5.0 out of 5 stars Not a review, just a summary of new features. June 10, 2004
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.
GENERAL GAMEPLAY IMPROVEMENTS:
- 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."
FRANCHISE MODE IMPROVEMENTS:
- 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Same great game, same flaws October 6, 2004
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I've played just about every iteration of Madden since the original back in the Sega Genesis days, and it sure has changed! It remains the premier football game, although ESPN 2K5 is seriously challenging it this year, and not just for its low price tag. So how does Madden 2005 hold up?

GRAPHICS: Very nice. As with most sports games, I tend to use a far-away camera angle (better perspective), so I don't tend to care too much about the graphics. That said, the bump-mapping, textures and lighting effects are well done, and it's hard to fault Madden's visual execution.

SOUND: Good, but like always, nothing special. The commentary is yet again recycled; "Boom, he got developed!" anyone? The hits and game sounds are good, but they do the job, nothing more.

CONTROL/GAMEPLAY: This is where Madden shines, but also where it comes up short. The control is tight, the running game is more realistic than in years past, and the new tackling animations are getting better every year (ie: Halfback lunging forward for an extra foot or two when tackled, etc). The thing that annoys me is that the basic controls when running (juke, spin, stiffarm) basically haven't changed IN YEARS. The juke works ok, but the spin is easily the most useless move ever. Tacklers somehow always anticipate your spin, and in the rare occasions that you can get it off, you will waste so much time and momentum performing the spin (a canned animation, by the by) that it's usually better to juke or move out of the way by hand. The big improvement this year is the defensive AI; the computer adjusts better than in years past, though do not expect any miracles. An advanced player will still be able to whup the AI with a few games of practice under their belts.

3.0 out of 5 stars Review. ESPN vs. Madden... August 13, 2004
By Chris
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
For starters, I have played the Madden series since Madden '95 on sega and have been forking over my money every yr since then. I kind of regret doing so this yr.
With ESPN's release date a few weeks ealier, and 30 bucks cheaper paved the way for thier game to be number one. I purchased both of these games on the first day they came out. So while I was waiting for Madden to release, I played ESPN 'til my fingers bleed. So, now after I played a few games of Madden, it looks, feels, and plays horrible after ESPN. And this is what ESPN tried to do!! And they succeeded.
Don't get me wrong, there are soo much to love w/ Madden. The franchise mode has countless additions that make it ten times funner and deeper than last yr. With the new addition to team moral it makes it difficult to cut your old players and go for young ones to make your new young players progress by throwing them the ball 200 times in a season. If you trade, lets say, Peyton for rookie and some picks, your team gets mad, they play worse, and in turn makes thing a little rockier w/ the fans. This is a nice lil addition that keeps players from going out and stealing the top 6 picks in every draft. Another addition in Franchise mode is talk radio. This is a truely interesting and unique feature that plays actually interviews with players and coaches around the league. The one problem I have w/ this is that when you play multiple seasons, and Edgerrin James or Bill Cowher call in to have interview, it's going to be a little off when they both retired from the game 5 yrs ago. Nice thought though.
ESPN would be a near flawless game if they had HALF the franchise mode Madden has. Even though ESPN is deep, it's not even close when compared to eachother.
