Defensive Run/Pass Commit in Madden 13

Madden 13 will have a defensive commit system.  Many of you may remember something similiar from past NCAA Football games.  You can run commit to the right, left, up the middle, or commit to a pass.  This is great to combat the people who run the same play over and over again or the people that never call any run plays.

However, the bad news is that the defense still grossly overcommits.  If you run commit to the right, your entire defense will pretty much forget the play that was called and just sprint to the right allowing easy touchdowns if you guess wrong.  Even if you guess correctly, your opponent can still have their running back cutback and again you are out of luck.

While the idea of the feature is good, hopefully it can be improved via a patch or come Madden 14.  Let us know your thoughts on the run/pass commit system in Madden NFL 13 in the comments section.

  1. This is awesome. I think they had this in some past madden games a few years ago. I am happy it is back

  2. I think EA would be better off improving the play recognition and reaction time of defensive players and bringing in more gap control elements which would make stuff like this redundant. Real defenses don’t run commit right or left, so why put it in the game? They are adding it in order to cover flaws in defensive AI.
