Summary

The best football game ever.

The Good

The graphics were the best I have seen in a football game. The Madden cards are the coolest things ever. The classic players and All-Madden teams are also extremely cool. The career mode is a lot of fun. The secret teams and stadiums like the mummies are awesome. And just when you think you might be getting sick of the game you start using the awesome codes like electric side and fumblitis.

The Bad

The announcing was so repetitious and stupid. The least they could do would be to actually say the player's name instead of, "And number 82 comes up with the catch." And the classic player's are way underrated. Barry Sanders is only an 89 while there are about 15 other present running backs who are rated higher than him. Plus there are missing some significant players like Joe Montana and Walter Payton.

The Bottom Line

A wonderfully beautiful football game from EA Sports. Great graphics, awful announcing, but overall an awesome game.
