  1. To say that Madden 2004 is challenging would be a massive understatement. It has an uncanny ability to leave you shouting at the screen when your opponents seemingly know what you are going to do even before you do it.

    It's a good game, but the graphics is lagging behind the rest.

    Madden. The Big Daddy of football video games. Pretty good game in general, just lacking perfection. EA needs to work on these Goddamn bugs. Madden. The Big Daddy of football video games. Pretty good game in general, just lacking perfection. EA needs to work on these Goddamn bugs. Examples: While attempting to deflect a pass, my corne's hands often passes RIGHT THROUGH the ball. Also, while attempting field goals, the long snapper's ass like...gets thinner, then bigger. It's quite annoying. This games strong point has got to be Franchise Mode. Especially since you can actually improve your players in Training Camp. I think the Hot Route thing is overrated just a tad. I don't use it that often. Great game, EA just has some work to do for '05. Full Review »
