    i already have to say and did notice that it has a quite solid quality for being under the circumstances of being on the ds. the gameplay isi already have to say and did notice that it has a quite solid quality for being under the circumstances of being on the ds. the gameplay is very realistic and for all the different mini-games and game modes it is quite well. but yes, if you do have a console get madden08 or on and on for that. also the graphiics are pretty good for what ds quality your playing with here. i think if you have a ds and want a game like madden08 go and get it because thats your right pick.

    Obviously, if you have a console, the best way to play Madden is on a 360 or PS3. But don't shy away from the DS version. Ports rarely Obviously, if you have a console, the best way to play Madden is on a 360 or PS3. But don't shy away from the DS version. Ports rarely fare well on the handheld, but this time, you get a shockingly deep football sim. It didn't think that tiny cartridge could hold a franchise mode and a create-a-team, player, and uniform. You also have all the team management you expect from the pricier versions. The only thing that noticeably suffers from these features is the music. There's only 3 songs in the entire game, so expect to hear them a lot. The graphics are decent for a DS game, and the controls work well. But with almost every football sim, playing defense is a futile chore. You just have to hope you can score more touch downs than they do. And yeah, you can play online. So in the end, there really isn't a better way to spend your time on a plane/bus/train. This is a surprisingly solid game. Full Review »
