I'd say that's gross exaggeration.

It has problems, but it's not even close to being unplayable.

It's ridiculous how people come on here and spew a ton of BS about this game. I understand some people focus on certain things more then others, but to say this game is nearly unplayable is flat out idiotic.

Re: Prediction: Patch Comes Out Before Thanksgivings

Maybe not unplayable, but the replay value of this version - while better than any Madden on this gen - still sucks cuz of franchise issues, and some gameplay annoyances that never should have made it thru the testing of the game in the first place!!!!

Might not be unplayable to you, but it is to me......sorry having unrealistic stats for franchise basically kills it for me, might not for you but does me.

watching how poor the blocking is in the game time after time.....it's fun not sacking the qb but watching the ball float in the air for easy picks all game, or having the computer qb just drop back and throw a floating ball "not even hit" 10 yards to a guy covered

that's unplayable to me, I dont care what you think..go have fun with it... I guess you like playing broken games, and well that's flat out "idiotic"

Like someone else said, that's an exaggeration. By controlling every team, for me it's always going to be better than the AI handling things. I was able to get fairly realistic stats just by playing a few games a week as well.

Also, why take such a childish road and bring in these exaggerations and words like "idiotic"? I don't like playing broken games, but it isn't broken. It's flawed, there's a difference. The flaw kills it for you, but "broken" and "unplayable" in terms of gaming implies that it still has the freezing glitch.

This patch isn't going to miraculously fix every gripe you have with the game, nor will it perfect franchise mode. Realistically it will make things a little better, similar to NCAA changing progression with a surprise 3rd patch...but honestly, that didn't change the "feel" of playing a dynasty at all. Everything was nearly the same as before, despite the supposed "broken" progression.

Franchise stat tracking is off, but if that's the only reason you find it unplayable than I don't know what to tell you. It's the most functional it has been in half a decade.
Most functional it has been in half a decade? what??? really? based on what? atleast Running backs got tds in those other previous versions...

franchise to me "personally" has nothing to do with anybody else's taste, is unplayable, so untill this patch comes out.. it's basically a game that's unplayable

Unrealistic stats totals in franchise? I agree that passing TD's are a tad high and rushing TD's are a tad low, but if that's why franchise is unplayable to you then have you ever played a franchise mode in any NFL video game before? There's always been some kind of oddity, especially in Madden games. Whether it's a the habitual 2000 yard rushers or guys racking up 250 tackles a year, there's always been something. The problems with franchise stat tracking this year are pretty damn minimal and easy enough to look over. They should definitely be addressed for next year (or with the upcoming patch, if possible) but it's not a game breaker at all.

As for your gameplay gripes... that's Madden. I despise the blocking and some of the CPU/AI issues, but a patch is not going to dramatically change this game. As much as it pains me to say this because you should never have to just settle, you just have to accept it. It's always been there, it always will be there.

If you can't look past some of these issues, I think you would be best suited to putting the controller down and playing whatever other NFL video game that appeals to you. I'm sorry if I offended you with my "flat out idiotic" comment, but people who expect this patch to fix all of their complaints with this series (especially those which aren't problems, just how the game is programmed to play) are going to be seriously disappointed. It'll be a cleaner version of the game, but it will still be Madden 10.

I used the word "idiotic" because it was said to me....as for handling all teams, I shouldnt have to do this to get realistic stats and it still doesnt fix the HB glitch...so next? it's funny you people try to push what you feel and attack anyone else who doesnt agree...I didnt use idiotic, it was thrown at me.

There are always problems. The best sim engines were actually 5+ years ago, ironically. You'd think they'd just keep the same one if it worked well.

And yeah, unless you didn't play the last couple years, I don't know how you missed the overabundance of 2000 yard rushers in recent years.
