Summary: There is a reason this game is worth one dollar. It sucks, even though it is 5 years old it still sucks, I gave this game away less than a few months after I bought it, and Madden 09 was the last Madden I felt to buy. Now 06 was excellent.
Summary: I went from a regular xbox playing madden 07 which I thought was excellent. I finally thought they had all the kinks out of the system. Then I bought a 360 and bought madden 08 which I thought would be better. However only the graphics are better. The load times are really slow. The game freezes up sometimes and you cannot clear cap penalties during franchise so you are forced to get rid of some of your players.
Summary: Oh Madden, the reason and the proof to how ESPN NFL 2k5 was the best football game ever. Madden still looks, feels, plays like crap. ESPN would of swept madden away, but no, madden had to take all the rights to the NFL so they would be the only ones allowed to make the games. Every year they do the same thing and they put absolutely no creativity into their games. ESPN was way ahead of its time and madden WAS scared and took all the rights.
