Madden NFL 10 review


Madden NFL 10 review for PS3, Xbox 360, PC and Nintendo Wii Another year sees another roll-out of all EA’s sports franchises and Madden NFL 10 is no different. Here we see a couple of new gameplay innovations along with the ones which worked from previous years. First of all, let me say that the game’s presentation is fantastic. It really feels like you’re watching a football game on a Sunday and the player models and graphics make for a really great game atmosphere. It’s a shame the commentary doesn’t shape up so well but to be honest you can choose to ignore that, much like a member of your family trying to turf you off the console because they want to watch a rerun of Friends. I also like the fact there’s no calendar system in Franchise mode. Some of you will miss the opportunity to train your players between games but all I want to do is play the game so for me, this works. When on the gridiron play’s also been slowed down a bit so it’s now a bit simpler to see a defender charging towards you and make a pass or dive out of the way in time. There’s also the new Pro-Tak system at play which basically means multiple players can now go in to take down a player and you get even more realistic action on the field. SuperStar mode is also back so you can create a player and play through a whole career with your big muscle man. If you’re new to Madden games you’re also going to have to look for the holographic training section in the game. Last year you had to play through it at the start, now it’s hidden in the menus. It is there though so if you’re not sure of the rules or how to play, check it out and get with the programme dude. Online play has also been refined. There’s an online franchise mode and online co-op and everything’s been sped up to make sure your opponents don’t spend ages browsing through their plays before finally snapping the ball. Once again, as I always say with EA’s sports games, the game’s good but I’d only buy this over last year’s game if you really, really like American Football games. Madden NFL 10 gets a very good 7 out of 10.

  1. for americans its just football. and i love rugby! thats a real mans game none of these pussy NFL superstars makin 10 mil a game and get a owie on their toe right?

  2. yeah there aint nothing wrong with the game,i loved highschool football and collegde ball, but pro is so bleh. to centered around advertisments and money, not the love of the game. too much polotics.

  3. whats the point on making a new EA spotrs game every years?, cant that just put add ons instead, seems like EA could do alot more with that money.

  4. when playing online i hate it when they speed up the clock it doesnt give me enuff time to read the defence i just hope they take that out when they update the game again i just hate that and lost so many games cuz of that speed the clock

  5. 7 out of 10 ONLY??? gamespot gave it a 9.5 for all the good features is this guy insane 7 out of 10 really…??

  6. @ Both alrdd and 555MARCUS666 – Rugby is going to America (and getting quite popular) and is as good as American football, both of them are fantastic sports, so no need to insult each other… Peace.

  7. @alrdd American football players are significantly bigger than rugby players, and the type of collision that results from each play is much more dangerous. That's why they wear full body gear. In fact, even with full armor, players still get concussions and serious injuries. If you're using risk factor to measure how fun a sport is, then what you're saying is the same as calling a bike race more fun than a car race just 'cause bikers don't have steel car bodies for protection -_-
