EA ’s Madden NFL 09 Demo
Available Now on Xbox LIVE and PSN
Come Experience the First Sports
Game that Adapts to You
The 20th anniversary of Madden NFL
football is less than two weeks away! Gamers can check out Madden NFL 09, the
first sports game that adapts to you, with the Madden NFL 09 demo that is now
available on Xbox Live and Playstation Network. Players can try out the new
Virtual Trainer mode, which allows users to customize the difficulty and
gameplay settings, as well as preview the new Madden Moments game mode.
At the start of the demo, players
can get a sneak peak of the new Virtual Trainer mode as they are immediately
dropped into the Madden Test – used to assess a players Madden IQ. Throughout
the game, a player’s Madden IQ is constantly updated and adjusted, as are the
difficulty and play settings which are based on the Madden IQ. The Madden Test
consists of four core game play mechanics: Passing, Rushing, Pass Defense, and
Madden Moments allows gamers to
replay a team’s key moment from the 2007 NFL season. In the demo, the Giants
Super Bowl-winning drive is the featured Madden Moment. Players will take over
the reins of Eli Manning and the Giants with about two minutes to go and attempt
to score and walk away with the NFL championship.
Madden NFL 09 is scheduled for
release on August 12 and introduces over 85 new features and enhancements.
Madden NFL 09 also includes a brand-new broadcast presentation package featuring
Cris Collinsworth and Tom Hammond, online leagues, and the most realistic
graphics in franchise history.
