    Tiburon have added a reasonable amount of new material for the 2006 edition of Madden, but we really feel as though they could have done more.

I rather play it on the 360 even though the 360 version seems sucky it is a lot better then this version and I must admite I was surprized when they relized 07 for this system too. but that is only because 06 on the 360 stunk and they wanted money from people. just get 07 madden if you must have a xbox football madden.

The only problem i have with it is when friends come over, they dont have the time to get used to the new feature so they have to use the old one which gives them an advantage of seeing where my qb's eyes are. It makes quick games wiht friends hard to play bc i am too used to the new way but it is too complex for my friends to learn in a few minutes. Anyway i still love this game and have probably logged over 100 hours into it. I will definately get the 07 when it comes out. Full Review »

I was a dedicated Madden player for many years. But once EA decided to keep enabling online for PS and not the xbox despite the far superior XBL network I quit buying. Then I finally begrudgingly bought 2K5. What an eyeopener. There was not one thing that wasn't better than anything Madden ever had. I am certain that EA made all these exclusive rights deals so they can continue with mediocrity with no competition. There model has been for many years now make a pretty good game that catches the eye and plays nicely. Then EVERY year update a couple things add some fluff and resell it as the next years version. Even when I did play Madden I would only buy when there was actually innovation or something added that would actually justify buying the same game. EA made there name with Madden and has done nothing but crap on all its loyal fans since. EA in there present form and business practice are bad for gaming period. There is a reason why monopolies are often illegal. EA at the present time has monopolized the NFL with the exclusive rights deals so avid NFL fans/gamers will buy there product as there is no option. If they had competition EA would obviously have to try harder something there work ethic seems not to allow. Full Review »
