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, sig...
[see review]The bad:
"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." -Maddox Ever since Grand Theft Auto III came out, the position of videogames in pop culture has gone up tremendously. Games are about to to...

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 wit...
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 to...
-Very nice looking football field
-Excellent Situation and Two Miunte Drill Modes
-Iffy Player Graphics
-Stat tracking during season only tracks team stats, no individual stats
It's obviously not as good as the console Madden 2005 but on a handheld, this is as good as it's going to get. The gameplay is Madden quality and the sound is a pretty accurate rendition of football sounds. But Madden 2005 also has a bunch of problems. For one, why do they even bother with the commentary? Honestly, alot of people are going to turn off the volume after hearing John Madden say "Boom, now where did that truck come from?" for the millionth time. There's like only 5 lines of commentary. Which is a shame since the rest of the sound (players tackling etc) is pretty good. Also, the...
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 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
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 also play Franchise modes, Tournaments, running competitions, 2 minute drills and everything else you'd expect from Madden.
The create a player feature is better than ever. All the other creation modes return, as well as a new option where you can create a fan of ...
