Madden NFL 15 Review (PS4/XB1)


Madden NFL is a series which has always been under the most intense of microscopes in the sports gaming community. Itís almost like Madden is a Kardashian, with its every move being dissected and broken apart on a level that would make any other sports game crumble.

Despite all of this, Madden does continually give a good and solid NFL experience most years, but is still flawed in one way or another. The past several years we have witnessed Madden fixing one set of problems, only to see a new batch arise from those fixes. I have long said football was a difficult sport to program for, and it certainly stands to reason that is the case. However, despite all of this, Madden sells extremely well and has seemed on the cusp of making it to the level of the elites in our genre for a couple of years ó but it has ultimately been held back by something.

Madden NFL 15 is no different. On one hand, the game is a blast to play. On the other, itís an, ahem, "maddening" experience.

OS stretches ratings, so a 7.5 here isn't the equivalent to a 7.5 on like IGN.

Chris even said he usually rates a little lower. This looks solid.

A 7.5 actually IS Good (almost great) on our scale. We don't grade things like college papers.

Not to me. I fully expect them to patch the QB stats issue, which would probably bump this up a full point, imo.

That is the only thing that has really turned off me to this point.

Thank you for mentioning the sim stats issue. It makes the game pretty much dead in the water for offline cfm players.

I could care less if he gave this a 10 or a 1. If it's fun for me that's all that matters. No review is gonna sway me either way
