Summary: "Ikaruga is one of those games that comes along, kicks incomprehensible amounts of ass, but nobody notices because everyone's too busy playing idiotic football games. I don't get it: they re-package the same damn football games every year, update a few stats, call it a new game and millions of suckers keep buying them. What's the point? Why not just go outside and play real football instead? Or even better yet, get bent. Nobody likes football.
Summary: My title says it all really, this is the most backward sport ever created. It is so boring, throw it, catch it move forward a few yards, drop it, start again and every 30 seconds the clock stops and some t**t with only the very basics of the english language swaps the players round. If you want to watch a real sport watch the world cup in germany later this year along with the rest of the world.
Summary: Madden has added so much crap over the years that the game is no longer any fun to play. The passing thing is the worst. EA Sports has ruined fotball video games for everyone by buying the exclusive license rights and then subjecting the public to such a crappy game.
Summary: i loved playing the madden series untill i tired 2k5. i made a huge mistake in 05' by buying madden 05' and not 2k5. madden has the same damn gameplay every year..nothing about this game changes!. play the madden games from ps1 and then ps2 and you'll see there's no friggin' difference at all. ea just can't make any good realsitic sprots games anymore (even fifa isn't the great game it once was). i always fell into the trap of buying ea sports but not anymore..
Summary: I was playing Madden 2002 and thought it was time to upgrade, i'm so sorry I did. I won't repeat what everyone has said about the horrible new QB system, but I found a number of other features very annoying--and absent. Why can't we turn off the annoying salary cap? If we want to make a super-team, let us. After all we paid way to much for this game already.
Summary: I've never liked the Madden series and I used to not like the 2k Series. I was stuck playin NFL Fever on Xbox. Then when that got bought out, I went to ESPN and fell in love with the 2k5 Version. Then EA sports did something that flat out should be illegal. Isnt that a monopoly or whatever? ESPN 2k5 will be the game I continue to play until EAs contract runs out. ESPN is smoother, more realistic, and just quite frankly a more fun game to play.
Summary: Madden 2006 has one major major flaw, which is QB vision. It is nearly impossible to pass to different recievers while in the pocket or on the run and/or get off quick passes on blitzs etc. Poorly thoughtout operations and too many buttons to press. When you disable this mode in non-online play there is still a spot light that shows where the pass is intended to be, which ruins the fun of playing since it gives your defense an idea where the ball will be.
Summary: I waited on-line at midnight to get this Madden. I tweaked the rosters, adjusted the players' numbers, then started playing. The best thing one can say about the QB Vision control is that you can immediately turn it off. Too bad every time on defense you have to watch the computer use it.
$50 for new rosters, 'The Sims' superstar mode, and annoying QB vision

Summary: My recommendation is to NOT buy this. It is NOT worth $50! It appears that EA spent most of it's time developing this 'Superstar' mode, where you play the game solely as a player vs. as a team. I don't like it. If I wanted to play The Sims, I'd buy the Sims. As far as the franchise goes, no improvements at all really.
