I probably say this every year, but Madden is looking VERY good this year. Give me back my classic camera and I'll be thrilled.

Eh, right now NCAA feels way ahead of Madden.  Ian has already disappointed me with no dynamic lighting. I know I bitch about this often but it adds so much realism to the game. Even NCAA 11, will be bumping it up to having it change every quarter.  The sad part is even that is a far cry from what we had.

Ian bitches about how time consuming it is to make dynamic lighting look right.  The NFL has 1/4 of the teams/stadiums that the NCAA does. I would take this over that half hearted POS half time show they called presentation last year.

Well,they admit they didn't touch franchise,and it looks like GameFlow is the key addition.
Pro Tak was nice,but 10 is still pretty much 09 under the hood.Looks like more of the same for 11.

Demo info

"We felt that 5 minute quarters (which is the default quarter length in Madden NFL) provides fans the best opportunity to fully experience the GameFlow system, as well as get a feel for the new locomotion and dual stick controls," said EA Sports spokesman Rob Semsey. "We'll have more details to announce, including some surprises, for the Madden NFL 11 demo very soon."

This year's demo will feature a rematch of last year's AFC Championship game between the New York Jets and the Indianapolis Colts, a choice made by fan voting. No word yet on when, exactly, it will be released.

---------------------

I applaud 5 minute quarters. 2 minutes is simply too quick and you get far too much hurry up offense in the NCAA demo.

Wish washy as I am, really thinking about removing my preorder from Amazon. I just do not see how "gameflow" is worth putting down money on Madden. Game just looks stale in comparison to NCAA 11. 

Apparently there was a leak or it found it;s way to torrent sites but a lot of people are putting up videos of the retail version.  Many of them are being deleted but there are a couple out there.

This has been a good summer for football games and it looks like Madden will be getting even better:

Moving forward, we are working on addressing some of the most common feedback in upcoming title updates. You all already know that we are planning on releasing an update to enable old-school pre-play controls right around the start of the NFL season, which also will include the brand new Madden Moments LIVE feature where you can  the top games from each week.

In that update we will also have numerous art, gameplay, and stability fixes included as well. Along with that, we have also planned a second update to come towards the end of September. Below is a list of the top priority issues we seem to be hearing the most about that we are looking at:


Along with that, we have also planned a second update to come towards the end of September. Below is a list of the top priority issues we seem to be hearing the most about that we are looking at:

    * Fixing a bug to allow friend invites to ranked games
    * Generally making pass defense more effective
    * Reducing number of broken tackles
    * Fixing user blitz exploit(s)
    * Tuning injuries
    * Tuning CPU & GameFlow play-calling logic
    * Improving play action blocking
    * Improving kick return blocking
    * Improving online connectivity issues with kick meter lag, media streaming, etc.
    * Random stability improvements

Hopefully this should give you a glimpse of our current priorities and our continued commitment to keeping Madden NFL 11 relevant and giving you an enjoyable experience over the entire year. We continue to listen for any and all top issues, and the list above is by no means all inclusive or locked so feel free to drop by the EA Forums to provide any feedback on things you want fixed.

I decided to give Gameflow a try today hoping it would help expand my play calling and challenge me to use plays I've avoided in the past. I enjoyed it during my first game but realized that it makes the play clock almost irrelevant since plays are picked instantly. As anyone that's ever played against me online knows, there are plenty of times when I've struggled to get a play off in time and that challenge is now removed. I'm going to give Gameflow some more time though and see if it holds my interest.

BTW, updated rosters for Madden were available this morning.

This is the best post explaining the sliders in Madden 10/11 I've seen so far;

http://www.operationsports.com/vBulletin/madden-nfl-football-sliders/437464-sliders-101-a-3.html#post2041515544

I've used these theories to set up sliders that so far,have cut down on the ridiculous scores and big plays.I set threshold to 100 and play on normal speed.

Good stuff...I'm having a hard time getting Madden to play how I like, so this may help me better tune the game to my liking. The first I may try is switching the threshold from 50 to 100.

BTW, does anyone know how to view player fatigue when using Gameflow? I'm used to looking at the player colors on the playcall screen, but that's not shown when using Gameflow.

I have to be honest...I find this year's game to be almost as fun as NCAA Football. I was very critical of Madden when the demo came out but I've done a complete 180 on my opinion since then.

My current assessment of Madden;

Offline,I've made peace with it. My sliders have been effective in reducing the crazy offense and big plays.

Online,the floaty passing and kicking lag kill it.

Another Madden Patch (#5)

from OS

Ian Cummings just posted the details for http://maddennfl.easports.com/blog.action?blogId=TitleUpdate5 - Madden NFL 11 title update #5. When you get in a few games, please post your impressions here.

*UPDATE: The patch is still hit or miss ATM. It's up to MS and Sony on when they will push it.

Quote:






Hello Madden fans, we are happy to announce the release of our fifth (and likely final) title update for Madden NFL 11, just in time for the holidays. The fixes listed below represent a culmination of all the feedback received from you, the fans, in our loyal community. We'd like to thank you for the continued support and strong attention to detail, as well as, your willingness to contribute in always trying to make Madden NFL a better game. This title update focuses on primarily fixing online exploits and fine-tuning the balance of gameplay by making numerous improvements to defensive AI.

The fixes are as follows:

• Fixed an exploit to disallow defenders from all blitzing when the quarterback tried to pump fake when facing the wrong direction. This was discovered in NCAA Football 11 and fixed in both titles.
• Fixed an exploit where unscrupulous players could get their fullback or tight end to move across the line of scrimmage and cause an encroachment penalty against an unsuspecting defensive player.
• Fixed an exploit where online gamers could use specific timing in pulling the network plug and cause a soft lock for both users, thus not having to face a loss. We've isolated and fixed the problem, so now if someone pulls their plug, they rightfully get a loss.
• Improved reaction times for defenders in coverage to better react to receivers
• Improved logic to get defenders in better position to make plays on the ball while in the air
• Improved defensive play recognition to get defenders reacting to the play faster
• Tuned up defensive pursuit to get defenders to take smarter angles to the ball carrier
• Tuned up defensive gap aggressiveness to get defenders into the hole faster
• Fixed an issue where the play art on defense would sometimes not show up correctly when showing blitz. We have corrected this problem in thirteen formations so now all proper play art will be displayed when showing blitz to the offense.

I think they are paying to do it.  Sales are down like 18% this year (something from OS) so I assume they are trying to do everything they can to keep people from selling their copy and losing another sale to a used game.

Speaking of which a friend offered me his copy as he was selling his 360 and I reluctantly agreed to take it. Kinda sad that I struggled to take this game off his hands, for free.
