I think that the best thing I have heard about this year's version is the fact that the animations don't have to complete. All the animations can be broken at any time. so if you are spinning and then hit the juke button, it will transfer smoothly into the juke instead of finishing, taking a step and then juking. Also, if you are catching a ball in the air, you can get hit and it smoothly transfers into the tackle mid-air. That would also greatly enhance the gang tackling. I can't wait. :-L

You mean if we can get BACK fantasy drafts, in-depth editing, and accurate rosters as things that were in the game for half a decade already ;)

How about last year's game? Seeing that makes me very wary of this year's...

That sounds like a big improvement to me as well. It used to be pretty annoying when you would have four guys in front of the ball carrier only to have him go into the break tackle animation of one of them and the other 3 guys dive or run past him when he was "invincible" because he was in that animation.

Well, yeah, last year's was bad, but the stuff that annoyed me about lat year's I have already heard are going to be fixed, so I assume they actually will. ;-D

OK, this article just totally convinced me to buy Madden for the regular Xbox. And I had already made up my mind to get a next-gen console before buying ANY more games. I dunno, might still do that, but this article is SWEET!!

Madden Soundtrack released.

I've heard of 4 of those artists. Good thing the 360 has custom soundtracks. !+)

Madden soundtracks almost never have already popular music - rather the music gets popular after it's in Madden.
