Excerpt: It’s no longer okay to simply dismiss EA’s humongous Madden franchise outright as that video game of that massively complicated sport where mammoth-sized men covered in protective armour smash their helmets into each other like demented bison until one team falls down. You see, American Football is actually hugely popular in the UK. So much so, that Wembley Stadium has played host to two regular season games over the last couple of years. They both sold out.
Conclusion: It differs from the SuperSim you see in an exhibition game in that you can only sim till your superstar is on the field, but I think most gamers won't complain about that. Smart move, Madden. Smart move. I'm a big fan of Madden (I have the 2005 version for original Xbox), and I have to say, this is the best Madden yet! And, yet again, the only competition it has... is itself. Here's to another great year of football!
Summary: On-field authenticity and emotion is taken to another level in Madden NFL 10. With more control over the outcome of the play than ever before, players can drag defenders towards the first down marker, fight for a fumble at the bottom of the pile, and avoid the rush by stepping up into the pocket.PS3 Review - 'Madden NFL 10'
Excerpt: Madden NFL 10 review Game Over Online - http://www.game-over.com The end of summer, the start of fall, and the first mornings when you need to run back into the house to grab your coat. These landmark times can only mean one thing, it’s football season again, and more importantly, it’s Madden season again. The question is: does this year’s entry, Madden NFL 10, do enough to warrant your purchase?
Excerpt: You should know right off that bat that this year’s game is no cakewalk. This is arguably the most difficult Madden to date. Don’t expect to jump into a franchise, pick a receiver and throw fly routes all day on your way to a Super Bowl. Be honest, you’ve done that. The AI has been improved and toughened on defense, and the offense is also smarter. The computer-controlled team really will find your weaknesses and exploit them on both sides of the ball.
Conclusion: Greatly improved gameplay mechanics make it a long lasting gridiron enjoyment. Overall Madden NFL 10 is a step in the right direction for the series and well worth the upgrade from Madden 2009.
Conclusion: It took a lot of convincing for me to try another Madden game. Once I got my hands on Madden 10 and truly play it I was hooked. There is just so much in this years game that is note worthy, I know I left out some very important aspects. Fans of the franchise will instantly love this year’s game due to the realism while new players will enjoy the game after they take the Madden quiz.
