    A solid title with good football sense and strong gameplay. [Oct 2005, p.97]
  2. The Nintendo DS version of Madden NFL 06 scores 75%.
  3. It’s just too bad that EA Sports hasn’t really stepped up the game’s minor faults from last year. Still, this one is worth the purchase price.

    People are idiotic. This game improved massively, but still fails to reach the incredibly addictive traits of its PS2 and Xbox siblings. People are idiotic. This game improved massively, but still fails to reach the incredibly addictive traits of its PS2 and Xbox siblings. (Game Informer was much too harsh, and I personally find them biased.) The game did a lot better, is all I can say. Full Review »
