Madden 09 News Post

GameSpot has posted their hands-on preview of Madden NFL 09. They have also posted some more screenshots and a video clip.

"There's one other aspect of difficulty in Madden NFL 09: game style. There are a number of different game styles you can choose from before you begin a game, and each presents information to you in a slightly different way once the game begins. On the beginner game style, the game is simplified to a great degree; for example, when in the huddle, the game will give you only one play to call. As you move up through the more advanced game-style options, you'll get more play-call options available to you, until you reach the hardcore level, which is a presentation level designed for the most faithful Madden fans. At the hardcore level, superfluous features such as instant replays and the backtrack feature (which breaks down your busted plays in exacting details) are turned off so that you can get to the next play as quickly as possible."

good look on the post

ok... the virtual Madden IQ training thing looks goofy. And I am still skeptical on how it will work. Like its been stated before, I don't want the game to dumb down a great team or improve a poor team based off my performance from a previous game. Glad that I can turn it off.

Meh.....

DE's are still getting thrown to the grown like ragdolls, instead of getting up field to force the QB to step up in the pocket.

I noticed flash bulbs nice.

Collinsworth is sounding pretty good. He's delivering good analysis and player specific comments. It sure beats Madden's one liners in the past like "Peyton Manning has a quick release". I just hope they tone down the camera flashing. It's a bit much.

I thought Hammond didn't sound as robotic either.

Hammond is a boring guy in the booth. Just my .02.

And man, people in Dallas sure like taking pictures at football games.

Collinsworth sounds good but........ the ..........other ............dude........... has..........too .............many ...........pauses.......in his ......speech
 
# 11 SteelerSpartan @ 05/22/08 08:26 PM
Nope sorry but Hammond isn't sounding any better to me whatsoever
Especially when he says "And they get him" and the pause before it.

^^That part is god awful


They have to completely redo his lines for 2010

agreed.

As I've said before, Hammond is a boring commentator whether in the game or IRL. Collinsworth is better in the game then I expected.
