Introduction
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ladies and Gentleman, are you ready for some good ol' football? The Xbox360 has
just come out and one of the must buys for the system for sports game lovers is
Madden Football 2006. Honestly, though you have to be crazy to buy this game
for the price it costs since when Madden Football '07 comes out, this game 
won't be worth anything almost. The game comes out at a high price, next year's
edition arrives and the price takes a nosedive is what we are saying. This is
also one the first Football games along with NCAA Football made in which EA
Sports has exclusive rights for football games which means no NFL2K6, NFL2k7,
etc.

QB Vision Control: Depending on the quarterback's ability, you will get a clear
view of the quarterback's vision ability. A cone shaped light will emit from
the quarterback and any receiver in range will be able to catch passes more
accurately. Refer to the in-game tutorial for more on this.

Precision Passing: Use the D-pad and the pass button to indicate where you want
the ball to be thrown at a receiver. Up throws the ball at jumping range,
left throws the ball behind the receiver, right throws it in front of the
receiver, and down throws the ball at the knees (low pass).

Truck Stick: Use this to deliver big hits to break tackles, pancake defenders,
and clear your way ti the end zone.  Press up at impact point. You run a higher
risk of fumbling the ball.

Smart Routes: Hold Y then hold the intended receiver button and press down on
the Right Thumbstick to run past the first down line before breaking off.
