Still NG3 with this new release.

Roger Penn, Amazon
2 April 2013
  • Summary: Ninja Gaiden 3 was a bad game. Is Razor Edge better? Yes but that is not saying much considering NG3 is one of the worst game of all time. With something like this you must start over from scratch instead of wasting time re-polishing it. The story is still bland, the gameplay although better without OTE, still a frustrating mess. There is no redeeming point behind this release. Behind NG3, NG3RE is the second worst NG game ever.

I got for $3 and I am dissapointed

Justin Dadswell, Amazon
24 December 2010
  • Summary: One thing I like about some Madden games is the ability to make a character and increase their stats through their career. In this one you can just create a team and just say you want everyone on the team to be perfect in every way. Game play is about the same as 07, minus some of the features I liked. It is also missing a bit of the flash that 07 had. If I had not gotten 07 for $3 at the same time I would have been terribly ticked.

ea not getting any better!

Matthew Cuypers "Mattgnome", Amazon
21 May 2008
  • Summary: This game is garbage I had high hopes for the Ps3 but it still looks real bad. The sidelines look corny, the players look alike, you can barely hear the announcing , its like static radio play by play or something. EA sports just doesnt get it. The crowd is color cordinated whats that all about this isn't queer eye makeover. I want better graphics like 1080 i should look like I want the players to actually look like there running instead of jogging.

Pure Frustration!

3X Champ, Amazon
30 December 2007
  • Summary: I'm not going to take too long on this review, just trust me...STAY CLEAR OF MADDEN '08 for PS3! >This game has an extreme case of the fumbles. (15 times for both teams combined in one 5-minute quarter game? This is while utilizing it's so called "protect the ball" feature.) >Filled with useless features. For example, a combination of buttons allows you to illuminate the part of the field you are looking at as QB, as if he was wearing a headband lamp.

In game advertising sucks

slayersteve, Amazon

  • Summary: Every time you get into the red zone, some annoying underArmour pop up ad appears. Having a UA billboard wouldn't have been that big of a deal, but having it pop-up and impede game play is unacceptable. Boycott this game, unless you want this trend to continue.

Franchise futility

Jeffrey P. Matthews, Amazon
12 November 2007
  • Summary: If, like me, you buy games like this to play general manager and build a Super Bowl winner, save your money. I was unable to get my franchise through more than three seasons before a glitch takes over and doesn't allow you to advance any further. From talking to others and visiting forums, I'm far from in the minority. In fact, most people seem to not be able to get more than a few seasons in before having to start over.

Massively Disappointing

SMB, Amazon
22 September 2007
  • Summary: I was willing to forgive the first version of Madden for PS3 for having way less functionality than the PS2 version, but version two should have caught up. For basic playability there is improvement in running between the tackles and short passing. However, on the strategic front PS3 is a big step backwards. You can't do player substitution - that makes it inconvenient to platoon RB's and impossible to platoon at any other position or to have a "fast receivers" set.

PS3: MADDEN '08

A. Schlosser, Amazon
15 September 2007
  • Summary: If you love headaches and frustration, then you would love this game. The game is filled with constant glitches and game freezes. I would rate this game as a zero star if there was such a rating. It took me 3 hours to get through one game with the quarters set to 5 minutes. The game kept freezing over and over and over until I finally got through one game in my franchise. Now, I can't even play a single game anymore.

SOO disappointed..

Hendu, Amazon
15 August 2007
  • Summary: They revamped the whole game, so even starting a quick game so Brady could throw a bomb to Moss was confusing. Once I got the game up, again they changed everything. Picking a play has changed. Change for the sake of changing as it didn't make it easier. Players are smaller, you can't change your view or the field, can't change audio settings, No Madden or Michaels or any intelligent play by play.

Madden 08 great game but franchise issues

J. H. Colling, amazon.co.uk
16 March 2008
  • Summary: Well... I bought madden as soon as it came out, its fantastic in superstar mode, which is why i bought it origanally, however after winning superbowls with my SupStar i thought id turn my hand to franchise, again did great and managed to turn the 49ers from rubbish 4-13 to superbowl winners in 3 seasons, unfortunatley in season 6 preseason the game locks up when training your players, Iv spoken to EA on a number of occasions and they tell me the same thing regarding a...
