Madden 2005 is an excellent example of how a game can improve within a year’s time. EA Tiburon has done an excellent job on this title, just as they did with the console version. The additional game modes, new game engine, and great new interface make this game so much better than last year’s. It still isn’t up to par with the console version, but saying that is like comparing Sprite to Jolt Cola. You just can’t compare goodness with godliness. When all is said and done, it should be said that if you just can’t get enough football, or Madden football for that matter, you should definitely pick this title up for your portable fix. Otherwise, you may want to make a quick judgment call and wait this one out if you aren’t a big fan of the sport. After all, there are plenty of more titles to get your attention. Football fans will definitely get a kick out of this title, though, and it is certainly worth their dime.
