Gamers irate over NFL Madden 2008 Glitches

If you have played Madden much lately, you know exactly why EA bought the exclusive NFL license, because they couldnt keep up with the competition. Well now since they have the license they dont even bother fixing the bugs in the game, and this year your franchise will lock up after a few years. EA doesnt give a damn, but the NFL will if EA tarnishes their image, and Madden 2008 definitely does... once people learn to associate "NFL" with "unpolished software" the NFL will take notice and not allow EA to ruin video game football for another 5 years. This article is a start... let people know what the EA is doing to NFL football video games. :-t

Agreed. Competition makes quality better. I can't count the number of times my d-lineman lined up backwards or my coverage completely erred and allowed a huge play to what should've been a short gain.

I don't play Madden 08 as much as I used to play 06 and 07, but the blame for this lies on the shoulders of the NFL. They're the ones who sold the exclusive rights license.
The cake is a lie.

Everyone out there since the exclusivity started happening has been playing the Madden games with the mindset that no matter what they were going to hate it. Its the same thing this year, I've played this game about 100 hours at least so far and find nothing so horrible as to cause me not to want to play it. People just want to gripe and complain and thats all there is to it. If you really liked the 2k games better you are crazy, they were slow and sluggish and boring....and first person football?? LOL what a joke...

I've bought madden since madden '04 and I can say that '08 is the last Madden game I'll ever buy. I thought '04 (Vick) was the best game. Superstar mode has been a huge let down and the franchise hasn't changed too much since '04 anyway.

I hate 08 with a passion. I have been buying them since the Eddie George cover, and have not really had anything to complain about, but this game is horrible. 07 was my favorite one, and that one is exponentially better than 08. I loved playing that game, I think I played through 4 franchise seasons the first month I had it it was so good.

I'm not going to elaborate on every thing I hate about the game, but hopefully these two vids will clarify why I haven't touched the game in 3 weeks.

Video 1. This "fumble" occurred during the first minute of the third quarter of a game. I had all three timeouts, so there was absolutely no reason why I should not have been able challenge this play. However, I go to the menu, and I can not challenge it. What a bunch of BS. His knee is down, the ball is in his hand, and then he rolls over and the ball squirts out. Oh BTW the same player fumbled the ball on another similar play; 20+ yard pass that put me past the 50. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KuV6tfPJWso

Video 2. This was originally called an incompletion, which is the correct call, because: 1. the WR stepped foot out of bounds, rendering him unable to catch it in the first place. 2. after coming down with it, neither feet come down anywhere near the line. 3. the defender did not touch him, so he was not forced out of bounds. Obviously, his momentum brought him out. This call was then challenged by the booth, and the play was overturned. They then called it a completion %-6 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dCEOHx8Q04Y

Did you try playing franchise? Did you try turning off weapons and then trying to play online? These things dont even work.

This is why I stopped playing Madden and picked up All Pro Football 2K8! The game play is so much better and since I am a dolphins fan I love playing with Dan Marino and handing it off to Tony Nathan, playing defense with John Offerdahl and Nick Buoniconti.

If you guys havn't played it yet, you should pick it up. You can get it brand new for $30.
