eToychest has posted their review of Madden NFL 06, giving it a 70 out of 100.
"Overall, Madden NFL 06 makes some great improvements to the series. The graphics are fantastic, and the presentation is more realistic and immersive than ever before. However, there's no excuse for the gutting of the very features that made the Madden series great. It's a shame that EA made what had the potential to be the best version of the game, and subsequently sut it to the point of being the worst. It seems they just don't understand that no matter what the game looks like, the gameplay is the most important, and cutting gameplay out in order to make time to improve the graphics is about the worst decision a developer can make. If you're only looking to for the prettiest experience in videogame football, or if you don't have any other consoles that can take the game online, the Xbox 360 version of Madden NFL 06 might not be a bad purchase."
