These strengths and abilities allow players in Madden to change the game as their real life counterparts would. This leads to Madden's next in-game improvement, the Read-and-React System. Madden 08 presents gamers with a slew of pre-snap controls. You...

The AI has also been improved upon. While the CPU still calls boneheaded plays at times, it serves as a more legitimate opponent (even without playing the higher difficulty modes). This results in a much more entertaining gameplay. Your offensive line...

There are very few things in life that can evoke passions like sports can. Fans are not shy about talking up their favorite teams, while letting you know everything that is wrong with yours. Therefore it stands to reason that for every proponent of...

Madden 08 has more line of scrimmage adjustments than a gamer could hope to squeeze in before the snap of the ball. The familiar audibles, line shifts, hot routes, motions and coverage audibles are still present, but you have some new considerations...

Time for the yearly Madden review.

In the end, that's really what Madden 08 on the 360 is - it's a game that while still fun, is nowhere near the level that it should be. A game this popular and that is this much of a money making machine should not have some of the problems that crop...

It's not half a Madden game anymore. This is an actual Madden game at its best

You'll rent it to prove that everything said in this review about it being a full Madden game was not a lie

The Good, The Pretty Good, and The Mediocre

It's Madden!; Plays great versus other players; Looks great; Improved A.I

Warts and all!; Still more room for imrovement

John Madden football has been a part of my life for nearly half the years I've been alive. Like any old friend, it's been a combination of annoying, comforting, fun, and frustrating. The good news is that this old friend seems to be trying to change...

Brilliant on the field and off, Madden delivers a gridiron feast

Superb, smooth gameplay ; Hit Stick devastation ; Relocating the Cowboys

Hypercomplicated controls ; More advertisements than ever ; Minimal online options

DON'T BUY THIS *unless you love turnovers everyother play* Post a Comment

A great edition to the Madden series. This is definitely the year to buy if you haven't in a while. Keep in mind if you have to choose, the 360 version is the one to get.

Bringing the action and excitement of the NFL to your living room has never been this much fun.

Improved animation; on-the-field weapons make superstar players stand out

No online leagues; commentary and soundtrack are passable at best

after your star RB crumples to the ground. On the offensive side, your wideouts and tight ends will realistically twist their bodies to reach for thrown balls and will drag their toes if making a catch while falling out of bounds. All told, this game...

fans will be wowed by the new and improved artificial intelligence system that’s been implemented this year. This was immediately evident the first time I put the game in the tray, as I marveled at the fact that the computer-controlled quarterback...

EA redeems its flagging franchise with one of the best-playing football games in recent memory.

"In past years, armchair jocks would simply substitute their No. 1 receiver into the slot and run constant corner routes. Those days, thankfully, are gone." Any seasoned Madden fan knows it's not about a turbo button or spin move -- it's about reading...
