20 years ago, the Madden NFL game entered the arena, bringing authentic football action and an in-depth 'by the playbook' approach to the game. In 2008, the series celebrates its 20th anniversary with Madden NFL 09: two decades of innovation bring a whole new level of wholly enjoyable and fulfilling gameplay. The legend is back with a bang.
Madden NFL 09 promises the most complete American Football package in its 20 year-long history. Whether you're new to the game, or something of a Gridiron veteran, you will enjoy a unique yet challenging experience, as Madden NFL 09 is the first sports game that adapts to you, courtesy of the innovative Adaptive Difficulty Engine, which tailors the game to match your playing style. You can improve your game with the brand new virtual Training Center (that's American for 'Centre', folks) where your players are represented in a holographic style, or get instant feedback with EA Sports BackTrack, a facility that allows you to learn from your mistakes in-game.
There's new televisual-type presentation with Cris Collinsworth and Tom Hammond commentating on the play, online leagues for up to 32 teams, and a whopping 85-plus new features and enhancements. The Total Control animation system invites you to execute plays and celebrations to surprise and no doubt bamboozle and infuriate the opposition, human or otherwise.
