Summary: I couldn't wait till i had this game. I read up on it, but didn't listen and would have bought it anyway. It's Madden so it's good right? Here are my prblems with the game. The game has two big flaws, you and the cpu fumble a ton and interceptions are also a pain. It's a big deal if your not very good like i am. if your play the game as a rookie you can score over a hundred points. If you up it and make it harder like allstar the fumbles and intercptions are a pain.
Summary: The graphics have improved, but the gameplay hasn't!!!! They still look like they have mailboxes crammed in their butts when they run!!! The fact that this years version allows you to edit players again was an improvement, however create a player is still lacking from the older PS2 versions. Some of us would just like to create our fantasy self and not have to train for ten years, just to be up to third string ability.
Summary: I'm a pretty dedicated franchise mode player, so I'll just list what's changed in 08 for better and for worse for somebody like me. Improvements: 1. Gameplay - Tackling, running, and receiving are improved. Playcalling has changed, allowing for play selection by formation, by type of play, by recently called, or by asking Madden. This throws you off at first, but you grow to accept it. 2. Style - The menus and backgrounds are sleeker, but definitely not easier to use. 3.
Summary: Madden 08 is so much worse in franchise mode than the 07 version for so many reasons. It is so much more confusing during the offseason, and your players dont develop by themselves, you have to develop them, and only during the season. During the draft, you cant simulate to only your draft pick, i dont understand why they did that. I personally like NCAA 08 a lot better because its exciting. Madden is BORING, and by the way the music blows this year. Don't buy it.
With Alex Smith playing like Tom Brady and Niners playing like the Patriots, something is wrong with the A.I. of this game

Summary: I've played this game for 2 weeks now and it's fun when you play online or against another human being. It's the same 'ol Madden formula that you're used to seeing in previous installments with a tad more detail and a few neat features but it's the same stuff. Playing against the computer however is a DIFFERENT story. Playing under ROOKIE difficulty makes the game just that, but ridiculously easy. When you set the game to PRO which is a step above ROOKIE, the A.I.
Summary: +excellent graphics, the uniforms are nicely colored to depict their real life counterparts uniforms, the SHINYNESS of the uniforms is a bitt too much but that doesnt matter. +excellent overall presentation, period. the menu's are easy to navigate, the team select screen is Very Attractive and everything is candy for the eyes. +the running game is great, its like real football when the RB pounds it up the middle for a pickup of 5, excellent job...
Summary: Some really good features in the game and overall it can be fun to play. The fumbles are a bit much - as I cannot tell you how many times I have fumbled the ball - WHILE I WAS COVERING IT. Plus - the superhuman abilities of the db's and linebackers to jump 6-8 feet in the air to intercept a pass. I always feel like I'm playing against the legion of superheroes - where everyone has a flight ring, except my receivers.
Summary: First let me start by saying I've been playing Madden for years now, since '92 in fact, so I do know a thing or two about my beloved football series. One particular thing I've always loved about Madden was its accessibility, its customization. Pretty much anything I wanted to do with it, I could. It was 'My Madden' in the truest sense. If I wanted to edit every team, every player in the league, I could.
