Summary: It's a shame MADDEN cannot duplicate this for the ps3.... the only thing better on the ps3 madden's are the graphics. The 2005 Madden is the last one that lets you create playbooks and use them in franchise mode. AND it doesn't have the stupid QB vision crap. SMooth gameplay and never gets old. The only thing that sucks is that I have to go and update every single roster with the actual rosters for the 2010 season.. it doesn't take that long and is well worth it!
Summary: For the past few years I have been playing Sega's (now ESPN)series of football games and just loved them. This year, I got Sega's offering, that was dirt cheap and it was OK. I'm not into the "crib" scene, but gameplay was great like in previous years. I saw a promo for getting a discount on a wireless remote when you bought Madden 2005 when it came out and went for it. After getting used to the differences, I have become addicted.
Summary: I bought this game the day it came out, and i have been playing it since. That is no understatement. In fact my EA Sports Bio says i have played madden over 28 days... The most amazing improvement i have found in my time playing is definitely the defensive changes. Now you can audible individual people to do almost anything you want them to. Double team, blitz, QB spy, etc.
Summary: Shame on all the people who said this was the same game as '04 with different rosters. I wouldn't have minded, anyway, '04 was and is still a great game. But Madden has improved it in some areas drastically. The graphics, I'm dissapointed to say, are no better. The players are blocky and unrealistically muscular.

Summary: I've been playing this year's version of Madden nonstop for about two months now and indeed it is a very great game. Everyone already knows this. But this review is for me to rant my dislikes of the game. Although the defense has been completely revamped sometimes it seems as if the game is cheating. Let me explain...the linebackers in this game are among the greatest ever.
