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.
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.
Summary: I will be honest, this will most likely be my last Madden game unless something major happens.
Pros: This edition of Madden finally puts back all the of the missing modes from last gen versions of Madden. It also runs at 60fps like the last gen games too.
Cons: You still have to participate in an online match to download roster updates. In the PS2 and X-box versions you can download roster updates without having to play an online match. The presentation and commentary are still much worse than NFL2K5 for the original X-box.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: while some people may complain about the sound and presentation, which are no doubt laughable to say the least, the most important factor in any sports sim is gameplay. while madden 08 is a huge step up in regards to off field options (the addition of the fantasy draft and front office mode are MUCH...
Summary: No doubt about it, Madden 08 for the 360 is the best football game out there. Period. It's also the best Madden football simulation since Madden 05 (of current-gen consoles). Madden made its debut on the 360 two years ago. I still see too much of it in 08.
