Anybody play the superstar mode?
I first started playing an OLB, but then created a QB. This was too much like playing a regular game, so I created a WR, Wren McCabe.
My character came from good genes (Pro Bowl WR daddy) and was drafted by the Falcons in the 3rd round. He started as the #2 receiver and made about 500 something yards as I was getting used to controlling a receiver. His second year, he was made #1 receiver and caught nearly 900 yards, went to the pro bowl as a kick returner and won the superbowl.
His third year, I didn't want to stay in Atlanta (hate the falcons
) so I told my agent he wanted out of there. He got 5 offers and one of them (YAY!) was from the Steelers. Of course I jumped all over that. He was #2 behind Ward and caught around 1100 yards and 15 TDs. They went to the superbowl against the Falcons (ironic!). I had a good game with him, but we couldn't run the clock out and they went down the field and scored the go ahead TD with something like 25 seconds left. I was pissed because I really wanted to beat the falcons in the superbowl. But the game isn't over until double zeros are on the board. On the ensueing kickoff, I took my guy and ran the kick off to the house to win the SB!
He's now in his forth year, is the #1 receiver for the Steelers and he just over took Roy Williams as the receiving leader in the league with 1200 yards and 3 games in the season left.
Superstar mode has really made Madden fun for me again. I love playing the player like a real player. I set the controls for all other to cpu, so I can't control the RBs or the defense or anything. Only thing I can control is my player.
