      I pre-ordered this title and picked it up on midnight launch from my local store. I'd read a ton of reviews saying this years Madden is more than a roster update, that they had done some major overhauls on Franchise mode, the defensive AI and the running game. Now that I've logged a good 40+ hours into the games various modes, for anyone on the fence I thought I'd give you some honest feedback. a. Running Game - Yes it's been changed quite a bit, unfortunately if you've played past games, it's going to be a major learning curve for you. You first must unlearn most of your running tactics (when to juke, what to do to break a tackle) thanks to the new mini game when contact is made. Clicking the correct button on the screen can result in your player breaking a tackle. If you are like me, used to clicking X to stiff arm, or trying to juke out of a tackle, you'll have to retrain yourself never to do this, otherwise you will find you just lose every minigame. 2. Defensive AI - This is the big issue, hopefully it gets fixed in subsequent patches, but at launch there are 2 major problems. A. In multiplayer games, there is a glitch that allows you and your opponent to see whether the offense is running or passing. Makes multiplayer games basically pointless at this time. B. In Franchise mode games, All Madden difficulty results in every QB throwing at least 90% accuracy, and there is a bug in the code that EA has acknowledged that results in huge amounts of fumbles. Check Youtube for multiple vids of 10+ fumbles in a game. C. Franchise Overhaul - Yea... No. It looks almost exactly like last years did. This year there is more emphasis on weekly training drills, but in reality, you just need to get a Gold Medal on a drill, then sim it for each week to get the full bonus. Secondly, they added a Practice Squad system, but it's really just a waste of time. Your practice squad players get almost no development points, any good ones will get poached by opposing teams immediately, and you'll find that you wasted your time moving them there, only to cut them the following year. All in all, if you like Madden, you'll probably buy this game. I bought this title using Best Buy's trade in, and honestly I wish I'd just kept last years Madden. The running game was more uniform to the series as a whole, there were far less glitches (fumbling, any QB>90% completion ratings, Multiplayer play reveal). Good luck.

      Madden 17 is polarizing. Although it had its fair share of problems, Madden 16 was one of the best entries in the long-running series of EA NFL football games in many years and frankly the most fun I've had with a Madden game to date. This year's game builds on the success of 16, while feeling quite different as well. Initially, I found the game frustrating and difficult, which leads me to my main point. Stick with it! The developers have introduced lots of new defensive zone concepts and layers of control that ramp up the complexity of the gameplay. While this can be difficult to adjust to for new players, ultimately it's a better game for it. Practice, practice, practice. This year's Madden forces you to learn these concepts to be able to compete at a moderate to high level. If you come across someone that knows their stuff, you will know it relatively quickly and find it difficult to succeed unless you can also "play the game of chess" that football can be. The game offers many tutorials to help you improve your decision making and play-calling and spending time with them is crucial to your enjoyment of the mid to high level play (especially online). Draft Champions, Ultimate Team, and Franchise Mode all return with minor improvements for those that are interested. The game looks and runs well, albeit with some far too frequent server disconnects online as of the first few weeks. There's the usual glitches and questionable results on certain plays that are inevitable, but ultimately they don't ruin the flow of the game. The new commentary team, while a little bland, offer a much better call of the game when it comes to details on play by play and in season storylines with an impressive frequency of updates that add new lines throughout the year. Gameplay is still king this year, which is all that really matters. Madden 17 steps up the competition by bringing players closer to a real NFL play-calling experience that offers a challenge and demands its users practice and learn to find success. No more throwing the ball up on every play. Mix up your plays and read the defense like actual football. There's fun to be had for the casual and hardcore players alike. If you get frustrated, don't be so quick to blame the game until you figure out why you're struggling. I stuck with it and am now enjoying the game much more. Madden should do a lot of things better, but with only 8 months to make the game every year, it's hard to blame the developers who clearly care and try their best. Madden 17 is a solid entry in the series and an overall improvement over last year's game. If you're looking for some fun and challenging simulation football to enjoy during the upcoming season, go ahead and pick this one up.

      Graphics are hardly an upgrade, if at all. Running seems more difficult, although my buddy disagrees. Passing is so fast you can hardly defend the way you could in 16. I normally try to find positives but I really can't understand how the reviews for this one are so high, 16 was infinitely better, as frustrating as it was in its own right. My overall opinion is the outcome of online matchup comes down to dumb luck on plays so fast you can hardly make a skillful decision, and I was in the top 5% over a year in online matchmaking in 16 so I believe my impression is informed and more or less unbiased. Was hoping for more, now I'm hoping the contract with EA ends sooner so 2K can step in and set a new status quo like they do with NBA games. 3 stars is for changing the music more often, the BS commentators from 16 being no more, and more frequent updates, and I feel that's even too generous of a rating. Gronk on the cover is worthy of 1 star lost on its own, although I didn't do that here. Good riddance EA, catch on to the fact that people will buy your games even if the only thing you changed was graphic improvements, and even that is essentially void here compared to 16. Wish I could be more positive here.

      My hats off to the development team on Madden 17. So far so very good! This is the first version in a real long time that I can honestly say, I cannot wait to get home from work to play. I did not expect the feel of the game to be that much different from 16, but it is and in a real good way. Defense feels much improved, player controls are tight, the running game is awesome. Each running back feels different. Your power backs feel like power backs and your speed threats are just that , fast. They won't run defenders over, as they shouldn't, but watch out if they get past you. Gang tackling and hitting physics look great!! A few clipping instances here and there, but nothing like it was in '15 & '16. The other awesome feature that you might not know about, is that the commentary will be dynamically updating throughout the season, based on real life situations occurring in the NFL. For example, if a undrafted rookie makes a name for himself in week 3, then you will start to hear his name mentioned in the commentary, when before, he would only be mentioned as a #. This is the first time in sports gaming history that this will be occurring! Super cool!!! Get this game!! You will not be disappointed!!

      I had given up on Madden, but after 5 years decided to give it another try. I chose Madden 17 over 18 as it was given better ratings. And I have to admit I like the changes I saw over the last version I played. I like the options to shorten the game and the offseason has a much better flow to it. However, I do have two cons, the number of "clicks" to get to certain information is a bit clunky and when closing said window it takes you all the way back to the menu and you have to start again. Attributes is a good example of this as well as assigning points. The other thing I didn't like was the music. It took a while to figure out how to disable a certain song and when I was finished I was left with a pretty short list. But all in all I have been enjoying building my team in Franchise mode.

      So madden 17 For anyone who wants the perfect Madden experience grab a copy of Madden 16. This was a perfect balance of everything great you want in a football game. From graphics, gameplay, player face-presentation, etc. Then comes the big bomb in Madden 17 the KICKING GAME!!!!!!!!! The fact that you can miss a 29 yrd field goal is besides me. When was the last time, I lost game to just outright missing easy kicks with a horrific new kicking meter??????? Maybe since 92? This game also went backwards as far as player likeness they look horrible. Yet, last year they looked great? In addition, the sideline now look like Madden 15 instead of 17? Yes, that's not a typo the sideline looks similar to Madden 15 instead of the nice new sidelines they added in Madden16. Overall besides the Color Rush uniforms and new rookie class Madden 17 does not in any way shape or form hold up to its predecessor and has actually taken a step back.

      Best Madden By Far

      Been a lifelong Madden player/critic, but I can definitely say with confidence this game is a step in the right direction. The EA team for madden still lags severely behind in certain categories in comparison to other games, but at least this year it feels like they've made progress, rather than just fixing whats broken. The commentary is on point, the best duo the game has ever had. Releasing commentary updates is the first genius idea I've seen Madden come up with in ages. That is something their game and their game alone does (For now). The presentation is smooth, adding a practice squad to the franchise was a HUGE difference maker. If you aim for realism (like me) no more having to release players the team ACTUALLY has because you dont have enough roster space in the game. As with any sports game, especially Madden, the success hinges on the post-production support. So hopefully they follow through with this and continue improving the game.

      Its a bit cumbersome ... It is Madden so it is fun. The problem though comes in as they try too hard to make it real. Ease off some of the little nuances as it becomes to technical as a game. Its a game I want to play it and not have an issue at all with I have to figure it out. I bought it to play and relax not think so much I get a headache .... It it Madden it will be fun just do not make it so technical. The other thing is make the refs call the game the same way for all teams. The teams people like get called for holding less it is a game and my favorite team whenever I hit a big play gets called for holding ... I have taken screen shots of the Favorite Teams holding and it never gets called when the CPU hits a big play. The CPU calls holding on itself when I sacked them so it did not matter anyway ...
