Madden 25

As a madden apologist I think this is the worst Madden ever.

One play stretch run that go 80 yrds...kick returns that score easily...defense that does not react to passes.

Saw a lot of hate for Madden 13 but defense actually reacted and all they needed to do was calm down the pass lead system.

Oh well...EA is far from perfect in Madden but the game shouldnt regress like this...however my least favorite madden was 12 n this is the same development team who did that.

Yeah, the defense doesn't feel right at all. On all-madden settings, the game just becomes a shoot-out. I'm not a fan of it.

Exactly i play in online franchises and had a game where i lost 63-56.

We both felt dirty afterwards especially as i mistakenly did a QB wrap with Tony Romo n he runs for 20 yards and scores a td stiffarming his FS... It was funny n sad. I have the Panthers in another franch n use panthers playbook so just called a play before realizing my QB is not Cam.

do defensive backs twenty yards off the ball with their backs turned from the play still hyperwarp across the field to make one-handed interceptions snatched from the receiver's hands?

 

or ghost through your receiver's body from behind to make the play?

 

do the perimeters of the screen still eliminate the receivers from vision when you hike the ball so if you're throwing smoke routes or quick bubble screens you're basically blindly hucking it into a blind spot?

 

madden hasn't been good since 08 came out.

I don't believe you.  No way they fixed something that has been happening since Madden '98.  That would make too much sense for that company.

honestly only saw that in M2005 - the year they supposedly toughened up the defense (by doing what you described)

Probably. Their collision detection is always off

So you're the guy who hasn't bought a widescreen yet.
I need to get 25 - been replaying 10 and 11 on PS3 since my 360 bit the dust. Maybe I adjusted some settings somewhere but I don't remember having this problem.

I know I always check for an obvious corner blitz and set that WR to run a go route. I never throw blindly and time it where the WR is past the blitzing CB before the safety gets to him.

I don't remember 08, but they did a major engine change for M10, which AFAIK was the last major change to the game engine.

i have a 55" but you still couldn't really see the periphery. poor design IMO

 

my wife bought me madden 13 for my birthday. i plugged it in today and played it, started toying with the franchise mode, and an hour in i just shut everything down without saving it. absolutely useless. i'm incredulous that so many basic structural problems exist on this thing. how can EA sports possibly be this deaf to its consumer base?

 

also that composed soundtrack is fucking awful. if i want a goddamn orchestra i'll go pay money to see one.

This happened to me last night. I destroyed my brother with Carolina vs. Green Bay and Seattle earlier in the day. He picked Denver and on the very first play I had Smitty running a smash route while LaFell was doing a quick curl. Fuggin DRC drifts back to follow Smitty, leaving LaFell wide open. I hold down and throw it to LaFell to put it at his feet, only for DRC to peel off of Smitty, jump the route 10 yards down field, and take it back for a pick 6.

The next play I hit Hartsock for 30yds over the middle and as soon as he got hit the ball shot out literally into one of his player's hands about 10 yards in the opposite direction.

The 3rd play I had Smith uncovered down the seam as the FS had drifted to cover Olsen. I toss the bomb and somehow Ignacho or whatever his name is not only gets back in time, he overruns Smitty and gets the pick. 3 plays, 3 turnovers. All computer assisted.

It's games like those that make me despise Madden.

Oh, and the top ranked player has something like a 96% to 3% pass to run ratio.

I've been against Madden for years but this years edition is the best game they have put out in 10 years.
