The only thing that bothers me is that offensive linemen in APF 2K8 don't have nearly as much impact as defensive linemen.

For some fun, try rebuilding the 1991 Eagles:

DE - Reggie White
DT - Jerome Brown
DT - Mike Golic
DE - Clyde Simmons

That group will dominate games for you.

If anyone wants a 1991 Eagles uniform code, just let me know and I'll track down the ones I made.

Here's my Power Pass Rush team of Doleman and Millard.

It brings a tear to my eye, watching these guys just blow apart a generic OL.

If 'the other game' had guys like Dwight Freeney, Jared Allen, Julius Peppers, play like themselves..it would instantly be much more realistic, just by doing that alone.

Re: This game is good!!!

I love the feeling you get in APF 2K8 when the other team is facing 3rd and long and you know they are already punting.

Why?

Your pass rushers will get there before deep, downfield routes have time to develop.

That part of football is completely absent from EA Tiburon games.

Maybe 1 out of 10 times in Madden, you might get a sack with a 4-man rush because some O-lineman glitched out and let his man in free to the QB.

But a fierce front-four in APF 2K8 will either sack the QB, force him to scramble and throw on the run, or force a "pressure" that causes the pass to sail.

Once you do sack the QB a few times, he gets "rattled" if he doesn't have the Tough as Nails attribute and starts to make a lot of wild throws on his own, even without pressure.

Only way to do it in madden is to control the DLs manually, but then leaves you to pull your hair out over the hook and deep zones

This is exactly right. It's cool to have those OL/DL matchups actually exist! I remember having a legend OT at times and how much that allowed me to dictate the game. He'd always handle being singled up and that allowed double teams elsewhere.

I think what really stands out is that in order to convert 3rd and long against a competent opponent, you have to actually go above and beyond to make an exceptional play. In the other game you can gain 20 yards without much effort.

Re: This game is good!!!

3rd and long in Madden is a situation I dread as a defense because I know how easy it is to complete downfield passes.

I actually prefer 3rd and short as a defense because it's easier to defend the short routes in that game.

hahaha...such an odd way of thinking of it.

That reminds me of what I have always said about Madden.

I like this year's game, its really fun IMO...but it requires counterintuitive football thinking at times.

This game is a masterpiece. I'm just getting back into it. Just destroyed by an Archie Manning lead team 10-34. 2-2 on the season. No two games will be the same.
