Madden 17

Thu Aug 18, 2016 2:00 pm

Anyone getting it this year? I have EA Access so I was able to play it last night and I must say it was fun. juke moves are much improved and blocking kicks is actually possible. additionally they changed the kicking from using the right stick to a 3 click system (think old school Tiger Woods gm). while this seems like it would be easier, 40yd fgs are not a gimmie. my online opponent missed two attempts from relatively makeable distances.

all in all the gm seems to have taken a step forward over last years which should be the case but isn't necessarily true all the time.

Last Friday was the most excited my kids ever got over Madden 16. We took to Best Buy and traded it in for a $10 off coupon on Madden 17 plus a $15 gift card for trading it in ($16.50 if you're an unlock club member like I am). My fiancee is going to go get it Tuesday.

Okay Madden still sucks. Forget about trying to play defense on All Madden. This new tackling system is horrid. RBs break 4-5 tackles on nearly every run, when you take control of a defender they stop completely for an instance which allows a ball carrier to race to the endzone. Oh and CPU defenses still play nothing but perfect zone coverage and the defenders cover an insane amount of ground leading to the most ridiculous INTs. If your receiver gets hit on a catch they drop the ball.

The supposed kick/punt blocking absolutely doesn't work even if you time everything perfectly.

Overall terrible product by EA yet again

Eh, I'll get it when it when it's added to the EA Access vault.

Copy and paste this into any thread on any Madden product for the last two decades or so and you've got an end-thread situation.

Two decades is a bit much. I remember 2004 was an excellent game.

I don't know, I've been playing it since release and I still enjoy it. I think this is the best Madden to date (which it should be.. but still).

2K games were always worlds better. And then Backbreaker came out a while back and I figured within a few years we would have an incredible physics engine in general and a great feeling for the running game (the passing game was atrocious in that game, but the running game was incredible) in football games that would only get better and better as the years went on. But no. Madden is almost exactly the same, year after year, and the feel of it is awful.

Also, it's practically detrimental to manually catch and defend, beyond switching to that character a split-second before the ball gets there and pressing one button. There are tonnes of things to do pre-snap, but you have to do them each time and run out of time against a human opponent half the time. Hitting turbo on running plays before your blockers are engaged makes them completely whiff. It's a long list of complaints, as usual, and they're pretty much the same as they have been for a while.

I'll play it when it's free on EA Access for a bit, if I have nothing else to play at that point, but I'm not even looking forward to it.

I'm enjoying it..playimg mostly MUT so far..one of the better maddens in a while. One thing tho, does anyone play draft champions? Is there not a way to turn off the auto jukes and running line? Its only on draft champs..mut is normal. I hate it.

Wow the rreceiver drops are ridiculous in this game. Also, I mainly play online and there have been a few times when I've made someone quit But it doesn't count as a loss for them. What gives?

if you play on xbox, send me an invite. GT=BucZone Username

Not sure I ever checked my opponents record to see if they get the L but I know that I receive a W when they quit. However I did see once that I got an L when leading 21-7 and a disconnect occurred and I believe the issue was on the opponents side as I never lost connectivity, so that sucked.

funny thing I've noticed, I've played 90 ranked matches and all with the Bucs. Never had I seen anyone else using the bucs until the tail end of the 5 gm win streak, which I came across 2 opponents picking the bucs to play against me.

I'm on ps4. But ive lost a few games also due to loss of connection when I was leading. And the people that quit before hand, there's been at least 4-5 that don't receive the loss even though I received the win.
I mainly play with the Bucs also, and have played 3 times against someone using the Bucs too

I traded Madden in a couple months back when it still had a little trade value. It should be going into the EA Access vault very soon; last year it was added the week of the Super Bowl. For those of us playing on XB1 anyway.

Wish there was a chance to get the NCAA series BC and in the vault(Though I'd buy it instantly). Way better then the NFL games.

Re: Madden 17

Yeah, no doubt. NCAA was always my favorite sports game. Hopefully we'll get a new game in a few years after the dust settles from the lawsuit, but who knows.

Unfortunately I doubt it ever comes back.

Re: Madden 17

Mon Jan 30, 2017 10:43 am

Probably not. At least not until the NCAA lets EA compensate the players(which they won't). Sad thing is, everyone wants it. Players, fans, hell even a coach said they'd want it back.

If it does ever come back, I hope they move back to the phone call recruiting system instead of the points system from 14

Idk if anyone is still playing this, but wow have they increased the fumbles in online head to head. In guaranteed to fumble at least once a game, usually when I'm in the red zone. So frustrating.

you'll enjoy it a ton. Whenever I've taken a few years off, I've always enjoyed the enhancements much more than when I was playing every year. Madden17 was/is pretty good (IMO) and I would still be playing it now if Rocket League didn't own my soul.

The highlight of my life so far is my team coming back from being down 6-1, and winning 8-7 in OT in rocket league. Everything else just pails in comparison
