Looks good on frostbite,smooth.

Gameplay on sim-all madden and slow

Is competitive without touching sliders at all.

I've enjoyed game so far, Longshot enjoyable.

Target system adds different type of skill to game,hard but worth it when comes off.

Glad finally brought coach adjustment to the game

Love the reavh out option tograb qb when close and engage in block

Good bye the qrt and dime run stop D..matching up personnel is key.

I've just watched somebody online play a game of Madden 17 until going into the 4th qtr I noticed in the bottom right hand corner it said 'Madden 18'!

Are we seriously paying 50 sheets for a copy of Madden 17 with a story mode!

Even the bloody commentary is the same as last year. I seriously can't see any difference. Can probably tell I'm not impressed.

Felt same way until,i played it on a TV in front of me.

It's better then 17 even if is a few things.but those changes my opinion work so far. First year under frostbite was always going be a learning year for madden team.

Nothing had changed. They haven't even recorded any new commentary. Poor effort

not entirely true.

i have seen some new animations and such.
Sim does seems to play true to the ratings although CPU games might need some slider adjustments still.
Seems very minor.

All-madden slow speed seems pretty good.

offense playbooks have been updated.

defense i have not dived into yet.

CFM has not been touched though although people can now set their draftboard.

Overall id say gameplay wise their is an improvement but im not blown away at all.
IF not for you guys i would not buy this game.

As long as EA makes the only NFL game it will be up to us to make it as enjoyable as possible.

MUT and the new long shot crap where a waste of resources but thats what the masses want...

So looks like madden 13 + frostbite graphics

+ tackles with hit sticks only 
+ runing game (not so big improvement as i was hoping for but at least now it have some logic)
+ off playbooks, finaly some changes  
+ draft in cfm, much more deep classes, with lot of 70-72 players 

- dont like the lightning in game, strange colors, but its my old problem with frostbite - dont like it at all 
- jukes, holy, smth must be changed 
- cfm speed regression, looks that they lied to us, its not changed 
- tackles, again lifeless dolphin dives 
- zone coverage too weak 
- and not so happy with default all pro, tried flazko sliders set from os, but it more for offline vs cpu (15 mins quarter)

Well, owing to time constraints I have only played the opening game so far. It annoys me that they insist youn play the bloody super bowl before you can do anything else, but hey ho.

Played as Falcons and upped the level to A/M (at least I think I did) and to my surprise won and found running easier. Turned off this receiver thing which I don't think will be  part of CCM. I thought the graphics were ok but started to get a bit jumpy and pixelated later on in the game.

Does anyone know when there is a) a roster update and b) another patch?

Going to start to get to work on fixtures and suchlike tonight.

Assuming that the roster update is out plus patch (if needed) then aim will be kick-off some time after 10 Sept or so.

Didn't we have this in one of the previous Maddens? They just get rid of it and bring it back a few years later saying it's a new feature.
