I'm Madden fan on the Play Station. I have a few buddies that say I really need to try ESPN Football on the Xbox. They say I will never go back. Gameday is a produced locally and was one of my favorites about 5-6 years ago. I have the new ESPN football game still in its wrapper.

Madden for years but kinda disappointed in this years game. ESPN is a very good game as well and i have XBOX. Wouldnt have it any other way. Actually we have both systems but the sports get played on XBOX...well ok...3/4 of the video games get played on the XBOX i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif

madden is great....ESPN is also great.

I will always be faithful to Madden if I had to choose...Luckily, I never WILL have to choose, I can play both without feeling like I am betraying the other.

Even if ESPN was impirically to become a better game, I cannot replace how intuitively I know the madden controls...when I want to spin I dont think (press O) I just do it. That is what a decade of Madden will do for you :-)

I played ESPN and Madden last year on Xbox, and ESPN to me was a far better game and this year for $20 for 2k5, you cant beat it for the price.

My all time favorite was "Gridiron" (1986) on the Amiga computer, which was the first physics based football computer game. Gridiron used simple dots (sprites) to represent each player, but the movement of those simple dots was revolutionary at the time. Bethesda Softworks helped design EA's "John Madden Football" and used the "Gridiron" technology in John Madden

Madden fan here up until this year when I bought ESPN for $20. And the presentation is MUCH better, I love the ESPN theme.

By the way, I used to play Gameday up until 2001, then they went sour...

I used to be a Madden fan but ESPN 2K5 really brought it to the table this year, 100% better than last year. It is all around the best NFL video game out to-date. The $20 price doesn't hurt either. Madden is garbage this year and ESPN 2k5 fixed all of their weak points from last year and fixed weak points from Madden as well. The play is more realistic.

ESPN 2K5 A+
Madden 2005 C+

MADDEN all th way nothing beats madden the graphics, the franchise, the mini games, the two minute drill, and online play, its deffintley one of the best games i've ever played and i have PS2, XBOX, gamecube, dreamcast, N64, and NES, plus over 75 games, i can never put madden away its just amazing


all you NFL 2K5 fans, i played it, it was okay, it just doesn't have the same feeling madden brings to you


well thats my opion.

Blitz allows you to feel like your in the game, with madden they just fall on each other like flowers.

I have both madden and nfl2k5 and I must say that Madden is 10000x better. I really couldnt stand NFL2k5. I loved the ESPN theme, but the novelty wore off very quickly, leaving Madden to rule the roost i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif.

Tecmo Bowl was great while I was growing up.
Nowadays, I like both ESPN and Madden. Unfortunatly 989 has gone down hill from PS1 to PS2

Does anyone agree that creating your own plays in Madden 2005 is very unfriendly, saying the least. Kind of like building blocks. Does 2k5 allow more flexibility and creativity with creating plays? And it's too bad that ESPN snubbed Gamecube.

Madden 05 is the best better than 2K5 in my opion.

I really got sick of Madden this year. Too much of the same. NFL 2k5 is def my favorite. The tackles, catches and moves are so much more realistic. (have you tried scrambling a QB in Madden? talk about lame).

2k5 is a breath of fresh air.
