Cam somebody tweet Young and see if the Commish and Community Creators can get a way to "lock" this in for everybody?

My first impression is that the buttons display (X,Y,B,A) seems a bit too big. 2nd, LOVE the new field texture. 3rd, worries me a bit that the outside part of the field won't be noticeable, say my X receiver is running a quick out route, according to this photo, it would be quite hard to see him on the screen.

Please, oh please tell me the camera changes for defense. If it does, than this will be an absolutely amazing new addition to the game.

If not, than this was a half-done cool addition to the game.

I know it is not traditional to play defense looking over the players shoulders but with a view like this, it is a must. Playing a safety or linebacker would just be a nightmare with how far away your player is.

I'll play w/ it for sure (at least for a little while)... But they really need to bring back custom camera angles.

If the camera changed for the DEF then it would be almost impossible to switch control players on D, as you can only see what's in front of you and not what's happening with WR/DB etc.. + after the qb throws the ball or the rb advances past the LOS the camera would have to make a spin (which would disrupt the flow of the game imo)

Or maybe I'm not understanding what u mean by "changing the camera for defense"

I like it -- wish it was a little bit closer to the QB though. Kind of looks like the 'God Cam' at field level.
 
# 8 moneal2001 @ 05/29/12 08:03 PM
i think it really needs to be moved closer to the qb at least a little. there is too much unused space between the camera and the qb, its 10 yards behind him. it would feel better to me if it was moved in to about 5 or 6 yards behind the qb. but then you wouldnt be able to see the flats i guess.

I like it. I won't use it but I like it. It'll definitely make that superstar mode more enjoyable and playable.

Camera look allright, but a lot going wrong on the right side of the field.

....What is the RDE/RDT doing, no push.

......What is the ROLB doing, there is no one there bro.

......what is the RCB doing, again, no one there.
 
# 11 mvb34 @ 05/29/12 08:13 PM
Needs to be little closer.. Can we get a camera angle from the defense side like to 3 on 3 play like madden 11
 
# 12 Gotmadskillzson @ 05/29/12 08:23 PM
Too far back and too low to the ground for my tastes.
 
# 13 Armor and Sword @ 05/29/12 08:31 PM
Zoom camera rocks. I am glad they are tweaking this to be better. It was almost perfect on Madden 10 so just go back to that with tweaks.

I can't stand the default god cam. Really bad, too far back and the visual quality and details are lost.

defintely needs to be moved closer

If it was raised up slightly and tilted a little I think it would be better.

As somebody mentioned earlier, the reason why it's so far back is most likely because otherwise we wouldn't be able to see the flats. I'm more worried about not being able to see the outside receivers from the LOS.

thats what im saying man..bringing back customizable, playable camera options is like an "EASY" button for any sports game....its a done deal an everyone is happy

as for this screenshot it looks good but looks may be deceiving ... is this the view if your on defense??..if it is, its a fail... because its way too far down field in back of the action to be able to negotiate depth of the players/yards ...ill give it a try though for sure im sick of the standard camera

me personally i liked the zoom camera in madden 12 especially on D..it really got me into controlling my d-lineman and working for sacks...on offense i thought if they zoomed out just a little bit more on pass plays it wouldve been sweet because it was hard to throw any sideline routes...hell its hard to throw sideline routes on the standard cam w/ physic DBs but that should be fixed this year

overall i think this NEW zoom camera needs a little nudge forward upfield just a little bit closer to the action on a pass play

Why do they keep screwing around with these preset camera angles? Just give us fully customizable cameras like we had on the PS2.

Yeah. I liked custom angles. I throw too many interceptions when I can't see the whole field. (I have that problem with NCAA as well.)
