Summary: The only thing improved on this game is the graphics. It is much harder to find plays that you want and it is harder to navigate through the play sreens. The sprint button seldom makes any difference and the kicking game is much harder. If my ps2 was still working I wouldn't be playing this version.
Summary: This is by far the worst Madden game I have ever played. First of all, the game play is choppy at best. Second, compared to other PS3 games, the graphics are terrible. Third and most annoying, you can't customize controls. The standard controls are amazingly different than any PS Madden game before.
Summary: I'm reviewing this game knowing that they've been making Madden for 20 years. With that about of time and experience, some of what is on display here is inexcusable. Graphics: I'm not sure what everyone's talking about, but this is the same engine we've seen for the last several years.
Summary: Alright, first let me say this is a HUGE dissapointment for me. A lot of people have already pointed out the big drawbacks. Let me just add some more now after playing this title for a little bit. One, I can't run against anybody in this game!
Summary: I wrote a review of Madden 08 on here last year so I'd thought I'd follow it up with a review of this years edition. Or should I say Madden 2000.9? Now before you pass this off as a Madden-bashing review let me give you my qualifications.
Summary: Madden '09, the 20th anniversary, pays homage to the series by bringing its namesake back into the picture--not in his traditional position in the booth, mind you, but as a guy who takes a backseat to the rest of the game. This isn't my issue, my issues lie with the game itself.
Summary: I didn't buy Madden 08, so i don't know what kind of 'progression' can be seen from the last incarnation. But, i was a diehard Madden player for years before 08. I bought 09 on day one. My first reaction was "WTF?" I really don't understand this.
Summary: I have been a Madden fan since it came out some twenty years ago. This one kind of sucks compared to last years. The graphics are great, but there is no control on the camera. You can switch between classic and action, but even in classic view it does its little action view of the line.
Summary: I keep hoping every year that EA will get this right or at least better. About the only possitive for this game is the graphics. Game play is not bad, but come on can't they give the o-line some intelligents??? And once again the ratings are WAY too high.
