Madden NFL 08
Good, but no better than its predecessor.
Madden NFL 08 is a very good game, but I will express my frustration with the game. If you took this game, and compared it to its predecessor, Madden NFL 07, you'd swear it's the exact same game. The two of them have completely the same style, features, both of them have radio broadcasts with the announcers, which I really don't like. EA Sports has gotten so repetitive, and downright lazy over the years, it's no wonder that 2K Sports and MLB The Show and other sports titles have become so dominant in the gaming market. EA Sports went down a regressive path, all of their sports games from 2006-2009 have the same style, and same graphics. The only major difference between each of them is the sport. And as they went down this regressive path, each of their games got worse each time around. The Madden NFL series and the Tiger Woods PGA series are still great, however. The NHL series is still going strong. But most of their games have gotten progressively worse, which is why other sports gaming titles have been able to increasingly monopolize the market of their respective sport. EA Sports has made little-to-no improvements over the years. Don't get me wrong, Madden 08 is good, it's just no better than Madden 07.
madden 08 review
this game is pretty cool but the only thing i don't like about this games is the pictures under the best people on the team. it distracts me and might/probably distract you. the graphics are OK you have to think that game was made in 2007 not 2010. i like how Vince young is on the cover. i think on madden 2012 should have Chris Johnson on it and for NCAA football 2012 Denard Robinson should be on the cover cause ima Titans fan and a Michigan fan. but you have to admit even if your not a fan of any of those teams those players should get on the cover. but anyway i like the fantasy draft on madden 08 it's fun. all in all madden 08 is a great game.
Avoid this year's Madden
I got Madden 08 when it first came out and after playing more recent copies i can pick out many flaws they made in the 08 game. The gameplay is just too fast paced that it makes the game too unrealistic and just kills the enjoyment factor for me. The graphics weren't a standout even for its time and the game just felt as if they rushed the project to be released on time.
Not a great Madden
After Madden 07, I figured 08 would have been top notch, but I was wrong for two systems. The Wii and PS3 versions aren't as good as 07. I was addicted to 07 for a very long time and loved almost everything about the game. But I haven't played much of 08, and I wouldn't recommend it for even $2.99 unless you don't have any other option.
More Pros than Cons
Superstar mode is amazing, however to be able to unlock legendary status for positions such as HB and QB takes far too long. Franchise mode seems very disorganized, but the actual gameplay and graphics make up for it. Overall a very good football game for it's time (2007).
This game is great for people 4 and over.
This game rocks.I just don`t like how the turbo button is R2 and on ps2 it is X and they look the best.But don`t play the superstar mode it takes forever each year on the draft,about 15 minutes each.so goodluck.
This could be one of the best games of ive ever played how realistic the gameplay is and the amazing graphics the franchise mode is awsome and so is this game
Pretty good game
this was an alright game. nothing special. just another classic madden. the gameplay was pretty good but the graphics... not so much
This game is great for ps3. I bought this about a year ago and I still play it. This is awesome for 3 bucks.
