Madden NFL 2004

The good:

-once you pop, you can't stop
-realistic enough, not street.
-good graphics
-make your own plays

The bad:

-ummmmm, there's a bad???

Summary:

This is an exellent sports game. I own both fever and madden football games for my xbox and I think they are both exellent games (NFL Fever needs to get Manning off the cover though, it's ruining the game man!). People are going to remember the Madden football game name for years to come, and if they don't, then they are probably getting coloring books for X-mas for the rest of their lives. The soundtrack, the graphics, the gameplay, the weapons all come together in one exellent football game soup. As redemption already mentioned, some people say this game is too short, but a football g...

Best Sports Game Ever

The good:

-innovative playmaker control
-deep franchise mode
-great graphics
-owner mode is the best
-fun game play

The bad:

-no online play
-no names on the historic teams

Summary:

This is the pinnacle in sports games and well the Madden series has been for the past 3 years.This year there is no shortage of new features to quench your desire for a great football game. The new playmaker control is amazing you can change which way a running play is going and alter a reciever's route at the line of scrimmage. The franchise mode is as in depth as always, but this year the new owner mode is digital gold. I have spent countless hours playing in owner mode. What is it? You may ask, well I will tell you what it is. This makes you control every aspect of your team including th...

Another Year of Madden Domination

The good:

Playmaker Controls. Owner Mode. Franchise Mode. Crisp graphics. Player animations are top-notch.

The bad:

Madden's Commentary.

Summary:

This game is so amazing. If you like football and own a PS2, you had better get Madden '04. Madden '04 is possibly the best Madden game to date. For starters, the graphics have improved a hella lot. Stadiums are colorful and not dull. Madden '04 houses some of the best player-animations as well. There's hundreds of different tackling animations, so you just won't see a guy fall down. Owner mode is awesome, too. It lets you take control of your favorite team. You can hire the right staff, set concession prices, or even relocate your team. There's so many things to do in '04, you'll be playin...

They have outdone themselves!

The good:

Graphics get better every year. Build stadium feature, control all aspects of the game from ticket prices to relocating your team.

The bad:

Sometimes the announcers say the wrong position, or yardage. Freezes occasionally mid-game.

Summary:

If you like any of the EA sports titles, this is the one to have. All of the magazines rat this game in the high 90's which is amazing! Player holdouts make this game so realistic, they have all the same features as last year but a ton more. Smarter AI makes this game a little more realistic. Playing on the highest level is a little crazy. The CPU always intercepts and you can't do anything. The player who likes a challenge will have his hands full. You now have the ability to change players name and features.

Relocation teams that aren't doing well is a blast. The detail that goes into thi...

Madden at its Best

The good:

The graphics are still improving, the in-game movements are smoothing out more, and the realism keeps making you feel more like you actually ARE "in the game." I was especially impressed with the Create-a-Stadium, Mini-Camp, and Owner modes. Also, they added the 46-Bear defense, which, beign a Bear fan, I appriciate. Also, the uniform alternates are all up-to-date.

The bad:

Still a few bugs in the graphics, such as hands going through people, but it's getting better each year. Also, the screen tends to shake when too many players get into one part of the screen. Then there's the deduction of the All-Madden team in Franchise, and the still inability to retire numbers.

Summary:

All-in-all, this is an EXCELLENT game. The best football simulation out there by far, if you go for realism and strategy. I love it.

Madden 2004

The good:

Gameplay and the playmaker option have really set high standards for football games.
I can play this game for 5 hours without getting bored.
It has so many types of games like mini camp 2 minute drill ,tournament, franchise, ect....
The thingiwas impressed with was franchise

The bad:

The comentary gets boring, but i dont know if that would really bug u

Summary:

The franchise mode was awsome, You configured prices on eveything from adverticing to food to souvineers, You could fire your staff and other coaches, you can sign free agents and extend deals.
There was also an option for fantasy draft, That was awsome making your own team and making them the best.

Now mini camp was awsome all the drills and game situation winning madden cheat cards and player cardsits pretty nice.

If you are looking at buying this game and the espn one i would go with both, espn has the first person mode but it is not all great, Madden would be a better pick
