Madden NFL 15 is going to hit the stores on 26th of August, but the reviews of the game have already started to roll in and it looks like that the game has managed to win over the reviewers this time around.
First review that we mention is of GameInformer and they have given the latest entry in the popular series a score of 8/10.
Sports games like Madden are often chided for being too iterative, but in this case I hope we’re witnessing the first steps in a larger progression. Future Maddens need to support Madden 15’s additions so we don’t wonder why once-prominent features haven’t evolved. The series can’t withstand another rebuilding year or worse – an entire console generation thrown away.
A new coat of paint, a ton of actionable analytic data, solid improvement in the trenches, and the extension of two popular modes makes Madden NFL 15 a winner.
Cheat Code Central: 4.3/5
Ultimate decision time. Madden NFL 15 could be skipped, but you’d really dislike yourself if you missed out on all the good this year’s installment brings. So stop debating, stop delaying, stop procrastinating and get your copy–you’ll be glad you did. See you on the field!
Madden NFL 15 is an enjoyable football game on the surface, but its dragged down by a thousand little issues, including a poor interface, odd glitches, the inability to skip certain cutscenes, and more. As nice as it is to see it take a step forward in terms of accessibility, it still has a ways to go before catching up with the likes of FIFA and NBA 2K.
New defensive-line play and more defining accuracy with QBs highlight some of the many changes this year’s Madden brings to the table. Unfortunately, not all the other tweaks are nearly as successful.
Madden NFL 15 is the best the series has looked and played in years, and is very close to coalescing into something truly impressive. One or two more years under these new consoles and more changes like those featured this year, and Madden just might reclaim its old glory.
While some quirks like the announcers being repetitive or the defense being very hard to score off on at first take some getting used to, they can’t overshadow what EA has done with this edition of Madden.
Playing EA’s latest football game has brought this Sports nut back to loving sports games again and whether you’re new, left the genre like me or a seasoned Madden player you’ll love this game.
