We're not able to play defense in the demo? That's pretty weak. I know the virtual trainer is there and all, but not being able to play defense in the actual game...

Yikes, that is uber ghey. I want to get a feel for the game, how can you do that if you CANT PLAY DEFENSE!!! This will raise all sorts of questions as to what they are hiding.

I was thinking the same thing. My confidence is not so high on this now!

Especially since the defense is one of the biggest gripes with NCAA this year. However I am still looking forward to the demo, can't comment on what I haven't played.

Can't play defense?

What?

How long is the demo, like 1 offensive series then back to the Demo Intro screen?

I'm confused.

So I guess the retail demo (geez that sounds lame) isn't of an old build after all? gah.

I have a feeling this was done on purpose. Will Madden be just like NCAA and be offense favored once again? I'm willing to bet it will be. Unfortunately...

Yeah this is kind of fishy. I understand wanting to do something "different" but with all the legit concerns with NCAA, not being able to play defense in the demo is weird.

Plus, it's not the "same demo" in the DVD. Someone said it was back in April, while this demo is close to final build.

Guess I will be waiting on XBL for the demo....

Can you link to where Phil or Ian said it was an earlier build on the DVD? Pasta makes it sound like the same thing just one is available today and one is in 9 days

You can't play defense this year, it will be an added feature next year .

Since Sony only updates the store on Thursday, it's really August 7th on PSN.
 
# 14 texbuk84 @ 07/22/08 12:31 PM
i think im going to purchase the nfl dvd.
 
# 15 hail2thevictors @ 07/22/08 12:46 PM
yeah that's pretty wack not being able to play D!
 
# 16 swanlee @ 07/22/08 12:47 PM
What if while playing the demo the defense gets an INT? Does the demo end so you don't get the chance to play defense?

Seems to me it would be harder to prevent you from playing defense then just giving you a single game with 2 min qtr's.

Something is not right, it would take more work to limit this demo like it is.

I must say that I'm pretty disappointed....How you release a football demo with only one offensive possession is beyond my understanding....I swear if the defense is anything like NCAA's I WILL boycott Madden for the first time ever until it's addressed. The kind of unfair advantage that the offense has over the defense in NCAA is inexplicable.

you've seen videos of the game on all-madden. does it look like NCAA?
 
# 19 countryboy @ 07/22/08 05:15 PM
speculations are running wild...
 
# 20 mrprice33 @ 07/22/08 05:16 PM
