NFL Blitz - EA SPORTS

I'm buying the XBLA version tomorrow.  Who else is looking forward to this?

I played NFL Blitz 2000 at my arcade for about 3 and a half years now and its one of my favorite games to play due to the ease of controls and bullshit you can do on 2 v 2.  I tried the Demo for this and I HATEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE ITTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA LOOOOOOOOOOOOTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT.  :/  I was really excited about an updated version of the game with the current roster of players that I'm familiar with.  I felt like the game took a step back overall.

Any more detail than that? The game likely will not be the same if it is released 12 years later by a different company...

From what I played, the animation seems extremely choppy and floaty, especially when you throw and catch the ball.  Running isn't as bad but it doesn't feel right.  Running the ball was one of my strengths because of my juking style and timing of my stiff arm.  I have a hard time stiff arming people, though if I played it more, I'd probably get used to that.  Graphically, I think its worse but thats all preference.  There are mixed reviews for this game online with many positives.  Don't let my negative opinion affect you on this.  I may give the demo another chance without comparing it to the older games to see if it'll grow on to me.
