The surprise is that that's all it seems to be at this point. I would've assumed the much talked about community interaction would've yielded improvements that were more apparent. Instead it looks more or less like a natural progression of the game - again, taking into account this is a very early look. A lot of the game's core issues (for me) are with the unnatural player movement and lack of player interaction, things that the dev team either (a) doesn't think is as much a problem as it is or (b) will be a difficult issue to get around. I'm floored that they still have those goofy, unnatural-looking QB animations going on 5yrs - that's ridiculous.

exactly.. you got me.. 5 years??!! and what has really changed in terms of animations??? I'm at a loss for words.. IMO they should of just focused on gamplay fluidity & animations, the core of the game..

Re: Extremely dissapointed...

at least we can have 9 guys tackle one player, because that really happens in the NFL....

9 man gang tackles may not happen much irl, but hopefuly this tech helps with goaline blocking and pileups too. Id love to see the linemen get low and have a huge pile up and jump over the pile with my rb for a td...maybe im just dreaming..

I realized that not everyone would be impressed by seeing pile-ups and 3-9 man tackles (thought that sort of boggles my mind, but...)... but it's important to realize and accept that this is indeed an incredible feat regardless of the circumstances. This has never been done before. I know what 2K devs said about just doing 2-man gang tackles, so 3-9 is unthinkable even today... but they did it. How I have no idea, but they did it. It's time to give some props where props are due.

No, that alone won't make Madden into the sim we all want, but it's an amazing start and one that quite frankly I don't think anyone expected, even the people who refuse to give any credit.

People are concerned about weight and momentum with watching the videos, and some of it I think is just worrying a bit too much, but I can tell you that momentum and weight aren't neglected in Madden 10, just as Ian promised. You may not see it from the videos, but when you play it, you'll feel it immediately and to make it all even more sweet, you can tune speeds (like Ian talked about in the blog) and such. You will be able to customize your feel with this. This is big.

I made a case to Ian for that exact kind of user-side tuning back in the Winter time, and maybe Ian was already planning it anyway, but if my posts about it had any effect then I was glad to speak on it. I know how much this is going to help the sim crowd get that tighter more weight-oriented control feel, and I can already see all the fun and debates here brewing over who has the best tuning setup. Out of the box, it's already tuned pretty damn well though. In fact, we just sort of fooled with it rather than really having to hammer on it. I think we all expected it to need a ton of necessary tuning, but it didn't and that was a real surprise at least for me.
It's a great feature I'm not really trying to argue that. But, to me they keep focusing on all of these things that do very little to the overall simulation aspect of the game. Do the gang tackles make it more realistic, yes potentially, but it does not make it into a simulation. When they show me that the X's and O's of the game have finally been done right, along with the player movements/route running/fluidity (which I can tell from the video does not look good) then yes I'll give them some props.

To each his own, we all have different priorities, different things that make a good football game to us. For some it's the graphics, stiching, etc. For others it's gang tackling. Personally that stuff means jack to me unless the X's and O's are all correct.
