Default Settings Are B.A.D.

Okay....just played my first game with Vick and the Falcons against the Patriots.

392 yards rushing. Ran for 3 TDs plus threw for 2.

How could this be?

I like how you can finally scramble by holding down the A button but come on.

I will say that I like 2006 better than 2005 but all those guys who worked on the design team should be shot for calling this a new game.

I'm so glad I only paid $8 for a rental at Blockbuster which I feel is still way too expensive. Good thing this game can be burned. I feel sorry for you scrubs who paid $50 from your mother's stash to buy crack. I'd rather smoke crack than play this game anyday. What a friggin joke. I'd be embarrassed to say I work for EA Sports at this point. Wow! What a SAD state of affairs.

Maybe if you change the sliders....duh.

They make the default sliders with the majority of gamers in mind: 10-17 year olds who just want to light up the score board and break records.

We, the minority of gamers, who want a true-to-life experience must find our own sliders and setting to get the game to be realistically played.

Peace.

Wow.

Sure, the default settings aren't very good, but that's why there is SLIDERS which allow for gameplay tuning. Surely you've heard of them?

And quite honestly, I highly doubt anyone here really cares about your rant.

This should be locked

It's called turn up the difficulty. And probably stop cheesing with Vick.


Your probably one of those people that just scramble with Vick all day, then call the game "unrealistic"

Don't you think the game should stop him from scrabling with Vick all day? Madden 2006 is the only NFL football game on the market and they still cannot get it right.

Re: Default Settings Are B.A.D.

Yes but setting up a 5 WR formation, that gives you an option of eitehr throwing it deep on 1 on 1 coverage, OR scrambling when everyone except the Dline is covering their man is kinda cheap dont you think?

Thank you! Okay for all of you who say I need to adjust the sliders. Why should I have to do that? Also, I wouldn't call it cheesing with Vick. Vick should be stopped even on the default settings. Why does EA initially set it up for 10-17 year olds? Why shouldn't I rant when this is the ONLY NFL game on the market besides another NFL street game which will be even more far fetched in terms of racking up stats, than this game is???

Re: Default Settings Are B.A.D.

Um, 2K5 was no better at stopping people from running around with their QB's all day long. I mean, if the QB Spy feature actually worked then it might have helped, but QB Spy didn't work. I was able to scramble around with Vinny friggin' Testaverde all day long in that game, junior.

And for the record, you are playing on Pro, try bumping your difficulty up to All-Madden and try that crap.
