Make It So: What I Want In Madden 15

Twinfinite writes: "After watching the amazing playoffs matchups this past Sunday (SUCK IT PATRIOTS!!!), I had a sudden urge to go play Madden and put a championship team together from the ground up. As much as I enjoy all the front office wheeling and dealing in sports games, the thought of struggling through the Career mode in Madden 25 turned me off almost immediately. I’ve already laid out my thoughts on Madden 25 in my review, but I started thinking of what I would want in the next entry in the Madden series." (3DS, Android, iPhone, Madden 25, PS Vita, PS3, PS4, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

There is no way a little guy would go through the Seahawks D like that

I'll keep saying it until it happens, and won't buy it until it happens:

1) CPU vs CPU in offline franchise mode
2) Bring back potential-based progression (or, at least make it an option)
3) Custom soundtrack

Can't you do CPU vs CPU in offline franchise mode? I'm pretty sure you can do that in PS4/Xbox One versions of 25. I haven't played the PS3/360 versions of 25 so I don't know about them.

Nope. Only in exhibition mode.

Madden is a mere shell of its former self, bring back NFL2K football and you get everything in the game that's supposed to be there from the beginning......not added later and presented as a new feature, a pattern that EA has been doing with madden for years.
Rainstorm81  +   673d ago
...or a feature that was in a previous madden now re-added and called "AMAZING" and "NEW"

+bub well said

Just like the o-line play in madden25 being presented as a new feature, i'm like seriously ??

That was in NFL2K5 years ago, i swear EA sports is still living in the stone age in this next gen.

I think we will hear of NFL 2K coming back soon , the exclusive license is set to expire a day after the Super Bowl which EA hasn't signed an extension and according to some sources is the Take2 which is the parent company that owns 2K sports are about to make an offer to the NFLPA that can't be refused . George Atallah is the assistant executive director of external affairs for the National Football League Players Association and he says that if a company approach the NFLPA with a good offer then they're obligated to open up the license ..... Which I said earlier that Take2 will submit an offer that can't be refused , 2K Football is coming dude and it will be NFL 2K16

@sub zero

I think we'll see a 2K football game this year, 2K isn't going to wait and extra year only to lose ground to EA when finally getting back to making a new football game....after the amazing response and praise they got from NBA2K14 they're on a roll and best believe waiting to strike to show what work in progress they've done or have ready for 2K15.

a owner mode that let'e me control every aspect of the team. Moving the team to another city, make signing free agents more important. building new stadium

ESPN sports center



Side lines less dead please, have better crowds and much better stadium atmosphere

So you want fluff? They need to focus on gameplay first.
Rainstorm81  +   673d ago
They need the full package its 2014!!!

2K5 had some of these things back in 04 on Xbox!!

Why buy up every football related license if you arent going to use them? Tweets is what we got instead SMH

the gameplay is most important but a real simulation football feel in all aspects should be aimed for....with the NFL Network and ESPN licenses you would think the commentary would rival NBA2k series, we should have thursday night and monday night presentations with different sportcasters.

Instead no Chris Berman no Rich Eisen no Mel Kiper and we get CBS commentary team,doesnt make sense......the Presentation needs a generational leap that wasnt made last gen

...and i faithfully play Madden BTW


....or how about the NCAA license we shouldve gotten much much more from the combo of EA/NCAA/NFL/ESPN...i was very optimistic when they got these licenses and they failed us Football fans and gamers....there was so little progression in Madden last gen that it was criminal...it wasn't until towards the end when they seem like they started actually working on the game.....sad really

You have people playing NBA2kthat arent basketball fans just because of quality, i hope Madden return to that form

i want the best gameplay but i also want the best possible presentation. if 2k could achieve all that back in 2004-2005 why can't EA do the same with next-next gen tech on ps4 and xbox one
DEAD-DEVIL-DISCO  +   672d ago
even if they put all that stuff in it would be halfass done.
showtimefolks  +   673d ago
also off topic:

EA could you work on bring back MVP Baseball

the show vs MVP baseball could be great for baseball fans.
Dojan123  +   673d ago
Still wish this was also on the PC so I could play on my laptop when traveling.

This is a "next-gen" game that shows flags at the top of the stadium that don't even wave. A game where the sideline players are the same from PS2. Speaking of PS2, why do they have the same in-game music from Madden 08?? Boom Boom Pow and Crazy Train...you can not be serious.

How about fixing the commentary? I win a game with 0 INT and this idiot Phil Simms says I lost and played horrible. Or how about every single play I call is horrible per Simms. In order to have a somewhat interesting game, I have to jack QB accuracy all the way up.

The only football that really challenged me was NFL 2K. Still several years later, a game released in 2004 is better than any current EA title. I pray this license comes to an end and 2k gets back into the football arena
Akuma2K  +   673d ago
Your right about 2K football challenging you because every matchup is a nail biter but enjoyable and fun, the gameplay experience feels alive because you truly feel like your part of the game.

The license ends right after the superbowl in 2 weeks, 2K will be making an offer to the NFL to make licensed football games again immediately after the game is over and a conference call will be made and we'll know if NFL2K15 will return this year.

you know if people quit buying madden they wouldnt pay that much money for the license. its simple. but also hard if you love football. i stayed in the top 1000 easily in 2k5 on xboxlive back in the day. belive me its been a long decade without 2k. im gonna hit me knees and say a prayer after the superbowl
