Re: Madden 2007 Reviews

I just got my copy, and so far i'm pleased with it. Making Superstar Mode so that you can only control your player is pretty awesome. But my question is, isn't there a way you can make it so you only control your player, and that when his position isn't on the field he watches from the sidelines? I don't know where to change it so i only play when I'm on the field.

Re: Madden 2007 Reviews

in the game options there's a choice of normal-coach-player mode for playing the games.

Re: Madden 2007 Reviews

nvm. I found out how to change it, you have to go into the menu during a game and press L1 or R1.

you cannot, i repeat, * CANNOT wear whites at home *. there's no all-white uniform (to be sold on Xbox Live Marketplace at a later date; no i'm not kidding) and even if you specifically choose AWAY uniforms at home, the skins come out in Darks.

know what team EA is aware wears whites at home? yes thats right, the cowcunts.

the animations have been smoothed out and added to. Portis feels like the electryifing running back he is. i'm a perennial Madden hater, but they should be applauded for how they handled the movement/animations of the players.

that said, the FIELDS LOOK LIKE ASS. yeah they get progressively chewed up as the game goes on, but the texture itself looks extremely Genesis era. the 'grass' is very low-fi zoomed out, day-glo green and it repeats in true 8-bit style.

yeah, i'm a big visuals/graphics guy. its supposed to be 'next-gen' after all.

Skins playbooks are all too familiar. although, there IS a SHOTGUN formation now.

the Redskins 'wallpaper' in the 360 menus is a shot of Ladell Betts? whatever, EA finally paid attention to my favorite part of the actual game (running) so it's a solid 'improvement' considering EA's motivations. yeah Madden is still saying the exact same things from the 90s...
The grass looks awesome on HDTV. Are you playing on a HDTV?

Re: Madden 2007 Reviews

Initially, I wasn't too impressed with the game other than the 'Skins screensaver at the main menu and the new music. Four days later, I'm liking it a lot. It's fun blocking and using the highlight stick with Portis and Duckett (Use it wiwth Moss too after the catch! It's wicked!) For those of you bickering of '07 having last year's graphics, it's probably time to consider upgrading to 360 or PS3.

Notes:

Go ahead and change Cooley's position to TE. His rating will still be pretty high >90.

Kicking is a lot easier, not that I wanted it to be. Can you turn off the 'help' button when you press it accidently. The right thumbstick isn't too sensitive to slicing kicks/punts wide like some favorite golf games (I'm an Outlaw junkie).

We've been using KC's playbook since Saunders came aboad and lo! Same playbook from last year. Herm Edwards is using KC's playbook so don't be too mad.

You'd think 'JGibbs' defense would feature some of the more exotic blitzes since we don't have a lot of formations.

I'd recommend serious Maddenholics to buy a 360 but, EA continues to kiss Sony's ass so wait for the PS3 and it's improved graphics w/o freeze frames. A/V guys should already be familiar with the PS3 being a HD DVD player with HDMI 1.3.

Roger McIntosh is rated higher OVR than D'Qwell Jackson.

yeah, HD. i dont know, i liked the grass less "detailed" then. it's taken a big step in the computer/pixel direction then the tv/photographic direction. it's less "detailed" in real life is my point.

oh, and i should fix an earlier post. you CAN wear whites at Fedex on the 360 version, you have to pick HOME not away. may depend on who you're playing..

Re: Madden 2007 Reviews

the freezing on ps2 is irritating, the graphics is the same as last year
the owners mode is downgraded, and i hate it

ea gets the profit, the gamers lost this one this year
the lead blocking is very hard and too much to be desired

I am lucky since I still kept my madden 05 collectors edition
and i think its the best released ever as of now
