Summary: This is the first year I have purchased Madden since the PS1. I was very happy with the product. Graphics were astounding and tackling moves were improved. By far EA seemed to improve very many things from 2006. But, I just finished my offseason for the 2nd year and tried to load Franchise to start 3rd season and got a Corrupt File message. This was the second time I have gotten this message.
Summary: I have mailed this game back with the original receipt. Today is Feb. 15th and I have not had a reply to my return or e-mail. I mailed it back on Feb. 1 , 2007. Thanks for your help in this matter.
Summary: I don't even know where to start with this abortion of a football game. Every flaw that plagued Madden 03 is basically still present in this game. Hail Marys work 90% of the time. Stopping the run against anyone but the computer is almost impossible. If you have a mobile QB don't even bother playing the game you're going to rush for over 200 yards. There's a reason why I didn't buy 06 and I am reminded very quickly by 07.
Summary: The game freezes non stop. I cannot figure out how to get to a season if there is a way and the music blaring during the game sucks. I can play 2001 for hours but this game wears on my nerves in seconds. DO NOT BUY THIS GARBAGE. I wish Take Two would do a football game on the scale of NBA 2k7. UGH. This blows.
Summary: Well I used to play PC based games but got tired of needing to constantly upgrade to keep up with the latest titles. I thought by getting a PS2 my problems would be solved, I'd buy games made for the console and it would be smooth sailing, right? Not so with Madden NFL 07. This game is so buggy I can't even play it. Most of the time, the game freezes on the initial title screen.
Summary: I buy Madden every year simply because it's probably the best sports videogame franchise. But 07 is nothing special at all. The only improvements are the lead blocker controls and the Hall of Fame Superstar mode. But everything else is a carbon copy of 06. Please, save the 50 bucks and just update the 06 rosters...07 is definitely not worth it.
Summary: I like to play franchise mode with the fantasy draft. I completed my draft and moved on to training camp. After completing the first quarterback challenge, the game froze. I turned the system off, tried again several times - the result? Nothing but game freeze. Did a Google search and this seems to be a BIG problem for the Xbox 360 and PSP as well as the PS2 (which I own). I tried emailing EA, but they want you to create a user account or else you can't reach them - why?
Summary: Waiting in line to buy the new Madden every year is like waiting in line to buy a new calendar. Sure, there are enough differences to technically call it "new". There might be newer or prettier pictures but it's still just a calendar, just like the year before - same stuff only with slight changes. I know all the Maddenphiles and football fans say that there really are additions and changes that justify another $50/$60 drop.
Summary: I owned the past Maddens and the game has continually declined over the past several years.If you owned last year's or the year before that, then this game has not changed a whole lot.I was blown away by this game in 2001.I have never seen a game like that before.I, like many others played it for hours and hours.I even played in a 20 year franchise mode along with draft,preseason and every game in the season.I loved the game.Since then though, EA has taken my money in...
