Coming out as the best game of 2005, 2K5 is no joke. Being a better game than Madden(in my opinion), you obviously cant argue with the price difference. In this game the players look real and the catches are real, and the players are real, and....everything looks real! In franchise mode you can now train players how you want to train them. They can watch film, scrimmage,train aerobically and lift weights, and train your players in a dozen other ways. The game commentary is great but a little repetitive. The only reason you should buy Madden is if you cant live without those updated rosters. If you like football games, buy this game!!!
