    I am a hardcore Packer fan so naturally I buy Madden 08. I just got the 360 so I decided to get it at a lower price. I payed $50 dollars for this game and I ran into a few bugs. Some things about the game were great but I am really getting fed up with EA's nonsense. There are times when I dont even feel like I am playing football, so here we go I want to start a bug list over here. I will start the list and you guys just post more and I will add them. Right now I just wish EA would start competing.

    List begin:
    -Coin toss starts before players are introduced
    -Players can run through the walls of the stadium
    -Players on the sideline have no face and mimic the movements of the rest of the bench
    -Giant blow up team logo where the players run out
    -Hot arm QB's can throw almost 90 yards
    -Crowd has the same movement
    -Dumb radio announcers
    -QB contain plays with 3 linemen set to crash and pinch create automatic pressure
    -WR and RB cannot throw farther than 30 yards or so
    -No polish to the experience

    Now lets go back in time to ESPN 2K5 on the Xbox

    07 was horrible. 08 was much improved. I agree 2k5 was awsome.

    Wow. If you are worried about the introductions and coin toss I already know I can school you.

    I'm waiting for a football game to actually use the next gen technology and not just improved versions of ps2 games.

    No, im good at madden but I am just pointing out some of the things that take you out of the football experience in the coin toss and running through the walls. I will play you some time PackOne.

    I'm still playing Madden 06. I usually stay a few years behind on the Madden games, because other than the new players, the upgrades from year to year don't seem that big to me. I plan on picking up 09 though.

    I'm still playing "Madden 94" on "Super Nintendo". (Not kidding)
    I don't have a fancy game player yet.

    Last football game I played was Techmo Bowl.

    These games nowadays are too complex. I guess too much for this old man. I like things simple.

    Thats the problem i have. I TRIED playing on a friend's game, and you had to "push button A, hold button B, pull lever F" and so on. And that was just to snap the ball! :shock:
    Maybe if i had my own i could figure it out, if i spent several days on it.
    I wish they had "push button A to pass, B to run" type games. Not all the fancy stuff that makes it so hard to play.

    I try and buy the odd years of Madden games. I don't see the point in upgrading every year. Besides, I hate really hate playing Madden. I mean, I love football and I love video games but I get so enraged in Madden because the most ridiculous preposterous impossible bullshit happens. I mean, why when I'm down by a touchdown with a minute left in the fourth quarter does my kick returner fumble? Of all luck...I remember games like NBA Jam and Wayne Gretzky 3D Hockey that actually allowed you to make a comeback. I'm dead serious too. I played ESPN2k5 and then bought Madden '07 because I wanted an upgrade. Besides the graphics I felt like I was playing a downgraded version of Madden '03 ugh...

    the fumble at the 3 minute mark doesnt look like a fumble to me. this happened a lot in 08 that you couldnt challenge.

    I like the play selection screen more than the rest of that stuff. That and celebrations! whooo! But it sucks that I play with GB cuz I can't have Jennings and Driver celebrate like boobs. Maybe Donald Lee though.

    Ha Ha, but if you own the current Madden, the Interface is much nicer, the field looks way more realistic, the crowd takes snapshots just like in a real game, camera bobbles when a player is out in the open. Those are just some of the things I noticed when watching the vid. BTW the whole Packers team did the Soulja Boy dance a couple of times.

    I love that game! All you have to do is play as the Cowboys (as hard as that is to do) and do a sweep with Emmit Smith, spin the whole time you run, and you'll dominate. The Packers are pretty worthless on that game, though.
