    How come? It's the best Madden since probably 2005.
    Exactly. That was the last year they actually had to try to make a good game, because of competition. Then they bought out the exclusive rights to the NFL... and Madden 06 was one of the worst games I've ever played in my life.

    It's gotten better since then, but the games still are below Madden 2005/NFL 2K5 quality. (Admittedly I haven't tried this year's demo yet.) EA Sports doesn't get any more money from me until they can prove they can make a better game than some competition.

    Like I said, play the demo. Read reviews too, if you trust those. It's getting a lot of 8.5/9 scores. As a midnight release Madden fan, playing since I was like 7 years old, and having participated in and won tournaments, I can tell you that this certainly seems like the best Madden in a long time.

    Can't wait, will be throwing on my Urlacher jersey and going to a midnight release. BEAR DOWN!!!

    Also, Madden having a kinect achievement finally got me to cave on getting one. Is that sad?

    Yes, pass is typically what they do. Thanks for the clarification.

    Kinect achievement? Well you just saved me some time of picking this up. Thank you! Still might pick it up on a deal though.

    Is it the same developer as last year or did Tiburon hand-off to someone else.

    I've played it all weekend with the season ticket and this is the best Madden game ever. Yeah there's a few issues with the new engine but they end up being funny ones. For example, when I got hit and was getting up, I tripped over the guy and fell down and did a ragdoll splits like when you bail out in Trials LOL.

    One of the best things I've seen so far was when I threw to my TE I went to jump over the SS coming at me and he dove at the perfect time, I kicked him in his face and he fell flat on his ass. It was hilarious, I watched it ten times haha.

    Downside of the game is that there is no fantasy draft. So if you like to do drafts with your friends, it's not in this years edition unfortunately. But it's fun to pick crappy teams and try to build them up. Go Rams!

    I do not know much about this Madden fellow but I was looking forward to getting Damage Inc. and the PACIFIC AV8R flight stick to play it. Now that is a nice Collector's Edition... I wonder if I am the only person to Pre-order this game?
