|                            5) New Features (5NFT)                           |
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+

(From Instruction Manual)

New Offensive Controls and Features

QB Vision Control: Every quarterback in the NFL has a unique field of vision.
   Some all-Pro quarterbacks can see all the action unfold from sideline to
   sideline, while others may as well be looking out of their ear holes.  The
   new QB Vision Control brings this aspect of the game to life.

   After the snap, your quarterback's field of vision shows where he's looking.
   To lock on to a receiver, press the R2 button + the button of your targeted
   receiver and your vision automatically goes to him.   You can also press the
   right analog stick left/right to move the vision and find open receivers. Be
   careful, if you try to throw a pass to a player outside your field of
   vision, the pass won't be as effective.

  EA Sports Tip: Before trying to use the QB Vision in a game, check out the
   Vision and Precision tutorial located in the Madden Tutorials, then take
   some practice snaps in Practice mode until you feel comfortable.

  EA Sports Tip: Avoid looking at receivers until the last second to deceive
   who might be keying on your eyes.

Precision Passing: Whether leading a receiver to an open area, throwing away
   from a defender, or pulling the string on a deep ball, throw every pass
   exactly where you want it, how you want it.  Direct passes as your QB
   releases the ball by pressing the left analog stick or D-button in the
   direction you want to guide the ball.

Truck Stick: It's time for the offense to get even.  Deliver big hits to break
   tackles, pancake defenders, and clear your path to the end zone by pressing
   the right analog stick Up at the point of impact.  Keep in mind your risk of
   fumbling increases.

Smart Routes: Picking up nine yards on a third-and-ten play won't do you much
   good.  Now, you can tell a receiver to run past the first-down marker before
   breaking off his route by selecting him as you would in a hot route
   (Triangle button then the button corresponding to him), then pressing the
   right analog stick down.

Formation Specific Audibles: Each offensive formation has four new audibles
   that can be called at the line of scrimmage to quickly change plays without
   tipping off the defense.  Press the square button then press the right
   analog stick up for a quick pass, down for a run, left for a playaction
   pass, or right for a deep pass.

After you have created your NFL Superstar you will be in a small apartment, for
now the only items you have access to are ''My Schedule'', and ''Cellphone''.
''My Schedule'' is where all of the planning will be done, movie shoots, game
plans, interviews, practices, games, etc.  When you are looking to advance the
story check out ''My Schedule''.  ''Cellphone" keeps your messages under
control, when the New Mail Icon is flashing green that means you have a message

locked until after the NFL Draft.

Go to ''My schedule'' and then to the Mentor Meeting, it should be the first
event on your schedule.  This event is a basic meeting between you and your
mentor, Terrell Davis.  Speak with him and ask any questions you are unsure
about.  When you are finished tell him you are ready to go.  Next up is an
interview, after the interview you need to sign an Agent.  This is a fairly
simple process that all you need to do is look through the Agents that are
interested in you (the names in white are interested in you) after selecting
an agent save your Superstar.

Now this is a way to be asured you get a good score on the IQ Test which is the
next event in your schedule.  After making sure your game is saved, go to the
IQ test, answer all 20 questions and if you get a low percentage on your IQ
test, turn off your system, turn it back on and retry the IQ Test, do this
until you get your desired score.  After getting your desired score save your
game again, it is almost time for the NFL Draft.

After making sure your game is saved go to the NFL Draft, now there is also a
way to ensure you get the team you wish to play for, let the draft run, and
you will be told what team has drafted you, if that is not the team you wish to
play for turn off your system, turn it back on and do the draft again, continue
this process until your desired team has drafted you (note: this may take a
while).

Now that the draft is over you have access to the rest of the items in your
room.  The Map allows you travel to the barber shop, tattoo parlor, stadium,
performance institute, agents office, and to the practice field.  The Rookie
handbook addresses questions that you may have.  In the mirror you can change
your Superstars uniform and accessories.  Also, there is My Web, here, you can
access information througout the season.

Once you have looked at the new features go to My Schedule, after the draft you
should have some interviews, do the interviews as they come up and any other
events of interest.  Also there are practices, your Superstars stats will
change depending on how you practice, so do your best at practice or your
Superstar will suffer.  Information about your practices can be found on My 
Web.  After the Pre-season is over, get ready to play your best through the
Regular Season.

As you progress through your Superstar career you will gain more exposure and
be able to move into a larger apartment, and have merchandise, do the best you
can to win, and have a good market appeal.  Be sure to go to your Agents office
often to promote games, and boost your appearance.

Do the best that you can to win the Super Bowl your first year.  As a rookie
this will give you excellent exposure.  You will get offers for movies, and
you will get spokesperson offers from different companies which will boost your
Exposure, Marketability, and Popularity, if you play well enough you can even
make the cover of a Madden game!

As you progress through your career, be sure to keep an eye out for a better
Agent.  Some have access to the Sports Institute.  As you progress through your
career you will move on to bigger and better places, keep using this same
general strategy and you will become the next NFL Superstar.
