New Madden

I just bought Madden 2006 today and it is so hard. I try to look at my receivers with that vision crap and I have absolutely no time to do it. I get sacked so much and throw a million interceptions and i suck at defense too. I was amazing ot '05....i guess I just have to get used to this one. Right now I suck.

Re: New Madden

I've turned off the vision cones for now. The overall AI is really jacked up this year as it is. I'm going to keep trying the vision cones in practice mode but I agree it's really hard.

Re: New Madden

I just picked it up on my lunch break. Can't wait to play it when I get home. After the Angels vs. Athletics game that is. Go Halos.

I Hope I get some sleep tonight.

Re: New Madden

i was top 500(at a time when there were like 100000 people) in the 05 on xbox and i promise i didn't cheat, i just can't get this one, i have gone 3-1 but 1 win was not really a win. I was playing a dallas fan and he was just playing with me at the end of the game being a d-bag he was trying to get some more points, i encouraged it because i was hoping for a turnover. My wish came true, he rolled out and soon daniels caught up to him, as he did he was forced to throw it and harris picked it off around my 20, i ran it back about 80 yards for the game winning touchdown with the clock at 0.
Otherwise i just learned how to throw the dam ball. I didn't know that you click R then the reciever to lock on the person, i was just wielding that damn cone side to side trying to catch the receivers and hitting air.
I haven't tried it in a game yet but i hope it works because i have been running it like a mofo. Gibbs book is really hard and the last game i tried with Mike Tice's book. It worked well because it has nice shotguns and 5 wides meant for speed. To bad i completed only 4 passes that game

Re: New Madden

I'm just about to give up on the vision passing.

There's just too much to do to throw a damn pass, it's really frustrating.

Seems like they could have made it a little easier somehow.

Re: New Madden

Its sad my first few games I felt like I was running Steve Spurriers offense with all the sacks I been taking, hard to bust runs out D plugs hole like mad, I'm figuring out that the Slide Blocking thing actually helps managed a 2.5 rushing avg. up from 1.5 Lol could be a long year!

Re: New Madden

Yeah the pass rush is insane, and with the new vision passing makes it feel even worse.

I've gotta work on moving the protections too.

Re: New Madden

The passing windows are hard to get used to, and it doesn't help that Ramsey's cone is so small. What I do like is the running game, easier to run up the middle as lineman actually hold their blocks and the fullback doesn't run past linebackers as much anymore.

Re: New Madden

the vision is hard as sh*t. when i do franchise most of the redskins go down over a few seasons. campbell cant go up fo rme he just keeps going down. rogers will get up to like an 84 but then go back down. the progression in this new game is weird. i got to season 4 or 5 by simulating and there were like 20 90's left in the game

Re: New Madden

around my sixth game i got it, it is a lot of fun trying to do it. It just needs some practice and as of right now no one is amazing at it. It is hard to move the cone but for xbox by pushing R plus the receiver then just the receiver the cone will move to the player and then throw it. It takes an extra half a second to push R and the receiver but that is what is new about it. One thing is on Defense we can see where the QB is looking making it even harder to adjust to the new system for offense

Re: New Madden

guys the vision can make or break you in the passing game. The thing I like the most about it is that if you want to send one of your speedsters on a go route, you don't have to lob it up in the air to put it over their shoulder. You can fling the ball hard so that they don't have to wait for it and still place it in front of your man. And if the defender is in front you can hit them in the feet.

The running game is awesome because all the linemen actually block like they should, and a defense will bite on situational trickerey. I remember in the old madden it seemed like if you lined up in a 4 wide set on 3rd and 8 and picked a draw play they would always stack the box. The AI is more realistic. I've also noticed that you cant maul recievers while their on their routes anymore. This should make things a lot more interesting.

I can't wait to play it online, but that'll probably be a few days.

As far as player progression goes you can practice to make them better. Go to gameplan and practice the 3 situations and get the most points possible and your stuff will go up.
