    EA Sports has developed a game for both the adrenaline-addicted Mountain Dew set and the brainiacs who care more about crafting the perfect playbook than actually calling plays. [Nov 2003, p.98]
  4. From the detail graphics, excellent controls, and outstanding owner’s mode everyone should find something to enjoy with this game.

    Easily the best Madden game yet, but be prepared to buy a Logitech Dual Action controller. [Nov 2003, p.130]
  6. Because of its tight game-play, depth and dizzying amount of features, Madden is still the one to beat.

    Sadly, the one thing that's fairly consistent is the opposing AI's late-game heroics. [Dec 2003, p.114]
