  • Summary: Players on defense can make aggressive or conservative tackles in the open field, with proximity cones displaying the effective range of each. Aggressive tackles can lead to big plays and fumbles, but conservative tackles are more likely to bring the ball-carrier down without giving up extra yards.

    Most changes in a madden in years. Better graphics and player response. can actually use DT,DE power moves and finesse moves this year. not a big change in graphics primarily because 360 Is tapped out just look at the xbox one for all the improvements, but give EA props for pushing 360 to limit without sacrificing game performance and control handling. will hiccup freeze every so often but catches up with its self and solid froze once since playing over 90 games. Presentation is lot more professional this year with a fun training courses that gets you packs for MUT,which has added lots of solo and set building with a great auction site. menu's are much more responsive which erct me in madden 25, mut contract are bought 10,20,50,100 at a time instead of the treated 30min to get contracts one at a time, and they also update your whole starting team with contracts, each card receive a max of 25 contracts and computer handles delectation or you can go in card at a time. What a relief a big 10 for contract issues. There are lots of little tweaks that I love, nothing real big but the little things, the little things have me saying this is a must have over 25. the menu processing alone warms my hart and lowers my blood pressure. a lot of the same verbage some new and still pissit they took out regular music and have not put back in, but the sound is great but would like some five finger death punch. Still must give a TEN for EA listing to a lot of probs we had with Madden 13 and Madden 25 which felt like a beta tests for Madden 15. Expand

    As others Reviews as said this is a lot like Madden 25. You should come to expect this with EA games especially on last gen councils. But it did make positive Changes.

    1. Sliders are back, not having this last year was disappointing, the best gamers need this, this allows to make gameplay more realistic without the need of a patch.
    2. the flow of the game seems to have improved.
    3. What was good from last year is back. Connect franchise yes didn't change much but it was very good why change it?
    4. Gauntlet Mode is fun, and if you need a quick fix of Madden you can do it. No need to do an hour long game.
    5. The newest play calling menu is great. Instead of using formations to find your plays, you can now do it with a strategy. Flood plays work well for me, instead of having to search for one, there is one place I can find them all.

    Mind is an 8/10 for the 360 because it adds some good features but not enough. I think it is worth it even if you have Madden 25.

    One note, as long as EA continues to make last gen games, don't expect big changes.

    Best Madden on the Xbox 360 in years. It is true that it is much different from the newer gen version of Madden, which is a given as the Xbox One and PS4 are a lot more powerful. A lot of people keep saying that this is a "roster update" to Madden 25, this is just simply untrue. On the Xbox 360/PS3 alone there are tons of new features which make the game feel new.

    New Features: TACKLING CONE!, very expansive and great Ultimate Team Mode, Gauntlet mode, New kicking maneuvers, as well as adding the LT precise moves from Madden 25 next gen games.

    Cons: They took away online team play, oh well.

    Missing from this gen that is in next gen: Camera lock on defense, the new All 22 camera, Improved player models, and some of the newer commentary/ Halftime coverage.

    Overall this is a solid Madden game for the Xbox 360, in my opinion the best out yet. The new tackling cone is a welcomed feature which I hope stays on to future iterations of the franchise.

    I deeply enjoy football and Madden no-matter what year. Now saying this i loved Madden 25, when buying Madden 15 i expected more game modes besides connected careers, and MUT. I wish their there was a mode where you can play as a retired player that came back like Brett Farve. I also expected better updated graphics or different graphic style to make this years game stand out. the only thing updated graphics wise was the shadows and helmets. Where as the next gen has a full overhaul vs Madden 25 sigh... Its still a great fun football game to play solo or with friends, all i wish was that i had more game modes to justify the $60.00 price.

    I don't so much mind that it looks almost identical to M25, the issue I have is that every single time that I try to look at the statistics after a game, it freezes to the point I have to shut down and everything is LOST! So bloody frustrating!
    If I avoid going to that screen, it's fine otherwise, but I LOVE seeing stats after the game and I cannot! :(

    I just got this game as I was so excited, but it is NEARLY THE SAME EXACT THING as madden 25. What is different? Well i haven't played too much, but i know that a bit of connected franchise, gauntlet mode, camera views, different plays, and where it shows you how to aim the kick. THAT IS IT. I do not recommend getting it for xbox 360 however if you get it for xbox one, i have heard it is good. If you have a xbox 360 and you have madden 25. Expand

    This game is a rip off every year I get it...I was excited when I heard that ea improved the defensive gameplay..However its the exact same!!! The defensive adjustments rarely work....Since its so easy to drive down the field and score, most online games come down to who has the ball last..Scoring an 80 yard TD run might make u lose the game b/c you left 2 minutes for your opponent to drive down the field...After a while I felt more like I was playing a slot machine then playing an actually football game..The computer generates random MAKE or BREAK plays like kickoff returns for TDs, fumbles, and bad throws. These would be alright if the games were longer and if defences weren't so easy to score on,,,This game is just flat out boring... Expand
