Do you think Madden 08 sucks
 
its still a very playable game and pretty addictive since i love football but do you guys find that madden 06 for reg xbox was much better than the new ones 360. Not so much with the gameplay but everything else as far as the depth in franchise mode. They have taken away everything and have slowly been building it back up. why cant they just keep all the cool stuff 06 had like substitutions and custom unis, better draft classes(08 drafts are pretty unrealistic) And BEING ABLE TO CHANGE A PERSONS POSITION. Like changing a cb to a s or just a rolb to a lolb without killing their overall. and also in season progression. so many dumb things with this game. 360 has so many good games so i know it gets better than this. Madden needs to be an elite game again.

They should probably make a game where you CAN SEE THE FLATS WHEN YOU ARE PASSING.

On the highest skill level (all-madden), 08 is pretty downright unplayable when the most improbable stuff in the world happens to screw you every other play just to even the playing field.

Seriously, try getting through a season with Campbell throwing less than 30 ints on all-madden. Even if you play perfectly, it isn't going to happen.

I still shouldn't have 120 games experience on the toughest skill level, and still being intercepted once every 8 times I pass.

EA really dropped the ball, IMO.

I dunno I really like Madden '08. I think it's the best one in years as far as gameplay is concerned. It's definitely challenging.

I'm playing 08 on a ps2 this year because I haven't gotten a next gen system yet, but I'm gonna get either a PS3 or Xbox360 this year because I def. want to get GTA 4 when it comes out in April. From the looks of it tho a lot of people are disappointed with next gen Madden. IMO 08 for both next gen and current gen really dropped the ball, I don't like playing it that much on ps2 because they did almost nothing to make the game stand out from last year.

I love on All-Madden when you can watch the replay of the ball stopping in midair and changing directions like the JFK bullet away from your open receiver and into the arms of a defender. All-Madden is only playable with an elite qb, forget about about it with the Skins.

GTripp, not being able to see the flats is horrible. Last gen Madden had adjustable view options, which this year's game does not.

What else? How about the computer not being able to challenge plays? Or punting from your 29 yard line when they have a good kicker? Or punting on fourth and inches from the 40 down by 4?

How about players not developing in franchise mode? Carlos Rogers won NFL defensive player of the year for me and dropped a point the following season. Rocky has been a perennial probowler in my franchise and is still stuck at about 81. I got Campbell up to 84 after several consecutive probowls.

I think on the one hand it's easy to say that this game is better than last year's, and it probably is, but every year we continue to see a game that is highly flawed. When EA bought the exclusive NFL rights you feared that the quality of the game would suffer and it has. Madden 05 was the last great version imo, not coincidentally the last year they had to compete with 2k. They get away with these annoying problems because they are the only game in town, and it pisses me off.

It's different than what I'm used to. I think its a lot more realistic, and I use a power running attack and loads of blitzing which will work pretty well and are easy to execute. People who master aggressive passing attacks in the game have a solid advantage, though... which I haven't yet.

I thought I was the only one.

I know all you guys are pros, but I really miss games where I could absolutely pound the computer if I wanted to. Like I'm talking scores of 200+ to nothing. I miss those days.

Yup. That's why I play NFL 2K5 on Rookie mode :)

I'm going to have to buy me a damn Dreamcast for this!

I know people enjoy challenges and that's great, but I play to win baby!

Honestly, I think Guitar Hero is the only game I've ever played on Expert in my life.

Well, I really like it for PS2, but I have it for the Nintendo DS and it's amazingly frustrating.
I feel for the PS2 it's challenging and I am enjoying the challenge.

Re: Do you think Madden 08 sucks
 
i only play on all pro against the computer... i like human competition better than a computer. I get extremely frustrated when a computer beats me. Its getting hard to find a decent online game. Its either glitchers (theres a couple of pick plays in a couple of playbooks that are almost impossible to defend) or young cocky pricks that go for it on fourth all the time, go for 2 every time, and quit if you start beating them....
