Maddening

Ugh, what did they do to Madden? I can't say I've been a fan of this franchise for a few years despite being a hardcore NFL fan (and former Madden fanatic), but this iteration further cements the fact that EA Sports has little left in the tank when it comes to innovating and improving this franchise. Elements of this game feel broken, particularly pass defense. How a quarterback can complete 10 straight passes consistently despite pass coverage plays is beyond me. The graphics are the definition of "meh" and scream of a next-gen rush launch rush job. If you're into Ultimate Team or online leagues, I guess there's some meat for you but it's hard to dig in when the gameplay is shoddy. This is a stuttery mess of a game that should be avoided unless you absolutely have to play football.

Nothing special.

I honestly didn't see anything special with this game. I'm sure many people enjoy creating a player with a 99 overall, but for me, that is lame and should be worked for. I played it for a few hours got some achievements for my time and sent this game back.

Utterly awful

Everything about this game upset me. Failed a crashed 6 times in the first 2 hours, crabby controls and the animations seemed very half hearted for the new Gen. Skip this one, folks. Wait for the next one made solely for the X one.
