Summary: I bought this (used) game for my 7 year old for Christmas. He caught on very quickly and loves to have a friend log on and they can play each other. So happy I went with the used game- Works perfectly for much less cost.
Summary: I was looking for a challenging football game to play on the go. It was between Tecmo Kickoff, Madden 08, & 09. I heard that tecmo was fun, just not challenging enough. I saw that this game got a average of 4.5 stars out of 8 reviews, so I gave it a shot. It was much cheaper than '09 also. The passing and running games are done pretty well to my surprise. I like the defensive playmaker choices to help you give the offense a tough time. The cpu AI is pretty good.
Too many bugs to make it a classic, but still fun overall

Summary: First, I want to applaud EA for making real strides every year in their new versions of Madden for the DS. This game is a huge improvement over prior years (just the use of the old kicking system alone made it so that I wanted to finish a season) and it really is a fairly good football simulation. Pros: - This game had some very realistic player capabilities.
Summary: Daughter loves it. She got rid of her other two (05 & 06). Said the graphics were faster and more colorful. Action & players were up to date. Price was'nt bad either. All in all, GREAT PRODUCT!
Summary: My boys beg for more video game time with this game. My 11 year old son received this game for Christmas. It has been so much fun for my 2 boys that we bought another one for my 9 year old son's upcoming birthday so they won't have to share!
Summary: I bought this for my son's 6 yr old birthday. He loves it. No, he isn't too young for it!! He knows ho to play pretty well, of course he doesn't ever play it on 'career' mode just quick games. I just bought any year I knew it didn;t matter as long as it had his fav team The Falcons on it!! It's a great game.
