Summary: This is the last time I buy Madden for the Xbox. Every year the programmers make numerous errors. Last year Eric Johnson of the Raiders had the picture of the Johnson on the 49ers. This year several of the Raiders have the wrong position and you are unable to change the players position even in francise mode. Since when has Tyler Brayton played linebacker even in the Raiders new 3-4 defense he still plays defensive end.
Summary: I bought Madden 04 and I loved it, primarily due to the incredible new owner mode, but this year there's a new football champ and his name is ESPN 2K5. This game is amazing and it's only 20 bucks! Save yourself 30 bucks and go with the game that won best of show awards @ E3. Sorry EA sports, you lose! game over.
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.
