EA also released these images of Madden NFL 07, from the Xbox 360 version. Still no signs of an Playstation 3 version.

Wow, looks exactly like the last one. I guess even an extra year wasn't enough to get them any closer to their old "target" video -- you know, the one the final game was going to "look better than".

At least this version will begin the (probably years-long) process of adding back all the features they deliberately stripped from the first next-gen offering.

The track is part of the new mini-games/training camp thin in the 360 version.

You can run the 40, benpress, etc. Not only for training camp, but for rehab too. They have several 'mini-games' for that and you walk around the field going to each one.

I am irked though. They are not having the Superstar mode in the next-gen versions. The revamped Superstar mode looked very exciting. You create a player, then you play as ONLY that player during the entire season. Say you are a fullback, you don't call plays cause you are not the coach, and you don't throw the ball because you are not the quarterback. Also, you can either watch the defense (which would be like watching a movie in fastforward), or you can chose to play as the entire defense if you are an offensive player. Visa versa if you create a Deffensive player.

That part sounds super fun to me.

I am just glad that the new running mode is in all versions.

If you actually played the game it got pretty close to the target trailer. Yeah the totally hand drawn shit isn't there and the postprocessing "we had a month to do this" sheen, but it looked good.

Looking forward to them putting all the features back into it since the last one was rushed. Looks great.

did you actually, ya know, look at any of the pics? the second and last one look damn incredible. even better than the target vide, in my opinion. im looking forward to this, but ncaa will be my football purchase for the year.

About the game


What's up?
  • Megido
    Megido @GriftGFX: Id on't know. I didn't finish GTA5 but i felt like a LOT of the missions were complete throwaway garbage. The main story was mostly decent, but the rest? (8 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And right now there's a bit of a backlash against sandbox games in general. (22 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX There are plenty of examples of poor open world games, but there's also stuff like GTA5. I think it's a bit more nuanced than open world = bad is all. (24 minutes ago)
  • Megido
    Megido @GriftGFX: I think you nailed it there though. "The best bits". Most open world sandbox games are filled with mediocrity and some good bits. (31 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yes.. that "build a world" part is where they design it. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @GriftGFX: except not many are. they build a world, and stick quests in it. that's why open world RPG's quests are typically so shallow. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX There's no reason an open world can't be curated and designed. The best bits of every good sandbox are. (1 Hour ago)
