Madden ’07: Testing Out the Trojan Rookies

Screencap from IGN

Madden NFL ’07 hit stores yesterday, and with it we get our first look at how the Trojan Class of 2006 shapes up under the pixelated spotlight of the Madden stage.

Based on initial testing, Leinart and LenDale are alright (Thunder will be better once we get the codes to unlock his new grill and spitting & fighting abilities). But Reggie’s rookie year Madden doppelganger is already well on his way to Bo Jackson Tecmo Bowl levels of greatness. TrojanWire’s own Maddenologist has him just a notch below LaDanian Tomlinson overall and says he “might be even better at breaking tackles and juking.” As anyone who played recent versions of NCAA Football knows, the score-tweaking geeks over at EA Sports are definitely Reggie fans. But they’ve definitely hooked him up, making him the best rookie we’ve ever played with. (Now let’s just hope they keep him off the cover).

If you’ve played Madden ’07 and tried out any of the Trojan rookies (Reggie, Leinart, LenDale, Dominique Byrd, Darnell Bing), send us your full report — in the absence of any real football, this is just about all we’ve got.
