Rated 7 out of 10 by Aquaman Heh dissapointting
I'm a big football fan. I've been buying the madden games every year for all my systems (wii, ds, ps3) whenever they came out. Now i've realized i've been wasting my money all that time. I love the game but it's too repetitive. I've been looking for a major change in the game for years. Every year they come out with a new madden and it's the exact same except for the interface. I hate that. Yes there are new players, but just that isn't worth it. The graphics are the EXACT same. The controls are EXACT same. The sound and camera is the EXACT same. The challenge is the EXACT same. The wifi is pretty much the EXACT same. I'm trying to come up with a few things that are actually different. The players. The interface. The cover of the game. The fact that it is 09. YAY! That's pretty much it. I'm sorry but i don't like it. If you like repetitive stuff over and over again get this. If you haven't bought a madden game before and are looking to buying one get it. If you're looking for something new in madden please please skip it

I haven't tried the previous madden games on DS, so I have nothing but the console counterparts to compare to... Madden 09 has what you would in general, expect from the Madden adaption on DS. The graphics have good 3-D textures, run smoothly and rarely appeare pixelized. No stylus controls here, which to me, are nice of EA to stick to more traditional controls. Sound is respectable as you listen to the quarterback, crowd chants and various chatting, and varied music played at the main menu. The online would seem that it would be good, but after waiting 10 minutes, I simply turned off my DS, frustrated that no one was online... But you can play locally with friends even if you together only have one copy of the game; which is a nice feature to the game. This game just can't get me hooked though, it's not really that fun. I would suggest sticking to the console side of Madden
Rated 4 out of 10 by ChargerFan17 Not Worth Your Time
Madden 09 is probably a great game on other platforms boutit is not on the ds. The graphics on this game are the worse graphics ive ever seen on a game in my whole life. There heads are triangles amd so are there bodys. When the run its looks like there about to fall over. This game is a tottalt waste of money so good thibng i got it on sale. This game is not worth buying
Rated 1 out of 10 by rice27 They failed!
First of all the graphics suck i can't tell which character i'm using until i see the name.Second problem this game is $25 bucks i mean how poorly they had done on this game it should be $10 to $15 bucks.Third problem you can only run because when i tried to pass everytime it is incomplete so i suggest you don't waste your money on this junk called a game
Rated 5 out of 10 by maxlevelplayer530 Madden, not for DS
Madden is a great game. I love the franchise. This game just didn't fit with the DS. You couldn't see the whole field & in franchise cpu would trade 100s all the time to me. Hopefully the future wil have better madden for the ds, if they continue on DS.

i still haven't decided to get this for wii or ds but im pretty sure that both will feature online play. I think that each year, EA will continue to make each version of madden better.

Rated 0 out of 10 by DBOSS13 Madden on DS is a good game!
Last year on DS, Madden was pretty good. I think this year needs more improvent in gameplay. I can't wait to get it on August 12!
