I couldn't find a thread for this, so I thought I'd create one, what with the game's release today. I've been a big fan of the 2K series since day one, and the more I see of this game, the more it looks absolutely amazing.

looks pretty good, but not good enough to buy over madden. I'd probably rent it however.

Maddens got real players and such, gotta go with it. BTW Smokey Joe, I look forward to dominating you in Madden.

Yeah these guys are completely fake...

If I had any sort of cash at the moment or a next-gen system, then I'd get this immediately, because 2K's gameplay blows Madden's away.

Anyone else think they released this at the wrong time? That they should have been waiting and released it in like January or February when the other two sports wind down and their video games are getting old?

I agree, why would they want to compete with NCAA followed by Madden. Its gotten terrible reviews, but i will still give it a try bc 2k5 was classic

...Jerry Rice, John Elway, Barry Sanders...No they aren't real players.

QFT. I almost got this over NCAA but meh...The NCAA football games have always been my favorite and gave me hours and hours of play. I might get this later on though.

Wouldn't really matter either way. They'd still get killed in the sales due to nearly everyone being a EA/Madden diehard fan.

Madden shouldn't have bought the NFL Players rights. It gives them no competition to put out a good game.

The years Madden was truly innovative and fresh, 2k sports was right behind them pushing them to preform.

That was the idea, to not have competition. Obviously, people still bought it even though they complained about it all the time.

I think it's a novel idea, having old players in the game. Granted, I don't think it is going to do well but I think that next year, when 2k can do an NFL game, they are going to be able to build on this game's gameplay and graphics to make a game that will really push Madden.

I just think it's BS that EA Sports has a monopoly on certain sports games.. they can't be challenged when it comes to Madden, NHL, or College sports.

But they also can't make the best baseball series anymore because another company did the same thing.

mvp 2005 was simply a perfect baseball game engine.

Wait, are all of the players real? Or only some (Elway, Sanders, etc.)?

True freaking that, 2K football games wiped the floor with madden back in the day and they had the wonderful price tag of $20. I for one am excited for this game, love the idea of playing with legends.

In my opinion 2K's best product in comparison to others is NHL. 2K hockey games murder EA, as for football though, I roll with EA.

I'm not too convinced.. I wish they had a season or franchise mode. It would make the game that much better.

I never liked 2K's hockey...EA's is much better, imo. NBA 2K7 is probably the best they got.

Would it? Once people are playing Madden for 5 or 6 months, you don't think they may want to try something new? It would be more convenient.

Anyways, why can't 2K make an NCAA football game? If they can make a college basketball game, why couldn't the do football too?
