Great package, great value, deeply flawed gameplay

Summary: I'm not giving this a lower rating because I'm a Madden fanboy, like some people. I don't even like Madden. Looking back, I hate what EA did to football games. For years they coasted on their overrated series, knowing they didn't have to try hard with it because no other company was able to make a...
Summary: I played this game for Xbox about a year after if came out, and I absolutely loved it. I recently got back into watching football, and I was reminiscing about 2K5. Unfortunately I lost my copy of it, so I ordered one for the PS2.
we need to sue ea for dishonesty, false advertisement, and theft

Summary: It sucks that I cant even play a decent football game in this day and age. Only good gm out is ncaa; Madden developers please stop playing games and messing with customers. You wonder why apple, mccdonalds, honda are some of the best companies ever they put alot of time in their work and strive to...
Summary: Hands down best football video game series there was! This game still plays as smooth and enjoyably on a PS2 in the face of nextgen systems (spite of being a 128 bit age console). Update the rosters each year and never give into the monopoly ever again!
Summary: It is quite a shame that EA bought the rights to the NFL, because 2K made a much better football game than Madden. 2K mainly focused on the tackling, catching, blocking, running, etc...rather than graphics. That's what I loved about it.
Summary: This is a 5 year late review. I played all the Maddens from 2001 to 2006. I heard some people talking about how good 2k5 is so I bought 2k5 after I bought Madden '06. I put it in my PS2 and said huh? This game was only $20 bucks? I forgot all about Madden '06.
Summary: This is a must own game for any sports video game player. If you don't have a ps2. This game can be played on a ps3 depending on what your ps3 model number is. Check sony.com to find out if you have compatibility. To keep this game updated to today's NFL rosters. Go to nfl2k5rosters.com.
Summary: This had to been on the the greatest games that I've ever played. With Madden now losing it's luster, I had to go back to this game. The graphics, gameplay, presentation, everything about this game was terrific and it still is to this day.
Believe the hype -- better than Madden, 3 years later

Summary: This is the best football game out there today, and it isn't even "next-gen." Graphically it might be the best thing on PS2, second to God of War 2. The commentary, once you get accustomed to the change, is INFINITELY better than Madden (ol' Papa Madden has been making me want to shoot myself in the...
Best ridicufied, absolute best football game ever,ever, made on PS2

Summary: Talk about replay value? Can you believe 3 years later Im still able to play this game? I had it since its release date and it doesnt crash or anything. It looks close to the Madden on 360, UNBELIEVABLE EA, you just shot yourself in the foot every year after Mike Vick was on the cover.
