    Re: Madden '07?



    Jon, I agree about the running game. I played my friend online and watched in horror as LT shook initial tackles from Ngata and Trevor Pryce like it was nothing. If I called a safety blitz Ed Reed would miss the tackle as well. It was a guaranteed 5 yard gain minimum on practically every play.

    Another guy I played online used Lamont Jordan shredded my defense for 180 yards.

    I also can't seem to get the bench press or 40 yard dash down. They need to make it more like Fight Night. When you train in Fight Night to get your guys better its hard at first but doable once you get it down. The bench press flat out doesn't work (I have gotten one and follow the instructions) and the 60 yard dash is hard to get anything better than a 5 second run.

    Also in franchise mode I think there is some kind of glitch with play calling. I intercepted a ball with Samari Rolle and ran it back for a TD. I kicked off, they started at their own 30, then proceeded to call the exact same play. I intercepted it again, ran it back again for a TD. Believe it or not, it happened for a third time on the next series! So I am thinking it had to be some kind of glitch. Sure as hell they threw the same play for a 4th time in a row but I dropped the INT. I beat the Chargers 88-10.

    So yea, I thought EA would get a lot of things straightened out in this version after the '06 debacle but it doesn't look like thats the case.

    Re: Madden '07?

    I have been a Madden fan since 2000 and I was looking forward to this years game after taking a break and skipping last years version. However after all these complaints and the lackluster reviews, I just don't know if I want to shell out for a game that isn't really better than the one I bought 2 years ago.

    What I'm actually thinking about doing is buying 2k5 (the alleged pinnacle of video game football) and updating the rosters manually to look like they currently do. All of the Madden roster info is available online and someone on the YBR forum said it took him about 6 hours to trade players and create rounds 1-3 of the last 2 drafts (with exceptions for break out stars). I wanted a copy of his save but unfortunatly he is on Xbox and I'm PS2.

    I figure even if it takes me a whole weekend, when I'm done I'll have the best football game out there. This weekend is out of the question, but I think I may sacrifice next weekend for this.

    I've got my copy. Its really not very impressive after playing NCAA, which is excellent IMO. Wayyyy too much slowdown. Running game is a lot of fun with the new system though.

    I've always had a problem stopping the run with the Ravens in the past, but this year it seems like everyone is getting 5-6 yards per carry. I've even switched Trevor Pryce to DT with Ngata and have Green as my DE and that seems to work a little better online, but everytime I make that switch I have to Download a new roster before playing my next game online.
    I love the graphics on the Xbox 360 and in HD looks even better.

    Great game overall.

    I'm VERY upset it is not widescreen.

    I can't seem to find how to make individual substituions, such as making Pryce a DT for nickle and dime packages, I can't seem to edit or create playbooks either.

    Also really important question as I traded for Michael Robinson... Where is the HB pass, I can't find it in ANYONE's playbook? anyone know, what team, and formation. thanks

    I got it for the PS3 it translates to widescreen very nicely on that. In general it does what I expected it to do. Although I have noticed a few RBs are near impossible to stop. My brother is a Chargers guy so I have to suffer the insanity of LT

    On another note I was playing Denver (season franchise mode) and I got an INT with Reed. Ran it back for the TD (as would be expected) and noticed he did the spread open arms thing like he was flying. It was pretty damn cool I thought. Ive been looking for other nifty trademark moves by players. Anyone notice any others?
