I hope this doesnt get moved to general cuz it will be pushed to page 2 in minutes to make room for more of them free post threads.

Anyway, tell us your franchise or superstar story. ANd you thoughts on the new game.

Im doing the new superstar mode. My player is a QB. He was drafted in Round 2 by the Redskins :frusty: and not the Jets. I went thru one season already with a record of 10-6. Lost in the divisional playoffs. I did win Rookie of the year tho! Im not really feelin this new mode. Im thinkin of finishing up my second year and going back to the good ol franchise mode. When you audition for a movie, its really lame. All you do is they show you three pages of the script, or 4 pages, and you have to remember the lines. And you only have 4-5 options with your agent. Complain for more play time, complain about coaches, guerentee a win/playoffs, announce retirement.

The new precision passing is dope. I love being able to lead the receiver in a pass. Ive read about peeps complaining over the difficulty in passing and its just bs. If you know what your doing, you wont get sacked, and if you know what your doing, the precision passing can work greatly in your favor.And the truck stick is nice too. Being able to plow thrru the D with your RB.

Damn kid you must be playing on rookie if you like the new precision passing. It's a good idea but if you get a shitty quarterback, their shaded light sucks. I like these games to be real as can be and i just don't see throwing like that is fair for all players. Manning, Favre, Brady and Culpepper can easily throw for 400 yards in that game, but other guys will only throw for maybe 200 with at least 3 interceptions. Maybe I just need to get use to it.

I'm not playing superstar mode yet, but I messed around with it for a while. It looks pretty cool even though they stole the idea from ESPN football from last year. I started franchise mode, I made my own team, the Las Vegas Killa Bees. Overall though it's still a good game.

Im not on rookie kid. Maybe you just suck at the game. Get use to it and like I said, it will be to your advantage. I like being able to throw where Im directing it, and not just press a button and have the computer decide how far ahead or behind to put it to the receiver. And I dont know how many minutes of a game you play, but I never get even 400 TOTAL yards. The beauty is if you dont like the precision passing, you can turn it off.

Dont worry Gambino, all the Sports games will stay in here. I wouldn't want to sacrifice them to the hole we call General chat

my buddy got it and we played a few games the other day, i like it but until you get really used to the buttons its very frustrating..like hitting R1 instead of R2 to bring the QB cone to the reciever, then throwing a pick..etc.

football games have always sucked and always will, i just gotta accept that they'll never really be football, its impossible

fun tho, after you stop caring

Yea another thing about precision passing is that you can't change your receivers route because of it, but you can always switch to the 2005 controller. Hey Wu Gambino do you have internet play? or anyone else?

^^ I agree with that. Madden has taken it every year till this year with flyin colors. But yea, NCAA 2006 is the best football game this year. Yo Deini, have you played it? Cuz I remember last year you said you couldnt get the game over there.

And no RynMur04 I dont play online.

I heard the best superstar to create is a QB or a WR, sometimes a RB and a TE.

You talk to Esco still? Did you ever get the 100 bucks from him. Is he on the Corp, im never on. Tell him I said peace or sumthin.

And I think what Num2Son means is that those positions will get more popularity and movie roles ect. for the Superstar mode. Those positions are mainly the most popular in football, u cant deny that.

instead of the 100 bucks he be sending me ncaa 06. and yeah he on the corp. he back in san diego.

what i heard superstar mode is just half finished or something. what they need to do is that you can see where you get traded too if you demand a trade and what kind of contract you have what money you earn, buy your own goddamn mansion etc.

Superstar mode is very half-assed. Its a good concept, except it seems they had the idea, had a few thoughts, couldnt think of anything else to do which should be easy, and instead of scrapping it and saving it for 07 when they think up some more things, they slapped it on the game so it looked like they had this cool new innovated mode. Cuz it really is the only new thing to the game besides truck stick and P-Passing.

i think race to the heisman is worked out better then the superstar mode.

My dude's a ROLB, got drafted third round by the Bears, and is killing folks...already in my fourth week, he's gotten his season goal of three sacks, has two interceptions, and ran one back for a touchdown...my franchise is with the Browns...I fast-forwarded to the 2006 season and drafted Matt Leinart one and a DE two with my picks (I traded for the Saints number one pick before the deadline, and got lucky that the team was shit)...now I have one of the better teams in football...
