Madden NFL 2005 - Gamecube
The Madden series returns for another year with Madden NFL 2005. Besides the usual roster updates, the major gameplay changes in this iteration mostly concern defensive play. There are also expansions to the franchise mode and to online modes along various other additions and changes.
Major changes to defensive play include the introduction of the Hit Stick: it allows precise and context-sensitive tackling through the use of the second analog stick. There is now also defensive playmaker control (allowing on-the-fly position changes) and defensive hot routes. The offense was also expanded and now allows for formation shifts on the line.
