how about instead of everyone askin for codes somebody actually gives their opinion on the demo!!!
you got it.
the presentation is great. play-calling screen has been scaled down, there's a bunch of stats and facts constantly being placed on the ticker, every time there's a play that brings out the measuring sticks or a catch on the sideline, they have a long dramatic cut-scene which adds that extra intensity.
one thing i didn't like was that the new pre-snap cut-scenes hinder your ability to make defensive adjustments. for example, if there's a pre-snap cut-scene that has a camera angle zoomed in from the side, you can't see your linemen or linebackers shift when you're pressing the proper buttons. not that big of a deal, but something that bothered me.
the game play is way, way more realistic and true to life. instead of scrambling out of the pocket, rolling left or right and throwing to the opposite side of the field, you actually have to let your plays pan out and play with conscience decisions. timing is crucial, especially for the throws down the field. the big play isn't automatic anymore unless you execute it properly. this year is focused more on small amounts of yards per play.
if you fumble, you can encounter a fumble pile-up mini game which instructs you to rapidly tap different buttons in order to recover the fumble. haven't had any luck winning one yet, but in fairness every ball was out of my reach before the mini-game started.
in the exclusive super bowl demo, they have the f!ghter jets flying over the stadium before the game. a minor detail but a nice touch, nonetheless.
they have a wildcat formation in the playbooks, but no throwing plays are included.
out of the four quarterbacks playable in both demos, roethlisberger is easily the best choice. he has the best mobile ability and accuracy on the move. with every other quarterback you need to be completely set in your throwing stance to have a chance at a completion.
