Madden NFL 18: NFL Football Finally Back On The Console

  • NFL football is still not on TV, but at least finally back on the console. And a clear sign that the fan communities and communities around the NFL are constantly growing and thriving in English-speaking countries.

     

     

    Game Styles

     

    EA divides the game mechanics into three areas for the first time: Arcade, Simulation and Competitive. In arcade style, spectacular big plays are not uncommon, while the gameplay in simulation mode is more like a real NFL game.

     

    If you play Madden 18 against friends online, the game will automatically switch to competitive mode. Here, the skills on the controller in the center. In this mode also another innovation becomes clear: Maneuvers such as the Juke-Move, Hurdle or Stiff Arm are of greater importance at Madden 18, because the right movement can make the opponents run much more effectively into the void.

     

    If the special maneuvers at Madden 17 were more decorative, they really have an impact on the gameplay.

     

    Longshot

     

    The biggest change is the story mode that some sports fans might already know from FIFA. In the best role-playing style you slip into the role of an American talent that wants to make it over the stony detour of the Regional Combines in the NFL.

     

    Not only the mini-game-simulated sessions at Lucas Oil Stadium are important. Your behavior outside the training area is also closely monitored. If you start a fight, are always late on appointments, or otherwise cause some stress, that will have a negative effect on your scouting report. If you can motivate others or settle the arguments of other players, there are pluses.

     

    You make the decisions by deciding on key moments for one of several alternatives. The story mode is an atmospheric, very atmospheric addition to the existing game modes. This is not least ensured by performances by legends like Dan Marino.

     

    MUT Squads

     

    The popular MUT (Madden Ultimate Team) mode has also been drilled out: MUT Squads now allow you to play online matches in 3-on-3 mode. One player takes the offense, one the defense and one takes over the role of the coach.

     

    The new mode is fun, but you should compete with 2 friends. Playing along with unknown online gamers can dampen their gameplay as they follow their own agendas and downplay their boots. In any case play with a headset, so you can vote.

     

    Target Passing

     

    If you want to have more control over the passes and the routes, you should try the new Target Passing. Instead of hitting directly on a player, you use the right stick of the controller to determine where the ball should land. This is indicated by a cursor. So you can, for example, serve the passport receiver in full run or you throw the pill shorter so that the wide receiver has to turn around to catch the ball.

     

    Even precise passes to the sideline or the back corner of the end zone are possible. But beware! This type of control is demanding and needs getting used to. Until you're feeling really good, you'll be throwing passes for which even Johnny Manziel would laugh at you.

     

    Less Speed - Better Blocks

     

    And otherwise? What immediately stands out is the lower tempo on the turf. Moves develop more slowly, especially in terms of running game is extremely helpful. You can now use Blocks much better, because you have time to read them better. Instead of just jacking full steam ahead like Madden 17, you can see if and where gaps are opening up that you can use with your running back.

     

    This makes Madden 18 a much more realistic and better gaming experience. At the AI EA has also screwed. Example: Put the QB out of the pocket to the run, actively blocking your players where you run. At Madden 17, this was more random, with some of the AI colleagues idly watching as their playmaker was dismantled by the Defense.

     

    Crashing two players onto each other, now stature and weight of athletes play bigger roles. The defensive end tackles much more safely than a smaller defensive back. This also contributes to a higher realism. The referees are much pettier with tackles against the QB than with Madden 17. The result: There are more penalties in the category "Roughing the Passer".

     

    All in all, Madden NFL 18 offers so many interesting, motivating and meaningful innovations both on and off the field that there is no way around Madden for friends of interactive entertainment in 2017.
