  • Summary: For 16 years, Madden NFL football has been the definitive gridiron video game experience. Here's the next one for your portable buddy.

  1. The game is fully featured for tremendous long term value, and the online components put it over the top in terms of true dollar value for your gaming experience.
  2. Perhaps the most annoying quirk about the visual presentation is the loading which is a bit too frequent.
  3. Put simply, Madden 2006 for PSP is the first real - as in fully featured and legitimate - portable football game. [Dec 2005, p.114]

    This is the greatest handheld American football game available and fans of the game are likely to be very impressed with the game.
  5. Pass defense is more realistic, and the balance smooths out at higher difficulty settings, but pounding the run is still unrealistically easy.
  6. This is one for the fans, since the complicated gameplay and ultra detailed stats make it intimidating for nonenthusiasts. It's a quality game, but it may test your easy-going nature. [PSW]
  7. What you have here is a competent, playable, fun football game pretty much ruined by game-killing bugs, freezes, flaws, and debacles.
