I think I'm gonna fold this year...it's the same ****ing game that they sold us last year!!!! Just a few (very few) cosmetic improvements, some stupid lame gimmicks and that's all.... oh and updated rosters, ALL that for just 60 bucks :rolleyes2:


Damn, I'm not paying 60 bucks again 'til they stop making 5 polygons sideline players or at least PUT A DAMN REFEREE ON THE FIELD!!!! is it so hard??


so, what are your thoughts on this one???

lol that demo was a joke and if you honestly think you even got a glimpse of the game from it then your lying. First off, the only game play open to you was a two minute drill of the giants that ended once you score and the madden test, which is terrible. You weren't even allowed to play defense which is just plain ridiculous.

Graphically though, the game looks better then it has looked in years. Theres no denying that. And that's about all i can say about the game from that demo. I didnt get to play defense, I didnt get to play as my dolphins, and since it was a two minute drill with one timeout, i didnt even get a chance to actually run the ball.

Realistically, the demo was only put out there to show how good the graphics are, and thats it. The actual gameplay is horribly gimped since you cant afford to do anything but pass and you dont play any d or special teams. This year it really does seem like they tried very hard to deliver a new and impressive madden, I think you're to quick to judge them off that demo.

I heard the players look really fat and it looks like NFL Blitz 2000 or something.

But i'm not buying it, nor do i have any intention of downloading the demo, so i could care less.

it looks fantastic. the player models and the stadium are top notch. The grass is also about as real as it can possibly look.

i honestly think that there is nothing else major that madden can do...i think they are stretching "next gen" consoles as it is...and until some new mindbolowing new technology is created...the changes are going to be cosmetic...BUT...i am video game fan and a football fan so i will serve my madden master


ALL HAIL

Well i played it on the PS3 version, i dont know if the frame rate or something on PS3 is worse but you can see dotted lines on the players mid-section area.....so.

You gotta be kidding man, this gen of consoles can go much much further.
A good start would be using an Euphoria-like engine instead predifined animations or ragdoll or whatever they use.... I mean look at thes vids and tell me if it wouldn't be a huge improvement:

I've been a diehard fan of Madden for years and this game will be no different then others. I've heard it's a huge improvement over last year's so I'm going to be getting it as soon as I get back from vacation. Madden consumes my life.

Played the demo on my PS3 when it was released and I gotta say I am very impressed with the upgrades.

The graphics are more real (especially the grass). The gameplay is very smooth and I love the madden test! I also like the way the camera slows down when you make a spectacular interception or catch.

Overall, this years madden is looking like it will be living up to it's expectations. I was extremely dissapointed in last year's version of madden.

After playing the demo, I have now pre-ordered my Madden 09 game.

only camera thing that bothered me was when my receiver dropped the ball it still focused on the receiver not the ball being dropped so i kept running like he caught it it was confusing lol

Not sure if anyone has noticed this, but you also gotta love the way when a pass is a close call to an incomplete, the defender will pick up the ball as if it were a fumble, hence, not giving up on a play. That was pretty cool.

you really have to game your heart out for it to be worth it. I believe its $15 a month right? And therefore, in order for it to be a deal you need to play at least 3 games a month, which sounds easy at first, but when you break it down its not. I mean what if you like the game and wanna play it for a week or so? What if its an RPG and you wanna play it for 2-3 weeks? I mean in the long run you very well could end up still paying around 8 bucks on each game.
