Get In the Game with Madden 17
Football is back so, Let the Madden-ess Begin! There are so many new features to Madden 17, I don’t know where to begin!
Overall, I really enjoyed the gameplay and the graphics are really sharp. Most of the controls and in-game menus are the same, but the kicking controls are actually completely different and it took some time getting used to them. You’ll soon find out that field goals aren’t as automatic as they used to be.
There’s a new “player momentum” feature that doesn’t allow you to turn on a dime without slowing you down or sending you out of bounds. Say your player is catching a ball while heading towards the sideline, you gotta slow down to make sure that he gets both feet in-bounds!
EA Sports has added a lot of new features to the defensive side of the ball too. The number of zone coverages has now jumped up to 13. You’ll also find a host of new blitz packages and different ways to “key in” on opposing receivers. Plus, it’s easier than ever to make those changes prior to your opponent hiking the ball.
However, my favorite new feature is called Play the Moment. it allows you to simulate most of a game and you watch the progression in a quick play-by-play graphic. When the sim stops, it puts your right in the middle of the action when it’s time for a pivotal play of the game. This is a great way to go through a season and leave your mark in a shorter amount of time.
I really enjoy the Madden franchise, not only because I love football, but I love competing with my friends (win or lose). This is a must purchase game in the franchise! Get your copy today.
