Developed by the prominent gaming company – Electronic Arts Inc – Madden NFL 16 is an American football video game which is based on the National Football League. The game was released in the year 2015.
The game boasts of bewitching graphics. The players, their jersey, the audience, the stadium, and the entire area has been meticulously designed and crafted. Each and every element in the game flaunts their high-definition graphics which elevate the adventure quotient of the game to a new height. The running actions, the eyes movements, and the shadow effect of the players further blow life to the whole of the gaming experience.
Because the Madden NFL 16 is a sports genre game, there is no one story that runs throughout. You can simply start the game, choose your own team, choose an opponent team and get into the action mode.
However, the start of the game is quite interesting and worth watching. It starts with a Super Bowl 50 match where you play as Pittsburgh Steelers against Arizona Cardinals. This particular match serves as the training session where you learn how to throw the ball, how to catch the pass, how to defend, etc.
Once the training session concludes, you can choose from the different gaming modes that the game has to offer to you. There is an Ultimate Team mode, Draft Champions mode, Franchise mode, etc. There is an option to quickly get into the game mode or to get into the practice mode. Also, you can choose ‘Online Head to Head Mode’ to play online with others.
There are amazing new controls and mechanism to control your team members, as well as, their passes. With these new controls, you can deliver passes exactly where they need to be placed. If your receiver is heavily guarded with a defender, go with an “aggressive catch” (default is the Triangle button). There are also controls to make your player catch the ball in stride. All in all, the game comes with effective controls that help you control your players and their actions on the field precisely.
Replay value: 4
Leaving this game after playing few matches is easier said than done. The Super Bowl mode, the online mode are some of the gaming modes that don’t just make you addictive but also encourage you to play the game again and again. The high replay value can also be accredited to high-quality graphics and the sound effects that have integrated into Madden NFL 16.
If American Football is one such sport that you love the most, then this NFL-based video game is sure to manifold your affection towards it. The thrill of passing your ball, the excitement to catch it, the struggle of defending it from the opposite team and the merriment of touching it down all fuse together to make the game all the more entertaining, adventurous and exciting.
