ellbanks, from what I see its 80% the same garb-itch as last year, besides the locomotion gimmick. Too bad Backbreakers view cripples the game.......

New commentators wont make the game play better everyone! Dont let em fool you or take your mind of of the games horrible gameplay and glitches. They can dress the game up and give it a nice soundtrack and voice overs but at the end of the day, we're down 60 bucks and we have a peice of crap to hold us off one more year until someone steps up and challenges EA. Why cant they be more like EA Sports' Hockey team, they make a significant improvement every year.

This game still looks like last year, except a better run animation and some new gimmicks like locomotion. I played the Backbreaker demo, and beside the terrible camera angle that game is amazing. No canned animations, everyone has real physics, no sliding and morphing. Now watching these Madden videos aint the same, players sliding and diving on the ground to give the illusion that theyre in on the tackle when its really a 2 player animation. I bet they didnt even improve pro tak either, I'm sick of new presentations and gimmicks! make the game playable! I dont care who commentates, I dont care if Drew Brees pumps up his team and they drink gatorade on the sidelines! I just want a functioning game! And we shouldnt have to mess with sliders to make the game work. We're getting played everyone! Peace! Go Eagles!

Al Michaels and John Madden CANNOT be beat. Chris Collensworth was ok... this guy just looks like a thug and sounds like the annoying guy talking S@#t to me after an interception... I might have to mute them.. think about this... excited commentator after a 2 yard run... thats gonna get annoying 40 times a game in 20 minutes.

@honkeytot You do realize the opening lines were from Brian Eckberg himself, and it was supposed to be a joke. Also keep in mind that all the lines we heard are all in pre-alpha, and super early right now.

Uhhh this sounds awful. The problem was never the voice but the lines and the timing of them. In '10 they just repeated stupid lines over and over.

He looks like a fcking tool with a really small head. Wasn't expecting a professional commentator to look like that. Anyways, how about Alex Smith's ice skating skillz! Dats Da Truf YO!!!

So I see they brought back the crappy old kick meter from 10 years ago. LOL. I remember when they touted the "kick" meter they stole from their golf games where you swing the analog stick as a big new feature. Now we're back to the 90's kick meter.

Gus Johnson is excellent! He can make a 1 yard gain sound exciting. He does the Knicks games and really brings the game to life. He should replace Jim Nance for the Final 4 games and finals. Gus sounds way more into it. Nance is a GOLF announcer.
