Just like everyone else I was waiting forever for this year's NFL Madden series. As they promoted the game all over Television dedicating last tuesday as "Maddenoliday" Well after playing it for the first time on the PS2 Console I have to say that I am not impressed what so ever. Many that know me know that I like a good defensive football game and this game is far from it. I have played about 4 games with friends now and every game has been over 70 combined points and over 600+ yards of combined offense. The game just isn't fun when you cannot stop your opponent even when you pick a run defense and they run up the middle, bounce off 3 or 4 tackles and still get a 4 yard gain. Ridiculous. So anyone that was thinking about buying this game, take my advice and stick to Madden 2005 or 2004. (I never played 2006) The game is also way faster. The gameplay is just sped up and there are just so many additions you can make until a game becomes so damn complicated that you just don't care anymore. The same goes for Tiger Woods 2006. (Woods 2004 was the best by far, thanks for borrowing it and never returning it Funk) Anyways now I'm going off on tangents so I'm done.
On a side note: Everyone go out and buy BT's This Binary Universe which comes out tomorrow. I'm not listening to it yet but I will be within 24 hours, I haven't heard a BT album I haven't liked yet......
