The world's most reliable and relied-upon American Football videogame is back and, certain people say, better than ever for 2007 in the shape of Madden NFL 2008. Never one to shy away from updates and tweaks for its games, EA has surely surpassed itself this time around. Yes, there's a football game behind and beyond the EA Sports glitz, but goodness, the developer has really thrown its lot in with this iteration. Let's have a closer look at what's in store... There's an all-new 'Read and React' system which enables you to scan the field and identify individual strengths and weaknesses before every play. You can play to your team's strengths by immediately seeing what your opponent has planned and you can react as soon as the ball is snapped. Improved player intelligence provides more authentic gameplay on both sides of the ball, and you can stay on the field after every game to work on specific aspects of your game in Skill Drills mode. There's also a new Fantasy Challenge mode, in which you can apply your knowledge of the game to draft a dream football team, and go for elite superstars to add to your roster of key players. All-new player moves, including auto-motion and low-hitting tackles, plus ultra-smooth gameplay provide the most realistic NFL gaming experience ever.
