Re: The Tackling in Madden 15 is ATROCIOUS!

As far as the corners leveling running backs and what not, all EA ever does is make high impact arcady games. NHL is the same way with endless huge hits and fights that you have no control over. I don't see that changing any time soon.

The one thing I am afraid of with defense being the focus is that every defense will be an "auto hit-stick", much like SF and SEA were in 25. EA needs to realize that most tackles in the NFL are not huge hits, but high percentage tackles. Not only that, but man coverage will probably be even more overpowered and the AI on defense will be even more psychic than years past.

A new video from Simfbcritic on reach tackles.

Even though it's in the video thread, I thought it was a good place to put it in here, too.

Sim explains this is Phase 1, phase 2 and 3 will be coming down the road.

Phase 1 of something again? And down the road as in "years" down the road? I just don't understand what's in it for some of these guys to sell us marketing pitches.

IMO, diverse methods of tacking isn't something that should be phased into a game no more than diverse throwing styles, catching types or running types.

That should just be in a football game in 2014 on "4th gen" consoles.

I don't know how many times you can beat a dead horse but I'll continue until somehow someone in EA sports gets it. Why does a game 10 years ago have better gang tackling and better WR/DB interactions then the current Madden 2015??????? On newer Powerful consoles??!! Why?? We are not talking about 2 years, or even 5 years, we are talking about 10 years!! A decade for goodness sake!! How long does it take for them to catch up?? It's mind boggling..
For comparison...

10 year old game ran on...
Original Xbox: 733MHz Pentium 3 single-core CPU with 64MB DDR RAM

New Madden runs on...
PS4: 1.6GHz x86-64 octo-core CPU with 256MB DDR3 RAM and 8GB DDR5 RAM

should be enough power and memory in the PS4 to do absolutely anything animation-wise

I think what Sim was trying to say, in a interview last fall with Clint, I asked a question that Rex answered.

I asked if they introduce, for example True Sense 1.0 year one, will they abandon it the next year and remove it down the line, like they've done in the past. Rex's response was very clear, no, those days are gone. We will continue to work on blocking, player sense, physics, etc.... and not ditch those elements and remove them.

Their plan/priorities are simply not inline with what some of us want. They're baby stepping too many facets instead of blowing out areas I feel should have priority.

I agree, but not much anyone can do with the way they prioritize and implement features in the game.
