Summary: I bought the PS3 and Madden a few weeks ago. I figured I would get Madden since it was a long running series, and was sure to be a solid game. There are some things about it which are fun and some which are frustrating. (I haven't played a Madden game in years, so most of the features listed below are new to me.) Things I like - - Superstar mode - Graphics - (except for the barren sidelines and the scoreboards which are the same blocky, ugly graphics for every stadium.
Summary: I've been playing Madden on a PS2 for about as long as the PS2 has existed and this is the only update to disappoint me. Here are my thoughts. Gameplay This is the good news. The graphics are great - probably not quite as good as you thought, but still great. There is some pretty stupid eye candy.
Summary: This is obviously next-gen Madden- The 360 version is worse, I don't see how it is rated higher here. But seriously, has Madden football ever been that great of a game? First off, the graphics are great for a launch title. Compare this game to the PS2's first Madden game, then imagine how good it will be for PS3 in 5-6 years. :) Physics have also had an overhaul, the biggest feature is, of course, the gang-tackling feature, which adds to the realism of the game.
Excerpt: Madden NFL 07 brings back practically every feature that was in Madden 06 (not a tough feat, considering how little there was to the package), as well as the superstar mode, which was heavily featured in the other console versions of Madden 06 but was absent in the 360 version. On top of that, a number of new gameplay upgrades have been brought to the table, the majority of which are available in all versions of the game.
Pros: A number of key features missing in Madden 06 have returned
Cons: Game still lacks features available in other console versions of Madden
Excerpt: Platform - PS3 Genre - American Football Since the debut of the Madden franchise twenty years ago, Madden has become the most successful games franchise on the planet. It has sold more than 51 million copies to date. Despite this not being the first Madden on the Xbox 360, this years game really is the first "full featured" version for the console since last years Madden 06, which was a very disappointing start to 'next gen' NFL (National Football League) experience.
Pros: Great Graphics and a return to great gameplay ! !
Cons: Anyone without Live cant access major bug fixes . Wheres Madden?
