It is here. For those of us who don't despise the franchise, today has been an awesome day.

I just played my first game online, and while very rusty, I won. Peyton Manning is awesome. Champ had 2 picks. It's all good in Denver.

I love the new menu screens, etc. The new kicking engine is cool. The graphics are fine, all in HD, yadda yadda yadda. I'm enjoying it one game in.

Can't comment on franchise, that's not my deal. I play exclusively online. I also didn't mess around with my online roster, just jumped on and played. I'm sure there are roster tweaks that can be done.

I'll post my X-Box 360 gamertag: TheBirdmanFlies

It's tough because when we play from the board, everybody wants to be the Broncos. But I'd be willing to try another team, or whatever.

Who got it? Thoughts?

As much **** I talked about it leading up to the release, I still got it. Someone in a different Madden thread gave good reviews. Having said that, I have played one game and the guy quit. I had 2 different passes hit Porter right in the hands only for it to fall to the ground. Other than that, seems much better than in years past. After the play, watching players run into each other is pretty hilarious to watch.

Don't try and play defense.

Just hope the computer decides to get you more turnovers than the other guy.

It's all strategy.

In that Nickle package where Von is coming off the edge is pretty nasty...Von is a beast rushing the passer.

Yeah I blitzed Von some with decent success. Need to practice with formations, etc.

Well, Broncos wideouts drop everything so at least its realistic. Sometimes I wish I wasn't stuck out in BFE where internet options suck. If I didnt have hughesnet I'd love to do the connected careers thing.

If you play online we lose purely because we will fumble at least 3 times a game, and have at least 15 drops. It's ****ing dumb.

Oh and btw you can sub in other positions easy in random formations. I keep subbing in RB's at WR and **** to confuse the guy I'm playing lol. come out in a 5 wide set where I'm really only looking at 2 different WR routes but have 2 RB's and 2 TE's...

80% of the plays I run come out of the same formation. The formation has to have a good Off Tackle play, a Counter play, a fast Play Action play, and a man to man killer.

All I do is go no huddle and audible all game.

on offense all you have to do is spread the safetys or LBs and hit a streak to either TE...julius thomas is a beast on this game and catches everything...Tamme as well...i put thomas as 2 and run PA all day...mcgahee is a beast as well dont even need to pass but when i do i hit the outside angle right after they break contact and seems to work for a TD everytime.

DB's in this game have better hands than WR's. Very unrealistic.

Everyone try out the 46 Defensive playbook and run the bear but change it to the Speed package and you will have Von out there and safteys & CB's ... stops the run and you have enough DB's to stop the pass..lethal!

I am rabbmast3rflash on Xbox, feel free to add me. I mainly play shooters, but would be up for a friendly match. I am awful at this game, I am not sandbagging here.

If you are also terrible, I might just be your huckleberry.

how do you audible the defense and have them all standing and roaming? I was playing a guy last night who was OWNING me and he had this crazy defense that would set up normal, then he would start audibling and before i knew it, almost everyone was at the line standing, press coverage.

Upon hiking it, it seemed like it all turned into man coverage or a soft zone, but then still had plenty of pressure.

Definitely one of the best players I have gone up against... peyton's neck was tested over and over.

Just got it through Gamefly, and all I can say is that it's terrible. No franchise mode. A coaching career mode without an auto passing option (you have to control passing and kicking even if you, you know, want to just be a coach and call plays). No fantasy draft. No player editing. The new physics tackling is wonky. Pass defense is a joke. The list goes on and on.

People really need to stop supporting this garbage franchise.
