Re: Madden 10 reviews

Maurice Jones-Drew was tweeting that the new Madden sucked.

After reading that review, I'm kind of mixed about it. The gameplay sounds improved, but they still have a lot of work to do it seems.

Re: Madden 10 reviews

I'm excited for sure. I think I'll trust IGN's opinion on a video game over Jones-Drew any day.

Re: Madden 10 reviews

I preordered it at Gamestop last Friday and I've been playing the demo all week long. I'm loving it. I struggled early on but I've been getting back into the flow of things and it's been getting better for me since. Playing the demo has gotten me psyched for next Friday, I can't wait to start up franchise mode again and really get down to business. Pretty much the only thing I'm not excited about after reading IGN's review is the NFLN style presentation with the spotty commentary from the cast in the game, but it's not a big deal because i plan on turning that off anyways. It's improved leaps and bounds from the last time I played Madden a couple years ago and that's good enough for me.

Wow that's a good deal. Unfortunately for me my OCD doesn't allow me to wait after the release date.

Re: Madden 10 reviews

I hadn't been buying into the hype until this week as I've had more time to get acquainted to the demo. It's amazing how well they've made this game and for the first time in a while I think they've succeded in backing up all the hype. The cutscenes alone are amazing and the presentation is at the very least going to set the bar for sports games though weather other games follow suit we'll see.

One thing I like is how they seemed to have finally fixed the passing game. Defenders don't seem to make unrealistic swats anymore. I think the best part is that they now seem to finally have incorporated proper over the shoulder passes. Before you had to rely on the rocket catch in 08 (which I didn't play). Then they made the rocket catch useless in 09 and for a while it seemed like only Plaxico was able to catch a deep ball.

I must admit I still have some reservations about the new rating system especially considering how much time I've spent with FIFA 09 and Cristiano Ronaldo (for those who don't know Ronaldo is extremely difficult to stop and he's easily the most abused player in the game) but now those reservations are slowly eroding away. I think it clicked for me when I was playing with Brandon Jacobs and after I got by a linebacker, thanks to the help of Chris Snee, I was able to run over a safety. I don't think that would have happened on All-Pro in previous installments. Instead I would have gotten a forward lean, shoe string tackle. At that point I realized the ratings spread made a lot more sense. However weather or not everyone insist on using Manning or Brady 90% of the time during online play has yet to be seen.

The funny thing though is people have been complaining forever about Madden and how great 2K5 was but the funny thing is I see a huge amount of 2K5 in this game (keep in mind I still hold a slight grudge against EA for their exclusivity agreement). I still think though that NHL 10 will take the crown for best sports game but this game is possibly going to go down as one of the best football games ever made. Either way I'm pre-ordering this game tomorrow so I can play a game with 5 minute quarters instead of 1 minute quarters.

Same here, but I don't think that I am going to be able to pick it up until tomorrow. I am going to the Orioles game tonight.

Re: Madden 10 reviews

Walked into Wal Mart today around 6am and had no problems getting a copy. Managed to get a game in at lunch and I'm very impressed with the graphics. I think the player models could be better. Zorn doesn't look like Zorn and Tony Romo is just plain goofy looking. (Maybe it is right on) Boy does Haynesworth tear up the line though. I cant wait to get home tonight.
