Summary: When I ordered this (same and cover) from the XBOX version, but when I put it in the XBOX 360 it was not the same. Again, I couldn't get my money back because it had been opened.BOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
Summary: I can't even believe it. Madden 06 for XBOX 360 sucks. The graphics is the only best thing. I can't even challenge a TD catch when the computer was obviously out of bounds. I'm going to keep it, but for anyone out there that's planning on buying this game DON'T. Wait until Madden 07 comes out.
Summary: There are lot of "unfortunates" in this situation... 1) It's unfortunate that i just got my 360 and this is the first game i played 2) It's unfortunate that my bank account had to lose an additional $60 b/c i thought that the game would at least be comprable to ESPN's X-box version being that they assisted with graphics in this Madden game 3) It's unfortunate that the game doesn't even have the simple things like.. "CHALLENGING A CALL!!!
Summary: the graphics are pretty good but the gameplay was not good at all. it actually seemed like a step back from madden 05. a couple fun things that were taken out were the training camp and the ability to challenge calls. after playing a couple of games in a season this game got old and i havnt played it since. the only time i would pull madden 06 out is if friends were over. that really is the only value of this game.
Summary: There is something wrong when I buy an XBOX 360 and I have to go play my old madden 2006 on the old XBOX to get a quality game. Other than the graphics this game sucks majorly.... a huge step backwards. The players move slower, you can't change individual defensive assignments, no challenges, the offensive line movement doesnt even seem like the lines moves at all, you have to relearn what every button does on the controller, (Why would they change what almost every...
Summary: If the gameplay was as detailed as the PS2 version, this game would have rocked. The graphics are superior. They really dropped the ball of gamming options....some of the key things missing was no Superstar mode. You can't build and devolpe you own player for a career. No challenge of plays. I am sure there are several other things missing, after playing it about 4 or 5 times, I quit playing because it was no fun. I hope the 2007 edition will be better.

Summary: Madden NFL has been around for quite a while, and has built up an incredible reputation. The XBox 360 launch release has great graphics - but a few flaws. Let's start with the great parts. We have a high definition TV and the graphics were just gorgeous. You can see the details of the face, the definition of the muscles, the details of the uniforms. The stadiums have signs in them promoting the home team. That being said, we noticed some issues with graphics right away.
Summary: This version of Madden is average...and that is being generous. There is no commentary from Madden or Al Michaels, and the best EA could do is offer some ridiculous radio announcer to do play by play. Not to mention, this is not a "run" friendly kinda game. Terrible game for such a fantastic game console. Save your money and wait till Madden 07 comes out.
EA only gives you 1/2 the game (for the full price)

Summary: It looks like a clear case of rushing a game to the stores even though it isn't finished. They simply dropped whole chunks of the game that are standard on other platforms. They also favored looks over play. I don't know about the rest of you, but if I want a cool, realistic looking game, I'll WATCH the NFL. If I have a controller in my hand, I want a game that PLAYS well. This one is lacking. I was particularly disappointed in the lack of a player draft.
Summary: This is one of my all-time biggest disappointments. Say goodbye to everything you liked about Madden. They axed a ton of features that seperated this game from all the other football games. Online play has suffered, the fantasy draft is no more, you can't even challenge plays! Graphically, it looks amazing but that's the only improvement. It honestly feels like you're playing a demo and you're denied access to all the functions that make the game worth buying.
