Madden Superstar Mode an Exercise in Awful

Have you played Madden NFL 09's Superstar Mode yet? If not, consider yourself one of the lucky ones that hasn't had to endure the pain just yet, at least according to Wil McCombs. McCombs examines the mode in his article, Madden Superstar Mode an Exercise in Awful.

Quote:
"Perhaps I’m both a sadist and a masochist. Is there really any other explanation?

Every year, I devote just a little bit of time to Madden’s Superstar mode. Not because I really think that I will enjoy it. No sir. I do it simply, because it is so brutal. But why, you ask, do I immerse myself in this agony, even for a moment? I have a two-part answer."

Platform: NDS / PS2 / PS3 / PSP / Wii / Xbox 360

Its a shame because its a great idea that would be awesome if executed properly.

They didn't change it one bit between 07, 08 and 09.

It's terribly boring, and only bearable if you somehow create a stellar athlete from the get go - that way you are having amazing games. The only position I've found tolerable are RB and (sometimes) QB, but even that's a pain.

Forgot to mention: if you do create a stellar athlete, which again is the only way to enjoy your play - well, you're going to be in the hall of fame within 2 years because your player is so good.

mmm realism.

I'm with you...!

Superstar is a freaking joke. It's the most mundane experience. Your right I would rather run face first into a brick wall...At least I would get a cool "numbing" feeling.

I totally agree, they could spend time on Presentation and better gameplay. It's a great idea, but it needs so much work which they obviously don't care about.

I think they put alot of Quantity and not Quality into their games.

Re: Madden Superstar Mode an Exercise in Awful

The idea is great and I'd really like a good game of First Person Football... MLB's RTTS mode is boring as well and I play it over and over... even gave NCAA's Campus Legend a shot. I do agree that Madden's not doing it right.

Who remembers the great "Libero Grande"?
