Decent game at best.

I got this from gamefly and its decent. Played 3 games last night and owned in all of them to get all the game achievements. (on pro 5min quaters, francise). This game is not what I imagined next-gen football to be. If anyone has seen what 2k sports are doing with MLB 2k6 then you've seen what next gen sports can be. I wish Madden wasnt my only choice. I love football games too, but I couldnt see this being more then a rental for me. As far as getting 1000 points this game is pretty easy.

Re: Decent game at best.

I got really choppy videos when switching from game to video clip. It killed the game for me.

Re: Decent game at best.

My favorite game without a doubt on the 360 thus far, but i cant wait for 07 since yes alot can be done, and with a full scedule to make a Real Next gen game....sweet it will be good, but since people bitch about 06 having easy achievement si bet 07 will be hard

Re: Decent game at best.

With no competition to keep them in line I think EA will slack off again next year. I hope not, I'm a HUGE football game fan (was ranked in the top 100 on NFL 2k5 out of over 140,000 players), but I couldnt play this through a whole season let alone 10 years on francise. and I'm not a 2k fan boy, I played Madden 03 until my create a player (a sorely missed feature) retired after like 12 seasons playing every game.

Re: Decent game at best.

They took out too many features in the 360 version, I refuse to buy a Madden for next-gen until next year because of that, they rushed it, and now the game is ASS

Re: Decent game at best.

Bah Scoob, I am a football fan as you know, and this game isnt good. I'm not just talking about all the missing features. The graphics are decent (by why does everyone STILL look so fat) and I thought the gameplay was less then average. I can see how a football fan can pick this up and play the hell outta it, as it is the only football game out right now for the 360. But that doesnt mean its a good game.

Believe me, im a football fan, during football season, i eat, drink, and breathe it.. Ive had every Madden since god knows when, and I get them the day they come out, i have Madden 06 for the original Xbox, and i played the hell out of it up until December, theres no reason for me to pick up the one for 360 because ive played it enough already and i refuse to support a shitty game, which Madden for the 360 is..

Ill buy 2007 no matter how bad it is just because i get it every year, i just hope they improve upon the bad port that they came out with this year..

Re: Decent game at best.

I eat bearth shit football all the time(nfl network is a god of mine lol) so yea i understand that.

iv been playing 93 wsitch im pretty sure was the fierst year.

madden has been my luanch game for PS2, xbox and 360 so far, iv played it on all major consels and what not.

i didnt buy it for xbox this year i rented it on gf on relase(so got it a day after it came out) and returned it nov 23rd.

i dont see how you can say its shitty game, its the same game but purdyer and with out that lame qb vison crap and that player bullshit.

yes like iv said about 30 post before this it doesnt have the padding, but its still madden, still push X to pass to X wr and what not.

of course im buying madden 07, it will be the same as every year but with the extras everyone but me uses 0_0

only fix or add on i want is microsoft servers not ea

Re: Decent game at best.

I got Madden on launch. I think it's a pretty good game. The Colts are a bit under-rated though .

Some things missing from previous (and probably this year's version for XB and PS2) but still overall an enjoyable game.

30-years of franchise was a bit of a pain. I wish as a coach you had the opportunity to switch to a currently coachless team, and try to improve them. I had to wait til i was sacked by Indianapolis in 2026 before I took over at the Bengals (Who were 1-15, and I took them to the SuperBowl in two seasons, got obliterated by Atlanta though!)

Will definitely be getting 2007/8/9/10 etx

and theres the problem. people will buy Madden no matter how shitty it is because its the only one there or because they are so used to buying it. And thats why EA will not make the game that much better. because they can recycle the same shit year in and year out and people will still be begging to plop down there 50-60 bucks for it.

Re: Decent game at best.

yeah i know, we could keep the one game(say 06) forever since ea doesnt need to add anything....but hey roster update is worth 60 bucks!


ok so its not, i really dont have intrest in other games or many so 60 bucks to a rehash is fine.

Re: Decent game at best.

nah I get it. Hey man, I hope Madden is goo dnext year too as I am a avid football game player. Just not holding my breath . And dont get me wrong, Ive never said that this game was total trash... Just not near what it should have been. Like I said decent. But after 15 years of madden shouldnt they all be amazing ?
