Re: Madden NFL 15: Three Things To Be Excited About

In fairness to EA, I don't think I have the capacity to get "excited" for Madden this year. Last year I got the deal from Amazon to get old gen and then trade in for current gen for an additional $10. The gameplay and CFM were so unbalanced and stale, with little improvement to the new console, that I just had no fun playing. It's like I got two disappointments from them in one cycle, and that's a lot to overcome.

With that taste in my mouth, after all the hype we had gotten from e3 onward about last year's title, especially on new consoles, I just can't get excited, no matter what they say, no matter what the videos and blogs say.

I will say I absolutley recognize that this team is working on moving things in the right direction. It seems like gameplay could be meaningfully improved even if robotic player movement is still in the game. Presentation is improved. CFM may have made some strides but continued lack of customization and user control options is disappointing. No word on sliders or off the field CPU logic/AI is a problem for me.

So, while I recognize and appreciate hearing about what sounds like progress, I'm going to wait and see. What OS users say by around September 15 will tell me whether or not I want to buy the game.

Well, I am not bashing Madden. I mentioned something I liked from 2K (Total Control over passing) that I would like to see in Madden (a game I like and play as well)

If my player or his would get fatigued, injured or was backup only playing occasional snap while the other is on the field they should be just a spectator watching each play until they return or if both are off the field you should have a choice to sim to next appearance. Madden isn't the only franchise that needs to implement this, I believe 2K which is already on a different planet as far as gameplay would create a game that is hands down a must have for any sports fan or gamer. I hope that all makes sense to those who read this and if I have copied what someone else posted, my bad. I'm curious what others think on this matter.
I think they had that in superstar mode and it wasn't too successful ..... Well at least with the community I played with... We gave it a try but I guess we were cfm guys and like controlling the entire and franchise

Idk if they scrapped that mode but I stopped looking for it... Sounds exciting when you explain and that's how we felt going into the superstar cfm but it didnt work for us

But i do understand there are ppl like that type of gameplay you are describing epecially the my player 2k heads( sorry for the 2k reference )

In Madden 13 and Madden 25 as well as previous Maddens, I could not put the ball where I wanted. It is something that has killed Madden for me.

Example:

A WR is running an out route down the sidelines. The WR has the CB beat and has good separation. The SS/FS is overtop but will not have enough time to get there. In Madden, It has been impossible (for the most part) to put the ball in that window.

Either the CB will miraculously catch up to the ball (the ball should be faster) or the SS/FS will get there in time. Also, you just cant throw over the shoulder and away from DBs.

I hate to bring up 2K, but in that game I could put the ball wherever I wanted and away from DBs. I could even throw at a guys feet if I wanted too.

All I want from Madden (as well as the other additions) is Full control over where I can put the ball.
It may seem like that but give me a good qb and good we and that out route will be money unless you cover the route yourself or set the right coverage....

My point is does depend on timing analog stick control and how hard you press the icon button and what's the ratings over the involved players

I can't comment on how 2k did it because I haven't played 2k since 2005 and I can barely remember how the game wa but do remember it gave madden a run for its money

It may need touching up and some other areas are lacking but I think gpthe positive out weighs the negative but a lot IMO

I always enjoy Madden they always had something wrong with them...Ican list it out from 1st gen madden up tto M25 but my down yes were 06-08 personally M13 is where I started to see the progress I finally was pleading for and now this yr all the news and additions and theology that's going into madden...

I dk about you guys but I havent seen a game listen and try to please the community as they are doing now ...granted it may have taken them too long they finally have...I was starting to be influenced by some ea bashing going on around the net but hearing about this and seeing some other good games they offer let alone the new ea access deal which is sweet... I'm not a fanboy just giving my opinion thanks I'm s xbox guy so I can get the game on 21 with out going around searching every store in new York to fine the game for 70-75$

Sorry I got off topic but that's just somethings I'm excited about and a response to a post

No doubt ON PAPER, there are some legit improvements made to make M15 a better game. All the defensive improvements should help balance out a game that has been largely one sided in the recent past.

One thing I have learned however is to temper my excitement with this franchise. Like I said ON PAPER all these improvements to gameplay and presentation look great. They all will mean nothing though if they don't function correctly or consistently enough.

Hey I hope the improvements are the real deal for sure because if they are I have a feeling we are all in for a very nice game of football in a couple weeks.
