I waited 2hours to buy this game while playing in a Madden 08 tournament. I see why they didn't allow us to play the PS3 version only the 360. The patented controls are horrible, no qb vison, the game runs at a much slower rate then the 360, it's not fun to play against friends, the game is very choppy and the game has so many sponsors after a touchdown i fall asleep. I returned this horrible game the very next day not getting my full money back. Please resort back to the Xbox 2007 version of madden and start from there great game, great online game please. don't take our money again

(Of Course, the roster is updated before trade deadline of 2007-08 NFL season.) First, the "Hit Stick 2.0" is a great update for Madden 08. Smaller corner backs can submarine dive at the legs on huge running backs! (ex: corner back Fred Smoot Washington Redskins vs. Larry Johnson for Kansas City Chiefs) The Design of the likeness of players and statiums are unmatch. The intelligence of A.I. for figuring out your plays on defense and offense is unreal. The franchise finally brought back the lateral or fake lateral button back! Its been about 10 years since that that happened. Special players have the their unique ways of effecting the plays on the game. (ex: Both Denver Broncos players Wide Receiver Javon Walker has great hands and can catch the ball spectatularly and corner back Champ Bailey is known as your shout-down corner by not allowing any opposing receiver catch the ball at will.) What sucks about this game is the "mini-game" its the same and I personally loved it better on the PS2 with their "mini-game". So, it's simply 9-10 and sports game of the year. Unless, NBA Live 08 take the show.

I just spend 64 bucks on madden 08 on ps3 and expecting one of the best looking games i have ever seen. But instead Madden 08 has the look and feel of the madden games of the late 90's. gameplay is slow hard to control and uninteresting. Aspects of the old madden games that we all love are now gone such as QB vision and the controls are completly different such as r2 is spirt and X is stift arm and so on. this game is not even fun to play with a friend because when u pick ur play u no longer have the old play book but now a list of plays and a cusor to pick ur play makingit impossible to fool ur friend to bite on play action and making screens and draws impossible this game is more like Blitz and makes me wonder if i can return it somehow
