Yeah I'm on the 360. I haven't played NCAA '07 so I can't compare it, but I did have Madden '07 and this is 100% better than that.

Matty who do you play with?

Re: Madden and NCAA

I'm struggling with passing right now, mainly because of just trying to adjust to the tighter coverages. Guys just don't get open very easily and I haven't been able to hit much deep stuff. I think my completion % is pretty good but I think I've only got 1 TD pass vs. 4 INTs after 4 games.

Re: Madden and NCAA

You know what I've had big problems with so far? Kicking. I've missed a couple of PATs as well as FGs. It's tough to hit it straight. I'm always pushing kicks to the right. The kicking is definitely trickier this year.

With ND what you will want to do it run a 2 back set offense. Use your Tight End like a Tony Gonzalez, get him on corner and flat routes. With your recievers, screen passes are your best friend right now with the inexperience of your QB's. Your top reciever is only 168 pounds so refrain from going over the middle too much, But your TE is your big play man in this offense a steady dose of him and the use of those 2 RB's and you should find very good success.

It is because of your kicker's low accuracy and awarness ratings.

Re: Madden and NCAA

i bought it and im hooked. I started a legend game with a RB and got a 5 star rating in high school and went to Marshall...

I won a starting job before the first game and we crushed miami in the season opener...


then i didn't save. so this morning I tried to do it again, but didn't do as well in high school and chose Louisville over Marshall, but its harder to jump up in the lineup because you have to practice against their D, which is freaking amazing... they're holding everyone to less than 60 yds on the ground and pitched 2 straight shutouts in the first 2 games, so I have yet to get a start, even though I've scored several tds in mop up time in the fourth quarter..

I have like 10 carries for 189 yards and 5 tds in 2 games.. and im 3rd string because I cant run on the Cards D in practice...

Re: Madden and NCAA

If Madden is good, it's the kind of game I'll play all year. Unfortunately it's been a few years since Madden has been any good.

EB Games is offering a $30 credit towards Madden if you trade in NCAA 2008 towards it, but what if Madden blows? Not sure if I want to take that chance.
