    Just because it's the only big-budget PC football game on the market is now excuse for complacency. [Dec 2004, p.79]

    Great game. Deep game. Superficially it doesn't look like alot has been added. The games start and end with the same animation Great game. Deep game. Superficially it doesn't look like alot has been added. The games start and end with the same animation sequences. Everything has been enhanced though. Player models are better than last year. Additions on the defensive side are more realistic. Blocking physics are more realistic in that the defenders can shed blocks quicker. The in-game cut scenes have been changed and enhanced to add drama to the games. Madden and Michaels roles have to be expanded and enhanced. Buy it! Full Review »
