@ #1 - TL:DR

On topic that's a really tough list, especially the points online achievements unless you can find someone to boost with.

Will have to wait for this to come down in price first I'd say

Brutal list. So sick of EA Sports and their online achievements. I have absolutely no desire to play online games. I have played maybe 10-15 ever, and that is not just with Madden, that is with every EA or 2K sports game combined. Frustrating.

@5 And to make things worse, there's a Kinect achievement too. "Smart Mouth." Terrible for those who don't have Kinects. Hearts out to you guys.

I'll just take my HDD or download my profile onto a friend's Xbox, and use his Kinect to get the achievement.

@#1 - Congrats!

Everybody has been complaining for years that the Madden achievements are too simple with no thought to them. Then, when EA decides to change everything up and give us new achievements, everyone complains. Is there no pleasing you?

BTW, I hate MUT. I hate Kinect and online as well. But you can't fault the developer for actually giving us different achievements, can you? While this isn't Ninja Gaiden II or Dark Souls, I welcome something a little more challenging than "complete a 50 yard pass", "stay in the pocket for 10 seconds" or "kick a 60 yard field goal". You aren't achieving anything when you do those (especially when you can adjust sliders or play with two controllers to make easier). While I also hate luck-based achievements (those should be outlawed), ones that I actually have to work for I don't mind.

These achievements are not difficult by any means, just a little time consuming. You can boost the online ones with someone, so why complain there? Of course, you'll have to do them quickly if you've rented the game, and online can be spotty. For the Kinect one, it seems that most of us know someone with a Kinect, so while that achievement is a bit of an inconvenience, it’s certainly doable. If not, oh erll. Are you not going to get the game because of one 25 point achievement? The MUT ones... there's only four of them, and except for the 85 rated team, the other three are simple. The challenging ones will be the created player ones, but I’m sure someone will figure out a way to get those easily as well.

I’m all for the different achievements. Not since 2007 has there really been a drastic change in them. While I do enjoy an easy gamerscore, I don’t mind working for these. While I would love to get 100% in this (as I have with every other Madden and NCAA Football), I welcome any points I can get.

Also, I have always had real problems playing online in Madden, always seem to get D/c midway through a game - so gave up. Hope you don't loose point for getting beaten otherwise its going to be a real pain to get to 600 pts.

I thought achievement that required you to buy something that did not come with the game weren't allowed. Remember Fable 2 and the Fable XBLA game, they had to change it so that you can get it without both games.

Just a bunch of Steeler haters...Everybody gets one...He'll NEVER do that again.. Just a load of crap..Why not have an ach that says knock Tebow out of the game with a season ending injury with James Harrison? Now THAT would be an achievement!!!!

I'm not here to complain about the achievements being hard...I'm here to say that they are just plain stupid. The majority of them are tied to modes I won't even touch, and there's no way I'm playing career mode in that many positions. If the game is good I'll get it since I don't play for achievements anymore, but for those who do this is the worst list of all time. It's basically farming quests in a football video game.

The defensive player ones should be easy. Just turn off offsides and get a crap ton of sacks. The TE and WR ones will be the toughest, IMO. What I don't like is that you have to use a created player. Why can't I use RG3 or Trent Richardson to get the achievements?! I get not wanting to give the player a leg up with someone's stats, but at least let me use a rookie.

hahahaha geez Xbox 360 has really made all you kids who are like that so pathetic at life, you will not go to far in life if your worried about stupid meaningless shit like getting a certain percentage on your games.

why does it matter if its 100%? has ANYONE EVER got a Trophy or Money or some sort of Gift because you got 100% Achievements on a VIDEO GAME? like really get a grip of reality.

My only complaint was that I had to create a player for some of the achievements. I don't generally like to create players.

@#1 too funny.

But seriously... Madden has been a joke for the last 11-12 years. cheeves aside... which i never played madden for anyway. So sick of this dumb franchise and its mediocre-ness. The day Madden can actually replicate stats such as tackles, game scores and balance the run /passing game with out having to go in and jack with all the sliders will be the day I buy the next in the series.

Also I am really annoyed by the fact you have to buy a stupid $150 periph' to get one achievement. When will xbox realize that motion gaming is a gimmick? That no one, accept fat little five year olds who have outdoor alllergies wants to play.

@51 If your reason for not playing Madden is that you need to adjust the sliders to fit your abilities, how do you play any game? I don't remember the last time I played a game that didn't have various difficulty settings. I don't know about 2012, but Madden 11 had a toggle setting where the sliders adjusted automatically to your skills.

Arguably one of the worst achievements list I've seen in some time. Online grinding achievements, more MUT crap, 2 Tebow achievemnts, and a Kinect achievement. I was on the fence about this game, but this definetly pushed me into the no longer a purchase category.

@#47 - Where do you see two Kinect achievements? Are you talking about “You're In the Game”?

@#54 - No one said you had to get all the achievements. MUT - 3 of the 4 are relatively easy. Online - find a boosting partner. Kinect - buy a Kinect or STFU. Tebow - where do you see a second one?

I say again, people complain that the achievements are too easy in previous years, and when they finally give us some different, somewhat challenging achievements, people complain about that. You don't like it, don't play it. I think it's kind of stupid for someone not to play a game because some achievements are difficult to unlock. Ever hear of playing a game for the fun of it? Completionists piss me off. Bunch of babies…

Well I guess thats 1 way to make sure people buy your game new or buy that shitty online pass, huh EA? Oh well I'm still gonna get this I'm a big NFL fan since 2K can't make them anymore I have to settle for EA. I was thinking to myself the other day that I was gonna start playing Madden online.

But on the plus side at least with all theses carrer achievements It will take me a lot longer to complete this game not in a week or less then I don't ever play it again. I'm just dreading the game where I have to go to overtime on purpose and use Tim Tebow and throw a touchdown pass on the 1st play.

Overall this list is ok I'm just disappointed that almost half seem to be online. Watch it not count towards your achievement if the person your playing against quits in the middle of the game. Happy trying to boost everyone. Is it even possible to boost in ranked matches?
