One of EA Sports best franchise for the last 20 years, Madden NFL 08 is available on the Mac for the mac game fan. Apple.com has a really nice review of this game on their article / blog section for games.

Some highlights from the review:

“From Al Michaels’ play-by-play and John Madden’s color commentary to realistically-rendered players, coaches, and stadiums to a strict adherence to NFL rules, Madden NFL 08 Mac lives up to that idea. In fact, it’s the only place you can turn for a realistic digital football experience, thanks to the game’s exclusive use of NFL and NFL Players Association licenses. All 32 NFL franchises are represented here, along with key historical teams, NFL Europe clubs, and even a few fictional ones thrown in for fun.”

New features in Madden NFL 08

Major noteable new feature in Madden NFL 08 Mac are: “the ability to control the lead blocker or a wide receiver during a play, instead of starting in the shoes of the quarterback; Hit Stick 2.0, an enhanced version of a previous feature that lets you deliver more precise tackles on defense; and skill drills that help you sharpen your passing, rushing, and defense skills, along with your ability to adjust plays at the line of scrimmage.”

“In addition, teams now possess Player Weapons. Many players at all positions feature icons that, for example, differentiate between scrambling quarterbacks, those with incredible arm strength, and the ones with precision passing skills.”

One thing though I have not seen Madden NFL 09 available for Mac yet.

  1. This game looks soo detailed, I can’t wait to get it.

    I hope they have improved over last years passing system, which was a little clitchy :(
