Madden Animations, why no one complain about this? They are the soul of the game.

So i kept reading about things that Madden needs to improve and how it lack of features compared to 2k etc and one thing that stood out is how awful and robotic Madden animations are compared to 2k.

Madden does not get right not only tackling, qb throws eve the basic running animation is bad.

Compared how life like qb motion is from 2k to madden, night and day.

Hopefully we get this loud so dev can spend some resource and get some motion capture instead of those hand made animations they have.

We've been complaining about Madden animations for 10 years.

I'll definitely be the first one to say Madden needs clean up in the animation department. They're are some nice wr/db interactions & others however. Madden needs to pull from a bigger pool or have more trigger.

I never played 2k but came across a video a couple years ago and was blown away how much more it looked like actual football than Madden does. The way the line engages and players move in the open field is far superior than Madden.

Iím hoping the gameplay blog will show us some much needed improvements to this years game.

I've never played this game either; but I just so happen to be looking at vid's from older games on youtube and ran across this one. I ordered it from my local Gamestop for $5 and it should be in today. This video by itself doesn't do it justice. There are several showing different parts of the game and it's amazing how a game from 2007 can be better in areas that matter most than games from 2018. I will say this...Madden is gonna be what Madden is...it's never going to have the look and feel of any other football game. They have established what they want their game to look and feel like so...

Maddenís animations are very disjointed, in a vacuum they arenít necessarily that bad. 2k does a nice job with the transition of animations and making it feel seem less and overall have a more natural feel. Madden on the other hand itís very easy to see the transition of animations from one to the other, on top of that they have a lot of exaggerated animations, combined lead to a robotic feel. I will say PS2 Maddenís had some of the better running animations in a football game.

Idk, I think they're decent. I certainly wouldn't call animations the soul of the game. Doubt I would rank them in the top 3 most important aspects of a sports game for me. But I still turn on Madden 04 so different strokes for different folks.
