Madden NFL 2004 Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: Madden NFL 2004 is, by far, the best version of the long running video game franchise. While that can be viewed as a blessing to Madden loyalists, those gamers that haven’t been huge Madden fans since the 2001 version probably won’t find anything in 2004 to make them converts. The gameplay and graphics are primarily more of the same, with the BIG exception of the fantastic Playmaker controls and the addition of the Owner mode.

  • Conclusion: play through a season and make trades; but shouldn’t there be something else? This year, Madden faced the problem, and ultimately made the most in-depth football game ever created. The new Owner Mode, which is simply a Franchise mode on steroids, adds more depth then one could ever asked for. Inside owner mode, every aspect of your team can be modified. From cup holders to jerseys, all can be modified. Want to relocate? No problem, pick a city, and move.

Madden NFL 2004

  • Excerpt: Madden. The most successful sports video game franchise around. Over the years, this franchise has revolutionized sports video gaming. My question is, has it gotten stagnant? Every year, we know that Electronic Arts is going to give us a game that is fun to play and will offer a few new features. However, since Madden 2001 (the first one on the PS2) the game hasn't progressed as much as its competitors.

Madden NFL 2004 Review

GameSpot
13 August 2003
  • Excerpt: It's not an easy task for a development team to make enough improvements to a yearly sports game series to warrant a purchase every year. However, EA Sports has not only managed to add enough features and gameplay tweaks to make Madden NFL 2004 a more than worthy purchase for those who bought last year's game, but it has also created one of best football games to date.

  • Conclusion: Madden 2004 is a great game that is based on making as realistic a football game as possible. Everything from the playcalling to firing your lazy offensive coordinator gives you total control over how your team performs. Unless you have no friends and online capability is required, I highly recommend it.

  • Conclusion: Warum es letztendlich nicht zur einsamen Spitzenposition im Genre gereicht hat, liegt ganz klar auf der Hand. Erstens fehlt dem Spiel leider der Online-Support, den die Konkurrenz nun einmal zu bieten hat. Des weiteren ist der Titel auch technisch minimal schlechter als die Kontrahenten.
