Owner mode and play maker has finally arrived! Owner Mode is a HUGE new mode of the franchise and you have to make the right moves in your franchise otherwise your team can eventually go bankrupt and disappear from the NFL. You can move your team any where from LA to Hawaii and make the big moves to keep your team alive. Playmaker also makes its debut in Madden NFL 2004 and is a very cool part of the game. YOU CAN FINALLY change your route of direction so say I am the Dolphins and Ricky Williams is ready to run a HB Sweep to the right but you got two extra linebackers on the right you can sweep the play to the left instead and catch them off guard as you pick up a great gain! Playmaker is also great on defense so if your expecting a run to the right you can move the right thumb stick to the bottom right and have them move in. Graphics are very good in Madden NFL 2004 and are great with the owner mode and other stuff added this year. Great job EA Sports! Controls are very good in Madden with the addition of play maker in '04 and is a very great addition to the game. Madden NFL 2004 flows very smoothly and is the most solid football game to date. There is so much more to this game than just hiking a ball and throwing it to guys. You'll find yourself doing amazingly fun things you'd never thought you'd be doing in a Madden game.
