Great game for NFL fans.

  • Summary: I wrote a review on this game before, and I had nothing to say. Now, I'll be more specific with what I'm talking about. So, the Franchise mode is really good, because it's like your actually living the life of a manager of an NFL team. Very cohesive, very well put together, great effort by EA Sports with this game. In Franchise mode, you can check up depth charts, catch up with around-the-league acquisitions, and even check out the daily newspaper for your team's city.

  • Summary: Since this is my second Madden game, (first being '05) of course im regarding it highly. i haven't really followed the NFL until the 2011-2012 season, so i dont know if the rosters are accurate or not, but its game play is addictive. nice starter if your not into football. if your not a fan, this game will convert you. at least, it did me...

Much easier than the PS3 version

UnhingedGamer , GameStop

  • Summary: I have played this game for a long time and must say that the PS2 version is easier to play than the PS3 version. Controls are easier to execute, graphics run smooth and you get to hear the commentary from Madden and Al Michaels. However, there are some drawbacks: crowd animation is poor, the sound effects are repetitive and Madden tends to say "boom!" too much.

Madden NFL 08: decent game

  • Summary: I remember first buying this game. I thought it was going to be a lot like '07, which i think is one of the best ones. WRONG. many upgrades to this game including a new game mode, Fantasy Challenge. A great Madden game. -Camera Angle- Good camera angle, like most madden games, it offers different angles. Very easy to see the whole field. -Controls- I always like the controls on the newer madden games. Easy to get used to, responsive.

  • Summary: At first i thought this would be the same old thing just like madden 2007, But i was actually shocked, at how much this game has improved, some people were upset but thats understandable, this game has excellent controls, not a hard game to figure out at all for people who have never played a madden game before you need to try this one out to begin with, and then move on to better ones, the sound was not very good, uncapable of giving you a good impression you are...

Too Easy

  • Summary: This game is good expect that it is very easy I know that I hate when they make games so hard that it frustats you so much that you just want to break the cd in half and throw it away but this game is the exact opposite because it is just so easy for example I average about 45 points a game and give up about 10 thats a 35 point difference and to tell you the truth I don't see many teams in the NFL winning their games by 35 points.

OK needs some improvement

  • Summary: the problem with this game is its the exact same as the other maddens. All they changed was who plays for which team madden 09 looks much better with the many modes you can play in. I mean come on backyard football looks more fun than this What they need to do is put in some playoff modes where you can pick a team and drive them to the Superbowl. Now that would be fun.

Eher Strategie ...

  • Summary: Wer mehr auf Action steht, sollte sich da nicht für interessieren. Hier geht es mehr um Spielzüge und Strategien. Man kann die Spieler wohl steuern, aber da benötigt es schon eine Affinität zum Sport, um hier Spaß zu haben. Für mich genau richtig diese Mischung. Der Händler war schnell.
