    Angry Player's Perspective Glitch-Riddled Franchise Mode

    I wish I could give this game 0 stars. I'm an avid franchise mode player and run my connected franchise leagues. Part of the fun of the franchise is importing custom-created draft classes from the community and having these real-life players in the game. Yet somehow, EA managed to make a glitch affecting these draft classes to where every player is 6'1 and 265 pounds, and I can't edit their height, weight, or gear. This ruins the immersion for me, and frankly, it makes this mode borderline unplayable. I can't see Caleb Williams as being 6'1, 265 pounds, wearing a helmet from 2005, and being even minorly content. "Make or break" year, huh? Looks like you broke it, EA, just like you broke Battlefront and just like you break the hearts of fans of your games because all you care about is money.

    A Monopoly's Impact Bad Quality Experience

    Madden 24 is what I believe we get when a company has a monopoly on something for as long as EA has. I'm sure they love how little they invest in the game and how many copies they sell.

    But they put zero effort into making this the game players want. The franchise mode feels like the Commodore 64 equivalent of franchise modes, with every other sports sim game resembling something modern.

    A funny example of how little effort they put in: Jedrick Wills, the Browns left tackle, is well known for being talented but having issues with motivation and effort. So, what does EA do? They give him the HIGH MOTOR trait! This lack of attention to detail tells me everything I need to know about how EA views this game.

    Perspective on the Haters of Madden NFL Game

    We've got better graphics, fantastic gameplay, a unique franchise that's been updated tenfold, an amazing ultimate team, and training camps that are back and are incredibly fun. There are many more options to keep any football fan engaged for the year! Please don't listen to these haters; I'm 30 hours in now and haven't seen a glitch. Are there glitches? I'm sure there are. This is a football simulator with thousands of moving pieces, after all. When Skyrim came out, it had a horrid amount of glitches and still received high praise.

    If you go back and look at Google reviews, you'll see the same complainers from last year, the year before, and I'm sure many more years... yet somehow they keep buying the game and playing it for hundreds of hours, even though they complain every year! The gameplay and reviews were out before the game came out, and they still complain after they bought it!!! For the haters, I say, "Quit buying the game!" But, of course, you won't because as much as you cry, you still play hundreds if not thousands of hours! It just shows how hypocritical all these one-star losers are!

    An Angry Gamer's Plea

    It's probably the worst football game I've ever played, as the game freezes after every reward. The rewards are all objective-based, but the solos won't load for me. Today, I can't even buy a pack in the marketplace, and I keep getting the message, "If your problem persists, contact EA Help." It's frustrating because EA Help doesn't even work correctly. I can't send them an email or start a live chat.

    They gave away Twitch packs for watching the MCS last weekend, but it crashed a few hours in, and I didn't receive any rewards again. It's time for someone else to step in and make a football game. These developers seem to be selling the exact subpar match yearly, and we don't have any alternatives. Maybe they should focus on creating a playable game instead of constantly pushing out new content four times a week to squeeze more money out of those of us who've already paid for the game.

    In Madden 24 Love Player Control but Yearn for Balance

    I love the player movement in Madden, along with my control over juke, spin, and steering moves. The graphics are top-notch, and the player builds look fantastic. However, some issues need addressing.

    When I play on All-Madden difficulty, the problem remains the same and is still present in Madden 24. The players on my user team seem to play as if they've never seen a football before, almost like they're from a country where the sport is incredibly rare, and they don't even recognize what a football looks like. I wish the game could be more balanced. If the computer can perform at Hall of Fame levels, that's fine, but I want my players to have the same level of capability.

    There's no good reason why some obscure cornerback I've had to look up online can consistently shut down Tyreek Hill throughout the game. Conversely, it's frustrating to see Jalen Ramsey beaten repeatedly by a lesser-known player like Treylon Burks. It's as if player overalls don't mean anything in these situations, which can be incredibly frustrating.

    First Impressions of Madden NFL with Next-Gen Experience

    As someone who has never played Madden NFL with the next-gen experience, I have to say that this game is an absolute blast. The mini-games are incredibly addictive and have me constantly trying to top my high scores. Plus, the Franchise mode is a ton of fun. I appreciate the ability to have six trade slots, and the rookie class in this game features some outstanding players, which makes Franchise mode even more enjoyable. Overall, this game is fantastic and improved over the previous Madden title!

    Frustrations with Music and Gameplay

    I'm frustrated with how video game music has become so dominated by Rap, R&B, and hip-hop. I can't understand why they don't incorporate music from all EA games into each title to provide more variety. It seems like the focus is always on Madden Ultimate Team (MUT) and encouraging players to spend more money on the game. I'm a dedicated franchise mode player, whether in single-player mode or with a group of friends in our custom franchise league. While I appreciate the improvements made to the franchise mode, I still find the overall gameplay experience terrible when facing CPUs in higher-difficulty settings.

    It's incredibly frustrating to call a run defense and repeatedly witness all seven defenders in the box getting blown up or tripping over each other. This doesn't happen just once; it's a recurring issue. On the offensive side, it's equally maddening to see my offensive line consistently overrun by 72 overall pass rushers. The last two years have been a struggle for EA to reach the All-Madden difficulty right. I never encountered this problem in Madden 22 or older versions.

    Interestingly, I even found playing Madden 24 on the PS4 more enjoyable with the same settings compared to playing it on the PS5.

    Sticking with Madden NFL

    The fact that I'm still playing Madden NFL 24 should give you a clear idea of what I think about the game. The Franchise Mode initially hooked me, where I had the chance to create my teams, design unique uniforms, and even build custom stadiums. Even though there were a few glitches when trying to transfer my college players from NCAA 12, I found workarounds to make it work.

    I had always assumed that Madden would follow in the footsteps of NBA 2K, allowing me to expand my league without replacing existing teams and allowing me to design or download new uniforms. A 40-team NFL with an 18-game schedule could have been a seamless experience (and I heard it's on the horizon).

    However, instead of that, what we got were limited relocation options. While I appreciate the inclusion of non-US cities, I can think of at least 20 or 30 American cities that could have been added to the mix.

    And to those who might argue that it would be overwhelming with so many locations, consider that NCAA 14 boasts more than 120 location names and over 250 mascots. So, until Madden gives me a compelling reason to upgrade.

    Fumbling Through Madden NFL 24

    Booting this game up on my PS5 feels like I'm in a long-term relationship with the wrong person. I've reached a point of resentment, but I'm also terrified that I'll never find someone else who can put up with me (2K). So I stick around, hoping for a change, listening to all the hype, building excitement and emotion, but inevitably finding myself in the same position. It's a repeat process...

    But I digress. The Madden NFL game has returned the much-requested and missed superstar mode (a strong internet connection is required). Due to numerous EA server issues, I've enjoyed the 8 hours it has taken me to get to week 3. I've had to scour Reddit for a solution to my in-game lag while playing offline franchise mode. Now, just the cut scenes and replays lag terribly. Again, in offline mode. It was a default console setting that didn't agree with the game.

    The rosters are not current. Superstars like Ezekiel Elliott and Dalvin Cook are still free agents, and it's doubtful that EA will bother updating them, especially when the Madden community takes care of it for them. Madden 24's unfulfilled promises of roster updates seem to reflect the company's lack of care. The slow and clunky user interface makes menu navigation an absolute nightmare unless you have the bandwidth of the gods. Or maybe it's just Mediacom.

    Frustrating Madden NFL 2024

    I've been playing Madden since 2021. It first came out on Xbox. This is the worst football game I've ever seen. I started playing on Friday morning when it was released. I managed to get in 4 Head-to-Head (H2H) games, and throughout those four games, I encountered numerous glitches:

    I couldn't select a play, so I was forced to call a timeout, use one of my three pauses per game, or take a 5-yard penalty before choosing a space.

    When trying to strafe on defense, a menu screen would unexpectedly pop up mid-play, freezing my player. This left me effectively playing ten on 11, and when it happened to my safety, it almost guaranteed an automatic touchdown for my opponent because I couldn't move my player. This happened multiple times and resulted in 6 touchdowns against me in 4 games.

    There were also issues with incorrect audibles. I would call it an audible, and the play that ran differed from the one I had selected.

    Additionally, there were other minor glitches related to tackling that persisted. That afternoon, I requested a refund from Microsoft and uninstalled the game. Fortunately, I got my $80 back the next day.

    Disappointed with Madden NFL 2024

    I typically don't write reviews, but I'm making an exception this year. EA Sports made an intelligent business move years ago by ensuring they had no competition in the market. Unfortunately, despite having a more robust system, I expected significant improvements in the game, but that hasn't been the case. They go all out with their marketing every year – who will be on the cover, who's part of the soundtrack – but the core game, initially built on Franchise Mode, feels outdated for a game released in 2023. I've been a loyal Madden player and customer since the early 2000s, and I've witnessed EA adding, removing, and then re-adding the same features over the years. I can still remember when the field used to get muddy, and the crowd would react by leaving early if you were losing. Those were the days!

    I avoid playing online because everyone tends to use the same overpowered tactics, so I prefer facing the CPU for a more genuine challenge. However, the CPU has its issues. They make every quarterback unrealistically accurate, making it nearly impossible to apply any pressure. The pre-snap menu is flooded with so many options that it's impossible to make adjustments before the ball is snapped. Moreover, tackling the CPU in the open field forces me to switch to the closest player and rely on the CPU to perform the tackle. It can be frustrating at times.

    I could continue listing the issues, but with all the hype about this being a pivotal year for the game, it's turned into a bit of a farce. EA has a cash cow on their hands, and they're fully aware of it. They keep luring people in to shell out money for virtual players and leveraging the popularity of NFL athletes to promote their game. And you know what? There will always be a new wave of folks falling for it next season!

    A Familiar Gameplay Experience with Missed Opportunities

    Although I find the gameplay much improved in Madden 24, I rated it at two stars. Unfortunately, I once again feel like I'm playing a copy and pasted game with a few additional bug fixes and franchise "enhancements." I've only been playing the game for a few hours, but I can already tell that by December, I'll be fed up, and the changes won't feel any more substantial than the additions that were made to Madden 23.

    I often find that we developers sometimes divert our attention towards creating temporary game modes instead of concentrating on what truly counts. I mean, have you ever come across someone who plays superstar mode all year round? I certainly haven't. So, if we want the game to feel distinct and engaging, perhaps we should consider incorporating pre-game commentary, halftime shows, and interactive post-game interviews. It might even be worthwhile to explore the possibility of acquiring the rights to utilize ESPN, CBS, NBC, or Amazon commentary and broadcast features. That could be a promising way to kickstart some exciting changes.

    I'm not sure why they add features to the game to strip them out the year after. It's frustrating to see them take two steps forward with one Madden release and then remove the features they added in the next one, essentially keeping the game in the same state it was the year before. I miss the draft stories and commentary after a selection. And what about making draft day look and feel realistic with stage walk-ups, analysis, and film reviews? Once again, EA developers leave me with more questions than answers.

    For now, I find myself impatiently waiting for the contract to end in 2026 unless some fundamental changes are made to the user interaction and the in-real-life game-day feel is added. I believe I can speak unbiasedly from a consumer's perspective. So, if EA happens to come across this post, please message me, as I would love the opportunity to work on improving this game!

    Cash Grabs: My Disappointment with Madden NFL 24

    Sigh, I'm afraid I don't have many positive things to say about Madden NFL 24. It's disheartening that the game has remained largely stagnant, holding onto the same elements as its previous iterations... well, more like its past 5-10 iterations. It feels like EA Sports is just aiming for a cash grab every year, and this year is no exception.

    Pricey Players, Missing Content, and Reward Woes: A Costly Experience

    Spending around $600-700 and still not getting the player I aim for from packs is frustrating. Multiply that feeling of disappointment by 22, considering the entire team. It's honestly a complete rip-off. Every single content release up until now has been plagued with significant mistakes. One glaring example is that players who were supposed to be in the packs, the ones people pay real money for, are strangely absent. It's like paying for something and receiving only half of it.

    Imagine putting in hours of grinding for rewards and then not getting what you rightfully earned. What's even more exasperating is that this issue affects ALL users. It's a shared frustration. After what felt like forever, they finally addressed some of the missing rewards after waiting a month. Yet here we are again, waiting weeks for rewards from another promotion. And now, to add insult to injury, it appears that EA intentionally withholds rewards as a punishment for those of us who dared to voice our complaints. It's a deeply disappointing situation.

    Review for Madden NFL 24 on Xbox, PS4, and PS5

    I played Madden NFL 24 across Xbox, PS4, and PS5, and I was filled with anticipation, hoping this would be the year Madden truly delivers. Sadly, it felt like a rerun of past disappointments.

    Gameplay feels slightly smoother than in previous versions.
    Improved lighting and better-looking uniforms.

    Lack of innovation with minor adjustments and a few new animations that don't elevate the experience.
    Presentation lags behind other sports games like 2K and EA's Fifa.
    Feels outdated and clunky, especially on new-generation consoles.
    Technical issues abound laggy menus, gameplay bugs, and crashes on all platforms.
    Rehashed features presented as new, like the "Super Star Mode."

    It's terrible to see Madden, once an industry-leading franchise, reduced to what feels like a mere roster update with old features masquerading as new. I yearn for a football game crafted with genuine passion. For now, I remain skeptical about Madden delivering that experience. It might be time for us fans to demand better. But then again, haven't we been saying that for years?

    A worst graphics, slow speed and delay

    I had high hopes for Madden 24, but again, I feel disappointed by EA. They promised improved gameplay, but I found the game still heavily animation-dependent, lacking the physics-based impact they boasted about. I was among the many affected by the franchise glitch in Madden 23 and EA's solution. I was limiting beta codes and discounts to the deluxe version wasn't what they initially promised.

    I've noticed numerous gameplay issues, from unrealistic player reactions to flawed blocking logic. The game engine feels outdated, and it's clear that Madden 24 doesn't capture the essence of real football. I've been asking for physics-based gameplay mechanics for years, yet here we are again.

    It's hard for me to understand why the NFL continues to endorse a game that, in my opinion, misrepresents the sport. EA's main focus seems to be on their profit-driven modes, leaving the core franchise mode - which I love - in the dust. Even though other EA sports games have it, the fact that there's no cross-play in franchise mode feels like a slap in the face.

    And don't get me started on the server issues. I've experienced desyncs, latency problems, and more. I'm also concerned about the rumors of predetermined game outcomes and the promotion of MUT, which feels like gambling.

    I believe EA needs to step up and take responsibility for this release. I want a game that prioritizes quality and authenticity.
