EA Sports' blockbuster football series is back with Madden NFL 08. Focusing on 'weapons,' in game events, and features from previous titles, Madden NFL 08 offers gamers another chance to create a dream season alone or in multiplayer competitions. The 'weapons' concept returns, and gamers can now locate dangerous players by reading weekly scouting reports, watching player introductions, and by using trigger buttons before the snap on the field. There are a total of 24 different 'weapons' and they include big hitters, defensive linemen, running backs, and catch receivers. Each 'weapon' has a counter-weapon that gamers must uncover in order to bring a potentially destructive competitor down. However, by completing the mini-games in 'Franchise' or 'Owner' mode, players can alter the attributes for each team member.
