  1. I like that the QB AI took off and scrambled but I didn't like the tackle.

    Could you tell me the time marker of this play please? Or at least close to it.

    Wow, thats terrible

    Lol. He flopped on the ground and used his belly as a springboard to bounce back up and make the tackle. I don't see anything wrong with this?

    That's the typical bail out the user animation. Ugh
    I've had a guy dive from the DL almost immediately and sack my QB before on some similar craziness.
    Just gotta hope it's super rare
    Honestly, after watching all of these videos, I don’t see anything that would convince me to upgrade from 17. Yeah, the new lighting looks great, but what else did frostbite do?
    I may just be football ignorant, but the gameplay and animations look exactly the same, and with CFM pretty much completely untouched, is there honestly a point in buying M18? At this point I’m not really sure what the selling points are ...

    If I didn't have an awesome group of guys to enjoy online CFM with then I'd be right there with you. The CFM is great because of the team management aspect more than actually playing the game. I'm not the only one who has shared that thought, either.

    Excellent point. I’ve never been apart of a real online CFM with some dedicated guys. Could be a turning point for me if I can find one, but, as of right now I see no logical point in upgrading.
    I thought I was crazy but I started reading all the threads and I’m not the only one who shares this POV. This is one highly strange and weird feeling Madden release

    It's like the game looks well, sounds well, plays well and then eww. Some of the animations, in very key moments, are very outside of the play. That's hard to explain, but it's like the animation is dropped into the sequence of events rather than it being one fluid event.

    To be fair, I mean, this is an 'edge case,' I can argue. It's a slow QB, the dive tackle just missed, but the game read the on the ground tackler as close enough to tackle the QB. Is it pretty? No. But, as a comparison, I see plenty of odd animations in all sports games including NBA 2k series. And, from all videos I've seen now, I do believe this is the 'smoothest' running madden to date. The transitional animations are not as clunky as 17. And, the tackle physics, in general, are better. I'm seeing RBs falling forward more often and appropriately. And, seeing them fall backwards when appropriate as well.
    I'm going to hold out and buy used as more of a 'protest buy', lol, simply because I need my football fix like everyone else. But, honestly, as much as these little 'glitches' make me laugh and break immersion, they don't break the game for me. There's always going to be some slightly weird animations from time to time.

    They just can't get weather and immersion right since the start of this gen. It's raining in Miami and the officials are wearing winter gear and some sideline guys are wearing winter hats. In Miami. When it's raining.
    is it just me or does the crowd suck? several big plays from the dolphins just in the first couple minutes and there's not much reaction for any of them. check the bomb/diving catch at 3:27; i'd expect the crowd to react like that for the road team. thumbs down.

    U know, this is one of those things the team has said they would like to add for a few years now. I can't believe this wasn't in the game 10 years ago. Not trying to be that guy that says, this was in the game b4, why not now?' Because, in all reality, I don't think this has EVER been in the game. And, honestly, I just don't get it. This feels like one of those fundamental sports things. Forget football, forget basketball, forget baseball, this is something ALL sports.
    But, when u specifically look at football, I hate to say anything is easy, but cmon, just create some more excited fan reaction soundtracks, and have them play when:
    1. Score a TD
    2. Cause a TO
    3. Have a play over 30 yards
    Create negative and positive reaction soundtracks and have them play at those instances. This could be a 1st iteration thing for those 3 I listed. After u see that working, u could try to create further nuance.
    1st downs
    Goaline stands
    Etc
    The game would feel so much better with this type of addition.

    That falls under "attention to detail" in my opinion, something which Madden lacks all over the place. They keep saying stuff about not putting features in there until they can get them right but the Super Bowl entrances have the players running out of the end zone. Other team entrances have no cheerleaders or anyone else on the field, totally unrealistic. And weather as you point out is something else to add to that list.

    I agree on the case with the QB tackle. He makes sort of a stop move, making him more vulnerable to being tackled. The sequence of animation is the "eww" part.
    And I also agree with other games having animation issues. This is my first year playing The Show. I love it, and the very thought-out and relevant animations really set the game apart. However, some odd things happen. Still, the game leaves such a positive impression that I trust it will be worth my money. Thiis leads to my issue with Madden. They keep reinventing and never remain consistent. Ignite was supposed to be the next best thing. Now they are riding on the hype of Frostbyte.
    Why can't they just stay the course and make a game that consistently instills trust in the buyer?

    After watching  multiple gameplay videos so far this year on all three modes (arcade, simulation, competitive), I've decided that what I've seen so far isn't worth an upgrade for $60. I'll be either not buying or buying later after release with a ton of feedback from sim users on OS that the game is a substantial improvement over M17, which felt like a let down to me after the patches changed the way the game played OOTB.
    Yeah... i am kind of with you all. I am not really seeing much of a difference between 17 and 18. Admittedly, I don't know anything about Frostbite and all of that, but when I see these videos, I am not just seeing it. If you're going to make a big deal about updating to a new engine, then I should be able to see what the fuss is about.

    amazing how all these 'new' engines only ever affect lighting and nothing else. literally a spit polish on shoes with worn out soles.
    To me the tackle should have or should say could have been made.
    Where the player landed was right on top of where Moore's right foot was. the contact should have been made IMO. The issue is the transition from contact to take down and the warp to the tackle animation the game decided.
    I recall in the past I think it was Ian saying that there was an abundance of animations in the library that just don't get called to play out. Im sure they have to have captured a diving shoestring tackle. Where is it?
    So what has Madden 18 done differently from 17? Added comp, arcade and sim under the EA logo, added fireworks, and lame intros. They still haven't fixed bad animations, or anything else significant. Every game whether, sim, arcade or competitive, looks like it plays out the same. What was the big hype about a new engine?? Slight lighting improvements?? I'm sorry but as a lifelong Madden player who spends my hard earned cash year after year, I'm putting this one off until Black Friday deals. Seriously, EA? So disappointed. They don't care about the loyal customers. Same recycled trash year after year.
    When they first announced frostbite I was so exited. After watching all these videos and reading some of the comments,  I am finally giving up on Madden.  Same shit every year! from EA. 
    I am so disappointed in Madden, man. I thought they was heading in a good direction last year and started believing in some of these new guys.
    I was SUPER excited about Madden 18. After watching videos, it killed my excitement immediately. This game looks and seems to play just like 17, if not worse.
    I don't know the ins and outs about the NFL license but why does the NFL want the license exclusive? Wouldn't they make more money by giving companies like 2K the rights as well? I am sure NFL 2K, especially 2K18 would've been bringing in a lot of money.
    It's just little things w/ 2K that I am sure they would've done that changes the game. As popular as Zeke is, I am sure something as small as Zeke getting a first down and doing the "Feed Me" celebration would've made it in the game. From what I've seen, he doesn't do that. Small but also big.
    Cmon EA. You're the only football game out here. I really need y'all to step it up. It's sad.

    Can't really blame EA for the NFL choosing them to give exclusivity to. The NFL made a stupid call there and continues to allow EA to have a monopoly, which hurts all of us in the end, due to not only the quality of the game, but also the fact that there is no other option for NFL gaming. Having 2K get the rights to making a game would at the very least improve the quality of Madden and keep them from making such minimal improvements year after year.
