4.0 out of 5 stars Like last year with a Roster Update August 14, 2007
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
There is not a big difference between the 2007 and 2008 versions. There is a roster update obviously, smoother animations, and some other bells and whistles but it is very obvious that EA has moved on to the xbox 360 and did not put a whole lot of effort in updating this version.

5.0 out of 5 stars Same classic Madden. March 7, 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
First of all, I own both an Xbox and the newer 360. I bought Madden 08 initially for the 360 and absolutely hated it. My son likes it though, but then again he always preferred Blitz and other arcade-style football titles over the more realistic ones like Madden or Sega's series. That, by the way, perfectly describes Madden 08 on the PS3 and 360---too much like an arcade game.

Since last year's game, there are only minor improvements in Madden 08 for the Xbox and PS2. Obviously, there are some roster updates and purists will find that reason enough in itself to spend for 08.

The new "weapons" icon found on the 360 and PS3 versions is found here as well. This is indeed one of the few improvements featured on 08 sorely missing on its predecessor. Essentially, pulling back on the left trigger will highlight which players on both your team and the opponent possess "weapons." This is actually quite helpful. Say, for example, you're playing on offense against the Bears. You'll certainly want to avoid passing in the direction of CB Nathan Vasher if at all possible. If you're running the ball, you might like to avoid the route that could put you directly in the path of MLB Brian Urlacher.

Another nice little quirk appears in the Superstar mode. Before this year, you had no choice of which team you'd be selected by in the draft. If you're a diehard Cowboys fan, just imagine how sick you'd be if picked by the Redskins or 49ers. On this year's game you now have the option of being selected by your favorite team. Don't think, however, that your superstar will be #1 on the depth chart. Indeed, if you pick, say, the Colts and you're a QB, it's very likely that you'll be the back up to the back up---in other words, you'll still be #3 on the depth chart if not #4.

5.0 out of 5 stars Xbox game July 13, 2009
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I personally am a ps2 guy, but the Xbox games have better detail graphics than ps2. I just have a hard time with the Xbox controller, so I can't use it. But it looks great. But FYI, Madden 09 is a much bigger step up and improvement from 08 than Madden 08 is from 07.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great game February 3, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I love this game. I only wish Madden did play by play announcement, like in the older versions of madden. Been a long time since I have owned a console. Last one I owned was sega. So controls are strange to me , but easy to learn

5.0 out of 5 stars Seems to kee my boyfriend busy... January 6, 2009
By CK
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I know nothing about video games! So this may not be much help to many, but I purchased this item for my boyfriend for Christmas, and he plays it every day. The last Madden he played was 06 and he says it is very similar to that, but the graphics are better, and there are some different was to do stuff.
Now this is a man who is happy playing the same video game for two years, and who is very happy still with his Xbox, not Xbox360. For the game gurus, they are already finished with their Madden 09 and selling it to someone. I would have to say I recommend this for someone who is not a gameing guru.
