I used a free rental I had coming to me and picked this up today. I haven't played it yet, though.

Same here on the rental part, but I haven't checked it out yet. Been busy all day. I'm finally employed! ;-D

Well, I popped the disc in and checked out a few things. Some of the depth charts and ratings are a little messed up - Jerome Bettis is starting over Duce Staley (and rated higher), Ben Roethlisberger is starting over Tommy Maddox, Koren Robinson is rated an 89 whereas D-Jax is rated an 87, Donte Stallworth is rated at 87...

The rosters seemed pretty up to date. I only had to make a few changes - most of which occurred over only the last week or two.

I'll check things out more and I'll give a more thorough list of my problems with the ratings...

Also, when I was done messing with the rosters, I got a "phone call" from Steve-O; he wanted to challenge me to a game of football. That was weird and unexpected (also unwanted - if they're going to have people making challenges, I'd rather get a phone call from Terrell Davis, Deion Sanders, Steve Young, Terrell Owens, ect. - I like Jackass and Wild Boyz, but I don't want to play football with Steve-O)...

A few others I've noticed:

-> Kitna starting over Palmer
-> Shannon Sharpe in the free agents
-> T.O. got a 100 rating???

I got the PS2 version and have already noticed quite a few framerate issues. Love the right analog stick though...very nice.

I picked up a copy last night. I didn't get a chance to play much, but it felt very strange, as I'm used to Madden. It does have great graphics and it was enjoyable, but I think it will take some getting used to. I'll check back when I get a chance to play it some more.

I hate the way the special moves work for running. Sometimes tapping the A (X for PS2) button will make you sprint and sometimes it will just keep filling the energy bar thing just a little and then going back down. I don't like that little energy meter thing, nor the fact that you can't hurdle in this version.

Oh, ok...you can tell I'm a Madden vet. Not good place for the move that arguably requires the most accurate timing of all of them, though, IMO.
