Anyone else hate Madden '10?

I used to love drafting players, developing them, and simming the games. Maybe I'm blind, but this is no longer an option on franchise mode. I really don't find playing matches all that fun. I find some plays that work well and exploit them. I like developing players and trying to sim the super bowl. Any idea why they got rid of that part of the game? If people didn't want to, they didn't have to -- but being able to added to the game for me.

Yes, you are blind.

Franchise mode is still there and you can still sim.

Re: Anyone else hate Madden '10?

I wasn't very clear. I know franchise mode is there, and I know I can still sim. But they got rid of player development via mini-games. That's what I miss.

Re: Anyone else hate Madden '10?

Yeah I agree about getting rid of player development via mini-games. I used to ball in those and I would always pick young depth that would gradually make an impact in games. Plus the player progression frustrates the hell out of me, like if I had a guy that had a breakout season his ratings wouldn't even improve that much. That's the main reason why I haven't played Madden hardly, that and how much I love COD:MW2.

Re: Anyone else hate Madden '10?

I tried the superstar mode. I went through the process twice. Got drafted by the Cowboys, twice (different positions) and shut off my 360 in rage both times.

Re: Anyone else hate Madden '10?

My relationship with Madden is the same every year:

August - OMG, this year is SO much better than last year. YES! This game is sweet!
September - Just finished my second franchise season, the computer is getting a little too easy to beat now that I've figured out its tricks. Might have to take my game online soon.
October - Online is the same goofy crap it's always been, I'm gonna go back to franchise.
November - I've got the difficulty jacked way up and I'm still beating the computer easily. This game is not as realistic as it seemed in August. Still pretty fun though.
December - This game sucks. Can't wait for next year.

It's been like this since my Genesis days.

Well nemo. I never played the games, so I just loved teambuilding. Too bad.

Re: Anyone else hate Madden '10?

This is exactly why the NFL pissed up when they signed the rights only to EA sports where is the incentive to put out a quality product each year when they are the only ones by law that can do it...

Re: Anyone else hate Madden '10?

This is the first Madden in years that I'm still playing this long after it came out.

Re: Anyone else hate Madden '10?

The gameplay, itself, is leaps and bounds over 09.

I do get bored of it. I prefer COD or FIFA(also EA but less frustrating IMO) generally though.

Hooskins, I hear FIFA is game of the year. I just ordered Bayonetta but I'm thinking about picking up FIFA too. Any thoughts?

I mean its selling pretty well. I love it personally, but I have always liked FIFA videogames and soccer in general (waiting for the hypernationalists to say its boring and its unAmerican.....).

Its a fun game and online is great. I also had FIFA 09 and played 08, so it was easy for me to play 2010 and play it well. It can be frustrating, for me at least, if I am not successful at videogames. If you are a first timer for FIFA, I would suggest read some tutorials online and you will pick it up. It may take a bit, but its fun either way. Online they will match you will someone based on your skill level, and you can play unranked too.

Main thing is you need patience, just like Madden I suppose. Cant just turbo down the field and pass to the obvious people. Gotta mix it up. Also defending can be a bit hard.
