After over 20 years, the Madden NFL series is still going strong and this year we see another entry into the franchise for the 2009/2010 season.
But how well does the game perform at attracting new audiences, while still living up to the high expectation sitting on its shoulders by long-term fans of the series?
Old-school American football fans rejoice! Recently, EA Sports announced the ‘AFL Legacy Pack’ which is coming soon to Madden NFL 10.
