Madden 16 Review

It has become popular to hate on the Madden franchise in recent years. When you corner the market on NFL video games for consoles, people expect more from you and resent you if you don’t live up to their expectations. Such is the case with Madden. Year after year, the team at EA puts out a solid product, if unspectacular product.

As the third entry on the current console generation, Madden NFL 16 doesn’t feel like a rehash of past years. There are redesigns, quality of life changes, and gameplay alterations that feel like they’ve been in the works for quite some time. Desperately needed changes to the passing game, new controls, all-new animations, a more intuitive UI, and a new scouting system make Madden 16 feel like more than a fresh paint of coat.

But are the changes enough to convince weary fans to get the latest version in the franchise? Let’s go over the pros and cons so you can decide for yourself.

The Positives / The Negatives

Microsoft has revealed this week's Deals with Gold for the Xbox One and Xbox 360, bringing tons of games to Xbox owners at a discount. It appears as though this week's deals might make up for the lackluster May lineup that Games with Gold is offering.

Xbox  Live Gold members can find a number of major titles on sale this week, starting with Assassin's Creed Syndicate, expanding to the new Hitman game and to Madden NFL 16. They might not be free, but at least some of the games are up to 60% off! 

If marked with an asterisk (*), the game is available to both Xbox Live Gold members and Silver members.
