So the Demo came out this week. I played a game using 'Game Flow' and actually really liked it, I played as the Jets, so I have a feeling the OC will be different with Manning, but being told the play through the headset is really awesome.

I tried to run the Wildcat once with it, and it seems that like in the NFL, the game has found out how to effectively stop it from gaining big yards...

The only irritating thing with it so far is in kicking, I managed to get squib kicks and onside kicks pretty much nailed in 10, but with this new control system it seems a bit lacking in terms of determining accuracy.

Locomotion seems cool too, with Greene picking up a nice 15yard TD and a 30 yard run because of leaning away from defenders :D

All in all, I'm looking forward to it's full release and hopefully if other Macrumors people play it, setting up a league.

The only thing I'm not looking forward to is the fact that the USA gets it on my birthday, but I have to wait 3 extra days :(

I have the PS3 version. great game... not too different from previous versions, unfortunately... I'd love to see some better graphics and smoother framerates, but I do have a question. I have the PS3 chatpad.... but how do I talk trash mid-game?? Everyone did this to me last year, and I bought the chatpad in the offseason so I could use it this year. But i don't know how to send messages in-game!
