Conclusion: I won't lie when I got the idea to review Madden NFL 2006 and 2007 before the newest Madden came out I got excited, my gamer score was going to go up big time. My friends might give me a hard time about it, but they are just jealous, plus I did this for reviewing purposes. How can you give me a hard time about it? Oh wait I think I mainly talked about my achievement point journey.
Excerpt: When EA attained the exclusive rights to the NFL license, they were (and still are being) heavily criticized everywhere you looked. The main fear was that EA would stop innovating and release a new Madden each year that was only minimally better than the last. Now that Madden NFL 06 is out, did that fear become a reality? Read on to find out. Graphics: There are few significant enhancements graphically, but you can't quite fault the developers for that.
Excerpt: Every year, EA and Tiburon’s Madden franchise looks surprisingly better and better. The graphics always seem to be at the top of their game and the animations that accompany the players have again improved with new moves that are very fluid. The little things that make a game gorgeous are included as well, like the changing sky and lighting that accompanies the time of day. All of these things combined are what make games like Madden NFL 06 at the top of their league.
Excerpt: Every year Madden comes back with a fresh new take on the sport and every year we're treated with an innovation of some sort that enhances the football experience. For the most part, this trend has continued throughout the years, hence why Madden is a million seller despite stiff competition from the NFL 2K series and its bargain price (which ceases to exist now thanks to EA's acquisition of the NFL license).
Excerpt: If you've played Madden for any length of time, you know to not expect any great changes from year to year. New features will be added, money plays will be fixed, and graphics will be tweaked, but the basic formula stays the same. This year, however, a few additions shake things up a little more than usual. The biggest and most controversial change is QB vision control. It's essentially a highlighted area that spreads like a cone away from the quarterback.
Summary: Madden NFL 06 is yet another very solid addition to the franchise. The new additions are welcome, while the lack of online gameplay in PAL territories sucks. Still this is the best, and now only NFL title on the market and its well worth a purchase.
