Very well written article even if I think you may be a little too lenient


Pretty fair overall, but if I wrote it, it would be scathing

Nice job, Robert. Very well written, insightful, and fair.

"A lack of computational power is not the problem here. Next-gen graphics and physics (while great) are not the missing ingredient here. The ideas and the execution of those ideas is what feels like the broader issue at play here."

I like how the game feels on the field this year, players appropriately carry their weight. I only play franchise mode and it was of course left untouched again. Here's to hoping future updates improve it. Unfortunately, franchise mode is basically unplayable for me because it crashes after EVERY game. Even with autosave on, it crashes before autosave kicks in and the results aren't preserved. So I play a game to determine the winner, it crashes, I reload the file, and force a winner based on the game I just played. Not good.

You sounded like a Good parent trying to make excuses for his bad child to an upset school Principal but I can dig where you were coming from. I've been playing on the PC and I can say that DON'T dislike the game. I personally think they could have went further with some things. Being that they went back to analog stick d-line moves, I wish they would have done the same thing for the Kick meters. If you are going to have relocation team logos and names in face of the franchise as high school teams, why keep those names for relocation. I think they need to flesh out the QB passing out of a sack option and make it more organic. I wish they gave sliders to adjust the game speed like other games. Still no Refs on the field. I do have a slight liking for the way the game plays on the field. I just figure if you are going to leave the game this untouched for franchise, at least let me carry my franchise over from last year. I don't feel the need to start over for new animations. I'm glad MLB The Show gives that option.

See y'all next year. Hopefully the next-gen improvements will make the game worthwhile.

Can't say it any better than John McKay;

Execution?... "I'm in favor of it"

Same here. EA better get it right next year and for next gen. I'm boycotting all EA sports games this year. That's all I have to say.
