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?

are you kidding? madden is the most overrated ps2 game i have ever played. I just bought espn 2k5 and it is so much better than madden, plus its 30 bucks cheaper

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.
