Madden 11 Review
If you’ve played any of the recent Madden games, especially last years, Madden 11 will feel familiar. That isn’t a bad thing, in fact it is one of the key selling points for a lot of fans.
You see this years title builds on an already strong foundation that its predecessors have built up over the years. And this review of Madden 11 is here to point out some of the improvements.
First, the newest release in the franchise has improved running. Gone are the days where you need to press “Sprint,” and even if it had been included in the game it would be rather pointless. The reason for this is that the game focuses on the carrier, you have to hit the right holes and get your blocks right. When you can do this Madden 11 reacts accordingly to your player’s abilities.
This is an excellent design direction, but it goes further and the removal of “Sprint” is just the tip of a massive iceberg of new features.
It doesn’t matter where you run, downhill towards the A-Gap or the sidelines for a perfectly executed Stretch the offensive line responds accordingly. This shows you how spot on the AI is. And you no longer have to watch as players haplessly smash into one another and fall down. In fact they actually act like they are playing real football.
Which brings us to our next major improvement. Madden 11 actually feels like you are watching an actual broadcast of Sunday Night. And that isn’t an exaggeration. This game has made a major effort to give you the real feeling. Pre-game commentary included.
Rapping this Madden 11 review up, there is one thing I am sure you’re asking yourself. And the ninja isn’t one to hold out. The franchise mode is still as kick ass and expansive as it ever was. The online modes are outstanding and the stadiums look beautiful.
