Latest Madden 10 Preview and Screens

Posted May 15th, 2009 at 11:53 am


IGN has posted up hands-on impressions of Madden 10. While the preview does touch primarily on areas of the game that have already been discussed there are more in-depth details to be found. There are also 14 new screenshots which you can take a look at here. The screens focus on QBs and pocket protection.

Keep in mind that there are some big announcements still under wraps for Madden with some of them coming at E3. That is what I’m really waiting on to provide some excitement for this year. Items such as Pro-Tak, presentation, and early gameplay thoughts are offered in the preview which you can check out in full here.

Presentation, something that was seriously lacking in the first Madden iterations on current-gen systems, has seen a nice overhaul. Pre-game you’ll notice camera angles that show concession stands handing hot dogs to fans and people making their way to their seats. During the action there will be detailed cutscenes (not the low-resolution models like in last year’s game) showing players warming up on the sideline. If your quarterback is taking a licking on the field you’ll see him trot over to the sideline and pick up a phone to talk to the coach’s box.
