    With its new and improved animations system, Madden 19 becomes the best in the series setting the bases of the path that the game will walk in the near future. The feel of real football in your hands is something unique, and the Longshot mode will make you feel that this game is worth.

    EA hit the mark in trying to renovate its football sim: graphics, gameplay, atmosphere and game modes are all in their best shape with the only exception of the Longshot mode, a bit too repetitive. If you skipped some Madden NFL games in the past in fear of the usual "more of the same", this one will definitely prove to be worth the buy.

    Madden 19 is an excellent football game that improves on last year's entry in almost every way. There are problems, but there has never been a football game that more authentically represents the NFL than this in terms of presentation, controls, and depth.

    Madden NFL 19 is more of an evolution than a revolution then, but what else did anyone expect? It’s a refinement of last year’s effort with further graphical prowess, more fluidity and a sprinkling of new features. It’s just a shame that its Longshot Homecoming mode is such a let-down.

    It's an incredibly solid game of football that hasn’t done a great job of putting it all together. I really like the tightened up player movement and all quality of life improvements in the franchise mode. But I can’t help but feel like the best of this franchise is still ahead of it. Madden NFL 19 is a fully-featured and well-playing enough and if you’re in the mood for some football, it's still the game to get.

    On the field it's still a fun game as always, but for the first time in a long time, it feels like little more than a roster update.

    Pros:

    Movement system is amazingly detailed and revamped

    MUT mode is absolutely amazing and the AI challenges are fun.

    Longshot single player game (to the people complaining, name one other football game that has a story?)

    Graphics on the Xbox one X are the best Graphics on a game yet.

    Multiplayer as always is a riot and fun.

    Cons:
    Music is all rap crap.
    A glitch here or there however it just came out so expect patches.

    If you have skipped the past few Madden NFL Games and/or are an avid fan, I highly Suggest getting this game.

    This is the best madden in 5 years. There is a definitive difference in graphics and gameplay. They've made Ultimate Team a lot more fun nowThis is the best madden in 5 years. There is a definitive difference in graphics and gameplay. They've made Ultimate Team a lot more fun now with being able to upgrade your players through training. The only thing I would change is to make you feel more in control in CFM. You can only work with one team where in past maddens (EX: Madden 12) you could control all 32 teams. Expand

The animations recieved a much needed upgrade, and crowds look the best they've ever been in a madden game. Some modes, like Franchise mode recieved some nice upgrades (the ratings upgrade system is significantly improved), but was largely left ignored. I'm biased in sports games because these mods are my favorite in sports game, but Madden has largely left these modes ignored for the fifth year in a row. That said, there's still plenty of good. The commentary is improving, the sounds on the field are realistic, and the overall presentation is solid, with the execption of replays, which often times leave you on an awkward angle where you can't even see the play.

    Without question, the most infuriating mode is Home Coming. The mode is absoletely a joke, lasting a mere 3 hours without completing an NFL season (again). This mode is an embarrasement to sports gaming and needs to be done, from the ground up.

Madden 19 is no different from previous Maddens, other than graphics and micro-transactions. I try my best to give every game a fair shake. Sure the core game play is fun but the Ultimate Team mode is Pay to win no doubt. It's lack luster when it comes to new content. There's nothing new or exciting when it comes to this game. You might as well play Madden NFL 18 or 17 or 16. This game is a copy and paste, don't waste your money on buying a game you already bought just given a new skin and a new name. Expand

They say the player movement is better; it is not. The halftime show is ridiculous, and they leave out all the highlights that should’ve been important. They haven’t learned their lesson from Battlefront 2. And I have to buy the $80 version just to create my own team? Let them know with your wallets. Expand

    Don't pay attention to those PAID reviewers this game is trash.

    Bad animation
    Cheesy story mode
    Pathetic catches
    Screentearing (IN 2018!!!!)
    Microtransactions for a $60 game no surprise from EA
    EA Ultimate team is worth $800 million? lol
    Ugly textures
    Lazy Highlights
    Characters having the same face in character creations (Im dead serious)
    Pathetic presentation starting games.
    EA's Executives stole 46 million from people and went on retirement.
    Halftime report doesn't show you the best moments you had.
    Our favorite gaming journalists sucking EA's balls again suckering everyone to buy this piece of trash.
    Every year sports games are getting worse and worse since 2013 or heck back in 2006 but it got better since then but in 8th gen consoles plz don't buy sports games from EA.
