Here it is -- Your do all, know, all, post all Madden 2007 thread. This is multi-platform, so there's no need to create one for system specific version.

PLEASE ONLY CREATE A NEW THREAD IF IT IS TOTALLY NEEDED.

Reviews, stories, and complaints should all be posted here. I'll try and keep this post updated with links to different "interesting" posts throughout the thread.

Let's try and make this work, Madden isn't out yet... I'm creating this thread early enough to beat the madness.

Is it worth the money to get an XBox 360 with no HD capable television, or to play on a PS2 with no HD capable television??

I want to splurge on a 360, but i won't ever be able to spend $1,500+ at a time on an HD ready flat panal TV.

I just need some outside advise on what my best options are...

08-18-2006, 12:44 PM
Well, I dont consider downloading it BAD....its not like EA sports cares about the users, they only care about the money. Only the next-gen madden has the new stat categories...WTF is that! I bet most of the players are on ps2/xbox, yet they screw us over. I play on PC, and they keep giving us PC gamers the same old current gen graphics...our PCs are good nuff to have next gen graphics!!!Lazy bums.Furthermore, theres so many glitches year after year....like Blocking on punts...didn't ANY Of the testers see this?!!?WTF!

The same nano blitzes work year after year. They think of these ideas but dont fully develope them. In 05, they had the hit stick, yet it was flawed cuz small undersized DBs were hit-sticking big power runningbacks and knocking them on their behinds. Then they had truck stick, and that was flawed when Warrick Dunn was able to knock Ray Lewis on his behind!

Theres so many more flaws in the gameplay.


But I dont care, its still the funnest game i've ever played.

1 last thing, I made this website/blog thing for a bunch of Madden related stuff. Currently, I've made some Create-a-players for the 07 draft prospects, Quinn, Peterson, and Johnson. I plan on doing alot more: (someone just requested reggie bush, so yea, thats why hes there)
http://maddencaps.blogspot.com/
thats why they call me the Madden-Dude

Been reading a lot about issues with the new madden (360 version). Apparently, when you unlock Hall of Fame Legends, they become available to sign in your roster. So what happened is shortly after unlocking a "Legend" (for this example I'll use Dan Marino) some team in your league signs him.

Picture this:
After going on a 2 game losing streak <insert your name> bounces back to greatness defeating his rivals the NY Jets in a stunning 63-2 arial performance. After putting up 546 yards in the air, you unlock Hall of Famer Dan Marino. 2 Weeks later, (without you knowing) unsigned free agent Dan Marino is signed to the NY Jets. WTF!

It probly won't be anything like that :lol: but I can see how it could seriously piss me the F off.

I also heard that the next-geners can't manually update their rosters (edit stats and stuff). that REALLY sucks for them. This is just another example of EA trying to shut down any competition, and anything that doesn't make them money. Someone made this site with custom covers (http://www.eacustomcovers.com/) He just liked making covers and was very good at it, so he made that. All covers are FREE there, he makes thme at peoples requests, but now EA is telling him to stop and threatening to sue. WTF. Honestly, his covers are better than EAs

I was mad when they gave up on that feature. It was exciting. I do admit that playing against the patriots was hard when they had both Ty Law and Dick 'the Night Train' Lane. Man was that guy amazing.

I did have the Amazing Otto Graham as my quarterback.

I don't want to edit attributes myself. That would just put my bias to work. I put the names into the college game and stuff, but I don't change anyones ratings there either. Plus, since there isn't the option to edit the roster, I'm guessing the roster updates will be far more frequent than in past years.

I like having the real players, and I don't go in and change ratings, or create "god-players"(ya know, 6'5" 230lb WR with 99 speed and jumping, etc). Although, I do export my NCAA draft classes over to Madden.

So I've been playing Madden (Xbox) for a few days now... I have to say that it's pretty much the same stuff. It feels just like 06 did. It has the new features (kicking is like NCAA with the right stick and the new "control the blocker" thing is cool), but it's the same old Madden. It kinda feels like everyone is gonna pay $50 for updated and a few half baked new features.
I'll be getting the 360 version tonight (yes yes, I'll be in line at midnight at EB). I hope it brings more to the table. It totally feels like they spent all their time with the next-gen Madden outing and left current-gen gamers in the past.

I have both PS2 and Xbox versions. Like any dual platform games, I always go for the Xbox version. PS2's HD support is pathetic.

In my franchise, I destroyed Pitt in the opening road game, but barely scraped by Buffalo in game 2. 14-10, and it was tight. I actually caught an endzone pass for an INT in the end to win.

Pep's cone is small, but he's VERY accurate and has a lot of power. I did some bad off passes of his back foot and passes on the run that still hit the target. He's VERY quick and can escape most linemen and some linebackers. I love the way he plays.

That depends on what you're looking for. It's almost unbearable for me to play a PS2 game on my big screen HDTV if the game doesn't support HD (which most PS2 games don't). The PS2 and Xbox versions are very 06-ish to me.

I have heard about the "bugs" in the 360 version. Doesn't sound like they'll hamper gameplay though.

The controller I just bought for my PC(even liscensed by EA) is bugged out and wont install =( , it flashes in and out on my hardware installation screen like its on crack.

Looks like Ill have to wait untill tomarrow to play much of Madden because I couldnt even handle 5 minutes of playing the game on the keyboard.

Dolphins overall rating is 88 btw, and Ronnie is noticably better IMO(or maybe its just the changes to the run game in general).

Graphics rock for the PC this year but the game still isnt where it could be if they really put the effort soley into a PC football game. EA is smarter than that though they know that their cash cows are from consoles.

I got the 360 version last night. I played 3 games (ofline) and liked it a lot. I'm at work, so I need to make this quick.

Pros:
1. Looks great - no more frame rate issues that NCAA suffers when the whole stadium is on screen.
2. Signiture moves - It's really awesome to see Jason Taylor do his little "circle with two hands and punch through it" move when he makes a play.
3. Sound Effects - I love how the sound tunes in to your receiver's beating hard on a long pass to him. The game's effects sound great.
4. Franchise Online - You can play your whole season agaist real people. The idea was borrowed from Forza Motorsports, but I'll take it.

Cons:
1. Controller Layout - For some reason, Madden and gang thought it'd be funny to make the formation audible button of the current gen (Y on Xbox) the Jump Snap button on 360. 1st game, 9 encroachment calls. Also, they switch the COne management buttom from R Trigger to L Trigger... wtf?
2. Blur - I think I know what they did to avoid framerate issues in NCAA. They blurred the back ground. It looks good, but sometimes it's too blurred.
3. Bulkyness - For some reason, everyone looks super buff and ripped. Even Olindo Mare has Arnold Schwartzejabber arms. People all seem to big.


All in all, I like it. Can't wait to get home.

What draft were you watching? Whitner was a top 10 pick, while Allen went 16th. And Allen may be more physically talented, but that doesn't automatically make him better than Whitner. And so what if Allen isn't our starter on Madden, at this point I don't know if he's earned it yet anyways.

In every team, EA predicts which players would make the team and which players don't b/c of their release date if well before the cut dates. So usually there are going to be players in the '06 draft class that won't make the team. Nothing against the dolphins.

haha good stuff

89 -- Eli Manning's passer accuracy rating, good enough to put him in the upper tier of quarterbacks. True, this makes no sense to anyone who has ever seen Eli Manning play, but understand that the good folks at EA Sports aren't infallible. In fact, they rate just an 11 in the "accurately assigning passer accuracy" ratings category.

Some questions for the 360 version.

1) When will the DL content (sucks) be available? i.e. the alternate uniforms.

2) I know we can't edit the attributes of our players, but can we alternate their position (Sammy Morris), and appearence (when did Minor have dreadlocks)?

3) When running the 40 yard dash, what do you do once your player enters the "zone" to keep him running faster? I always just end up getting out of it as soon as I get in it, and end up with a 4.7-4.9 time.

mor911
08-22-2006, 05:06 PM
1. I have no idea when the downloadable content will be available. But simple stuff like alternate uniforms are supposed to be free.

3. I, also, suck horridly at the 40 yard dash.

How do you change their positions?

I tried creating Kevin Vickerson and it took me straight to the drills after completing his appearance. His 40 time was in the mid 5's and I only did like 2 reps (225).....He was rated a 12 overall. So in order for create-a-player to work, you have to master the drills. I'm trying to upgrade the rosters and I can never get #95 for Dan Wilkenson.

This game ****ing blows.

If you've got the 360 version, the only way to change the # of a player is to go to the FA screen and sign the player.....he will then be designated a #. If you don't like the # of the player, then reload and keep trying until you have the number you like. As for the create a player; as far as I'm concerned there is no create a player, it's based on how you do in the drills. So you can spend a good 5 minutes creating a player, then you get to the drills and do really bad.....then your created player is rated very poorly to where have have to create him over and over again until you get the attributes you see fitting.

In short.......EA can lick my balls.

Damn, I still suck at this.

Now I just did a 4.89!!!!!!!

It would be nice if I could get the the 4.3 range

Just did a 4.66.....

For anybody having trouble with the 40:

Start with either the L or R thumbstick and hold back, when the 4th beep starts let off whatever trigger you were holding down; now do that do the other thumbstick and keep alternating L, R, L, R etc. (as fast as you can in sequence), when you get close to the finish line click the right trigger.

My personal best is now a 4.57.

I have only done the bench press a couple of times, can anybody tell me how that works?

I get excited when I make a tackle. I forced a fumble behind the line, and recovered it in practice, and I almost found myself jumping up and down. The view makes it so hard though, because I'm so used to looking from the other side. I can't wait until I get an interception. I'm sure I'll go nuts.

Move both thumbsticks up, and as you enter the green on the meter, let go. Then as teh bar drops it the triggers as fast as you can(it sustains your stamina), and press up on the thumbsticks again as you enter the blue(or maybe green) on the bottom of the meter. If you hit red on either part of the meter, it really hurts your stamina. My best was 18. I don't think your size has any effect, because th guy I was using is 6'0" 185lbs.

Dolfan11
08-22-2006, 10:45 PM
Guys, just in case you haven't figured it out yet, I think I did. When doing the 40 yard dash, keep alternating between both sticks. Left, then right. Hit the stick back, then let it go (as it explains). I found that the trick is, when and if you do it consistently at a fast pace, you'll enter the zone. Once in there, you have to keep doing it at a consistent pace to stay in the zone. I ran three 4.3's already. And on the bench press. As soon as the meter hits the green let go, and immediately start hitting LT + RT, untill the meter drops right before the blue and bring it back up into the green, and repeat. Hope this helps, took me a while to figure it out.

Yeah, it's really important that you hit the triggers L and R (I do it alternately like L then R then L then R, etc. as opposed to together at once) as your bar drops back down to the blue. My highest reps thus far is a 27 (surprised me but once you hit a groove your stamina stays pretty high).

No, All you need is a fast runningback, and a QB with good arm strength, on defense just blitz with the LB thats supposed to cover the RB. Its actually really easy, there are about 6 plays out of I formation that if you use them together the right way and audible sometimes that are pretty much impossible to stop

In my Superstar mode (Xbox 360), I am a QB and I’ve been drafted by Green Bay but I don’t know when I’ve been drafted (1rst round, 2nd round…)

I realsed CJ Brooks and keith newman. I also made hadnot a C, mckinney a G(just cuz i needed another RG), put Allen's speed up to a 94 and thats all im doing. now i just started my franchise and will do WR drill with Vick

I rented Madden 07 last night for PS2.

Things I like:

-Having Culpepper be our QB! We actually have a great QB who can run and throw
-The graphics look a little better IMO
-I like the look of the 'scoreboard' at the top of the screen, especially when you score and it flashes "Touchdown" across the screen
- I LOVE how you can use '2005' controls to do things, as in you can pass, tackle, catch etc. with the same controls 2005 had as opposed to playing it 2007 style. I never liked dropping back to pass and not be able to press L2 and run with the ball if I needed. I never figured out how to do that in 2006.
-I do like the different tackle animations. Those are the types of updates that make the game great

Things I don't like:

-The commentary really isnt any different
-Some of the ratings of players dont matchup well
-To me there are too many new things. The lead blocker feature is fun, but I like to press the O button to try and get folks offsides. So far, I have realized that they dont let you do that anymore. Also, the Superstar feature CAN be fun, but I got bored with it way too quick.
-Tony Bruno's radio show is lame. ie. Paul Edinger's 'interview' PAINFUL
-I havent gotten this far yet but I imagine when you relocate a team, the logos are still the same as they were in 2005 and the stadium features are all the same too.

Overall right now I'm not that excited about this game. I used to LOVE when Madden came out, I'd buy it and play it all night. It isnt bc I'm older now that I don't like this as much, it's probably just b/c all of the new features are too much for me. Right now I still prefer MVP Baseball 2005

But I did beat Pittsburgh 32-24 last night. Welker had a 98 yd return and over 200 yds returning kicks, and Chambers had 4 catches 124 yd 2 TDs

Last night I ran a 4.5 40 btw. To do it, I put the controller in my lap and hit the L and R sticks down REALLY fast with my index fingers. Don't forget to push a stick down in the beginning to get the early boost, and don't forget to lean to the finish line with the R Trigger.

On 360 the compine is pretty basic.. I did it as a WR, so I'll tell you what they made me do. Of course the QB, RB, DB etc. will be different.

1. Run the 40 - It's really annoying. Alternately push the Left stick and right stick down to run. I average a 5.5 40 (don't laugh, it's hard).

2. Bench Press - It's not hard if you'ver played Fight Night. Basically move both sticks up into a designated green area. and back down. I can only do 5 (I'm a WR, what do you want :D ).

3. 1 on 1 with a DB - Depends onwho thay match you with. In the combine it was pretty easy, but when I was working out with scouting teams... Jeez it was hard to catch on Oakland.

Before any of that you take a good ol' IQ test. I scored a 90% on that.

i got a 90% on the IQ as well. For me there was 3 pratcies were i can choose to run the 40, swat DB, chase and tackle, KR, PR, or Cover WR. I did the Chase and takcle then teh 40 then cover WR. then at the combine u get to pick one of those and do it. Then thats it.

EDIT: im a 3rd rounder and im the starting SS with an 88 Rating. Also im allowed to mess with teh depth chart, i thought i didnt do nothing but be my guy. Also i dont liek the practices because i pick the play for the Offense AND defnse
