just finished playing 2 games


the pros
the running game is smoother then ncaa when it comes to cutting and making the d miss.
good blocking and tackling mechanics.
i like the right stick juke move qbs can now do in the pocket.
the presentation so far is A+ really does feel like you are watching sunday football.
the introduction for the bears, looked really good.
zone and man coverage both seemed effective.
pressure finally get to the qb mentally.
recievers go up and get the football, but soo do the DBS.

the bad
crosby has a leg but i was hitting 58 yeard field goals into the wind. same thing with kickoffs. maybe it could be because they moved it up 10 yards.
no one was picking up clay matthews or any of the Lb on a manual blitz.
the run game felt to easy, i broke off 2 80+ yard runs in the first game with grant. the blocking maybe to good...
not a fan of th new kicking system

all in all it didnt really feel like last years madden, i will cop it, its better then what i thought it would be



oyeah... fu*k why did they have to give us the bears and packers....
nice review, props

Not sure if I am feeling this. Hopefully the retail version is a lot better. If you even get tapped while going up for a catch they will drop the ball it's really fu*king stupid. Cutler takes forever to get a pass off. Forte is awful in Madden as usual. I am not sure if I will get this or stick with NCAA. More than likely probably just get this but they better fix it up for the release. They still don't have it with LB and RB for D Adjustments WTF they fixed last year so you could and than took it out for this one?
Just go into options and change the audibles to 2 years ago. I think it's called d pas something

sh*t plays just like ncaa like i said it would. but thats cool with me. they both got the same gameplay improvements this year with the zone and no suction. im getting both.

remember this is probably a old build of the game to.

i remember the ncaa 12 demo felt nothing like the ncaa 12 game.

This is surprisingly a good game. With the huge franchise improvements it's a day one buy for me.

The demo is out for PS3 btw. Just have to use the search function to find it.

Played about 10 games today.

Just like I said in another thread (and no one wanted to believe me) it plays just like NCAA. Same tackling system, defensive AI improvements etc. It feels a lot more polished than NCAA does, and that's always been the case.

Offense is finally hard this year. No more long bombs down the field every other play. Really gotta work your way through progression and take your time getting down the field.

Running game is more difficult, as well. Offensive line play will be a factor. Haven't used any of the speedy backs obviously, but it appears zig-zag running is no longer an issue.

It just seems like everything is a lot tougher this year, but not in a way that is cheap. Defenders don't warp to the ball, though I still find it difficult that Tommie Harris is jumping 5 feet in the air to grab a one-handed interception. Only happened to me once in all of those games so doesn't seem to happen as often as it did in previous years. Defenders are a lot more aware and it's hard to sneak a pass right over their heads because they will at least knock it down half the time.

I feel like Aaron Rodgers is way too fast on here. On Normal speed, he's as fast as Michael Vick was on last year's game, meaning Michael Vick will be a fu*king speed demon. Not feeling good about that. Even seemed fast on Slow speed.

Replays are too short sometimes. I heard they limited the replay threshold due to this being a demo, so hopefully it's different in the final game because this was a problem in Madden 11 before they patched it.

Overall presentation is great and I believe it actually sh*ts on NCAA, and that's not an easy feat.

Easily shaping up to be the best Madden this generation. Can't wait for August 26th (season pass)

By the way, I too am seeing frequent drops by receivers. I know its tough to catch the ball in traffic or when hit, but this is just ridiculous. Could be the slightest love tap and they'll drop the ball.

Just finished first game and lost in overtime on all madden 24-21 on some bullsh*t. Got the ball to start ot...on 2nd and 10 hit nelson for like 20 yards wide open (maybe a td) and he dropped it. Next play ran a slant with finley open for a first wide open and dropped it (only prob I had with drops other then a bomb to jennings). Then punted and had them 3rd and 18 and they bombed it...thought I had a pick and dropped over my head (was pissed)..put them in field goal range and they won...

As for the game I like it....only gripe I really had is 2 things they took from ncaa...

1. Camera angle is too far out....on run plays especially....when u handoff the camera pulls back and hard to read ur blocks when everybody is so small)

2. The tackling....although better then ncaa still not loving it...cant put my finger on it but its like a soon as u hit them they fall dead or something


Only played 1 game but a couple plays where forte was running dudes over...hoping the broken tackles is fixed. I wasn't in tbe backfield enough to really say
