Madden NFL 18 Retail Impressions

Those of you with the retail version and day 1 patch, what are your impressions?

I've heard there are some improvements to (in)accuracy, QB mobility, and zone coverage.

Re: Retail version impressions

QB mobility is much approved. I didn't find QB accuracy or zone defense to be any different.

Re: Madden NFL 18 Retail Impressions

For anyone interested, here are all my posts from the other impressions thread. Every game I've played has been on the full version in Play Now, Simulation, default All-Madden or All-Pro. With the exception of my very first game every game has been played with 15 minute quarters with play clock runoff to 15 seconds.

Default All-Madden

Re: Madden NFL 18 Retail Impressions

hmm nice notes ill be getting mine later i got the GOAT edition, what scares me is the to easy passing, remember in 17 everyone was passing good then they did that big update patch and the pass was more real.. well i hope they didnt go back to how M17 was before the big patch, I mean we all gotta remember it is a video game but still its nice to keep it as real as possible

I want the attributes to actually mean something and the good teams are good and the bad are bad, etc,

I think madden 17 for the most part did a good job on it.. when i first started with the niners we sucked, i kept track of alot of stuff year by year i did 12 seasons on M17, and we started out crappy as did the real like niners and then i built up the team and we started getting 10-13 wins a season and my overall was usually arounf 86-89

4k looks great with no frame rate sacrifice

sack numbers have been good.

Penalties still need some slider tweaks. Not getting enough.

Injuries were right on point IMO

QB accuracy slider I dropped to 20 and am getting good numbers. On default it was pretty bad.

I know others aren't having this problem but the CPU still lacks a competent run game. It's better than it's been but still not great. I held the CPU to less than 25 yards a game in my first 3 games and one of those games was against David Johntson and I'm the Colts.

What does the fumble slider do???? You think that will affect the way running backs run?
