For its second outing on PSP, Madden NFL 07 refines the action, controls, and visuals introduced in 2005 while retaining the handheld's core play modes. A new emphasis on the running game has players controlling the lead blocker and creating holes in the defensive line for the tailback to run through. Players also have the option of using the left shoulder trigger as a shift button, effectively doubling the functions associated with the face buttons to address the PSP's lack of a second analog stick.
The popular franchise mode returns with the ability to transfer a season to and from the PlayStation 2 game, allowing players to continue their team exploits away from the living room. New arcade-style mini-games have been added to the lineup, with one particular event played with the screen positioned vertically. This "end to end" contest involves running the entire field length while performing special moves to avoid tackles. Also included are a series of videos, unlockable music tracks, and historical teams to go along with the 2006 season's NFL rosters. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
