Madden 10. This is the game that separates the men from the boys. This is the arena by which all are judged. Okay, well, maybe that last part was a bit strong, but if you want to come out on top of this one, you’d sure as hell better do your homework.
The first move to master would be the Spin Move. Imagine the scenario: no defenders around you, and two blockers in front of you. Then, you catch the ball and the defenders start running in your direction. How do you pull this one off? Set up the first defender by sprinting toward the sidelines with the right trigger, moving the left stick up at about a 45 degree angle. Then, quickly hit the B button, and at the last second, move the left stick to the right. The Spin Move – it’s a thing of beauty.
If you want to win, you also need to use Defensive Assignments. One of Madden’s smartest features, Defensive Assignments lets you assign your best defender to their best offensive player (as opposed to a default “automatic” setting). Let’s say your opponent knows how to use his star player, and he’s just destroying you every time. Your best bet is to go into the Coaching Options menu, choose Defensive Assignments, and line up your best man to take down his best man. Because a good opponent (and trust me, these Madden fanatics are in a league all their own) knows how to make the most of his team… this way, you can help even the score.
Not much more needs to be said. Master these Madden 10 tools, and trust us, you will be far more than master of your domain.
