Re: NFL Head Coach to be released Tuesday, 6/20

could be interesting.
But I hate EASports. Seriously, I can't believe how bad they treat there customers. Madded 360 was garbage. they sold an incomplete game. Fifa 2006 was garbage, another incomplete game Etc. I will buy the next madden because its the only licensed footbal game. but i will still try to boycot EAsports.

I agree with you. I dislike the exclusive rights to sports games, more practically, it creates a monopoly over the football gaming business. Now they can license some crap and put the name Madden on it and I will still buy it. At least its not a bad game, and head coach looks really sweet.

Re: NFL Head Coach to be released Tuesday, 6/20

You can't just blame EA for the exclusive license. They coughed up the cash and the NFL took it.

I was really disappointed in Madden '06. I thought NCAA '06 was a far better football game. I really hope they step it up this year.

As far as this new coaching sim, it sounds like it could be interesting. Probably worth a rent to try it out at least.

I haven't played video games in a while. My xbox is at my friends house and has been there for a while. Maybe I'll get this one.

Re: NFL Head Coach to be released Tuesday, 6/20

madden 07 = you can throw blocks with linemen etc, better superstar mode, and the vision cone is turned off by default.

hopefully they decide to also fix a couple of the bugs while they're at it (progression was all screwed up, there are two cities called Washington DC (one where the skins start that sucks and one where they can move to that hass 10x the population and higher income, franchise freezing at the end of a season, etc etc)

Re: NFL Head Coach to be released Tuesday, 6/20

I've always preferred the college game to Madden...not sure why, i just like the gameplan better. I buy both each year (trading in the previous versions of course), and usually play the College game much much more.

Re: NFL Head Coach to be released Tuesday, 6/20

The only thing i dislike about madden is, even on All-Madden, the game becomes way too easy for me. I begin to realize what plays give me a very high precentage of completeing because the AI will do some pretty stupid stuff. QB Vision made me take one step back, but then i become good at that too so it was no trouble if my first route broke down.

Final point: i can play the game like made for about a few months, but after that, i can't because it becomes to easy. I wish they would be one step above All-Madden.

I thought the whole vision cone thing was just awful. Great concept in theory, but I just didn't enjoy it at all. I turned it off pretty quick.

its not a problem with all madden, its a problem with crap ai in general. take vick, and run for 800 yards a game every time. even a speed 80 qb can get 400 a game without any trouble (15min quarters, w/ sped up play clock). then just rush your SS while either all out blitzing or all out cover and you'll always hold the other team to negative yards.

Their are just certain things that madden lets you do that the AI just doesn't get. Run straight back with any QB about 10 yards and you'll never get sacked. Take a scrambling QB and run left and right until your OL pickup the guys trying to get you, then dash right past them. The list is pretty much endless.

Not to wax philosophical about video game design, but AI is the problem with most games today. The graphics have gotten to the point where we're just a few years from photorealism. Everyone is totally focused on graphics and eye candy but completely miss whether the game is good or not, or whether the AI is good or not.

I'm an avid PC gamer and in the past two years I've played nothing but online, multiplayer games like Battlefield 2. Once you play in an arena with 63 other humans, all actively thinking, plotting, planning and adjusting to the changing battle, Artificial Intelligence as competition just seems pathetic.

I got a couple of PC games recently where I played the AI - got bored after a few hours. There's just no challenge in playing a computer. Human vs. Human is where it's at.
