As the EA licensing grip on the NFL seems to never weaken, what alternatives are there for American football fans? Is NFL 2K5 the most valid one? We blew the dust off our PS2 and gave this old school goody a spin to answer this question.
The cowards over at EA fear this legendary sports series. Just as NBA2K destroyed NBA Live over time, NFL2K was positioned to destroy Madden as well. NFL2K5 was the last football videogame I bought and I will never buy Madden. The competition of who's game was better from GameDay, NFL Blitz, Quarterback Club, NFL Fever, Tecmo Bowl, etc will be no more. The glory days of **CHOICE** are gone and the monopoly continues.
Was the last football game I bought too. It was sooooo much better than madden.
Best football game yes but let's not forget the fact the last few games in nba 2k series have been riddled with micro transactions So not having competition hasn't helped Madden and it hasn't helped nba 2k
I will admit MTs coming from 2K is greedy as hell and they need to be gone, but the quality from Live have been abysmal as of late. I've seen point guards blocking centers and I was shocked that was still happening in the series in this day and age. It's why I try to act like Live don't exist. 2K definitely not perfect but I would take my chances with 2K instead of Live.
True. That's why competition is good. Micro transactions suck. I agree. But the game embarrasses live.
Yes it’s not even close.
I loved the ability to use songs burned to my Xbox for end zone celebrations and first downs. Also, the player interviews were so innovative. Also, the defensive controls and adjustments were so user friendly and intuitive. It’s definitely my favorite football game ever.
I remember having certain songs play for different situations.People ise to wonder how I put misic on the game2k5 covered everything
NFL2K5 was the best sports of all-times!
Bottom Line EA " had to buy that contract to survive till this day 2k5 is the super bowl xhampion
