    Anyone picked this up yet?

    First impressions: The new running controls are ultra-sensitive to the XBox directional pad, making a simple change in direction impossible (turns it into some juke move instead).

    The already-terrible kicking meter has been made even worse.

    A solid defensive backfield with any team? Forget it. The AI just doesn't seem to be very, well, intelligent.

    ...then again, I could simply be the worst gamer in the country. Highly possible.

    I played it at Toys R Us today. It sucks, I hate it. Too hard.

    I've bought the annual version of this game for the past few years, but I'm not sold on this one. '06 wasn't much better than '05, and I really didn't care for the Heisman mode thing. So I might just stick with '06 and keep the $50.

    I went out and bought it. The kicking got some taking used to, but it's doable.

    I really like how you can cycle through the defensive players pre-snap now. Just hold in the circle button and cycle through which player you want with the directional pad.

    The expanded playbooks are nice. It was kinda frustrating running Texas Tech's offense and Air Force's an there not being too many differences.

    So far so good.

    Each year I alternate from getting Madden and NCAA. This year I'm supposed to get NCAA, but I think I'll test it out before I buy it.

    Embassy ... you get the XBox 360 version? Anybody have the PS2 version? I'm so tied up the next two weeks that it would be silly for me to buy this game now, but I'll probably check it out soon.

    Picking mine (ps2) up this evening.
     
  9. getting mine today, as soon as I get off. Im actually in favor of the game getting difficult. I usually lose interest when it is too easy.

    This is one of the most frustrating days of the year for me. Why oh why can't they release this game for PCs?

    For the first time in a few years, I've done no prep on the game and have no idea what to expect.

    I'll look at it now, maybe I'll get it. Not sure at this point...though the reviews here push me more towards non-committal status.

    I've got the PS2 version. First game I've bought where you can set it for an actual 16x9 widescreen and not just a stretched 4x3. Kinda nice, especially in the passing game, because you can see more of the field. I really don't like the first-person perspective on kick returns. Very disorienting.

    I stick with the classic control scheme, so it's hard for me to say anything about the new controls, but the kicking meter isn't that bad once you get used to it.
