get vcast, but this just seems like a ploy for verizon to get more bloatware on my droid X. what a bunch of jerks.

Typical Verizon. Attempt to do something big and screw up, annoying the customers. What a bunch of idiots.

I have a Droid X and i dont think i paid for vcast. i didnt see anything saying i would pay. all you need to have installed is the vcast app market. should say App on your app screen if you are looking for it. doesnt say vcast.
