Madden NFL 10 Under Review

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).

My Champions Online review is lagging, but it's coming. Don't worry! lol

Anyway I'm continuing to play the NBA Draft Combine game for Xbox 360, as well, so maybe I'll review that too. It makes ne mad though... I'm not real happy with it.

Lastly, it's quiet here at due to lack if new games so it'll be slow here for a while. Later, all.

Latest update

I recently bought an iPod touch, which I feel will be handy in keeping this blog updated. That's actually what I'm posting this with. It's a very handy device, honestly. I wish I'd gotten one sooner. Oh well. In any case, I'm working on my Champions Online review. That will be up soon but until then here's a summary; it's fun but has some fundimental flaws that need addressed before the game really takes off.

Anyway, that's all for now. Later all.
