Madden 18 is a good game to play if you are really interested in sports. Over the last 2 year the graphics have gotten better and also they have added new things like longshot and draft champions so the players don't lose interest in the game. They have also fixed all the glitches that they used to have and the screen passes aren't as glitchy as they were last year. There are also a lot of bad things about the game. They have made the juke moves and spin moves very overpowered and so they are rigged and they also make the game very easily to get mad it. It also makes everything look ver over realistic which brings noi fun in the game. Also when the QB runs there is a defender standing right infront of him and the he just stands there watching him walk into the endzone. Receivers are out running their coverage and they still somehow are dropping passes which makes noe smese. The hitstick is also ver overpowered.
Madden is an excellent franchise, you can control a team's future, play just individual skirmishes or even build a singular player's career. If you like football and what goes on just beyond supporting a team, you'll like the game. The only downside is they release a new one every year that is very similar, but generally has enough improvements for me to make the leap, thereby 'stealing' my $60 haha
My son is 16 and Madden 18 is one of his favorite games. He plays it online as well as offline. It is great for most all ages and makes a great Christmas gift each year as a new edition has usually hit the market within the year.
Pricing for these games has gotten outrageous but on sale, it was worth it. My 10 year old loves it. He enjoyed story mode although it was very long and all the features you can do in the game like making your own teams, player, etc.
