Madden NFL 10
Good, but not the greatest
MADDEN NFL 10 is good game,but it is extremely tricky and you have to be a very good gamer in football.I would definitely recommend this game to experienced gamers but not to people who have never played a football game before.
Good game but Needs Work
Possitive: First of all, Frachise mode is awesome. The Stats are mostly right, and the gameplay is pretty good. They have added some cool new features such as the "Extra Point" the new weekly recap show in Franchise Mode. Also alot of new graphics have been added such as being able to see fans buying mercandise, tailgating, and cheering. Also If there is a questionable first down the "Chain Gang" will come out to measure. The Start Menu is quick and easy to understand. Negative: Please, do some work to Superstar Mode. NCAA does a great job and when you get ready to transfer your "Superstar" to Madden it's absolutely no fun. Bring back Interviews, and the ability to Hire your own Agent. And PLEASE make the Superstar Quarterback View more like the Normal QB view. Some of us still like to play "Superstar" mode, and if EA can bring that back to life they'll have a great Game. Overall a good game worth buying, but not if you're just buying for "Superstar" mode.
best madden yet
ok. so we all know the best football game of all time is nfl 2k5 right? and people are always complaining about how itll never be that goo? well, their right, but madden 10 is second next to that. the new tackling and fight for the fumble is a very nice addition. the updated teams and players add to the mix but are not as new as 11. i will never, i repeat NEVER like the commentators. they sound drunk and i just wish they would shut up. whenever it comes to game music i always hate how its mostly rap. but madden 10s soundtrack left me very satisfied, with some amazing artists like slipknot, korn, killswitch engage, and system of a down. all in all, madden 10 is a good game if you want cheap game other than 11, and is third best football game ever.(1st and 2nd are 2k5 and ncaa football 11, i personally think ncaa is better than madden.) final score:8.75 p.s if you wanna play me, my psn id is madness_x4.
Need a good sports game but need it cheap?
I got this game a number of months after it's release and had been playing Madden '09 which was my first sports game on the PS3. I was satisfied with it but then I got Madden '10 and was blown away! Players and the overall movement is starting to smooth out- finally. The graphics are vibrant in their colors and overall look good, except for the cars outside of the stadium; I just find them to be humorous and they did not affect my rating of this game at all. The stat system for each players ability has been updated significantly. Example: quarterback's passing ability is now based on long, medium, and short range along with play action, in the pocket, etc. So if you don't want to fork over $50+ for Madden 12 and don't want to get Madden 11 (It looked horrible. Even my friend who has gotten EVERY Madden game passed up on it.) Madden 10 for it's cheap price is exceptional for a sports game.
Finally got it right!!!
Back in 1994 is the first time I played the Madden series and it was on Super Nintendo, fell in love with the series and bought every single year up to 2001. I have rented everyone, each year, hoping they improved. When the Xbox 360 and PS3 came out I was stoked to try Madden and it was again a disappointment, until now. This game is great! There are a few bugs, obviously, but other than that the game is finally as real as it gets. The speed of the game is what I really noticed first. Its regular football speed, not 200 mile per passes the game used to have. The pocket passing is second to none and the tackling is 150% better than the last few years. The only thing that bothers me so far about the game is the fact that some instant replays and other plays have the players feet and body going into walls and the ground, which is kind of annoying. BUT overall, if you have been waiting for a decent football game on the next gen, its here, in Madden 2010.
A lot of Superstar features gone
I have been buy the Madden games steadily since 2000 and had a few before then. I am kind of disappointed in this years game. I am a big Superstar mode player and I am sad that they took out so many features for it. I enjoyed getting to do the workouts and drills when you created a person and your ratings be based mostly off of that. This year you just get 100 points and pick and choose what happens. Just playing in Superstar mode just seems to be taking a step back to before they implemented the drills into the superstar. You don't choose your agent, no emails, they kept the IQ test for some reason, there is no NFL Compound before the draft either. Overall for Superstar mode I am very disappointed in this years. Madden 08 is still my favorite. As for Franchise mode, I don't play much of it, but it seems they put more into the Franchise mode than anything so that is good. So overall it's a decent game, but could definitely have been a lot better.
Nice Madden but tired of cartoon crowds
I've taken off a few years from Madden because the changes were minimal. Renting was enough. I did the same this year and I'm tempted to buy it. However, I'm disappointed that the realism of the game is a affected (at least to me) when you see sloppy stadiums and fans that are cartoonish. Check out MLB The Show to see how the crowd really enhances the realism of the game (fans walking up and down the aisles, fans walking around the concourse, beach balls in the stadium). EA please check out MLB The Show to see what a crowd and stadium should look like. It's frustrating to finally have a good Madden, feel like your in the game and see the cardboard cutout, cartoon crowds with empty aisles. Use the 1080 for the easy things EA. Until they get this easy detail up to par I will continue to rent and continue to rate the graphics low. Good try EA but poor attention to detail, especially when making a game for a high-resolution console like the PS3.
the best pro football game so far!!!!!!!
this game is the best madden so far and i strongly recommened it to sports fans. it has diamond like graphics,good controls, and great game play. at first before i bought this game i thought it would just be a waste of green but then i tried the demo online and they put some new features like, Pro Tak which means they changed the way you tackle a player but its better!!! you still hit with the HITSTICK but when you use it; it slows down time and makes it look more realistic. another is called FIGHT FOR THE FUMBLE where you have to try your best to recover the fumble its fun. another is FIGHT FOR EVERY YARD< if you like running the ball LISTEN IN when you try to get tackled by a defender then more and more defenders will come in and try to drop you on the ground but if you flick the hit stick back and forth then your RB will keep pumping his feet which will give you more yards!! well i hope i was usefull.. get the GAME!!!!!
My divorced me over this game!!!!
If you married, DO NOT PLAY THIS GAME; IT WILL OWN YOUR SOUL FOR HOURS :) Buy it @ GAMESTOP...They are the VERY BEST!!PERIOD This game is the best madden so far and i strongly recommened it to sports fans. it has diamond like graphics,good controls, and great game play. at first before i bought this game i thought it would just be a waste of green but then i tried the demo online and they put some new features like, Pro Tak which means they changed the way you tackle a player but its better!!! you still hit with the HITSTICK but when you use it; it slows down time and makes it look more realistic. another is called FIGHT FOR THE FUMBLE where you have to try your best to recover the fumble its fun. another is FIGHT FOR EVERY YARD< if you like running the ball LISTEN IN when you try to get tackled by a defender then more and more defenders will come in and try to drop you on the ground but if you flick the hit stick back and forth then your RB will keep pumping his feet which will give you more yards!! well i hope i was usefull.. get the GAME!!!!!
Good But Needs Work
Madden 2010 is actually a huge step up from previous maddens but it needs some work. The graphics are amazing as usual, but gameplay is lacking as well. The difficulty is basically like this: The harder the difficulty the dumber your team is and the worse they play. The easier the difficulty the dumber the computer is and the likeliness of having a big play is pretty much guarunteed. There are still crazy speed bursts in the game by players who don't even have the right to be running that fast, like scrambling with Michael Vick and getting caught by a 300 pound DT. The blocking has improved, so that you end up getting sacked at least once a game, but it is really hard to get to your opponents quarterback. Overall this game is OK, but EA needs to focus more on gameplay and physics if they want to catch up to 2k.
