Pros Pretty graphics, updated rosters
Cons Same game every year.
Summary Same game every year with updated rosters. Nothing breathtaking unless you're using a version of Madden from the 1990's.
Bottom line: TECMO BOWL is coming back! The Nintendo DS version will be out next month, and the Wii version out next year. At least THEY understand what people want.
ONE game....you can edit and create teams, players, rosters, etc. and share them on the internet. Now that's SMART gaming creating...and, oh, it's TECMO BOWL!
Pros Only the name, MADDEN. And lets be serious, his act is a little tired.
Cons EA's exclusive rights agreement with the NFL allows them to be the only game in town. No competition, no choice. They push this stuff like crack to junkies and people line up waiting to fork over $60.
Summary If you have to support your NFL habit, there is ultimately no choice but to buy Madden. Exactly EA's game plan. If this was the best game in town, why did EA snuff out the competition? Another choice, buy last years game used for $20, update the rosters and screw EA sports. Make them really enhance the game, provide the ultimate experiance for $60, not just a rethread game they push year after year after year after year after year. You get the idea. And, I spouted like this on the IGN site and got banned. Must be owned by EA. So remember kids, all of this can yours for the low low price of $59.99.

Pros last years copy is now cheaper
Cons $60 for updated rosters is silly
Summary The only thing I love about Madden Day is the fact that I can now purchase last year's copy at a GameSpot for $20 or less. Spending $60 on virtually the same game for a couple of new bells and whistles is a waste of money IMO.
Pros Only The Online Feature
Cons Game play sucks tremendously
Summary This games is the most unrealistic madden I've played since it was on Super Nintendo. It has focused more on graphics than on game play. Just like the old NFL 2K, and it sucks
