Maxium Tackling

I'm not completely sure I understand this . . . when I go to tackle a player I always hit the tackle button (? square on PS2) but supposedly there is a difference in how you hit this button and whether your player does a dive vs wrapup? i'm not completely sure I understand this, any help would be appreciated.

Charge up with X then tackle with square. That would make sense to me if that was the maximum tackle.

Re: Maxium Tackling

ok well i have it on XBOX but i will help you out here:

there are two different tackles you can get out of pressing X (square for ps2). if you just press the tackle button (or tap it), you get a HIT tackle. a hit tackle is when they dive at the person and knock him down.

now, if you run up to the player and HOLD in the tackle button, your player performs a WRAP tackle, which is when your defenseman wraps his arms around the player and pulls or drags him down.

if you just run at the guy, without pressing any tackle button, your guy will still tackle him using either the hit or wrap tackle, but it is pretty risky unless you are about to sack a quarterback. most of the time, without actually pressing the tackle button, the guy on offense just runs past you.

hopes that helps,

Re: Maxium Tackling

Ah, so Maximum Tackling is like Maximum Passing, duh! I don't know how I missed that.

I kept thinking "Hit Stick", but I should have realized that it was more about controlling what tackle you want to use (dive or wrap) than a tackle that results in a shotgun blow to the chest.

Thanks.
