I just got Madden... I haven't played it on 10.4, but it DOES NOT work for me on 10.5. The game starts and when it reaches the menu there is no text around the menu... All the text is off the screen somewhere. It probably has something to do with the resolution settings but you cant see any of the options in madden because of the problem so it is hopeless. I haven't seen anything on the internet about it other than this... I hope they release something soon to fix it.

Have you had any problems like this with 10.4?

Mine is the same now on Leopard. On 10.4.10 it worked fine. Now menu and selections are off and unusable. But if you expect support from EA don't hold your breath. From hearing about Tiger Golf and there problems ours might be a while....

Update; I submitted a ticket to EA and the response follows (Similar to EA Response to Tiger Woods)

Hello William,

Currently, we are in correspondence with Apple regarding the graphical errors you are experiencing with Madden NFL 08 for the Mac. We are aware of the issue and we are working with Apple to repair this problem as this is affecting other Mac users as well. This error stems from an ATI card driver issue which will need to be patched by Apple in a system update.

Thanks for posting that, merc. I am in the exact same boat. I read all of the reviews on apple.com about it not working in Tiger, but for me it worked fine. There were a few quirks (online didn't work) but it looked great, and played great.

Now after upgrading to Leopard it appears to have the same issue that others reported in Tiger (and you reported). For some reason Leopard broke it, hopefully EA is right and that Apple is working on some type of patch right now. It would be nice to be able to play it again soon.
