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.
Summary: Another year, another Madden game on the DS. This time around though, Madden NFL 08 ends up being the best installment of the long running series to hit the DS yet, with EA making some vast improvements over previous incarnations of the series. The first thing you'll notice is that the 3-D player models on the bottom screen of the DS are much improved this time around.
