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: Pop this game into my 360 console, played it once, the next day start, i was about to play it a second time when a message pop out saying "Please play this disc in a xbox 360 console, pop it out, pop it back in a couple of times and it still says that!! I mean come on man WTF!!
Summary: I was excited to finally get my first Madden game since 03 and what did I get...none other than a horrible game! The gameplay is slow, the announcing is abso-freaking-loutely terrible I feel I am watching a crapy game with the mute button selected! Fortunately, I bought the game with a buy 2 get 1 free deal... I consider this to be my free game... because I got rid of this game quickly!
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.
Summary: I think it's important for everyone to know that this game freezes constantly. Franchise mode does not work for more than 1 season. EA does not have a patch for these fixes yet. Buyer beware, especially if this is a holiday gift. This game is essentially all looks, no substance.
Summary: Why does EA insist on creating stripped down versions of supposedly "next generation" games. This game lacks many of my favorite features. No coach mode! No computer controlled games. You have to have a user control one team, and because you can't do coach mode, and because the QB will NOT throw the ball on his own, you have to throw the ball youself. So your QB will only be as good as you are. No historic teams. You can't create players in franchise mode.
Summary: ok the 360 maddens have been hard turds so heres why 06 AI was stupid and game was slow and boring 07 it was better but i would rather play with my a## 08 i was happy thil it started freezing up in year 2 or franchize so don't buy ea's crap fest that is madden
