I've seen many Android games that offer gorgeous screenshots in the Play Store that hardly reflect the visuals I encounter after downloading the title to my Nexus 7. That's not the case with EA Sports' newly-released UFC game. The press images were spot on. The fighters in this game are impressive, and fans are in for a visual treat.

Bringing impressive animation, smooth controls and a host of real NFL teams and players, this game promises to bring everything you love about EA's Madden line to the palm of your hand.
Madden NFL 12 also brings playbooks, stat tracking, and the ability to play through a 16-game season or seasonal playoffs. At $6.99, Madden 12 is a bit on the high-side, but at least it adds one more entry to Android's selection of quality games. Read More
