While Madden 10 is our favorite football game of this generation, it suffers from trying to do too much. We love the new gameplay engine (more, please!) but could’ve happily done without most of the presentation “improvements” that get more irritating with each game. We’re still waiting for our Hall of Fame experience on next-gen systems, since Madden 10 doesn’t quite reach that level.
It seems like Madden NFL 10 got a bit more attention than Madden NFL 09 as far as PS2 development goes. There certainly isn’t a bevy of new frills to entertain you, but the additions that are here help to push things forward ever so slightly. Forty dollars might be a bit much to ask, but there’s certainly enough Madden to keep you happy if the PS2 is your only option and you haven’t experience pro football in a few seasons. Otherwise I’d save the cash and spend it on a new console instead.

At a time when the focus is on the improvements and additions made exclusively on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, PS2 users can feel forgotten. Even the Wii version, as drastically different as it is, has received wholesale changes. Yet the PS2 version keeps on chugging away, doing what it's done while tweaking things as it goes. What it comes down to is this: if you're not the type who needs to "keep up with the Joneses", doesn't own a newer console nor has plans to do so anytime soon, then Madden 10 for the PS2 is a solid and respectable game that you'll undoubtedly enjoy. But if the PS3/Xbox 360 is on the horizon, hold off on Madden 10 until then; it's superior in every way and worth the twenty dollar price difference.
