    Madden 2007

    Just bought it today. First Madden game i've bought since 2004, so im still adjusting to all the changes.

    Seems like the gameplay is much better. I bought NCAA Football 2006 last year and it is similar in a lot of respects. I can't really tell much of a difference in the running game features though. The new(to me) kicking features are hard to figure out.

    I think ill try out the franchise mode tonight.

    Thoughts?

    Re: Madden 2007

    Bought it earlier on lunch break, its gotten awesome reviews especially the new take control of the lead blocker feature so hopefully its pretty good.

    I also noticed AJ Hawk is rated an 85 not sure any rookie unless its of Lebron James type hype should ever be rated higher than an 80.....

    Not sure how Warrick Dunn is rated above Rudi Johnson and even in the top 10 running backs by overall rating along with Brian Westbrook.

    I haven't bought a Madden game for 3 years now but I'm going to get this one. I like the ESPN football game but it doesn't exist anymore.

    I picked up the 360 version on my way home for $47 at Circuit City! I love it so far. It's the best Madden I've ever played in so many ways, most notably gameplay. Not to mention the Bengals are actually good on this year's version.

    The initial rosters are always lousy. Wait for the first regular season release, it will be much improved.

    Just picked this up tonight on my way home (Wal*Mart). Gotta love that price match: Thanks to Circuit City's ad, I got the PC version for $27. Can't wait to try it out!

    It still bites that EA and the NFL conspired to monopolize the pro football video gaming industry. Only could have imagined what if NFL 2K7 had come out this week. Guess I'll have to update the rosters on 2K5 instead.

    I haven't bought an EA game since they did that. I'm sure that they miss my money, lol. I liked the 2k games much better. Hopefully EA doesn't take over the other sports too.

    Pretty much the only EA game I buy is NCAA football. Since I'm a bigger college football fan than NFL fan, I need to get my college football gaming fix somehow, even if it is with the EA Evil Empire.

    Re: Madden 2007

    ive owned every madden video game since its creation..

    i like how they've slowed down the game play a bit this season.. players arent running 100 yards in 5 seconds anymore lol

    but my limited time with it shows.

    also i simulated the season for cincybengals.com "madden preview" and the SAINTS lost 16-14 to the bengals in the superbowl

    i might be mistaken but i dont think bush is gonna have THAT kind of impact

    By the same token, did you buy MLB 06 The Show? Take Two did the same thing with baseball.

    While I don't necessarily care for what EA did with Madden, they paid the price by losing one of the up and coming baseball games on the market. MVP Baseball would likely have been on par with Madden had they stayed.

    Re: Madden 2007

    Does it have a decent "coach only" mode, or is it strictly for joystick jockeys?

    Haven't gotten either. I'll probably end up picking up a copy of one or the other sooner or later, but right now I hate that they cornered the markets like that. I can't blame them though, as it's smart business, but they aren't the games that I liked, lol.
