This year all bets are off, it is time for Madden to put up - or shut up.
time EA did th eright thing. Just, dont pull out the online so quickly.
I see your comment down below MK but only old school players will really know what I mean when I say:
I really miss Madden. o_o
"..I'll tell ya...he'll remember that number..."
Wow, Ea really did something with Madden 08. I was expecting another lame yearly update but its getting GOTY reviews for a sports title! 1UP, GT and GameDaily gave it 9/10 and Yahoo Games gave it 10/10!
360 version i'm guessing.
LETTER TO E.A: Get ur finger out and use the ps3 will u!!!
Oh, you know it was.
Will Gamespot and IGN also give it a big 9? Its been a long time since GS & IGN gave an EA Sports title 9.
EeeeeeeeeAAaaaa saaaaysssss thheyy iimmmmmppprrrrrrooooooovvvvvve ddddddddd iiiiiittttttttt........ muuuuuuuusssssssssttttttttttt bbbbbbbuuuuuuuuuyyyyyyy mmmmmmaaaaaaddddddeeeeeeeennnn nnn
and stupid me forgot to pre order it....damn!!!!!
millions will buy the game anyways lol
Ruins the surprise of the video.
i can't see it getting a 9/10 but a 10/10 thats doesn't jive with me.
lol, so 360 60 fps plus sharper textures? omg....
how can you not piss for owning a ps3 instead of a 360?
Sony fanboys would never admit it... but.. it is an insult against their intelligence when a more expensive console performance is inferior... Sony promissed 4D and 120FPS on the day the PS3 gets released... what do they fans get? a more inferior version for one on the most anticipated games in the US.... ironic.. isn't?
I guess... Sony gave a new meaning to, "You get what you paid for"....
Pay more for less....
Bladestar...do you make this crap up or are you reading from a cue card?
So EA didn't want to make the game as good on the PS3, that is surely Sony's fault right?
I know, I know, you're going to say Sony should've made it easier for them. It's Sony's fault for making a sophisticated machine that doesn't follow the norms to get better results. I hear you dude, I hear you...
Now I'm not listening.
as a ps3 owner im a lil bit pissed about the frame rate on madden but i dont give a sh*t cuz im not gonna buy this game anyway not a fan of football, basketball is more of my thing.
why are you even looking at this then?
"The 360 is FAR SUPERIOR than the ps3"
That is all that matters to me. I would surely be pissed if time and time again the Wii had the better version than the 360 version. Gladly I don't have to worry about that....just sony boys! ;)
I'm also glad to see that EA finally put Madden on the right track...the last few Maddens wasn't up to their high standards. Yeah the graphics of Madden hasn't improved much but the gameplay is and always has been top notch. I played the new 2k and also was a fan of the old 2ks, but the problem was that EVERYBODY plays madden so it is hard to fine some competition with 2k. Madden is a proven franchise and will always be a force to be reckon with. I'm just glad I get the best version! :)
Well, actually the Wii version of Madden 07 scored a bit higher than the 360 version in gamerankings. I wouldn't personally know about their quality though because I haven't played either one. This year the Wii version gets some features (like the telestrator mode) not seen on PS3/360, so it might be a good buy too.
first Madden game that I will be buying, since I believe 2004. I am actually looking forward to this one because it seems like the Madden franchise has been working on this one since the next-gen consoles came out and this is the first real next-gen football game. Becuase 07 and 06 where basically 05, but this one has some actual real differences. So I will be buying this one day one, very excited.
what ELSE are you going to play if you want to play NFL licensed football on a nex-gen console?
EA is akin to the galdammed Gambino crime family now.
You: "I want to play football NFL licensed nex-gen..woo-hoo.."
EA: "FuK you, Pay me!"
You: "I want the entire game to shine from the sidelines to the bleachers, not just a bunch of canned animations..."
EA: "FuK you Pay me!"
You: "Can I at least get field and line judges on the damn field? Forget the umpire, Head linesman and other 2 judges, I know the ref will be there, but..?"
EA: "FuK Y O U Pay ME!!!"
You: "Ok EA what about a new look to the game -- something that doesn't make it look like freakin 2006 still..umm sir...?"
EA: "Fuk you Pay me pal!"
You: "Well ok there are other things I'd like to ask for but can I at least get stable online play promised to me and my buddies?"
EA: "Ha, ha, ha...Get the Fuk Outta here...FuK you Pay Me! Or I'll break your fukn legs...chump....he, he stable online...whaddya you some kinda fkn wise guy?...this is the last time I'm asking for my fkn money Monty..."
You: "No sir...please don't break my legs sir...here, here's your money sir..."
lol ....nice nod to the best scorcese movie ;) ..... "now, EA, go get ur fukin shinebox!!"
Its a multiplatfrom game,and people will buy it no matter what Sony hass its own sports games as well, games that rub at 60FOS in 1080p .Bottom line is , its not new.
When Sony fanboys shut up about RROD, complaining about HDMI and the xbox 360 not having HD DVD built in and every other non game related thing I will shut off about the stuff that really matter to gamers.. at least I am not making things up. I'm I?
And where are those sports games? More promises?
I have the 360 and PS3, but I am ashamed by the PS3 allways being inferior. Because I bought it to have the best version of Multiplatform games.
we only need to look at first party titles to see the untapped power of ps3 ....i personally do not buy multiplat games (i only have resistance, motorstorm and ninja gaiden - exclusive titles see?) ...i only rent generic multiplat games - except for pes, and burnout, and haze (and some others) which were built from the ground up on ps3.
What you are telling us is that you don't want to play very many games??? You don't feel that Call of Duty 4, Assassin's Creed, Mercinaries 2, Devil May Cry 4, GTA IV and plenty of others aren't worth buying because they are going to be multi-platform? And as far as choosing a system with the best exclusives, the 360 with Gears of War, Halo 3, Mass Effect, Bioshock and Half Life Box far out performs the PS3!
i would seriously consider buying those games u listed especially dmc4 and cod4 ...as i said....there are great multiplat games ...however, whilst the 360 has an impressive exclusive lineup, sony does have a ton of exclusive games on the way too ....hs, lair, uncharted, gt5, mgs4, ff13 (fingers crossed for a team ico game) ....it's a matter of taste ..i prefer the sony exclusives...you prefer the ms exclusives ..fair enough ...peace ? ;)
OK I think I am one step closer to lifting my ban, giving in and rewarding what I still see as some lazyness. Sure they FINALLY added gang tackling and the hit stick actually looks like it may be useful now but still the weather looks like crp, the visuals are 2006 the crowd is worse then some pre next gen titles. And the most disturbing thing in the review the game stinking cheats. Why? Why do you make the game freaking cheat? Just have it play normal if someone wants to play on easy and whipe a team by 100 let them. If they want to play more realistic football and set the difficulty harder then your AI better dam well be harder without cheating. If the game has already predetermined it will win a match then WTF is the point of even playing it?
Still though, I tend to respect gametrailers. I still want to see IGN and gamespot and the more important USER reviews but I am edging closer to buying this one. It helps EA that one of my co-workers keeps pointing out the great scores and telling me how awesome its going to be. Of course the fact that Bioshock comes out the week after helps me come up with reasons not to buy it right now..... decisioins, decisions.
i heard that the ps3 will be EA sports lead console next year. But I just cant remember if it was on here or g4
Having a better version of Madden available than your competitor really matters. For those of you that did not know, Madden is the 4th biggest game granchise of all time with 56 million copies sold.
should have got an 8 since it's madden 08. lol
