I've played 2 games so far and a few things are bothering me:

1. When playing Defense and the CPU tosses a pass to a receiver behind the line of scrimmage, it is ****ing bullshit that they juke and run STRAIGHT out of bounds if you have a decent position on them. This happens way too often.

2. Where are the AI sliders?

I haven't played a game online yet but it's gonna happen tonight.

I would never expect you to pick a team, that doesn't give you an instant advantage.

I'm 2-0 in online play, with wins coming against Denver, and SD, and they are two of the most joyless wins in Madden I have ever had because the game sucks Boaws.

The views, and camera angles are horrible. Especially on receptions. The rubbing off defenders, and jumpy screens just make it an overall "Meh" experience.

I would hope not. That Madden IQ was implemented wrong. That test doesnt prove a freaking thing. Having a perfect score in that does not mean your good at the game. It just means you can hit the button when it tells you to.

Well, you're better off skipping it to begin with and let each individual game determine your IQ. Basically, start at the 500 and move it up (heh, or down) by playing your first game on All Madden, and then immediately switching to your own level. That's what I did and it's been pretty good IMO.

<!-- message -->The pass D in this game is atrocious. Combined with the super accurate CPU QBs and the fact that olines still don't block result in gameplay that is just flat out broken. Typical from EA though, they would rather focus on flashy ideas that they can market like the Madden IQ (which is also broken) then actually build a game engine that results in quality gameplay. NHL is the only quality sports title they make.

The animations in this game are godawful. I cannot count how many times I've had defenders literally reach THROUGH my receivers, then pull the ball back through them, to pick off the ball.

Some of the worst I've ever seen. I think 08 was better visually. A still shot may look better, but I like fluid actiod. NCAA is the best game I've seen.

NCAA has the worst AI of any game I have ever played. It is next to impossible to play defense. I'm hoping the patch in September addresses that and it will be a great game. Both games have their flaws but Madden is much better in my opinion. I like having to grind away rather than having a 35-31 shootout evey game. I'm not arguing with you though. Everyone has their likes and dislikes. As much as you have ripped the game though, I have no idea why you would want to play a season on such an atrocious game.

I know, I know. I'm just in love with on-line football, and I guess am overly critical of the game. (after all it's just a video game right?)I just played a game against the Bucs, and lost 13-10.
I was on the 5 when time expired on me. I'm actually warming up to this game, and am enjoying it a little more. Getting used to it i guess. There are, and always were a lot of things I like about it. Including the control over DLmen, and the footwork of the QB.

I'm glad you are starting to enjoy it. I'm not saying it's perfect but i have had a lot of fun playing it so far. That's all I can really ask for. The good thing about the new gen video games are the patches. We can always hope for improvements. I think the game looks awesome myself but I have only played 4 online games so far. I have noticed a few of things things you and peanut have brought up at times but only here and there. It's not taking away from the fun for me so far though. The league should be really good.

I played 1 1/2 online games (lost connection) and have yet to score points. I can't run the ball online to save my life. Some cheeser scrambled to the far right and threw a 50 yard bomb across field and completed it. Pissed me off.

See, that's what you get with all of that high end, ultra-fancy graphics stuff with your PS3s and 360s. Those of us with the Wii don't have to see that kind of stuff, we just have to actually push the remote forward to pass and pull both back to us to make a catch, it's so much more work (last night I had to quit early 'cause I was getting so tired).

The good thing about the new gen video games are the patches. We can always hope for improvements.

patches are the worst thing about next gen games. instead of using patches to deliver additional content, developers use it as a crutch. there's no need for play testing when your entire customer base will do it for free. not too mention that patches take forever. you can go on hoping for improvements, I'd rather buy a game that functions well when I open it.

The imported draft was hells of messed up, with like 7-10 QBs going in the first round, but at least it's not as awful as NFL 2k5's "QB DE HB OT" problem, wherein only those positions were picked in the entire first round.

Oh, and I got James Laurinaitis in the second round, and he's an 88 overall. I'm not complaining.

They really need to fix that from happening. It's nice when you can get those people on your team like that but it's not freaking realistic. I can remember drafting a MLB in Madden 2006...in the 5th round and he came out as a 86 overall with 88 speed. Come on....really? 31 other teams passed up on this kid for 5 rounds?

I was tanking the season just in the hopes of being high enough to draft the guy, and then he was rated so low for the draft that I risked him falling. He did.

I'm just pretending that Laurinaitis was #5 and Cantwell (82) was #37. It'll help me sleep better at night, you know.

Got it today.
Got through the Madden IQ and jumped straight into the franchise with the Chiefs. Have played 3 games going 0-3. 17-10, 21-0, 10-3.

Some thoughts: I haven't played Madden since 05 and the old console. Still trying to learn controls on the fly compared to what "I'm used to". Thought I was decent against the Pat's. Having extreme difficulties on offense(can't tell if it's me or the team) and OK on defense except for the big play(definitely me).

I absolutely hate online. Recievers always stopping to catch a crossing pattern. Punt returners won't fair catch it, causing a fumble. I have scored 7 points in 14 quarters. I must really suck. Players just throw it up 30 yards downfield and there is a huge chance there will be a PI call.

The jumping animation for #83 was simply atrocious. What garbage.I was more disgusted by the offensive line than anything. Although the catching animation on the second video is godawful.

I'm sure one of my friends will buy the game, so I'll be able to play it and form a solid opinion, but I have NCAA, and I don't think the animations look that bad...

although they may.

Say, is Chris Manderino horrible for anyone else?

He's the only FB I have so I'm stuck for now, but geesh. The guy can't run with the ball and, obviously can't block either. I'm playing the Pats and it's 3rd and 4 around to 20 yard line. LJ's running strong the whole drive. I call a run left to the outside, the entire D shifts right save one defender. Manderino is out in front of me (I'm playing LJ) I slow up to let him block the guy and, no joke, he steps back out of the way of the defender that's running towards me and lets me get creamed behind the LOS.

I sure hope he's not as bad in real life as what he has been on my console.

NCAA is just too slow with it's gameplay. I've always HATED that game, not because of the animations or anything else, just because of the gameplay.

EA will and has been behind 2k in animations for a while, but i do think Madden is a decent game. I like it more then the NCAA demo thats for sure. What i dont like is the play books are so limited. I guess coming from APF where you had 500 or so plays will do that.

Going to play some more after some olympics. I am almost ready to go online. Just getting used of all the presnap features. Takes some getting used off. Almost there. The Chiefs have a good offense for quick plays. 3 star players on offense is nice.

I have my custom settings. My offense is All-pro or better and my D is Pro.

Just kicked the shit out of the Pats on their home turf. No sacks but someone was always in Brady's face to force 3 INT's. Final score 27-7

And DJ is a beast on the run defense.

I will admit that the Pats got a good chunk of yards by just throwing under and into the middle of the field. (I generally play cover 2 or 2 man under. And if I blitz it's a zone blitz.)

I'm getting used to the game for this year.

I love having the line shift option back, but I miss being able to jump the line of scrimmage like last years to get that slight edge on the DL pass rush.

Wow, just got done beating the Patriots. I am the Chargers of Course. Here's how the game went.

I kickoff to the Patriots, they drive down the field in 1:30 and score a TD

They Kickoff to me, and I run all over them with LT, and eventually put the ball in the endzone with a screen pass to LT. Time of Possesion 5:40

I kickoff to them, on their first play I User Pick it w/ Cromartie, and I'm setup on their 28.

After 2 runs for a total of 1 yard, I go to Gates through the air, he breaks a tackle, TD. Time of Possesion 1:30

I kickoff to them, on their first play I user pick it w/ Clinton Hart. I get a first down, but fail to put it in, kick a FG, 17-7 at Half.

The second half I didn't do anything offense wise, save a couple 1st downs.

On their first drive, they got an 80 yard TD pass to Randy Moss, making it 17-14.

On their next drive, they drive down to about my 40, then I pick it w/ Matt Wilhelm, and run out the clock. They got one last drive with about 20 seconds left, but couldn't do anything.

I won 17-14.

Well you can go to them pre-play, but I wouldn't recommend it.

I did this by switching to the corner after the pass was thrown, and I got into the proper position.

Its easier to intercept if you hold Triangle (or Y on Xbox Im assuming) than if you just tap it.

Played my oldest daughter tonight. Her knowledge of football consists of when the band goes out on the field and how to read the scoreboard for when I text asking at away games. Gave her Pats and home field advantage along with All Play option chose for her and told her to stick with Madden Picks. I took the Chiefs without all play and the game set at all madden level. Ended up being a really tough game. I beat her 10-7. I've been pounding teams but with her using All Play, it enabled her to give me a really good game.

Also, the running game online, is NON EXISTENT. You cant run with any kind of consistency. Having a 95 plus rated running back means jack shit. He could be rated 75 with 95 speed and its all the same. Try running online? yeah, right.

The whole Chiefs offense is based on ball control running the ball, but you cant.

Starting to see what J Diddy is talking about. If i cant find start running without any consistency i am going to trade this bitch in and put in a few bucks and get Soul Calibur 4 or see if i can trade it straight up for Uncharted.

I think the Chiefs D is good in this game..the front four get a shit load of pressure..

as for the running game, I figured out to hit the spin button or juke right as you get to the line to avoid tackes at or behind the line..now Im getting a lot of big gains and controlling the ball

what are you serious?

I cant remember the last time I DIDNT score 50-60 pts in a game of Madden.

I am going to assume that he meant in 5 minute quarters and on a level not named rookie or pro.

I hadn't bought madden since 07, I won some $ playing poker the past couple of weeks so I splurged.

I still have the lowly PSII.

Can I download an updated roster?

Is it as simple as downloading a file and copying it onto the memory disk?

The way you download rosters in this game is the most stupidest thing i have ever seen. YOu have to go to a quick game unranked and the rosters will upload, then you just quit the game. lol Tada, rosters. WTF?

Going to give this running game more of a chance in practice mode to see if i can do anything different.

Let me make this clearer...as its confused across the entire internet.

SOME people....some people, do not have their gaming systems linked to the internet.

some of those people, like myself, are looking for an updated roster file, that I can download to a PC, copy to a memory card and then use in the offline gaming system.

Other than that, I suppose a .txt file of Chiefs roster, with decent ratings could be created.

I'd also appreciate some slider suggestions to make the game better.......htmsque used to do those.

Its too bad the a-holes drove him away too.


If anyone has gone through the online roster update......for a PSII friendly version......could they reasonably post, link or email that file?

How are you getting those highlights on there?

I have it for PS3

On the PS3, during the game, if you have a highlight you want to save then push Start to pause it and go to Replays

Press Square on the replay and choose the camera angle you want and once satisfied save it

When you're done with your game, go to the main menu of madden and go to My Madden and then click on Manage Highlights

From here you can upload the highlight to your easportsworld.com account (you need to create an account first if you don't have one).

Then once it's done uploading you will have it on your account

Then I click the code to share and paste it here

4 times. Shitty too, because the bastard didn't do shit but throw it up, and he beat me 35 21. Two of the three TDs came on 4th down on their own 20. Realistic my ass.

I have to say though, the game is growing on me. 6-5 with the Chiefs online isn't too bad.

Run the ball, play action, and good defense. We need to get this dynasty started.

I am having trouble getting sacks with DT's. I can get penetration with Dorsey using the power move at the line sometimes but can hardly ever get to the QB in time. The best I get with him is disrupting plays and allowing one of the LB's to come in and get the running back or getting the running back myself sometimes.

There have been times I've been *this close* to getting the QB but just can't do it.

Yeah, it's grown on me a little, but that doesn't mean this game isn't a joke compared to what it could be. Maybe you should read my post better. Recievers getting BEHIND quarter prevent is basically impossible but it happens on multiple occasions with Moss. On 4th down none the less, on their own 20.

So, i just played an online game. KC vs Indy. I win 14-10, but check this shit out. LJ goes down hurt. D-Bowe goes down hurt. Donnie Edwards goes down hurt. Jarred Page goes down hurt last but not least, Kolby Smith goes down hurt. WTF is that shit about. lol

I played against NE online last night..I outplayed the guy but Croyle decided to keep throwing to the Pats when his recievers were wide open

I just lost an online game to the Colts because of a roughing the passer call. My guy was in the air on a dive when the ball left his damn hand.

I get like three roughings a game. I mean REALLY? Roughing an animated figure. What a ****ing joke. It's not like his health is a concern in a DAMN VIDEO GAME. UGH!!!

It's Peyton Manning. His likeness is protected in any format, physical or digital...

Played another game earlier and i won 27-28 against the Ravens. Starting to see how ****ed up this game really is. The rocket catching is still good. Dude would just rocket that shit to Heap and Donnie and Pollard couldn't outleap his ass. Dude would just drop back hell of far and rocket pass it to recievers. He would also do that up the gut QB sneak and its like 3-5 yards everytime no matter what you do. lol Well, thats not totally true. He scored to make it 27-28 with 14 seconds left and he tried to go for 2 with that QB sneak, and i got lucky with a hit stick hit with Donnie and laid Flacco the **** out and i won. lol

This game is very much cheesy. I hate hate how the ball is passed in this game. Its either a Brett Farve pass or a Chad Pennington pass. No in betweens. The Chad passes float for freaking ever. This allows the defender, hell 3 defenders to get there. So disappointed with this crap.

So I've gone into tanking mode in the first season. Figuring out which plays I like, then mysteriously letting the other team comeback in the final minutes. Working on a top 5 pick to go along with another top 10 pick from the Bills for trading Surtain.

I'm very unhappy with this version, and especially with Wii. You can't even select your receivers for crying out loud! :mad:

And those million dollar graphics everyone keeps posting? Where are they? I have a $1400 HD LCD TV and my graphics look worse than Madden 08.

I am going back to 08, my Ninetendo classic controllers, my kids' GameCube, and hope EA Sports gets this crap fixed by next year.

I posted this on another message board forum. I have been playing this game alot, and the more i play it the more i see how much of a ****ing fraud this game is.


The more i play the more i see this game is a piece of *bleep*. I am starting to have no fun with it. Nothing about it seems realistic. How you break tackles on the game is just retarded. If your wrapped up you can STILL cut to break tackles? who does that? lol The ball doesn't even rotate. It just flies thought the air as if its on a rail. lol You either throw a super duper bullet pass or an ephus pitch.

I know there is threads on various forums titled "little things" when it comes to All Pro Football. Well, in Madden you cant have any. There is no little things. lol You cant even create a wedge on the kick off to the left or right side of the field. Your only option is to return it DOWN the Middle. What is that about? Field Goals? As long as your FG kicker has decent power, you wont ever miss any. Wind doesn't matter much AT ALL. Play in the rain or the snow? Doesn't have any effect on the game. My field goal kicker is so weak on the KC Chiefs that the computer automatically put my Punter as the kick off specialist. I dont think Colquitt has ever kicked off in a NFL game. He may have once or twice when we had Morten Anderson, not to sure, my memory is shot. hah EVERY interception in this game is a 2 handed superjump by the defense, anyone else notice that? Then you have the dreaded spin catch. More often then not he does it when its NOT needed. It just slows your momentum down so the defense can catch up to you. If you want to throw a fade route to the corner of the end zone? forget it. You will throw a ephus pitch so that 4 defenders have time to get there and swat it away. lol

This game is just not good. Seriously any sim ballers that tell themselves that they really stepped it up this year are just lying to themselves. I just don't see how this game can be good. At first i thought it was ok, but the more you keep playing the more you see its not real football. All Pro Football may have its faults, but its miles ahead of anything EA could dream of.

I posted that on the 2K forums. I had to kind of clean up my language over there as i am a moderator. I have to be a nice guy. hah

I had a problem w/ a glitch and the screen freezing when you play a 2nd game in franchise mode (offline.) I actually contacted EA about the problem and they told me to exchange my copy of Madden and if I still had the problem I could send the game to EA and they would "take care." of the problem.

I exchanged the game w/o any fuss from Game Crazy. And I seem to have just had a bad copy as I haven't had a problem w/ the game play as of yet.

Fingers crossed!

haha. I may have to go that route. My sister has an Ebay store. I should just put it on there. **** this game for all its worth. Its not a good representation of the game of football. If you take NFL from there and made a generic game like what APF did, this game would sell even worse then what APF did and they still managed to sell about 300k copies of the game.

The only thing remotely realistic about Madden is the ****ing teams and the names of the players.

I wonder what kind of controller you use for X box - the one like a Nintendo controller? Because I am fed up with not being able to select a receiver other than the "call your shots" feature.

Turn off the "All-Play" feature. At the start of a game, where you choose teams and move the controler icon over the team you want to play, on that screen there is also an option down at the bottom that will allow you to turn off the "All-Play" feature. When you do this, one of the things that happens is you have to hit one of the direction arrows or A to select a reciever before throwing. Also, I've learned that if you make a quick flick of your wrist, the throw will be a hard line drive. A slow sweeping motion over my head results in a rainbow throw downfield.

it shouldn't they are the only company able to make a NFL game. Why do they have to try? They just dont hold up their end of the bargain in making NFL Football next gen. There is no reason to. They have no incentive. All they say is, what other game are you going to get? Then laugh all the way to deposit their checks.

I played Madden for the first time. It was against my friend's little brother..13 years old or something.

I picked the Chiefs, he had the Rams. First play, I ran the kickoff back for a TD. Then he hits some sort of f*cking Rewind button or something and erases my play altogether. WTF was that all about? Needless to say I didn't like the game much from the start, but it only took about 15 minutes to make me want to vomit all over the TV.

And besides that, the game plays like sh*t and the animations are terrible. Some guy at work was telling me how much of an improvement this year was over '08. Not a chance.

I know what are they thinking? I was actually getting ripped by some guys on here for calling out this garbage. I guess with all the suckers like them, this crap will never be any good. I really wanted to play some good NFL ball.
Look at all the great games for the next gen systems. This game could be a million times better, but it's cheaper just to slap some lip stick on an ugly whore, and put her back on the corner. It's a damn shame. If they didn't have that license someone would destroy Madden in game play.

This game might be more realistic that I first thought.

Just got through beating the Donkeys in Denver for the 08 season. I must say, Madden 08 has managed to capture the realistic reffing at Mile High. For the most part, I've seen a flag or two a game. Not this one. Nailed me a bunch of times for pass interference. In one play in particular, I sent the CB on a blitz, the RB dives to the ground in front of him at the LOS (Did I mention they also have Denver's dirty blocking on here?) the CB hurdles him and keeps going to the QB. The QB sends the ball down midfield for an incomplete. Then I see the call, pass interference on my CB! I watched the play several times on replay, it was clearly a dive to take out my blitzing CB, but the ref calls PI anyway.


Not only that, my WRs can get tackled before the ball gets to them down field and it's ok. Oh well, I got my first blocked punt for a safety on them. That kinda made up for the paid refs.
