I realize he was referring to the Kinect feature but this quote sums up EA/Tiburon's main goal for next-gen Madden, to this point.

which wouldn't be a problem if realism wasn't always taking the back seat to it


On the plus side....its been a while since Ive been able to smile and appreciate what Infinity does do well in its current state.....Tackling....Minus that horrible looking shoulder charge animation, those tackles gave the football freak inside me a tickle

Pretty cool moments from the video....

@SageInfinite I didn't like the one where Adrian Peterson gets bowled over by a 5'11 185lb corner, ala Steve Atwater and Christian Okoye.

I dont have an issue with that at all. Look at the angle he hit him. Peterson is off balance and the CB hit him square with his shoulder.

He's not off balance and his momentum is still going forward. Plus, Peterson at 215lbs, is 30lbs heavier. I still don't like it, I just don't believe that hit could happen, especially with the him just standing there like that after he hits him. A hit like that, from a much smaller person into a much larger person, would at least made his momentum fly forward as he hits him. Not just stand there like he hit a small child.

The only issue I have with it, is the kill shot + football placement by Peterson, I think the football should be on the ground.

Loved what I saw from some of the game play showing off the Infinity Engine. Not sure how anyone can take anything from that video and spin it as being negative? Since joining OS that is one thing that still baffles me to this day from some of our members.

I really fell like a downer today but I wonder if we will ever see what you are referring to factored in. The wrap up button for securing the ball is a great addition but I am afraid it will never see its' full potential because so many gamers want all the reward but little to no risk. The added risk to using User controlling a player with a lesser carry or catch rating and anytime any player is taking a big hit, should be the need to secure the ball. I despise the fact how the ball magically sticks to players hands and just that added necessity to consistently wrap up/secure the football would make offense that much more realistically challenging for the User.

Even for User receptions I wish success would require not only that the User receiver get their hands on the ball but have to possess it and complete the process by securing the ball with the wrap up button. This would allow for more realistic drops for catches and INTs instead of an instant catch or drop.

User control is far too often used as an excuse for making actions in Madden more manually successful, when manual control should be inherently more challenging but potentially more personally rewarding than trusting the AI. If I can either trust the AI, ie the virtual player or do it myself for a far greater success rate, that's really not much of a choice.

Major Wright (S) is the one who hit AP. He sure as heck can't cover, so perhaps he has a high hit rating, or whatever that type of rating on D is called.

Based on the past I can't give them that much credit. I'd bet his hit power is mediocre to low. It's just an animation playing out. If his hit power is high I would like to know what he's done to garner that reputation.

Isn't it Jonathan Wilhite that hit him?

Don't know if anybody else realized this but Stephan Jackson & the LB for the Browns had on the new cleats they were talking about that they added..

Even tho it really doesnt matter since we can't edit rosters

They do have an odd balance. I let my 3 yr old nephew play and he can keep up with the CPU while pressing every button on the controller and not even looking at the TV. That isn't hyperbole BTW.

But also i can get overwhelmed with Pre-play adjustments if I take a few months off without playing and lose the controller-memory. And I've been playing since 91!

Also, I think this new engine looks unbelievably good when it is zoomed in and slow-mo.

From looking at the Bears website, it looks like you are correct. Wright has taken Corey Graham's old number 21, now that Graham has left for the Ravens, and Wilhite is 27. Apologies for the mixup.

You're giving AP too much credit! This is pure physics! AP doesn't even plant his front foot after breaking the initial tackle and gets hit while only his back foot is planted. Not only that, breaking the first tackle slows his initial momentum going forward while the DB is coming forward with full momentum.... That equals a win for the DB! If AP was able to break that tackle I'd be more upset with that because that doesn't represent true physics!

Also notice how AP rolls over the body of the player who's tackle he broke! AP didn't just fly off the ground.... His body took the blow and as he was going backwards he rolls over the initial tackler! Madden I'm impressed... Now show me some new gloves!!!
