I use to be the biggest 2k fan on the planet, and was very upset that the football lisence were bought out by EA. I was really looking forward to the allprofootabll till the release date, but it was kinda a let down for me. It looks pretty good, but seems like a unpolished nfl2k5, i was quite let down, the realism of a football sim is just not there. I really wish 2k would have done better on this one, it actually got kinda boring after a while. Not to say that madden is any better, guess we are just still in limbo waithing for the perfect realistic football sim.
When I first rented the game, I expected it to kinda suck. But now I realize that this game is awesome. Everything from the running mechanics to the passing to the team customization is great. Madden fans, if you dont believe me, just play it and you will see. My only problem with it is that the difficulty is pretty hard and it will take about a day for you to be able to start winning. Now maybe thats just me but other than that this game is great.
