    Played the demo, it's pretty good. Better in recent years. Plan to pick it up tomorrow.

    This thread discusses a player running a sim, totally different.

    Anyway, I plan on picking it up today on the way home from work. I've been playing the demo a bunch and think I've gotten a good feel for the game. Really looking forward to being able to play a team other than the Colts as well as use some other teams.

    i'm gonna wait 'til the "Revis Special Edition" comes out.


    it features Darrelle Revis as every player on every team, they're all rated 99.9 across the board, and everyone makes $100 billion dollars.


    the game crashes after the first snap, but it's soooooooooooooo worth it :yes:

    Theres some details they changed that I really like. I really liike the stadium music at appropriate times, the new commentator, the ball actually spinning when you throw it, the pre-game cut scenes. I'm not really big on the new d pad pre snap adjustments, but I read their working on a patch for the old adjustment system to be out within a few weeks

    I can proudly say I haven't bought this game in 3 years. I downloaded the demo, I wasn't really that impressed. I'd rather play FIFA or MW2.

    FIFA is how you move a franchise forward. Just a game where the developer knows where and how to get better. Madden is however, a tradition for most so no matter how mediocre it is people will buy it and act like it's great.

    Yep, the patch will be here when the regular season starts.

    I found it strange that despite some players being signed weeks ago by new teams, they are still on the free agent wire. Guys like Flozell Adams, Laveranues Coles and Keith Bulluck among others.

    Granted, I love Madden and buy it every year just for the new players, but I'm not that fanatical where every little change drives me nuts like some of the maniacs on the intergoogles.

    I don't disagree with this. The game has taken on a cult following and the media basks in it. On TV last week I saw some kind of pro-am flag football tournament sponsored by Madden, and the everyone in the crowd got an advanced copy of the new game. And they all clapped like trained seals.

    +1

    Madden '05 is the last time I bought that game. I got sick of it then and still to this day have never had the urge to play that game. If I'm playing a sports game, I'll go with MLB The Show, FIFA, or NHL.

    Pretty widely reported if you've read any reviews of the game.
