Couldn't play on XBox 360

Even though I updated my console, I still couldn't play this game. It kept telling me there may be an update, but there wasn't one.
Don't know if it was just this game or my console or what.

Let me preface this with the disclaimer that I know little to nothing about football. That's right, I'm the guy, the guy who knows nothing about football. That was one of the reasons I wanted to play a football title like Madden 07 to see if I could brush up on my mad ballin' skillz. So my review is very much about the accessibility of Madden, which is a mixed bag. On the one hand, I know more about football now from playing the game than I did before. However, I still don't really understand half of what I did in the game. But I have to judge Madden on it's merits and it has many. First, there's just an overwhelming amount of content. If you've ever seen a football game, you know how long each one runs. Imagine playing every game in a season all the way to the Super Bowl. Now imagine playing that season in franchise mode, trading and training your players, setting ticket prices and upgrading your stadium along the way. Now imagine using the new feature to build your own hall of famer, taking your guy from the draft all the way to the top in every game along the way. It's a lot of stuff and you could easily spend your natural life playing this, even if you didn't jump online to play with everyone else who's spending their natural lives playing the same game. And, hey, if you don't want to play every practice, training exercise and game, you can simulate it, although that leaves your success up to the game and you tend to lose as much as you win in regular games. In the franchise mode you can utilize something called "Total Simulation Control" where you call every play and the game does the math, but if your like me, you'll start making random plays hoping something works and if you don't know what your doing, you'll still win only half the time. This is a great game for fans and people who know the tactics of the sport well. However, it's not for the inexperienced.
