  1. The game does lack a number of modes and gameplay tweaks that were incorporated over the years. If you can live without these modes, you’ll have a good game to showoff your new hardware with.
  2. A lot of fun to play. It did not blow me away because I was really disappointed with the lack of extras that I have come to expect from the series.
  3. The graphics are great, the new gameplay mechanics are nice, and the playcalling interface is a fantastic change.

    While the gameplay is out-of-this-world outstanding, there isn’t too much else to the game other than the basic exhibition and franchise modes.

    It is not as bad as everyone says. shure it don't have the stuff the ps2s verson has but it is just like madden 07 without the $20 dollors more for it. if you where like me and where waiting for Madden 08 to come out. and you wanted a 360 football game. you picked Madden 06 becuase it was only $10 and still was like 07.

    Absolute garbage. Eye candy YES! Gameplay NO! I hope they don't give a half of a game effort on Madden 07!

    I wish i had read these user reviews before i bought this game. This is a disgrace to the Madden franchise. instead of selling my copy on eBay, i should have paid someone to take it from me. The only thing this game focuses on is the visuals, other than that...its crap. Full Review »
