IGN (Aug 23, 2017)
The shift to the Frostbite Engine definitely lets Madden NFL 18 look fantastic, and Longshot makes great use of that to tell a short but powerful against-all-odds story. MUT Squads also opens up a new way to play with more than two players. But beyond that, the underwhelming feel of gameplay improvements and lack of much of anything new within Franchise, Madden NFL 18 sails wide-right in the final seconds. That said, being a much better-looking version of a solid football game with a great new story mode makes it at least a significant improvement, even if it’s more incremental than we’d hoped from a new game engine.

La franchise Madden est à l'image d'une équipe solide de NFL. Chaque année, elle enchaîne les passes et courses réussies pour progresser sur le terrain. Et plus qu'une simple progression, elle réussit chaque saison le touchdown. Madden NFL 18 ne déroge pas à la règle et consolide ses bases tout en apportant des nouveautés à son roster. L'immersion se voit alors favorisée par le nouveau moteur Frosbite, avec des visages bien plus convaicants qu'à l'accoutumée. Du pain béni pour le mode Aventure Longshot, qui s'avère être une réussite narrative, mais surtout pour le contenu gargantuesque de cette nouvelle itération. Ajoutez à celà une technique impeccable pour obtenir une simulation aussi grandiose que le show de la mi-temps du Super Bowl.

Gäbe es den schick inszenierten, größtenteils überzeugend gespielten sowie mitunter emotionalen Story-Modus "Longshot" nicht, wäre Madden NFL 18 definitiv nicht mehr als ein (Grafik-)Upgrade zum Vollpreis. Ja: Mit dem Umstieg von der ursprünglich exklusiv für EAs Sportspiele entwickelten Ignite- auf die Frostbite-Engine hat man sowohl bei der Qualität der Präsentation (Stichwort: Zuschauer), Physik, KI als auch allgemein bei der visuellen Güteklasse zugelegt. Doch mit dem Fokus auf den Engine-Wechsel sowie den von einem guten Drehbuch profitierenden „Longshot“ ist es nicht überraschend, dass sich hinsichtlich der Modi und des trotz reduzierter Spielgeschwindigkeit weitgehend unveränderten Spielgefühls wenig getan hat. Dementsprechend können alle, die auf die Story verzichten können und keine Lust auf die neuen kooperativen 3-gegen-3-Duelle im Ultimate Team haben, dieses Jahr warten oder ganz verzichten.

Madden 18 took a longshot in focusing on a story mode instead of creating bigger upgrades to the base game that their fans sink the most time into and it was ultimately a massive dud. While I respect them taking the chance to do something different, all they needed to do was replicate what they have already done in Fifa‘s story mode. Outside of the story mode, it is the same ‘ol Madden with a couple new noteworthy tweaks and additions that are welcome, but not at all enough to warrant a full price admission.
TrueAchievements (Aug 30, 2017)
The question at the heart of a new sports game in an annualized series is twofold: What does it do for yearly players and what does it do for those who may have been away for a while? If you haven't played in a few years, this year's Madden makes for a good time to jump in with the most diverse game modes ever on offer. The premiere of the series' story mode is inconsistent with regards to both narrative and gameplay, but it has enough highlights to merit playing through and hoping for an improved sequel. MUT Squads is also a refreshing way to play provided you find yourself attached to growing an Ultimate Team. For returning players, and those especially focused on Connected Franchise, there isn't enough here to welcome you back. Updated rosters and small on-field tweaks are the things we get every year but what really makes or breaks an installment of Madden are the big changes, which are up and down and ultimately make Madden 18 a solid starter but no Pro Bowler.
