The game is good, but not great. I am a football nut, and had to have this game, if you are like me, buy it. Otherwise, wait until 2007 comes out. The gameplay is classic Madden, which is good. The graphics are really good, but it is missing so many options that I come to expect that it overall, was a dissappointment.
No create-a-player, no mini-games, no coaches challanges, just inexcuseable in my book.
