Madden NFL 15
Like Madden 25, but more broken
If you liked Madden 25, we have good news. The same animations, play flow, menus, commentary and audio made it into Madden 15. However, if you like franchise mode look elsewhere. If your team doesnt make 10-6 every year, then your team will be losing money. This is a problem considering that created owners only start with 3 million. If you play with a downtrotten team (like me, unfortunately Buffalo born) and you simulate a majority of the games (its no fun going 16-0 by beating the computer 20 times a season) then be prepared to start over every two seasons. Your team will lose 5 million dollars a season unless you A) cut all players with over an 80 overall or B) finish every year over 10 wins. On top of this, scouting difficulty has been bumped to 13. You will not be able to scout any overalls and determining player ability seems to be random. This is the most disappointed I have ever been in Madden. I say that as having played every iteration since 2004.This is the worst it has been.
Why Madden 15 is an awesome football game
So I have been reading alot of different reviews about this game as well as watching gameplay on youtube. I decided at that point to download 60 dollar microsoft cash card from gamestop and I bought Madden 15. After downloading the game, I started playing Madden 15 and I couldnt stop playing. The presentation is awesome especially with the all 22 camera where you can see alot on the field. The lighting in the game has improved on the field and has made the game look more realistic. The kicking arch has made kick offs and punts alot more fun because now you can really pin point where you want the football land. The gaming engine has improved in this years madden game. Ea made a smart move with putting the impact gaming engine in madden 15 this year. It makes the game run smoother in my opinion. The defense is really made a difference in this game. What I mean is the fact in connected franchise if your defense is amazingly awesome you can stopped the offense but if your defense is terrible you really arent going to be able to stop the offense. The commentary has improved this year in my opinion which is a good thing and same with putting in game prep. All in all this game is alot better than Madden 25 but that is just my opinion. I'll leave it up to you.
It is the best madden game to date.
When I first played this I noticed two new modes, Ultimate Team and Connected Franchise. I thought it was the best mode ever because you get to collect players and build your team out of them. Connected Franchise was O.K. It's basicly franchise but it lets you be an owner, coach, or player. Each one is different in gameplay but is still fun. You will have a great time playing it if you love madden or, if you are a new fan.
The same thing every year...
Madden is just like COD. Mobs of 10k-100k people fork out $60 evrey year to buy the exact same thing. the graphics are absolutely spontaneous (synonyms:horrendous, awful, bad, poor, brutal). I played quite a few maddens already, and guess what!?! IT WAS THE SAME EXACT THING OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER...
Ten years later...
... AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Madden 13's graphics were slightly better than those of E.T for the Atari 2600. Alright, I'm exaggerating, but seriously, madden 13's graphics were slightly better than madden 2003's graphics. Oh! I forgot to tell you that there had been no graphical improvements since madden 13! Gameplay is the same boring old thing over and over again. I know PS1 games with better graphics than this! I'M WARNING YOU! DON'T SPEND YOUR VALUBLE $60 ON THIS PEICE OF REPETIVE HARDWARE!
DO NOT BUY! Update Madden 25 instead
I made the mistake of buying the roster update they pawn off as a new game. Nothing has changed since madden 25 other than the "cone" (woopty doo). Other than that you are getting a COPY OF MADDEN 25. Trust me and do not make the mistake I did, you will be very disappointed.
this game is awesome.
this game makes it look like you are right there as a person who can control there own team.boom crash.
I really like madden 25 it was a really fun game especially when it come to running game this year with them working more on defense i hope there will be more tackle animations and i hope they fix the speed on some d-lineman i always get chased down by them when my player has a high speed rating. I also hope it will be funner usering safetys, dbs, and linebackers. I feel like it will be a GREAT game.
Money well wasted - Robbed
If you liked Madden 25 then you will like Madden 15 because it is the same freaking game. Okay so the menus look different ultimate team has some new rewards and some of the story lines are different for franchise. Other than the updated rosters which you could easily get by downloading them from the community in Madden 25. The game is exactly the same. Same animated tackles, same commentary, same preplay adjustments. Save your money. EA should refund everyone that bought this game. I bought the game on its release like every year played about 10 games the first day and have yet to put it back in my 360.
same old madden.
Its a fun game to play, no doubt, but in connected careers for simulating it takes wayyyyy to long. One option is to sim for ten years which seems cool, but when i did it, it literally took 6 hours for 10 seasons. Also in the trailer for it, the graphics look sooo much better, but the graphics on xbox 360 for madden has been the same ever since madden 13. i would recommend getting this game for xbox one or ps4, if you like seeing realistic graphics. The best features this year in madden 15 is defense. its a lot of fun for defense this year, and its easier to play defense. Hope that helped madden buyers out there. Broncos Rule. PEACE..
It's really in the game.
This game is probably going to be a step up from the overall physics in Madden 25. (anniversary) I'm looking forward to what EA Sports has in store for next year's Madden.
