Endsights: Madden NFL 09 Review - 6/10

Endsights writes:

"The online is lag-free, the graphics are updated and look good, and the gameplay, while unchanged, still plays great. But fundamentally, can the new additions justify purchasing the new edition of Madden? As a causal football and Madden fan, no, they're not. The new elements to the game were high in concept and poor in execution, leaving you with a game that is without a purpose for existing. (Besides a huge paycheck) Hardcore Madden fans can justify purchasing it with the inclusion of online leagues–but for the rest of you that don't care about that, stick with Madden NFL 08."

Wow, this scored lower than the Fable 2 pub games. I guess Madden is a flop then?

"Madden" and "flop" can never be used in the same sentence. Maybe in terms of quality, but never in terms of sales.

So which is it? Can they never be used in the same sentence or can I use it in terms of quality? How do you know I wasn't saying flop in terms of quality?

Don't consider a game a flop based off one review. IGN gave it like an 8.8, I think. I don't think that's flop material.

Granted, no year-to-year Madden is a big revolution in the way we play video game football, but for me this is the best version in a few years.

It may get totally defamed to the point of being on par to Scott Baio's acting career, but in terms of revenue-accumulation its nothing but a corporate honey-pot.

i hate this madden im happy i just rented it lag-free are they serious? every ea game i have bought or played on ps3 lags like hell. but before the bad connections come in i would just like to say cod4 resistance ridge racer fear none of those lag on me.

GiantEnemyCrab3409d ago

Yes for Madden I believe you are using EA servers on PSN and XBL. This person is talking about the 360 version so maybe PSN has more lag issues. I think they are probably about the same.

Going to rent it because I need an american football fix.

Xbox is the BEST3409d ago

ozsman3409d ago

When it has as much LAG as RFOM, I'll buy it... the way, Insomniac's never even heard of the word LAG.

Larry Fine3409d ago

have lag issues. I have NCAA on 360 and Madden on both and they lag it's EA and EA is terrible just get used to it.

krakdol3408d ago (Edited 3408d ago )

We have dedicated servers on PSN and it's completely lag free, unlike the crappy Xbox Live P2P...

Plus, it's free.
