    Quote:
    IGN: "What were your main goals when stepping into this one? What modes did you focus on specifically?"

    Eric Hine: "Well we really wanted to make sure that the whole game is approachable, so we really focused on this idea of "All Play" which bears a bit of explanation. First of all you've got the controls. Obviously we still have all the advanced controls available for hardcore players, but the All Play control is the default control scheme."

Dang, watching the play now video and the game looks like a PS1 game. Hell, the field even kind of looks like the field in College Football USA for the Genesis.

Thanks for the heads up!

Is this All Play feature Wii-only?

No, I believe the PS2 and PSP versions have it as well, or something like it, called Family Play...

Interesting information, I can't wait to at least give it a try in about a month.

I can't wait until my 6-year-old nephew whoops my arse at this game.


It definitely looks like it was made for kids... but what do you expect? It's the Wii.

Everything seems simplified. Graphic overlays are cartoonish.


I'm not sure if it was a great move, though. I think most kids would rather play Madden based on its name. Plus, pro football is a little more popular among young kids than college football is.

And yet your whole comment/post has nothing to do with the topic???
Very interesting!

Anyway this family play thing looks really childish which is exactly what EA wants.
I can see me playing my 11 year old in this mode every once in a while.

Just my opinion, but I'd say the 360/PS3 folks are definitely getting the better of this particular trade off.

I don't know guys......this looks like it brings the fun back into the game. I could do without the trail behind the running and passes, but honestly looks like it plays a fun, smooth game. Taking it back to the PS2 days....

Shouldn't be a trade off in Next-gen. Shouldn't even be something we have to discuss over and over. They should just be in there.

I wonder if those 'trails' are an option that can be turned on/off (?) I know that the 'All Play' system that simplifies things is optional, and that more advanced control/playcalling is available.
