Loved this game when it first came out, not so much now.

Summary: I remember LOVING this game when it first came out, especially because it seemed you could run the ball more successfully then in the newer ones. I lost the game a while ago, and got into the newer madden games since.
Summary: Another year, another Madden that thousands of football fans will mindlessly run out and buy. This is what EA Sports counts on every year, and this is what I did...again. First off, let me ask you - is it just me, or do these games actually get WORSE ever year?
Summary: I bought game a couple of days ago and was impressed with the gameplay and the grafics in exhibition mode but once i began franchise mode it all went down hill. along with managing rosters there were minor freezes where i played around with the button and reconnected the controller and some how got...
Summary: I hate this game. Someday I will learn that the professional reviewers are nothing but shills for EA sports and the NFL. Now I have reverted back to playing Madden NFL 06 on my trusty Xbox, which is a far superior product to either Madden NFL 07 or Madden NFL 08 Xbox 360 versions.
Summary: The Madden on the psp is better than the 360 for the second year in the row. Its unbelieveable that precision passers throw 2-5 a game in 08 for 360. This game is not offense minded at all. Randy Moss, Lavereneus Coles and even Devin Hester can be caught up in this game. Its a d@mn shame.
Summary: This game had a lot of potential. Improvements include new animations for things like spins, deeper franchise mode, and a better superstar mode (mostly because the camera is pulled back more). So, basically, EA tried to add some content to a bare bones 07 game.
Summary: This game is okay, and could have been a lot better! For instance, the ratings, the one thing that have been making me the most mad. They are completely inaccurate, not just teams overall ratings, but players ratings as well.
Summary: To start, I have been playing Madden since the series started and have been pleased with its progress. That is until it came out on the next-gen systems! Now it seems EA is more concerned with looks and graphics then gameplay. Example - Madden 07 for regular Xbox was GREAT, I still play it.
Summary: Off the top, yes, I am a huge fan of the 2K series of football. That said, I still own Madden 07 for the XBOX 360. I am new to the 360 and bought it mainly because 2K football was coming back with All Pro Football.
Summary: The highly anticipated Madden 08 is a big disappointment. Very frustrating gameplay even at the Pro level. Never again will you score 45 pts in a game due to High turnovers (I had 6 in my 1st game played), passing is basically not an option.
