August 12, 2008 - Excellent - Even with the listed complaints, this is a football game that one-ups the stakes between the sidelines, and it's so visually impressive that it's likely to stick in your system all season long -- even on Saturdays.

August 11, 2008 - Excellent - Madden NFL 09 actually reinvents the series with upgrades to previous modes as well as the introduction of new ones like Madden IQ, Online Leagues, and Madden Moments.
September 25, 2008 - Good - Madden NFL 09 offers just enough to fans to warrant a purchase. Although meager, the new additions do help the game feel like it's worth the price of admission.
August 12, 2008 - Good - Enjoyable on field play, combined with all those modes, makes [Madden NFL 09] one of this year's best sports games and must buy for anyone excited about the upcoming NFL season.
August 11, 2008 - Good - Newcomers will still face a steep learning curve, but if you're a football fan or series veteran, you can't go wrong with Madden 09.
August 12, 2008 - Good - The core game is a lot of fun, though, warts and all.
August 12, 2008 - Good - Without a doubt, Madden 09 is still a day-one purchase for gridiron junkies. We'll happily play all season long, during which we'll invent a thousand more reasons to love and hate it all at the same time.
August 14, 2008 - Good - There's a whole lot of game here, but that was true last year, and for every gameplay improvement there's something annoying to dampen the enthusiasm. It's still an excellent football game, but the casual player is going to like it a lot more than the grizzled vet.
August 12, 2008 - Good - Madden NFL 09 is the most loyal translation of America's favorite sport I've ever seen. It looks great, plays great, and despite its few moments of inaccuracies, is still one of the best sports games in memory.
