Well, if BF2 ran like crap on your machine...


Point taken... I'm still not certain I will be able to run it on my new machine at full details.

The franchise has not declined in my opinion Scott.  

I think you should look forward to 2142.  Furthermore, I think you should plan on getting the game and playing with us.

Next question?

 :wink:


What he said.  BF:V was a LOT of fun, but I can definitely understand how it frustrated some from a technical standpoint (as technically, it was a bloody mess).

I honestly cannot fathom anyone who liked BF 1942 NOT liking BF2, however.

I am super stoked for BF2142.

See I don't notice any of these issues, or rather, they aren't large ones.  The only one that bothers me a bit (other than the sack thing) is fumble recoveries, which is like an episode of Three Stooges playing out on a football field.  But then again, that's a lot like how real fumble recoveries are, so I don't mind so much.

No, but you get phantom sacks instead!  Also, I've seen LBs slide to make a play or knockdown/pick off a ball.


Yeah the phantom sacks are super annoying too.  Thankfully they don't happen that often and I don't have nearly the pocket presence to avoid someone who breaks free of a block anyway.  If it ain't a blitz and someone breaks free, I'm getting sacked regardless.

I just didn't like the implementation.  NFL2k5 was already very arcadey to start, and this made it more so to me.  The players moved a bit to quickly, cut to quickly, etc.  I'd personally rather see the stats dictate the game play more.


God... that just reminded me of my super #1 pet peeve with the NFL2kX gameplay.  The Superman tackle.  I swear to god some of those linebackers would actually FLY if you charged up and dove to tackle.  Like fly for 5 yards, break every law of physics, and make the tackle type flight.  SO ANNOYING.

And seeing how absolutely bad and broken the franchise modes for NHL2KX and MLB2KX are, I'd have to disagree with you slywink.  


The only part of that I will respond to is that Visual Concepts developed NFL, NBA, and CHoops.  While NHL and MLB were developed by Kush.  So that argument is not quite relevant.


That would certainly explain a lot.  I just lump then under the same umbrella as just about all of the 2KX games (other than the basketball ones, I believe) have had serious franchise bugs over the years.  I will definitely agree that NFL and NBA/NCAA are leagues ahead of NHL and MLB though.

I would argue that 2K5 really forces you to call the right plays and be good manually with your safety in order to play good defense.  Especially against human opponents.  Unlike EA football games where you can call quarters and let your CPU defenders make plays.


You call ANY play repeatedly against me in Madden and I will absolutely shred you.  I don't like football games that require "good stick" (god I hate that term).  I'd honestly rather just let my defense play for me assuming I made the right call.  I was praying NFL Head Coach would be better than it was... but instead it sucked.  Different strokes for different folks though.

Quote
I agree that the franchise mode in Madden (current gen) is much better than 2K5 was.  But considering how good the single player in NBA 2Kx and College Hoops has gotten over the last 2 years I think VC would have made great improvments to the football game by now in that area.


And seeing how absolutely bad and broken the franchise modes for NHL2KX and MLB2KX are, I'd have to disagree with you slywink.  The NFL2KX series always had a very substandard franchise mode, and instead of trying to fix their broken AI and logic, they added more crap on top that just broke it even further.  Very disappointing.

Quote
But nothing compares to playing in an online league with drafts and trades, with full injury tracking and rosters that carry over from season to season.  2K5 had that and EA STILL isn't even talking about that stuff yet for Madden.


Honestly, I never once did an online league as I doubt I'd ever be able to find more than 5 people who play a style of game I find enjoyable.  So while in those features sound quite awesome, and I don't deny that there were certainly many folks like yourself that loved them, they were totally lost on me.

Well, at least you can actually run in this game, but you have to make too many juke moves to do it.

The long ball looks like the way to go....just like previous Madden games.

Do we get the crappy radio commentators again?  I didn't hear any announcer during the gameplay video.

Yeah, just looks like another Madden release, just made prettier for the 360.


Dude... are you watching the same video I am?  This is a pretty significant step forward for Madden, at least in the graphics and animation category (which is all you can judge the video by).  Wow.

gellar

You can polish a turd, but it's still a turd.

I think that the game looks good.  Still, from what I can see, it's the same old gameplay.


Considering most sources out there are saying the game is vastly improved, I think calling it a turd, based off of a video short, is wrong.

I'm not saying you are one of these types of people, but the people, who are still hung up on the 2K football series, and still hold on to this hatred towards EA, need to just let.....it.....go. Before someone calls me an EA fanboy, let me say that I always enjoyed the 2K series for fun, especially online, but for season sim-like football, I personally have always enjoyed Madden.


I'll still wait to play the game, but after seeing bomb after bomb after bomb in a single video, it doesn't give me very much hope.  Yes, I did like the 2K series more than Madden, but those videos did little to prove to me that it's much improved.  I'm heavily skeptical, and I think that is good for someone in my position.


I think they showed bomb after bomb just because you know... slants and incomplete passes make for a pretty shitty highlight video slywink

Because people might still be playing the older games? Because people are tired of paying $50 for basically the same exact game (but with updated stats and slightly different gameplay) each and every year?


And why should EA give a shit?

Does MS still support Windows 98?  Products get end of lifed.  I'm sure EA spent enough time and money determining whether or not the 50 or so people this adversely affected's loyalty was worth the thousands of dollars per year it was costing them to run the servers.  I'm relatively certain it was a sound financial decision.

Not to be a dick, but game company's jobs are to make money.

Exactly. Come on fellas, really, why devote resources to March Madness 2005, when nobody is playing it? The terms of service EA has, that we all agree to when we sign up to play something online, or buy a game of theres, states that EA reserves the right to cancel online service for those games, at a time they choose.

This just isn't a big deal.

Great.  Now, as my Half Back places himself behind my offensive tackle and runs in place Mario-style, the HD animations will be most impressive.  Notice that in the trailer, they only show RBs going around the corner or off-tackle.  Nothing shown with a run stuffed at the line and a RB slipping through.

Gang tackling?  Player size/weight momentum?  A DB/WR passing system that actually makes sense?  RBs pushing through actual holes instead of juke animation running?

Bah.  I'll buy it of course... but I ain't gonna be happy about it.  Again.


Well said.


I dunno... NCAA does this pretty well, I think.  Every now and then my RB gets stuck, but it's quite rare and I tend to run the ball a lot.  After giving it a lot of time, I honestly think it's the best football game I've ever played.

I assume that they can share some of what they've done with the Madden folks, giving me great hopes for this year's Madden game to be quite amazing, really.

I agree about the presentation and that is about it.  2k5 had a lot of problems with zone coverage which made it possible for your opponent to gain a first down by running with the QB, even if they were a slow pocket passer.  Another thing, if you had a WR in single coverage all you had to do was simply send him on a fly, post, or corner route and he would be wide open for a TD 80% of the time.  I'm not going to say that 2k was the only game with problems though, there has never been a perfect football game and probably never will be.  EA does need to get with the times and update their presentation though, I cant stand when you finish a game and it just goes to the quit screen with nothing, no recap, no highlights, no commentary NOTHING.  I HATE THAT!


Could not have said it better myself.  Totally agree 100%.  I'd also like to add that 2k5's franchise was utterly broken.

I do agree with the OP about one thing.  The game was amazingly pretty for it's time.  It did stomp a mudhole into Madden for that.
