One of the unsung additions to Madden (and NCAA).
We've always loved this feature and we were excited to see it included way back in Madden 08. It allows you to play the plays you want and simulate those you don't. You get an ESPN gameday type screen like that above and you can jump in and out of the game whenever you want. It's great for a group of friends who want to play co-op defense (or at least it was) in an attempt to recreate the Monsters of the Midway; and it's nice to see you no longer have to muck around on O or D if that's not your preference.
This is also a great work-around for anybody who only likes playing as their create-a-player yet doesn't want to suffer through some of the limitations, constant benchings or horrendous camera angles of Superstar mode.
