    Click here for the entire thing, but here's my favorite part:

    Madden Moments are another new addition to this year's game and while it may not be a focal point, it is something that fans will appreciate. Basically the feature is just a collection of great games that ended in a loss from each team's season from last year and it's up to you to change history. You'll see things like the playoff loss for Indy or the Super Bowl for the Patriots. It's small, but it's a cool addition.

    ----------------------------------------------

    I can re-do Favre's final pass! Instead of an interception, he hits one of the other 3 wide open players! Packers win! They go on to win the superbowl!

    Honestly EA needs to improve, this new "Mode" means nothing if they release a broken game. EA needs to prove they can make a complete game without 3-man line glitches and insufferable nano-blitzes. EA is in every gamers dog house and if they can deliver a non-broken game all these features would not be necessary. I like the looks of Madden 09 but it looks like they took the same crappy engine, upgrade the textures, slapped a new field with footprints for snow, and added people flashing cameras in the stands. I did not see 1 new tackle, not 1 new play or catch, but I did see 1 fumble that wasn't a fumble. The game needs much work to do and I agree with you Trom that this feature will be really cool, but EA has a lot more to worry about than extra game modes.

    Also, the camera flashes look more like sparkles and fade away slowly, however it is a cool concept, they need to fix that.

    Can't wait for this. I normally get Madden games on computer but it's not gonna be on PC this year. Just got a PS3 so I'll get it on that.

    Another year, another slew of gimmicky features that adds little to core gameplay.

    It's kinda funny... I have Madden '08, but I never actually play it. I just set up the Packers against a random opponent, let the computer control both teams and kick back and watch the game.

    OK. Maybe that's more sad than funny...

    Do you get that bored?

    You're aware the internet has pornography, right?
