I’m reviewing Madden NFL 10 right now, and it will likely get finished before my Champions Online review due to the difficulty in reviewing an MMO. Here are my early thoughts.
- The game does look better this year, but the framerate sucks. Too often the game will stop for a second during heavy action.
- I wish they hadn’t included the ‘chain gang’ for measuring the ball’s spot for first downs. Is it realistic? I suppose. Does it break up the experience? Hell yes.
- Superstar mode hasn’t changed much (again), and what has changed was changed for the worse. Why simplify the superstar creation feature? Was it too complicated before? I don’t believe so. I dislike the ‘dish out your own skill points’ option, and I have since Madden ‘08 on PC.
That’s all for now. I’ll have the full review by the end of the week (I hope).
