the automation process, the players are too robotic. It's the next gen, how about making the players less predictable. Add more animations / movement and take them off the train tracks.

I've been a dedicated Madden fan for a few years. Now I may not know as much as a hardcore fan who played on the NES, but I will say that the last couple of Maddens have gotten progressively worse. In my opinion '03 - '05 were the best iterations of Madden, offering a deep franchise mode, great graphics and gameplay. Now '08 is here, and boy oh boy, where did EA go wrong. They had it and just let it all go. This is by far the worst version of Madden I have ever played. It's only getting worse, the preview looked like it had PS2 player models with some weird white gloss outlining them, robotic animations, and REWIND, WTF is that! If I screw up then that's too damn bad, I screwed up! Geez, I used to love Madden. They're just adding useless features that do nothing to improve the core gameplay. :(
