Introducing Obi Wan Madden And Your Madden 2009 IQ

Monday, June 09, 2008

These Madden 2009 videos are popping up everywhere, and I'm sorry for hitting you with two in a day, but this one is just completely odd. The premise for the clip seems pretty awesome, but the execution seems, as Shutdown Corner explains....Tron-like.

The clip is of yet another new Madden 2009 feature called Madden IQ and it's a system that lets the computer gauge your strengths and weaknesses and responds accordingly. You do a few drills and then the Computer's game is supposed to to adapt to your skills. The drills themselves are explained to you by a glowing John Madden and then you practice them as digital figures. Here's the clip.....

I guess it's good that Madden actually is in the game, but I'd rather have him announcing than leading me through drills. That might just be me though.

So where it says "work in progress" on the screen, does that mean that they'll eventually have the drill with real players? Or are the yellow and purple wireframe characters there to make it feel more like you're actually calibrating the AI or something?

The new "hear everyone huffing and puffing feature" is a little weird...

These are not the drills you're looking for. Move along.

Now, if they could only get around to fixing the next-gen gameplay so that pushing buttons feels like more than activating a series of animations. Last year's game was about about 100 times better on xbox than it was on the 360 - not sure why.
