PREVIEWSPillars of Eternity Preview
For Obsidian's crowdfunded love letter to Infinity Engine games like Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate, I was impressed by its willingness to pull back the curtain and let me see the machinery behind it.
We've all been there. Everyone remembers that mission. You and your partner are climbing up the mountains in the snow, striving to pull some slick clandestine operation about getting some intel on a bad guy, or something similar (because let's face...
Well, I've owned every Madden & this '07 is by far the worst Madden I've ever played! The graphics are the same & could of been made better. I am glad they got rid of the "EA Sports, its in the game!" at the start up of the game. Plus your saved data loads nice & quick. The thing that makes me mad is that I upload the draft from NCAA '07 (Which is an awesome game!) & when you train your players in Franchise Modes' off-season training camp in like year three & on, they messed up. Like for example... if you try to train your back-up QB for Precision Passing, it loads up the rookie level first & your starting QB is actually on the field running the drill instead of your back-up. Once you pass the rookie level & move to pro & so on, your back-up will finally be the one running the drill. I thought there was a problem with my game & switched it for a new one, but all of them I've tried had this. I don't even think they spent time or much money on this years game. Its almost as bad as the street racing games SRS & Juiced! I believe they used last years graphics & memory then put in a couple new moves & rosters. I mean its a joke & was a waste of money in my book! I bet next years will be as bad or worse. Madden is just taking money & running with it; or thats the way I feel!
