this is a good game. Its got everything a football game is supposed to have. But it is missing some things. Such as commentary. Don't get wrong the radio broadcast is neat but I would rather have Madden and Michaels doing it and i don't understand why they aren't in the first place. Another thing that is missing are the guys that hold the down markers. This may not have anything to do with the gameplay but it just felt like it was missing something. But enough of the bad. There are more good things than bad things. The game play is great. The sound is good except for the already mentioned missing commentary. The superstar mode is pretty cool. The graphics I think could be a little better but overall good. the stadiums are are nicely designed. But I do have a problem with the fans though. They all seem to do the same motions over and over again which i thought took away from the stadium atmosphere a bit. But like i said there are more good things in this game than bad. I highly recommend this game and thought it was very good so im giving it an 8.

I thought this game was going to live up to the Hype...but it falls short!! The graphics are next gen but game play is like playing a 16 bit game...maybe Madden and Ea should give up the exclusive license that they have and let Sega show them how to do it right. The game skips a lot and has a lot of glitches during game play...I would gives this a 3 but graphics raises the bar for them...game play and cinemas scene are what brings this game down...

I remember playing Madden sitting around with my friends and playing little tourneys. But now you're opponent can see what plays you can pick, that's ridiculous. They don't even have a button to hide you're play selection. Visually great game, but very disappointed in that.
