Quite possibly the worse version EVER

It's the first day of the season and still no updated rosters. The glitches are numerous. Let's hope and pray that this exclusive license with the NFL ends soon because EA SPORTS is literally holding us hostage with this crap franchise. EA, you should be ashamed of yourself.

Almost identical as 17

The game has way smoother menus than last year, it's fast and quick instead of slow and laggy when switching menu screens.. that's the only difference really that I noticed from last year. Still glitches in the game that have existed for years for example, you can throw 4 TD passes in a game, and a stat menu pops up during the game saying you threw none.. Other glitches include penalty yardage, it can be 1st and 10,, you get a clipping penalty, then the next play it's 1st and 16.. if you sim, the kicker misses the extra point half the time, you can't challenge plays like a catch that looks to hit the ground...if you throw towards the sideline, your receiver slides out of bounds. bottom line don't expect anything new. The NFL exclusive license needs to expire, Madden is STALE.....THEY TRIED TO HIDE MY REVIEW

Online is still cancer

MUT & Online is still catered towards 10 year-olds who spam money plays and max out daddy's credit card to buy the best team. I get that 90% of the Madden fanbase is squeaking toddlers who have never watched a football game before but it's a real slap in the face to real football fans that just want to enjoy an NFL game without having to play against these clowns.

Basic Trash... I will not be fooled again

As usual I fell for the Madden trap, nothing has changed! Waste of money, even with the engine change the game looks the same as it has for the last 6 years... Again no superstar mode, as the case for the last 6 years connected franchise is recycled with no additions. Same XP system, same scouting system (which I find boring and not realistic). Their new game mode Longshot is kind of cool though, for the five hours.. unfortunately it only last 5 hours! You don't even play one NFL game during it NOT ONE! The story was good, boring at times. But there is no payoff! Oh wait, it's another opportunity to shove MUT down our throats! something you make more money on. Also why does it always seem like dominate 95+ players make no difference at all? I will not buy another Madden until they recieve better FAN ratings, change some actual gameplay, and rid themselves of connected franchise for actual separate well done game modes. Oh not shoving ultimate team down our throats would be nice too.

Trash AI (in multiple aspects), Trash player ratings playing as their actual rating shows (player with 92 speed getting ran down open field by a 80 speed guy...), Trash blocking asignments, Trash cheese plays, Trash CFM, Trash story, Trash gameplay, Trash glitches, Trash penalties, Trash ect. Overall, can be summed up as "TRASH". Ya'll aren't even trying anymore. EA, give up your exclusive rights so we can get some actual innovation. Make us WANT to buy your game again, not just because we have to if we want to play football...

False promoting by EA.They have removed 30 or more 1 star reviews just this week its been a daily thing since the game launched my review has been removed at least 8 times.They can fix the reviews to favor selling the game.They need to fix the game issues.Thats how to get better reviews. So do your job EA. In a football game player physcis and gameplay should be 1st priority then the graphics . The reason why is if the game plays terrible nobody will see the graphics because they wil give up on your game. Does anyone at EAsports play or even test the game before realease. So in maybe 10 yers you might build us a new game not an 80 dollar dlc . Lameshot is just a short tell tale story what waste of time its a football game not tell tale .It should have been sold as a dlc at best .Try putting a game out every 5 years only since you idiots at EA are just selling a new cover your not sellin a new game . Then sell a 20 dollar DLC that updates rosters . Until you build a real new game.

Will they ever figure it out?

After all these years one would think a company like EA would be able to make a game with a remotely realistic physics engine especially on a game-type that is designed to be realistic. Seriously tired of being lied to and tricked into buying a $60 roster update every year.

Glad I read reviews and played the trial first

Once again EA has drug us into a game that is no different from the previous years. I sat here reading all the reviews and 9/10 were negative, all made factual arguments to the game. I'm officially deciding not to purchase Madden until I see some REAL improvements.

Does EA ever test these games!!!

This is what happens when there's no competition Bring back NFL Fever. So here we go, QBs over and under throw open receviers sometimes by 5 to 10 yards way to often. WRs will catch the ball and then drop the ball like hes trying to throw the game to pay off his gambling debt. Blockers refuse to block players and actively runs away from them like they have cooties. DONT BUY THIS GAME ITS TRASH!!!

Huge Bummer

This version of Madden was extremely disappointing. The usual glitches and AI logic issues persist that will never be fixed. The "career mode" was a complete waste of time, and I was personally very excited for it prior to release. It ends right after the draft, and you can't play as your character in franchise mode. It was truly a dull and extraordinarily boring mess. This game was hyped by EA as a huge visual improvement over previous years, but overall this game has the feel of not much more than Madden 17 with a roster update. Longshot is literally one of the most disappointing gaming experiences i have ever encountered. Screw you EA, you truly suck.
