Well...hats off to EA on this one. The gameplay is great, graphics are very good and controls are easy to remember. My only problems are that the commentary is repetitive, there is not a lot of ways to customize your created teams, and the "Carrer" mode is fun for a while but you can retire and be done with a boring part of the game....The franchise mode is a great way to take over your favorite team or your created team...Overall...I hope that with a few tweaks Madden 09 will be a game to remember and/or keep.
The game is very fun with a lot of new features. Although it is fun, it is a lot similar to Madden 07. The only differences are the rosters. I can say anything. I play it every day. If you can get it get it. If you can't, than don't beat your self up. So I rate it a 9 out of ten. Excellent :)
