Madden Superstar stinks
 
It just does.

I'm playing with AD right now, in Madden superstar mode. Here's my frustrations

1- they pass 75% of the time
2- half the runs they actually do are draw plays

I mean come on if you're only able to control one player it's usefull if he actually touches the ball every now and again, being able to do more than run into a line and get tackled so to speak. I'm sick and tired of getting an unsuccesful draw play straight into all kids of linebackers.

And why do they pass? Tavaris Jackson gets intercepted 3 times a game now and AD still gets no more than 15 touches a game. It's so annoying!

Ugh... and Draw Plays in Madden almost never, ever work!

Addict 11-07-2007 04:05 AM

yea it's awful, even against the rams D I can't get more than 3 yards out of them... Terrible, terrible plays.

They work all the time for me. Computer AI is really smart. If you are consistently passing on 3rd down, a draw play works wonders in that situation.

Madden sucks period this year.

It's better to make a superstar for defense.

I made myself a SS and I got drafted by the Jets. You're involved in almost every play.

That's what I do when I play Superstar, only at FS.

Anyone ever tried O-Line?

I've never liked the Superstar mode. I could never get into it the way I did Franchise Mode.

I hope, eventually, that you are able to control the one player all game but yet you are able to pick your own plays and control your franchise.


Another thing about Madden. Why did they get rid of the lead block thing. I loved to take control of one of my O-Lineman and to jackup one of the D-Line to create a hole.

Madden stinks in general, I traded it in within a week of buying it.

haha, yes i have... made a LT named Orangelo Udekwe, 6-8 350. I'm really good at the 40, so he ended up running a 4.41 40 and had 94 speed. I'm terrible at the bench press though and only got like 7 reps. So my LT had 94 speed, and essentially maxed out stats like accel, catching, throw power, kick power ect... but his blocking stats were all in the 50s.

Anyway, it was pretty fun, and really easy to jack people up, my only problem was that they don't give you pancakes on passing plays.

it is just as bad in ncaa, ill be qb, get all the way down inside the 10 passing, and then it is 3 straight run plays. My RB won the heisman with 800 total yards and 26 rushing td's

Demand a trade.

just audible... i know in Madden if you're the QB you can audible anything.

Nitschke-Hawk 11-07-2007 12:51 PM

Yeah... Draw plays all the ******* time at RB!!! My best one was last year I chose "your father was a Hall of Fame OLB, freak athlete, mom a sprinter or something. I got drafted to the Browns and played the Strong Side, Rush Linebacker in their 3-4. I averaged about 17 sacks a year with them including a 20 and 23 sack season, won defensive player of the year a couple times and somehow got League MVP ( I think it was with them). Played there like 5 years before moving on to 4-3 teams which wasn't quite as fun, but most of them were better than the Browns even though our Browns teams were really competitive, I won Defensive MVP I think 1 more time. I won a couple Super Bowls with the Panthers. Basically it was an OLB with similar abilities to Urlacher and he was originally like 6'2" 240 but since he was drafted to a 3-4 I made him 6'4" about 255 pounds. I had a sheet with all the stats and accomplishments but I can't find it.

I think I played 13 seasons.
5 with Browns
1 with Vikings
4 with Panthers
3 with Texans (I think)

I've done Strong Safety a few times too and there's a pretty good rush getting up in the box and making plays.

nfrillman 11-07-2007 01:47 PM

Being a RB on Superstar makes me so mad. I was a 94 as a rookie and got drafted by the Broncos. My guy is on pace for like 2500 rushing yards, but what happens every time a third down comes up, they pass. I'm talking 3rd and 1,2,and 3. Pisses me off.

M.O.T.H. 11-07-2007 02:03 PM

yeah, as some said in here. Madden is just awful this year, another big letdown.

if you audible it messes up your view and increases your chances of throwing a pic.

neko4 11-07-2007 03:03 PM

Madden and NCAA this year were much better than they have been recently

What system do you have? In PS2, they dont have the Bench Press. Does anyone know why not?

I've tried...

-QB
-RB
-FB
-WR
-TE
-OLB
-CB
-SS

Out of those, I'd say that RB, FB, TE, WR, OLB, and SS are the best. QB is messed up. You can barely see over the line when you're playing.

Bills2083 11-07-2007 03:28 PM

It's stupid how they dont have the same features for every system.
