    With the new features added to this game such as precision passing and the 24/7 mode this game is easily the best madden yet and deserves a 10.

    I played both the gamecube and ps2 versions in a store, and the gamecube version looked and felt a good deal better. The passing cone didn't change the game as much as I thought it would. The game still has the same familiar feel to it.

    A great game of football to play with your friends, Superstar mode seems unrealistic, but overall a good buy.

  1. Recent releases have seen plenty of tweaks, but they merely nudged the gameplay. This year's implementation of a quarterback's cone of vision really changes things by rethinking the foundations of passing the ball.

    Once again, EA and Madden manage to do the impossible: They made us fall head-over-cleats in love with this frigging game all over again.
  3. Madden NFL 06 is still an outstanding game, but EA needs to re-think the reality and practicality of its Superstar mode, and it has plenty of work to do to make QB Vision both effective and enjoyable.
