Even with the "sometimes" high completion percentage this game is beautiful.

Wow...please tell me a couple of things ..

First EA and itís ďEliteĒ minds took out a spectate mode (Cpu vs Cpu) some years ago..now you have to use the workaround slow sim..I assume thatís what your using

Are you experiencing this gameplay in Play Now or Franchise? (No auto sub formations -still broken in Franchise)

What are your settings ?

Are running backs using their abilities such a as -Trucking- stiffarms- jukes..are they breaking tackles and or juking people making them miss?

I saw none of this all backs ran generic and ran into tacklers and fell down..

I would love to start playing Madden again as I slow sim all my games.

I have been purchasing Madden for over twenty years IMO this is the worst version since ..maybe Iím missing something ..

Re: My apologies but, this the best Madden ever!

I can definitely attest to the merits of slow sim cpu vs cpu gameplay (mind you I'm still on Madden 20). The game definitely plays differently when its cpu vs cpu instead of user vs cpu. You can have a pretty solid experience on All Pro with default sliders. There are some quirks (CPU timeout logic, QB pocket presence, etc).

I'm glad that someone else enjoys this style of play as well. Turns the franchise into a GM experience. The X-Factors and Breakout scenarios (despite their flaws), allow for players to emerge from out of no where (ex. player has normal dev, has some good games and performs well in the breakout scenarios, can become a superstar). There is an element of luck/randomness that makes the mode more interesting IMO.

Glad you all are enjoying it, but for the majority who actually play the game its weak as water!

Re: My apologies but, this the best Madden ever!

The whole CPU v CPU thing baffles me, but whatever...

But I agree...this Madden is really good.

1. Strong CPU QB play
2. Outstanding coverage dynamics (depending on the user's mental skills and player ratings)
3. Great run game
4. solid injury/penalty dynamics

I really think this is the best Madden from a gameplay standpoint. The lack of innovation in CFM is the only huge con for me, but the gameplay is so good this year that I can live with it.

Re: My apologies but, this the best Madden ever!

I fired up 21 as I put it aside for 20.

I really really tried to see the great gameplay everyone here is talking about. Really tried.

Back to 20..

Maybe it’s me ..or maybe it’s my settings.. but it’s awfully arcade and the ball carrier generic running is painful.

Hoping for PS5 and a football game from Madden.

IMO, it's the best Madden ever with a controller in your hand as well.

It's unfortunate to me that people, in a lot of posts, feel the need to have to "apologize" for feeling that this is a great or even the best playing Madden ever. That says a lot about of the tenor of a community.

Do the same thing tomorrow. And the next. Now do it forever.

Itís natural... itís pretty widely accepted now this isnít a good product especially considering they are the ďsimĒ experience. Letís be honest no other games gets SIM stats in franchise this off. Your cover athlete literally doesnít play like himself (I know he does in gameplay) thereís glitches like formation subs in franchise that make people who try to mimic real life With the extra strategy canít do. Gameplay wise the AI coverage is just... I have no words. So. Many. Gaps. Thatís arcade. The list goes on but most people know and acknowledge these flaws.

Bottom line tho, yeah whatever side you fall on opinion wise for madden who cares. If someone enjoys it thatís good. No one should be mad at that. Also if people are trying to express valid criticism over a to most subpar product then who cares as well. Itís not going to hurt your experience. Just open threads you know wonít trigger you. Boom problem solved.
