I hope you like the colour brown, because it’s the real star of this year’s Madden 12 cover art, both versions of the game looking more like a Gears of War map than something from a game played on bright green fields.

The regular edition of the game, featuring cover star Peyton Hillis, can’t help it. He plays for the Cleveland Browns. Who wear brown jerseys.

The game’s Ultimate Edition (which includes a hand-signed card from the cover athlete), however, is graced by former Rams RB Marshall Faulk, and in an effort to make him look all Hall of Famey, he’s been cast in Bronze. Well, he’s had an awful Photoshop filter applied on an embossed cover, but the intent is there.

This will be the second time Faulk has got himself on the cover of the game, having first appeared on Madden 03’s box art in 2002.

  • Dear god that bottom one is awful. Surely they would’ve had one person somewhere on the production sense that had a minuscule amount of creative eyes to see that it looks like a stain on a toilet bowl.

  • Well there’s a reason there called the CLEVELAND BROWNS. So mabye that explains why the cover would feature the color brown, just a hunch

  • Does anyone really care about this series anymore? They’ve released the same game for the 10th or the 11th time now… Get your head out of the sand if you think Madden is worth your or anyones time.

    • HELL YES they woud have stoped producing it a long time ago if it wasnt “worth the time” they have NHL–NBA–MLB–NASCAR–PGA TIGER WOODS–AND EVEN TENNIS. WE FOOTBALL FANS NEED OUR MADDEN— AND THE GAME IS PRETTY DAMN GOOD TOO.—-NOT TO EXCITED ABOUT THE COVER THOUGH (VICK SHOLD’VE WON)

  • I’m not a fan of the Madden Games (or sports games in general) but I am glad they did not use that Dog-Killer for the game Cover.
