Madden 09 is one of the greatest games in sports video game history. The development of the game has been amazing. They have created a game with the most amazing graphics in the world, features like you have never seen before and the most enjoyable game in stores. The hit stick feature is my personal favorite. When you are playing as the linebacker or any defensive position and come across the player with the ball, if you use the right joystick to tackle the player, it becomes a super hit and can cause a fumble many times. Another great feature is the online gameing part. Players can play anyone in the entire world and there is even a lobby where you can find the best players, worst players or even a friend if he/she is playing the game at the same time. Overall, Madden 09 is absolutly amazing. It continues the madden series with extreme effectiveness and if you buy it then you will be addicted within minutes.
