Madden NFL 08 Reviewed

A new review of Madden NFL 2008 is now available from MacNN. The game is the latest in the popular football simulation series, now available on Intel Macs courtesy of Transgaming's Cider emulation software. MacNN gave the game a score of 4 out of 5 stars.

From the review:

Madden NFL 08 has a memorable soundtrack, offering a mix of rock, rap, and R&B tracks. The tracks were not jarring or obtrusive, and I found myself tapping my feet on more than one occasion. Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 08 had disappointed me with its bland, uneventful soundtrack, so it was good to hear that EA has not lost its touch with game music.

In addition to EA game's normal Create a Player option, Madden NFL 08 allows you to create a fan, team, or playbook, which adds personality to the game. The Create a Fan option intrigued me. Sadly, this revealed the first glitch: The fan's entire body had a reflective shader texture, so he looked covered in plastic wrap. This also appeared in the Create a Player mode, but did not reproduce itself in any other area.

I created a player and a few fans of which my favorite was one with a big foam finger, a massive beer gut, a team logo painted on his front. The game then asked me to identify my favorite team and set it as the default first player team for all games. My football knowledge is not very current and Bo Jackson is the latest player I could name off the top of my head, so I was a little lost as to which team to choose. Pirates are always fun, so I went with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
