    I had high hopes early on, thinking this would be the fully customizable game I've dreamed about for years. Now it just sounds like a crappy legends game with no create-a-anything and pretty graphics & animation.

    Game is rumored to release the day before EA's NCAA is released.

    There should be media of the game soon.

    Hearing nothing but great things about it, but we will know for sure soon enough.

    Latest reports are that EVERYTHING will be customizable. I guess we will know for sure in 1.5 months.

    Wow, it actually looks like Jerry Rice. Most all the Madden players look exactly the same it seems. I've played franchise and seen 30 Keith Bullucks on other teams. Same exact face and all.
    I hope 2k8 at least nails the simple things that Madden doesn't. Like, If I score a touchdown while being the AWAY team - the HOME crowd shouldn't be cheering. Or even better, when the ball is on the 20, maybe the crowd should be looking at the 20 instead of the 50. Small things like that irk me.

    I liked how the stadiums reflect the custom teams bhy way of architecture. I just hope they have more logos than before. Some of the old logos were all but useless.

    They are saying that you will be able to create your own logo.

    I believe Yancey will be one of the lower ranked legends. From what I am hearing, you will only be allowed so many legends when you draft your team.

    The legends are ranked by Gold, Silver and Bronze and they limit how many players of each ranking you can have on your team.
