5.0 out of 5 stars Totally Awesome. 8 Nov 2004
This is definately the best Madden game so far.
I have been a regular 'Maddener' for probably 12 years or so, I have seen all the progressions the game has made. After all this time I was expecting a very similar game to 2004 with a few tweeks here and there, I was not expecting the advances they have made to be so big!
I love the new defensive back awareness, this was always a problem on 2004, it was easy to score points (on all dificulty levels) but one play later and you had given up a 85 yard touchdown reception. The new defensive back awareness makes this a very rare occasion now, the only way this comes about is a receivers blazing speed compared to the CB/S (e.g. Randy Moss (sp99) on Ahmed Plummer sp(87)!).
The Hit-Stick is a very nice addition to the game, it gives me a sense of 'power' when blitzing with Roy Williams. Obviously I don't try this very often on RB's like Jamal Lewis or Jerome Bettis due to the fact that its like trying to stop a tank with a Lada its not happening, but when you see a free run at Tiki Barber or Wawrick Dunn you flick that right analog stick and just 'lower the boom' onto them its great! This also comes in handy when a receiver comes across the middle into one of my Safties zones again once the ball has been caught flick the Stick and 'BOOM' an incompletion on 3rd and 7!
The offence has become harder (finally) I still score 50+ points sometimes (no not on rookie but on All-Pro/All-Madden (just moved the level up after the 1st year)) but not as much the reason?

4.0 out of 5 stars Great NFL experience 3 Dec 2004
As a recently indtroduced fan to American sports, I was slightly worried that Madden NFL 2005 would be a bit complicated and hard to pick up and play. However, from the moment I started my first match it was clear that my worries were unfounded.
Both the offensive and Defencive plays are clearly labelled with diagrams of how they work so even if you don't know your monster blitz from your HB plunge you can still select the right play at the right time. The graphics and animations are all smooth and colourful with no lag just as you go to make that killer play to clinch the game. All the teams are here with lovingly recreated uniforms and stadia. The great thing about this title is that its as deep as you want. Whether you're into customising your uniforms and updating all the teams rosters, or just playing a few games now and then, Madden has just the right game mode for you.
However, there are a few minor niggles now and than. Menus can take a while to load and the opposition will delay the play for as long as they can in the dying moments of the match to preserve their lead. This, and missing extra points, can be frustrating at times.
On the whole this a great fun to play and you'll be an expert in no time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely amazing 7 Feb 2005
I had never before played or even considered playing an NFL game. I rented NFL street as part of a 3 for the price of 2 offer at blockbuster. I was really amazed how good the game of American football was. I decided to buy NFL but I couldn't find it anywhere, so I bought Madden NFL 2005.
I was at first confuse because there were so many plays to be used. However once I had picked it up I found it was amazing. Madden 2005 offers a lot to the gamer. Firstly it has numerous modes.
Franchise - this is the main mode where you pick a team and take them to superbowl glory, you can trade players, sign free agents, upgrade your stadium, relocate the team and call them what you want, win numerous awards for your players, train your players, go through the off season and even play the Pro-bowl in Hawaii. In addition to all of the team management there are the local newspapers and e-mail's. The papers tell you whose injured and how long for, who beat who in the playoffs, whose got the best record in the league and all of the other stuff papers tell you. The mails are from your team, your players will complain about not starting, your board will say how well you are doing, you will praised by the coaches and presidents of the team and much, much more. There is also the radio station. It goes on in the background of the menu, not the fixtures list. The presenter holds little quizzes that people phone into and most of the time get wrong, he talks about the good teams and the bad teams and the player of the week.
Tournament - Set up a tournament where you can face all of the teams in the NFL not just those in your league.
Mini games - Like practice for you. There are four levels to each that get harder as you go along.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best sports game EVER! 12 Oct 2004
Ever since 2001 i have been buying madden NFL games. I am very fond of North american games such as NHL which EA sports also covers.
The reason why i love these games is because there is just sooooo much to do. You can build a player in any position you want. U can make him 7 feet and 500lb or 5 feet and unbelivably quick, your choice. Or if you want to you can make a entire team with your favourate players and a few made one in there. TYhen you can do a season for up to 20 years and maybe one day win the Superbowl!
Also a nice added effect is that if you buyor do paticular objections you collect Madden cards, which are cards with pictures on the front of famous players, coaches and Stadiums. On he back are stuff that can help you in an important match e.g. Unlmeted time outs or U cant fumble for 1 Quarter.
In the new Games there are a huge selection of playbooks or if you dont like any of them you can make your own plays!
Dont worry if you dont know much about american football because u WILL learn as you play. It is the greatest sport EVER and the game is the same!
