For 16 years, Madden NFL Football has been the definitive gridiron video game experience. With enhancements to the passing game, defensive improvements, and expanded online options, Madden NFL 06 takes you onto the field and into the locker room like never before.
For the first time in 10 years, the Madden NFL Football franchise has revolutionized its passing game—giving Madden NFL 06 the most groundbreaking and innovative offensive arsenal ever created. The new QB Vision Control lets you scan the field, look off defenders, and extend perfect throws within your unique field of vision. Formation-specific audibles and smart routes that allow receivers to extend their patterns to pick up crucial yardage have also been added to beef up the passing attack. Now you can play the game in a whole new way in NFL Superstar mode by guiding an up-and-coming collegiate All-Star to an NFL All-Pro—complete with endorsements, agents, and more. Pick apart defenses and become an NFL legend with Madden NFL 06, the only licensed and true-to-life NFL experience.

- Additional Passing Features: Formation Specific Audibles-different audibles for different situations; Smart Routes- receivers adjust their routes to pick up first downs or cross the goal line; Head Tracking-players now turn their heads when looking for the ball-no more blind catches.
