OK, I got this for Christmas, and was very happy with it. After going to best Buy and getting additional memory (256MB of RAM needed for Windows XP), I played my first exhibition game: Houston, vs. the Jaguars. I like the playcalling interface that lets you call plays while watching instant replays. Everything else about the game was pretty much the same quality or better as Madden '02 (I skipped '03). I haven't tried to create a play or playbook yet, but those features are on there. The only thing I don't like is that the game play seems to go faster than real life. Madden '02 did not have this problem. Any other Madden gamers out there know how to fix this problem?
