Having played the demo I can see the game designers still need to work on peoples' eyes: they look so glassy and manic. Also the feet still look like they're just 'gliding' across the ground instead of making actual contact.
This demo was not that bad, the game seems much better than the past and its the demo. I have not played a madden in about 3 years now as i decided to get one every so often since its a rip off year to year. Was pretty smooth and tackling much better than before and also running is much better too. Did they get rid of the sprint button?
Seriously dude, I mean, we gotta have standards right? Just the other day I was playing Rift when we were on the end boss and I thought 'wait, are his eyes glassy and manic looking?' I just logged the hell off, disgusted.
Agree with Exyll. Imagine you are playing this game at the 4th quarter with 30 seconds left on the clock. You look at your team on TV and their eyes are glassy and manic. How do I know if I can trust them?
Forget about the game play; forget about the roaster; forget about the new rules; forget about any new bugs or lingering bugs. I want to look at their eyes and know they will walk this journey with me.
"Also the feet still look like they're just 'gliding' across the ground instead of making actual contact." I too felt the same way. I would like to see EA developers put effort into making running animation more legit by having players make ground contact and not this gliding hockey motion B.S.
