Summary: If you are looking for that old Madden Franchise mode, you won't find it here. Better off getting the PS2 version, maybe even an old xbox non-360 version would work better if you want the Franchise mode.

VISUAL CONCEPTS RULES! WE WANT ESPN FOOTBALL! WE WANT ESPN FOOTBALL ! WE WANT ESPN FOOTBALL!! I WANT ANOTHER FOOTBALL GAME BESIDES MADDEN! i WANT ANOTHER FOOTBALL BESIDES MADDEN !!
Summary: Since the 360 was made in the middle of madden season i guess they did an ok job on getting it out. but ya Quality in graphics, no quality in gameplay. The only reason i did not sell at gamestop for 10 dollars was because teh online gameplay is ok, but the second 07 comes out im sellin this and gettin that. 06 has about no features, no fun in franchise, and no intellectual deseign. Well hopefully 07 wil bring back the features. YOu cant edit rosters on 06 either.
Summary: I have to admit...this is the absolute worst game I've ever played for either the Xbox or Xbox 360. I have NFL Madden 2006 for my Regular Xbox and comparitavely speaking the one for regular Xbox is much better. Don't waste your time or your money on the Xbox 360 version of this game. There are a few...actually several reasons for this. Okay, so let's get past the graphics--it's an Xbox 360, the graphics WILL be stunning.
Summary: Ironic how the most visually impressive game of the Madden franchise is also the worst one of the bunch. Everything everybody is saying is true. One glaring omission: JOHN MADDEN!!!! The whole "generic announcer through an AM radio" commentary is incredibly annoying. Why didn't EA include the audio tracks from Michaels and Madden? This is a half-baked game, no question about it. Don't waste your money.
Summary: Madden 06 on the XBOX is clearly a half-baked product. I could almost accept that if game play were exceptional. The graphics are certainly improved, but compared to Madden 06 on the PC, that improvement is marginal. And the gameplay? Ugh. I won't repeat what's already been said - way too many features have been left off for this game to be acceptable and that's only the beginning of this game and the XBOX 360's problems.
