I preordered it so I need to go pick up a 5 minute demo code tomorrow.
in for hearing about it, too lazy to download. Need to find out if i'm buying NCAA or madden this year (I pick 1 per year only)
NCAA is fucking awesome. Much improved AI from what i played.
Anyone else going to join the elite? I'll crush you all on all-madden
Glitchy, unpolished, and no commentary.
Get to play as giants vs cowboys in 1 minute quarters in the snow.
yeah it sucks.
it's almost a completely different game though. and i fucking HATE this new 3-5 step drop system. i get sacked before i can even control my QB!!!!
No commentary is to save on the download size.
If you preordered the game from Gamestop you get to download a special version that is last year's Super Bowl with 5 minute quarters.
I am liking this years version, the game looks completely different from last year...pulling guards actually find the hole and go through it to block
I am liking the forced drop backs because last year online all people would do is hike the ball and run straight to the sideline so they had all day to pass the ball, this is trying to prevent that.
Graphics look great imo, much improved over last year and the stat overlays/presentation is much better. No commentary in the 5 minute quarters demo either, but oh well.
As soon as Madden comes out, NCAA is going back to gamestop.
I am on PS3 btw
the demo on xbl is pretty worthless. the demo from preordered gives a much better feel. i enjoyed it. i didnt play the whole game. just the first half. but im gonna have another go this weekend
i really like the presentation so far from what ive seen. overlays and the way they show all the stats are pretty
Game looks good, but ill have to see the final to make any assumptions as to if it really adds anything other than a fresh coat of paint and new rosters from last year.
But during the demo they kept showing shit at the bottom they added, like a week wrap up ( 2k5 did this ) and the interactive dogpile fumble shit ( looking forward to this ) and selecting another tackler after youve begun a gang tackle and your engaged.
The sidelines looked more busy which is great, but the crowd looked like shit ( not that big of a deal but im sure they could do something ).
I hope the commentary is revamped, and i like that the game has been slowed down ( 5 minute quarters scoring as many or more points than an actual nfl game has always been a peeve of mine.. they should be able to scale it ).
The stat overlay shit was cool, but i want to see more. I also want to see the running game as last year it was hit or miss, and or course the AI pass coverage .
Every year i get excited about this game because i love football then when it comes out i get let down because there hasnt been any major renovations when there really is SO much they could do with it.
I like NCAA but they seem to be lacking in presentation as always.
I was doing the career mode or whatever and ended up playing in a bowl game. They kept the PA announcer from the high school games. At least they show highlights during the break between seasons though.
It's a shame that EA secured the ESPN license and hardly does anything with it.
At least they could of put it in the new cowboys stadium.
Some of the ticker statements on what the game offers sounded cool, but imho the jury is still out till i play the full game.
I agree. This is one thing that a 5 year old game still pwns ea at ( nfl2k )
I mean where are the espn-ism ( he must be butter because hes on a roll ), the espn commentators ( stewart scott would be great color commentary ), overlays, ticker updates, sounds! ( duh-da-duh, duh-da-duh like in 2k5 ).
I hope however that what i read playing the brief demo of madden that they will have the week wrap up and use lots of espn shit.
Plus i want to see what the whole interactive fumble shit is.
I loved having NFL2K5 installed on my ps2 hard drive. It was pretty awesome to see some of my plays in a Sportscenter clip. It's sad that's been 5 years later and the closest they've come to that is the end of season clip in NCAA 10.
you sir fucking KICK ASS.
