    If you are from Europe and yet love American Football, this game is great for you because it includes some special teams and stadiums from Europe :D

    This game is awesome. Blows away any next-gen version still. The new fantasy challenge mode is light enough for me since I don't want to do 20 years of franchise.

    This game has awesome defensive control, and the kicking has even improved, and the game is so realistic, it look as though your their eating your billsberries! Isn't that sick!

    It bogs down a little in between plays and i have yet to notice anything all that different from last year. overall, it's more of the same, but that's why we keep coming back.

    This game is great period if you have a ps3 or ps2 buy this instead of madden 12. This game have nice graphics for a ps2 game and the commentary of this game is so much better then now days. This is worth a buy

    It's the same game and is the only genuine football simulator out there so that's why I keep getting it. It doesn't let me down at all though.........

    The weapon system, which is obviously carried over from the newer consoles, doesn't deliver the kind of experience that you'd hope it would, and the adjustments to the older gameplay doesn't do enough to radically improve the title. While Madden 08 is still an enjoyable title, it isn't nearly as impressive as last year's game.
  2. Not much has changed in the gameplay, outside of enhancements to the Hit Stick and the distribution of "weapons".
  3. The older console versions of Madden 08 offer a few control upgrades and a couple of bizarre new modes, but otherwise, this might as well be last year's game.
