Madden 2k5 or ESPN 2k5?

I have always been a hardcore madden video game fan, but since ESPN 2k5 has come out, I am questioning my loyalty to good ol' madden. Which do you think is better, Madden or ESPN?

i think the graphics are great, there are some things that can use improvement like face models, maybe more detailed weather, but really i have no complaints

Madden, but I'd like to point out that aside from madden all the other EA sports titles BLOW. Especially the basketball ones, those games are god awful, you have to go ESPN on basketball.

You know sports games need to improve though it seems like whenever they come out with a new year for the game only like 3 things are changed other than the rosters.

I like NBA live.

I have played 2k5 for 2 straight days now. I haven't played Madden so I can't compare, but ESPN kicks madden 04 around the room.

Game preparation owns owner mode.

Madden has the owner mode. Where you control prices and such. Well ESPN has game preperation, you basically go through the week and set up what your players do. Like position drills/weight lifting/aerobics. You also make team meetings and press conferences. On saturday you see how your players improved. They will go up in strength/speed/etc depending on hat you have them do.

yea you can go through ever position player on your team, and set up a weekly training schedule for them, you can make them do drills, watch tapes, you can have your coach have a team meeting, you can set the mood of the meeting, you basically have control of every aspect of your team

Tha sounds AWESOME!! But i read a newspaper review of the two games and it said that the graphics for ESPN where like people walking around with really badly made halloween masks. Especially when Chris Berman does his little shpeal.

Madden 2005 is going to blow ESPN out of the water. I've always been a Madden fan.

Madden is way too overrated. The graphics are nice, but the game play is kinda bad. I think ESPN is way more fun. I'm getting 2k5.

yea im not a big fan of the whole chris berman thing, except the halftime show is a nice way to lay out the stats. The only graphic flaws that i saw were outside of the actual game itself, however when im playing, i can find a single detail about the graphics to complain about

The jerseys and everything look great. The voice acting by the player of the game is pretty sucky.

Tommy Moddox talks like a west coast homeboy.

LoL.. really? According to the some critics..Espn is not very accurate when it comes to adjusting the difficulty level. Like when this guy put the difficulty level to hardest, he could still win everytime by a lot. While this same guy same that madden is more accurate, because it really shows the difficulty level getting harder.

this si what i've heard everywhere so far...

teh ONLY area where ESPN surpassed madden by a long shot is the presentation of the game...

gameply, graphics and everything else varied by what article/critic i read BUT they all agreed that ESPN had a way better presentation and feel to it one thing that seems cool about ESPN though if you have the hard drive for your PS2 (all 5 people) the half time show will have highlights from your game! that sounds cool to me

everyone said though that madden will still beat ESPN this year though cause of the rabid fan base
