First, so you know who is writing this review, I am not a Madden guy. I play all sorts of video games, but Madden is not normally one of those games. I have been thinking about this and the last time I played a Madden game was on one of these."

Overall: Another year and another iteration of the perennial Madden football game is upon us. Since the next gen consoles have graced our homes with their presence Madden has been a disappointment. It seems as though somebody at EA heard our cries, or the fact that 2K was fixin to drop a football game on the public, that Madden has finally come to play some football. It is the best next gen Madden to date and can even compare to the best Madden of alltimes, Madden 2004. Yes 05 was not better than 04.
Gameplay: If you don't know how to play football you're either a Barbie lovin, hopscotch jumper or you haven't been born yet. Maddens gameplay however is great. The animations are running at you at 60 FPS and never stutter steps. There are new moves and some delicious new bone jarring hits evident in the game. I hit this receiver so hard one time I dropped the controller and hoped I didn't kill the guy! I would say that the gameplay has improved mightily over last years game.
Graphics: Visually there are some improvements but not much. I hate looking into the crowd, and when you play franchise mode if there is coach with no face you get this weird silverfaced freak to pace sideline. EA definitely took a shortcut there. I would like to see a 2K esque crowd where there is some realistic movement going on.
Sound: I could sum this up in 10 words are less but I have to have 50 so here goes, No Madden, no Michaels commentary, No Madden, no Michaels commentary, No Madden, no Michaels commentary. How many words is that? I mean seriously this radio guy is the worst and he is wrong too much. Please EA stop this madness. I let Madden pick my plays just to hear his voice that is how bad it is.
Suggestions: Get Madden and Michaels back. Fix the crowd, fix those coaches, and have the CPU offer up some trades. The Ugly Truth: Much better than last year, yet room for improvement.
