Madden 11 is better from a gameplay standpoint. If they would stop calling 8 man blitzes it would be really solid.

Re: Which was the better game?

Speaking of the 8-man blitzes, let's not forget that right out of the box, Madden 10 had a huge problem with all-out blitzes. I'm talking every down all out blitzes. You literally could pass for 400 yards a game by only calling slants and screens to beat the blitzes.

^^I think there is something to be said for this...although I wouldn't call it trolling.

It all came to a head (IMO) with people singling out M08 as a great football game . Is revisionist history the correct term? Maybe not...

It's not even close.

Madden 2011. The points have been made by others on this thread. This is the most realistic Madden ever produced (post patch 1.05).

They got it going in a great direction. The running game is fantastic, the pocket is very good, and the game is fun again.

Re: Which was the better game?

madden 10 for what it lacked:

No strat pad
no gameflow
no gameplanning

Although by EA's telemetry, 75% of plays are called using the new feature {Ian via twitter}...who are these people?

LOL. Still, Madden 2010 had so many bugs and gameplay flaws that were killers for me.

Gameflow can be turned off. And yes the playbooks were downsized, but there are still plenty of play options, more than I know what to do with. I call 15-17 core plays on offense and I will sprinkle in some odder plays like reverses, flea flickers, QB run pass options etc.

Madden 2011 is a much better version of 2010. And I think that is what so many people around here are so upset about.

2012 will the year of the offline franchise improvements we have all been waiting for.

Madden 11 by far. I dont understand how people can say Madden 10s defense was better, the flats were always open and the horrendus pursuit angles killed defense for me.

Re: Which was the better game?

While I believe the NHL series has taken a step back (for the reasons I have noted on that forum), I believe M11 is better on the field than M10, while keeping all of the attributes in M10 I enjoyed. While I am switching back and forth between NHL 10 and 11, I have not had the urge at all to play M10 since I got M11.
