Ali pads up and takes on Madden NFL 08 for the Xbox 360
Another year and another Madden, Ali picks up the Xbox 360 version for a review and gives us his impressions on this year’s NFL title.
“It’s the Superbowl, only a few seconds left. The coach has called his last timeout, and your team is 4th and goal with along five points between loss and the coveted title. The quarterback takes the ball at the snap and looks across his offensive-line, a linebacker as burst through and is heading towards him at pace. At the last second he spots a receiver open, he tosses the ball as the linebacker flattens him. The crowd goes silent, flash bulbs from cameras supernova as the ball sails into the hands of the receiver winning the game. That feeling is what Madden ’08 is all about. Unfortunately, since EA got the exclusive NFL license for Madden ’06, that magic had been lost and we were all left wanting more in a next-gen gridiron simulation. Thankfully it looks like Tiburion have managed to recapture the awesomeness that was Madden ’05, although it isn’t exactly very progressive.”
