    The vision cone was soooo terrible. i turned off "fight for the fumble" in the first game. Gonna have to strongly disagree with the lead blocker, though. i loved that, and it was the most fun i've had playing madden co-op. springing your buddy for huge gains (and trucking defenders) was actually a great time. One thing not on this list that i would actually love to see come back was the ability to direct receivers and blockers as the qb during plays, not just pre-play. why they took that out is still beyond me.

    That's an interesting point, and one that demonstrates why people have such varying experiences with Madden (and many sports games for that matter). I've only recently played a lot of co-op in basketball and football video games - really, within the past 2 years - and it opens up the game in a lot of ways. It's such a different way to play than your typical single- or multiplayer versus modes.

    yeah, it's funny how strategizing on the fly with another person can really show the current limitations of ai. as i'm sure you know, basketball with another person on your team really makes the game. fast breaks, alley oops, double teams...true teamwork.
