Madden NFL 2005

Game Over Online
25 August 2004
  • Excerpt: Madden. One word sums up the most dominating franchise in video game history. Forget Mario, forget Sonic and to hell with Crash. The sheer scale of Madden has obliterated every other series to become the largest phenomenon the gaming world has ever seen. Don’t believe me? Take these three facts into consideration: 1.) The recent announcement of more than 1.35 million (that’s right, million) copies of Madden NFL 2005 were sold in the first week alone.

Expert Review

Game Over Online
25 August 2004
  • Excerpt: Last year’s Madden, while great, had a few balance issues that some players took exception to. Most notably was the over-emphasis towards the offensive side of the ball, which allowed for a number of rampant offenses and incredibly high scores, even on high difficulty levels. “Jetpacking,” or the quirk that let players consistently leap over defenders while making incredible catches all the time, infuriated opponents.

Madden NFL 2005

Operation Sports
11 August 2004
  • Excerpt: It’s that time of year again. NFL training camps are open, preseason games have started, and NFL titles are gracing our Xbox consoles. The first half of the 2005 NFL titles, “ESPN NFL 2K5”, shipped last month to (mostly) positive reviews. Releasing at only $20 and containing an impressive feature set, “ESPN NFL 2K5” has more or less taken the market by storm. Skeptics proclaimed the doom of the Madden franchise…that “ESPN” had finally toppled the behemoth.

Madden 2005 review

Gameplanet
21 October 2004
  • Excerpt: Madden NFL 2005 is a fantastic game which is let down by a handful of minor flaws. It remains the best single-player NFL game on the market with its excellent franchise mode and no football fan should hesitate in giving it a go.
  • Pros: Franchise mode is excellent and core gameplay is better than ever. The new Hit Stick feature adds a much-needed boost to the defensive game and the AI has been noticably improved on both sides of the field.
  • Cons: Xbox Live capability was excluded from the PAL release, leaving ESPN NFL 2K5 as the only option, once again, for online NFL fans. Graphics and sound feature only minor improvements over last year and some minor gameplay issues still exist and irritate.

  • Conclusion: Zu meckern gibt es demzufolge nicht viel. Die Grafik ist hervorragend, die Soundkulisse samt Soundtrack stimmt ebenfalls. Nervig finde ich nur, dass wertvolle Entwicklungs-Ressourcen für Schwachsinns-Features wie die Create a Fan-Option verschwendet wurden. Darüber hinaus ist die auch bereits im Review heftig kritisierte Online-Politik von EA in Europa absolut unverständlich und verwehrt dem Titel letztendlich den Vorstoß in noch höhere Wertungsregionen.

  • Excerpt: Så er endnu en NFL sæson i gang, og EA Sports markerer dette med en nyudgivelse i deres Madden NFL serie, der nu er godt i gang med dens teenageår. Havde det nu været et menneske, vi snakkede om, ville vedkommende være inde i en rivende udvikling i disse år, men er dette også tilfældet for Madden serien eller er det så som så med synlige forandringer?

  • Excerpt: Den årlige opdatering i Madden serien, Madden 2005, kommer naturligvis også til Xbox. Den er ude til både Pc og Playstation 2, så Xbox ejerne skal bestemt ikke snydes for noget af morskaben. Som sædvanligt er der ikke sket den store revolution siden sidste spil, men der er altid plads til de små finpudsninger. Bedre og mere brutalt spil… sådan kunne man opsummere de fleste af ændringerne fra Madden 2004 til Madden 2005.

  • Excerpt: Traditionen tro opdaterer Electronic Arts deres sportsserier på denne tid af året. NFL Sæsonen er lige startet, så spillet alle Zulu-elskere og NFL-fans venter på, dukker naturligvis også op så det kan lukrere på sæsonstarten. Madden NFL 2005 er præcis som man kunne forvente det – en smule forbedret her og der, men der er generelt ikke rokket ved fundamentet. “Har man spillet et Madden spil til Playstation 2, så har man spillet dem alle”.
