Madden 10 is from the 2008-2009 football season with Troy Polamalu and Larry Fitzgerald on the cover. New features include Pre-Play menus, a Point and Pass mechanic, an All-Play (preprogrammed) Defense for beginners, and a slow motion Spotlight Moment feature for key plays. As well, up to four players can compete in the Madden Showdown, a quick series of programmable games, or Road to the Superbowl, which is an entire NFL season. Another feature, Huddle-Up allows two players to combine against a stronger player.
