Madden 09 to feature user-controlled celebrations
Even though the NFL has turned into the "No Fun League" and has pretty much banished all sorts of fun celebrations from professional football, the Madden franchise will finally be letting its users enjoy this new feature.
New for the 2009 version of the game, gamers will be able to control their favorite players to a timely end zone celebration. The days of crossing your fingers and hoping your player will celebrate after a touchdown are history as you will now be in control.
Just a simple push of the "celebrate" button will allow your player to spring into action. If that player happens to be known for his elaborate celebrations (i.e. Terrell Owens, Chad Johnson), then he'll perform some of those that you've seen him do in real life.
The different celebrations will also be dependent on the area of the end zone your player is; for example if your player were to catch a TD over the middle of the end zone by the field goal post, he might go up for a dunk over the goal post. Specific stadiums will even feature their own local celebrations, immediately jumping out is the "Lambeau Leap."
And if you just humiliated your opponent with a great play for a TD and hope to rub it in just a little bit more? Then why not have the ability to steal your opponent's celebration (immediately T.O. mocking Ray Lewis comes to mind), well kiddos that too will be making into this year's game.
Even though Madden 2009 is still some time from its release, fans know it’s never too early to talk football and especially never too early to talk Madden. Stay tuned for the latest updates as they come along.
