I haven't played offline much because playing online is so much fun!! First of all; Even if you have 56K, you can actaully host! No cable? No problem!
Then there's INSTANT REPLAY feature: Refs will get the calls correctly about 90% of the time and when they won't you get to challenge the play!
Mellisa Starks does the sideline injury updates and play-by-play commentary with Al Michaels and John Madden is actually efficient! When you play online, sometimes they will give away your game plan to your opponent like "They've been running the ball all day, so defense should explect a rushing play by now."
Online feature is fun because you have many different tournaments and quick games against real people.
I am surprised that Amazon's price is so low on this because usually Madden titles go for $50 even after the "hot item stage."
So trust me when I say, under $30 is well worth it! If you find it for less than that, then more power to ya!
Pros: The Madden Bus! Cons: It's the Big Giant Head! The Bottom Line: Madden's size would make people afraid to fly with him. I'm glad he has the bus. Alright, alright, I know Im almost two editions late. But come on, weve both been starved for one of my fun video game rants for months. So sit down, shut up, read, and enjoy.
