Best 2k5 Element

I played the crap out of 2k5 on Xbox (sole reason I bought it) for 2 years. I played through almost 4 years of the franchise mode (big deal for me because I am a constant tweaker of rosters and things of that sort)

The element that I enjoyed from 2k5 was that during franchise mode every week of the season was a challenge. I struggled to go 8-8 and every game had a different feel to it. Sometimes teams ran the ball down my throat, other times I got scorched through the air. Either way each game I played I felt a true battle of strategy. Some teams could really stop the run and I was forced to win through the air other times I controlled the clock but couldn't quite punch it in at the end of a drive. Every game was different and unique through the season.

The way a season evolved and unto the next with franchise mode was amazing. I remember I had a safety who had 11 INT's who I lost during the offseason along with my highest rated corner. In the draft I went offense despite these loses. Well during that season my DB's were terrible and my defense suffered. I made sure the following year I bolstered my DB's and I actually made the playoffs with a 6 game turnaround.

Anyways that is what I remember the most about 2k5 playing through the franchise with players who really made a difference in the way my team succeeded or failed. I hope to get this experience again.

I'd have to say the physics based tackling system. Even though I wasn't in love with this feature I thought it was pretty cool.....1st person football.

Re: Best 2k5 Element

Flexibility/responsiveness of the attributes and sliders. Without these, the game would just be vanilla. These make it open to hone to each player's tastes. But I agree with our comments jrcain, each week is unique and makes the replay value the highest. One week your QB can look like he's sewn up a spot on the Pro Bowl team, the next....you're ready to cut him!

Re: Best 2k5 Element

Hopefully I won't appear to be too superficial, but I liked the little touches. The halftime, postgame and weekly wrap-up shows. Tons of retro and alternate unis. Great animiations. The game log and ability to go back and view any reply.
