New Madden Superstar Mode

Madden Superstars You’ve taken your team to the Super Bowl as an owner, as a general manager, but have you ever seen yourself in the game throwing the perfect spiral to win it all? That’s the theory behind the new Superstar mode in Madden as you create a player from the parents up. That’s right, you select the best set of parents for your athlete. Do you want a father who is an ex-linebacker or a gardener? How about a mom who is a brain surgeon and likes to take karate? Everything from your parents IQ to their occupations and hobbies are listed, and depending on the parents you pick, you’ll find which positions your player is best suited for. Your DNA will also affect your stats, including physical skills, immediate exposure, and awareness. From there, tat him up, add some muscles (even adjust the amount of thigh fat), shave his head, give him a blonde afro, the choice is yours. From there, it’s almost time for the draft where you wait it out until your name is called by a team in need of your position. Unfortunately, you won’t be called in the first round, so forget about living in a mansion right away. You’ll start out in an apartment, and the better you get at the game, the more famous your superstar becomes, the bigger the crib you can obtain. Before the draft, however, you can listen to words of advice from mentors like Terrell Davis who will give you advice about everything from your apartment to the draft to agents to off the field activities like acquiring movie roles. You sit down for radio interviews where you talk about your favorite food and favorite video game (Madden, of course). You can sign with an agent who best fits your needs, from good negotiation skills to influence, and if you find the right agent, not only will the training institute be open for you to workout in, but you’ll have the ability to make more money through endorsements, and if you’re good enough, you’ll even be able to get your mug on the cover of Madden…let’s just hope the curse isn’t part of the deal. When first starting out, though, none of the top agents will want to represent you. You’ll need to work your way up, then do what every NFL superstar has learned to do, fire your agent and move on to the next best guy. But before the draft, you’ll need to sit down and take a two minute IQ test, just like the Wonderlic test given to all rookies at the combine. It’s part intelligence, part psychological as the teams are trying to gauge your awareness and personality type. Do you enjoy practical jokes? How wide are the goalposts? Who was the best player on your team in college? Have you ever lied to give yourself an advantage? Do bright colors concern you? That’s right, 20 of the most random questions you can think of. Answer them all, get your score, then move on to the draft. Get picked and move on to training camp where you can practice with your new team, even earning points for every yard gained. Or, if you’d rather head to your agent’s office and call a press conference, guaranteeing a trip to the playoffs, or maybe even complain about your new coaching staff (they wouldn’t recognize talent if it hit them in the head), it’s up to you. This is also the place where you can announce your retirement due to injury, or if you want to start over with a new superstar. You can even import players from NCAA or NFL Street as your superstar, that way you don’t need to start over from scratch. And if your created character is already a stud in either one of those games, it gives you an advantage in Madden as he will definitely have better attribute ratings starting out than a player you create from scratch. As you progress through your career, you’ll need to memorize movie lines, talk to the media about how great you are, and of course, make sure your fade is looking clean for your next TV appearance. This is what NFL Superstar mode is all about. Crafting your character to be the next Michael Vick or Donovan McNabb. Taking matters into your own hands and winning the Super Bowl for your team without having to worry about the price of popcorn or peanuts.
