on offense ive really noticed that running the ball 3 or more times with CP will cause him to not have alot of acceleration in the latter carries. as it should be, in real life portis isnt going to have the same burst on his 4th or 5th straight carry as his first of a series.

go skins!!

Re: Madden 10 reviews

the Skins offensive ratings dropped bad after last year.

Portis should be a 94. hes a 93.

Moss... 86... hes a 1000 yard potential guy every season... he should be 88 at least.

Cooley should be a 93. Hes a 91. no sense for his ratings to drop.. whats the excuse lack of touchdown catches?

they didnt match my projections at all.

They changed the rating system, you can't really compare them to last year

Probably in SmootSmack's Madden '10, where he's the 2nd QB. LOL.

Re: Madden 10 reviews

Some new thoughts:

- It's funny but in setting the Redskins roster to the actual 53 man one announced recently I found out that I actually make the Redskins an 84 overall. Apparently getting rid of people makes the team better.

- The computer is adjusting way to fast to everything I do. It's to the point now where it feels like no ones ever open. Also I'm kind of pissed at how the DB's always seem to be able to predict when my recievers are going to run an out instead of an in and vice versa. It's like they start to break before my recievers do.

- I'm tired of the offensive line frequently becoming turn styles lately whenever I try and run the ball.

- I want Big Mike and Marcus Mason in the game.

- Marko Mitchell is awesome at this game

- Why does Devin Thomas have a higher catch rating then Malcolm Kelly?

- On Supersim there are way to many special teams touchdowns.

- They need to rework the placement of the timeout and challenge play options. I'm kind of a creature of habit so sometimes I'll go to try and select Supersim and accidently challenge the play then I'll overshoot coaching options and select timeout.

- They need to let you work on your substitution packages in the pause menu.

It's kind of funny how often you need to expalin this concept to people. I have a friend that's a Falcons fan and he freaked when he saw the ratings for the Falcons players. Took me a good 5 minutes to explain it and even then he thought it was bull shit.

Re: Madden 10 reviews

Anybody else think Devin Thomas got jobbed on his speed rating? I use him to return kickoffs (all pro) and there's been a few times now where he's caught from behind after breaking free for a big return.

Re: Madden 10 reviews

Tired of the cheesers already. Played this guy the other day who used Philly and of course he put in Vick and just scrambled all over the place. Luckily Vick's accuracy is pretty piss poor so he ended up getting picked off twice and missing a bunch of other throws pretty bad.

I know exactly how you feel. I have been countering it by mixing up the types of routes that I use. It also helps significantly to sub your recievers into different positions to get those defensive mismatches. It's fun to watch a LB try to cover Moss on a skinny post

Re: Madden 10 reviews

So I haven't really played this game until this last weekend. Overall, I like it a lot. I feel it is definitely a bit more realistic and tactical. With the right amount of tactics I was owning my buds, who all bought the game the night it came out.

I agree with others that people get fatigued/injured too often. This rate should be higher than it was in 09, but madden 10 made it too much. Also the fumble scrum is annoying.

Re: Madden 10 reviews

The first down cut screen is really getting annoying. It pops up way too often.

That scene along with the goaline cut screen.

You know what's funny, I have played Madden so much that I know that if the firstdown cut screen is from the point of view which is LEFT of the chain gang, it is a first down. If it is from the RIGHT it is just short. Basically there are two firstdown cut screens, and one is indicative of a first down and the other indicated you are short.

Check it out next time you guys play. lol.

Yup, took about 2-3 times of each before I figured that out. Plus it's usually pretty obvious before they even go to the cut screen. Sometimes you'll have it be a good yard or so and they still go to that, ugh it's so annoying. Wish you could skip it.

Another thing I wish you could skip is all the half time stuff.

Re: Madden 10 reviews

They need a speed mode, where it cuts out all of the cutscenes and halftime crap. Also, what length quarters does everyone else play? I usually stick with the default 5 but in the past, i've gone to 6 in order to get the stats to match up more correctly.

I generally play 6 or 7 minute quarters.
