Playstation Illustrated
9 November 2008
  • Excerpt: This year Madden celebrates 20 years and while the joke in recent years has been that the annual release was merely just last year's version with a few minor upgrades, Madden NFL 09 hits what could be considered some of the series' biggest changes. Visually, Madden 09 is the best the series has ever looked. While it still doesn't come close to that target video from a few years back, Madden 09 manages to impress on nearly every front.

  • Excerpt: Last week, I had the opportunity to give Madden NFL 09 for the Xbox 360 a spin and I was impressed. The new features, enhanced visuals, slick presentation, and stellar gameplay all contributed to arguably the best Madden football game to date. It is a good thing too as this year is a big year for the franchise as Madden is celebrating its 20th birthday. This week I spent some time with Madden NFL 09 for the PS3 and once again I am impressed.

  • Excerpt: It's the most popular and well known sports franchise in the world, and without it, EA may not be the gargantuan powerhouse they are today. The Madden series has gone through a horde of competition over the past 20 years: GameDay, Quarterback Club, and especially NFL 2K being the most notable. But no matter the football sim, Madden had no problem outselling them all combined.

  • Conclusion: With new features like Backtrack and old features like Superstar and Franchise mode, Madden 09 is probably the best Madden yet. While year to year the value of the updates has been variable one fact remains – there’s still no Jonah Lomu Rugby remake and FIFA still hasn’t put Road to the World Cup’s headbutt button back in. Madden is still the best solution for gamers who want a complex football simulation, even if it isn’t the exact football code they want.
  • Pros: EA Sports Backtrack should be in every sports game from now on – even ones that aren’t EA Sports games., The animations and graphics are better than ever., It’s an immersive football experience., Superstar mode is still great, and it’s great to see it in more games – check out Be A Pro mode in NHL and FIFA.
  • Cons: The AI still gets dumb sometimes – out of bounds passes and worthless blocking is not consistent but occasionally frustrating., EA Replay should never see the light of day again. No one needs a mulligan.

Review: "Madden NFL 09" (PS3)

2 November 2008
  • Excerpt: EA Sports die wievielte? Ich glaube schon beinahe jeder dritte meiner Tests kommt aus deren Ecke. Mit „ Madden NFL 09 “ darf ich diesmal aber auch über einen meiner Lieblinge berichten - und Ihnen Verbesserungen und Neuerungen zum Vorgänger präsentieren. Was dem einen als immerwährende Neuauflage desselben Spielprinzips und auch beinahe Spiels selbst vorkommen mag, ist für den anderen solide und gute Unterhaltung mit ständiger We­iterentwicklung auf technisch aktuellstem...
  • Pros: Offizielle NFL-Lizenz, Schöne Full HD-Grafik, Intelligenter Schwierigkeitsgrad, Tolle Wettereffekte
  • Cons: Aufwendiger Einstieg, Nur viel Übung macht den Meister

Madden NFL 09

Game-Focus
1 November 2008
  • Summary: Malgré les menus un peu complexes et les petits problèmes techniques, mineurs et sans incidences sur la jouabilité, qui se glissent ici et là, nous pouvons vous affirmer que Madden NFL 09 devrait ravir les nombreux fanatiques de Football qui attendaient un vrai titre « next gen » depuis le lancement de la PLAYSTATION 3. À acheter, les yeux fermés.
  • Pros: Le « Madden IQ ». Les ligues en ligne. La « Action Cam ». La durée de vie ÉNORME. La jouabilité. Les progrès au niveau des graphismes.
  • Cons: Menus denses et nombreux. Demande de la persévérance. Mini-jeux banals. Le « matchmaking » parfois étrange lors des parties en ligne. Quelques problèmes mineurs.
