As expected and as we mentioned yesterday, the latest installment of the epic Madden NFL series has launched its iPad and iPhone versions today. Madden NFL 11 for iPad is the title you’ll be looking for to run on your favorite Appl-y, tablet-y device.
I have not tried the app as yet, so I’ll just share some of its App Store description after the break …

It does sound quite good, but it’s been a while since I’ve tried out a Madden game and I’m afraid I’d get blown out in every game. I’m not sure yet whether being on the wrong end of a can of whoop ass is worth $12.99 to me.
If you’ve given it a go, let us know what you think in the comments.
You can find Madden NFL 11 for iPad in the App Store now, priced at $12.99.
