    Re: Madden: initial thoughts.



    Hey guys, got absent minded and forgot to reserve so i'll have to wait till payday 2maro to get it. Couple questions, Is the Ravens playbook the same? How are the new players on our team?

    Re: Madden: initial thoughts.

    This is the first Madden I picked up in at least 5 years. I'm pretty impressed so far. There's still some of the same issues from the last time I played, but the game is definitely headed in the right direction.

    Also Torrey Smith is an absolute beast in this game.

So, it's not set in stone and it may be another year or two before EA is able toget another exclusive rights deal.


    I will say though that as I am playing, the ratings almost don't even matter so much because of the game play. I started a franchise and when you play well you get XP (experience points), which you can use to bump up the stats of that player periodically throughout the season. So, for example, if Ray Rice's speed rating I think is a 91 or 92 and you have a couple of good games with him you could probably bump it up to a 93 or 94 by the end of the season. Frankly, I like that because it adds another element of trying to put your young players out there and get them involved in game plans and experience. I thought they rated KO extremely low.
    This is one feature I do like. I hope 2K does get another shot, I'd like to see what they can bring, because their NBA is crazy.

    Yea, their NBA game is hands down the best one out there. That alone should scare the shite out of EA regarding Madden, because you know that 2K would kill it with a football game.

    Or Red Dead Redemption. Rockstar absolutely kills it in that department.

    I'm not sure what it is about this game, but it's just not enjoyable. It's frustrating, because I really want to like it. I just cant find myself to want to sit down and play it for an extended period of time like I normally do.

    I haven't put this game in my PS3 for over a month. It's an unrealistic and boring game IMO.

    It's the same thing every year with Madden. They promote the "new features", but don't fix the issues that have plagued this game for years.
