Madden NFL 09

Here's the short and skinny of it - don't buy this game, at least not until the second patch comes out which EA say will help fix numerous issues within the game.

Issues which I don't feel like going into right now, needless to say they provide frustration and zero sense of playing an accurate representation of the sport of american football.

For PS3 owners, import a copy of All Pro Football 2K8 instead, as on the field it shits all over Madden from great heights.

For 360 owners, find a new sports game for this year. I would say NBA2K9 is a safe bet if you're partial to some hoops, as I am.

Hmm did I read correctly that the collectors edition has a copy of madden 93 or something also?? Really enjoyed playing the old maddens with my friends on megadrive...always remmeber knocking my mate back about 20 yards, sliding on the snow, only to recover and go all the way for a TD...bastard.

Can't get into NFL games nowadays anyway...and as much as I love basketball, NBA2k8 gave me the shits also even though I really wanted to enjoy it@#!@! Maybe I will try 2k9 when it comes...

Gah. 08 had problems too.

I might just skip this year :/ I barely played 08 as it stands.

This, plus the fact that PES 09 might not be all that great, is making for a dismal year in sports.

/holding out for the off chance that FIFA '09 might be the one to comprehensively outclass PES for once...

The CE has Madden 93 and the new Head Coach, which is supposed to be really, really good.

dbug if you want to play an american football game, track down Madden 06 on Xbox or PS2.

Avoid all Madden games on 360 and PS3.

Last-gen Madden takes a giant crap over current-gen Madden.

Current-gen Madden still isn't even in the same ballpark as NFL2K5, a three year old game!

From what my hockey-loving mates have told me, EA's hockey series is the way to go there.

This.

But, I've got NHL 08, isn't a bad game. Apparently 09's going to be blowing it out of the rink but that could just be fluff hype.

Marginally, but overall far less glitchy than Madden PS360 and plays a far better game.

Since you bought a PS3, import All Pro Football 2K8 instead. That is the SHIT.

I personally like Madden09, it's better than 08 at least. In my few games so far...

It's better than 08, which was better than 07, but we're talking dry shit vs runny shit.

Once this alleged sim gamer DLC is released things will hopefully improved. I'm over getting robo-QB'd as well as the shitty CPU play-calling which mainly revolves around a lack of a running game.
