    Madden Football 2006 is a good game. There are good graphics and interesting new options like NFL Superstar. The problem is that now that they are the only game in town they are slipping. The new passing mode is more annoying then fun, and the fun level is dropping little by little in this series.

    Madden NFL 06 is a great game. With the new quarterback vision and the new story modes its awesome!

  1. For the first time in years, the game has been redesigned which completely alters the gameplay at its core. Tiburon appears not to be satisfied with just creating an entertaining representation of video football but to advance the realism so that the experience brings players that much closer to what it feels like being on the gridiron. They've succeeded.
  2. Luckily, you have the option to turn the new passing system off, but if you do—what valid new additions separate 06 from the rest? Almost nothing. It’s looking like the lack of competition is a bad thing, but who knows?
  3. A great football game. But so was "Madden 2005," and besides precision passing and QB vision, there is no big reason for casual fans to absolutely lay down 50 bucks for the same game with different lineups.
