Macworld's Game Room has posted a new review of Madden NFL 08, EA's Ciderized version of the popular football simulation. The game offers the wealth of options fans of the series have come to expect. The Game Room gave Madden NFL 08 a score of 4 out of 5 mice.

From the review:

The game features a sharp user interface and a soundtrack of popular music hits. It’s all the production value you’d expect from the glitz and glamour that today’s NFL seems to demand. You have the whole roster of NFL teams, stadiums and players to choose from, and you can play current or historic teams. You can also create your own teams, players, and even populate the stadiums with custom fans if you’d like, using built-in tools.

Once you’re on the field, you have a few different options as to how you’ll control the game. If you have a game controller you can use it; if you prefer to use the mouse and keyboard (or just the keyboard), that’s your choice as well. Playing on my MacBook Pro, I opted for the keyboard route, as the mouse method rather extensively utilized right-clicking, which is awkward to do with the Apple trackpad, and I didn’t feel like using an external mouse.

Gameplay itself is fast and furious. You have an extensive playbook of built-in plays to call from (you also have options there if you want to build your own playbook of favorites), and once you’re on the field playing either offense or defense, you’ll be able to control key players during each play to try to make a difference.
