Summary: This is the first year I have purchased Madden since the PS1. I was very happy with the product. Graphics were astounding and tackling moves were improved. By far EA seemed to improve very many things from 2006. But, I just finished my offseason for the 2nd year and tried to load Franchise to start 3rd season and got a Corrupt File message. This was the second time I have gotten this message.
Summary: I don't even know where to start with this abortion of a football game. Every flaw that plagued Madden 03 is basically still present in this game. Hail Marys work 90% of the time. Stopping the run against anyone but the computer is almost impossible. If you have a mobile QB don't even bother playing the game you're going to rush for over 200 yards. There's a reason why I didn't buy 06 and I am reminded very quickly by 07.
Summary: I like to play franchise mode with the fantasy draft. I completed my draft and moved on to training camp. After completing the first quarterback challenge, the game froze. I turned the system off, tried again several times - the result? Nothing but game freeze. Did a Google search and this seems to be a BIG problem for the Xbox 360 and PSP as well as the PS2 (which I own). I tried emailing EA, but they want you to create a user account or else you can't reach them - why?
Summary: Waiting in line to buy the new Madden every year is like waiting in line to buy a new calendar. Sure, there are enough differences to technically call it "new". There might be newer or prettier pictures but it's still just a calendar, just like the year before - same stuff only with slight changes. I know all the Maddenphiles and football fans say that there really are additions and changes that justify another $50/$60 drop.
Summary: I owned the past Maddens and the game has continually declined over the past several years.If you owned last year's or the year before that, then this game has not changed a whole lot.I was blown away by this game in 2001.I have never seen a game like that before.I, like many others played it for hours and hours.I even played in a 20 year franchise mode along with draft,preseason and every game in the season.I loved the game.Since then though, EA has taken my money in...
