Madden is the game that EVERYONE plays and this year will be no exception. For the first time in video game football, you'll have to play both sides of the ball - now defense matters and is fun to play. New defensive tools allow you to make more plays and be in on all of the action. The all-new Hit Stick lets you lay the big hit to turn the momentum of the game in your favor. With the new Storyline Central, you get the inside scoop around the league from radio host Tony Bruno, along with local and national newspapers, to help you make critical franchise decisions. With groundbreaking graphics that capture the real stadium experience, Madden NFL 2005 continues its 15-year tradition of video game innovation.

AWESOME FOOTBALL GAME!
Madden NFL 2005. It's such a fantastic game! Nothing could make this game better. First, the graphics. They are flat out stunning, with the ability to gang-takle somebody and a ton of automatic instant replays. The field and the players look extremely realistic. Next, the features. You nearly get to customize the entire game! I mean, if you visit the Game Features section of the menu, you see a long line of create-a-things, like a player, a team, a fan, a pckage, a playbook and the plays inside it. Next, the modes. A deeper franchise mode has been created with Storyline Central (which includes your madden email, local and national newspapers, etc.), EA Sports radio, and the ability to take a CREATED TEAM into an amazing dynasty. Or you could do the fantasy draft and build a team from the ground up. And so, if you want the best Madden around with breathtaking graphics and features and stuff, I highly suggest that you look into Madden NFL 2005.
Madden 05 absolutely shocked me. I mean, it's from 2004 and I figured if I wasn't satisfied I'd just trade it in. But this was much different. Create just about ANYTHING in this game: a fan, a player, a package, a team, a fan, you name it; the list goes on and on. The graphics are awesome and gameplay features deliver a good feeling to you. You get to gang tackle or use the Hit Stick for big hits. In terms of Franchise mode, I'd recommend you create a team first then use it in the franchis so you can call the shots for YOUR OWN CREATED TEAM. And speaking of which, that feature is really awesome, too. Customize the uniform for home games, away games, and both alternate jerseys, the ENTIRE STADIUM, and its info like the city, state, logo, and fill out the ENTIRE ROSTER. To sum it all up, Create-a-team is 100% YOU. And Franchise mode is very deep. Check local and national newspaper, check your Franchise "email", listen to the EA Radio, look at the team's info, set prices for stadium stuff and other stuff, sign top free agents or trade for the best players in the country that happen to be on other teams, and nab the top draft picks in the NFL Draft which features three events (college all-star game, rookie workouts, and, of course, the draft itself). There is so much more stuff in Franchise and the game itself but it would take forever to finish and I've said enough already. There is nothing bad about this game and if you are a hard-core Madden gamer, this game is for you 100%.
I am a big fan of madden.This is an awesome addition to my collection.First the graphics are amazing,for a GameCube game.It looks so realistic.Next, it has so many cool features.I made a beast who had 99 in every stat.Make a godly team.I could never be defeated with he team that I had.My favorite, the fans.you could make the craziest fans ever. And you get to see them when you are playing the game.You could also be cheap with the roosters.Why make a team when you could use all the current players?Also, the final feature is franchise.Dominate all the teams with yourself.Amazing Game
There is no greater curse than not owning Madden NFL 2005. So, I played as the Buccaneers in this game and won the superbowl against the Buffalo Bills. I referenced the fact that I played as the Bucanneers in my Madden NFL Wii preview buzz. Anyways, I found the gameplay to be quite enjoyable and I went a straight (16-0-0) season just like the 1972 Miami Dolphins. This game is a victory for the United States since the Cold War of 1947. I know I'm out of character, but please bear with me. The game is awesome. You should go buy it.
