The new Madden 15 dropped in stores August 26th across the U.S. Millions of people lined up to get their hands on it. With Richard Sherman on the cover, how could anyone not want it?
The game came out on most consoles, and the gaming experience blows Madden 25 out of the water. With the new connected franchise mode, you can play franchise with other friends and experience the point of views from a player, coach ,and even franchise owner. Not to mention the people’s favorite game mode, ultimate team. When you start ultimate team, it allows you to choose which play style is the best for the player you can pick from:
Short pass- Which gives the line better pass blocking, and gives the receivers the talent to catch the ball in traffic.
Long pass- which gives the line better pass blocking, and allows the receivers to have the chance of beating their defenders in man defense when running routes.
Ground and Pound- Allows the line to stay on their run blocks longer, and the running back will be better at knocking down defenders.
Speed Run- Allows the line to stay on their run blocks longer, and makes the running back harder to take to the ground.
Zone Defense- The opposing team is less likely to fall for play action, and defenders will better protect their zones.
Man Defense- The opposing team is less likely to fall for play action, and defense will be better matched up on man defense.
Pass Rush- The defensive line will break off blocks easier, and defenders will keep better coverage on the ball.
Run Stuff- The defenders will be more efficient tacklers, and the defense line will break off blocks easier.
Other than the play styles, the game graphics are unbelievable. With the newly created Next Gen system, the graphics are the closest you can get to realistic in our world today. Compared to Madden 2025, the gameplay has changed a lot; this can be seen right when you start the game. The kickoff run backs and even the quarterback play is more realistic to how the game is played today. Yes, the game still has powerhouse players such as Marshawn Lynch and Tavon Austin who are extremely fast with the ball. Overall, the game is geared to be faster, better, and more fun than any of the ones before it.
