I have 06 and haven't played it for months, but I still buy 07 just because its "Madden" and I have every other copy from the past 8 years or so. First, I start a new Superstar mode as a WR. Of course, I spend 10 minutes pressing circle until my dad becomes a Hall of Fame WR and my mom a professional softball player. This results in my overall rating of an 89 and me being the #1 WR on the 49ers. I play one game and don't get a single pass thrown to me even while wide open waving a single hand in the air like a dork. I deleted that file, and I probably won't play this again for a while. Sure, I'll play the occasional game with a friend, but most likely at their house with their copy of the game. So basically, I wasted $50 on a game that I'm sure is good but that I probably just won't play. And for whatever reason, I decided to let you guys know all about it.

So, current gen. isn't all that exciting, eh? I wasn't a huge fan of 06, nor have I been of Madden for quite a bit now. I feel like I've been playing the same engine since 1995 sometimes...
One game I'm getting amped up for is NBA Live 07... even current gen. there, while not seeing huge graphical upgrades, has gotten a huge gameplay bump, from videos I've seen.
To be honest, the gameplay on Madden for 360 is a few years behind the current gen ones. There are a few plays that work every time, which is kind of boring because I can just run that play if I want to score. The defense is pretty lame too. The improvements made in Madden '05 are non existant - except the hit stick. There's no way to stop a Mike Vick or McNabb because they still haven't added defensive playmakers to the 360 version. Obviously the graphics are amazing though, and it's still a good game...just not as good as they could be.
I played sort of a mini-tournament with a couple of buddies yesterday, and I really like this game. The Redskins are a real nice team in the game. I still really really don't like playiing the computer though. Its actually kind of ridiculus how bad the computer is. Fun game online or with friends though.

What level do you play on vs. the computer? A lot of my games go down to the wire on All-Madden. Of course, that wouldn't be the case if they didn't score on cheap ()&&%^ plays every time they have the ball.
Ive been playing on all-pro but switched to all-madden. all-pro is way too easy and on all-madden, good recievers drop passes when they're wide open and the gameplay is just a little ridiculus. Games are usually close if I run a lot and use some plays that seem to always work, but its still just not nearly as much fun and way more frustrating than just playing against a live opponent. Also, as I think someone mentioned here earlier, you can always find plays that will beat the computer almost every time and its hard not to go to these plays when you need that first down.
