Madden09 vs Madden08 video

Madden09 vs Madden08 video

Electronic Arts released this rather out of the ordinary video of Madden NFL 09 comparing the versions 09 and 08. Looks like the devs over at EA Tiburon did a nice job.

does this use that new physics system that was showcased a few months ago?

If EA was smart, they'd buy up the Euphoria's developers and make it an EA exclusive.

maybe EA's animation tool is better and cheaper ;)

This game will have supposedly have SOME dynamic (physics based) animations, based on some Madden site pages I read and these videos. They're doing their own system.

I might buy it, I haven't bought a Madden since 05.

Not that impressive to me. The only thing I saw that was of note was the stadium shadows.

Since mario galaxy, everybody uses white backlighting on models, looks horrible.

Rim lighting has been around for quite a while. TF2 uses it and CGI has used it for a very long time.

So, this year is a roster update AND better graphics. What a bargain.

Didn't see any real noticable difference tbh.. Biggest one I saw was the different texture for the grass and snow, but that's it..

Hopefully (for the fans) they've improved gameplay by adding better physics etc, like you guys were already talking about.. Because graphics won't really chance a lot anymore on this generation of consoles, that's obvious..

Err, looks identical. :/
Commented on 2008-05-25 16:14:42
Yeah this thing hardly looks different.
I especially liked the part where they decided to compare weather by showing one field with nothing going on and the other with snow. How about comparing with another snow?
The player models probably look disproportionate still with huge fucking heads too from a distance. Show us the player models from the above angle we all play from.
New lighting model? All you did was change the skyline and keep a simple shadow casted

Way to update... in a cosmetic way that's hardly noticeable. Madden is always the same
