The largest change is the weapon system, which classifies star athletes based on the skills they exhibit in real life, like being an incredible receiver or laying serious hits on a ball carrier. This joins a re-engineered Hit Stick, Improved gang tackling and mid-air collision animations, and a stronger line of scrimmage to have a more realistic running game. Older features are returning as well, as owner mode, defensive hot routes and classic team rosters will be included. Along with the enjoyable Superstar mode and Hall of Fame athletes, Madden NFL 08 is one of those titles that could prove EA Sports' "if it's in the game, it's in the game" slogan to be true.
