Part of the allure of the guide I think is to get an advantage with Top 25 best plays, but these are specifically already called out within the Madden game, it has its own playbook entry as "MaddenBible" as is downloadable to everyone. I think PrimaGames also puts out videos of guides/tips available to anyone, so much of what you are paying for is a paper copy of the tips and for things like video games, having a video might be a better technique to learn that screenshots.

I am going to go through the team pages in more depth and will update the rating positively if I think it is a great benefit but I feel much of the info could probably be gotten as you play or online. I could be understating the guide's value so I am not downgrading my rating for that. I just wonder if I will gain more from Madden Skills Trainer than the book.

But for POSITIVES, I do like the "play call sheets" for each team, I think they will be nice for in-game when in a pinch. But general "pro tips" like "HB Demarco Murray should see the majority of the carries for the Cowboys" - oh really ; ) - are just filler.

I am downgrading my rating for not being able to get my Barry Sanders for MUT. First, I now understand it is only a lower-rated Barry Sanders, an 85, so I wish that had been called that out but even so, I would be able to use him at the beginning before I upgrade my team through earning coins or the Auction House. Anyway, you need to go to [...] to put in a code from the book in order to get a code that will work on the PSN.

Anyway, that website does not work well at all. I tried to register and first it errors, "There was a problem creating your account. Please try again". I try again and it says "That username already exists. Please try a different username.

As a football sim, madden is missing one thing. Instructions on HOW to play the game. Sure there are controls and tutorials and skill drills. But missing are things like, when do you want to use a dime package? What situations call for a quick pass, why would I want to put a man in motion?
This guide won't tell you any of that either, but it does give good coverage of each team's top plays and situations to use them in. Between that, and the analysis of each team's strengths and weaknesses, you have a pretty good start from being an armchair quarterback, to having a deeper knowledge of the game

Wasn't impressed.... Lots of tips, maybe too many.....Lots of team specific info, not a good book to teach kids the game... I wanted something to teach the kids the differences in defensive formations, play calling.... This book concentrates on each team's strengths and weaknesses as determined by the programmers..... Maybe, too much info?

Okay guide, left a lot to be desired in planning and gameplay support. EA has gone downhill since building the multi-player "Gold Card Packs" filled universe. Trading electronic cards that have a 1 year life to them until EA pulls the plug so quickly the game becomes worthless.

Its ok, but the free players code is useless on xbox. Some how you are supposed to go to Prima's website to get them? Then how do you get them to your xbox game? You would think Prima, and xbox/etc could set this up for their customers.

it gave goods tips for each individual team, but I really thought it would give you more tricks/codes/secrets to the game. Was just okay and not sure I would have paid for it if I knew that it really just went over stuff you could figure out on your own.
