So that's how you got Madden, NCAA 08, and MLB The Show early?

Indianapolis really doesn't have any ma and pa video game stores. You either go to Target, Walmart, Meijer, Gamestop, or something like that to get what you want.

Just got done playing my first game.

Notre Dame beat Michigan 20-14, although it shouldn't have been that close. Overall I really like it and the passing game is a lot more fun. Only ran for 50 yards on 25 carries but I was playing with a low-80's rated running back.

So far so good!

Did you play last year's Scott? I'm sure you did, but have there been changes for the better? I was always annoyed how the CPU got instant pressure on your QB, but when you got locked on with an OL, you were shut down.

M.O.T.H. - Stephen Garcia is a 79 overall with 74 speed.

Daniel- 97 Overall
Coffman- 95 Overall
There are 9 players rated 90 or higher, 20 players 85 or higher.

Actually, if the player numbers are the same as in real life, Alexander is the lowest rated WR on the team. I'm pretty sure he hurt his knee again, but I'm not sure how long he is out for this time.

Just played another game and Notre Dame beats USC 27-14.

The Trojans were noticeably better than Michigan but I am not very good at video games so the fact that I beat the #4 ranked team with the Irish leads me to believe this year's version might be a little easier than normal.

Rushing yards were hard to come by again, although I did manage to break off a 40-yard TD run on the first play of the game.

It's crazy now though, half the time if you get an early lead on guys they will quit so you don't get the win outright, and I recently played somebody on 08 who beat the system, he kept putting his wrs in motion across the QB and he would run into my defense, called it encroachment on me each time and the game made me quit because of too many delay of games in a row lol...So even though he was losing 0-17 I was credited with the disconnect, now that I've seen how that goes I really don't care about my record too much anymore I just try to get in a few good games.

Clausen is very good, in four games I don't think I have ever been under 60% completion with him. Don't be afraid to lob up some deep balls to Kamera. Oh, and most importantly, use Armando Allen as your running back!

Oh wow, very nice. I will likely being using Armando Allen as my starting running back, for sure. I know he had some great speed in last years game and I imagine the same must be true for this year. From the sounds of it speed will be important for RB's this year.

I'm just hoping Clausen has a little bit of mobility so he's not a statue for me.

Thanks for the info though, Scott.

Technically, you can't do that in real life until the player states he wants to transfer. I've played with crummy teams before and players ask to transfer to your school. I've never had one with Michigan because usually big program transfers don't happen too often.

Donovan Warren is beastly in this game.

Played the first game of a dynasty with Michigan. Beat Utah 34-17. 2 INT's, 1 taken back for a TD by him. Awesome on punt returns too. Heisman difficulty also if anyone was wondering.

Dude, you have to love the Notre Dame bias in this game. Crushing everybody so far til I hit them. Had a DE break up a 30 yard out route to a 93 speed WR. No way in hell does a DE keep up with a guy like that. And #34, whoever that is, is amazing. Breaks tackles from 90+ defenders like its nothing.

Oh and the jump the snap feature is the most ******** thing ever put into a video game.

Missouri was #1 until the conference champ game against Oklahoma
Went 10-2 with Hawaii and ranked 23rd, lost to Florida and Boise. Unfortunetly have to play in Hawaii bowl.

Chase Holbrook was the passing leader.
James Davis the rushing leader.
Jeremy Maclin I think was the recieving leader.

We have identified and fixed the bug causing the game to crash when editing rosters. This bug also causes teams to disappear and team ratings to change.

The patch is being tested tonight, and assuming all goes well it will be submitted tomorrow for certification. The expected release is in 5-10 days.

Until the patch, we recommend you cease editing rosters. Rosters that have been corrupted by the bug will not work after the patch. If you have a roster in progress and have not encountered any freezes or missing teams, it will work after the patch. There is a possibility a roster can be corrupt and not have surfaced any problems yet. This is why we recommend that you stop or back up your work among multiple save files.

We are also fixing the bug where the depth chart gets reordered after editing a player with this patch. http://www.operationsports.com/forums/images/smilies/graemlins/woot.gif

These are the ONLY fixes in this patch. We are planning on a 2nd patch with many fixes, but we had to get this one out the door.

We appreciate everyone's patience on this matter.

Special thanks to CDJ, 21SEC, and Fairdale Kings for helping us track this down.

You have to be a little careful w/ that...if you kick it too far to the sidelines, it is amazingly easy for someone to return it for a TD, all they have to do is run straight. There is literally no one there to make the tackle. I've already given up 3 kick return Tds online that way. That is exactly how Madden used to be also.

out of curiousity, why? it sounds like the game has gotten substantially worse (from the posts, it sounds as though defensive AI is utter garbage, for example). aside from being the "new football game", what is there to entice me to spend $60?

note: i'm serious. i may have missed all the rave posts, but it sounds like there have been some pretty serious gripes.

Well, it depends, are you looking for fun or realism? If you're looking for pure realism, then the game may not be for you. If you're looking for a mix of realism and fun, then this is the perfect game for you. As for the issues, I've only had two, and both can be easily combated. The special teams coverage is easy to fix, on kickoffs, kick the ball along the sideline, as the problem on KO's in the coverage unit just runs in a straight line. on punts, kick the ball OOB, its really not that difficult.

On defense, there are certain plays that are money plays for stopping certain passes, obviously, some guesswork is required, but the defense isn't that bad. I've gotten pass rush and interceptions and fumbles and the whole nine yards. Yes, playing defense is alot more difficult, but in my dynasty, I'm only allowing 7 PPG on AA, so its not impossible.

As for in-game bugs, I haven't detected one yet, dynasty is alot better this year, I haven't had a roster glitch, recruiting is soooooooo much quicker, and therefore, interesting.

The gameplay is alot better this year too, the animations and cut scenes are awesome, the play seems pretty realistic, and other then the linebacker running away from the RB when he gets a pass in the flats, no issues there. The screen plays aren't impossible to stop, or a money play that can be executed flawlessly.

The biggest issue I have is some of the new controls, some buttons were witched up from 08...other then that, I haven't found much wrong in the game. This is only one's person opinion, and you shouldn't believe everything you read on the internet, but IMO, its an amazing game. Anything else that I missed? Don't ask me about online though, I don't have XBL

Second guy I made was a Pass Rushing LE, it's kinda hard at first because in the Highschool playoffs your team ALWAYS runs a 3-4 so it's not as easy to get sacks but once you pick a school it gets a lot better, but if you're 3rd or 4th string getting practice points is hard too.

just looking for opinions. i used to buy these every single year (both madden and ncaa), but was so completely disappointed in both versions last year, that i'm re-thinking whether i should bother. the biggest issues for me have been that all the enhancements have seemed to be "window dressing", while actual gameplay issues go unresolved.

As of right now, I'd tell you to just rent it and see if you can tolerate it. Definitely don't by it (especially if you have a PS3), because there are so many ******* bugs that it makes we wonder if the geniuses at EA even tested the thing before shipping it.

They're already in the process of getting a patch approved because there was a huge bug concerning roster files and editing teams in the PS3 version. One of the developers at OperationSports has also said that they're working on another patch to fix other gameplay issues.

All year, they hyped up "wide open offense." Basically, all they did was make it impossible to play defense. Offensive linemen splits are too small, making any form of blitz nearly impossible, as there is just a giant cluster **** of bodies at the line of scrimmage. Defensive backs and linebackers completely refuse to react to receivers in their area or the ball in the air. Also, people have noticed that defensive players seem to lose about 10-15 speed points as soon as the ball is snapped. If you move your linebackers around pre-snap, they are much quicker and more fluid, but as soon as the ball is snapped, they start moving like Ted Williams in quicksand. There is absolutely no pass rush to speak of. Holding anybody (even the CPU) to under 60% completion percentage is a miracle. Plus, you don't even have the option to fix this stuff with sliders, because they completely ****** those up by having a listed slider represent something else, like Human Break Block is really the CPU Tackling Ablility (although posters on various messageboards are starting to figure out which sliders really correspond to which). The developers have already said that they're going to need to release a second patch just to fix some of these glaring gameplay issues.

All in all, the game looks great and that's about it. If they'd spend less time on coming up with ways to celebrate in the endzone and having mascot games and actually devoted this time to developing a new game engine (or at least fixing noticeable, glaring problems in the one that exists), maybe they'd actually be able to come out with a good game. Instead, they're too busy trying to cater to as wide of an audience as possible. That, and the lack of competition really hurts, IMO. There's no incentive to put out a great product, as most people will buy the game anyways.

If the patches can actually make this game playable, though, I'll let you know.

I'm an offensive guy, and I hate it anyways because offense is too easy.

Here's a perfect example. And this is on Heisman difficulty.

I agree, my 1st game on Heisman was against Illinois.....

Daniel: 23/30 402 yards, 4 TDs

Maclin: 8 catches, 185 yards, 2 TDs........2 Punt return TDs

beat em 45-3

I'd assume it's pretty pointless, seeing as how there is no pass rush to speak of in this game.

not neccessarily...you just need to know what to do...I got 6 sacks last game with USF against Kansas, and George Selvie leads the league in sacks with 8 in 3 games. It may be because I only play on All-American atm, until I get a better grip of the new features, but its really not that hard to pash rush

Has anyone tried to create a campus legend DE? If so, how was it, and is it worth doing?



I'm going to reccomend not doing this to everyone, as I just wasted time doing it. You play in a 3-4 in HS so the pass rush is limited. I think I still got 4 sacks there though. Then you go to a school, and getting practice points are incredibly hard. You must get a sack or solo tackle to get points. And 90% of the time the offense throws quick passes or runs to the opposite side of the field, and it's nearly impossible to rush the QB before he somehow gets the ball out. Weak.

I absolutely love this game. Me and my buddy both created a QB/RB and play a coop dynasty with Oregon. Their jerseys are sooooo sick to play with on my HD -- they look absolutely phenomenal. We are 2-1, beat Wisconsin in Camp Randall and Washington at home.. we then lost a shootout 51-49 to Chase Daniel and Mizzou. Playing Heisman defense is absolutely ridiculous with 2 players.

07-18-2008, 01:16 AM
It is terribly easy to run kick offs and punts back, for a minute I was trying to figure out what I did wrong but its really nothing...I'm a big defensive buff and love to play defense, but at times it really seems impossible to stop a certain offense, but maybe its just me atm...Florida or Texas Tech get into a groove with passing routes and they are all over the place, they always find an open WR on 3rd down somehow, maybe I just need to find a new defensive playbook or give it a little more time.


The game itself is still awesome though, haven't played with everyone because I've just been playing with Texas and getting comfortable with them, love the gameplay, its incredibly smooth...Probably will take another few weeks of playing as I've only gotten a few days to play it, but I definately need to get something changed on the defensive end because its frustrating to not be able to stop a team from passing the whole game.

Darrell Scott :( I was so looking forward to playing with him this year, I knew he would be a beast, now our running game is severely lacking...Still pissed we didn't pull him in.


I've played with Scott though, he's big and powerful and very quick, he feels like the college version of Steven Jackson when you play with him, very nice back to start a dynasty with, he would of made Texas alot better.

The key to a good run game is lead blocking with a OL or TE where you think the whole is going to be. To do this press B to change to an OL then when on the one you want press LB. Just truck the guy in front of you with the right stick and it should leave for some gaping holes for your RB.

How is the gameplay/graphics for PS3? I played this game on XBox 360 last year and it was great, but I have a PS3 now and am considering buying the game. I recall a bit of a backward step from the 360 version of Madden 08 to the PS3 version in terms of graphics, namely the framerate and smoothness of the graphics. Does anyone notice a problem in that respect?

Bumping this thread because I have a running wishlist going.

- Improve recruiting. Decommittments. More in-depth.

- Ability to place your assistant coaches on certain players. Have the assistants have recruiting attributes.

- Add the recruiting pitch of "Coaching Scheme". If I'm running Florida's offense, I should attract speed. If I'm running Alabama's offense, I should attract road grading OL and power runners.

- Have said assistants move onto head coaching jobs once they become successful.

- Head Coach mode. Pick an existing coach with accurate attributes, bonuses for certain coaches (for example, Recruiting bonus for Butch Davis, ST bonus for Frank Beamer, Defensive Backs bonus for Nick Saban). Or create yourself and start out where ever you want. Have the equivalent of the high school playoffs in Legend mode and make it a stint as an OC or DC right away and then get an offer at a small time school and go from there. Somehow incorporate recruiting skills during coordinator tenure. Have the Head Coach engine as a model for this mode.

- Make it more difficult. I'm way too good on Heisman right now. I can blow out top ranked teams like it's nothing. I have to turn the AI way up to make it at least challenging.

- Make the power backs/fullbacks more effective. Speed backs are far and away the best type of back to use. Power backs are useless.

- More trick plays. More explosive plays. For example, if I have a guy with 99 speed/accel/agility, he should be able to reverse field and run for a touchdown once in awhile. I should juke 3-4 guys on a given play with this type of player. However, make the Maclins and Harvins less effective by making it so they don't fall forward the same amount when being tackled as the Scotts and Coffees of the NCAA.

- More options on create a recruit. Give me the ability to set the players top 10 schools and set the interest level and pitch importance. 2 reasons for this, one, I hate when I create a recruit and he doesn't sign with me. Two, I would love to see "Pro Factory" as the top pitch for a 5 star kid from Missouri who has USC and Miami as his top 2 and see who comes out on top for him.

- More pageantry. Show me the pre-game rituals of Clemson, VT, UF, FSU, Miami, and Michigan. I loved watching my team in the tunnel before the game in the old NCAA's.

- Give me a more dynamic crowd. Make them stand up and go nuts when I pick 6 a pass. Make them boo if I'm playing terrible. Make them more crazy for a #1 vs #2 game then for a #1 vs #119.

- Better blocking and running AI. How many times have you seen a guy let go of his block once the RB gets next to him in the hole and the AI assumes he's gone by and you get tackled? How many times have you seen an RB have a clear path to the end zone running diagonally but then for no reason cut upfield and get tackled? Fix this.

- Take away the stupid computer knowing what play I'm running before I run it. I absolutely hate that. Audibles absolutely destroy the computer. There shouldn't be a DE spying my RB every time I call a god damn screen.

- Effectiveness of running the draw is too low. Fix this. This ties into the above wish.

- More jersey combos. Throwback jerseys. Blackouts. Whiteouts.

- Fix the open field AI. If you go left/right/left/right/left/right against he computer on a punt return, you can run straight into the end zone. They shouldn't break a full sprint to whatever direction I press on my joystick.

- More team based animations after scoring.

- I'd love to see some sort of option to include a playoff in Dynasty Mode.

- CUSTOMIZABLE CONFERENCES!!!!!!!! I LOVED this feature. Why did they take it away?

- Improve the performance of Online Dynasty. Fix the Players Leaving glitch.

I will add as I see fit.
