Summary: My son collects older versions of Madden football. I purchased this game and the disc never worked in my son's ps2. Very surprised as this is the first product I purchased since I started using Amazon.com that didn't work
Summary: Madden's NFL game allows us to live out a fantasy of directing a team on the field even if the promise is greater than the delivery. You get to personally see why your plan might or might not succeed, and for that reason many will love this game.
Summary: I am taking my time to write a honest review about this game. If you are those kind of people who like games who resemble the real life then this game is not for you. The NEGATIVES (which are more then the positives by the way). * IN real life when teams are on offense most of the time DEFENSES get tired. Well, in madden 2005 and 2006 that is not the case, if your offense is on the field most of the time your offense gets tired and their defense gets stronger.

Summary: I admit it, I have something of an ulterior motive in rating this game so low. It's a good football game, really it is. However, after playing EA Sports titles for the past decade, I've discovered a football game I like much better. Unfortunately, because of EA and the NFL's greed, exclusive rights to NFL licensed products has been granted...meaning we will not get an ESPN NFL 2K6 game. Hence, I will no longer be playing EA titles.
Summary: sort of dull. this is just like madden 2004 on offense but the defense is a little better. its not worth $30 but its worth about 20 dollars. personally, i like 2k5 nfl better but its all a matter of taste.
Summary: OK SO EA IMPROVES THE MADDEN SERIES BY 10% EVERY YEAR AND PEOPLE ACTUALLY BUY THE NEW GAME EVERY YEAR. WHY?? JUST BUY LAST YEARS FOR A COUPLE OF DOLLARS INSTEAD OF BUYING A NEW EDITION EVERY YEAR. FOR EXAMPLE, THIS GAME IS ACTUALLY SO DULL I PLAYED FOR ABOUT 3 DAYS AND SOLD IT. DO NOT BUY THIS GAME. WHAT A WASTE OF CASH. MY IMPRESSION IS THAT ITS TOO STERILE...IF THAT IS REALISTIC THEN WELL, THATS OK.
Summary: Dont get me wrong by the rating, i love Madden. I am currently on my third copy of 2005. never before have i seen a game relesed with such poor programing. This game has so many faults and frezzes so much i have started playing 2004 again.... i might just have the worst luck in the world but it is just a warning... the game itself when it works is very good...
