The gang at EA Tiburon is aiming to bring gamers the most accurate football simulation ever made, and chief among their improvements to gameplay in Madden NFL 10 is the game’s all-new Pro-Tak animation system. It looks to be a truly game-changing innovation, and if you want to hear a few of the game’s development bigwigs -- including Lead Designer Ian Cummings and Senior Producer Phil Frazier -- talk about it, then hit the jump for the first Madden 10 “Developer Series” video.
To go along with the video, we’ve also got five new screenshots of the game, two of which show off the new nine-man gang tackling (no, kids, that’s not a group hug you see up there). Another one features an on-field referee, a first for this console generation, and then there’s one illustrating the stripped-down playcalling screen in this year’s game. The fifth one features Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger, just like the first image we ever saw of Madden 10.

Back it or spread the word, every bit of help counts.KeithTheGeek Sometimes I miss how hilariously janky Brawl was, and I still have a lot of fun playing it. Not sure if I could ever take it seriously as a competitive game, but I want to enter at least one Brawl tournament in the future. You know, if I can find one.KnickKnackMyWack I love how on a slow news day I can always turn to Qposts for something else to read and think about. Keep up the mojo fellas!Rad Party God I finally caved in to those sweet deals, got Shantae and The Pirate's Curse, Downwell and Super House of Dead Ninjas :)CoilWhine I hope that Prototype runs better on my dad's old laptop than it does on my AMD gaming rig. Some badly coded games run like ass on AMD cards. LinkSlayer64 Please spare me from issues in the process of publishing my blog! Especially since I modified CSS to unnecessarily pseudo-crop an image, and make it so some images float next to text, and make it look decent on mobile. I'm a frickin' nerd, love it.Nathan D The night brims with defiled scum, and is permeated by their rotten stench.

Looks great on there, and Sam's voice actor is Chloe's voice actor in Uncharted 2/3. Hell yeah!Archelon Community Question: With all the controversy surrounding review scores, what do you personally consider a "bad" score versus a "good" score? Is there a game in particular that was panned by critics that you nevertheless enjoyed? Or vice versa?
