Summary: I like to play this game in "coach mode" since I take a more analytic apprach to football. But when Rich Gannon suffers an astounding 27 sacks against the panthers, one has to wonder just how realistic this game is.
Summary: It has been a while since I've played a video football game, and I bought this for X-Box. I was completely blown away. The graphics, owner mode, challenging plays, playmaker, creating playbooks, its just endless what you can do with this game. The only thing that I would change are the crowds.
Summary: as far as the gameplay goes nothing has really changed in that the computer still gains 430 total yards despite only managing 6 plays of consequence (typically three passing plays of 45, 75 and your everyday 90 yarder on 3rd and 27, with three running plays of 30, 70 and 80).
Summary: Madden 2004 is a great game for beginner gamers. But if you are experienced in choosing the plays and making it happen, you want total control. There are a couple of things that i found dissapointing in this game.

Summary: Just when I thought Madden was in danger of being dethroned by Sega Espn Football franchise they offer their 2004 title. This game is so deep, the new owner mode though is what really makes it.
Summary: If you are a fan of Madden football, this is a good game. The main upgrade for this year is the fact that you can really get into controlling the team as the owner, and you can relocate if you have the funds. If you like the GM side of the game, you will love this game.
With so many great features, 04 stills lurks with bad ones.

Summary: With the newly added Playmaker Control, NEW Owner Mode, and in-season camp, Madden 2004 is still a classic in all football games today. In great need Playmaker Control allows you to re-direct a sweep into the opposite direction before you make the snap. (Instead of wasting time on an Audible).
