Madden 08 Review

PlayStation Universe
8 April 2009
  • Summary: Though the feature set is identical to the 360, the drop to an unstable 30 frames per second hurts the game a lot. If you are a hardcore football fan - then buy this game. If not it's a renter at best.
  • Pros: Animations and textures have been slightly improved., AI has been improved, a bit., Better camera positions.
  • Cons: Madden gameplay is mediocre at best., Does not present anything different or innovative., 30 frames per second.

Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge

The Gamers Temple
17 September 2008
  • Excerpt: It's been just over a year since Ninja Gaiden 3 left me awash in despair. The series I've followed since I was a child of the 80's let me down for the second time ever (the first time was when Ninja Gaiden Black added a controllable camera and killed the fun). To put it as plainly as I can, I have to say the game just sucked. It didn't live up to the Ninja Gaiden pedigree and it wasn't even a decent action game independent of the franchise.

Madden NFL 08 Review (PS3)

About.com
31 July 2008
  • Conclusion: Finally a next-gen Madden worth playing. Last year’s gimped release was a drag, to say the least. This year not only is the PS3 version full-featured, it also has some key improvements that affect gameplay and management. I was tempted to sit out Madden this year and run with 2K Sports’ All-Pro Football, but now I’ll just have to split my time between the two, as Madden came to play this year.
  • Pros: "Read and React" feature is a hit, More difficult and more satisfying, Franchise mode has more depth, "Read and React" feature is a hit, More difficult and more satisfying, Franchise mode has more depth
  • Cons: Good animation, but still not next-gen enough, Perhaps too hard for casual gamers, It kills me to admit it, but the Xbox 360 version does run smoother., Good animation, but still not next-gen enough, Perhaps too hard for casual gamers, It kills me to admit it, but the Xbox 360 version does run smoother.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: It's nice to know the incredible levels of pure evil that EA stoop to still exist, and this yearly update of an ancient series goes to show that the bastards haven't lost their touch. It serves as nothing more than a requiem for Sony's aged system, whilst the real new blood surges forward on the NEXT GEN consoles. It's a good game, but it doesn't come highly recommended. Oh, and EA aren't actually any of the things I said, that was merely for comic effect!!!

  • Conclusion: As popular as it is with the gaming community the Madden franchise is very polarizing. People dislike the EA machine and the fact that yearly incarnations often feature minimal improvements doesn't help the matter. The changes made with Madden 08 are very noticeable and you'll feel how they affect the flow of the game. It feels somehow tighter and more refined, yet familiar and user-friendly.

Madden NFL 08

Project COE
14 August 2007
  • Conclusion: The one remarkable thing about this year’s Madden is its incredible depth in comparison to the previous games in the series. This is the first time this generation that we’ve seen any kind of owner mode, create-a-team, create-a-stadium, or even mini-games. All of these features are a sight for sore eyes, as it’s been three long years since we‘ve seen them.

Madden NFL 08

Console Monster
13 August 2008
  • Summary: Without a doubt, the Madden franchise is one of the most beloved and scorned titles ever created in video game history. “Hardcore” gamers tend to shun the series because of the lack of innovation, while millions of rabid pigskin fans eat up the title in droves year after year. All you hardcore gamers better grab a tissue to dry your eyes, because Madden is back for another run—and it’s one of the best entries in the series since it made the jump to next-generation...
  • Pros: Tremendous animations, Great sound effects, Superstar mode is surprsingly fun
  • Cons: Graphics are generally average, Way too many turnovers, Needs a new announcer
