Re: Madden 15 Impressions (Impressions Only!)

Currently 1-1 in my Skins CFM. Heading to Philly to take on the 2-0 Eagles.
Need to get my DB's confidence levels up a bit. Been focusing on LB's and OL's...
Still having a blast. Good times so far...

gotcha, didn't realize he had simmed it for some reason. i thought he was talking straight out of the box.

2) No defensive audible for QB contain? - This could be a disaster against people who spam glitchy option plays. There are a few QB contain plays in the playbook I've been messing with, but they're dollar or quarter cover 3/4 zone plays.

3) The playcalling screen is an atrocity - I hate not being able to see the list of sets as I'm scrolling through a formation. I'm sure I'll get in time, but the whole navigation of playcalling is needlessly complicated and clunky.

4) MUT, however, is way, way better organized.

I played an online game. I like how EA has tried to at least make changes. But the play calling menu on the side is kind of annoying. I highly doubt anyone complained about the play calling menu from madden 25 so why change it just to say you changed something?

Also, it seems as though the super linebackers are back this year. I didn't think it was a problem last year. Example, Nico Johnson was covering Gronkowski and what seemed like an open Gronk turned into an unbelievable interception by Nico. He made a play that I don't think any corner could have done in real life. Also, the reaction time by the secondary seems to be overpowered. Again, I didn't think it was a huge problem last year, but Marcus Cooper was man to man with his receiver and then all of a sudden he decides to come off of him without ever looking at Tom Brady and picks off the pass. Unreal.

The players still seem to glide around the field as if it were an ice rink.

Also, hot routing is a pain. Once you do one it lags for some reason. On M25 you could hot route pretty quick without ever waiting.

The game is decent
Hot routes have adjusted to be more realistic. No QB could hot route 2-5 receivers that quickly. Now the QB has to verbally complete each hot route.

So for everyone concerned about that, hot routes have been adjusted to be more realistic.

Re: Madden 15 Impressions (Impressions Only!)

Has anyone tried Green Bay? How is Eddie Lacy? I noticed in last years game I would break a run and still get caught. He's a bigger back, but he is fast and did have a few long runs last year. Also, how does Rodgers feel playing as? On defense is Clay Matthews a tank like he is in real life? I mean now he has Peppers help on the other side. And Hows the new rookie Ha Ha Clinton-Dix?

This should be in the Q/A thread.

I wish franchise were the meat and potatoes, that honor goes to the "Ultimate "$$" Team".

Re: Madden 15 Impressions (Impressions Only!)

Has anyone else had the cpu automatically pick their play for them? i've ran into this a few times where it happened immediately, including a few pivotal 4th down plays online. Other than that have really enjoyed it. 25 was pretty unplayable online against randoms but i've found the ranked matches to be enjoyable so far. Good defensive low scoring games so far

Guys complaning about the delay in between hot routes. I hope EA doesn't change that next year after hearing those complaints.
