    I was wondering if there were any Madden fans here. If so, what do you guys think some of our star players will be rated? I think Carr is going to be an 83 overall. And I would say Johnson will be an 85 and D.D a 84. What do you guys think?

    Don't know but Madden going Xbox Live is just awesome. ESPN is looking great on paper as well.

    Carr- 83...strong arm (probably around 95), no touch (in the game), won't show his realistic foot speed (ie much faster than folks give him credit for in the open field)
    AJ- 85
    DD- 85...up from the low 70's last year!!
    Glen- 90+
    Sharper- 90
    Walker- mid 80's

    Dunta....mmmm let's say around 80-82
    Babs in the low to mid 70's...maybe not that high, might not be enough info on him to give him a realistic grade.

    Speaking of...how the heck does EA come up with their ratings/grades on players? I've always wondered that. :um:

    You are the one who obviously knows nothing about video games to say that. EVERYONE compares those 2 games against eachother. They are the two most dominant football sports game period. You may like ESPN or madden more, but that doesnt mean that everyone likes that one more. Get a clue.

    Doesn't matter which game you like better as long as you like playing it. I don't think it's a big deal either way, ESPN and Madden both have good points and it depends on what aspects you personally like.

    I am not sure if any of you have been to this madden website, but WOW... if all this is true, it will be awesome on the defensive side of the ball. http://www.maddenguides.com/madden2005e3.html

    and boy do I like the jetpacking "fix" .. That irritates me so many times playing my game.

    The only thing espn had on madden was xbox live. graphics and gameplay are way better in madden. You're talking to a pro. I've been a game tester before. My team won the Halo Team USA Tournement in Orlando. I have gottten to review games and test them. Madden's mode are much better from a technological standpoint.

    As far as I am concerned there is nothing better than Madden. Anyway, I think Madden is as close as you can get to the real NFL.

    EA has a scouting team kinda like the NFL does and they scout and watch film on all the players and improve or decline their ratings based on what they played like last year. Last I read, EA was just finnishing yp their NCAA player ratings and they are about to start on Madden.

    Oh and on that Madden, ESPN thing. i dont think ESPN can hold a candle to Madden. With the playmaker and owner mode, along with this years improvements,you cant even put them in the same category.madden 2005 franchise This is great.

    Thanks for the info on the EA scout team Buffsoldier...I figured that it was something like that. Would love to see a Q&A or interview with those guys and ask them what they were smoking when they rated some of the players.
