Last year Madden was able to establish itself back within the upper-echelon of sports titles, finishing second in the Press Row Podcast Sports Game of the Year voting. Madden NFL 18 hopes to build on that success with the introduction of the series’ first ever story mode, the return of online co-op, three new play styles, visual enhancements made possible due to the Frostbite Engine, and number of gameplay improvements.

In this episode initial impressions of Madden NFL 18 are discussed, going over changes to gameplay, Franchise, Ultimate Team, and of course the highly-anticipated Longshot. There’s some agreement on where Madden stands with this edition but also places where opinions diverge. For more on Madden NFL 18 the full panel review show will go out next week!

Check out the podcast through iTunes for iOS, on Android with the Stitcher app, or with Pocket Casts on iOS, Android, and Windows.

    Over at OS, 54% of the people who have played the game on EA Access or watched videos are buying or leaning towards buying, while 46% say they’re passing or leaning towards passing on the game.

    At that rate, EA may find itself bumping off the free weekend to mid-September and giving away free copies with every Large Papa Johns ordered by mid-October…lol.

    Think this sums up the game nicely

    Most reviewers putting too much weight on that short little story that you’ll only play once
