I gotta say, I don't really like the way that Madden plays. I've had the game since the day it came out, but haven't played it much.
The controls feel slow and clunky to me. The vision cone is a concept that I obviously love, but the problem with it is that it seems to take too long to switch between WRs. I dunno, it feels unresponsive.
The players just don't seem to move right. It's like they are running at half speed. The entire thing feels stiff and emotionless. I can't ever get into it, it feels boring.
And the blocking between the tackles is still crap.
I dunno, maybe it's because I'm used to NCAA which is a lot more uptempo, but Madden feels boring to me. I try to get into it because it seems to be more realistic in terms of strategy and such, but it's just difficult. The fact that I don't really care about the NFL doesn't help either.
