Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

The Best Game In The Series

I think that after this game was released the quality of the later games in the series began to decline.

Madden 2005 is the most realistic football game there is. This has more physical emotion when they get hurt and it's more creative because the new option lets you create your own fan to be just like how you want to have them.
