Apple Games Features Madden NFL 08

Apple Games has posted a new feature, this time turning the spotlight on EA's Madden NFL 08. The Ciderized title offers players the chance to take control of their own football team and lead it to victory. Apple's feature includes comments from one of the game's producers as well as some tips and tricks for success in the game.

One of the first places we start every year is ensuring we have realistic playbooks,” notes Kiniry. “The guys here watch an unbelievable amount of game film from each team in the NFL to help create those. Fans will see a lot of the same formations and plays that their favorite teams use.”

He adds: “We’re also always looking at how players handle situations in the game. For example, if we notice a cornerback is not playing a certain route correctly, we’ll go in and make changes.”

New features in Madden NFL 08 include: the ability to control the lead blocker or a wide receiver during a play, rather than starting in the shoes of the quarterback; Hit Stick 2.0, an enhanced version of a previous feature that lets you deliver more precise tackles on defense; and skill drills that help you sharpen your passing, rushing, and defense skills, along with your ability to adjust plays at the line of scrimmage.

In addition, teams now possess Player Weapons. Many players at all positions feature icons that, for example, differentiate between scrambling quarterbacks, those with incredible arm strength, and the ones with precision passing skills.
