Re: Madden '09 Info and Reviews

Madden iq sux. The test averaged out close to all pro except running the ball and pass d. For the record I'm a good runner, but instinctively preform the move I like instead of what they tell me to. I like it that way and don't wish to add a hesitation to my gameplay waiting for my opponent to tell me how to beat it.

I avg over 8 yds/carry against cpu and 3 online opponents yesterday, but passing was so much easier I was usually over 300yds in the air.

First game I beat cpu in avg game against cboys play it now style.

Moved to online

Second game I played a guy who had the steelers. I picked him off 3x (2x user picks, which almost never used to happen) and was up 28-3 in Q1 and he quit.

Third game guy plays with raiders. JC has 350yds through air, CP 90yds on the ground to his 178yds offense. I threw 3 picks, and he returned a kick after I made my field goal. I got beat 28-3.

The Madden IQ is a great idea in theory, but it clearly needs work. The drills are so easy that it doesn't give you an accurate idea of your skills at all.

So they're like mulligans?

Cool. No one should ever lose a game.

In recent years I totally gave up on clicking on my corners when the ball was in the air to try to make a play. But so far it seems in '09 you can actually make plays with your DBs. I'm really liking that.

Not so fast, just because you got a mulligan doesn't mean that your next attempt will be successfull. Plus you only get one mulligan per play. I prefer not to you them, but the play breakdowns are helpfull.

Exactly. I've been inconsistent in my games. I beat the Giants 13-10, Beat the saints 42-17, then I played the Cardinals and was down 21 to 0 and turned the game off after I threw my 4th pick in as many series.

Re: Madden '09 Info and Reviews

Anyone else notice santana moss sucks? he doesn't burn anyone, even if he's in the slot playing against a nickel cb running a streak in single coverage... dude's always got a step on him... and when I hit him in the hands he drops the ball .

I seriously don't think ive completed a pass to him since i bought the gd game. I've completed passes to sellers and even lorenzo alexander, but moss can't catch a cold. im gonna wind up trading him in my franchise

Re: Madden '09 Info and Reviews

the madden iq definitely isnt perfect as mentioned above. i got all-madden for passing in the test, yet in 2 games ive played ive thrown more ints than tds, and yet my skill either stays the same or goes up a little. doesnt make sense. the passing is what im struggling with the most

I've been burning people like crazy with SM and DT. Even Randle El has been pretty impressive. Didn't get too much out of Kelly yet... Anyone else notice that Colt Brennan is retardedly good.

I was about to say the same thing about Moss and Thomas. I've been lighting people up with them. I'm disappointed with Portis though. I have trouble getting any big carries.

On another note, did anyone else notice the players intoductions were gone and also Justin Tryon is spelled Tyron?

yeah, I MIGHT break a 10 yard run ONCE per game. I'm averaging something like only 60 yards rushing per game. Seems like the oline is getting blown up on just about every snap. I wonder if that has to do with the whole "my skill" thing? Unfortunately, I maxed out the meter on "Running Offense" in the skills test so the game is most likely making it friggin impossible to run.

That's because the game jacks up the difficulty to counteract whatever you're good at. So, if you get all madden for passing offense, when you play games it's going to be effing impossible to throw. At least, that's my theory...

I just turned the skill thing off and put it on pro and jacked the computer up 84-17. I should probably move up some.
