Good review but the bugs needed address more in this review IMO because they too lower the longevity of playing the game. I can't play a game where I'll get 1-2 INTs for touchdowns each week in a franchise.
My god, do I wish I hadn't just discovered this site yesterday...woulda been nice to have read this review...oh, what now, 2 months ago when Madden released, and I bought it, because every other reviewer on planet Earth went gaga? The gameplay still has some flaws (why can't any running back hold on to the frickin' ball?!?!), but IS improved, but the game is just so utterly boring! Horrible mazes of submenus, a franchise mode stripped of features, and everything is just so utterly...dull. I mean, come on, getting rid of Tony Bruno...improvement. Replacing him with absolute nothingness...cheap and lame!
