Alle liefhebbers van de harde Amerikaanse sport American Football mogen hun borst nat maken voor de 2004 editie van Madden NFL. Madden NFL bestaat al 14 jaar en is in die jaren meer dan 28 miljoen keer over de toonbank gegaan! Dit deel bevat het revolutionaire Playmaker Control, de nieuwe Deep Owner Mode, een Stadium Builder, Online Play en nog veel en veel meer. Revolutionary Playmaker Control: Just like NFL players on the field, gamers now have more control over the action before and during the play with intuitive right stick adjustments. With Playmaker Pre-Play Control, use the right stick to quickly change plays, routes, or defensive coverage. After the snap, use the right stick to call out blocks, direct receivers, and make quick adjustments on defense.

Deeper Franchise Mode: Mini-camp drills will be integrated to boost up players during franchise mode in the off season and the Horse Trailer Player of the Game has been added, playing off John Madden's new on-air recognition. Signing bonuses are now available so team and player management can emulate the NFL's real salary cap system. Put players on the trading block and field offers for trades from computer teams.

Om alvast in de stemming te komen voor de naderende release, Madden NFL 2004 verschijnt 12 augustus in Amerika en een maand later in Europa, heeft EA Sports een demo beschikbaar gesteld. De 66MB wegende demo kun je vanaf deze, deze en deze locaties downloaden.
