Summary: I've played every Madden since it was on the Genesis, Recently I've only played it on the ps2. I got a ps3 about a month ago and figured i'd give it a go on the next gen. Where to start? First the graphics are really great.
Madden 09 = Arcade, NFL Head Coach 09 = Simulation

Summary: Madden 09's game play was the issue I have found a tab bit disappointing and quite frustrating however, I thought NFL Head Coach 09 was pretty refreshing because it was the complete total opposite of it, which ended up being a good thing.
Summary: This is about an average game to me. The superstar is completely wrecked; they should have kept the old superstar from 08. In the 08 version of superstar, the player actually had to put effort into becoming a hall of famer; in 09, it can be beat in 1 season.
Summary: I have loved Madden games since I got 93 on the Genesis. I love that they included it in this game AND have up-to-date teams (Panthers, Jags, and Texans are represented; has Titans instead of Oilers, etc) I like the graphics and presentation of the game, as well as the IQ.
Buyer beware. Consider Xbox version if possible. No 1080i support. Horrible on-line issues on PS3 version.

Summary: I bought the Collector's Edition because I thought it was a great deal. I hadn't played Madden religiously for a few years. I was ready to dive back in. I wanted the Xbox version, but the friends that would actually play on-line only owned PS3s.
Summary: Madden '09 is a good game, but this is why I loved the NFL 2K games. THERE IS A RUNNING GAME!!!! I made a franchise with Adrian Peterson on the Patriots and I can't get a running game going! I'm not the only one with this problem. My longest rush has been 12 yards.
Summary: Is it just me or is this game not as fun to play as previous versions? It felt sluggish on my PS3, the players did not move as quickly or smoothly. I would have expected excellent performance on a PS3. Cycling between players was more difficult too (the square button no longer goes the other way).
Summary: the game is diffrent and harder then 07 06 and 05 the ones i have play but superstar mode is extremly fun.in fact the only reason im giving this 3 stars is because it freezes.but only if you play it for more than 1-2 games in a row.if your in franchise mode you need to save it each time after a...
Summary: It truly is a sad day for NFL video game fans. Way back in the day we used to have options. Tecmo and Super Tecmo Bowl for a quick and fun arcade experience, and games like Madden on the Sega Genesis for a more realistic approach.
Summary: Maybe my hopes were too high since this is the first Madden game I bought since getting a PS3, but I'm not just not overly impressed by anything in this game. The Graphics are very good, not great. The animations and physics especially on pass plays IMO are no better than Madden on the PS2.
