Hasn't it always been this away?
Or at least it's been this way with SuperSim games.
*team is down 7 under 2 minutes to go at there own 20*
I thought the AI did a decent job with playcalls last year. Maybe at the end of the first half they wouldn't always manage the clock wisely. But when it came down to winning or losing a game, I thought they did a good job. This was on All-Pro, by the way. I'm playing a game on All-Madden now to see if it makes any difference.
In this All-Madden game, I've seen some horrible dropped passes. Like wide the hell open, looking right at the ball, and just doesn't catch it. One was to Helu and the other was to Morgan (78 and 83 catch ratings). This is the kind of "realism" that gets on my nerves. Yes, players drop easy catches sometimes. But this is a video game. If I make the right read and outsmart the defense, arbitrarily punishing me because somebody was "due" for a drop just pisses me off, lol. Just make the game about skill and leave the dumb luck out of it. If they want to make the game harder by making the defense play better, that would be awesome. But randomly screwing my team over doesn't equal a higher difficulty level.
EDIT - I do have to say though, player movement looks a lot better. I think that's EA's biggest strength...making the game look very smooth and crisp. The presentation is all right. I don't know that Jim Nantz and Phil Simms really bring anything different...but it takes a big effort to change the commentary completely, so you have to give them credit for that.
EDIT 2 - Ugh...for now I guess I'll just chalk this up to it being the Redskins, but in this All-Madden game, there were two drops, Griffin fumbled twice, and threw a pick because after the pump fake, it took so long to throw to the open receiver that the safety came down from over the top and jumped in front of him. Meanwhile, Matt Flynn threw a hail mary into quadruple coverage at the end of the first half and his receiver came up with it. That's enough for now, lol.
