The Madden 2010 Official Cover has been released, and the athletes are Pittsburgh Steelers' strong safety Troy Polamalu, and Arizona Cardinals' wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald. I think the design of the cover is great.

Oh, and the game is called Madden 10.

Enjoy.

So the Cards are going to trade Q while Fitz goes on the DL.
That rookie last year better be ready to step up even more.

such a rip off.. BUT I LIKE IT

Do the Cards and Steelers play this season? Cause it'd be ironic if both players got hurt at the same time or something...

the only thing about that cover is that troy is looking to blast fitz, while fitz is looking for the quickest opportunity to run out of bounds

besides obviously not being as awesome as it could be, Madden is going to be confusing as hell from this point. Madden 10? Madden 2010 or the 10th game? Just seems stupid to me. Just name the damn game 2010 and avoid all and any confusion.

Best Madden cover ever, I like it a lot.

I've skipped the last few Maddens, ever since I got a 360. Maybe it's time to pick up the update.

Sigh, 06 rocked, I had an epic Saints dynasty 20 years in the future, but it was sadly erased by a roommate tripping over a cord mid-save.

I guess we'll just have to get used to it, hell for all we know they may stop calling it Madden here pretty soon anyway...I like the cover, I still think Fitz is going to beast next year, but either way I'll just send out trade offers for him in all my fantasy leagues if people are that concerned :D

wow, the old cover was so much better. This one is just too messy and has no meaning since Troy was terrible in the Superbowl, if that was the idea behind the cover.

OLD COVER FTW!


edit: is it me, or did the person who designed this make a terrible attempt at cutting Troy's hair?

The only reason I have ANY hope this year for Madden is the fact that Josh Looman, the head developer of head coach this year, will be heading the franchise mode. HC was a masterpiece.

Anyway, does this mean both guys get cursed, or do they both get half a curse?

That's some interesting stuff, good to know...Whether or not you liked HC, if they could incorporate more of that format into Madden it would made the franchise mode 10x better.

You could buy an XBOX 360 on sale for many games. If you're not a hardcore gamer then I guess the PC is enough.

xbox live is where its at. PCs to me are more for civilization, mmorpgs, and flight simulation games, consoles are for the finger twitching FPS and sports games where people want to play against other people. i haven't played on playstation network, but i'm sure its similar to xbox live. consoles just do things better for these fast paced games because everybody has an equal system and instant access to tens of millions of gamers. atleast that's the word on the street over here.

I like console because your all on the same playing field with the same equipment(besides internet speed, but mine is good) and you never have to worry if you can run a game or not.

I like pc for age of mythology and empires. No true rts games for console because halo wars is a really dumbed down rts.

I agree, It seems like every year is too much for a game like this. They should just sell a roster update and like a new uniform/stadium patch and develop a good new game every other year or so.

I hate when that happens.

09 was a disappointment for me, both NCAA and Madden(I get them in a package because I import classes everytime). The class import feature is important to me and 09 botched that up big time. It was easier to import on 05 which I'd been playing up until this year, and that was just ridiculous.

I'm waiting for like a dozen reviews and 500 photos/walkthroughs before I even consider buying this.

LonghornsLegend
04-26-2009, 06:46 PM
Player import is so screwed up on 09 it's not even funny.


For one all the good black WR's come in to the NFL as dark as possible with dreads, doesn't matter who; Crabtree, Maclin, Harvin, for some reason all my imported college WR's who were good had dreads and I couldn't change it, annoying as hell.


Not only that but the rookies were WAYYYYYY too juiced, and they didn't figure out how to make them come in at a reasonable rating...Demarcus Granger is a 94 coming out, Carlos Dunlap is a 95, Crabtree was a 92, Taylor Mays was a ridiculous 97 and stronger then most LB's already in the game, the list goes on and on.


Not only do they come out good, but their pay scale is according to their overall, so you have to pay them more then anyone on your team, and by year 4 or 5 they will be making 13 million a year that you have to eat up.


My favorite part of Madden is saving 4 draft classes in a row, so all my franchises start with some realism and I'll have players I know, but even with all the updates they never fixed that and it's bugged me for a long time.

I'll probably buy 2010 because I haven't bought a Madden since 2005, but I agree with this. I'd buy official EA roster/stadium packs if they'd just spend more time developing each game.

Tell me about it. I drafted Percy Harvin in the first round and he came out an 87. I gave him a 7 year deal and it was for 70-something million, which was fourth highest in the NFL.

The thing that pisses me off the most is the running game. My running game sucks so bad. Maurice Drew averages like 3.9 ypc a game. I couldn't run anywhere. The cpu breaks 50 tackles before going down. As soon as I hit them in the backfield, the back would shed the tackle and pick up 4-6 extra yards. BS.

I was talking about how terrible the running game was to, they defenders shed blocks so easily and they are in the backfield or they come off defenders just as you it the hole so often, they need to bring back running like it was in 07 or 08...what also pissed me off is that the my OL NEVER gets pancakes, I would have an OL of like Marcus McNiel, Davin Joseph, Jason Brown, Shawn Andrew, and Levi brown and defensive lines would just tear my running game apart, but passing was so riduculously easy...also the AI on the Superstar mode is absolutely TERRIBLE

The running game always pissed me off because it didn't matter if you had a power back or a speed back or the defender was completely blocked but if they got a finger nail on you it slowed down the runner so much that another defender would get him before he could gain another yard.

I have been looking at a bunch of videos because I am a huge Madden fan, mainly because I love creating fantasy teams and building them, but the more and more I see the better it's starting to look...

they seemed to also have fixed the problem that you QB would like be sucked into the blitzing defender once he got close and now you will have, just like in real life, up to the last second before you get hit to throw the ball, also they are creating a new thing so that when you are personally looking downfield and you get blitzed or a guy gets through that you controller will start to rumble and then you will be able to flick one of the analog sticks and will step up in the pocket or do a certain move to aviod the sack (obviously it will work more with Big Ben than Mac Bulger)
