Madden NFL 08 is a continuous of the series which is about football. This game has some added control refinements, a huge increase in mini-games, a new mom-friendly “Family Play” control option, and online play. This package is great and it surpasses the other games in this series. Madden 08 includes lots of gesture controls, those who played the 07 version will be familiar with it. Most of the controls are brilliant. Being the ball carrier more motion controls will be at your disposal. Moving the Nunchuk left or right will move to the right direction. Moving the Wii Remote left or right will, likewise, throw a firm ball, and throwing it forward again passes the ball to the selected receiver. A quick shove forward will cause a powerful move. Superstar Mode is remarkable; you can create your own player and guide him through the NFL, with interviews, IQ tests, practice, and actual games, progressively building his stamina and skills, over the course of a full career. However by creating your character, you won’t be able to pick plays because the computer does all the in-game coaching for you. There are some good things about the game, including the new weapons system that makes it easy to pick out the star players on each team. Plus, the simplified menu is great, it allows you select what type of defense or offense you want then lets you pick a play from within that category.
