  1. By far the best Madden game to date and it features the best update to any game of its kind.
  2. As good as Madden 2004 is, I distinctly remember playing this game before. Twice actually. I know there isn’t a ton that can be changed, and I know that the console versions don’t change much, but there can be something done here I’m sure.
  3. There are a number of things that EA Sports could have improved upon from the previous game, but this series is still far and away the best for anyone looking for a traditional football game on Nintendo's popular handheld.
  4. The brighter colors means that, even if you weren't lucky or financially stable enough to pick up a GBA SP, you'll still be able to see the game pretty clearly.

    Yes, the game is still fun. Yes, the game will please fans of the classic old-school Madden. But keeping the game nearly identical every year isn't going to get you any new fans. Let's freshen it up for next year, hmm?
  6. Updated rosters and the always-entertaining create-a-player are all welcome in this installment of Madden on the GBA. Unfortunately, there just isn't enough here to warrant another purchase if you already have last year’s game.
  7. It's slightly tweaked and certainly a good game but so were the previous ones. Unless this is your first Madden football game then don't bother.

    The game is nice and pretty realistic. Even the lions suck in the game and their usually good in games!

    THis game's gameplay sis the best in all of the football games, BUt if you are a real madden gamer as i am there are a whole lot of THis game's gameplay sis the best in all of the football games, BUt if you are a real madden gamer as i am there are a whole lot of things that need to fixed. ! the pursuit on defense the players do not move when the qb scrambles or when the running back runs, 2 computer Bias in the 3rd and wth quarter when the cpu has the ball it ratings go up and are better and makes it easier fir the comp to come back in the 4th.3 Blitz schemes when u BLitz in this game it makes u go to the blocker, what i mean is that when u have a strait open shot at the qb the game makes u run at either at a linemen or a runningback.

    Madden '04 for the GBA is a mess. The players look terrible and there is too much commotion on the screen all at once. Looks more like Madden '04 for the GBA is a mess. The players look terrible and there is too much commotion on the screen all at once. Looks more like Pacman on steriods than a football game. Worst game I have ever played. Instantly traded it in.
