  • Summary: This game is a blast and if you have NCAA 2005 you can export a class and take your heisman all star and make him into the NFL MVP.

It's been a long time.

  • Summary: I bought this game while I was in the Navy stationed in Japan. I've never really been a Madden fan, but decided to buy it because I've heard good things about the Madden series. I tried the game out and actually enjoyed it. Especially the historic teams. Definatly an addition to any Madden fans collection.

Best football game yet, but with some drawbacks

P. Val "Peter", Amazon

  • Summary: This game definately has the most realistic gameplay i've seen yet. However there are certain plays that you can run and always gain alot of yardage. I have scored well over 100 points on All-Madden mode with just 5 minute quarters. For passing, basically if you have a receiever whose speed and accel are good, you simply run up and out routes (on a diagnal) and throw it and you will almost always get the catch.

The best tried a little too hard this year.

  • Summary: I've been playing Madden for almost a decade now, and it seems to get better every year. I follow the real season every week in franchise mode and usually have a good time (if the Steelers win). It's hard to not have high expectations with this franchise, especially when you've purchased the latest version every year. This year has been a bit tough. First off, let me establish that I have no interest in the financial side of football.

GOOD GAME BUT....

Jason Perdue "Ninerfreak", Amazon
26 September 2004
  • Summary: OK i'm gonna sound picky here and i think theres enough reviews already on this game but i wanted to post one anyhow. This is Madden and it goes without saying that it's fun and in depth. The gameplay and graphics are as always,very good. This year,Ea and Madden attempted to make the franchise mode more in depth and 'extravagent' than before. They do this with the newspapers on the teams,Tony Bruno talking during his radio show and so forth.

Ricky Williams ruined it

J. A. Morales Jr. "jose_el_nino", Amazon
20 August 2004
  • Summary: This is an awesome game. Not a surprise I know. I love the option of letting the players battle for the starting job. I also love the fact that players choose what team they sign with based on not only money, but prestige and etc. The one thing I do wish I could do is update the roster. Unfortunately Ricky Williams retired, Quincy Carter was cut, and Deion Sanders may return, but it doesnt reflect on the game.

Still Great Madden Quality

Matt Williams, Amazon
19 August 2004
  • Summary: This game definately has its high points, especially all the audible calls at the line of scrimmage. You now can dictate anything you want any player to do on defense with the playmaker function. For instance, if you come out in a man-to-man passing formation you can tell your safeties and cornerbacks to align themselfs with their players that they are covering and to either give them room or play them close.

User Profile Issues

Steve Henry, Amazon
18 August 2004
  • Summary: I bought the Collectors Edition Madden 2005 and my buddies bought the regular Madden 2005. Well, I go to my buddies house to drop the whoopin on him and lo and behold? My memory card shows to files on it? After my befuddlement subsided, I found that THE USER PROFILES ARE NOT COMPATIBLE! The bottom line? If you own the collectors edition you cannot import your profile into regular Madden 2005 and vice-versa.

Franchise Fun

Kris, Amazon
16 August 2004
  • Summary: I have been a Madden Fan since the Sega Genesis days and after buying this year's release, I still am. The last Madden I played was 2003 but never touched 2004 b/c I heard there wasn't much of difference. I mainly bought this game for the updated rosters and updated Franchise Mode. The new storyline portion, player morale, and in-depth offseason makes this game quite fun. The game play seems better and more realistic.

Different this year, but still good

Patrick A Reeves, Amazon
16 August 2004
  • Summary: From Madden 2003 to Madden 2004 I felt like very little changed, and in 2004 we got Franchise Mode. That was fun with all its bells and whistles, but for those of us who only buy one game a year, and play it anxiously for 12 months and awaiting the next installment, it truly only provided for about 9 months worth of fun. So here I was awaiting 2005. With all its bells and whistles, and claims of a better defense, I was excited.
