Madden NFL 09 Latest News - Xbox 360

Game Description:Superstar football player Brett Favre is on the cover, but anyone can play this year's Madden! For the first time ever, the difficulty level will be set dynamically, based on a series of holographic training exercises the player performs before taking the ball. Skills easily recalled by expert Madden players will be detected, while rookie players will get a bit more help along the way. As you progress in skill, the level will shift with you, opening more options. It even works in head-to-head matches! Improved animations make spinning out of tackles and ball-stripping a bit more fair. Plus, now you can sub in new players at the touch of a button on the play-calling screen!
