After the release of NaturalMotion's Backbreaker trailer, many people have been calling it "The Madden Killer". Which now brings me to ask, What is EA Sports going to do about it?
lol backbreaker does look good,but its not going to beat madden 10.
Same as every year, but we have no other choice. Its not like I can just get a roster update for this years game. I wish
They had online franchise last year??
i dont see the point of making a football game every year. nothing ever changes besides stats and i guess new rookie players, but they really dont even change that much. they should make a game were the new stats and rookies are DLC because dropping another 60 bucks just so your favorite player can run 5% faster in the new game just seems retarded.
I know, its a mistake I won't ever forget, but the reason why I did it is a whole other story >_>
ever since they changed the gameplay madden has sucked to me. the ps2 days omg madden was a blast me an my friends would do whole tournements all night but when this new madden gameplay its just been horrific. right now i cant stand madden they need to stop making it a everyyear thing and change it to every 2 years and do a MAJOR UPDATE the year in between. In conclusion F*CK MADDEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What did they change about Madden? You still go for homeruns and loop-de-loops around the whos-dinger, and try and do an alley-oop before the buzzer... Right?
if madden has Trophies it will actaully be fun playing it id be intrested to see what type of trophies would be in madden.
Madden will never die ever. If the contract is up and EA and madden decide to part ways that's the only way you will see the franchise fade out. Madden will most likely be around and be the top selling football game for another decade.
Yep.. and it's a shame too. Madden having the NFL license exclusively basically guarantees it won't die or evolve beyond what Madden '05 essentially was. Here's hoping that Backbreaker can make a football game right. Oh and on a side note, did HHG actually post a non-controversial article? Crazy....
........drum roll..... receivers & running backs running out of bounds on screens! Ahhh cant wait! Buying for ps3 really got shafted when i canceled my live account this year...
Yea cause cause true fans of NFL football are not going to want to continue playing a game with fake teams and no named players. The NFL licensing rights mean everything and EA has them secured. Madden may not have the best gameplay but its Authentic.
Which honestly sucks, because no one wants to play either game. Play the good game with the fake players or the crappy game with the real players? Both options suck and as far as videogame football is concerned, I'm not going to play it again until it gets reviews back above 9.4. Enough with this mediocrity, it isn't worth even $30 anymore. I used to shell out for the regular roster updates each year but I just laugh at anyone who thinks this game compares to the golden age of Madden.
If they buy madden every year they are likely to be buying 1 or 2 othere sports games as well every year. i mean I got some friends who buy madden and basketball and baseball or hockey. thats a lot of money to have the same game every year. but mlb 09 the show is the only sports game worth buying every year. its the best and gameplay is the best as well as graphics and everything else.
the worst thing about madden is that it actually somehow gets worse every year and they NEVER fix the bugs and glitches. You can set a clock on madden, exactly 10-14 days after it comes out you will have a hard time playing a fair game against someone else because everyone finds the bugs and glitches by then and starts cheating, and EA never fixes them.
Just stick with the previous gen Maddens if you want a decent one to play. I bought last year's for PS3 (after they finally gave it 60fps) but it still sucks. They need competition to make the game better but instead they extend the contract to keep out the competition. The NFL should know better, because if a game sucks for a few years in a row it will continue to suck. If it weren't for the reputation (which EA is slowly killing) of Madden, this game would be laughed off the field.
I dunno , i'm not really knowledgeable about madden , like most european . But look at PES , it managed just fine without licenses and a simple editor (and fan made patches) to make up for the licences . Ok PES 09 (and 08) are under heavy critics , and deserved ones , but it got more to do with the game itself , and it's lack of evolution than licences . Even if the sports are differents , i'd bet most fans would switch to a better game , if there is a great gap of quality between them .
sure there are things that could be better but i like madden games. if you guys dont like the game then dont play it, better yet sit there at your computers and read some code and make your own football game. bet ya cant! get off the madden b**** wagon and do something. madden is a good playable football sim.
i agree if u tired of madden then dont buy but for the tru fans keep supporting the game only thing i hate is paying 60 dollars for a game at least half the price or something
