    Madden first glimpse Impressions

    • I've played two games so far and the defense all together seems like poopoo. I've played with the 49ers and the Texans and their corners being so awful might be why... we'll see.
    • Running game looks dope.

    Anyone else?

    Eddie and I ran a couple. I disagree with you regarding the defense. I'm still working on the pre-snap audibles, but when your defense is set up right, it works out well. That may be because Eddie was rolling with the Bills. However, he was able to put up 24 points on me, too (I was the 49ers). Running game is definately DOPE. The blocking schemes are great. Between the doubles and yoru lead blockers actually going out to make blocks, it's HUGE. The spin move actually works like it should this year IMO. Tested out fake punts at midfield with one yard to go. Eddie purposely came out in a return formation. Stopped one attempt, and the other was a big gain for 10+ yds. I generally don't get into the presentation of the game that much such as uni's and gear, but I love the ambient noise in the stadiums and I love the fact that the players on the sidelines are actual roster players instead of the same clones with double zeros on their jerseys, lol. Saw some pretty cool catch animations.

    So far in games I've played:

    First: 56-21
    Second: 32-7
    Third: 49-28

    I've been playing 7 minute quarters no acc clock, feels really long so maybe we need to use acc clock this year?

    While there are holes in the game the glaring one being the online fantasy, I have to say this is probably the best madden we've had for ps3, as it should be. The few games I've played teams seem to play fairly true to their real life counterparts.

    Everything I've read, I've seen and I've also seen the exact opposite. I've read the return game is impossible, while sometimes yes, depending on who is deep factors in a ton. The running game has been non-existant at times but also a force, same with passing. Team personnel, ratings, and conditions factor in more than anything. I think user controlling defense is going to be so essential and stick skills on defense are either going to make or break you. The Lions as a whole are f'n terrible but if you can help out with Delmas, it turns into a bend don't break defense. My big recommendation is that people learn to play safety as that is where there will be the most need.

    If anyone hasn't tried the online team play they should as well. I would be very interested in playing with some of you guys. Maybe even get some 3 v 3 with the league. While defense is tough with a different camera view, it is a very fun "new" feature that should have been the focal point of their marketing efforts, not the silly gameplan, that is already annoying as F.

    What do you mean by defensive stick? Are you talking about big hits and stuff like that?

    Also, for any of you that have the game, I noticed the crowd noise was terrible in the demo. Did they make it louder? There were periods where it was just so quiet and boring sounding.

    Stick skills. You need to absolutely make sure you are in the right place at the right time as any weaknesses on your defense will be exploited if you don't help.

    Don't know about crowd noise, I'm sure you can just turn the volume up in the settings for the crowd volume. I know the Lion roar for the Lions is loud as F tho. A little pee came out the first time I heard it, thought I was being attacked by a lion in my living room.

    We won't be starting up the franchise until all the rosters have been updated for both online and offline. However, if some contracts remain incorrect, which they could, we are going to move forward with what EA has provided. Otherwise we would be opening up pandora's box if we were to filter through every contract on every roster to try to get them to exactly what they are to date.
