Game Method has posted their review of Madden NFL 06, giving it a 74.
"Madden NFL 06 is a Madden football game. It has updated rosters, it has all of the new rookies, and it has some new features that avid fans of the series may enjoy. It still features the basic gameplay that has made the series great. Unfortunately, this latest iteration is the weakest that the series has seen in many years, as its attempts to innovate come up uncharacteristically short. Perhaps it is not directly a result of the lack of competition that has driven Electronic Arts to publish such a weak title, but the timing certainly is suspicious. Whatever the case, Madden NFL 06 represents the first time a Madden title has not been great. Hopefully the upcoming jump to next-generation consoles will provide the series with some serious updates to a formula that has become utterly stale."
