06 sucked major wang. 07 on the other hand is actually a pretty decent game. For one the the player movements have improved a lot since 06 plus running the ball is a lot more fun. The lead blocking feature definitely makes this game more fun (especially when you pancake your freind's linebacker on a blitz play
) Honestly, there are some features that have been left out but overall its still a fun game to play with friends or if you want takeover the franchise of your favorite team and lead them to the super bowl.
Also the situations in which people describe about big plays being automatic is only true to a certain extent. When I played the redskins on all-pro, I could put joe horn or dante stallworth in the slot almost anytime and go the for the big one. But once I stepped up the game to all-madden and played good defensive teams like carolina and pittsburgh the big plays started to cease. Sure I could still get it from time to time but only if those were the only type of plays I ran the entire game. Not to mention once the fatigue glitch is fixed, it won't be that easy to continuously get seperation from dbs downfield. Because in real life quarterbacks don't just chunk the ball down field 40yds every play because their receivers would be sucking oxygen most of the game. Anybody remember why randy moss publicly admitted he would take off plays during the game. Thats right, he would get tired from running for the deep ball all game.
