wow those running animations are terrible. When have you seen a skill position player run like that? He is swinging his arms like he is a 5 year old kid playing tag in the back yard.

That spot where AB bounced of Carter while he was still engaged in a block looked sweet.

I changed your title for you so the thread topic is more clear. The animation looked roughly the same to me. Let's also hope an infrequently used move like the hurdle isn't overpowered.

Needs a huge overhaul, I still don't know why some players still look like they are running and shuffling sideways at the same time

Nice to see this being displayed on a return, hopefully it was the CPU doing it, I thought the hurdle looked good.

Yeah, that looked really bad and was the first thing I noticed. It looked like the type of animation you should see when a player is exhausted.

Yeah those running animations are weird. The arm swinging is really off-putting. I hope maybe that will be different in retail. The hurdle did look good though.

hurdle looked quite nice.

but my god...we need a major overhaul on running animations. It looks so unnatural.

Can the game changers please pressure the devs to clean up the running motions because humans don't run like that with their arms swinging in that motion. If fixed I would so purchase the game as a first day buy.

The running animation looks bad. The hurdle was nice though.

One hurdle video and you make this assessment. Now that's smh.

Hopefully soon.

I just looked at the juke video again and the running animations were much better. The arms weren't flying up like in the hurdle video. So that leaves some questions.

Maybe they have different animations based on player types? Doug Martin being a smaller, compact player vs. AB who is lenky.

I hope the Hurdle works differently, dont think ive ever pulled off a successful one yet and maybe gotten a few fumbles from it
 
# 17 PVarck31 @ 05/26/16 08:52 PM
Maybe JP can find out something on twitter about the running animations.
 
# 18 Crunky @ 05/26/16 09:00 PM
The running motion reminds me of Woody from Toy Story.

Hurdles are nothing new
 
# 20 apollon42 @ 05/26/16 09:07 PM
The problem I have is are we going to see 7 hurdles a game like that Odell Beckham catch last year? Or that David Tyree catch that was in the game forever. There may be like 5 players to get hurdled in an entire season. But I have a feeling it's going to happen all the time.
