New Enhancements to the Game Play Leads to Mixed Results
The problems in Madden 16 that were addressed were primarily the overpowered catching, the improvement to the running game, and my personal favorite addition the improved kicking format. In Madden 16 the deep ball was a real problem to cover with the aggressive catch option being too useful. EA looks to have improved the secondaries covering ability while also decreasing the receivers ability to make the catch. This is not just deep balls either, every catch is not guaranteed as the player will need to do their best to give their receiver enough space and proper timing to catch the ball. This makes the game more realistic, I think as receivers do have a tendency to drop balls or the QB miss throws the ball as well.
The running game is more user friendly than has been sense I can remember. We now have a better ability to control the back through open holes while also performing special moves with the left trigger. The special moves is a risk/ reward though as fumbles occur far more often when they are performed. Speaking of fumbles the glaring issue on the offensive side is the QB fumbles. I don't know what it is but the QB has a tendency to fumble the ball more often than throwing the ball when the defense is coming for a sack. Usually the QB gets the ball off in a forward motion in previous games.
The kicking is all new with instead of the simple flick of the right stick, the user will now need to time his or her clicks in order to perfect the kick. Nothing is guaranteed now, not even the extra points! You can now freeze the kicker to increase the pressure and more likely cause a wide right miss to occur.
This doesn't have to do with the core game play but I enjoy MUT and what they have finally done puts a smile on my face. The chemistry actually matters and can be tracked! If you complete one of the chemistry boosts the increase will actually show up on the card. This makes me feel better as I could never tell if the player was actually receiving an increase in stats. Continuing on with the chemistry, there is a ton of different options that lead to better boosts for players. Usually there was just the 8 but now I count over 50 different options and they keep adding. This helps differentiate your team from others online. Online play feels more balanced as H2H seasons is gone and they went with the draft champions format for all online options, so we are not stuck playing games with no chance of making the playoffs. The rewards have also improved as a single victory still leaves you with something.
Madden stills has a way to go to become great again but this is definitely another step in the right direction.
