I'm actually pretty anxious for this and NCAA 08. Normally I like to have a long franchise on a Madden game, but since I got NFL Head Coach I plan on doing a Superstar type thing in NCAA, then transferring him to Madden. I wanted to last year, but the game sucked so bad I didn't want to dedicate the time. Should be fun, as long as they keep that cool SS camera. :thumbsup:

i came up with an idea how to work out who will be on the cover of madden that should eliminate the madden curse. the cover should go to a player who is likely a future hall of famer who retired the season before. it is a good way to honor the player one last time. like for madden 07 they could of put jerome bettis on the cover. and for this year, even though hes already been on the cover marshall faulk officially retired during the off-season. this wont work every year but it could eliminate any talk of a madden curse.

Actually there is a lot of players in the league faster then hester. Why they gave him 100 speed is crazy. He scored against seriously bad STs. He has a 4.51 40 and heck we have willie, ried, coc, ike who are all faster then he is, just naming some names from the steelers who are faster.

Hester played on a good STs team, picked holes well, had great blocking in front of him, and if you get thru the first wave heck its the punter left. Not taking in count that every team he ran back on was ranked at the bottom in STs in tackling and giving up good field position. Oh Well who said Madden was ever perfect.

It's because if he isn't as good in the game as he appears to be in real life, people will be pissed. And you can't expect the average madden player to be able to juke and move and set up blocks like he can, so I'd say the only answer was to give him mad speed to simulate the "unstoppable" return capability that he has.

Ya good explanation, every one who know anything about football know ya hester is fast but know where near the fastest guy in the league. So, to give him the first 100 out for his speed is crazy. But it makes up for so now he can return punts for TDs in the game like he does in real life.

its like what deon sanders said when he was in college- he has "next man speed" if he has to run past a guy with 4.4 he will run 4.3 or 4.2 he will run 4.1

That's true. But if you're going to go with a rookie anyway, at least go with one that set a record or something.

steve smith and polamalu should not be 99s, troy should be like a 97 or 98 and smith should be a 95 or 96, both had average seasons for their position.

No offense dude, but that sounds ridiculous. I have been playing Madden since the Sega Genesis days. I love the game. But, it has gone through ups and downs over the years of sucking then having a great one. The 97 and 98 version were great, but most of the recent ones have been roster upgrades wwith a new animation or two thrown in. Madden gets old. That's why Sega 2k5 was so refreshing. It was sad when EA bought out the NFL rights.

Madden, in recent years, has been a disappointment to me. The past two years on the 360 have been really bad.

Regardless, who cares where they are ranked in game? You can edit the rosters and attributes.

I agree - There are players just as fast. If anything, his agility would be maxed out, not the speed.

Makes a lot of sense.

They do so much mathematical analysis of power, speed, etc. etc. both as individual players and what the team can do... I think that the final outcome is normally very solid.

You know Lawrence Timmons will probably be really good but I think Leon Hall would have been a better pick for us considering that we already had James Harrison, who has proven he can be reliable when in a game, and Clark Haggans. When in the secondary we have a undersized saftey playing corner in deshea townsend and In my opinion a great cover corner who cant catch in Ike Taylor, I think that maybe the steelers have a lot of confidence in Bryant McFadden who is way underated in speed he is great better than townsend.

Ok Vince Young made the pro bowl right hmmm... I think that fan favorites are starting to come in as they are in the NBA because there is no way in hell Young deserved to be in the pro bowl Ben was better than he was I am not saying Ben should have made the pro bowl, but come on its like Tony Romo it seems like voters get to sucked into the media hype rather than voting in the best players. Vince Young on the cover what a joke you would have been better of putting Vicks co defendant on the cover. watch vince young will be rated like 90 and I'll be pissed because thats way to high of a rating its like michael vivk having a 90+ rating what a joke I think that a scrambling QB should have to prove themselves as a passer before they break the 90 rating.

SteelerManDanTeix
08-01-2007, 12:23 PM
Probably because they just lost their starting qb I bet before green was shipped off they were about an 85 judging based on where they are on the list its ok cause they suck every year any ways Johnson is the only player that the NFL needs on their team

2: If During roster update once we have madden 08 they remove vick

No worries...EA hasn't done much with Madden in the past two years. Depending on your console, 05 was probably better then 07.

I am not buying 08 until I get the general consensous from all the review sites. I don't want to waste $60 on a roster upgrade I can get for free with 07.

there is a huge difference between 07 for ps2 and 07 for ps3 trust me on the ps3 its not just a roster update

I had an original Xbox and now have the 360. I know Madden 05 through 07 on the original Xbox were pretty much just roster updates. I got 06 on the 360 was just a demo of a game, in my opinion. 07 looked pretty but the gameplay was not smooth or fun and was pretty much panned in reviews. I hope 08 is better. I know NCAA 08 is way better then 07 on the 360 so that makes me hope for decent things from Madden. But, I will be waiting till it's reviewed before I buy this year?no more $60 roster updates for me, thanks!

I only hope they finally use the ESPN license like the 2K5 Sega football game did. I miss the Berman halftime show!

SteelerManDanTeix

It's a bias thing...I played them both and have no great love affair (they are just games, after all). But NFL 2K5 did so much for presentation that it pretty much left Madden holding a hanky that year....Add to it the crib, the ESPN licensing, the onfield play (You could even put your own music in the stadium!

Well...Reggie Bush did come out of college drafted #2 with the most potential since Barry Sanders and had an awesome rookie season.

Parker was undrafted. He did have a breakout season but he is still proving himself in most people's eyes (outside of Pittsburgh fans).

Reggie Bush is a great receiving back so his catching may be higher. Willie didn't play on third down so his blocking may not be high either.

i got it already!!!

the hits are awesome. the only bad thing ive noticed so far are the kickoffs. 9 out of 10 times they will be downed in the endzone. The gameplay is a little different with the new catches and tackles. The display during the game hasnt changed and neither has the damn radio announcer. I havent had much of a chance to really get into it but so far its great.

OK...I have read some negative reviews although they unanimously say it is better then last year. I also heard it is much better on the 360 then the PS3 as it runs at 60fps vs. 30fps on the PS3.

But, from what I read, they just added all the stuff they took out from the last couple of years...and have updated rosters. Hmmm...perhaps I will wait till I can get it on eBay for $30.

I've only gotten to play one game so far...but the tackling and overall gameplay seem to be improved.

One thing I've noticed so far: Ed Reed is almost unstoppable...if you throw the ball in his direction, he's either going to pick it off or crush your receiver. :dang:

Man, I am very sorry to say that we have another year of the same old junk... EA fixes on problem and creates another as usual... The accelerated gameplay is annoying to me because I hardly feel like anything has happened between the snap and when Willie Parkers knees hit the ground and the 'innovative' player abilities have been done before... Multi-player offline sucks because of the play selection and the models are still way to bulky compared to real life... Sorry but I am going back to All Pro Football 2k8... I am in a mock NFL league as the Jets and the game play is so much smoother... Thomas Jones is on his way to the rushing title for me and Jonathan Vilma is the league sack leader and weekly MVP week after week... Hopefully they come out with patches to fix some of the stuff in Madden but I doubt it... Hope you guys enjoy it, but I am glad I rented it instead of buying. Let me know if they nerf DB's or slow the pace down through an update! Have fun :)

Just as I suspected...I downloaded All Pro 2k8 and loved the gameplay. How is it? I may consider this game instead of Madden this year. I am sick of roster updates and "improvements" that were just features they dropped from previous versions and added back in.

I read that the graphics and presentation are virtually unchanged from last year. How about the ESPN utilization in Madden this year...any different from last year? I hope??

I got it for the 360, and I must say that it is awesome. there are a few things that I do not like so far, but I think I just need time to play it. There are a lot more INT's this year, but that is b/c the DB's actually play like they are supposed to. I played APF2K8 and while I thought it was an OK game, he doesn't hold candle to Madden or NCAA for that matter.

Now for a plug:
if anyone is interested in joining Madden Leagues for the XBOX 360 (they run 3 of them at a time) go over to unitedleagues.com it is an all adult league website, it costs $5 to join a league, but it is well worth it. If anyone signs up, you can use my name as the referral, Loaf31

Madden 08 on the 360 is the best in a long time, the play and feel of the game is just excellent and totally a 100% upgrade over 07. I here people and friends who have the PS3 just very upset because it does not play as good as a 360 and look as good as it does on a 360. One of my friends online having a PS3 said no way and he went over to a buddies house and played it on the 360 and he is ready to take his PS3 back. I am happy I did not buy a PS3. There is games you cannot get on the PS3 that are just totally awsome on the 360.

its a pretty damn good game for xbox 360. the animations are simply amazing. my only gripe is that i have found it extremely hard to pass the ball on all-pro, especially with the steelers. it seems as if the dbs run better routes than the wrs, its a bitch to shake a cb with the steelers wrs. washington, wilson and reid drop everything thrown to them if they get hit. fade routes are near impossible as the dbs jump over the wr at the last second. that gets very annoying.

Well I am a n00bie fan and a n00b to Madden '08 so from a layman's perspective:

great, fun game that is accessible to us 'L platers!'. I've already learned to ignore Madden's recommendations and scored a TD from a 70 yard pass to Hines in the dying seconds of the 2nd Quarter of SuperBowl XL2 :p (Saints @ Steelers). there do seem to be an awful lot of fumbles and interceptions in some games and not in others, a little too random for my liking but I don't know too much about the game as yet so maybe I'm just running retarded plays.

Anyway, now I just need to work out all the technical trading, training, drafts and all the other stuff I have absolutely no diea about lol! (Though i did trade big ben for Peyton - is that a crime? :s)

I have a 360 elite and I'm having a problem with Madden 08. My problem.....

For some reason in 'Franchise Mode', the game automatically stops simulating in week 7 during season 5. It won't even let me play the game. No idea what's up with that. I'm not happy with it to say the least.

Anybody else have this problem? Anybody have any ideas/suggestion? I've already quit one franchise thinking it was a one time ordeal. I thought wrong.

BTW, I know of one other person who is experiencing the same problem.

You can change the controls to the 2007 format. You have to do it manualy by changing what putton does what. I believe its under the game play menu.
