Also etwas mehr Einfallsreichtum hätte man von den Entwicklern bei Electronic Arts schon erwarten können. Anstatt das Spiel grafisch einfach nur von den Heimkonsolen auf den Nintendo DS zu portieren, hätte man die einzigartigen Touchscreen-Fähigkeiten des Nintendo DS in die an sich sehr gute Steuerung von Madden NFL 06 einbinden können. So bleibt leider nur eine grundsolide Umsetzung eines hervorragenden Footballspiels übrig, die allerdings aufgrund ihrer grafischen Mankos etwas vom einzigartigen Madden-Charme einbüßt. Leider fehlen auch einige spielerische Neuerungen, die dieses Jahr auf dem GameCube ihre Premiere feierten.
Malgré un aspect légèrement répétitif et la présence d'un nombre de combinaisons qui en repousseront plus d'un, Madden NFL 06 s'en sort plutôt bien et ravira les fans du genre. Après tout, c'est le but...

It's odd to think this way, but this portable version has improved itself better than the console games. Everything has been cleaned up, fixed, and toyed with. The results are a staggering improvement. This isn't a replacement for those obsessed any of the home console versions of Madden '06, but a nice diversion when you can't get a fix on the road.

Uglier than a 400-pound lineman, this game is a total mess from top to bottom. The introduction of Franchise mode does little to alleviate the gameplay pain.

Madden NFL 06 is a step in the right direction when it comes to value-added features, but the in-game action is woefully inadequate when compared to its console counterparts. Instead of trying to recreate the console experience, the developers would be better off designing a game from scratch to take better advantage of the system’s dual screens and interactive features. Unless you absolutely have to have football on the go, it’s best to follow cover star Donovan McNabb’s lead: pass and enjoy a nice bowl of soup instead. Mama will be proud.
