    If you're a fan of the Madden series, you'll still probably get enjoyment out of this year's version, but like me, you'l

    Madden's graphics remain a bit above average, but perhaps because it's catering to the consoles, it's just not that impressive anymore, and I think the days when I used to consider Madden to have abou...

    It's the same as 2004, just a few extra features for the professional control jockeys....

    The graphics, as usual are fantastic, and there are some environment enhancements over 2004 (if a late game, as the game goes on, the sun goes down, etc.). The ambient sound has been improved, and the...

    Excellent game! What more do you want?

    Rated on September 16, 2004 by xelalex24

    I played this game non stop since it came out. Barely got any sleep. Took a day off of work. Locked the wife and kids in the basement. (Ok, I'm just kidding about my last remark.) This game is exce...

    Lousy - Just loaded on new AMD 4200, ASUS MB, 1 GB Ram, 7800 GT, and it locks in franchise. No help yet from EA Sports!

    Rated on January 06, 2006 by mcamn7

    Initially I enjoyed this game very much, the franchise in particular, but now that I have built an AMD system and attempted to transfer my franchise to it the game just freezes. I can't even create a...

    My custom team!

    Rated on September 30, 2004 by smorbrod

    The game looks and plays a little better than 2004 in my opinion, things like create-a-fan and the radio features are nice but nothing spectacular. What is missing is the ability to take my custom ma...

    My custom team is GONE -- years of play wasted! Go with ESPN!

    Rated on October 11, 2004 by AudbuAL

    The only thing worse about a development team removing a beloved feature is them doing it and then fibbing about the reason. The EA website says the custom team removal from franchise mode was because...

    If you're a football fan, you'll love this.

    Rated on February 21, 2007 by cowboydb59

    Okay, it's your basic Madden game, nothing more, nothing less. A few new features were added that year, but really there was no distinct way to tell it apart from '04 or '06. But what in the heck i...

    Rated on November 19, 2004 by dobbs3x

    O.K. this is a review on the PC version on Madden 2005. This will be a simple yet imformative review of the game. First the game plays just like the Playstation version especially if using a gam...

    It's not a sports game, it's an RPG with a sports theme; the only RPG I enjoy for that matter.

    I have long been a fan of Madden games. Since Madden 96 on the Super nintendo I have enjoyed the greatness of the gameplay. I am also a huge football buff so that probably adds to something as well. E...
