ok so Ive been pretty down on madden lately but this impressed me, it definitely looks better and more complete. Also is it just me or does it seem like there's a lot less skating going on?

Still looks to robotic.. sheezz it will never truely change.. They just can't get it right. Also something about the players bodies that just doesn't look right?? Almost like they all have short legs or certain players are to bulky? Idk, it's weird..

Got to remember that the game is still been tuned right now. But all the robotic movement been there for years. I don't think it will change much until the next Gen. consoles come out. Doesn't bother me to much. So long as the gameplay is much better then it has been in Madden12.

James Brown would tell you what week it was and what ever.....then pre-game John Madden and Pat Summeral would talk about how important the game was, if it was important.

I'm sure/expect it to be more advanced....especially since they went the computer animation route which should give them unlimited flexablity in what they add...compared to John and Pat's pre rendared FMVs.
Actually, during the webcast, Mike Young corrected the host and said the Sega Genesis days had 2D characters for announcers.

Remember this was Pre-Alpha Gameplay. Dont get too deep into detail quite yet.

That's Madden 101 bro...package up old features and sell them as "new"....EA has been doing that for years. At this point I'd be happy if they repackaged the passing cone and sold that as a new feature...it was one of the truly innovative things they did over the years and in their ultimate wisdom chose to remove it from the game.

I guess I'm the only one who really loves the way the game is looking, animations and all. Something about both games this year just seems smoother to me.

See I dont agree with this at all. I don't know how to exactly explain this but it is more instinctive I guess.

Once the ball is in the air somehow and someway you just know as a defender. I'm sure many here had played the game, and if you played defense you did not chase your man blindly meanwhile the ball has moved. You moved towards the ball pretty instantly regardless of your assignment.

Anyone else understand my statement, and if so please feel free to add to it.

Thanks

I don't really have a problem with that since I have been asking for the features in the past to come back. It's only going to make the game better.

Now with the animations I was not expecting anything special there. It is already proven to me that this engine doesnt allow for true moving animations. Like mentioned ealier as long as the game plays better Im cool, and better A.I is important.

Well, fundamentally sound players who see the ball (or the players/coaches on the sideline) normally yell "Run!" or "Pass!" on every play. Once that word is yelled defensive players normally start looking for the ball.

Lets all use our imagination and consider someone on the field is yelling those key words.
 
# 12 mrprice33 @ 04/26/12 02:31 PM
lol @ everybody complaining that "they've done this before".

How would YOU replicate a TV broadcast?

Heck, why don't you write angry letters to ESPN saying "you've done this before"?

I'm with you, but I'll still be waiting on impressions from the community before buying. No way I'm getting burned like I was last year. By the way, that last comment also refers to other games not made by EA, just to be clear.

No you're not. Loving what I've seen so far. Im as harsh and critical as most but can give credit when its due.
Just wish all the 'call me when this or that gets added' people would actually leave until someone called them.
I feel Madden is haded up this year. Does it have everything I want? No. However as long as improvements are being made then carry on.
 
# 15 NASCARS @ 04/26/12 04:54 PM
why the hell was Alex Smith black? and darren sharper was turned completely around and still broke on that ball EXACTLY when the receiver did. gimme a break. i'm so sick of thinking these guys are gonna figure it out.

I think the game just looks smooth this year. I buy NCAA almost no matter what, and Madden about every other year. Maybe its because the game looks so much better in replay (the 3D grass should be added to the field IMO), but I just like the way the players are moving. We'll see. Like DJ said, I'm not going to make a purchase just for the sake of it, and I'll wait until I've seen everything I need to see.

From everything I've seen and heard, it would appear that EA is making a concerted effort, which is all I can ask for at this point.

I like how Backbreaker did this. When I'm on defense it really helps.

They must not be able to change this. Same with the quick turns. You can see it on the 32 minute mark of the podcast. The Bengals kick returner does that quick 1/4 circle turn back and forth with no foot planting. After 5 years of people asking to change this aspect, they simply must not be able to do it. It would be nice to hear from a dev "we literally cant change these things till we rebuild the whole game." That would satisfy me and others that hold our breath every year for these changes
