Dibbs on the Atlanta Thunderbirds...
Found this little snippet on the Walmart.com website regarding the pending All Pro Football release date:
Preorder this item today and it should ship on...
wait for the 2K series to come back. I guess this is a step in the right direction. Funk Madden...
Those that curse madden, are the ones that suck at it. Maddens all about playcalling, timing, and gameplay. True madden players never play linemen, roam the secondary with a safety, its fun.
I've been playing Sports games since when Genesis made sports games great. Madden I just never liked. The play models were too small. The running game is poor.
When I got my dreamcast in 99, the 2K sport series put a fear in EA, and look at what they did. They got Scuuured, and bought out the NFL lisence for 5 years. What game ever put you right inside the helment? Something different atleast.
Tried to do the same with NHL and NBA but we all know which one of those game are better.
NFL 2K was about to take over. That's why I hated EA for buying out the competition. I know it goes on everywhere but that's how I seen it.
2K series will rule in NFL you'll see. This is a good step, that means they are not dead.
Yeah i had genesis too, Joe Montana football was the best. Also nothing beats madden 93..nothing. I can see your point about buying the competition, that was not a good thing, only made madden stagnate, althought they have brought a little something new each time. NFK 2K, always seemed too.. well too cartoony, too fake. It was so easy to run, I'd break off 20-30 yard runs so easily. The real NFL isnt like that. Having a 3 yard Avg is good, a 4 yd average is great. I mean in real life you're gonna get stuffed at the line sometimes, its part of the game. QB vsion, Hit Stick, Truck Stick, when you practice and get good, Madden becomes an amazing game. Its so fun when you can actually see a play developing as a safety, and just know they are gonna throw it there, and pick it off, such a nice feeling. Seriously, its all about the playcalling, like in real life. You call the wrong play against the wrong defence, well its gonna blow up, like in real life. Every single play has a counter, I don't care who you are. Yeah there are some players that use gimmic plays (only a handful of plays a game), and glitches, but if you know how to counter those, it all works out in the end. I do wish 2K would get back into the game though, take all the scrubs off madden online, haha j/k.
I loved NFL 2K5!
I'll definitely pick up this gem. If M$ will ever get off their political butt and make 2k5 backward compatible, I'd buy that too. As for EA's football games this year, I'll be voting no with my wallet--too little innovation, etc. gCM
anyone have any yet? game pictures... stuff like that?
please be 60 frames per second online!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
let us Edit the names of the players
Please have a great half time show
Basketball, Hockey, are better done in the 2K series. Football, Baseball (when they had it) are better done by EA.
I see the good in this, cause this will make madden dev. team add improvements to the game instead of the "fixes" they seem to add year after year. This year it will interesting to see what exactly 2k can do with football on new hardware since they have been out of the game for about 3 years.
Best of the Best:
Soccer: Winning Eleven Series/ Red Card if you're old-school
Football: NFL Blitz (madden's SO overrated)
Tennis: Top Spin
Hockey: who cares???
Basketball: NBA Hoopz!!!
Baseball: MLB...or Slugfest if you're an arcade type of gamer.
I think we need a next-gen BADMINTON!!! That would be a freakin' SWEET GAME! I want Midway/Epic to make it too. It would be gory AND fun!!! <Like GOW!
Outside of soccer and tennis game you named some the worst sport arcade franchises to ever see the light of day.
NFL blitz was fun back in 96 when it first came out, slugfest was forgetable at best, NBA hoopz, please. I'll give you MLB cause they have put a story into a sim game and made it great.
The real rundown to any real sport gamers go as followed.
Soccer: Winning Eleven Series ( but in america nobody cares)
Football: Madden or 2k pick your poison
Tennis: Top Spin
Hockey: NHL 2k7
Basketball: NBA 2K7
Baseball: MLB 07: the show
These are the games real sport gamers play.
Bull vs Lakers Basketball... Tommy Lasorda Baseball.. ahhhh i miss my Genesis
I grab 2k3 to try it out and was hooked. I turned a few die hard Madden fans at the barracks. In turn every beat me to NCAA College football 2k3. Then everybody starting getting other 2k games. Can't wait to see what All-Pro Football 2k8 is all about.
I can finally enjoy football again. Tried Madden and it was straight HORRIBLE!!!!
Funny how Madden fans can turn to 2K fans but never the other way around. That's how you can prove which game is better.
that is a really good point. your right, i have never heard of some one saying they picked up a copy of madden and will never go back to 2k...it is always the other way around...never thought about it before...i am sure there is some one out there but i have never witnessed it before.
yes! can't wait. i was all madden forever. but i started getting sick of paying for the same game every year and decided to skip 2005 football games all together...but when 2k5 was announced to be only $20.00 i said what the hell, i will give it a shot.
i could not believe the difference. i have not bought a football game since...i can't wait to play a football game again...thanks 2k
back in the day...when EA approached madden on a train(i guess the madden bus wasn't conceived yet)to endorse their football game...he actually turned them down because it was not authentic enough. they went back to the drawing board and tried to go 100% authentic...that little interaction with madden set in motion EA's sports teams to make all sports games authentic...those were the hay days and when EA made good games...i miss the old EA...you guys remember those days:(
