Summary: The reason I give it a 9 is because so far, it's still the best. Yes Madden 08-11 have the best graphics and developing more realism. But because like NCAA 2005, the franchise mode was perfected, but only during the 2005 series. For instance, they had voice commentary and awesome newspaper articles. Every week you could see how your team did...If your key player did the best he would probably be on the cover of the newspaper.
Summary: This game really is brilliant! I've found that I really like controlling the defence on this game - there are a range of useful options which can make it easier to stop you opponent from scoring. I also feel that the designers have ensured that there is a more even balance between the strength of the offence and defence. This makes the game far more realistic.
Summary: I've been playing Madden since the first edition in 1992, when 'digital speech' was an amazing concept in a video game. Things have moved on slightly since then, but the gameplay remains constant to every series there has been (we'll i bought '99 and '01 on the PS1 and assume the others are accurate). The new features are very good-the hit stick is immense if you want to flatten someone or try and get a fumble.
Summary: I have been playing Madden for 10 years on various platforms, Mega Drive, PS1 and Xbox and am a HUGE fan of both American Football and the Madden Games. No surprise then that I bought this on the day of it's release with much anticipation, after just a few minutes of play however my heart sank with great disappointment.
Summary: Like other Madded fans I was itching to get my hands on EA's new masterpiece, however I must report I have already returned it in disgust, why is there no X-Box live support? There is also far too many long loading screens, and as usual for EA games, an annoying soundtrack which should immediately be turned off. I like some of these bands, but after hearing a track 47 times you ain't gonna like it no more.
Summary: You have probably heard that ea sports and xbox live have resovled the differences and came together. If you are looking for xbox live with this game forget about it. If you got earlier versions of game, no need to buy this one. I had preordered game based on US reviews.
Summary: This game is the best of it's type u get to pick any of ur fav teams and do a franchise with them and when u ar playing the game u will notice that there is more animations n plays if u create ur own team u get to choose everything, u choose the stadium and what it looks like and of course the strip
Summary: Ive pre-ordered this and if its anything like the others, it will be awsome. This is the first ive had on the xbox but i'm sure it wont be that different from the ps2. The reason i bought it on xbox is, multiplayer is loads of fun. Either on the same team on against each other. A must buy for american football fans. Dont buy any other!!!!
