So far it's a lot of fun. I always buy both, though I tried not to buy Madden last year (made it a month or so).
Tackling is both awesome and tougher. I'd gotten used to vacuum tackling for big hits, so I whiff A LOT at the moment. Having to completely relearn how to make tackles. But zone coverage is so much better, passing actually feels like an accomplishment whereas before I always knew I could march downfield with ease.
Blocking AI does seem smarter as well, I've had several runs where the OL was more important than the RB, which rarely happened before. Presentation is really good, and making your own playbook is downright awesome. It's also a lot harder to juke people out, that's been a challenge for me since I had the old stick moves down. Slant-and-flats is no longer automatic money play it once was.
Some flaws I've heard/experienced: Super-athletic LBs still exist, but that's existed for-freaking-ever. I guess some people have had issues getting their playbooks to work.
Sarlacc, on comparing .NET to Soccer: And why not? It's a bunch of people running around in circles, feigning pain, and never scoring.
