EA has released some new screenshots for this years Madden NFL title.
The players' faces look accurate, but the skin tone is way off. Sucks that the exclusive license is still in effect. I might pick up Backbreaker some time this year. I'll get Madden in a bargain bin next year.
Backbreaker will definitely be more fun even if it doesn't have any real teams.
I just have to see the camera angle in BB to be sold on it...it looks awesum. even with out the NFL license I am intrested
pretty faces :o
looks like madden 2003 i mean 2004 i mean 2001 no wait...
When can they ever stop making madden? just the same thing every year except they just update their graphics and features and players over and over. I'm still going to get Backbreaker.
why would they stop making it? almost 6million people buy it every year. Just cause you don't like it, doesn't mean its not popular.
Popular doesn't count when it's the only option. Madden was the best NFL game 3 times in its life. GameDay and NFL2K were usually much better. Damn do I miss NFL2K.
After playing the Backbreaker demo I'm finally buying a Football game again ! Long live the King ESPN 2K5 !!!! You can keep that garbage EA......
Indeed 2k5 had features madden just decided to add for a long time now lol
your insane man...Backbreaker is nearly unplayable. Every game i watched people play ended in a score of 0 - 0 and total offense of like 20 yards for both teams combined. It does some things well, but I don't see it selling all that well.
It is probably going to take some getting used to. I hear that the analog stick gameplay needs a bit of tweaking, but other than that, it is a good game of football. I am waiting for the demo (rumored to be Tuesday for the PS3 and Xbox should have been Friday). So, we shall see! Either way, no Madden for me this year. I will give them another year to get their new pro-tak to be more intuitive and perhaps do something...dare I say...NEW!?!?
I picked up 2010 and I played 1 game and they I handed it to my son and never touched it again. It's one of the most milked franchises in gaming history. It's nearly identical year after year and the AI isn't even close to real football. It's just too random for me. I have yet to play the BB demo but hopefully it's more fun than what EA puts out year after year. Man I would give anything for the NFL to stop being so F'n greedy and allow others to make "licensed" football games.
I know a random guy who would love Madden ! Guess who ?
I'm not the one going to E3 with that closet gamer friend of yours, you are. LOL! He is going to go nuts when he sees this article and those new Madden screen shots.
Sigh same crap a different year. You know you buy the same game every year right with minor improvements lol.
Cant wait for this game. Gus Johnson will be one of the commentators ( Win ) I have no doubt that the COWBOYS will be the best team in it ;) Won't even be close.
WOW I just Played BackBreak Demo. Holy Crap Madden Who?????.. Madden has never received a Major update after the bought the rights to the NFL. If only there was a god to stop that Madness. Madden Would have been 2nd or 3rd tier Football by now..
*Yawn* I don't buy Madden or EA Sports games since they bought the NFL License. On a second note, I played the Backbreaker demo and hated the pass mechanic. Using the analog stick to pass is odd and the camera angle when your on offense is terrible. On defense you can tackle your own teammates and you don't switch to the nearest player to the ball, so you can get lost pretty quick with whats going on. We need the 2K series back but with the real players.
I heard that you can customize the controller to your liking. Like press A (or X) for Pass instead of using the analog stick. I love the game except the camera moves way too much when you turn a little bit
If Madden would just fix the gameplay mechanics and make it more like Backbreaker then we would have something.
I wont buy this outdated crap game...they pass off the same trash every year and change the cover. madden 2006 and 2011 hardley and difference. Boooooooooo!!! Go with backbreaker
