Madden 15 is the 27th game in the extremely popular American EA sporting franchise. As they’ve done with previous years, EA allowed NFL fans to vote via ESPN to select who they wanted to see on the cover of the game. The vote lasted less time that previous years due to a later than normal release of the game. Seattle Seahawk player Richard Sherman was the chosen cover man for 2015.
EA Sports have always been praised on their wonderful presentation and Madden 15 is a great example of why they’re the leading sporting developer. Players have more detail and personality than ever before. Animation is smoother than it’s ever been but not without some glitches. What fun would the game be without them? Improved lighting means that light now reflects directly off players. Crowds are much more full and alive than ever before and bring a bigger amount of atmosphere to the game.
As always, a great soundtrack and commentary accompany this iteration of Madden. The commentary in particular seems a lot less repetitive than in years past and seems to match the situation a lot more closely. There is a high emphasis on replays that take place in key moments and this is well appreciated in highlighting the big hits and great touchdowns.
