Saw a few new plays that weren't in 10 which is good.

About 3 mins into the 2nd vid i thought he was gonna go into the 'NFL Rosters' menu.

I wanna see some ratings.

Well it is nice to have some new plays and all. But alot of the blitz plays become useless when the AI always seem to pick everything you throw at it. I'm getting madden 11 no doubt. But it really bothers me when half these plays don't work when the AI seems to know when to pick up the blitz at the right time. Playing agaist the AI offense alot of the times is for nothing whe it knows what you are doing presnap.

Damn, I was hoping to catch a glimpse on one of those menus that said "formation sub". I really hope they got that in this year.

Well I'm not down about it. I'm just a little unhappy about them not turning up the agressiveness on the D some so there would be a little more pressure on the AI QB. Last year it wasn't good. It seems the same as this year. But I'm still looking forward to the game this year coming no doubt.

This. 75% of the time none of the blitz plays work. If there is one flaw to you're play, the CPU is gunna find it.

Legend Killer, just out of curiosity, how do you know that the pressure isn't turned up? There's a thread on page 3 from ch46647 where it's been confirmed by Ian that there is a pre-snap control that tells your linemen to rush upfield and pressure the quarterback in passing situations.

It looks like it's the same mechanic that's in NCAA's demo and it's been working perfectly for me.

Very much so. If you call a overload blitz to the left are right. The AI will pick it up before the snap and block it perfectly. The AI never makes a misteak on blocking assignments. It use to in the past maddens. But the past few years in madden. The AI seems to block perfectly everytime. It could be improved. I'm not 100% sure yet. But I guess the demo and final version will tell me so.

The thing that really pissed me off was the QB would sit in the pocket for FOREVER and sit and sit and I got 9 people in coverage and he somehow squeezes it into an ant window.

Well I never did say it wasn't turned up in madden 11. I'm just saying. I hope it has. I'm looking forward to see if it has been improved this year. That's what the demo is for. I'm just saying. I didn't say I knew wheather it is improved are not. It could have been turned up for all I know. Just wait and see thing you know what I mean.

Oh, okay. It's just that you worded it like you were sure. I gotcha, though.

That really looks nothing at all like the Jets defensive playbook. If they're not going to improve something like franchise, they need to at least get the in game product better.

Except it is what the Jets do run. Tiburon just copies the plays run by the jets you know. They don't manifest plays out of thin air. Now many of the plays you see are run very rarely. The jets gravitate to their 'money' blitzes mostly.

What's wrong with the Jets playbook? Looks like there are a lot of new blitzes--most of them are pretty basic and run by most teams, but it's nice to see some new stuff. The Jets IRL are just really good at disguising and timing and covering behind those blitzes. Now hopefully they'll put Revis on your best WR when you play them.

Broncos definitely have some Tebow stuff put in. Pats have more of their stuff in there too.

They started to do a good job last year at adding each team's little touches (on offense), so hopefully they continued that this year.

It's not much, but I did take a quick look at the fastest and top rated players overall at each position; you and everyone else can see them here Nev: http://www.Compete4ever.com

-Things are definitely looking up for Madden though; they've done a great job improving on the foundation that was laid last year.


Thanks for the post Steve! -Unfortunately, it looks like the OS team and I were never around the EA "booth" at the same time long enough to say hi; too bad, there's always next year though. --They did a great job though.
