Product Details:

Madden is the game that EVERYONE plays and this year will be no exception. For the first time in video game football, you'll have to play both sides of the ball - now defense matters and is fun to play. New defensive tools allow you to make more plays and be in on all of the action. The all-new Hit Stick lets you lay the big hit to turn the momentum of the game in your favor. With the new Storyline Central, you get the inside scoop around the league from radio host Tony Bruno, along with local and national newspapers, to help you make critical franchise decisions. Now bringing the definitive online football gaming experience to Xbox Live, Madden NFL 2005 continues its 15-year tradition of video game innovation.

Madden returns for another season of big hits, amazing plays, dramatic comebacks and in-your-face football action with Madden NFL 2005. Pick your team and begin a quest for the Super Bowl. Build the ultimate team and hold it together for many seasons to make a NFL dynasty. Develop players in training camp, pick up playmakers in free agency, or make your own stars with create-a-player. Do whatever it takes to dominate your opponents and take home a Super Bowl ring in Madden NFL 2005.

Force the action on defense in Madden NFL 2005. New defensive tools allow you to make more plays and be in on all of the action. The all-new Hit Stick lets you lay the big hit to turn the momentum of the game in your favor.

* New Hit Stick - Change the momentum of a game by using the right analog stick to make a huge hit, force a turnover, and send the crowd into a frenzy. Time it just right or you'll get burned for a big play.

* New Defensive Playmaker Control - You are now in complete control on defense. Modify pre-snap assignments, including double teams and player-specific match ups, for any defensive player on the field.

* New Storyline Central - Get inside the NFL like you never have. Now your games are impacted by the stories that surround your team. Satisfy your star WR's demands or watch your team chemistry suffer. Get the scoop from local and national newspapers, email from assistant coaches, and Tony Bruno's weekly radio talk show.

* Enhanced Franchise Mode - Players now react to everything that happens in the franchise - reward a hard-working player by naming him team captain or trade away unhappy players. The new game-by-game progression system rewards players for their performance during the season.

* New Fan Presentation - Your team's crowd is now customizable with new Create-a-Fan. Be on the lookout for team-specific super fans via all-new 3D fan scenes.
New EA SPORTS Online - Take on the best Madden players in quick tournaments, or compete in a mini-game of Rushing Attack. Improved EA SPORTS Fair Play keeps the playing field level.

* Customizable live ticker, which can communicate real-life sports scores to you, as well as updates on what your online friends are up to.

* You'll be able to set up tournaments either in the game itself or on your PC through a web-based interface. Tournament alerts and messages from other players can be sent your way via an upgraded EA messenger function, which can be set to forward text messages to you via e-mail or to your cell phone via SMS when you're not online.

* New statistics: reputation rating. Letting you rat out foulmouthed cheaters while pointing out sportsman-like players. That rating will have an impact on how you find players. You can search for players with high rep ratings in an attempt to ensure a fair game. Players with higher reputations will also gain access to special, "elite" lobbies, where only players that have been deemed to be trustworthy can play. That rep will carry over to other online EA Sports games. Players will also earn trophies and medals, which will be on display in an online trophy case.

* Online minigames: Rushing Attack - a five-minute arcade-style football game where the ball switches possession after every minute.
