Madden NFL 08
In the Fantasy Challenge mode, defeat the NFC Hall
of Fame, AFC Hall of Fame, Dummies, Glaciers, Deceivers, and Tridents
teams. Once defeated, they will be unlocked in Play Now mode.
Mega Man 5.
Hint: Always have first pick in draft:
Start a franchise with the trade deadline off. Sim
or play the season to Week 17. Find out which team has the worst
record. Trade your first draft pick for their first pick and they
will always accept. Note: You can also do this with second through
seventh draft picks as well.
Hint: Fantasy Challenge mode:
Make sure you have all the desired players from that
league on your team before the last game (championship). You will
not be able to get the players if you win the championship because
you will move on to the next league.
Hint: Fantasy Challenge mode: Unlocking
To unlock NFC Hall of Fame, AFC Hall of Fame, Dummies,
Glaciers, Deceivers, and Tridents, you must defeat them in Fantasy
Challenge mode. They will be under the last league, called the
Supreme League. Once they are beaten you will be able to play
with them in Play Now mode. The easiest way to beat the Supreme
teams is to change the difficulty to Rookie or Pro. Another way
to unlock the Hall Of Fame teams is to buy their Madden cards,
which appear randomly when you buy cards for 100 tokens.
Hint: Fantasy Challenge: Recommended players:
In Fantasy Challenge mode, two very good and cheap
players are Mike Alstott (FB) and Antrell Rolle (CB). Rolle has
great catching. It is almost a guaranteed interception in every
game that he plays. You should get the cheapest players at every
position then save it. Go to "Rosters" under "Features"
at the main menu and increase your players to a 99 overall. Doing
this will make your team cheap and outstanding. Also, no one will
be able to negotiate your players away.
Hint: Franchise mode: Recommended players:
When playing in Franchise mode, visit the Free Agent
screen. Sign a free agent names Jordan Beck. He is a middle linebacker
71 overall. Change his position to defensive end and he will be
90 overall. The same thing works for a lot of the other linebackers
when changed to defensive end. Also, you can change Ladainian
Tomlinson's position to linebacker. Do this, then trade for him.
He will have an F trade rating and his team will accept almost
any player in a trade. When signed release him then resign him
to save cap room. Then, change his position back to running back.
He will be 99 again. This can be done for lots of other players.
In Franchise mode, take any quarterback in the league (Peyton
Manning is the highest overall). When you go to the roster and
select them, and go to edit the player. Change his position to
a WR. He will have a 30 overall (if you selected Manning), and
you can trade any pick or player for him.
Go to the "Trade" screen in "Roster Management".
Go to your favorite team then trade for very young players in
every position. Edit them to the best stats and go to Franchise
for a very good team.
Hint: Superstar mode: Start your Superstar
with 99 in ratings:
Go into the Superstar Hall Of Fame and select a player
based on which position you would like to play through, appearance,
etc. At this point you are not selecting them, but you know which
player to alter. Go into Roster mode, then to the players' team
and begin alteration. You can change all the characteristics that
let you highlight them as usual. Once you have changed the appearance,
etc. go to ratings and adjust them as desired. Go back into Superstar
mode and the player you modified will be at the top (if you made
them with perfect ratings).
Go to the rosters. Look for a player that is a rookie at your
position. Alter that player as desired (appearance, build, etc.),
then change the ratings to suit your taste. If needed, trade that
player to your favorite team. When leaving rosters the game will
save. Then, start Superstar mode and choose "Rookie from
07 class". Be aware that this player's ratings will apply
to other game modes. Select your player and continue.
Hint: Superstar mode: Get drafted by anyone:
When getting drafted you will be asked if you want
to be drafted by your favorite team. At the menu screen at the
start of the game, select no favorite team. You will then get
drafted by whomever.
Hint: Superstar mode: Playbooks:
In Superstar mode, when you practice, you will be learning
your team's default playbook with default audibles and not the
one you desired on your profile. For example, if your Superstar
HB's team is the Dallas Cowboys, but your desired offensive playbook
is the New England Patriots, you will be stuck with your team's
playbook. The main problem with this is when you are a defender
learning in a 4-3 team when you are more comfortable with the
3-4 (or vice versa). Kickers and punters are mostly unaffected
because they only have to punt and kick field goals, and those
do not change in any playbook.
Glitch: Rams announcement:
Play as the St. Louis Rams in Play Now or Franchise
mode. Al Michaels will sometimes get it wrong and say that the
team is from San Diego. However he never gets it wrong for the
Glitch: Super-sized Thurman Thomas:
Thurman Thomas was a true AFC Legend for the Bills,
but in the AFC Hall of Fame team, he was listed over 6'2"
and over 300 pounds with a 76 on his back, which is much taller
and far heavier than what he is (5'10" at 206 pounds). There
are many AFC and NFC Hall-of Famers that have their heights, weights,
and shirt numbers incorrectly displayed, but you cannot do anything
about them. Any teams and players unlockable in Fantasy Challenge
mode cannot be edited.
Glitch: Madden cover emails:
In Superstar mode, the email from Year 2 onwards is
all about the Madden cover during the off-season. It does not
matter how good or bad your career is; the email from the agent
(no matter who) always states that "You didn't get the cover".
However before your fourth season starts, you will receive the
same letter despite the fact that Dexter emailed you and expressed
how excited he is to see you made it onto the cover. He will also
make a painting, signifying that you have made it there.
