    Default The Madden 2006 Thread

    got the game yesterday..... played for hours. got totally wrapped up in the "superstar" mode. my player got drafted in the 3rd round by the denver broncos. very cool. the thing i don't like is that you have to play a whole season with the team that drafted ya. kinda blows. graphics are great and the animation gets better every year. still don't understand why they have to charge $50 for the thing!! thank god for gift cards! looking for to going home and starting my new franchise!

    Yep. The monopoly trend with sports games that has started sucks. Last year's price wars were awesome.

    Boycott buying games until the manufacturers drop their prices. (Yeah, like that will help)

    I too, bought it yesterday. The graffix are improved in my opinion but I STILL think NFL2k had a better overall look than even this new Madden 06. I just have to let it go I guess since Madden is my only choice for NFL gaming. I might check out Midway's game though....especially since the QB for the wannabe Falcons is Ron Mexico lol.
    I didn't explore the player creation options yesterday. I just jumped right into a season with my Lions. They actually are finally decent on the game. The gameplay was pretty good. The new passing feature is pretty neat though I am not 100% sold on it yet. If I don't like it I'll just turn it off.
    I will say this Madden blows away the Madden from 05. On a 1 to 10 scale I will give it a 7.5 so far! My review will be continued as I get deeper into the features.

    I don't know that I'll be buying this, at least not at full price. I'll probably wait like I do every year and wait until it drops below $20 at Wal-Mart.

    Yeah...I guess we are pretty sad...OR simply still kids. I sat here at my desk after geting it at lunch up the street at the mall. I broke the seal on that bad boy and opened it up as if looking at the disc would provide me satisfaction.

    Yeah, I got it last night. $44.99 on sale....

    The game play seems a little choppy at times, but I need to play with it more. I do miss 2K5....I gave mine away because I had to concentrate on my Madden skills....I may buy it again just to have for the historical teams or something....

    Alot of people are bitching about it, saying "Oh, it's the same thing from last year.." Well, we've kind of reached the limit to what can be done graphics-wise on a PS2.... Football itself is pretty much the same every year....How much can you possibly change the video game?

    The kids bitching are the ones that didn't have to grow up playing what passed for "Football" on an Atari 2600, which was basically 1 dot throwing a smaller dot to another dot while being chased by 3 more dots......

    I only rented last year's Madden but I think this years is MUCH better in terms of gameplay and graffix. I thought that 04 and 05 had practically NO differences in them.

    This game has really been growing on me. I turn the commentator volume to 0%, take the controls back to Madden05, and get rid of the passing cone.

    One thing I noticed, I don't know if it's on 05 or not....

    When you go to kick a field goal at the end of the game, you hear a loud heartbeat, and the controller rumbles like crazy.... It worked, because I missed a chip shot that could have won a game.

    Madden really is more enjoyable if you get rid of the commentator volume. You wouldn't hear that shit on the field anyway.

    I'm finding my stats are more on par with what they would be in a real game. I use P. Manning, and on 04 I was completing like 90% of my passes for 400yrds a game.

    Now I'm only completing about 70% for 230yrds a game

    Madden games havent been good in a few years. Last years ESPN 2k5 was a better football game IMO.

    Madden seems too 'Floaty".
