All I can say is from lookin at these, franchise mode is goin to be much more interesting this year.

Thankfully, that's a seperate mode from the franchise called Superstar mode. You basically create a player, and take him through his entire career.

If you have NCAA, you can take it even further, because NCAA has a Race to the Heisman mode this year, where you create a high school player, and run through drills to attract schools, getting a scholarship and over the years try to win the Heisman. You can then export him, and use him in the Superstar mode.

I'm not really interested in those modes, but I eventually might try to recreate someone's career, like Derrick Thomas.

Hopefully ESPN will up their game this year too. I don't know if you checked it out last year but it's ready to give Madden a run for it's money.

Not anymore. You apparently missed the news a few months ago. EA bought out the "official" rights to the NFL for video game usage, so now they're the only company that can use the official team names, players, logos, etc. in their games...

Did you play the football game last year? It was a major improvement. Some things on it were better than Madden IMO. The running game seemed a lot more realistic.

BS

I played the hell out of last year's football game. I must say I enjoyed it more than Madden, however since I got my xbox live going all I've been doing is playing online.

I think i'm 1-10, hell yeah....

i got both those games and Madden has been and always will be the king of football games
ESPN was way too easy to beat. the AI was not good, i beat the game handily on the hardest difficulty.
Maddens online features are way beter as well.

agreed,
I've always kind of thought madden was the better simulator and ESPN was just pretty to look at. The engine for madden is wayyy better. However, the best football game hands down is NCAA 2005!!

Actually, the NBA was smart, and instead of accepting EA's offer, they gave rights to 5 different companies (mainly EA and Take Two, maker of the ESPN series of games). They will continue to make yearly simulation games, but the rights to the arcade style games like NBA Street and NBA Ballers will alternate year to year. So NBA Street will have the exclusive license one year, while another game will have it another.

The MLB is a little bit different. Take Two bought exclusive 3rd party rights, which means that they will be the only company outside of Microsoft (used to make Inside Pitch), Sony (MLB Baseball) or Nintendo, completely shutting EA out. But the interesting thing is that EA could technically create a game and sell it to a console maker like Microsoft, still having the same gameplay, but changing the name. Regardless the MLB license lasts until 2012.

EA also has exclusive rights to college football and baseball, arena football, NASCAR, soccer, and its rumored they bought NHL exclusivity. As far as I know, college basketball has yet to be touched.
