Presentation in 2K5

I KNOW this has been talked about 120941825 times roughly, but what I just saw was mind boggling. I owned 2K5 when it came out, and certain things I do not recall.

My friend just finished his game, and decided to watch the post-game show. That in itself was great. Then Chris Berman says "lets go down to the field with Suzy Kulber who is with tonight's player of the game."

I was like "WHAT???" And next thing I know, she asked Thomas Jones a question and he gave a pretty lengthy response. Both my friend and I were both completely blown away by that. It's incredible to think of what this game accomplished on an overall much weaker console.

Don't get me wrong, I'm a Madden fanboy. Madden 04 has been my favorite STILL to date. But the guys taking on the presentation for Madden NOW, need to take a deep look into 2K5's game. Even if they don't use ESPN's TM in Madden, they can use NFL Network, and deliver a similar style presentation.

Re: Presentation in 2K5

Let's just put it this way. If Madden doesn't have the deepness of ESPN's presentation (including the flawless commentator transitions that you mentioned), they ain't seeing my $59.99 this year. Now someone may say "OMG, U R BEING SO HARSH!! what if the gameplay is better??!?!?". Doubt it. Great presentation almost always comes with great gameplay. If one is lacking, the other is probably suspect as well.

I doubt that it'll have the presentation of 2k5. I loved NFL 2k5, and think it was a great game, and to this day it's still a great game, but people put it a little too high on a pedestal and act like it didn't have its flaws. Both games have things they do well, and things they need to improve on and if 2k5 is still a better title to you and you'd prefer to play that over a newer Madden title more power to you. $60 saved for you, and I have a feeling EA will be able to survive without it.

I see what you're saying. It will take A LOT of hard work for the presentation to be nearly as deep as 2K5 was. And a lot of memory on the disk. Hopefully they can greatly improve upon last year's though.

I will say 2K5 definitely did have it's flaws. But as far as the total football game experience, it blows Madden 06-09 out of the water.

Sure, NFL 2k5 definitely had it's flaws. But presentation certainly wasn't one of them. And after 5 years, is it really so unfair to expect EA to AT LEAST match it on a console that's 20x+ powerful as it's predecessors? I mean, I'm not even saying that it has to be better. Just the same quality! That's how low the bar has been set, lol.

Re: Presentation in 2K5

Haha, if you ask me... The bar is still set pretty high. Especially with how good the presentation truly was ;]
