Re: Madden 10 reviews

it is funny the way peyton changes his plays before every single snap. i have not found a zone coverage that can keep him at bay. i go to press man coverage (dime - slots: man.cover 1.qb spy) blitz my lb and place him in the middle, blitz my fs and place him between the lt and the lg. and if there is a rb in the backfield, i select the defender who is assigned to him, and blitz off whichever side of manning he happens to be standing on, if he runs a pattern out of the backfield, i cover him - if not, i blitz manning. so i have my 4 down linemen rushing, my mlb rushing, my fs rushing, and depending on the rb, my ss rushing. leaving every single wr in single man coverage, but the pressure comes quick, so he has to let it go in no time. it doesn't work every time, but it works a hell of a lot better than the zone coverages, and is also stellar against the run.

i'm in year 3 of my franchise, my lineup looks like this.
qb - myself (ovr 94) / vick
rb - portis / r. bush / drafted player
fb - vickers / sellers
wr - calvin johnson / hester / r. bush (ovr 89 @ wr) / d thomas / drafted player
te - cooley / v davis / drafted player
lt - peters / can't remember
lg - drafted player (ovr 90) / drafted player
c - mack (ovr 90) / can't remember
rg - dockery / drafted player
rt - clady / drafted player

le - english (ovr 88) / jarmon
dt - ngata / haynesworth / can't remember / drafted player
re - merriman (ovr 99) / drafted player
lolb - orakpo (ovr 85) / lawson
mlb - willis / fletcher / drafted player
rolb - timmons (ovr 85) / drafted player
cb - asomugha / rodgers-cromartie / d. hall / carr / barnes
fs - merriweather / t. jackson
ss - landry (ovr 92) / moore

k - janikowski
p - can't remember (kpw 97)

kr - hester / bush
pr - hester / bush

Re: Madden 10 reviews

So I went back and played Madden 09, at a buds place who doesnt have the new one. All I can say is Madden 10 is so much better.

I know we said that 10 slowed the game down a lot, but going back to 09 I felt like everything was 8x in speed. It really wasn't fun to play.

Re: Madden 10 reviews

My only qualm with 10 is that they make AP way too freaking good. He breaks 1-2 tackles per run. Even if he is completely stuffed. It gets a bit unrealistic.

Re: Madden 10 reviews

The first down and TD cut screens continue to annoy the hell outta me. They simply pop up way too often.

Yeah you can practically take a piss break or grab a beer when they come on. It was cool at first but it slows the game down. I remember when they took the 1st down measurements out of the game for the same reasons many years ago. Now they brought them back, it's like "do you guys even remember why they were removed in the first place?" You should be able to either skip it or turn it off completely.

Re: Madden 10 reviews

I have lost several games because of those cut screens. They prevent you from spiking the ball!

I drove down field, was close to the first, got the first, and I was pressing/tapping the hell outta the spike button. It is stupid.

portis' contract is up at the end of this season, i'll probably resign him to a 1year deal w no bonus so i can trade him for picks. then i'll be able to trade for ap, i bet it'll take 3 1sts or 2 1sts 1 2nd.
