Ratesports did a very good job with those team likenesses. Almost made me forget how bad a game Backbreaker was.

As much as I love he idea of defeating the machine, I can go ALL IN on this. I respect Ratesports for the hard work just like those who contribute to NCAA rosters. Or 2k football games. But this makes me more upset that Madden has Sucked so bad in gameplay over the years. Backbreaker came and went on the console. Yet look at the mark the made.

This officially leads me to the OUYA fantasy I have. I truly believe that ppl like Shady, Ratesports And all of us who devote time to the sim world can now take what OUYA is giving us and make a classic. Your talking about no limitations. The only limitations will be the human mind and the fact that games aren't real. But giving all this love to Backbreaker and 2k 5 is getting a little over the top. 2k 5 is a PS2 game graphics are old as old yeller. And Backbreaker cameras are bad and all the ppl look like. Brian Dawkins. and run like Eric Dickerson. So maybe we should lobby tge devs to make another console game and fix the few downsides. Then that may be a classic.

But until Madden officially hits the shelves and this infinity engine is tested we gotta have patience.

Kna miin.

I know y'all honna blast me but is cool.

Obviously the graphics aren't up to par with EA, however the animations are far superior.

If the the devs wouldn't have did that dum dum move locking the camera in place I probably would still have this game. Another question, can you actually truck someone in that game? Of all the physics present in the title, I've never seen a true one on one squared up truck move.

The camera isn't what bothered me most. It's that the patch, which fixed game play issues, totally destroyed the ability to customize your team, which was one of the most touted features of the game.

Prepatch = sorry gameplay, Postpatch = all rosters get screwed up if you edit anything about a team

But what really makes me mad is that they left it that way. Did not fix it. That's what really grinds my gears, and that is why I wouldn't buy a second game if they ever even made it.

Yeah I liked BB but the patch did ruin creating a team sadly.

They call it a "barge" move in this game. You can do it by holding down the right trigger and pressing up on the right joystick.

So does this mean EA did not renew their contract with the NFL for exclusive rights?
 
# 15 Aggies67 @ 08/01/12 09:20 PM
No, these are "unofficial" rosters by a third party, not by the developer.
