Wow....I will say that all the talk about this Franchise mode is getting a little out of hand...no need to throw the baby out with the bath water.....The new CC mode is an upgrade to last year, they just need to put the Fantasy Draft, Create/Edit players, and control of your coaching staff....put these things into the current CC mode and all the bad talk will stop and I can take the cotton balls out of my ears.....The rest of the game is an improvement,k but I am starting to see that EA cant win with NFL gamers...if they do nothing then people say that they are paying for the same game and EA is lazy and doesnt listen but if they try to change things like this year people just want the old way back again......this still is just an OK game not great and not bad but it seems to be getting better through trial and error....
This is kind of a Break out year for the PS3. Its just over 5 years and that time the graphic differential comes out between the systems. Madden for PS3 hold true, but unfortunately its still as stiff as a Madden 96 sega genesis game. They keep trying to brand game control and its little to no different. Buttons are becoming chunky and the game still plays how it wants to play regardless of the user capability. Jukes for running backs are still single blocked moves. When Ncaaa game play moves toward madden it will be good again. But both NCAA and Madden are lacking the life some of the previous games had throughout the season, commentary and video playback.
By now things such as the turkey bowl should be coming to life. Much like the current NFL it simply lacks the idea of rivalry and match-ups and its getting to the point its all or nothing.
