-Sees "Reggie White screenshot" and gets excited

-Opens it up and he's in an Eagles uni

But in all seriousness, he looks REALLY good. This is one of the best looking player models I've seen yet, it really looks like Reggie.

Maybe it's just the lighting in that particular photo, but the shade of green on those uniforms is way too dark.

What Stampede said! Unless its done similarly to how NBA2K11 did it, it really a just a gimmick.

The game LOOKS great. Too bad the line play on both sides is still crap.

I wish the game would respect great players like this.

The uniform has too much blue saturation

If I see him bounce with any offensive linemen I will turn the game off at that point LOL

The player models are great, you can really see the bulk this year. Bravo.

The videos are telling, old builds as they may be; and they are on record saying there wouldn't be overhaul this year, so take that as it is. The incessant graphical and fundamental hiccups with the line play will certainly become distracting if it doesn't get a ton of attention before release. That said, the image is impressive!

Looks good! He means nothing if DE don't get pressure off the edge though.

IMO, EA has had the best looking sports games the past couple of years.

It would be nice to have a camera view that actually showed this detail while playing.
 
# 11 Lionsfan7887 @ 07/13/12 09:11 PM

We already know they only "tweaked" OL/DL play. That along with the vids lets us know a good bit. Will it be a little better due to the tweaks? Maybe but not close to the way most of us want. True OL/DL interaction - less canned animations and weight/power transfer etc.. = Ratings that matter.

So unless you just started playing madden this year, you should know this.

It's not the lighting because the actual hue is far off. It's closer to the Eagles current "midnight green" (technically now "Nike Green", but I refuse to call it that) than it is to their classic "Kelly Green".

I took the liberty of fixing it for them...


The pants might also be off (they are suppose to be silver), but it's hard to tell because the sunlight drowns out the color. I hope I'm wrong and it looks better than in the final game, I doubt there is enough time to fix it now. This is my favorite of all the Eagles uniforms as it is the one I grew up with, so I hope that it looks right.

Maybe it's going through a photo filter that I'm just not seeing. I found from the pictures of Madden 12 onward that the art team likes to put more filters on their photos than a teenage girl using Instagram. "Turn up the saturation, everyone likes bright colors!"

[edit] Here's a comparison shot...


Also, just so this post isn't all negative, I really like the player model. I really wish this leads to the return of classic teams in future Madden titles. For now though, I will have a blast playing as the Minister of Defense on Madden 13.

Wow I knew the color was off but when posted next to kelly green you can REALLY tell. They have never had the Eagles colors right be it Midnight or Kelly.

wait...I don't follow the forums at all...so there's no way to recreate classic teams at all?
 
# 17 bpac55 @ 07/14/12 09:38 AM
there is no create a team anymore for franchise (CCM) you can not import a team in to your franchise (CCM). You could edit a roster to have classic players and do a play now game...that is it

So we can only edit a current team? If I recall didn't past Maddens have classic teams to play with? The only problem was that we couldn't edit the players for the classic teams...

They were very close to getting the midnight green right last year. I was nervous from the screenshots because they looked terrible, however, they looked great in the final game. This goes with my comment earlier about their filters. Most of the colors looked better in the final game than any of the screenshots.

I understand the Eagles color may be tough to match. If you look at my comparison picture, the color examples I have in the middle are the official colors. The "midnight green" shade in the picture is not how it looks on the uniforms. I assume this is due to the material and all. I read an article on the new uniforms that stated Nike had a tough time matching the reebok "midnight green", so they created their own version that should be similar that they are calling "Nike green". I'll give EA a pass for years past because of all that mentioned, and I'm hoping that they continue to tweak the color until we get something that looks exactly like they wear on Sundays (and Mondays, Thursdays and even Tuesdays).

Man I wish they never played that stupid Tuesday game...
