Madden NFL 19
The game is visually appealing and plays pretty well though I do have a few jitters here and there with what seems to be FPS drops even though it is showing 100+, this shouldn’t be happening on my system. The real motion running is very fun and makes you feel closer to the action, but once again the AI is pathetic. They drop easy catches, run into traffic, don’t follow routes, miss tackles etc.(Standard Madden issues that have never been resolved)
As normal with EA, their main focus is micro-transactions and MUT does it’s best to persuade you to part with additional money, even though they are charging £55 for the base game and £70 for the HoF edition. (Origin Access Premier would be wise if you plan on playing other EA games, as you get 50k coins in MUT) On the whole, I find MUT to be packed with content and coins can be earned very easily, so as of now, there is no real need to part ways with real money to upgrade your team.
Franchise mode is still very bare and wish it had the level of content/management 2K brings to the NBA series.
Longshot is EA trying to create a B movie and is not worth your time unless you want a few custom uniforms for MUT in the end.
Overall, I think it’s a fairly good return to PC and I am so glad to be able to play Madden again, but I would like to see more content in the game and a bigger focus on the other game modes, we all know EA make their billions from Ultimate Team, but it would be nice for some of that be invested elsewhere in the game.
