Odell's tattoos...

More tats on ODB. Really hard to get a read on the animations. Everything is in short cuts but the one with the jostling didn't look much different from M15, just a bit more extended and then it looked like it cut right as it was ending. The catch at the end looked really good in terms of being smooth and looking nice. I just hope that it never actually happens in game lol. Need to keep watching.

I liked the turn around by Manning before he got sacked. Looked really fast not bad. The rollout looked bad but the throw animation wasn't too bad I thought. Looked like the crowd had towels but unfortunately they were all swinging in sync. No new equipment and the jerseys look really dull and not vibrant.

And why is Larry Ridley announcing the game? That sounded eerily similar to the old bunker radio guy from M07.

so really what they are saying is ,more forced animations will dictate the outcome of games.... great

fans have rally towels, terrible towels in Pittsburgh?

The game still looks a little clunky, but it's an improvement.

One thing I've never been able to understand: EA's inability to have the ball flow naturally out of the QB's hand instead of immediately detaching itself. Has always looked terrible.

Really hard to tell much from this, but I just have a bad feeling we'll be seeing that one handed ODB catch animation quite a bit this year

Few things I don't like:

1. Same screen animations from last year on the scoreboards. Also, as a Giants fan, I've never seen those animations. Weren't those supposed to be 'real' images from stadiums?

2. Eli still doesn't have his all-gold captains patch.

3. Look at 0:45. The entire 0-line, and Eli, are wearing the same cleats. Uhh.

4. I just hope those catch animations have two outcomes, depending on how and when you hit the WR. They look pre-determined right now.

Pretty cool OBJ's tattoos are there, though.

EA continues to do that even though everyone knows better.

Not sure why its always called a gameplay trailer when there isnt a single second of actual gameplay footage in the videos.
Really? I saw a lot of stuff in this trailer that pretty much confirmed it wasn't CGI or anything.

Lighting seems better. Tattoos are a nice welcome.

As someone who has played a lot of Madden 16...that's in game footage.

3 ways to catch the football? Is this serious?

EA has made catching a football more complicated than drafting in CFM.

It seems that they toned down the muscle tone in the players arms. They seem much smoother and the right amount of muscle tone

QB animations still animate like the early PS3/Xbox 360 versions. Embarrassing.
 
# 15 BleedGreen710 @ 06/15/15 04:53 PM
i have a frightening gut feeling that that 1 handed catch animation is gonna be seen every game like when they added the tyree helmet catch. *shudders*

Either way, how it looks doesnt really matter to me.
No offense taken, but it wasn't me that said that.

I wouldn't be so sure about that.

I hope they have a lot more tackle animations. Definitely seen some of the stiff animations from previous Madden's.

Yeah not what i was expecting... saw part of the live video and there were words popping up above receivers heads like "aggressive" when they caught the ball. Sucks thats what they came up with, 3 approaches to catching the ball. Theyve had aggressive and posession catching before. I really thought it would be innovative and position-based to allow more control. Is this anything besides more animation-controlled gameplay? Id like to know.

$1,000,000 question

Do the CPU AI WR/DB use the different types of catches? That's all I want to know.
