The Madden series makes its ninth appearance on PlayStation 2 with an assortment of updated features and enhancements. Although the graphics engine is essentially the same as the previous version's, you'll be able to guide your favorite NFL team using new plays and formations, such as the wildcat. In addition to updated rosters and playbooks, the game offers such visual embellishments as the camera shaking during big hits and frenzied crowd cheers. A new fumble system turns the frantic jostling for the pigskin into a button-tapping mini-game, while a custom control scheme lets you assign specific moves for each position to the analog stick. A dynamic rating system will find athletes building or losing momentum throughout the game after making (or missing) big plays. Madden NFL 10 also includes new color and play-by-play commentary from broadcasters Cris Collinsworth and Tom Hammond. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
