MADDEN 09

So... I was there at 12:01CST to get my copy of Madden, and I will say I am happy with it.

Has anyone else that got it started playing it? What do you think of the game so far?

I'm waiting for more than the Brett Favre/Jets roster patch; I'm waiting for the patch where Aaron Rodgers is cut and Brian Brohm is the Packers starting QB, since it's inevitable.

Re: MADDEN 09

Haven't played seriously since 2002? I'm very tempted to pick up the collector's edition though. They added a lot of features that kind of makes it worth looking at.

Re: MADDEN 09

Is there an option where you just call the plays like a coach but don't have to actually execute them yourself?

Re: MADDEN 09

That's "Head Coach". It's included in the Collector's edition or available separately down the line. No idea if it's any good though.

I haven't yet decided if I want to buy this one. I used to love the Madden games, but haven't bought the last couple after being kind of disappointed by Madden 06.

Re: MADDEN 09

I've been disappointed by Madden for years. Madden 2008 has done it in for me. That bug filled piece of garbage had a constant freezing problem that EA knew about, yet did nothing. I could never get past year 7 of franchise because of this.

I thought about getting 09 in the hopes that they would have fixed it, but from googling it looks as if it still has the same problem with freezing sometimes (not as much apparently) and others with player progression and AI running oob glitch. I will rent it when the 2nd patch comes out and see how it fairs then.

I am definitely looking forward to the Head Coach 09 though. When it is sold separately in September I'm pretty sure I am going to buy it.

If they make a CFL patch for Madden I'll buy it.

Re: MADDEN 09

Strangely, someone owns the CFL license. I kind of wish EA would just do the CFL game as a side league, like NFL Europe. Yeah, the rules are different, but it's close enough.

EA should include the CFL league in the Madden games just like they include the Finnish, Swedish, German, Czech, Russian, AHL leagues in their NHL games.

Re: MADDEN 09

The only difference is that as far as I know, the NHL games include the International Rules, so it's just a matter of doing the rosters.

I guess they don't want to implement CFL rules. I mean, the people who own the rights to a CFL game haven't done anything with it, so EA could just buy them out... but whatever.

Re: MADDEN 09

Does this Madden have an option where if you play in franchise mode (or any other I guess) that it will update your rosters "real time" according to the real NFL rosters?

Re: MADDEN 09

I think only the NBA game is doing that this year?
