Gimmick or not, this year still looks significantly better than any of the previous next-gen games.

Madden is always good. Yeah there is stuff to improve but it isn't that big a deal.

Yea, the menu's sucked for both that and NCAA. I honestly hope they bring back 'in-game- saves, in case I have to leave middle of a game or somthing.

Dolphin Players exemplified on Madden 2008


On the latest and highly anticipated installment of the Madden franchise are the newly introduced "weapons" in which the game recognizes the skills of the elite players of the NFL and reinforces what makes them great.

There are 24 weapons, and each example portray's the player (encompassed by a picture in the background) in the NFL that is arguably the best at that specific skill. Two Dolphins were represented which I thought was great.

"Smart Linebacker" - Zach Thomas

"Spectacular Catch" - Chris Chambers

I dont think there are much better in the leauge at what Zach Thomas and Chris Chambers do at their best in repectively.

So when are they going to add Steroid user? I can see it now. Shawn Merriman 2 times larger than everyone else and he decapitates the quarterback. His weakness? Having to shower with the guys, he just can't measure up there.

This is both gaming and Miami related so which one does it go in? If gaming is more appropriate please move.

Well Madden 08 is supposed to be a good one unlike their previous ones. One new feature are weapons. The supertalented players are no longer just stars or impacts but considered weapons:


In Madden 08, players with these incredible abilities aren't considered stars or impact players -- they're now classified as weapons. These classifications are used to easily identify specialized player attributes, like catching the ball in traffic or being amazing pass rushers.

There are 24 weapons. Several for linebackers, the smart linebacker has a pic of Zach:

Spectacular catch has Chambers:
http://media.ps3.ign.com/media/868/868501/img_4656636.html

Ray Lewis was the brick wall defender (bleh) and they had Freeney as the finesse pass rusher (of course) even though JT defined that position and is still the best one!

EDIT: Title should say Madden not Madded my bad.

He does make the most acrobatic catches in the league, I can't think of anyone more so. And his back of the endzone catches are crazy. One-handers, etc.

Now if he can get the easy ones top ten baby!

Dwight Freeny was on the championship team, and taylor went from de to hybrid. I think that's why he didn't get it.

There are 24 categories, but not just 24 players.

Jason Taylor will probably be under the same as Freeney.

Oh I know he'll be a weapon, just woulda been good to get his pic in there instead of Freeney lol.

But having Chambers and Zach in there makes up for it, JT being our high profile guy.

You'd think at some point they are going to run out of ways to upgrade this game. It does look pretty sweet though, although I say that every year.

I already use Chambers as the focal point any how. It's a very strange day if he doesn't have 100 yards and a TD in my games.

Hey i have a question for ps3 + madden 07 owners. Is that version on the ps3 more similar to the ps2 or to the 360? I personally have both the ps2 and the 360 version but i think that the 360 version sucks.

Phin-o-rama
06-29-2007, 08:25 PM
the 360 and the ps3 version are identical except the ps3 has gang tackling....its a product of ****ty ea developing for the next gen systems that is making madden suck in 06 and 07...i am hopeful for 08 though..

the part that pissed me off most about 07 on 360 is the laggy menus.
