GamePro has posted Madden NFL 06 reviews for the following consoles:
- Playstation 2 (5/5)
"When you're the only player in the game all you have to compete with yourself. So even though Electronic Arts locked up the NFL license for videogames this season and beyond, the Madden football franchise isn't just standing on the sidelines. Developer EA Tiburon opened up the hood of its game engine to significantly modify gameplay and even career mode."
- Xbox (5/5)
"The "precision" part means you can now throw the football where only your receiver can catch it. If you hit the directional buttons as you pass you can toss it above his head, at his shoelaces, behind him, or ahead of him. But now you have to work hard during every pass play. Whether you're using Xbox, PS2, or GameCube, you're using every button and stick on your controller and that means practice, practice, practice."
- GameCube (4.5/5)
"Madden NFL 06 would be a great upgrade even if weren't the only NFL-licensed football game around. Kudos to EA Sports for not being afraid to juice the complexity factor of an already complex game. Rookies will have to pay their dues, but veterans get treated to a brand-new challenge. And if you're somewhere in between you should just enjoy the game."
