Madden 09 Tackles Trailer

Madden NFL 2009 `Tackles` Trailer

I didn’t think that there was much of a difference between Madden 08 and 09 from the screenshots that PSU had compiled, and after seeing the trailer above, I’m still not convinced. While it’s not in HD running at 60 frames, you can still see the way the players animate and I don’t really feel like this is much of a leap forward in the technology department from Madden.

So what do you think? Perennial Madden hater or not, do you see much of an improvement over last year’s Madden?

SSDR, Same Different Rosters. See this is what happens when you eliminate your competition by snatching up the rights to a license. 2K sports made a better (in many regards) NFL game and made it cheaper, EA saw them as a threat to their bankroll and eliminated it…and the need to improve. EA Sports can go out and catch themselves an airborne monkey virus and die.
Backbreaker has physics driven tackling with the Euphoria engine (GTA IV, Force Unleashed) and the tackles look infinitely better than this pre-animated crap. Unfortunately without the NFL license it’ll never be the success that Madden is, and Tiburon/EA have no motivation to do anything to better their product. EA = Ma Bell for games.

I agree with you to an extent, but I’m willing to give them the benefit of the doubt this year and next, because I really don’t think Peter Moore wants to shovel the same thing out year after year.
