Posted June 16th, 2011 at 3:00 pm

A number of authentic team entrances from Madden NFL 12 were filmed off-screen at E3 but now EA Sports is following up with some direct-feed entrances of their own. The first two that have been posted feature the Baltimore Ravens and the Dallas Cowboys. Continue on to check them out and leave any thoughts in the comments!

    Wow. The sidelines are pathetic.

    • juice

      who cares. it’s the stuff on the field that most people care about. i could care less what the fans in the crowd look like or the sidelines for that matter. i wanted gameplay and features

      • http://twitter.com/BmVc1 Brandon

        Good for you. I want presentation and an accurate portrayal of the NFL all around. We don’t need to settle for one or the other. When will you gameplay idiots realize that?

        • juice

          do you want them to focus on the parking lot as well? how about player travel to the game? really does any of this matter when you play the game?

          • Phillipj2586

            agreed !!! he’s the IDIOT

          • qdog

            if you want the authenticity of the nfl then they should work on both. but the crowds or not that bad they just need to work on the reaction of the crowd like cardlover said.

          • tdot

            lol we all know you can say this stuff but in the end you’re gonna buy it anyway

        • Swiggli1211

            IF I SAY I AINT MESSN WIT EA I MEAN I AINT MESSN WIT EA (NO HYPOCRITE HERE)

    • CardLover

      I wish Madden team could’ve paid more attention to crowd (like getting up only when big plays are about to happen/has happened/boo and stay seated in all the other situations) and the right sideline reaction for maximum realism.

      But hey, I’m satisfied with improvements they have made this year.

    • http://twitter.com/JiggedOutEnt JiggedOutEnt

      all of that and all you see is that? really? lmao

  • Acreyman

    having visited Cowboys stadium recently, and having stood in that very tunnel, the entrance tunnel is bigger than that……but it still looks cool.  I wonder what happens when you are year 10 in franchise, will they still announce players by name?

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_IOPEWBPC27Z6QMSK226Z7PZRTM Ram Dude

      Their last name if it is one the computer knows like johnson and smith hahaha. I hope it will say the first name too, but I am doubting it. If it doesn’t say either. . . Lame.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_IOPEWBPC27Z6QMSK226Z7PZRTM Ram Dude

    I hope we get to see all the different entrances for every team. I know the Seahawks’ is cool because of their hawk. I just hope these aren’t the only ones we see.

    • Anonymous

      2K5 had first and last names said..lol ok im done with my 2k rants

  • Modman

    Who thinks the entrances are going to get boring? Is there a way to skip through this or the cut-scenes? Or is it typical EA where they say, we worked hard on this, so we are going to make you watch it over and over and over and…..

    • juice

      your right. after a few games of your favorite team, your just going to want to skip the intros. everyone does it. you’ll pry just be able to push A to skip it i hope

      • http://www.facebook.com/JPMBFriday Pat Burrows

         Also I wonder what it’s going to do a couple years into dynasty mode when ray lewis retires…is he still gonna come out with the team or are they gonna put another player in the animation orrrr just cut that part out, hope they thought of little details like this, makes the game imo

        • Xcef2008

          Just asked that question before seeing you say the same thing. Hopefully its not the case where some random person starts doing the animation after Lewis is gone. 

      • qdog

        believe it or not i actually will watch the whole entrance if it is a big game like playoffs, super bowls, and rival games, it just adds to the atmosphere of the game ya know. now if its a game that doesn’t matter like a 5-10 team vs. a 6-9 team then u skip because really no one is interested in a game of losing teams. no need for a hyped atmosphere. guess i’m the only one who do this.lol….glad they have it in though.

        • http://stonemetodeath.tumblr.com Ashton Ron-Ga’briel

          I actually do the same thing. When I’m playing my franchise and I’m all alone, I like to let things like that hype me up. Especially during the playoffs and Superbowl.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Bobby-Schonger/100000306175444 Bobby Schonger

    can you please post anything dolphins related

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Bobby-Schonger/100000306175444 Bobby Schonger

    say your playing superstar and your the starting qb for the cowboys, how cool would it be to run out and this all being in a first person view, im praying that they did this.

    • Kdarnell

      That’ll probably be next years #1 feature haha

  • Anonymous

    every other game is it gonna switch between offense and defense for entrances? and what happens to the ravens entrance when that crazy ass retires?

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_FDHTJKV7CEJ5EO5AM35ZPGNF2Y Carter

    that ray lewis dance is the sickest shit ive seen

  • SomeRandomAsshole

    When Romo is running out of the tunnel he’s running towards the endzone (seemingly from the 25 yard line, you can see the goal post) with no one in front of him, however when they cut to the wide shot he’s running toward midfield (from the sidelines) with cheerleaders and his teammates in front of him.  What was EA thinking?

    • Hockeyboy123

      Yeah, I noticed that too, huge mistake. The tunnel starts from the middle of the field.

  • Samig

    The Patriots entrance shouldnt have the starters called out individually. I hope its not like that.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_SEE3CZHNRNLFDZXHUYYYE3MXJY Sami

    ssssss

  • Jwallace0317

    So, if you take over the Ravens in franchise mode, and it’s year 5 and Ray Lewis is retired, will your shitbird rookie MLB be the guy doing the dance at the end of the team entrance? lol

  • Anonymous

    why are the sidelines so empty? they need to add a bunch of cameramen, press people, security etc.. the field looks really boring.

  • Kdarnell

    While great, all these team entrances are goons be skipped after a few times…then all attention will go to gameplay. So it better be good EA or expect the same complaints.

  • Johngarrett55

    NOBODY CARES ABOUT THIS EA!!! YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT I WANT GAMEPLAY,MORE FEATURES IN SUPERSTAR MODE, AND I GOOD HALF TIME SHOW!!!! NOT RAY LEWIS ENTRANCE FOR THE 1000TH TIME!!! INSTEAD OF WASTING TIME ON THIS PUT THIS TIME INTO SOMETHING ELSE!!

    • Phoenix

      Considering they have a new animation system, revamped coverage a.i. 100+ changes to the franchise and superstar modes, and the dynamic player performance system they have given you that stuff.

    • HaloUnion

      I care, so you’re already wrong.

  • Remyruss

    i hope they have the steelers terrible towel

    • BlackendCat

      To wipe their tears away when Ray Lewis takes care of them?

  • who dat!?

    Looks nice. Just reading everyone’s comments. Just like everyone else, I wanna know about first and last names, offense and defense rotation intro, and what happens after year 1 as far as intro goes. No biggie, just asking.

  • Xcef2008

    So here’s a question: Say I decided to trade Ray Lewis or just say he retired. Would the Ravens animation change? Or would some random person suddenly start doing Ray’s dance before each game?

    • Jerry Holeman

      What happens if Tony Romo gets hurt mid season will John Kitna get the intro?  Also I don’t like the love affair hand-shakes going on with the Redskins.  To big of a rival for that in the beginning of a game.  It still looks nice though, cosmetically.

  • huejac2

    Where hell is Tanard Jackson for the Bucs and hope they do something about illegle substitutions.  Everybody has DB at receiver these days.  If the doesn’t have that package you shouldn’t be able to  do it manually.  At the very least you see DB in the personal groupings. Eample: 1 WR, 1DB, 2TE and 1 RB.

  • http://stonemetodeath.tumblr.com Ashton Ron-Ga’briel

    Did anyone notice that the head coaches do the same thing on every team’s entrance? Not that it’s a big deal, it does bug me a bit though. Not sure why. I’m excited for the saints entrance though. Who Dat?!

  • http://twitter.com/MJFobbe Matthew Fobbe

    The entrances themselves look awesome, but it’s what EA does down the road in franchise, (my guess is whoever your MLB is will replace lewis for the dance, which is lame) that will make or break this feature. Also disappointed with the action on the sidelines, at a real nfl game the sidelines are teeming with media, asst. coaches, players, security and tons of other people, the sidelines seem comparatively bare here. Also i wonder if they have details like those sideline boxes at Cowboys stadium.

  • Nytwriter

    What a bunch of losers whiners and complainers. The game looks awesome..hopefully it plays that way. I for one am optimistic. “What happens if I trade Ray Lewis, What happenns if Romo gets hurt..will they change the Team entrances. You cry about 3-d grass you get that ,,,not happy..cry about custom playbooks..you get that still not happy. Why aren’t there more people on the sideline??  Duh..its a VIDEO GAME..NOT REAL LIFE!! Its a sim. EA, who has not always put out the best product are showing dramatic strides thus far..but they cannot create real life..there will be flaws..but overall if it looks good and is fun..can we please just be excited about that..may be all the football we have this year Geez!!!  :(

    • Amir

      I must agree wit u no one is ever happy wit way they have been given they try so hard to make the game amazing but ppl r not thank full for way they have till it’s gone I appreciate every madden game they give us it’s fun no matter wat yea they got flaws but be real wal game dont idc wat game it is it’s got flaws ppl need to learn to be thankfull take wat u been given or leave it n don’t buy it everyone says I’m not buyn madden this year n yet u go n buy it anyway do y ain’t u ppl happy bout anything Daz my question?

      • Nytwriter

        I know its crazy. Thus far, this is the best looking madden I have ever seen….and custom playbooks is something I have wanted for a long time…Ppl will complain about the cheerleaders smiling to hard…really? When have you EVER seen a cheerleader on the sideline not smiling. “Where are the popcorn vendors?” How come I cant drive a video ar to the game and park….lol..complain complain complain..I think the game will have a few bugs..but it will be fun!!    NOW IF EA IS CONCERENED ABOUT THE ENTRANCES GETTIN OLD…EA here is an idea…custom stadium music for the entrances,,like it was in 2k5..that would be really nice.

  • Hockeyboy123

    WOW, pasta, i hope EA knows that from Cowboy’s entrance video around 53-54 when Romo is coming out, he’s running towards the endzone with the goalposts clearly visible. What a huge huge mistake. Makes it seem like the tunnel is in the middle of the field.

    • http://twitter.com/ryanthelou Ryan Lewis

      This is a pretty legitimate bug.  I’m assuming that this will get worked out before it ships, but who knows?

  • http://twitter.com/Mason_drews Mason Drews

    So sick how Romo comes out and slaps all their hands. . . he does the exact same thing in real life!

    Nobody cares about cosmetics. It’s all about game play. I don’t know why they keep wasting time with how the game looks. If they game play sucks like it has over the past 4 years the cute cheerleaders ain’t gonna matter

  • Anonymous

    Good to hear that these NFL 12 were filmed off-screen. I having a unique presentation and accurate portraya. I am caring about EA, so that i am gonna buy it.

  • SilkCB21
