I don't know who needs to get canned at EA sports, but this game is buggy with bold, italicized, capitalized B. Wow.
I can handle bugs if the game itself is good, but it's just not fun to play. I was under the assumption that the PSP did nothing but good sports games. I played Virtua Tennis (loved it), Hot Shots 1 and 2 (loved them) and MLB 08: The Show (incredible...best portable game ever), so I figured Madden would be in league with those. Uh...no.
Thank God for Gamefly, or I would have probably purchased this thing and hated myself for doing it.
Some things to think about for Madden Oh-10
Franchise mode needs to have about 7 less mini-games. It shouldn't take two hours to work your way through training camp drills.
Games should be quicker. It's a portable game fellas. No need for the whole shootin' match.
When I put the game into stand-by, it shouldn't crash my PSP. Again, portable game fellas. Way to take away one of the only reasons to go with this version over the consoles.
When I drop back to pass and roll out, my QB shouldn't hit himself in the back of the helmet with the football.
How about just a little graphical niceness. The game looks like it should be one of those bonus games packed with the console edition...like buy Madden 09 and get Madden 93 for free. The game looks like it it was ported from the N64.
Madden 09 on the PSP is a step in the wrong direction. In my opinion, 08 was better in every way. Accelerated clock has been removed. On defense, you now have to wait about 10 seconds before you see how many RBs and WRs the offense has on the field. There is also a blue/gray football icon in the lower right of the screen during gameplay that is very distracting and I don't think it can be disabled.
