I've been pretty patient with this game, but I dont think I like it. All of my friends refuse to play it with me. I am used to playing on the PC with a bad ass computer, so this game is really disappointing me on wii. controls and graphics and even just the menus annoy me. Its not that im unwilling to adapt to the new controls. The new controls are the only reason ive hung in there so long, I like them. When I play with my friends, I have to play on their other systems with wacky controls, so Im used to the adaptation.
OK. I wanted see if you guys could help me with some pretty specific madden stuff.
Do you guys have trouble with QB vision? It seems like when I drop back, 50% of the time, the qb vision registers back and forth over the field. So, in the heat of battle, I drop back, see a guy rushing me, and start franticly scanning my TV (wii sensor) hoping the vision cone will show up. However, the QB is staring off to one side and the vision cone is floating up at about 1MPH. like Im AFK or AFWii or whatever. I can even try this in practice mode, and sometimes im just sitting there screaming "hello!!!!!!" and waving the controller with no vision cone. Ive tried moving back. I even went from a 19" to a 42" TV over christmas, so Ive tried it at all angles and distances.
You notice, its impossible pretty much to move the D-line and then select a safety to be before the snap? It is so ridiculous to spread the line. Point at a lineman, hold A, shift wherever with direction key, then point at safety. It sounds easy and is something I do on almost every play on the pc, xbox, or PS2.
Can you rotate through players back or left? A goes right right right right right through your guys, but on this system, you cant go back back back. just the pointing, which is as easy as heart surgury.
2 player mode. me and my friends just laugh at how, since you have to point at the play you are choosing, the other player has to turn around to not see your play. You are both pointing out the play you are gonna pick!!! there are no cool ways of hiding like on the other systems.
I just got an HD TV. Can anyone tell me if the graphics look any better with those expensive HD component cables for the wii? the graphics look like total ass, but im skeptical of the component cable. $100 says i plug it in and see 0 difference.
thought i had more, but I can always post later. Any thoughts fellow Madden dorks?
