5.0 out of 5 stars Not a review, just a summary of new features. June 8, 2004
Format:Video Game
As I said in the title, this is not a review. I just want to save like-minded people some time, and summarize what makes 2005 different from the 2004 title. While this isn't platform specific, the biggest upgrade this year is for the Xbox, as EA and Microsoft have finally settled, and online play has finally arrived via XBLive. I'd like to not assign stars at all, but Amazon doesn't allow for pre-release non-reviews. So I'm assigning 5 stars based on Madden 2004, and the promise of the following new features. It is not meant to be commentary about the 2005 title.
I've done this for NCAA 2005 as well, but decided to adapt it for Madden as well. Everything in here is Madden-specific.
- The hit stick: The Hit Stick is a brand-new control innovation whereby players can attempt to lay a big hit on their opponent by flicking the right stick. They are risky, as a mis-timed hit can be devastating to your defense, but it can all pay off with a huge hit and a fumble or dropped pass.
- Reworked DB play/pass defense: Rebuilt from the ground up, with a focus on man-to-man coverage. Good DBs will now blanket their receivers better than ever before, and "shut down" corners will now play as such.
- All alternate team jerseys are now available.
- Updated player models for more intense realism.
- Reworked stadiums, fans, and environmental graphics.
- New running animations. "Over 1000 new animations added."
- Restricted Free Agents - Allow your young guys to test Restricted Free Agency.
- Preseason Position Battles - Let two players who are similar in talent battle it out for the starting job.

5.0 out of 5 stars an honest review.... August 13, 2004
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
ok people....let's clarify something, I am not here to bash anyone's game. I am simply writing a review with my honest opinion. Upon doing so, I will be comparing Madden to NFL 2K5 since everyone seems to think ESPN has knocked MADDEN off the top. here we go..........

First, both games are VERY good. No questions reagrding that. Simply a fact! I firmly believe that ESPN got more hype because of the price and the pre-realease, if you will. For the price, the game is excellent. Simply because we all want to spend less.

ESPN gets kudos for the graphics of the overall game. Madden could take a few pointers from this aspect of ESPN. Some of Madden's players look like they have their shirts on too tight (literally). The players look more realsitic in Madden than they ever have. But, ESPN has great graphics with life-like looking players.

Graphics winner: ESPN

Next is presentation. The presentation of ESPN simply beats Madden hands down. The fact that you can watch ESPN and the highlights of the games is very nice to add to a game for football lovers. Madden really has added nothing to compete with this until this 2005 release. The Bruno show has a nice little touch to this game, it's more personal with interviews with actual players and their real voices, real call-ins from listeners to the show, and Bruno even talks about your teams progress and news around the league. This helped Madden out in a large way, BUT, ESPN still comes out victorious. The little things ESPN added such as measuring for close first downs, panning over to the bench seeing the player talk on the phone to the upstairs booth, and a player holding a number one up and saying "hi, mom!", is a nice touch, but not mandatory.

4.0 out of 5 stars Different this year, but still good August 16, 2004
Format:Video Game
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
From Madden 2003 to Madden 2004 I felt like very little changed, and in 2004 we got Franchise Mode. That was fun with all its bells and whistles, but for those of us who only buy one game a year, and play it anxiously for 12 months and awaiting the next installment, it truly only provided for about 9 months worth of fun.

So here I was awaiting 2005. With all its bells and whistles, and claims of a better defense, I was excited.

The first thing that truly rocks about the defense is the ability to pick the defense for each player. I am a huge Bengals fan and was able to hold Ricky Williams to 8 yards of rushing in Miami, and I attribute that to this new defensive mode. Now, that is kinda unrealistic, but at the same time its great for me!!!

The hit stick is a lot more easier said than done. Half the time I found myself completely missing the guy I was trying to hit, or I would crush him, yet he still wouldn't fumble. Here and there you get lucky and nail em at the right time and the ball flies out, but its not that often.

The graphics are better, and the definition and body tone is good, however the players often times run through each other on the cut screens. That looks very Madden 2001 ish, but that's okay as long as it doesn't happen in the gameplay.

I love the storyline mode. That is very cool The email's from players are fun, and the Newspaper articles are awesome. The radio show is cool.

The biggest dissapointment has to be with the music. Usually there are a few decent songs chosen, but this year it just sucks! Way too many cheesy punk/pop songs, and rap songs. Wouldn't that be great if in 2006 they stuck to one style, and made it like a classic rock lineup?

Lastly, hopefully next year they will change the cut screen at the end of the game. That has been the same for 2 years now!
