UGH!!! Not ANYWHERE as good as 09

#1 Posted by MushroomStamp (22 posts) -

 NO F'N WAY!! This game is 8.0 AT BEST. It's so much worse than last years on so many levels. The graphics are not better, the intentional slowing down of the game (yes they even tell you they did this on pupose during the loading screens) will drum you to sleep. The control isn't as good as last year.. it's all around WORSE than last year.    Last year I felt it was the tightest best football game i've ever played. This year, apart from  a few new animations, you will find NOTHING that is better than last year.

And how have you played this already?
 
P.S. The hint of troll is amazing.

If 09 was a tight football game I'd recommend playing 2k5/2k8 or Madden 2005.   Huge problems with 09:
 
1.  Defensive Lines were essentially useless.  They served no purpose.
2.  QBs never missed a single pass, always accurate.
3.  DBs warped 4 feet in the air to swat down passes.
4.  Superstar and Franchise mode were broken with terrible trade/draft logic.
5.  Progression was a joke.
6.  Presentation stunk, the entire game lacked any sort of flare.
 
Just from playing the demo 1-3 are fixed which are game changers.

GO MADDEN! How did you get this early?

#8 Posted by JamesF (1489 posts) -

Haha, THIS GAME IS AN 8.0. I HAVEN'T PLAYED THE WHOLE GAME YET, JUST THE DEMO, BUT SERIOUSLY YOU GUYS, IT CAN ONLY BE AN 8.0! I PLAYED THE FREAKIN DEMO!!

#9 Posted by CL60 (16906 posts) -

All reviewers should just play the demo of games then write up the review.

I love how people hate on Madden.  
Its like the guys who swear The Dark Knight sucked.

@MushroomStamp:  I think the slower animations are suppose to be more realistic. The animations in 09 may, or may not have made the game more fun--I can't judge, I only played each game briefly--but I think The whole point of Madden these days is to be a strait up Football simulation. That means the more realistic the better, so I welcome the changes. I played the demo and it seems fine to me, then again I'm no Madden expert.

@MushroomStamp:  
 
Unless you have the full game saying you will find "NOTHING" but then last year seems a little broad considering you probably only played a demo.
#15 Posted by waleovechkin301 (20 posts) -

i personally liked 08 more than 09. 04 was always my favorite tho. especially vick's complete dominance of everyone in that game. the best video game football player since bo jackson in tecmo bowl.

#16 Edited by MushroomStamp (22 posts) -

Ummm.. no.. I have the game, not the demo.. .look at my achievement list, you'll even see it listed. Albeit without achievments yet, however, if it was JUST THE DEMO it wouldn't even be listed.   I found 10 slower and less fun. I also found the graphics to be the same ol same ol.. it's not just me either, I had 3 friends over and NONE of us were impressed at all.  
 
Sure are a lot of Haters in here.. Stop drinking the Kool-aid and being jealous of people that get games early.  Especially when people dont' agree with your devotion to a franchise.  all 4 of us that played it felt they are sacrificing fun for Realism. Imagine a a racing game that actually simulated real speed (sans blur effects).. you would be bored.... Madden 10 is just .. well.. EH

#17 Posted by bretthancock (778 posts) -
@MushroomStamp: I'm not devoted to Madden but love football games and have played them all sense 2004.  This year's Madden is the best yet on a next gen console.  The only critique you have of the game is that it's slower(which can be adjusted) and that the graphics aren't as good.  Trust me, we aren't jealous that you got the game early, we are annoyed that you aren't making any lgoical argument.

First thing I thought of as well.  There's a definitely a lot of that out there.

^^ I know reviews aren't everything but those are about as high of review numbers I've seen compiling up for any football game in my recent memory. How "bad" can this game really be?
#19 Posted by bretthancock (778 posts) -

In all honesty I don't really focus on or care about the graphics in the game.  It looks similar to 09 to me and while I'm sure they are better the gameplay has captivated me much more.

#20 Posted by addictedtopinescent (3645 posts) -

yeah well 
Blitz is the solution bro

#21 Posted by MushroomStamp (22 posts) -

It's not aweful.. it's just not as good as last year. Maybe it's the pacing. maybe it's the fact there really aren't any significant changes from last year. My point is that if you have last years, you DEFINELY don't need this years. I still NFL2k had the best passing in any football game.. you could aim your throw to the left/ right/over/under... madden you can't see that a corner is over the top of your guy, and throw it on the opposite side of the coverage.  You have basic passing control with lob or zip.. but I want to place exactly in the opposite direction of cover.. 2k did it and will always bash Madden on this point until they learn Sims are great but if you want to sim everything... I should have the ability to place the ball where I want it  and then force my receiver to go where I throw the ball. Also stop havin the AI Cheat with speed.. I was a full 5 yards ahead of a corner with Chambers and was caught from behind, yet I couldn't catch up to a screen to Gonzales. I tried 4 different runnings backs and it's hard as hell getting through the line or around... it's just TOO SLOW.

Hahaha, if you did have the game your retarded and trolling ass would know you can set the pace of the game to be like last years!  They have been touting this feature but the ability to turn it off as well.  Get the fuck out of here. 
NFL 2k should come back, fucking EA and their anticompetitive practices.  NFL2k5 is still remembered as the best football game of all time.  And it came out at 20 bucks.  Thats what all sports games should come out at since they sell so much and dont do anything new, but lots of retards are willing to pay 60 bucks for a roster update and new features that no one will ever use or features that should have been in there a long time ago.  Remember when online leagues hit madden, but in NFL 2k they had been around 3 years before?  Yeah, I bet you do.

Well jackass, all you have to do is look at the games played on Live and you will see it. So stop applying your jackass'd fuckd logic to shit you don't know anything about.... I play games, I don't listen to publishers and features they brag about.. I didn't know it was adjustable.. and it's not like they advertise on the screens "Hey, is the game retardedly slow and boring for you, jack up the spped".. you're fucking idiot!

#25 Posted by TwoOneFive (9459 posts) -

okay i've played it and yeah. this is the best football i've ever played. fuck the haters. 

#26 Posted by Ryu (382 posts) -

So what you want a football game that isn't like real football? I think that might be your problem.
#27 Posted by MushroomStamp (22 posts) -

There are SOOOO many variations that go into "real Football" that will never make it into the game. I'm just saying the choice of what aspects that go into should be considered more carefully.  Making the game slow doesn't make it more real as they claim as I have already given examples of how unrealistic the players handle and react.  That game is a good football game.. I'm repeating AGAIN... it's just not worth the money if you have last years. Which is the whole reason I started this post was to warm people so they don't waste their money to find out that it's really the same as last year. Save the money not enough innovation to warrant your cash, especially with other games starting to come out (finally, long dry summer).

#28 Posted by bretthancock (778 posts) -

Yet you fail to list any of these innovations that are lacking.
 
The players reactions may not be perfect, but to say that the twitchy gameplay of the last few years has returned is wrong.  Their is actually a weight and momentum to running this year that has never been in Madden before.

Not a troll.. and for once Gamespot actually posted an accurate review of the game giving it 7.5... Credance to my claim.. it's just not that good and definetly not worth the purchase if you have 09

Are you abused? Chill the fuck out. And you should probably work on grammar when calling other people idiot. That is just me though.
#33 Posted by KaosAngel (13765 posts) -

is it as good as 2k5?

Yes one review out of the ~20 that have come out completely validates your claim.  Plus we all know how highly Gamespot is regarded around these parts.

@MushroomStamp:  You sir a an idiot. 
 
And to everyone else I apologize for encouraging the troll.
#36 Posted by MushroomStamp (22 posts) -

Kiss my ass.. I came on here  and stated an opinion. You jump all over me because it doesn't agree with your preconceived notion. You immediately bash and assume someone is a troll and lie. Where as, if you read my posts, I have already explained this and will explain it again for you, since you can't read or comprehend shit.  Look at my Games Played list  and you will see it.. it's THAT SIMPLE! even your brain in its limited capacity can understand that. So with PROOF in your face, you still proceed to call me a troll. You instigated this crap by jumping to conclusions and having the inability to comprehend what I have posted several times.  You sir are a retard.

@MushroomStamp:    Don't get me into a "sir" calling match, sir.
