Madden 11 was the talk of the sports side at E3. EA Sports unveiled several new options and changes for the Madden video game franchise at E3. Madden 11 online team play, faster play calling, and better A.I. are all new features coming to the Turducken of video game franchises.
EA Sports rolled out the red carpet for Madden 11 at E3. It all started with a presentation by Super Bowl MVP and NFL Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Montana. Joe Montana was on hand to promote the improved game calling functions in Madden 11. EA Sports promises to make the game calling aspect of the game as real as possible. The play calling system will have players on offense calling plays from a “headset.” It was really hard to get a grasp on how exactly that is going to work. If the hype is true, the game calling will give players on offense a more real-game feel of calling the play in the huddle like your favorite quarterback.
The biggest news coming out the E3 week was Madden Online Team Play. Madden Online Team Play will give three players per team the chance to control individual positions such as quarterback, lineman, running back, etc. The idea is to give players accountability for missed blocks, not getting to the hole in time, etc. One review from E3 stated that there was significant lag time in some camera angles of the mode. With a little over a month to go, EA better get cracking!
