Summary: This is the first Madden game I have purchased. I have heard a lot of hype about how great this game is and I finally decided to give it a try. Well, after playing this game, it is hype & that's it. This game is an average football game at best. Don't get me wrong, it is a fun game to play, but this game is unbelievably unrealistic. For example, whenever you get close enough to sack the QB, he will throw the ball away (intentional grounding is what it is called).
Summary: After playing this game online for several weeks I haved noticed that the same flaws as in all previous verisons remain. Playaction passes don't work as your QB is hit instantly and cannot take one step. Outside running plays do not work at all as you have no blocking and your RBs are hit for a 2-3 yard loss each time.
Summary: I'm well aware this review won't be popular with most committed fans, but I'll post it anyway. 2 years later, and I still prefer 2k5 to my newer Madden game. I used to love Madden back on the Genesis and SNES, it was revolutionary at the time and a complete blast to play, a quantum leap forward from what was already a fun game in 'Tecmo Bowl'. Between Madden and their NHL games, EA was doing quality work. Now, they are just lazy and unmotivated.
Summary: I find this game to be very indepth when it comes to the ability to change formations and plays just by what you see. However, my major disappointment comes from the graphics. I understand the ps2 doesn't not have the standards of the XBox360, but this was false advertising showing this very detailed game and not showing which system this ran for.
Summary: I got 2007 this past Saturday. After I put the game in, I noticed that there is hardly any change at all from last year's game graphic wise, features, rosters, still no player introductions for the starters, no pre-game report on any players or the teams, come on the game needs some improvements!
Summary: Here we go again, another August, another new Madden release with marginal updates and modifications. Why am I constantly buying this game every year, if they don't want to enhance the few key things that the consumers are demanding every year??? Why Why Why??? Well, I'm sure everyone is aware of this, but EA sports has created a monopoly with the Madden series, buy buying exclusive rights to the NFL and licensing.
