  • Madden 08

    http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/784/784281p1.html

    The major focus, as it should be, is on gameplay. Remember that old "If it's in the game, it's in the game" line? Tiburon is taking that to heart. If it's on the field -- laterals, gang tackles, diving catches, strips, shutdown corners, hurdles -- it's in Madden, said producer Ian Cummings. His vision? Pure dynamic gameplay. You control the animations -- the animations don't control you. You can see what Cummings has to say in our exclusive video interview.
    OH MY GOD FINALLY. hopefully

      I finally finished reading the whole thing, and I can't wait for a ball carrier to try and hurdle over me...

      Also, defensive AI is fixed, and apparently I'm actually going to *fear* Champ Bailey, and other monsters on defense. Also, while the defense can hit people in mid air going for the ball, your superstars can now make superstar catches... one handed, put the feet down, and turn at 90 degrees and go upfield, instead of watching it soar three feet away from him. Apparently corner routes have been fixed, so they don't work all day, and fatigue will actually play an effect, so players can't just keep running the hail mary all day. Miami will have trouble dealing with the cold in Foxboro, and New England will have trouble dealing with the heat in Miami.

      Damn, that's not even all of the improvements, so you might as well read it yourself.

          Wow, after watching that video interview I'm extremely impressed. I can only hope that it's not just talk and that it actually translates to the game. It sounds like they addressed most of the major problems with the gameplay though.

              If there's no fantasy draft for 360, I'm not going to buy it.

                I agree. I didn't enjoy the Madden 07 this year on 360 or PS3.

                    I can't wait for the improved blocking, with linemen double-teaming and moving to the second-level. That's been a big problem in the past. The up/down hit stick is pretty cool too.

                      Ok, I'm gunna pose a few questions about this game and hope they get answered.

                      1) Is there still going to be the stupid QB vision crap that 07 had? I bought 07, had it for maybe 2 weeks and sold it because the vision pissed me the hell off.

                      2) With all these "sweet" new features that make it literally you doing everything, isn't it going to be nearly impossible? I mean you have to control every player on the field. I might be mistaking this though, is it just that you have the OPTION to control everyone on the field? Is it that you have the option to, but if you don't and let the comp run the WR route and you throw the ball, then the comp kinda sucks or what? Just a bit confused, didn't play 07 much.

                      3) What's this about people saying there's no fantasy draft???

                      4) Isn't it going to be ridiculous trying to remember the individual controls for every position on the field?
                      Glenn Dorsey will slip...

                      Jets will not take McFadden...

                        They haven't said anything about a fantasy draft, so I'm assuming that there isn't going to be one for Xbox 360 or PS3.

                          I thought QB vision was one of the best features added to Madden. I can't even play without it anymore. Also don't see any reason why they would remove it from the game since it adds to the "realism" they're trying to achieve.
