Эта часть достигла вершины, которую по состоянию на 2012 год серия не превзошла, отчасти из-за отсутствия конкуренции. Геймплей одновременно реалистичный и более приятный, чем в текущих версиях Madden, а игра продемонстрировала уровень инноваций, намного опередивший свое время. Если учесть отличный режим владельца, это становится игрой с замечательной ценностью повторного прохождения. На сегодняшний день это лучшая игра Madden.
Madden 2004 deserves the title of being the most iconic game of the franchise & was released during the franchise's peak. The cover athlete Mike Vick is one of the most OP sports game characters of all time & would be a great pick if someone is doing a fantasy draft of sports game characters.
The introduction of Owner Mode changed the game forever by allowing the player change the prices of Tickets, Concessions, Merchandise, Parking, & Advertising depending on how well the user's controlled team is doing in Franchise mode. Mini-Camp is great game mode & is the best way to learn the basics of the game. I also like the tiny fact that in Mini-Camp the players wear practice jerseys instead of wearing full game day uniforms. Create-a-Team is one of the best game modes where you choose whatever colors & logos you like. You can even create your own custom stadium with your created team while choosing what you want your team's uniform to look like.
The Playmaker Control is one of the best one-and-done features ever where you can flip a run play, change the primary receiver's route on a passing play, change safeties coverage, & determining a defensive blitz or deep pass after the ball is snapped.
This isn't the GOAT of the Franchise but it deserves the title of being the most iconic of the Franchise.
The game introduces the two best new features found in football games since the Franchise mode, as Owner mode would be a fun game on its own, and Playmaker control is simply the most useful new gameplay tool introduced into the mix in many a year.
Perhaps one of the more interesting modes is the Owner mode that exists as a kind of parallel universe with the Franchise mode. It would make a good game by itself although the focus is on business and not on football gameplay.
With all the new franchise options Madden 2004 is a definite must for anyone who likes to get into the nitty-gritty of the game, but otherwise you might be better of waiting for the rather nifty-looking "NFL Street." Overall though, this is the best American football game you can get.
Incredible game. Back when Madden had competition and couldn't rest on their laurels. They actually cared. Michael Vick is Tecmo Bowl Bo Jackson levels of broken. 99 speed on a QB lol. Deep franchise mode, the complete football game
A peak that as of 2012 the series has yet to reach. (blame that on the lack of comptish.) The gameplay is realistic and much more fun than the current versions of Madden, and the game was well ahead of its time. Throw in the excellent owner mode and you have a game with incredible replay value. The best Madden there ever has been.
Unpopular opinion, Madden 04 isn't the best PS2 Madden. That's Madden 08 btw. While 04 is fun to play, and has a lot of features that are missing from Madden 21, it's just not as good as some of the other Maddens on Ps2. Its still a great game, and has Create a fan, create a team, and create a play.
Summary[Metacritic's 2003 Playstation 2 Game of the Year] Key Features for 2004 include New Playmaker Control - Make pre-snap adjustments to your receiver routes, direct receiver routes during a scramble, direct blocking down field during a run, or read and react to the offense to deliver a crushing tackle; New Owner Mode - Hire your own staff,...
