A Look Back At The Madden Evolution

Madden NFL 2003
Released: Aug 12, 2002
Platform: PS2/Xbox

The PlayStation 2 version of Madden NFL 2003 had the distinction of being the first console version to ever go online. For true Madden fanatics, this was a very big deal. In fact, the online play was so popular that a lot of other dope aspects Tiburon incorporated into this version often go forgotten when people look back at the game. 2003 had a sick editor, Create-A-Playbook, which was one of the deepest editors to date, allowing players to do just about every type of formation (as long as it met NFL regulations) or play they could dream up. Throw in an addicting Mini Camp Mode, along with the usual features the series offered, and Madden 2003 packed a lot of punch.
