  • Summary: With the exclusive video game license of the NFL and its players, and currently in its 17th installment, Madden NFL 07 puts you in control the running game like never before. For the first time ever, step up as the lead blocker to create a hole, and then take control of the tailback and smash through, overpower, or slash away from would-be tacklers as you fight for every yard. Innovative rushing controls give you a game-breaking ground attack featuring all-new jukes, cutbacks, and the distinct running styles of your favorite backs. [Electronic Arts] Expand

  1. It's Madden like you've never played it before and that's something we haven't said in a long time.

    It shows depth, talent, and imagination. Everything any winning team needs.
  3. A very occasional lack of realism aside, this is one of the most comprehensive yet accessible sports games ever to grace PS2. [Oct 2006, p.93]
  4. In the end, Madden NFL 07 is an improvement on the series. With some new running features and an Xbox 360 version worth the price of admission, it seems EA is trying to prove that they still care about improving their game, even without competition.
  5. The new kicking meter makes it way onto current generation, providing a ton of more control and consistency with the kicking game.
  6. Madden has been wasting away on the current hardware for a while now, and while it is still a good football game and has a lot to offer, it doesn't rise above and really blow away the previous version.
  7. There's still that nagging feeling that, certainly on a few of the defensive plays, you could put down the controller and it wouldn't make any difference to how the action panned out.

    EA Sports is ruining every franchise sports wise. Madden is one of the best examples. The best madden is about the 2003. From then on it got worst. Espn 2K5 had so much more to offer. In Madden 2012 it allowed the user to have the coach pick a play and have the user try to execute it. 2K5 had this feature and it was made more than half a decade sooner. The last madden i have ever bought was m 06. It was awful. I Broke it in half. If you have a ps2 still try 2k5. The game play is addicting. Expand
