X-Box Football - Madden or Fever?

Hey folks!

I just got my X-Box last night, but I have yet to open either Madden or NFL Fever. I'm going to return one of them today... and I am going to pick up NFL2k2 in January when it is released.

So..which one should I keep?

NFL Fever 2002 - I have been told it has the best graphics so far of any football game. Some people are negative about the gameplay, however, and think it is too "arcadey".

Madden 2002 - I am used to this game from the PS2, and the X-Box game has slightly better graphics... I like the depth of the franchise mode, and the fact that the Texans are added after year 1 of franchise, along with league restructuring...

Also, does anyone know if Fever or NFL2k2 have the Texans/league restructuring?

Any input? (Especially from someone who has given both games a fair shot...)

Fever may be initially more fun (with sharper graphics), Madden has better tenure. Plus with the options like franchise and game plays like Two Minute Drill you will get more play time out of Madden.

I have Fever and I really like it, but I voted for Madden. From the looks of it (fingers crossed) 2K2 may end up being better than both. I think Fever looks a lot better, but Madden just is more polished. Fever in a year could be a force... EA better be working hard to keep up.

For me the deciding factor was that Madden supports 16:9 aspect ratio, Fever does not.

I played Fever on a 16x9 TV and there was no letterboxing. It seemed to support 16x9 just fine.

Letterboxing has nothing to do with whether it supports 16:9...
