Summary: So I bought this for a seller that had it listed in the collectors edition section and yet it didnt come with all the discs (I was mad). I got a refund and kept the game and played it once. If you played madden its actually what it is and its not bad just not my style of game I only bought it because the extra disc yet I got stiffed
Summary: Madden NFL 09 is a game that every lover of Football should have in their collection! It is fun, challenging, engaging, and the multi-player experience makes it just like game day. Comparing Madden 09 to previous versions, not much has changed... The overall graphics are pretty good, but there are some times that players react and/or act like they are dead. I thing EA Sports could have put a bit more into the Graphics Portion.
Summary: Recently, a few friends of mine were looking to play Madden together. We aren't huge madden fans, but wanted to play on a PS3. Instead of buying a new game ($60), we went the used game route ($4) and are we ever satisfied. If you are willing to go back a year or two to a previous Madden, it is worth the savings. We still have a lot of fun with this game, it is PS3, so the graphics are excellent. If your not a huge Madden fan, do yourself a favor and go back a year.
Summary: If your a gamer and looking for an epic football game this is the way to go, madden is the pinnacle of the the football genre for all gaming systems. In particular if your a beginner or just looking for a cheaper way to play, 09 is last years roster of players because madden 10 is the current season, but if you don't mind that you can own this for a small fraction of what the current game cost, for example with combined shipping this might run you in the range of $15-$20...
Summary: I have owned this game before, traded it, rented it and bought it again. It's safe to say that although it's like others, as far as gameplay goes, I just can't forget the feeling I got when I first stepped onto the newly designed field at invesco mile high and my jaw dropped. It's still the best looking of the series and much cheaper than the finely tweaked/tuned 2010 version. This game is one of the best madden experiences out there. And it's much easier for beginners.
Summary: I'm surprised to see all the negative reviews for Madden 09, it plays a terrific game of football to me. My main beef with 08 was the choppy gameplay and that has been improved with 09's 60 FPS play on the PS3. The graphics are nicer and I like the commentary more than 08 as well. I learned many years ago that Madden is a much better value if you buy it one year behind, sure I won't have the latest rosters and features....but then I don't have to pay full price either.
Summary: Love the graphics and the plays! They make the game feel more real life. So real in fact, that I realize just how bad I stink at it. For that reason, I would say it is offers a realistic challenge to all football fans.It's all good!
Summary: Let me start by saying I am a fan of the Madden series but I hadn't played any new ones since Madden 07. I had started to get tired of the series because it just wasn't as good as year's past. Let me also add that I hate the fact that they have the exclusive NFL license. Okay. This is a decent game. It is Madden, so people who have played before knows that this means the players will do some crazy things at the worst times to mess you up.
