Madden NFL 2005 introduces the Hit Stick, a new feature that lets players turn a game around with a crucial tackle. Along with all-new defensive preplay controls and defensive artificial intelligence enhancements, the defense now has a diverse arsenal of weapons available. Also, the depth of Franchise mode grows with the addition of Storyline Central, a weekly radio talk show that discusses current stories regarding your team and the league. With even more Franchise mode additions, hundreds of new animations, and the new Create-a-Fan feature, Madden NFL 2005 takes the series to the next level.
This game is brand new factory sealed. It is a Canadian seal, which means there is a sealed game inside of a shrink wrapped outer seal that allowed for a French language manual to be added. So essentially it is like this, Sealed Game -> French Manual -> Shrink Wrap Over Manual and Sealed Game. So the game itself inside is in very good condition sealed.
