I bought CoD2 today and while I was there the EB employees (lol) were playin madden.. they got done w/ steelers vs packers in the snow. when there was a sack there seemed to be a lil slowdown. anyway, they finsihed and i played panthers vs chargers (i was playing w/ some random kid). at panthers... it was good.. hard as hell actually. the toss is amazingly slow haha.. bad news, play calling is the same way for multiplayer as it is for single player. um.. other than that good news. menus are pretty cool too. running is hard haha i'm not sure what difficulty i was playing on though. catching seems a little bit easy though. it's really, really hard to break tackles. um.. stephen davis is a beast.. ummm haha sorry, i'm just tryin to think about it. it's pretty much the same madden gameplay, so dont expect anything different. the graphics are WOW though.. it was on a HDTV btw. you can ask me questions if you want but i only did play one quarter.
