The mode lets you shape your story as a quarterback, wide receiver, running back, or (for the first time ever) a linebacker striving to reach NFL superstardom and become more than the game. You’ll start out prepping for the NFL and experiencing flashbacks to your most pivotal college football moments. You’ll then take the stage on Draft Day and begin the once in a lifetime NFL journey, playing every game of your rookie season, rising to the top all based on the choices you make. An all-new Player Class and progression system also lets you choose your skills, ratings, and unique attributes with even more customization options to realistically craft your avatar. You can also level up this year by sharing progression between The Yard and the all-new Face of the Franchise: Unite We Rise, so you never miss a beat.

    Madden is a billion dollar franchise that has grown content. Thanks to its exclusivity deals, EA takes zero risks and fumbles each year providing us rehashed versions of previous entries. Madden NFL 22 is no different. Meager improvements are outweighed by series fatigue. Instead of focusing on giving us polished gameplay mechanics and an improved Franchise Mode, EA's focus is divided into unwelcome modes like Face The Franchise and The Yard leading to an overall incomplete and broken experience.

Gameplay isEA once again proves why they should NOT have the exclusive NFL license. Minimal changes to all game modes including franchise. Gameplay is horrible with the same animations that have been in the games for multiple years now. Just a sorry excuse for a Football game and another waste of $60 :/ Expand

That being said the game mode that gets the mostI’ve been a 5 year ultimate team player and I spend close to $1000 every year if not more. That being said the game mode that gets the most attention gets worse every single year. Everything is dependent on animations. Now I quit playing head to head 2 years ago because cheese and meta imbalances. running the same code since 07. Solo battles have turned to a rage fest as players with 5 less speed are now faster than you. I can’t do it anymore it’s terrible. Save your $$$$Now solo batid Expand

    Literally Madden 21 with more glitches (somehow) than ever. It’s a disgrace that EA is the only company able to make an NFL simulation video game.

    Slightly better than Madden 21 because they brought back a bare bones coaching staff with coaching trees. However, there is still just so muchSlightly better than Madden 21 because they brought back a bare bones coaching staff with coaching trees. However, there is still just so much wrong with this game. They copy and paste, but, do so badly. The game is sluggish, and it's do in part to errors like having the last several years background animation under the current animation. Hard to describe in a comment, but I'm sure you can find a video on it. Madden does the bare minimum, even the franchise interface is copy and pasted from the EA Sports NHL game. They did more this year because of how badly they were called out last year with a .2 user score. You can't create a team. There hasn't been new relocation teams for several years. It's just bad. On top of that, the developers mock and belittle customers. They block users that voice they don't like the game. EA sports will ignore critical responses.

    I just don't get it. I think the developers are lazy and don't care about the game they produce. I wish they would get some passionate people to work on their staff.

    Another year, another under achieving Madden. Same old story. If you pay full price for this game, you're an idiot
