Madden 2008 sucks. I am posting this on my blog that has 20K+ subscribers (Seattle Sports Blog.com) along with posting this on Amazon and other game review sites. Make some changes EA Sports since all you seem to do to enhance games year over year is ad more coorporate logos to your games.
Oh, I can’t wait until 2010 when the NFL opens up the rights again for real video game makers such as NFL 2K to come back into the swing of things in the NFL video game arena. I hadn’t bought a Madden game since 2006 and I’m kicking myself for selling it. The main reason for my gripe? If it’s not broke EA, don’t fix it. The game play is horrible on the new game and the difference between Pro and All-pro is a joke. You either have 30 TD’s in a season or 30 INT’s with average QB’s on All-pro. The biggest problem? The amount of ADVERTISING EA is allowing into games these days. Kickoff sponsored by Snickers? Halftime sponsored by Sprint? HOW LAME!!!!! Hey, EA, just because your stock is in the toilet doesn’t need to sell yourself out to your board members and keep pushing these lame advertisements into video games. Spend your money on your website or forums and QUIT allowing ads everywhere on video games. It’s lame and the general public is getting annoyed with it. How about allowing a user to TURN OFF ADVERTISING DURING THE GAME?????????
