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.
