Re: Commentary is actually ok

I'm not trying to troll or be a jerk but I don't see how you can point out a major problem with commentary while saying it is "ok". The fact that you MUST use Gameflow, an optional feature, for commentary to sound "ok", means EA did this intentionally. I don't know about you but that's definitely not "ok" with me.

What if protak, player storylines and online franchise salary cap all worked perfect only on Rookie difficulty, would you think that makes them "actually ok" ? The fact that anyone is REQUIRED to use an OPTIONAL feature just to get a universal feature to work "ok", is worse, IMO. At least if it doesn't work period, the argument can be made for glitches and what not. However, to actually have it work "ok" only with Gameflow, shows they could have improved it overall but didn't.

Yet another shining example of EA putting Madden Joes before Madden Pros!

I would think after 2k5, companies would have long ago realized voice actors are the way to go over professional commentators.

I vote Keifer Sutherland and David Hayter in the booth for Madden 12.

... two minutes to go, down by 4, on your own 9 yard line.

Sutherland: THEY'RE RUNNING OUT OF TIME!
Hayter: DAMN!
Haha I would definitely buy that game. Imagine a coach getting a gatorade bath after a superbowl win.

Hayer: Urrrrgghhhh liquid...

Is this a moderator trolling I see??

Kidding, kidding. I hated Gus Johnson when I first started playing, now I actually quite like him. It adds to the drama when I throw a bad pass and he says, "he's gonna pass... AWWWW!!!! Innerception!!!!"

They do need more banter, but what they really need is better selection of commentary. The amount of times I've heard "they tackle him for a loss... AT THE SIXTEEN!!!!!" is really annoying when there are other peices of commentary that fit in really well.

In any case, the guys I'd like to see commentating are Cotton McKnight and Pepper Brooks, from Dodgeball. Think about it...

C: He throws into two-on-one coverage, that's a manage a trois of pain!
P: Usually you pay double for that kind of action, Cotton.

And others...

Re: Commentary is actually ok

The commentary has more problems than just a gap caused by not using the coordinator audio. To list them all would turn this into a different thread.

LT, you're right...but I always played with the coord. audio off, and so that killed the flow of the game, that was my point...it's tolerable...but not much more
