Following FIFA's path, EA improved Madden keeping in mind the most important thing: the gameplay. It is deep, interaction is great, the action bring to an experience that you can feel in any other sport title of the publisher. There wasn't the hurry to find something new with Madden, but the work done is great anyway.
In my previous review, I bashed this installment. mentioning it was better than the Wii version, but not by much. I based that review purely on the Superstar mode, which I still believe isn't the best. But after playing franchise mode, I take back everything I said about the game. It really brings you back to the old Madden. (Old as in 2004-2008) It's very Nostalgic to long time players whom have played the newer Maddens.
This is a very fun, fast paced, action packed game, but not your typical shoot'em action. It is very fun, but there are little features from the previous maddens that bring this down a little like just giving your character stats instead of playing the game and seeing how good the PLAYER is. The superstar menu is boring just like a regular menu and doesn't have the little things like personas or pro-bowl ballots. The multiplayer doesn't work either because EA is to cheap to keep anything up for long. I bet they're preparing to shut down Battlefield Bad Company 2' s servers down right now, which is still a really good game.
While this latest effort has its share of missteps, it's still the best Madden in recent memory. Gameplay is king, and Madden NFL 10 is plain and simple a hell of a lot of fun to play. This is a must-have for football fans.
While the slower pace might cause some of the more hardcore fans of the series to take issue, it allows those not completely at home with the control scheme to finally be able to pull off some technically impressive plays, making it one of the most accessible Maddens yet.
Madden NFL 10 may not have taken huge leaps and bounds forward, but the game does build on last years solid instalment. Tweaks in a few key areas, most notably the games AI mean the game provides a more realistic and fluid experience of the NFL.
Madden NFL 10, like every installment, makes further strides toward looking as glossy and polished as any high-definition Sunday-afternoon football broadcast. Which could be to blame for the series’ ongoing stagnation. Watching football and playing football are dramatically different, and over the last 21 years, EA seems to have forgotten that.
Great game. Definitely better than 09 and the earlier games. Movement is good, the overall flow of the game is good. There is some issues with the momentum and how you can go for a tackle facing the opposite direction and it will teleport your character to the ball carrier sometimes. Great game overall.
It's pretty standard. Not much different from all of the other games. The multiplayer is pretty bad because you will get disconnected from lobbies too much and it's not too enjoyable. I also don't like you can't play 2v2. The superstar mode is just horrible. My ego is always big headed and they will start you as a starter even if you're a rookie, which I suppose would be funner than not playing at all. It's just not really too realistic. It's an OK football game and probably the best for it's time, but not very good. It's a buy if you want a football game, but it's far from amazing.
Madden 10 is over all the best madden ever, but playing against the computer in madden mode is a complete joke!!!!!!! wide receivers can't catch the computer intercepts almost ever throw!!! it totally ridiculous
SummaryExperience first-hand what it's like to Fight for Every Yard in Madden NFL 10. With the all-new Pro-Tak animation technology, players have more control over the outcome of each play. Whether driving a receiver towards the first down, or battling for a fumble at the bottom of a pile, the play won't end until the whistle blows. Add to that...
