What I don't understand is why FIFA and NHL have a wide list of authentic equipment choices and Madden doesn't. Jordan brand cleats are sooooooo under appreciated in this game. These two tones they have are wretched it kills the look. Asking with the skinny ankle's. It's time to add custom options for accessories, real authentic accessories, and the passing players wear under the pads for shock absorption. We wrote Shock pads under our shoulder pads. And neck pads to reduce the head from snapping back, and for looks. That house collar is so effin. 80's they seem to only think face masks are hot. Bring back the colored visors too.
Damn we need a new developer.
As a die-hard hockey fan, I completely disagree with your "wide list of authentic equipment choices" statement. Sure, there are a few of the absolute newest helmets, gloves, etc. available on NHL. But, in recent years, they've completely removed all of the equipment that's more than a year old. Therefore, as a Penguins fan for example, I have to play with two of the best players in the game (Crosby and Malkin) wearing helmets that look nothing close to what they wear in real life. Most of the players don't wear their real equipment, because for no reason EA decided to take it out of the game. In Madden, you can still wear the old-style Riddell helmets from 20 years ago. So, Madden has more "authentic" choices that you see on the field than NHL. By far.
who gives a **** about packs of cards? that's not ultimate. it's the worst misnomer since the halloweeen candy was labeled "Fun Size". it should be called terrible microtransaction ripoff scam to get you to pay a bunch of money for fake cards in your video game.
Why are people so up in arms about spending less than 50 cents per pack? If you don't play UT, don't worry about it. If you do play UT, this is dirt cheap.
There are so many ways people (myself included) waste money on a daily basis. Spending .5 dollars on a pack of UT cards once a month isn't even close to the top of the list. If UT cards are your worst money sink you deserve a medal.
