THE GOOD: - Create a Team, Player, Playbook, Fan. - Graphics - Franchise Mode - EA Sports Bio - Hit Stick - Endless Fun
THE BAD: - Not Much
SUMMARY: This is a great game. Definitly better than last year. You can create a player to be anything you want and put him on any team you want. You can have a totally customized team. You can have created players, fans, playbooks and teams. You can create a stadium for your team also. You can have your own created playbooks for both defense and offence. This makes the game more fun. Then in franchise mode you can have your team replace a current team and then you can be a real NFL team. Franchise mode goes way deeper this year. You run the team. You can make trades, release players, sign players. You can even set the price of consessions in your stadium. You control everything. You can switch the Depth charts to get certain players to actually get some time on the field. The graphics this year are very good. EA Sports Bio is in Madden 20...
SUMMARY: "Ikaruga is one of those games that comes along, kicks incomprehensible amounts of ass, but nobody notices because everyone's too busy playing dog shit football games. I don't get it: they re-package the same shitty football games every year, update a few stats, call it a new game and millions of suckers keep buying them. What's the point? Why not just go outside and play real football instead? Or even better yet, get bent. Nobody likes football."
Ever since Grand Theft Auto III came out, the position of videogames in pop culture has gone up tremendously. Games are about to topple movies as the leading form of entertainment. Filmmaker Uwe Boll has made several (absoultely terrible) game-based movies. What was once seen as a geeky hobby has now becomes one of the coolest things you can do.
This, in my opinion, is a terrible development. One of the best advantages to being a game geek was that it got you as far away fro...
THE GOOD: -graphics are nice -controls flow smoothly -"hitstick" is available -can create teams, players, playbooks, and fans -the rosters are mostly accurate -online feature -franchise well put together (Storlyine Central for example -the mini-games are challenging but yet fun -historic teams are available upon purchasing the card
SUMMARY: Madden 2005 obviously surpasses all of the last Madden NFL games. Yes, it is $50 which doesn't compare to ESPN NFL 2005's $20 budget, but the games differ greatly. For one, EA Games has bought to rights for all sports games, so ESPN games and other sports' names will be gone in the 2006 campaign.
But to the game. Madden 2005 presented a great visual factor. The graphics are astounding. The players look so real as do the stadiums and the rest of the environments.
To the gameplay. The controls flow so smooth while playing the game. The "hitstick" manuever is available, as it delivers a blow with enough force to create a fumble. It is easy to move to one positio...
SUMMARY: If you enjoy watching some form of football or another, or just like the sports genre in general, Madden 2005 is absolutely necessary to make your playstation collection complete.
Like every previous installment in the Madden series, the main gameplay has you out on the field controlling your favorite players and transforming that crappy team into a feared dynasty. Make trades, sign free agents, release old geezers, upgrade your player's stats in training camp, and make all the other moves you need to create that All-star team.
New to 2005 is the hit stick. Pushing the right analog stick towards the ball carrier will make the defensive player you're controlling make an extremely hard tackle, increasing the chances of a fumble. Of course, high risk always comes along with high reward. It's very easy to miss a tackle when using the hit stick, so just make su...
THE GOOD: Has a deep franchise mode Graphics look great The player ratings are the best in any football game ever. Hit Stick is a great feature Collectors Edition available that I recommend for everyone (but you must buy it used by now) Ability to draft real college players with NCAA Football 2005
THE BAD: The offense / defense balance is a year out of date the running game is not as strong as in Madden 04 The stats in Franchise mode just don't seem right (QBs rarely throw for 4000 yards), but it has the most realistic stats of any Madden game The Franchise Mode doesn't let you set the league rules or (if you run the whole league) decide to make games be fixed
SUMMARY: Madden is one of those games that almost everyone has played at some point or another. This version is the best Madden ever and also the best football game ever. All the modes that are standard in Madden are in this version. That means that you can play a game against a friend, the computer or somebody on the Internet. You can...
THE GOOD: I think that madden is a good game because you know have more to do in season mode. There are more training camps. Like know you can use the receiver.
THE BAD: I think this game is bad because you cant turn the season salary cap off in less it asks if you wont to. The throw back teams are mest up like there numbers arnt even the real numbers for EX. for the MN Vik. team there QB. Cunningham is like number 10 When his real number is 7 when he played.
SUMMARY: I thinke this game is an ok game. I give it a thumbs up and a thumbs down. It has exalent graphics but the franches isnt the greates. The throw back teams numberas are mest up. I think for the next madden they should hav the numbers right from at least 1980-2006 madden. Then more poeple will like the game. For franchis mode they should have poeple with drug prolems. When you are creating players you should be able to pick if the have drug problems from a rating to 1-10 or somthing. You should also make it if you make your p...
THE BAD: HAHAHH! Im a ESPN boy and ESPN NFL will drop Madden like it's hot i mean Why would you wonna sell hotdog's. This is Football people. AND what is up with Ray lewis lookin like he's runnin' to the toilet. We as in the ESPN people have TO. ESPN cost $20. UHH.. guess who tried to copy off ESPN... Madden droppin prices to what... 39.99 is just like ESPN drooping thier prices to $20 (the rest on the summary)...
SUMMARY: like i was saying EA copies off of us ESPN people of the price drop. What is that ? DO I hear Sporscenter? Does madden have sports center? NOP! This is war! you have umm traning camp we have the weekly peparation where you can train your ENTIRE SPUAD OF ONE POSITION. if a player get injured, you could him on rehab to speed up the process of the healing. Im soory im giving a Reveiw to ESPN to all you madden sucka's' out there. Does madden do that or did it copy from ESPN again?
THE GOOD: -Fast and Responsive gameplay -Innovative Franchise mode -Customizable Soundtracks(Xbox only) -Hit Stick
THE BAD: -Weak presentation
SUMMARY: I absolutely love this game it is great. First of all the gameplay is extremely fun. It is fast unlike the clunky gameplay of ESPN NFL 2K5. The Franchise modes has alot of great innovations like the Tony Bruno show and the newspapers. Those little things just make it a better overall expirience. The Hit Stick gameplay control is awesome for defense. There really is no better feeling than running into Eli Manning with Ray Lewis on the Hit Stick. Also the passing is much more accurate than on ESPN NFL 2K5. If you like football this is the game to get. During the menu you can have custom soundtracks for the Xbox. This is by far the best football game this year pick it up NOW.
