    Tons of features, as well as the addition to the Madden Challenges, keep the action going and going and going well into the NFL season.
  2. Much more than just a cosmetic rehash of Madden NFL 2004. It's a complete overhaul, with better artificial intelligence, customizable skill settings, and a greater degree of control over play calling.
  3. Playing a complete season with the option to make trades, sign players and call the plays the way you see fit makes this a pretty impressive portable experience that might not be as fulfilling as the big boys version but still does a great job of representing the game.
  4. With more options, more control, better graphics and user-friendly menus, especially the playbook, there is more depth to this game than any N64 football game.
  5. This game works best as a memory of things past. [Sept 2004, p.118]
  6. In the age of the fantasy sports league craze, football fanatics with time to play their GBA during their daily on-the-go activities will want to get Maddened, especially with the addictive Season Mode.
  7. With more depth in graphics and gameplay than ever, the Madden NFL franchise for the GBA takes a giant leap toward realism in its 2005 edition. [Oct 2004, p.125]
  8. Pales in comparison to its console cousins, but it does a good job of providing NFL fans with football action on the go.
  9. The additional game modes, new game engine, and great new interface make this game so much better than last year’s.
