It is tougher, haven't played with the sliders yet. I got a little lucky on my first game on All-pro as I was down 10-7, 20 secs, no timeouts, and hit Thrash across the middle and he outran everyone for a game winning 61-yd TD. Defintiely have to play a lot of good Def and play a little more conservative or the cpu will kill you. Anything thrown Taylor's way, get those arms up and good things happen.

Gotta love the Gibbs playbook. I have to be careful not to outrun the blockers on the counter as Portis is so quick. Once Portis gets behind them and they block good, you can start to que up "Hail to the Redskins!"

All-Pro is dope. its realistic in that its TOUGH to score, no videogame 50-40 point games. just being Portis doesnt give you 200 yds. you have to match up the blocks with motion, follow your blocks and really time the moves after you break from the line. in the air you really get the feeling of carefully lobbing balls over defenders or leading to open recievers in stride with maximum passing. good stuff. have to work at what you get.

you can choose by package (personnel), so they have all the formations available with any personnel you want. AND you can sub in and swap key players in the formation AT the play call screen!

i use the many variations of Ace formation with the two TEs, two WRs to spread out the DBs and Portis. then i motion the TEs to wherever i need them depending on what the defense shows. there are many formations and variations of Bunches and Flips (with the TE back a bit), so you can show tons of different looks, but still Counter-Trey all day

I was seriously considering buying it, but now I'll just save my twenty bucks and pick up a 12 pack. Madden is going to great. I already ordered mine. I should have it by 9/13. Can't wait.

I hear that. My girl bitches about me playing all the time. She thinks I'm too old for it. Maybe I can get her to go outta town that week too!

im getting Madden too but, you guys see the video grabs of Madden on IGN?

http://media.ps2.ign.com/media/620/620934/vids_1.html

it looks like...Madden. the players and lighting got a big upgrade, but man they move like toys compared to ESPN. totally not fluid. if you have access check the widescreen videos of the Skins vs. the Cards and see Portis do the spin move and break tackles. super videogamey.

I completely DISAGREE, but whatever. I am not a video game superstar, so I just play pro-level. After a few quick games, started a franchise, went 2-2 in the pre-season, so far 2-1 in regular season. Using the Giants, lost to Philly 31-13 (it wasn't even this close, one TD was a 78 yard interception return, and the other was with 30 seconds left, missed the 2.) Beat the skins at home 38-21 and Cleveland 14-7.

What I do find amusing are the EA vs. ESPN battles you see on some of the video game forums, they are hysterical.
