No superstar or franchise mode! they call them connected careers. the "superstar" is pretty cool to play, but the "franchise" is and has been terrible for last past couple years. What happened to the days where you determined ticket pricing, concessions and built your own stadium. Now we get guys looking liking clumsy jelly sticks falling all over each other.
Decent game, but they have a lot of work to do if they want to keep the avid Madden Fans out there.
Title says it all. While the commentary is much better (no Colinsworth = huge improvement), it's very limited when players switch teams. The gameplay is closer to NCAA, which in my opinion is much better/more fluid.
That said, the franchise mode is a mess. No drafting of teams, player tendencies and team tendencies don't work properly. Contracts are a bit messy. For what I play the game for, I wasn't overly impressed.
The game overall is decent. But the first time I saw players fall all over the place and trip over each other while the ball is dead is ridiculous. Franchise mode is completely gone. I can't even play a season quickly without having to deal with the disappointing "connected career" option. It forces you to pick as a coach or player and you have to go through menu after menu, and pages after pages just to find out simple things like who won a simulated game. NFL 2K14 is what we all need. Nuff said.
