Very true. Loved that collision on the sideline. The second defender didn't just stand by which is great.

One thing that does bother is how the spin move is utilized as a juke move, and is more effective than than the juke move.

On that Gore stretch play to the right, he spins in the open field and it dazzles the AI defender (pretty sure it wasn't User controlled). Spin should be used as a breaktackle measure not as an avoid contact measure.

I love the block shedding by Aldon Smith. Pocket is not compressing but the pressure is there. If there is no pocket compression then we need some insta block shedding to at least hurry the QB of we cannot contain him fundamentally.

That toss play that ended outside left me a bit concerned because I did not see any edge defenders. The back got outside so quickly cause all the LB's seemed to crash the interior of the trench albeit there may have been a mid blitz called.

I am not seeing any heat-seeker tackles nor am I seeing any rediculous shoestring dives. The absense of these lazy tactics is making the tackle and run game look more organic albeit there is still work to be done to introduce more tackling interactions.

Overall, the game still plays like M25 for 360 but it does play noticably better. I am starting to warm up to the visuals but I am yet to see the D really standout in any way that screams, "this is the year of the D!" and that is the most underwhelming takeaway.

While EA may very well miss the mark on actually portraying a mean defensive style gauntlet game it does not takeaway from the fact that the game is improving but I am still deflated by the former point.

The D lacks the soul and it may be due in part to so much focus on making individual olays opposed to championship football that predicates itself on swarming to the ball and playing fundamental team defense.

Sherm did not look clutch in any way. P Willy made a great stop on the screen but the game is still fundamentally wide open for 1v1 user plays which is why it is still like M25 old gen at the core of gameplay.

One thing I have always hated about Madden is the lack of catch animations. Every receiver seems sure footed 95 percent of the time. Seeing a dive catch is like spotting a unicorn. I was playing APF 2k8 last night and the variety of catches in that game are ridiculous. There are even catches where receivers slide on their knees to make the reception. Receivers falling backwards off balance to adjust to the ball. That's just a small sample of the variety you can find in that game. Also, the illusion of line play in Madden is so frustrating. Watch the videos above of real NFL footage and show me one play where O-linemen simply turn forward looking down field once the defender they were blocking gets past them. Where's the pursuit and continuing to play through to regain their protection in case the qb steps up into the pocket or escapes? Simple o-line logic., where is it? It's been far too many years for these things to not be a given in Madden by now.

Okay...this video was better than the last 2 videos but with these same animations, the game is going to get boring very quickly.....but i enjoyed the video more...i dont know if it was more impressive or mentally we all have slowly lowered our standards again......That toss play still look to easy and may eventually be a cheese which is ironic cause that is the hardest play to run in the NFL.......the spin move was bad again!!....I dont have nothing to say about that.......Im glad i saw one but still on the fence that we only saw one 2 man tackle...this is football, gang tackling happens almost every down and last but not least, still no wow or no damn play/animation play...lets be honest, this could have been a 360/PS3 video..I still want next gen stuff!!!

No matter how you spin, no matter what "innovations" is included, Madden is still Madden. Same game through & through. I feel like Chris from Family Guy when referring to Kevin Costner "How does this guy keep getting work!?" Well if the sheep like it then Madden will continue to prevail....

Is it just me, or is the information on these upcoming games (Madden 15, NHL 15, NBA 2k15, NBA 15) even more scarce this year than last? A complained about lack of information last year and this year it feels worse in my opinion.

As far as the video is concerned there is nothing new I haven't seen except the pass from Kaep to Bolden. It looks like passing is more precise but of course I need to play it myself. So more precise passing for me is inconclusive..

The players do react to the plays, I saw Brock come off the bench and congratulate Gore on a nice run in a video. The crowd audio and models respond better and there's more atmosphere with the crowd overall. Coaches react more now too. They are still developing the Living Worlds feature. Hopefully they will get to where FIFA is with Living Worlds soon, their crowds are amazing.

Interesting you mentioned that because I just was talking with Markus about animations.

@jpdavis1982: @markusfrieske are you guys planning to capture a bunch of new animations for next year, were there a bunch captured for M15?

@markusfrieske: @jpdavis1982 yes there were thousands captured for the defensive side of the ball and for catching animations.
