It the first cut, I am sure they will tweak the rating and positions before release. They have English listed at RE not OLB at this point.

I do think that Madden developemtn team has done a better job of communicating with buyers/community this year then before. Releasing the rookie rating this early and asking for feedback is light years ahead of previous years approach. I am buying into the hype and after last release I was pretty much done with Madden.

It just the rookies they released. No other players.

I wish that they still made madden for the original Xbox, I don't like the player's movements on the PS3 or 360.......

Bruton's toughness rating is too high. When he's on the field you could swear he has a vagina.

I know in their last update for '09 he was an 88, or something like that. I remember he started as a 77.

It should be noted that Madden is changing the rating system, so avg. players will no longer be ranked at 80...they've said tehy are using a wider spectrum of the numbers. So I think the ratings might be deflated compared to last year.

Man I really miss playing football video games. It's a damn shame the NFL and EA teamed up for that license... 2k games were off the hook.

good. The rating system is completely out of hand. Decent LB's are in the 90's on their scale.

It should be more like the FIFA ratings where very good players are 75+, elite players 85+, and average players about 60-65

That the goal that the Developers have stated. Plus it seems the all ratings will be used to effect player performance this version.

Absolutely.

The biggest joke about Madden was always the draft in league mode, no game generated rookie would be above 75 unless you got a kicker or QB with 99 accuracy and 60 power.

The last madden game I bought had 40+ actual rookies with a rating of 80 or above, but playing through 11 drafts I only ever saw a handful of computer generated players with 80+.

There was a video where they brought in a panel of experts to evaluate their game. One of the guys had a copy of 2k5 with him and said something to the effect of "You still haven't beat this game yet."

Fixing the ratings is a good first step. Too many 90's on the team.

Motion capture is the next. Their animations are so stupid looking. They need to mocap about thirty guys, ten for each body type and use those movements. It's expensive, but they can afford it and it will make the play more realistic.

If this next one delivers I might go buy it. I haven't bought a copy of madden in 3 years.

EA's made a lot of different moves... including the funding of new original IP's which is why we have Mirror's Edge and Dead Space.

They still have serious issues when it comes to DRM and customers though and they still do tend to milk their licenses too much. SecuRom is the devil.

Thing about running a franchise in Madden is that player speed is overpowered. I just get quick receivers (usually tall), and destroy. I had a 99 6'4 CB for about a decade (he didn't even start his first two years) and he had 197 INT's with me but hit over 200 with a trade to Dallas... completely blew away any other CB I've ever had before and to this date.

Point is though that this kid was a 6th round draft pick. If I can get a guy with high speed and acceleration I always turn them into a super star... I even turned a WR into a RB with high speed etc, and had 3k yards on All-Madden lol.

You should probably adjust the sliders a bit.

Here's more info on improvements to franchise mode, which was my biggest gripe over the nex gen Maddens.

http://insideblog.easports.com/archi...rovements.aspx

some highlights

Added the 5 new QB ratings (Throw on Run, Play Action, Short Accuracy, Mid Accuracy, Deep Accuracy).

Older players will digress much faster. In fact, when a running back hits 30, hes going downhill at warp speed.

Younger players will progress quickly if they play well. Were talking up 10 points in overall if he has a great year.

Veteran players will still progress, but not substantially. They can also digress if they play poorly.

We added more stat categories to determine a players success/failure for a season. For example, if you lead the league in rush TDs but dont do all that well in total rushing yards, youll still be able to progress accordingly. And its not just yards, and TDs, its other stats like rushing attempts and rush yards per carry. This was done across the board for all positions.

Lots more encouraging info over on their blog...

Looks like Knowshon is also tops for backs in catching and pass blocking. Seems about right.
